It is important to identify who these despicable saboteurs As the United States drifts closer and closer towards fascism we must recognize that it is no accident. Democracy has been assaulted on many fronts by many individuals and organizations. If there is to be any hope of halting the drift toward fascism, it is essential that we identify the Enemies of Democracy of freedom are and what they do and how they operate to do their dirty work and damage. Some will be obvious-- like Ken Blackwell and Katherine Harris, two election corrupters who did all they could to erase the possibilities for honest elections in Ohio and Florida. Their machinations helped George W. Bush to steal two elections. The corruption of elections is tantamount to murder of democracy. This pair deserves the same criminal punishment that first degree murderers receive in Texas, and nothing less.
The mainstream media upper level corporate officers who have totally corrupted the news and injected right wing talking points and spin, while ignoring corruption, are among the enemies of democracy who should be removed from their positions of power. Fox news is one of the worst corporate offenders. Judicial Watch is a right wing think tank and advocacy organization that has harangued and harrassed the left and democracy. The National Rifle Association has long used its huge resources to push the right wing extremist agenda.
The list is long. The goal of this article is to start building a list of the worst offenders-- individuals, corporations and organizations. It's a job that requires teamwork. I'm hoping that by writing this article, it will kick off a big reader and writer response, with names of people and organizations cited.
Who do YOU think is an enemy of democracy? Which companies do you feel are using their resources to corrupt and weaken democracy and the freedoms granted to citizens by the constitution? Which organizations are systematically and strategically doing all they can to wipe out the protections and regulations put in place to prevent abuses of the constitution and of our rights?
It's important, when identifying these despicable vermin, to clearly describe and document why you are calling them Enemies of Democracy. People all over the world can learn from this project. They can see the way these people subvert, corrupt and erode the strongest democratic principles.
As the project unfolds, and we get more and more names suggested, we'll be adding a poll to allow readers to vote on the worst of the worst.
Here's a list of some more traitorous enemies of Democracy.
History has shown that it is essential to aggressively prosecute those people in high power who violate the laws of the land, the laws of humanity and democracy, or their escape from justice allows them to perpetrate more damage and allows them to support further abuses. For example, George Bush sr. was an accomplice in the criminal activities associated with the Iran Contra scandal, as was Ronald Reagan. Had Bill Clinton aggressively prosecuted Bush and Reagan, it is unlikely his son would have been able to win election to the presidency and Reagan would not be celebrated as a Republican hero. Remember, a year after Nixon won re-election, he was on the way to impeachment.
