The modern public union movement is nothing if it is not colorful with its language. Similar accusations were made against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker when he made a move to reform the public-union dominated system in his state. The thousands of union protesters and young people made a game and celebration out of the protest rather than dealing with the issue at hand.
Enter in Chris Shelton, the vice President of the CWA-- the Communications Workers of America. Shelton was making a speech in the state in which he did not spare the invective. Instead, he made a bellicose speech to a ringer crowd.
Of course, not only did what he said not make sense, but it was downright offensive.
Welcome to Nazi Germany! Chris Shelton, vice president of Communication Workers of America District 1, told the crowd. We have Adolf Christie and his two generals [Democratic state legislative leaders] trying to make New Jersey Nazi Germany. Are we going to let them?
The crowd groaned its disapproval.

Libs all have bad cases of projectionitis.
It’s a mental disorder.
Sheesh... even when calling people Nazis, these dumba**ed union clods can’t even get ‘em right. Christie as Hitler?? Goehring, maybe (by similarity of girth only)... but Hitler? Nah.
No, it’s called Stalinist tactics.
Hitler is being rehabilitated by these idiots’ comparisons, if anyone cares.
I just finished reading a book about pre-war Germany, told from the perspective of the US ambassador of the time and his daughter (from diaries and official papers). It seems quite clear that Hitler was a paranoid schizophrenic that was actually manipulated by some of his sadistic, megalomanic assistants.
It all reminded me of what is going on in this country with Obama. I don’t mean that Obama is a paranoid schizophrenic, but he is being manipulated by other crazies.
Calling a Republican a Nazi? How original.
Erik Larson’s book? I’ve just started it. I’m about 60 pages in, and hooked.
And this union THUG is Al Capone.
He’d probably take that as a compliment.
Well has anyone seen Christie and Hitler in the same place?
I’m an avid reader, and tend to like actual physical books better than the e-readers, so I actually have the physical book. I have always been interested in Hitler’s Germany, and his rise and fall and when I saw this book I just had to have it. I’m also very interested in anything Russia, and currently reading Tim Tzouliadis’ The Forgotten: An American Tragedy in Stalin’s Russia. It still boggles me that our Government knew what was going on in both countries and turned a blind eye to it until forced to do something.
The Garden of Beasts touches on the Soviet Union situation as well. I won’t spoil it for you. I think that it would be a great idea to follow up the Garden of Beasts with something about the Soviet Union during the same period.
I found the Garden of Beasts particularly interesting because my brother-in-law’s (who is worse than John Edwards) father was in the state dept at that time, in Cuba. I have always suspected that he was there when they turned that ship full o Jewish refugees away.
