Is Obama pro-fascist?

After watching his treatment of Iran and Honduras in the last month, to go along with his treatment of Israel since the moment he assumed office (literally), my gut reaction to the question of whether Obama is pro-fascist is "of course he is."

Roger Simon explains Obama's behavior and why the answer to that question is yes.
Obama has strange friends. He equivocates and equalizes in disturbing ways. Is he “objectively pro-fascist” as George Orwell memorably wrote in his famous essay “Pacifism and the War“?

I give you Eric Arthur Blair. Make of it what you will. For me, the word “pacifism” could be replaced by some coinage (it’s too late here in LA for me to come up with one, if I could anyway) that encapsulates Obamaism in its supposedly even-handed international policy: “Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side you automatically help that of the other.”
Read the whole thing.

Obama seems to be operating on the theory whatever Bush was for must be bad for America and vice versa. This is the only explanation that makes sense in the first six months of Obama's foreign policy. And it helps one to predict how his Administration will deal with the world in the future.
