Bachmann Compares the Holocaust to Tax Increases?

30 Apr

In a political speech to a group of Republican Tea Partiers GOTP, made in Manchester, N.H., Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann told her audience

Bachmann said how she remembered – as a child – learning about the Holocaust and wondering if her mother had done anything to stop it. She said she was shocked to hear that many Americans weren’t aware that millions of Jews had died until after World War II ended, and then she actually had the gall to claim the GOTP’s boogey man of today’s so-called loss of “economic liberty” young Americans are supposedly facing is another “flash point of history” in which the younger generation may ask similar questions about what their elders did to prevent them from facing a huge tax burden.

“I tell you this story because I think in our day and time, there is no analogy to that horrific action,” she said, referring to the Holocaust. “But only to say, we are seeing eclipsed in front of our eyes a similar death and a similar taking away. It is this disenfranchisement that I think we have to answer to.”

So, wait a minute Congresswoman, you’re claiming you’re not making an analogy to that horrific action – the holocaust – but in the next breath you’re also claiming that we’re “seeing eclipsed in front of our eyes a similar death”? Which death are you referring to Congresswoman, when you say it’s “similar”?

You’re crazy and you’re a liar. You are talking to a group of far right-wing Tea Partiers and you’re making comparisons of the holocaust to taxes?

The Crazy One continued by claiming the current generation of Americans “just entering the work force now” could eventually see “75 percent of their earnings sucked up by income taxes, Social Security and Medicare”. She also said those young workers could one day ask “what people were doing while watching quite literally our economic liberty pulled out from under us?”

“The question comes down to this: what will you say to that next generation about what you did to make sure that wouldn’t be their fate?” she said.

Well, I for one will tell my children and grandchildren I did all I could to make sure people like you never saw the inside of the Oval Office because you’re not only a liar, you’re an insane, crazy liar who should only be looking at the inside of a rubber room, while wearing a nice tight straight jacket.

You really believe it’s OK to compare one of the most horrendous events in history to anything going on in America today? You’re also no doubt comparing President Obama, in a strictly non-analogous way to Adolph Hitler? You’re crazy show plays really well with your equally crazy followers, but thank God the majority, meaning more than 75% of the rest of us don’t live with all of you in the Twilight Zone. All of this aside, PLEASE RUN IN 2012. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE RUN!
