Republicans Are Nazis: Totally Orignal Accusation

From Larry King Live September 2nd:

KING: And in New York is the very funny D.L. Hughley, the actor and standup comic, one of the original kings of comedy.

And in New York is the very funny D.L. Hughley, the actor and standup comic, one of the original kings of comedy. He is a Democrat but has not endorsed a presidential candidate.

Why not, D.L.?

D.L. HUGHLEY, ACTOR, NOT ENDORSING CANDIDATE: Well, no, that isn't true. I'm going to vote for Barack. I think that...


HUGHLEY: I'm going to vote for Barack. But to me, I'm just a -- I'm a very cynical guy. I think all politicians lie. And it's a choice between the dude who's half black and a dude who's half alive.

So -- to me, I have always been very cynical of politician. I think that I've heard pretty much the same things coming out of everybody's camp. And I think that Obama, at least, appears to be, at least, interested in doing things differently.

And later on, Hughley offered up this gem from out of nowhere:

HUGHLEY: ...I promise you, the first thing I thought when I saw those "Country First" signs, it reminded me of Nazis. It really -- I mean they just seemed so, you know -- that seemed to be a country that I don't recognize.

It seemed to be -- it didn't look that way. It looks very exclusionary. It looked very specific. I didn't see anything that looked -- you know everybody looked like they were -- had the same experience, had the same kind of process.

It seemed like that -- I felt more like I was looking -- I mean, peering into something that wasn't necessarily invited to. So I didn't -- I can't see anybody would watch them and think that those people would be, you know, open to anybody with a different experience.

So having a "different experience" is equal to Nazi Germany?

The Gospel of Obama

No doubt we have heard in the past some of the silly comments that people have uttered when trying to describe that intangible aura that emanates from His Excellency, B. Hussein Obama. Chris Matthew's talked about a tingle that goes up his leg when The Chosen One speaks. Others have talked about feeling giddy, light headed, and unable to think clearly. Even Obama himself has trouble thinking clearly when he hears himself speak. The endless gaffes are proof of that. And who can blame anyone really? I mean, when was the last time that America ever did anything as inspiring Hope? We have been a county in the dumps for so long, so long the stray dog of the Earth, kicked around by super powers like Canada and Iran. No more! Our Time Has Come! We Are the Chosen Ones! Change We Can Believe In!

For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country. Why? Because Sheik Obama is the Democratic nominee for President. Never mind that he hasn't been elected to the Presidency. And never mind that he just barley gained 50% of the 18 billion votes in the 4,567 primary elections that took place. None of that matters, because nobody can stop destiny, when destiny starts to roll. (Although Destiny's Child has not had the same luck)

But never mind my thoughts. I am a simple minded voice in the masses. Mindlessly chanting "Obama, Obama" while holding out an empty hand, waiting anxiously for him to fill it with a good job, health care, and keys to a hybrid. Yes, never mind me, let's hear what the real movers and shakers of our country have to say about the New Messiah, the New Hope, the New Face of The New American Dawn.

Noble men like Jesse Jackson Jr. Men who have spent a lifetime preaching that impeccable doctrine of dependency, that idea that we are hopelessly without hope, if not for the benevolent hand of the government. A man who really understands the plight of us, the common workers of the United Socialists of America.

Jesse Jackson Jr, sounding so much like his totally insane and wonderful father, uttered when Barack Allah Obama claimed his victory that he:

"...cried all night. I'm going to be crying for the next four years," he said. "What Barack Obama has accomplished is the single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nation's political history. . . The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance."

How right he is! Crack open the Bible! It is time for the Gospel of Barack!

Just make sure it gets inserted before the Revelation of John, because certainly the end of the world is inevitably going to follow a B. Hussien Obama presidency.

Cult of Personality

I knew that I had seen this before, and then it came to me that this image appropriates the graphic style of totalitarian Soviet propaganda. It recalls the idealzed portraits and personality cult of the "Beloved Leader" such as Stalin and Lenin. The leader, face illuminated by a "holy" light, looks off to the horizon and sees the truth that is not available to his mere mortal followers, who must look up to his image.

Sniper Fire

I had some fun with it to enlarge

Post Racial?

The consequence, which you can already feel, is an inchoate resentment among many white voters who are damned if they will be called bigots by a man who associates with Jeremiah Wright. So here we go with all that again. And this is the fresh, clean, new post-racial politics?

Now, by way of which vent or orifice is this venom creeping back into our national bloodstream? Where is hatred and tribalism and ignorance most commonly incubated, and from which platform is it most commonly yelled? If you answered "the churches" and "the pulpits," you got both answers right. The Ku Klux Klan (originally a Protestant identity movement, as many people prefer to forget) and the Nation of Islam (a black sectarian mutation of Quranic teaching) may be weak these days, but bigotry of all sorts is freely available, and openly inculcated into children, by any otherwise unemployable dirtbag who can perform the easy feat of putting Reverend in front of his name.

Ignorance is Bliss

“We need change, that’s what I believe in,” a young woman named Melissa tells me.

“What about all the stuff with his pastor?” I ask.

“The what?”

“You know — the news about the controversial things his pastor said.”

“I haven’t heard much about it,” Melissa says. “That’s not a good question for me.”

“I don’t know much about it,” says a young man named Nick. “I’ve just been hearing about it from people who aren’t supporters, so I don’t have any idea.”

Others seem to have stronger opinions. “I don’t think everybody who goes to one church has the exact same views as everyone else who goes to that church,” a young man named Paul tells me. “He doesn’t have any control over what his former pastor said.”

By the way, I ask, what was your reaction when you saw those video clips of Rev. Wright’s sermons?

“I didn’t see what he said,” Paul answers. “What did he say?”
