Neo-Feudalism Has Officially Arrived – Congressman Suggests Building A Moat Around White House

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

What has been occurring over the past several years is not a recovery, rather, it’s a painful transition of the U.S. into a neo-feudal society. Earlier this week in the post, Welcome to the Recovery – U.S. Child Homelessness Hits Record as Poverty in Mass. is Highest Since 1960, I wrote:

While the general population is aware something is seriously wrong, people remain extremely confused about the root of the problem. This is because what’s happening all around us isn’t socialism and it isn’t free market capitalism. It is actually a return to something much more ancient and much more oppressive. It is a return to serfdom, neo-feudalism and oligarchy.

Well now we have definitive proof. It can’t get any more in your face than this.

From MarketWatch:

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)—Faced with an increasing number of White House intrusions that led to the resignation of a Secret Service director, a congressman on Wednesday suggested that maybe a moat should be erected around the president’s home.

 

The suggestion was made by Rep. Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Democrat, at a House Judiciary Committee hearing.

 

With hand gestures, Cohen suggested a moat roughly six-feet wide may be “attractive” and “effective.”

 

Joseph Clancy, the acting director of the Secret Service, didn’t dismiss the suggestion out of hand.

 

“Sir, it may be,” he said. Clancy said the Secret Service and the National Park Service were discussing ways to ensure security along with access to the White House for the American people.

In case you aren’t familiar with Steve Cohen, I covered his fascist tendencies in the past. Recall the post: Rep. Steve Cohen Calls Tea Party Republicans “Domestic Enemies” on MSNBC.

Here’s the moat clip:

We wonder where he got that idea from?

Moat? RT
