Is Kumar from White Castle the new Joseph Goebbels?

We noted in April that actor Kal Penn, better known as Kumar, was taking a job in the White House propaganda machine. He's officially "associate director of the White House Office of Public Liaison."

Look at the recent "liaising" schemes coming out of the White House:

1) Comrades are urged to report their neighbors who spread "disinformation" about ObamaCare.

2) Union members and Craigslist paid "volunteers" are bused in to create the illusion of popular support for ObamaCare.

3) The White House sends lesson plans to schools nationwide encouraging obedience to the President:
"Why is it important that we listen to the President and other elected officials, like the mayor, senators, members of congress, or the governor? Why is what they say important?"

"[Students will w]rite letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals."
4) Plan to collect personal information on millions of Americans who use social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, including capturing "comments by both Obama critics and supporters, with no restriction as to how the White House would use the information" with "extremely broad secrecy terms preventing the vendor from disclosing to the public or the media what information is being captured and archived"

... and you have to wonder, "Is Kumar the new Joseph Goebbels?"

UPDATE: 5) Having the National Endowment for the Arts direct artists to make pro-Obama propaganda.
