If you use the word “Chicago,” you’re a racist. If you criticize the president about anything, you’re a racist. For the longest time, “racist” was a debate stopper. Unfortunately for the Democrats, calling everybody a racist doesn’t work anymore.
With this in mind, Democrats have upped the ante by identifying Republicans with Nazis. This attribution goes back a long way, but it’s been ramped up lately as Democrats are getting desperate as they see their electoral advantage nearly disappear.
So it’s not too surprising the some Democrats are pulling the Nazi card. The latest Nazi hunter is South Carolina Democratic chairman Dick Harpootlian. He compared his own governor, Republican Nikki Haley, to Hitler's mistress, Eva Braun at a breakfast in Charlotte, North Carolina. South Carolina’s newspaper The State reported deep down in the story the following with no disapproval:
“S.C. Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian, never a loss for a quick quip, tossed a few stinging one-liners at the Wednesday delegation breakfast.
“On Gov. Nikki Haley participating in daily news briefings in a basement studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame: ‘She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun.’”
Braun, if you don’t know, was Adolf Hitler mistress. She and the Fuehrer committed suicide in a bunker as World War II was ending.
When asked about the Eva Braun remark, because he’s a Democrat, he dismissed the obvious Nazi reference by feigning ignorance:
“I wasn't saying she is Eva Braun or is like Eva Braun. I was saying she is hiding out. ... She is reclusive. She is not transparent,” he said. “I wasn't comparing her to Eva Braun other than she was in a bunker. I don't even know much about Eva Braun, just that she hung out in a bunker.”
But, hey, Harpootlian is a Democrat speaking to Democrats, and it’s a good chance he’s right since most Democrat voters probably didn’t catch the Eva Braun reference.
Pat Lehman of the Kansas Democratic delegation was a bit more specific in how she described the Republicans:
“It’s like Hitler said, if you’re going to tell a lie, tell a big lie, and if you tell it often enough and say it in a loud enough voice, some people are going to believe you,”
Not to be outdone, California Democratic John Burton, chairman of the California Democratic Party, compared Republican convention remarks to the tactics of Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
“They lie and they don't care if people think they lie ... Joseph Goebbels — the big lie, you keep repeating it,” Burton said. “That was Goebbels, the big lie.”
Are these guys serious? Are we to believe that everything a Democrat says is the truth? We’re not that stupid, but too many Democrat voters are.
Here’s the real big lie: the Nazi Party was a political movement of the Right. The Nazis were Socialists, thus the name, Nazi: "National Socialists"! They were all about government intervention and social spending.
Hitler remarks in Mein Kampf that he studied German Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck’s “socialist legislation in its intention, struggle and success.” Hitler was not alone in his admiration of Bismarck and what he was able to accomplish through the power of government.
FDR borrowed Bismarck’s socialist agenda like Hitler did and created what is now known as the Social Security System. Bismarck said that “the State must take the matter in hand, since the State can most easily supply the requisite funds. It must provide them not as alms but in fulfillment of the workers’ right to look to the State where their own good will can achieve nothing more.”
Sound familiar? Change the names and dates, and you have today’s Democrat Party.
