Cheminade Draws Parallels Between Obama’s Polices and the Start of Nazism
March 12, 2012
The remarks made by French Presidential candidate Jacques Cheminade drawing parallels between Barack Obama’s policy and the beginnings of Nazism during a radio interview with France Inter on March 9, were quickly quoted by hundreds of media in France, (http://larouchepac.com/node/21936). To clear up any confusion on the subject, Cheminade released a statement the very same day, to clarify his position. What follows is the English translations from the original French.
“PARIS, March 9, 2012—It is being said everywhere that I compared Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler, during an interview with Pascale Clark this Friday morning on France Inter. I made it clear that I was speaking of the initial period of Nazism in the early 1930s, which was characterized by a series of acts that were unconstitutional and in violation of human rights.
“The principal villainous laws and initiatives of Obama justifying my comparison are the following:
“1. Violation of the constitutional clause according Congress the exclusive authority to declare war, as well as violation of the War Powers Act of 1973.
“2. Violation of the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution establishing that ‘no person shall be … deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.’ The assassination of citizens by drones and the National Defense Authorization Act attest to this violation.
“3. Obama’s health-care reform policy, which denies care to those with chronic illnesses and patients in the terminal phase of illness, is tantamount to the “inadequate provision of surgical and medical services…” which was Count Four of the Nuremberg indictment of major Nazi war criminals, at the time.
“4. Violation of the principle of the separation of powers, in order to impose austerity. The political direction that Obama agreed to on the part of his Wall Street advisors (in particular Larry Summers, Tim Geithner, and Peter Orzag) tramples on defense of the General Welfare and the lives of future generations.
“To say that the current four Republican Presidential candidates would be even worse is true, but it is no excuse. The international financial system is on the verge of exploding, a war is threatening throughout the Persian Gulf, and failures of Barack Obama are leading us to disaster.”
