It would of course be absurd to suggest that there are relevant and unsavory historical parallels for the plan to have the executive branch create a separate force of spies and secret police answerable only to the maximum leader. Thus, any claim that the plan described in Trump White House Weighing Plans for Private Spies to Counter “Deep State” Enemies bears even the slightest resemblance to a famous paramilitary body should be dismissed as hysteria.
To even suggest such a thing is as ridiculous as equating contemporary ‘opinion journalist’ Sean Hannity with a famous historical propagandist.
Yes, all utterly ridiculous. Just business as usual. Move along.
