Lindsey Graham: A “New Nazi”

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) wholeheartedly approves of the federal government’s massive Orwellian domestic spying initiative. Not only that, Graham wants to hunt down the heroic contractor who exposed this unprecedented intrusion on liberty and prosecute him for treason. Or at least he wants other people to do that ……

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) wholeheartedly approves of the federal government’s massive Orwellian domestic spying initiative. Not only that, Graham wants to hunt down the heroic contractor who exposed this unprecedented intrusion on liberty and prosecute him for treason.

Or at least he wants other people to do that … obviously Graham isn’t going to do it himself.

Why is he adopting this position? Because Graham – like U.S. President Barack Obama and other fascist leaders in Washington, D.C. – are 100 percent secure in the knowledge that they are governing a nation of frightened sheep. And at the moment they are.

In other words they are doing this to us because they can … because we are letting them.

In fact Graham isn’t content with the establishment of a $4 billion national snooping center created to monitor Americans’ internet searches, phone records, emails, social media posts, online purchases, travel bookings, etc. He would actually take this surveillance one step further by authorizing searches of our mail.

“In World War II, the mentality of the public was that our whole way of life was at risk, we’re all in,” Graham told reporters in Washington, D.C. this week. “We censored the mail. When you wrote a letter overseas, it got censored. When a letter was written back from the battlefield to home, they looked at what was in the letter to make sure they were not tipping off the enemy. If I thought censoring the mail was necessary, I would suggest it, but I don’t think it is.”

Graham went on to say that “the First Amendment right to speak is sacrosanct, but it has limits.”

Wow … how Jim Clyburn of him.

This guy is truly amazing, isn’t he? Seriously … we knew he was a warmonger. And a special interest whore. And a fiscal liberal. And a Barack Obama abettor.

But the extent to which Graham is embracing big government’s assault on our most basic liberties is frightening … although not as frightening as the extent to which “We The People” are accommodating him and those of his ilk.

“Lindsey would have voted for the Alien and Sedition Acts!” one limited government advocate in Washington told us. “You can just picture him strutting around in his SS uniform looking longingly into every mirror he passes, getting just a tad moist whenever John McCiain – Der Fuhrer – strolls past.”

HA! Amen, sister … amen.

Graham has one thing right, though … “our whole way of life” is indeed at risk. But it’s not because of radical Islam or some other convenient bogeyman. It’s because of our own government. And specifically politicians like Graham who want us to dig deeper in debt on behalf of a government that reserves unto itself the unilateral right to monitor our every move.

Interestingly, Graham has claimed that he would be fine with the government snooping through his personal records, but we’re not quite so sure about that. In fact we can think of at least one trip to Ireland taken by the Senator in the not-too-distant past that he probably wouldn’t want anyone knowing about. Were there any Expedia searches related to that little getaway, Senator? Any emails, text messages of phone calls with your traveling companion you’d like to share?

Because we would be more than happy to print those records along with the rest of your private correspondence …

So when do the internment camps start? Because we did that shit to Japanese-Americans back in WW2. Let’s detain ALL the brown people, THEN we’ll be safe!

Seriously, fuck Graham.

How can those guys keep their personal lives so personal? Mark had an e-mail affair with an Argentine for 10 years without anyone suspecting anything and Lindsay goes to Ireland and no one knows who he was with and where they stayed. What school did they go to to learn how to cover their tracks while playing the field?

So you wanna cry about the data mining. So lets say the gubmint shuts it down. Then we have another bombing. Then you will all be crying about the terrorist. The other day our conservative SCOTUS delivered another kick to the balls of the 4th amendment with nary a whimper from the teabots or liberals. What’s up with that? Every police department in Amurka is using highway cameras and plate readers but no outrage. Methinks you whine too much about the wrong shit.

Now Graham is a Nazi (!), the same people who begat a war that killed tens of millions of people, with almost half of Europe’s Jews dead. What a perfectly reasonable historical analogy to a senator who doesn’t think data mining (!) is an affront to personal liberty. Since the Nazis murdered countless dissenters, I guess Will Folks–whose 1st Amendment rights must be under constant siege for his truth-telling–is showing bravery as immense as his waistline just to post this.

Just curious, can anybody give me one example of how “the federal governments’s massive Orwellian domestic spying initiative” has harmed one single American, other than an assault on our so-called precious and oft-misunderstood “rights.”. You have to wonder if those hundreds of Americans who died on 9/11 might have been willing to give up a little of those civil rights for the right to live a long life. There is no American freedom more basic than the right to live safely. Jeffrson’s phrase “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty” applies to that right if it applies to any.

afmajret June 13, 2013 at 1:36 pm

Where, exactly, did you find a ‘right’ to live safely? Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness yes; safety – not so much. And Thomas Jefferson (I presume that is who you were quoting inappropriately since you butchered the spelling of his name) is spinning around (never mind rolling over) in his grave because his quote expressly means making sure the government doesn’t become tyrannical (you know, like King George and the House of Lords in 1775) again. Here is a Jefferson quote appropriate to the situation:

“When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

Get a clue.

Gillon June 13, 2013 at 2:49 pm

Thanks for catching the Jefferson typo, and since you are such a stickler for accuracy, I’m sure you meant the House of Commons rather than the House of Lords when you were referring to tyranny (you might look that up while you are researching quotes.)
Finally, is it your argument that the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness does not also imply living in safety? If it is, that’s just ignorance.
