Obama Unveils More Fascism by Decree in State of the Union

Obama's State of the Union address suggests a radical vision for America entailing economic fascism, rule by decree, and more trampling of the Constitution.

After a devastating 2013 for Obama and perceptions of his radical agenda — indeed, a majority of the public now says he is incompetent and a threat to freedom — the president promised in his State of the Union speech to accelerate the imposition of central planning and economic fascism on America. If Congress refuses to cooperate, he will use “executive action.” From seizing more land and attacking gun rights to redistributing wealth and working to get the “youngest children” into government care that “they need,” the president vowed to impose his extreme vision — fundamentally at odds with the U.S. Constitution — all on his own if need be.

The anti-constitutional plans outlined by Obama were interspersed with lip service to American values, a wide array of real and imagined positive developments that happened to occur under his presidency, along with multiple highly emotional individual stories in support of his agenda. At times, though, the State of Union speech sounded more like the ranting of a socialist third-world dictator unconstrained by a legislature or constitution than the words of a U.S. president who took an oath to uphold and defend the Supreme Law of the Land.

“America does not stand still — and neither will I,” Obama threatened. “So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.” In a bizarre twist noted by multiple analysts, lawmakers — presumably mostly Democrats — stood up and clapped after the president essentially threatened to make Congress irrelevant if it did not submit to his extreme and unconstitutional demands. Ironically, Obama also cited multiple examples proving that government meddling is not necessary for Americans to succeed — or is in fact counterproductive.

Fascist-style public-private partnerships will be a key component of the new Obama economy, he explained without using the word fascism, which Italian despot Benito “Il Duce” Mussolini defined as the merger of business and the state. “My administration has launched two hubs for high-tech manufacturing in Raleigh and Youngstown, where we’ve connected businesses to research universities that can help America lead the world in advanced technologies,” he said, touting his efforts to commandeer existing businesses to serve his priorities as well. “Tonight, I’m announcing we’ll launch six more this year.” He also called on Congress to support and expand the scheming.

As in Communist China, the president also boasted of how government was “investing” in the economy with wealth extracted from the public. “Over the past five years, my administration has made more loans to small business owners than any other,” he boasted, omitting the fact that all of that capital was first siphoned out of the productive sector of the economy — by force. “Taken together, our energy policy is creating jobs and leading to a cleaner, safer planet.” The government shall be the creator of jobs, Obama indicated repeatedly, despite the vast historical record showing that government is a poor “investor,” to put it mildly.
