Rumsfeld finds Fascists everywhere but??

... in the mirror.

It borders on the absurd to think that anyone in this Administration would dare call any opponent a 'Fascist'. Classically defined fascists, and fascist governments unite under the joined power of business interests.

Yet ye dare not call any Republican in this Administration one...

FLASH: Keith Olbermann has a great take on this, I found it at Buzzflash.com ...who received it from CROOKS and LIARS “I'm not worthy, I'm not...” :-)

They who, under Bush, Rove and Cheney, have brought together the Halliburton-Exxon vision of the future; the scorched-earth policies that forced EPA to deny air quality in post-11 September New York City... forced CIA experts to 'massage' the data tying the regime of Saddam Hussein to the perps of 9-11... they who stumped in 2002 against Democratic Senatorial and Congressional candidates with mind-numbing techno-media sorcery in order to win the Congress that gave them Iraq on a silver Halliburton platter... they who, with the 'vision' of AG Alberto Gonzales, DAG John Yoo and staff, created extra-legal modalities for the forced torture and renditions of non-combatant prisoners...

No Fascism there??

When the country that helped institutionalize the Geneva Conventions passes into a modality to evade those same international laws ...

Halliburton, the one corporation that singularly defines what Ayn Rand labeled as 'moochers' (Atlas Shrugged), and the private military-security forces that have created their own mercenary forces...

Katrina (yesterday's post, below), created another 'disaster' that allowed those Bush-worshiping companies to come home and rip off taxpayers closer to home...

But so the Islamofascists (a never-before-known term, introduced into BushSpeak a week or more back) are threatening, and subverting the media?

Quoting AP (via Yahoo!):

"What bothers me the most is how clever the enemy is," he [ed: Rumsfeld] continued, launching an extensive broadside at Islamic extremist groups which he said are trying to undermine Western support for the war on terror.

"They are actively manipulating the media in this country" by, for example, falsely blaming U.S. troops for civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan, he said.

"They can lie with impunity," he said, while U.S. troops are held to a high standard of conduct.

Let's be clear on one thing; there is an Army, or Military Code of Conduct. There are an overwhelming number of our forces that adhere to that. But as the prior post today showed, there exists a faction within our Forces, for which this war has allowed the most aggressive of American soldiers to come unglued.

Fascism reigns supreme within the United States of America... Whether it can be withdrawn from 'our democracy' must be regarded as pivotal to the future of our planet.

If only G.H.W. Bush and James Baker III had been in the Peace Corps in the Sixties...
