There she goes again! Sarah Palin uses Twitter to link President Obama to Nazism.
Here are her two back to back tweets from late last night:
GOP: Don't let the lamestream media suck you into "they're defending BP over Gulf spill victims" bs…
…This is about the rule of law vs. an unconstitutional power grab. Read Thomas Sowell's article: http://u.nu/6e4ec
That link takes you to an article which says the following:
When Franklin D. Roosevelt arbitrarily took the United States off the gold standard, he cited a law passed during the First World War to prevent trading with the country's wartime enemies. But there was no war when FDR ended the gold standard's restrictions on the printing of money.
At about the same time, during the worldwide Great Depression, the German Reichstag passed a law "for the relief of the German people."
That law gave Hitler dictatorial powers that were used for things going far beyond the relief of the German people — indeed, powers that ultimately brought a rain of destruction down on the German people and on others.
If the agreement with BP was an isolated event, perhaps we might hope that it would not be a precedent. But there is nothing isolated about it.
The man appointed by President Obama to dispense BP's money as the administration sees fit, to whomever it sees fit, is only the latest in a long line of presidentially appointed "czars" controlling different parts of the economy, without even having to be confirmed by the Senate, as Cabinet members are.
Those who cannot see beyond the immediate events to the issues of arbitrary power — vs. the rule of law and the preservation of freedom — are the "useful idiots" of our time. But useful to whom?
Okay THAT is just a huge load of bullshit! Having BP put 20 billion away to pay for damages and loss of income caused by that gusher in the Gulf is not even remotely the same as the Nazi's using the Reichstag fire to usurp power, exterminate the German Communists, and declare themselves the ONLY viable political party in Germany. To be honest that sounds far more like Karl Rove, than Presidnet Obama. to me.
Projecting much Republicans?
It is important to remember that Sarah Palin is the person who first lit the fuse on the "Obama is a fascist" powder keg with her declarations that he "pals around with terrorists" and her fanning of racial hatred at her KKK-lite political rallies.
The whole "Obama is a Nazi" meme arose from the ashes of her campaign and has been carefully tended by her disappointed supporters and Facebook fans. Make no mistake the "Nazi" and "Fascism" labels evolved from the "Arab" and "Socialist" remarks screamed at sometimes deafening decibels during McCain-Palin rallies all across this country.
I think it is high time that somebody confront this woman on camera about the hate that she has disseminated al lacross America and the constant REAL LIFE danger that she places our President in with this kind of talk.
If she actually believes that the policies of this country are like Nazi Germany then somebody needs to MAKE HER SAY THAT ON CAMERA! It is high time that some reporter yanked her out from behind her Facebook posts and cowardly Tweets to say these things to a media outlet that is NOT an appendage of the Republican party!
And besides, just to be clear, WHO is it that has a dedicated following of robotic supporters? And WHO is the one who uses militaristic terms to energize their angry, hate filled acolytes? And WHICH person is a figurehead for a group of radical individuals who are constantly talking about nationalism and taking back their country by force if necessary?
In other words dear Sarah, if the Swastika fits.........
“I'm not calling her a Nazi,” he added, “but that's the same kind of tactic that the Nazi troopers used in Germany in the '30s. And I don't think there is any place for it in America.”
