Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) is a lunatic

Hokay. Now I have the "full picture" on what this jack-off was referencing. Are you ready? Seriously, I think you ought to sit down. I'll wait....

Ready? Apparently, Obama made a speech on July 2 in Colorado Springs in which he spoke about the need to expand...AmeriCorps!

For those of you that don't know, "AmeriCorps is a U.S. federal government program partnering with non-profit organizations, public agencies, and faith-based organizations that was created in 1993 by President Bill Clinton." (H/T to Into the Woods and Gooners on Daily Kos)

Now get what Broun thinks this means:

"It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this national security force," Rep. Paul Broun said of Obama in an interview Monday with The Associated Press. "I'm just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may — may not, I hope not — but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism."

Not enough? He goes on:

"That's exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it's exactly what the Soviet Union did," Broun said. "When he's proposing to have a national security force that's answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he's showing me signs of being Marxist."

Do you see a powerful disconnect here? As in, how do we get from a service organization to Nazi brown shirts?

As always, don't take my word for it. And in case you think that this nut job from Georgia is alone, think again.
