New Tone Watch: Nikki Haley is just like Hitler’s mistress!

Again I ask, what is in the water South Carolina Democrats are drinking?

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.”

Yes, because the democratically elected Indian-American Republican governor of a US state is so very comparable to the mistress of a genocidal dictator and who joined him in suicide in that bunker.

Yeesh.

The Nazi comparisons are flying fast from the Democrats at their convention. California Democrat Party chairman John Burton compared Paul Ryan to Goebbels, while a Kansas delegate compared him to Hitler, himself.

It’s nothing new for high-ranking Democrats to liken their opposition to an exterminationist German fascist party, though; Nancy Pelosi, while Speaker of the House, claimed Americans protesting as part of the Tea Party movement were brandishing swastikas at town hall meetings.

Must be that “elevated political discourse” they keep talking about.

UPDATE: PJM’s Bryan Preston says Harpootlian should do the decent thing and resign.

    Absinthe?

    The Nazis were socialists. The Dungocrats are Socialists. They need to be real carefull about comparing anyone on the Republican side to Nazis.

    @Gravelagitator: Wasted breath, sir, and simple projection on their own part. They could never understand how, with such good intentions, their actions to “improve” everyone else’ lives by rule of law invading every aspect of life could ever be seen as vicious despotism.

    And their basic problem with how they view the political spectrum? They see it as a typical western civilization straight line, when in fact it should be viewed as circular. That way the extremist National Democratic Socialists (and Islamic societies, as far as that goes) are sitting where they should be, right next to the socialists (i.e. – right next to the Democrats) and diametrically opposed to Republicans and freedom-lovers.

    Actually quite normal for our idiot Harpootlian; he follows party line no matter what. As an aside, I often wondered how he made it thru schools with a name like that…but perhaps that explains why he is what he is…

  5. The commiecrats’ grasp of history is revisionism at its most despicable. Like a Russian historian, their chief duty seems to be predicting the past.

    …Except that the Nazis weren’t socialists, no matter what Jonah Goldberg says.

    Yes, yes, I know where “Nazi” comes from. Do you know what happened to all the Nazis who took the socialist part of the platform seriously? Ever hear of the Night of the Long Knives? That’s when Himmler, Goering, and Heydrich slaughtered them all.

    Another big, fat hint the Nazis weren’t socialists: they never nationalized any private companies. Another: the state allied with the capitalists to suppress the workers, not the other way around.

    The previous blog comment was a public service message. You’re welcome. :)

    P.S. Don’t you know that proggies can say anything they like about their opponents, and the media ignores it? It’s because they’re on the side of Truth & Righteousness, while the Evil Reichwingnut Rethuglicans are white racist devils. And everyone knows you can insult racist devils because they’re, well devils. And racist. So it’s -like- okay.

    I agree it’s both slander, and absurd slander at that, but you’re wasting your time with public indignity. Best thing to do is add it to the list, so the next time a proggie says something about how nasty conservatives get, whip out a list of (ohhh) the last 50 quotes of their best friends.
