I had just started to compile information for another 'leftist uses phony "Nazi" meme against someone they disagree with' post when I saw a story from the Hill titled "Rep. Grayson: Palin trying to make 'fascism fashionable,' 'gets away with it'" It reads:
Outspoken Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) criticized Sarah Palin, Chief Justice John Roberts and the Tea Party on Bill Maher's HBO show.Yeah, don't let facts get in the way of your politically unhinged freak-show, Alan. When Bill Maher won't even let you get away with your leftist lies, you know you're in trouble.
Grayson compared tea partiers to a character in the movie "Nemo" who can't remember anything that happened more than a year ago. He said former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is trying to make "fascism fashionable." And he mocked Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy for being out of touch with technology.
The Florida lawmaker, who is one of the GOP's top targets this fall, disputed characterizations by Matthew Continetti of right-leaning Weekly Standard that the media has been unfair to Palin.
"I think she's gotten a pass from the media," Grayson said, adding, "She's trying to make fascism fashionable and she gets away with it."
Grayson claimed that Palin "dropped out of college four times," but both Continetti and Maher pointed out that the former vice presidential candidate changed colleges four times.
There are several themes developing here. First, Alan Grayson uses political vitriol in the same way a spoiled, mentally challenged child uses screaming to get attention. This is the guy who stood on the floor of the "People's House" and stated that "Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick." When asked to apologize, Grayson used the opportunity to make another unhinged comment in regards to the health care debate saying "I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven't voted sooner to end this holocaust in America." Classy representative you've got there, Florida.
Grayson also has a habit of invoking Governor Palin's name into his loopy, heated rhetoric. In March of this year the Democrat issued a very unstatesmen like press release, saying a host of outlandish and bigoted things, such as:
"Palin, the former half-term Governor, current-nothing and future-even-less, charmed the all-Republican audience with her folksy folksiness and her homespun homespunnery. Atypically, Palin was wearing clothes that she had paid for herself. At the end of the event, she shared her recipe for mooseface pie."
Is there any wonder why Washington is a mess? The statement continued:
"Grayson said that the Alaskan chillbilly was welcome to return to Central Florida anytime, as long as she brings lots of money with her, and spends it. "I look forward to an honest debate with Governor Palin on the issues, in the unlikely event that she ever learns anything about them"
"Scientists are studying Sarah Palin's travel between Alaska and Florida carefully. They hope to learn more about the flight patterns of that elusive migratory species, the wild Alaskan dingbat."At what point do we as a nation, demand that our elected officials are drug tested in the same manner our mailmen are? He was clearly playing to the left's base and that should tell you everything you need to know about the left's base. Juvenile and despicable, not to mention derogatory to Alaska's residents.
Stating that Governor Palin was trying to make "fascism fashionable," is just one example I have seen recently where a leftist throws the 'Nazi' terminology at a Conservative or a Christian, as a weapon. Last Friday a sports radio host in Boston said this to his audience about the new Quarterback for the Denver Broncos and known pro-life advocate, Tim Tebow's NFL draft party:
"It looked like some kind of Nazi rally. . . . So lily-white is what I'm trying to say. Yeah, Stepford Wives."But that's not racist or anything. Nothing to see here folks, move along...
Tim Tebow has been on the receiving end of hatred for a long time. He grew up a missionary, he had a successful college football career, has always been a well spoken, good looking, talented athlete, with an unwavering devotion to his faith. Let's face it... The left thinks it's perfectly acceptable to HATE certain people. Tim Tebow, Sarah Palin, and anyone at who attends a Tea Party protest fit into that category.
I got into a long debate with a leftist on Saturday about their usage of the words "Nazi" or "Fascism" against their political opponents. He had used me as a ploy to rant to other leftists that the Tea Party was evidence that 'fascism' was on the horizon. Not from the Obama administration but from Conservatives. I stayed very civil and tried to explain to this individual the history of fascism and it's true definition. I laid out a ton of examples as to why American Conservatives are the polar opposite of the Nazi's. I spent a long time trying to explain why it is irresponsible and morally wrong for them to keep using those references.
After reading my historically accurate argument, the lefty proceeded to try to change the meaning of what he had said. He attempted to scoot around his diatribe saying that he only meant that the Tea Party resembles an uprising like the Nazi's did in 1919. I won't go into his left-wing nuance any further because it will honestly give a you headache. I will however say that by not taking responsibility for their rhetoric, the left are cowards of the lowest order. They have no trouble launching verbal 'hand grenades' then running from their comments when it is pointed out that they are factually dishonest.
These tactics from the left are increasing and I think that before the November election they will have anyone who disagrees with their agenda or ideology pegged as mass-murdering 'Soldiers for Satan.' Expect the worst of the worst to spew from the likes of Alan Grayson, the left-wing blogosphere, and certain members of the press. This is all designed to taint the minds of Independents and scare away Conservative opposition. It won't work because it's fairly obvious to most thinking people what is going on here. This is modern American left-wing, gutter politics and it shines a great big light onto their character.
