POLITICS: That Hitler Mustache

Yes, of course, the TV networks and lefty blogs have been trying to discredit conservative opponents of Obamacare with...signs and rhetoric from Lyndon LaRouche supporters who think Obama's plan isn't far enough to the left:

H/T Caleb Howe - go to Caleb's post if you can't get the video to load here. I don't even know at this point whether to attribute this to deliberate dishonesty or just plain stupidity, but it hardly matters.

(Of course, you could cure anemia with the irony of left-wing blogs discovering, on January 20, 2009, that it's not nice to compare the president to Hitler - or even Democratic politicians saying so after years of things like this and this and this and this. Worse yet is the Democratic tendency to accuse conservatives of "carrying Nazi symbols" when they mean "calling Democrats Nazis," as if to say that the protestors on the Right are in favor of National Socialism).

Par for the course.

So true.
Also, who knew criticism of the President wasn't treason.
Other than the mainstream (i.e corporate) media, of course. (I realize they knew the difference, and they were just playing stupid for the rubes. That damn "liberal media" is there anything they won't do to keep the rich in power?).

Of course the ultimate in nonsense is that the Town hall protesters had no problem with the Constitution being trashed, the government spying on citizens without a warrant, the torture of enemies, etc. What really has them up in arms is that some people (i.e minorities and the poor) may get healthcare.

Ha, so much for false equivalence.
