Judson Phillips Has Nazi Tourette’s

I don’t know who it was that first observed that Glenn Beck has a bad case of Nazi Tourette’s syndrome, the tendency to blurt out “Nazi” as an accusation against those one disagrees with. Tea Party Nation leader Judson Phillips seems to have the same affliction. And even criticizing him for this trait is, to him, proof that someone is a Nazi — even if the person doing it is Jewish. In an email to supporters he writes:

Are liberals really like the Nazis of 1930’s and 1940’s era German? Are they really the kind of people who engage in that kind of behavior? Or this just some conservative hyperbole?

Do liberals really want to silence their critics? To liberals really believe in a one party state? Do liberals really want to deny those who disagree with them the ability and the opportunity to offer different opinions?

The answer is yes.

Like the book burning Nazis of the 1930’s, the left wants to suppress all dissenting opinion.

This is not true of all liberals, only the overwhelming majority. I appear occasionally on Thom Hartman’s show on RT. Thom is very far to the left but to his credit, he brings on people like me who do not agree with him and he lets us make our points.

The vast majority of liberals are represented by people like Aaron Keyak who is the interim director of the National Jewish Democratic Committee.

After I made my blog post yesterday comparing liberals to Nazis, he took to Twitter to demand that Republicans denounce me…

He actually proved my point. Liberals do not want to discuss or debate issues. They want to silence those who disagree with them.

So did the Nazis.

The left is in love with totalitarian regimes. Obama himself has wistfully admired the power dictators have to simply impose their will.

But the truism of all totalitarian regimes is that they cannot stand criticism.

If that last sentence doesn’t set off your irony meters, they are in need of repair.

    Depends. If you’re talking about normal irony meters, you’re probably right – they blow up all the time due to irony overload anyway. However, on my heavy-duty, Right-Wing-Proof Irony Meter™, it only registers as small wiggle of the needle.

    I like how he doesn’t provide evidence of having his liberty destroyed. Persecutions are easier to imagine if there’s no evidence for them.

    jnorris at 3: It’s not just that he doesn’t provide evidence that his liberty has been destroyed, it’s also that by having the ability to make the accusation to a large audience at all he provides the evidence that his liberty has not been destroyed.

    Liberals love ice cream! So did the Nazis. Liberals love foreign films. Guess what Nazis loved? German films, which are foreign.

    You know what else Nazis did? Compared everyone to fucking Nazis.

    Them Jew Nazis are the worst ones!

    But, absolutely, I remember during the Bush administration that criticism was accepted politely and seriously considered by Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, each of whom carefully weighed the input from those who disagreed with them in making future decisions.
    Bwaaaaha. I couldn’t even type that with a straight face.
    What I actually remember is that the mildest disagreement would have one labeled with the condition of “Bush Derangement Syndrome.”
    Which, in hindsight, is quite a mild condition compared to “Ni**er President Complex” that has taken hold of the teabaggers.

    democommie:

    Citations have a liberal bias.

    While I realize this is a variation on the “reality has a liberal bias” theme, I’m so stealing it. And not giving you credit.

    You know why? Because that’s what the Nazis did.

    So are they saying that America 2013 is the Weimar Republic? After Googling Weimar Republic I’d like to hear conservatives tell us how we are so similar.

    The bastard! Condeming you for condeming liberals? What could he have been thinking?!? It is only fair to show him what good ol’ Americans, unlike them Nazis, do in such situations! We debate by calling people Nazis and they just point out that we are calling people Nazis! What can you do with such people?

    I like this bit: “Obama himself has wistfully admired the power dictators have to simply impose their will.”

    See, when Romney expressed his desire to simply impose his will, he said it in a red-blooded American capitalist way: “I like being able to fire people.” Which is totally okay!

    Over the last couple of decades I’ve expended so much money on repairing, replacing and upgrading irony meters that I’ve finally decided it’s not worth the cost. I now live an irony-free life.

    These jokers need to understand the difference between opinions and facts. You are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts, so to them when they have the facts wrong and someone calls them on it and makes them look silly that it’s somehow silencing them. The way I see it the “liberals” are terrible at silencing them as there are more crazy conservatives out there committing acts of creative story telling than ever, they have no shame preferring to continue with some reality bending narrative even when reality smacks them up the side of the head.

    Case in point, Rubio’s response to the Presidents SOTU speech the other night, he erected quite the strawman that he then battered into submission.

    Actual quotes from George W. Bush:

    You don’t get everything you want. A dictatorship would be a lot easier. [while governor of Texas]

    I told all four that there are going to be some times where we don’t agree with each other, but that’s OK. If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator. [after winning the 2000 election]

    A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there’s no question about it.”[while serving as President]

    I don’t ever recall hearing that one of the Nazi techniques for silencing critics was to publicly point and laugh.

    “Judson Phillips Has Nazi Tourette’s”

    Immediately thought of the band Wilson Phillips, singing some romantic, Nazi love songs.

    Hitler was infamous for his establishment of somewhat cheaper and more applicable healthcare. He also, much to the dismay of civilized Westerners everywhere, worked hard to maintain unemployment benefits. And he was terrifying in his determination to compromise with his political enemies.

    Plus, he made the trains run on time.
