Sooner or later somebody compares something to the Nazis. This time it’s North Carolina Republican State Senator Bob Rucho who’s comparing the damage done by ObamaCare to the damage done by WWII.
We take second place to no one when it comes to heaping scorn on ObamaCare and its architects. We also try hard to avoid making comparisons that take people’s eyes off the real issues or give low information fools ammunition to distract others. That’s what Nazi comparisons do.
While we’d prefer Sen. Rucho had used just about any other comparison, we certainly don’t believe he owes anybody, especially the architects of ObamaCare or its supporters, an apology.
The media and the low information fools – especially the university professor – who are calling for Rucho’s head are simply a bunch of outrageous hypocrites. Case in point…
Senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer on Thursday compared Republican lawmakers to suicide bombers as the showdown over a possible government shutdown intensified.
And then there’s…
John Podesta, who last week was named as a senior adviser to President Barack Obama, apologized Wednesday morning after being quoted as comparing House Republicans to cult followers of Jim Jones.
We could offer up a few thousand more of these from the Obama administration, but you get the idea.
If you’ve got time to kill jump on Google and see if you can find the media, or some academics, or any Democrats, howling for apologies or heads. If you don’t have time, we’ll just tell you, no howling.
So listen up you bunch of disgusting hypocrites, when you start playing by the rules you want us to adhere to we’ll think about it.
Until then, stuff it. Go play your little Joseph Goebbels game of “I’m gonna shout this from the roof tops until it becomes true!” game someplace else. And, did we mention, stuff it.
