Racine Tea Partiers Get Their Hitler On...Again

They just can't help themselves.

This morning, busy bee, Sandra Morgan of the 912 Patriots/Patriot Voices of SE Wisconsin posted a gem that was originally posted in October of 2009 and then debunked by Sandra Shaw a few days later.

Sandra Morgan must have been all excited about the Super Bowl or somethin' because she even  forgot she commented on it at the time. It's just that those Obama is Hitler analogies are just so hard to resist!

So the title of this morning's post is: "Things to consider!" and it claims to be written by professor and author, David Kaiser. Kaiser refudiated his authorship years ago. Even crazy, nut-job Alex Jones was forced to withdraw the post and claim victimization to a hoax. But Sandra won't let the facts get in the way of a good theory. The post is quite long and the Siren has given you a link to read the whole thing, but the gist is:
"As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the “savior” was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory. Conservative “losers” read it right now...Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured country in Europe . It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them."
Any guesses on who that German "savior" was? Right. Hitler.

The Siren will never understand how these groups think this kind of rhetoric helps their cause. It seems to only codify the nutty center of their very peculiar candy-bar theories.
