The Soviet States of America (Lew Rockwell)

Lew Rockwell blogs on the Neocon campaign to smear Obama:

As the neocons ramp up their hate machine against Obama, the real nature of the US regime becomes even clearer. No free country would have an anti-free speech PC industry like ours. This morning on MSNBC's Morning Joe, the ex-congressman Scarborough was interrogating an Obama aide about her boss's views on various topics of importance to the regime, in ugly commie fashion. It was all very Red Guardist. Did Obama agree with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright on this point or that. Here is the basic charge: Obama knows a man with politically incorrect views. Therefore, destroy him. My view: So what? All that matters are his own views, and he should not give in to the neocons and sacrifice his minister to the state PC code.

Yes, though the Rev. Dr. Wright is correct on much, he is wrong on some things. Again, so what? No, the US government didn't invent AIDS to kill black people. But the US government does maintain a vast etablishment at Ft. Detrick, Maryland, dedicated to making every manner of plague and other biological weapon to sicken and kill its enemies. To mention, let alone criticize, that hellish establishment is also "anti-American."

I don't know whether the least warlike major candidate will be smeared to death by the neocons. But I do know this with all my heart: everyone who enables, let alone participates, in the anti-free speech, anti-free press, anti-free thought PC movement is an enemy of mankind.
