You want me to believe that in this huge world of political leaders, thinkers, writers, activists and ordinary interested citizens, the only people, in the world
, who have noticed that Barack Obama is a "fascist" is a small minority of extremely right wing people who detest him on principle
America is the world's largest economy. It is the most powerful military force in the world. It is still a world leader.
We in the rest of the world discuss America. We write about it and talk about it a lot.
If America were to implement fascist policies, we would notice. We would, indeed, be very alarmed. Barack Obama's fascist policies would cause a fundamental realignment of alliances and
(at this point I have to interject that Barack Obama is not a fucking fascist and this whole discussion is, I repeat, FUCKING RETARDED)
would affect the global body politic in the most revolutionary ways.
Has this happened?
No. It has not.
Is anyone discussing Obama's radical new plans for America, and the evil revolution he is planning, anywhere in this world which discusses American politics so obsessively?
No. they are not.
And the reason these things have not happened is because Barack Obama has not implemented fascist policies.
Do you understand this?
When you look at the global context in which your government is enacting policy, and when you go to Wikipedia and actually fucking LOOK UP the term "fascist" and the term "socialist", you will see that:
a) Barack Obama is economically to the right of most centrist European governments, which are not "fascist" or "socialist"
b) Barack Obama's social policies are absolutely in the tradition of wimpy Democrats (Clinton tried health care reform, and he is not a "fascist") and the bill passed is like previous Republican submissions (and Republicans are not "socialists")
c) Barack Obama is bit of wimpy centrist
d) This argument is fucking retarded
e) And now I've spelled out reasons why you are wrong, you may concentrate on the word "retarded" and ignore the other points I've made, because this will be easier for you than actually making a substantive response.
