    This means, not a whole lot seeing as the more national level of the Tea Party movement have rejected such tactics.

The evidence speaks for itself. All you have to do is come to DP and see how many Tea Party supporters we can count Godwinizing every Obama thread.



    Hi hautey, Thanks for being consistent, I remember when all the Bush=nazi crap that was spewed here at DP, you were all over them as well... (oh wait..... )

On the other hand a few years ago you had a few rallies every few weeks with some teenagers burning Bush efigees every now and then, getting arrested and going home after being released. Tea Parties have Palin, Beck, Limbaugh, Gringrich, Paul - all head honchos in their domains - backing them. I never saw Mike Wallace at an anti-Bush rally. I can't find quotes of Keith Olberman comparing Bush to Hitler or Hillary Clinton saying we're heading towards Nazism.

    for every 1 picture you can find of a tea party folk using the hitler nonsense. I can find 20 on the left that did it.

    There's an example of a Tea Party leader quoted in the first post that is admonishing such action

    Once you've compared someone to Hitler, you've basically admitted you've lost the debate.

    On a lighter note, I think this cartoon kind of sums of the idiocy of the comparison:

    Yeah, and it was just as effective then too. See how everyone took them seriously?

    It's a stupid argument no matter who uses it.

    i realize that.....it wasn't my point though. i expect that mr. v will respect the same actions form the "other side" in the future. like when the black panthers distances themselves from the actions of that idiot who talked about killing white babies.

    I agree this is stupid as well. Perhaps Hatuey has equally strong archive posts when these same pictures and comparisons were perpetrated and shown during the Bush years.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
