New Rule: Nobody Else Is Hitler!

Bill Maher of course, provides the inspiration behind the title of today’s blog entry. The Tea-Baggers, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin and the rest of the out of control far-right conservatives should learn a lesson from the Germans about the absurdity of comparing people like President Obama to Adolf Hitler. Let’s hope this targeted audience is educated enough to read and comprehend the following excerpted portions from Germany’s Der Tagesspiegel newspaper titled, “Everyone Lately Is Just ‘Like Hitler'”:

“We Germans wince when we hear about people being compared to Hitler….But if Germans understand the enormity of the insult, others evidently do not. It’s ‘preposterous’ that President Obama can hardly get through a day without some Republican calling him Hitler, as if the mild-mannered democrat could have anything in common with history’s most evil dictator….Foreigners should get this clear: If your enemy started a world war and nearly exterminated entire ethnic groups, then fair enough; if not, he’s not ‘like Hitler'”

If only the extreme right-wing loonies could ponder that lesson, they would understand how ridiculous they appear when the rest of America and the world witness stuff like this:

Glenn Beck: “I am not comparing him (Obama) to this, but please read Mein Kampf for this reason. If you read it now you see that Hitler told you what he was gong to do…Please America, take this man (Obama) for what he says.”;

Rush Limbaugh: “Obama’s got a health care logo that’s right out of Adolf Hitler’s playbook…Adolf Hitler, like Barack Obama, also ruled by dictate.”;

Ann “The Man” Coulter: “With one association after another, that is beyond the pale with Barack Obama, I feel like we are talking to the Germans after Hitler comes to power, saying ‘Oh, well, I didn’t know. I had no idea he was gonna be like this.’ With this guy, Americans ought to know.”;

Michele Bachmann: Bachmann (R-Crazy Town) endorsed a conference sponsored by the Citizens Council on Health Care in which the featured speaker said, “Obama, like Hitler, is ‘a charismatic leader who promises full pocketbooks…He would pave the way for a future Antichrist. Obama scares me because he has no record and people flock to him. Hitler also had no record, people flocked to him and both wrote a book. Christians laid flat and Hitler came to power, just like with Obama.”;

Sarah Palin: The former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska encouraged her Twitter readers to read an article comparing the Obama administration forcing BP to establish an escrow fund to compensate victims of the Gulf oil spill to Nazism. Her tweet said, “This is about the rule of law vs. an unconstitutional power grab. Read Thomas Sowell’s article.” Of course Sowell’s article begins like this,

“When Adolf Hitler was building up the Nazi movement in the 1920s, leading up to his taking power in the 1930s, he deliberately sought to activate people who did not normally pay much attention to politics. In our times, American democracy is being dismantled piece by piece, before our very eyes by the current administration in Washington, and few people seem to be concerned about it.”

Michelle Malkin: A picture is worth a thousand words:

Assorted Tea-Baggers: Once again, a picture is worth a thousand words:

That noise is the morning school bell. All of those mentioned above please report to class immediately so that you can potentially learn something.


Lynnrockets needs your help. Boston’s largest talk radio station (WRKO AM) has chosen Lynnrockets as a finalist in its “Next Great Political Blogger Contest”. Yours truly has been selected  by the station’s staff (from over 200 entries) to be one of 10 finalists for a position with the station as a “liberal” blogger. There will be two winners (a “liberal” and a “conservative”) chosen by means of internet votes received. This is our chance to get even with the Palinbots for what they did for Bristol Palin on “Dancing With The Stars”. Like Bristol, I lack talent but with all of you voting for me, I may be able to pull-off an upset win. I offer my eternal gratitude if you loyal Rocketeers will visit the WRKO website (Here) and vote for wait…wait…here comes the spoiler…”Kevin McCarthy”. Looks like I’ve now been officially outed. Please vote early and often as the contest ends on Saturday, December 11th at 11:59pm EST. I would truly appreciate your help and if you really want to be of assistance, please encourage your family and friends to vote also, too!

(sung to the Frank Sinatra song “Strangers In The Night”)

Strange ones on the right,
Fox News romancers
Not so very bright,
With our finances
This Tea Party love
Should be viewed as taboo

Palin shouting lies
And fear inciting
Rand Paul is hostile
And so damn frightening
Boehner has no heart
McConnell has no clue

Strange ones on the right,
Abnormal people
They are strange ones on the right
Not one sane moment
They should be in a freak-show
Little do they know
It would just enhance our day
If like Bristol they’d dance away and –

On Fox every night,
They’re all together
Lovers on the right
In love forever
It’s an ugly sight
Those strange ones on the right

(witchcraft break)

Don’t look now just glance away
Here comes their jailbird Tom Delay

You can join their fight
And hang together
Only if you’re white
Birds of a feather
Taking their last flight
Those strange ones on the right
