Wingnuts Aim Nazi Tourette’s At Each Other

Is it progress if the wingnuts start calling each other Nazis instead of calling liberals that? Probably not, since it isn’t really “instead of” but rather in addition to. But the Tea Party Patriots are now calling Karl Rove a Nazi and even photoshopping him into an SS uniform.

A top tea party group is taking its clash with Karl Rove to a new level, sending out a fundraising email Tuesday featuring a photoshopped image of the GOP operative in an SS uniform.

“Wipe the Smirk Off Karl Rove’s Face,” reads the subject line of the email, from Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder and national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots.

The email features a photo illustration in which Rove’s face is grafted onto a photo of a uniformed officer in the Reichsführer-SS, an elite rank during Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. The lower left-hand corner of the photo features the inscriptions “Reichsführer-SS” and “K. Rove,” and appears to match a photo of SS Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler.

They later issued an apology. Because it’s wrong to call one another Nazis instead of Obama and everyone else to the left of Glenn Beck.

    Insult and apology is a time honoured smear tactic.

    “Your mother’s a whore!”

    “I would like to apologize for what I said about my opponents mother. Salty language is not in my nature, and I shouldn’t disparage her choice of profession. I standby my essential criticisms of his character, but should have been more delicate about my phrasing…”

    One of the most eye-popping statements I ever heard from someone who was currently in command of enormous political power was Karl Rove describing George W. Bush as, “center-right”. This was when Mr. Bush was president long enough to have abandoned nearly all of the centrist positions he campaigned on in 2000.

    We’ll get back at Rove for saying we are crazy-stupid by doing crazy-stupid things! That’ll teach him!

    Rove in a Nazi uniform is just wrong. I’ve always imagined him as more in the vein of il Duce.

    Holy crap. Talk about your Overton Window. This means that Karl Mother Fucking Rove represents the Establishment Republicans.

    It was predicted by many that once the “big tent” started to collapse, all the right wing nutjobs would immediately start turning on each other.

    prediction is being fulfilled, in spades, and there is much schadenfreude.
