"Those are the kind of tactics we're seeing on the left today in support of these Democratic presidential candidates."

    The first ad shows a series of pictures of Hitler speaking in German. Text on the screen reads as follows: "We have taken new measures to protect our homeland ... I believe I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator ... God told me to strike at al-Qaida and I struck them ... and then He instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did."

    "Sound familiar?" asks the text, to the sound of cheering Germans.

    Saying he believed the White House was guided by a "supremacist ideology," Soros complained: "America, under Bush, is a danger to the world ... When I hear Bush say, 'You're either with us or against us,' it reminds me of the Germans ... My experiences under Nazi and Soviet rule have sensitized me."
    Absolutely like Move On adds. Is there a point to your comments other than that other people can do vile things too as some sort of excuse?

    Dont get all pissy. Im not excusing it nor defending it. I dont CARE about it. Im not invested in it. So chill already. Was the ad in bad taste? Yes. partially incorrect? You bet. Maybe the bigger discussion should be if these types of ads should be allowed at all. Wouldnt it be interesting if a fourth rate ad company in LA was responsible for bringing down the Soros machine.

    I can't believe there are real black people in this view. Did they just pick up the first two black crackheads they found off the street? This is on par with those George Bush commercials showing the "real American family" as rural WASPs.

    Well at the end of the video it says what needs to be said with the McCain-Feingold comment. And so yes they should be allowed.

    That would be a huge stretch not based on anything at all I posted.

    That has got to be the stupidest add I've seen this year. I can't even imagine what kind of mind would actually respond to such demented crap. Who in the hell is their target audience supposed to be??

    Honestly, Redress it's not that big of a stretch at all and it would account for your annoyance at VancMack for pointing out MoveOn is no better.

    I think that is just about the funniest, stupidest thing I have ever seen. This is the level of our political discourse now? Holy crap.
