You need to read this to believe it. Yes, it is that bad.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Orson Scott Card:
Barack Obama needs to have a source of military power that is under his direct control. Like Hitler, he needs a powerful domestic army to terrify any opposition that might arise.
Obama called for a "national police force" in 2008, though he never gave a clue about why such a thing would be necessary. We have the National Guard. We have the armed forces. The FBI. The Secret Service. And all the local and state police forces.
The trouble is that all of these groups have long independent histories and none of them is reliably under Barack Obama's personal control. He needs Brown Shirts -- thugs who will do his bidding without any reference to law.
Obama will claim we need a national police force in order to fight terrorism and crime. The Boston bombing is a useful start, especially when combined with random shootings by crazy people.
Where will he get his "national police"? The NaPo will be recruited from "young out-of-work urban men" and it will be hailed as a cure for the economic malaise of the inner cities.
In other words, Obama will put a thin veneer of training and military structure on urban gangs, and send them out to channel their violence against Obama's enemies.
Instead of doing drive-by shootings in their own neighborhoods, these young thugs will do beatings and murders of people "trying to escape" -- people who all seem to be leaders and members of groups that oppose Obama.
Already the thugs who serve the far left agenda of Obama's team do systematic character assassination as a means of intimidating their opponents into silence. Butphysical beatings and "legal" disappearances will be even more effective -- as Hitler and Putin and many other dictators have demonstrated over and over.But it's satire, right? It's fiction, right? Ha ha!
Nope, sorry. This is proof that Orson Scott Card is just a high-functioning racist jackass. This is where you have to separate the man and his art and see that both are part and parcel of the same ignorant filth that continues to populate a world in which you can say things like this about the President of the United States of America.
Whenever someone would compare Bush to Hitler, I would always laugh and say, no, sorry. You can't compare Bush and Hitler because that's crazy. You can be opposed to Bush but you still can't say he was Hitler, so knock it off, Chumley, and crawl back to 2007.
Orson Scott Card is out of his goddamned mind. And if you read his books and support his lifestyle and if you plan on seeing Ender's Game, you should be ashamed of yourself. Specifically, Harrison Ford should be ashamed of himself for not denouncing Card when he had the chance. Associations matter, especially when you consider the fact that Card has probably been asked to shut up until after the movie comes out. The fact that he continues to peddle his craziness is worthy of praise. Card simply won't run away from being a hateful bigot. The marketplace should speak to that.
And I mean that--Card should NOT be censored. His views should be exposed for what they are and the marketplace of ideas should be allowed to respond.
How can you take this goober seriously? That's Card, not Ford, but I can see where you mixed them up.
