Kirsten Powers: Obama, FOX News, and Hitler

Kirsten Powers is making waves.

She's a liberal, but rather than march in lockstep with her political allies, she has the guts to acknowledge the deplorable silencing going on in our country.

She's not afraid to call out the bullies, like Obama and his administration and Marquette University.

From The Daily Signal:

Kirsten Powers doesn’t mince words when discussing what she calls the “illiberal silencing tactics” of the left, including those employed by the Obama administration.

“It goes without saying that if George Bush had done this, he would have been Hitler,” she said of the Obama administration’s attempt to “delegitimize” Fox News.

...While speaking to a small group of reporters Monday at The Heritage Foundation, Powers explained how the tactic works, using the Obama administration’s attack on Fox News as an example:

“They go around to ABC and CNN and say, ‘We’re not going to listen to them, and neither should you.’ To me, it’s so unprecedented,” she said.

They can’t handle any dissent. It’s got to be completely 100 percent behind what they want—they don’t want to debate, they won’t send anybody on Fox News. … It goes without saying that if George Bush had done this, he would have been Hitler. If George Bush had come out and named a news organization … I can’t even imagine what would have happened.
Obama's war on FOX News really is bizarre.

It is unprecedented.

Obama and Fred Levenhagen are cut from the same cloth.

Listen to Levenhagen, a Wisconsin public school teacher, completely out of control.

In effect, every time Obama trashes FOX News, he is behaving exactly like the crazed Fred Levenhagen. The difference: OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

Bottom line: As president, Obama has never learned to handle dissent.
