Welcome to the Battle of Fredericksburg Fun Ride
There is a real growing fascist movement in this country, that chooses not to call itself fascist because it understands that word is not accepted anymore, even by people who happily would identify themselves with all the ideals and tenants of fascism as long as it is called something else. These are the people Obama likes best even if he isn't an outright fascist himself (and his stance on assassination of Americans, the Patriot Act, his attacks on whistle blowers and permanent war are certainly in line with a fascist world view).
So perhaps I should hope that he is only as incompetent as an Army of the Potomac commander.
UPDATE: Well if this story is accurate then perhaps the correct historical analogy is the nineteen century czarist secret police.
