Former Clinton advisor Dick Morris: Poster child for the unhinged right

Aye, aye, aye…

Former Clinton advisor-turned-tea party freak, Dick Morris has a new book out called Here Come the Black Helicopters: UN Global Governance and the Loss of Freedom. In it, he postulates, among other things, that if President Obama is reelected to a second term, he will allow the United Nations to tax Americans so that they can redistribute the money to less fortunate countries.

You think I’m kidding but I’m not. He put it out there in an “opinion” piece (i.e., book advertisement) at Fox News, reposted from his own website.

In our new book, “Here Come the Black Helicopters: UN Global Governance and the Loss of Freedom,” Eileen and I describe how there is now pending in the U.N. all kinds of plans to tax Americans and redistribute their wealth – not to other Americans – but to other countries. These taxes will not be like our U.N. dues paid by a vote of our Congress. Nor akin to foreign aid which we choose to give. They would be mandatory levies imposed by treaty on American citizens. And, since they would be enumerated in a Treaty – not an act of Congress — only the president and the Democratic Senate need be on board. The Republican House has no role in the Treaty-making process.

I don’t know if people who might actually vote for Barack Obama will be swayed by this type of insanity. I want to believe they won’t and that this is just gratuitous red meat being thrown to people who are already afraid of and threatened by Barack Obama. I pray that I am right about that. Certainly anyone who watches Morris speak is likely to shrink back in horror and discount anything he says.

Here are a few other nuggets he’s mined out of the festering boil that is his “mind”:

  • A global tobacco tax with the funds to flow to the World Health Organization (WHO).
  • A UN-imposed tax on billionaires all over the world. And don’t delude yourself for a moment that it is only the 1600 current billionaires who will be hit. Once the precedent of a UN tax on US citizens is approved, it will gradually grow downwards to cover more and more Americans. Again the funds will go to the UN.
  • A mandatory assessment to be imposed on the U.S. to compensate third world nations for the costs of reducing their carbon output.
  • These taxes are, of course, only the first steps. Once the principle is established of UN taxation of American citizens, the sky is the limit.

This guy should be banned from every television channel except Fox News. He’s in the same class of fools that thinks President Obama got the Bureau of Labor Statistics to put out fake positive numbers to help him get reelected or that thinks any attempt to call out Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan on their blatant and egregious lying is part of the “Liberal Media”.

They are, in a word, unhinged. And Dick Morris is their poster child. Along with Michele Bachmann and Allen West and Michelle Malkin and Rush Limbaugh and Shawn Hannity and Herman Cain and Ted Nugent and Dennis Miller and Charlie Daniels and …

    Wow. Lots of hand waving and arm flapping over something that doesn’t exist. Since he says that it’s at the mercy of a Democratic Senate, the treaty doesn’t actually exist yet. He really thinks we’d sign off on what’s in his festering sore just because? That we wouldn’t even ask, “Is this in our interest?”

    The only way a treaty that stupid would pass is if Dick Morris were President.
