For more than four years, Joseph Farah has been telling the lie that President Obama's reference to a "civilian national security force" in a 2008 speech was a call to create a police-state apparatus. In fact, Obama was referring to an expansion of the foreign service.
Farah just loves telling that lie, it seems.
In his Oct. 31 WorldNetDaily column, Farah tries to fearmonger about the newly established White House Homeland Security Partnership Council. He asserts that "Essentially, Obama wants to deputize 'community organizers' like him to determine who represents a real threat to the republic." In fact, the council is pretty boring and doesn't do any of the things Farah suggests.
But Farah is in full pre-election Obama derangement here. He began his column by declaring:
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: If Barack Obama is re-elected Nov. 6 for a second term, he will declare a full-scale war on his domestic opposition.
There may not be another free and fair election in America.
I would expect due process to go the way of the horse and buggy.
I think he will move to shut down and destroy all independent media.
In fact, I think his biggest critics will be rounded up in the name of national security.
He then ties the White House Homeland Security Partnership Council into his "civilian national security force" lie:
Maybe this is what Obama once called for when he suggested, as first reported in this column more than four years ago, by the way, the creation of “a civilian national security force that’s just as well-funded” as the U.S. military.
While campaigning for his first term July 2, 2008, in Colorado Springs, Obama said this: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
These words have haunted me ever since.
Obama has never explained what he meant.
He’s never been called to account for that remark.
Doesn’t this sound like police-state talk to you?
No, it doesn't. And if Farah wasn't so dedicated to lying about Obama, he would know that.
And Farah wonders why nobody believes WND.
