President Obama is using a Cold War-era mind-control technique known as "Delphi" to coerce Americans into accepting his plan for a United Nations-run communist dictatorship in which suburbanites will be forcibly relocated to cities. That's according to a four-hour briefing delivered to Republican state senators at the Georgia state Capitol last month.
No, that's not a joke.
On October 11, the Majority Leader of the Georgia state senate convened a closed-door caucus meeting during which Republican legislators watched a powerpoint presentation and 90-minute video promoting a variety of loony right-wing conspiracy theories.
Lots of warnings about "mind control" and UN takeovers. Dick Morris claimed that Obama has a secret plan to forcibly relocate rural Americans into "the cities from whence our ancestors fled". One teaper at the meeting endorsed both Birtherism and 9-11 WTC conspiracy theories.
Here's the kind of material the Georgia Senate Republican Caucus thinks is relevant to its mission:
Yes, that is a slide from the presentation, comparing the freely elected and middle-of-the-road moderate US President Obama to the former Soviet dictator Stalin and Chinese communist Mao Zedong.
Seriously ... mind control? Stalinism? The UN taking over America?
What the fuck is wrong with Republicans in this country? How can one of two major parties in the world's largest superpower be so totally divorced from reality?
