Suspected Fascists in Obama Administration


By Mike Ghouse


12November, 2008


Fascism should have no place in Obama Administration or any nation for that matter. We just got out of it and we cannot let it sneak back in.


Obama has to put every appointee/ nominee through the test of inclusiveness, their interests should be America first and nothing but America. They cannot have bias or hatred for other humans as it may cause them to remain "silent" or "tacitly" approve or disapprove a situation that is "unjust" and unsustainable in the long haul. Of course, Obama will throw every one out who is blatantly biased towards other people; however he has to watch for the subtle ones. Let this be a government of people, you and I have the responsibility to ensure that it is.


We cannot ruin our nation after the freedom we have received on Nov 4th. As friends of Obama we need to be hard on him, tough on him in his early decisions. We cannot let him go far that we cannot straighten him.


Sonal Shah, one of his advisors is claimed to have fascist connections. The piece has appeared in Hindustan Times, one of the respectable Newspapers of India. We have to look at her individual record and not that of her family members. Individuals do wrong (or right) and not their families or faiths. I hope Sonal is clean, but it needs to be affirmed, one bad apple can ruin his administration.


We need to watch Rahm, what we read and hear about him is not good. Obama needs to put him through some tests if his heart and mind is open towards other people. We need to know if Rahm is prejudiced against Palestinians, if he is, he will be an obstacle to peace in the middle east ruining every chance for the the Israelis to have peace and security, and continued hopelessness for the Palestinians. We have had bad policies in the Middle East for the last sixty years, we cannot continue with them for another sixty, it is time to change now and yes we can.


Peace in Middle East is a reality if justice to both the parties is ensured. We need to be a catalyst for a realizable hope for Palestinians and genuine security for the Israelis, where both people can drop their guards and feel safe. Sixty years have gone by because of the policies of Palestinian, Israeli and American leadership. It has to change; the “Justness” element has to be included now.


I hope the people at FOX will do something good finally and wash away their sins. Let them be hard on Obama, to ensure beneficial decisions are made for our country. Meanwhile, we have to build a strong opposition to prevent Obama to become the Unilateral Bush with such a mandate. The purpose is to have a clean administration. Let him take the bloody time to put people who are inclusive and respectful of every human. We can't let short-sightedness creep in.


On the international front; what is good for America has got to be good for the World and vice versa to be sustainable. We cannot have advantages over the others, they are deleterious to lasting peace.
