(SteveWatson) – Georgia congressman Paul Broun hit out this week at his favourite target, President Obama, stating that he has no concept of the US Constitution.
In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Broun, a frequent critic of Obama noted “I think my role is to uphold support and defend our Constitution.”
“The Constitution I uphold and defend is the one I carry in my pocket all the time, the U.S. Constitution,” Broun added.
“I don’t know what Constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it’s not this one. I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one. He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer.” the Congressman also said.
Congressman Broun has been a thorn in the side of Obama’s agenda since day one.
In 2009 he warned attendees of a town hall event that the Obama administration wasplanning to use a pandemic or a natural disaster to implement martial law in the United States.
Speaking at the North Georgia Technical College auditorium, Broun said that the “socialistic elite,” as well as Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, were planning to exploit a crisis to create a favorable climate for their stalling political agenda.
“They’re trying to develop an environment where they can take over,” he said. “We’ve seen that historically.”
He also spoke out against Obama’s plan to create a “national civilian security force,” warning that the program sounded like a 21st century Gestapo and that it was part of a move towards a Marxist dictatorship.
“That’s exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did,” Broun said. “When he’s proposing to have a national security force that’s answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he’s showing me signs of being Marxist.”
Broun also cited the threat to the second amendment posed by the Obama administration and anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder.
“We can’t be lulled into complacency,” Broun said. “You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I’m not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I’m saying is there is the potential of going down that road.”
As a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, Broun has also been heavilycritical of the TSA. In recent weeks he has sought to “pick up right where Congressman [Ron] Paul left off” by reintroducing “Audit the Fed” legislation for the current session of Congress.
