Twatwatch - Paul Broun

It's been a while since a TW was bought out, but it's time to dust off this bad boy and apply it to one (1) Paul Broun, a US representative in the ... Republican party.

You couldn't have guessed he was GOP could you?


The fact that Obama is president elect is obviously still sinking in for some people.

Paul's spent the time since 4 Nov contemplating a future Obama presidency. According to the wiki entry here's what he's decided is possible...


On November 10, 2008, one week after the 2008 presidential election, Broun drew national attention when he criticized
President-elect Barack Obama's call for a civilian national security force, suggesting that Obama might use it to establish a Marxist dictatorship.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Broun said, "That's exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it's exactly what the Soviet Union did. When he's proposing to have a national security force that's answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he's showing me signs of being Marxist." Broun later clarified his statement by saying, "We can't be lulled into complacency. You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I'm not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I'm saying is there is the potential of going down that road."


Classy.


With thanks to the profiling of this dude by the Nov 13 Episode of The Daily Show.

Oh, the wiki entry notes that the next day he backed away from the statements, then later, re-embraced them.

Now ... who does that remind me of?













UPDATE: I read some more of this dude's wiki.

Check this shit out.

Broun introduced a military anti-pornography bill into the House of Representatives. The bill is meant to stem the sales of pornography on U.S military installations. This bill basically notes that the there should be no loopholes in a former piece of legislation (Title 10 of the United States code), effectively banning military personnel from viewing pornography (Now entitled the "Military Honor and Decency Act"). According to Broun's website, legislation will only be passed based on his "Four Way Test", which includes, "1) Is it moral/right?, 2) Is it constitutional?, 3) Is it necessary?, and 4) Is it affordable?"

If anyone deserves access to stick mags it's lads / ladies stuck in a fucking war zone. There they are, removed often many hundreds of miles away from their preferred genital access point, in highly stressed and dangerous circumstances, and this tard wants to retard the GI's ability to perform a solo on the pink flute / M&M.

Unbelievable.

Apparently Broun is a medical doctor. I think someone needs to check he didn't purchase his qual from a degree mill for god's sake.

What is it with the GOP and their ability to elect people who put ideology ahead of reality?
