Says Obama has three key primers to suppress freedom of American people
Thursday, Sept 3, 2009
Republican Congressman Paul Broun has once again warned that the US is being slowly transformed into a police state dictatorship.
Broun, R-Athens, Georgia, told over a thousand people at town hall events Wednesday in Madison and Greene County that elites under Obama are “developing a shadow government that (does not) answer to the American people.”
“He has the three things that are necessary to establish an authoritarian government,” Broun said, citing a national federalized police force, gun control and control over the press.
“And so we need to be ever-vigilant, because freedom is precious.” Broun added.
The Congressman effectively repeated the warning he first made vocal last November when he spoke out against Obama’s plan to create a “national civilian security force,” warning that the program sounded like a 21st century Gestapo and that it was part of a move towards a Marxist dictatorship.
“That’s exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did,” Broun said at the time. “When he’s proposing to have a national security force that’s answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he’s showing me signs of being Marxist.”
“We can’t be lulled into complacency,” Broun said. “You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I’m not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I’m saying is there is the potential of going down that road.”

A report on Broun’s comments in the Athens Banner-Herald states that in the July 2008 speech Obama was actually referring to a proposed expansion of the Americorps volunteer program, not a national security force. However, back in November, Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor told the Associated Press that Obama was referring to a proposal for a civilian reserve corps that could handle postwar reconstruction.
This was set in motion in January of this year when The Defense Department announced the establishment of a “civilian expeditionary workforce” that will see American civilians trained and equipped to deploy overseas in support of worldwide military missions.
We have also highlighted the ongoing push to merge the Army Reserves and the National Guard into the “Total Force” of the US military, and to deploy 40,000 troops inside the US under NORTHCOM, to deal with “domestic catastrophe” and “civil unrest and crowd control”.
Last month Congressman Broun also warned attendees of a town hall event that the Obama administration was planning to use a pandemic or a natural disaster to implement martial law in the United States.
Speaking at the North Georgia Technical College auditorium, Broun said that the “socialistic elite,” as well as Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, were planning to exploit a crisis to create a favorable climate for their stalling political agenda.
“They’re trying to develop an environment where they can take over,” he said. “We’ve seen that historically.”
