Ahh, the controversial Austrian statesman. Nothing like a reference to Adolf to prick up everyone’s ears. Kind of like adding a couple bottles of grain alcohol to the thin gruel of ordinary political discourse.
Years ago Tom Delay, a second-rate political fixer from Texas became the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. That is, third in line for the Presidency in case of the death or incapacitation of the President and the Vice-President. Now under indictment for violating campaign-finance laws, he’s begun violating Godwin’s law as well. You see, Delay had to give up his seat in Congress after being indicted for said violations of campaign-finance laws. Which means, as he wrote in a recent book, that the "liberals" who are "persecuting" him are really goose-stepping Nazi fanatics, as Tiny Revolution reports:
It’s the same thing as I say in my book, that the Nazis used. When you use the big lie in order to gain and maintain power, it is immoral and it is outrageous…
It’s the same process. It’s the same criminalization of politics. it’s the same oppression of people. It’s the same destroy people in order to gain power. It may be six million Jews. it may be indicting somebody on laws that don’t exist. But, it’s the same philosophy and it’s the same world view.
