Political theater that was fresh in Rome circa 1922....

....Obama "astroturfs" events with "hecklers" demanding that he engage in power-grabs.

Yet even with the small turnout, there was a theme amongst Obama’s protesters/supporters (supportesters?): They didn’t want him to change his political agenda — instead, they demanded that he assume dictatorial powers so that he could finally implement the radical plans with which they already agree. The message of the day was: Stop dilly-dallying around, Mr. President: Ignore the Constitution and just make The Revolution happen, as you promised!

That message would be disturbing enough all on its own, but it becomes much more disturbing when you suspect (as I do) that many of these pro-totalitarian protesters were astroturfed. In other words: Is the White House scripting/encouraging/guiding protesters on the left to beg him to become a dictator? So that later, he can explain, “I had no choice — the people demanded it!” Or is Obama simply telegraphing to his supporters that they should not be so disappointed when he throws in the towel and gives up even trying to achieve anything in his second term?

Let’s see what happened on Monday, and you can judge for yourself.

Look at the photos.

Wasn't the anti-nuke hippy movement of the 60s instigated by communist Russia? And weren't the communists behind the anarchists at Berkeley and the anti-war demonstrations during the 50s/60s?

Lying, cheating, stealing and killing isn't below this Administration of Obama's--how much of a stretch would paid protesting be?
