Why would anyone fear or hate a census worker?

Lets have a look see
One of the most infamous Census conspiracy theories was spread by Rep. Michele Bachmann -- that the census would lay the groundwork for World War II-style internment camps.

Anti-tax activist Neal Boortz thinks the Census is being used to take away your property and give it to the "moochers."

Some fringe conservatives think President Obama's in-school census kits are a way of indoctrinating children. Just like Hitler.

The American Daily Review suggests that the Census GPS is a way to help United Nations personnel round people up after Obama lets foreign troops control the country.

Of course, the adoption of GPS by census-takers could be a way of targeting "undesirables" for missile-drone attacks.

Republicans saw Obama's decision to have the Census Director report to the White House as a power grab and a way to politicize the count.

  • Michelle Malkin suggests Obama aims to use the Census to undermine border control and give "the Left" a "permanent ruling majority" with the help of undocumented immigrants.

    Bachmann, along with other conservative Republicans was concerned that ACORN would be working the Census and ...who knows what

  • Not sure why anyone would hate or fear one. They're just hired to do a job. I've never filled out a census, but that's me. I'm sort of private like that, and don't see the need for a published book (in my town) of who lives where and how many kids and who lives with them, and who's registered, etc. I also don't license my dogs.
