Hey, Folks. Got one for you here….
This has something about Ron Paul in the title but it is not about Ron Paul. He is only mentioned in regards to the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007.
This is a 45 minute talk by Naomi Wolf. She is an author who has an elderly friend who kept telling her that different things that have happened since we started this “War on Terror” are like what happened in the early 30’s in Germany. She thought it was rhetoric and brushed it off. Finally, she started reading Goebbels and things about Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Pinochet…and now she has written a book, The End of America. In the book and in this talk, she tells the steps a leader goes through to close down a society. She said there is a blueprint for this. And it starts with “Invoke a terrifying internal and external threat. And very often this threat can be real. And they’ll hype it or use it manipulatively.” Next comes “Create a secret prison system where torture takes place that is outside the rule of law. And very often they establish military tribunals that will also strip prisoners of due process.” It goes on to creating a paramilitary force (such as Blackwater, which patrolled in New Orleans after Katrina) and a surveillance apparatus aimed at citizens and more. She gives examples of these things happening here and now. These are documented things we have heard in the news. And they are some of the same things these dictators did. She is on “the list” to be searched at airports and had a letter from Homeland Security placed in her luggage. It’s a riveting 45 minutes!! OH! And I wondered what on earth this firing of US Attorneys was all about. We heard so many conflicting stories. Now I know since I saw this video.
The good news is that it is not too late!! Millions of us together can fight back and one way is to urge our representatives to support the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007.
