Obama the Pitchfork Operator: Remake of the Soviet Classic

Oleg Atbashian at Pajamas Media - if only the Obamaoists would learn from the USSR's experience that what they're trying to do doesn't, can can't ever, work. Sigh. [picks]

While some of today's comparisons between Obama and communist dictators may go over the top, the general direction of such thinking is not without merit: since they share a utopian goal of forced equality, it's logical to expect that their methods may also converge at some point. To wit, recent actions from Obama reminded me of a ploy Stalin used on Western entrepreneurs, which in itself is an illustrative morality play contrasting the differences between socialism and capitalism.

"My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks," Barack Obama told the CEOs of the world's most powerful financial institutions on March 27, when they cited competition for talent in an international market as justification for paying higher salaries to their employees.
