Obama's Red Guard Civilian Security Force

Given the way things are going with people who happen to ask inconvenient questions of "the One" this whole Civilian Security Force thing is getting me a little nervous. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it came down to "Madam Obama" picking a "group" of four to set it all up.

Uh... you guys realize this has been done before, right? Via Wikipedia:

Red Guards (simplified Chinese: 红卫兵; traditional Chinese: 紅衛兵; pinyin: Hóng Wèi Bīng) were a mass movement of civilians, mostly students and other young people in the People's Republic of China, who were mobilized by Mao Zedong between 1966 and 1968, during the Cultural Revolution.
