EVERY REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IS HITLER
March 18, 2016


Daniel Greenfield

“Except for Adolf Hitler’s extermination of the Jewish people, the American bombardment of defenseless peasants in Indochina is the most barbaric act of modern times.”

That quote didn’t come from some Soviet hack coughing up copy for Moscow, but from Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern. (Some years later, McGovern would compare the Communist massacres in Cambodia to the Holocaust and call for some of that barbaric military intervention.)

Vice President Hubert Humphrey also brought out Hitler when running against Nixon, declaring, “If the British had not fought in 1940, Hitler would have been in London and if Democrats do not fight in 1968, Nixon will be in the White House.” Chicago Mayor Daley had accused Nixon of “Hitler type” tactics.

To most people, Nazi analogies summon up images of the Holocaust and a ruthless dictatorship. To the left however, any populist reaction against their rule is Nazism. In their world, there is a battle between progressive and reactionary forces. Any movement that dares to run for office by challenging progressive policies is reactionary, fascist and the second coming of the Third Reich. Republican victories are lazily attributed by liberal hacks to mindless public anger being exploited by right-wing demagogues.

And so the only thing we can truly be certain of is that any Republican nominee will be Hitler. It doesn’t matter what he believes. It doesn’t matter if Democrats considered him a moderate 5 minutes ago. Accusations of Nazism remain the default argument for a Democratic Party turned far to the left.

Optimists thought that the Democrats had reached “Peak Hitler” under Bush. But for the left there is no Peak Hitler. The same tired line of attack has been trotted out for fifty years. It will go on limping around the liberal corral for another fifty years or a hundred years.

Like the Race Card and similar red herring tactics, the Hitler Card and Fascist! Card will be staples of Lib/Prog politics until those tactics blow up in their faces … a lot.

I don’t remember anyone in the mainstream media jumping on Obama to repudiate and denounce the endorsement of his campaign in 2012 by the Communist Party USA or demand that the Chairman Mao ornament be removed from his Christmas tree and the responsible persons fired. I don’t remember the GOP leadership demanding any of this either.

Why would the Republican Party Leadership repudiate and denounce what you post above when it works hand in hand with the Democrat Party Leadership to plunder our national treasury and keep the heel of government on the necks of America’s hard working productive citizens?

JWK


Let us not forget this coming election the betrayal by House Republicans and Senate Republicans who voted in favor of Paul Ryan’s Bill to finance Obama’s invasion of our borders!

I recall huge swaths of Republicans and conservatives comparing Obama to Hitler. That was an equally stupid comparison. Going Godwin is just the default mode for a LOT of people.
