After six years of comparing George W. Bush to Hitler, it looks like the Left has decided to compare Republican politicians to other notorious world leaders. I can only only imagine that if Newt Gingrich gets the nomination, he might be compared to Genghis Khan. Here’s Cenk Uygur comparing Rick Santorum to Benito Mussolini.
While the comparison in the video is definitely “old tone”, it does give preview to something we should expect, if Santorum gets the nomination. The Left Wing and the mainstream media, both, will find every opportunity to paint the former Senator as Christian zealot, whether it’s fair or not. President Obama’s defenders would much rather talk about Rick Santorum’s religious beliefs than they would the economy, and you don’t have to be a “lunatic” to believe that.
Only in the bizarre alternate universe of liberals is asking people to produce identification in order to vote labeled “voter suppression”. Watch and marvel as some guy from Rolling Stone Magazine admits that the main Democrat constituency consists of people who are too stupid to figure out how to obtain government identification for themselves. It boggles the mind how liberals find it acceptable to produce i.d. to cash a check, open a bank account, purchase alcohol and tobacco, enter a night club, drive a car and buy cold medicine can think asking someone to prove they are who they say they are in order to vote is suppression. Brilliant.
Current TV is Al Gore’s new “channel” and the home to PMSNBC reject Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Sam Seder, some guy with glasses, offers his intelligent and well-informed view of the tea party movement as he slams New Mexico governor Susana Martinez. First, Seder accuses the tea party of wanting “moats encircling our borders”. No, sir, the President said that. I bet you think Sarah Palin really said “I can see Alaska from my house” too. Seder then gets his glasses all fogged up as he seethes about Martinez admitting her grandparents were illegal immigrants. He asserts this makes her a hypocrite and a desperate shill for tea party votes because Martinez wants to require identification for obtaining driver’s licenses, which is obviously racist. Proving you are who you say you are before you operate a vehicle? Inconceivable! A representative for Martinez says she only recently found out about her grandparents, who arrived in the U.S. in the 1920’s, when immigration laws were much different. Not that Glasses McGee cares. He was so excited to present this as proof the tea party is racist he didn’t bother considering any other aspects of the matter. Witness Mr. Myglassesmakemelooksmart calmly display his warped, twisted vitriol toward average Americans as he talks about the warped, twisted vitriol of little old ladies and stay at home moms with homemade signs…I mean the tea party. Oh, and one more thing…there is no such thing as an undocumented immigrant. There are immigrants and illegal immigrants. The lack of documents makes you ILLEGAL, and thus, a criminal. Americans love immigrants, for obvious reasons. Criminals? Not so much.
