Obama’s Preventative IncarcerationSunday, June 28, 2009
Rachel Maddow is furious at her man of change, Barack Obama. Seems the “change” these imbeciles claimed was coming just isn’t going to materialize from the new regime. Obama has proposed preventative, indefinite detention for individuals who the state deems to be potential enemies.
“We’ve known this is on the horizon for many years, but we were able to hold it off with George Bush. The idea that we might find ourselves fighting with the Obama administration over these powers is really stunning.”
No, it’s not “stunning” to most of us who understand that regime change among party lines offers no “change” whatsoever. The “change” hype was nothing more than juvenile propaganda for dumbed-down idiots. Even staunch Obama supporter Maddow claims she was stunned that Messiah Obama called for the power to indefinitely imprison people because they may commit crimes sometime in the future.
Obama, in his speech, calls for “clear, defensible, and lawful standards” for those who “fall in the category” of preventative detention. He said prolonged detention must be “thoroughly evaluated and justified.” He calls this a “legitimate, legal framework” for imprisonment. Maddow notes that Obama is constructing an illegal system outside of the system in which to make indefinite detention legal. Rachel, this is once where you’ve done right this year. Keep it up.
Obama’s speech was conducted, according to Maddow, inside the National Archives, in front of the original U.S. Constitution. Yes, there’s a purposeful and perverted message in that.
