The New Gestapo, Phil Burress, and Fascism

I have been called paranoid. I have used hyperbole in describing the radical Christian Right. I do not think I can add much to this New York Times article about Phil Burress that should not bring Fascism and a New Gestapo to your mind:
Beyond that, Mr. Burress plans to take his grass-roots movement in Ohio to a new level, using a computer database of 1.5 million voters to build a network of Christian conservative officials, candidates and political advocates.

He envisions holding town-hall-style meetings early next year in Ohio's 88 counties to identify issues, recruit organizers and train volunteers. With a cadre of 15 to 20 leaders in each county, he says he believes religious conservatives can be running school boards, town councils and county prosecutors' offices across the state within a few years.

'I'm building an army,' Mr. Burress said. 'We can't just let people go back to the pews and go to sleep.'
Burress and his minions are theocratic fascists out to rule the public. They plan on pushing their religion on everyone using the government. Everyone should start waking to the fact that the radical right are a danger and their power is not small, and has a big chance to grow. The vote totals in Ohio should indicate that. The GOP should not feel safe. They have made a pact with these theocrats, and give them lip service and credibility. If they don't stand up and renounce the Faustian bargain they made, they are then in cahoots with the Burress mob. If they don't so as the Christian Right demand they will be instantly denounced and lump in with the rest of us Heathens.

I hope I am crying wolf. I hope the NY Times is just blowing smoke up Phil's ass (he might like that). I hope Phil is really just a nobody getting a little undeserved attention. I can hope, but I lost hope when Phil the bigot got his anti-homosexual amendment passed.

  1. Yes Brian you are paranoid..... Just like Hitler was paranoid about the Jews and Catholics.

    It is the left (liberal Democrat)in this country that looks a lot like the modern neo-nazi or new-facist party. Hitler and his group has to create a boogy man too. The problem is this ain't 1920's Germany or Italy.

    Oh yea...You might want to tuck your superiority complex in.... its showing!

    I really hope you on the left keep alienating as many voters as possible with your drivel. It just makes our job easier of keeping you on the left out of power.

  7. It's funny that when you try to point out the truth about the problems of the religious right(not to be confused with the normal right)that people throw barbs saying how you have problems.
    What's even more pathetic is that the person who went anon flooded your comment box with this drivel. This is something I would expect from a brain dead zebra, not someone who supposedly is more intelligent than us evil heathens.
    Anyway, with that being said, Burgess is insane and should be placed on anti psychotics...stat.

  8. As a supporter of the President, I try to make my decisions based on fact, encouraging what seems to me to be good for the nation, and the community within. Support of the troops overseas, and working toward stabilizing and growing economic factors, and promoting that entrepreneurial spirit, seems to be a focus for me lately. Having said that, this closed minded individual (Phil Burress) surely needs to be shut down by the community. I'm hoping that the thousands of voters that may read this, will in fact be spurred to further communicate to their friends and congregations that another individual is rampant in the community, trying to tell people what to think, what to wear, what's good for them, and more importantly, violating their rights to freedom of choice around their interests and concerns. Cincinnati recently seemed to lose it's latest battle of on-the-air radio stations, with the clear channel supporters (and others) taking away choice from the airwaves...let's keep these same people out of our bookstores, and our other interests.

  9. You all need to get a life if people want to see titties and the girls want to show them that is their buisness. If it is so important to Mr. Burress to stop these activities maybe he should focus his efforts more on taking care of our single mothers. With proper education, health care and opportunities these women would not turn to this profession. the root is much deeper than want they are willing to see. If you want to stop these businesses take care of your women and the men who abuse them.
