Heil Tea Party

Posted By on Sat, Jul 17, 2010 at 11:25 AM

A Washington Post columnist, Dana Milbank, skewers the latest Tea Party-Palin-wingnut meme: That the Obama administration is the second coming of the Third Reich.

Hah. Somebody is rousing the rabble with hate speech, nativism and crackpot economics. Wonder who?

I just completed Richard Evans' masterful trilogy on the Third Reich. He concludes:


"The Third Reich raises in the most acute form the possibilities and consequences of the human hatred and destructiveness that exist, even if only in a small way, in all of us. It demonstrates with terrible clarity the ultimate potential consequences of racism, militarism, and authoritarianism. It shows what can happen if some people are treated as less human than others. "

What he said.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
