Tucker Carlson: Obama Admin "Getting Into Soviet Territory" With Actors Shilling For Obamacare
realclearpolitics.com ^ | December 18, 2013

Posted on 12/19/2013 8:44:36 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe

TUCKER CARLSON: They are transparently committed to propaganda. And I will say this, the fact that they have suborned all these actors and comedians, that they're entering in to partnership with Funny or Die -- Will Ferrell's website -- or Amy Poehler to sell Obamacare, I mean, when you have entertainment figures acting as shills for government, that's kind of getting in to soviet territory.

They “got into” Soviet Territory in 2009. They’re in Romanian or North Korean territory and quickly going beyond that.

” - - - CARLSON: I’m not saying it’s new or not, it’s disturbing.

LIASSON: Yeah, but Obama isn’t the only administration that’s done this. - - - “

Notice how typical Liberal Liasson resorts to changing the subject whenever her guy is guilty.

Actually, I’m thinking that BO’s use of the NSA and IRS closer to that of totalitarian regimes.

Pajama Boy is just downright pathetic. If I was a Democrat, I would feel embarrassed for BO.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

I’m sure they’ll be ‘Progressives’ who don’t understand that Obamacare does NOT have an opt out clause and IS government FORCE! These actors must see themselves among the elite ruling class who know what’s best for the dumb masses.

They’re worse than the soviets.... We just don’t know the depths they’ve sunken to yet.

I agree, Carlson...so why aren't we talking about building a conservative/patriotic pop culture to counter the monopoly the Left has had on it for decades?

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

When Putin sounds conservative and almost reasonable next to Obama, you know we have gone way too far into lefty land.

Any time you get a liberal in a position they can’t dispute they always resort to the “they all do it” excuse.

Not just the ‘talking heads’ but the average liberal on the street uses the same excuse constantly. When they say it, you know you’ve won the point but they’ll never admit it.

Even if any other president in our time had acted in a soviet-like way, for Mara Liasson to act as if nothing has happened in this country over the last 5 years of Obama that should raise alarm bills...like this is just business as usual. ugh I have always dispised that propagandistic bioch!

Good Points!

I believe that is called “peer group morality.”

“Everybody does it so it is okay to do the same thing.”

BTW, aren’t adults supposed to grow out of the pre-teen peer group morality?

When liberals ‘grow up’ they become conservatives.
The one’s who don’t are stunted and in denial.

progressives are hardly known to behave in an adult manner. Temper tantrums and name calling are more like it.

Actually the term that came to mind is "tu quoque".

As in, well, YOU do it too!

I see this a LOT in liberal arguments.

It's a logical fallacy.

Similar to what you wrote. "Appeal to authority."

Another logical fallacy.

Obama was already deep in Soviet territory five years ago.
