Graphic Novelist Max Brooks: Tea Party Guided By Ideology Just as Nazis
Breitbart TV ^ | June 27, 2014

Posted on 06/29/2014 10:19:46 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

On Friday night’s episode of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” in a discussion about the Tea Party’s pushback against last Tuesday’s Mississippi Republican primary runoff between State Sen. Chris McDaniel and incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), Max Brooks, author of the bestsellers The Zombie Survival Guide, World War Z, made a comparison between the Tea Party and the early origins of the Nazis movement in post-World War I Germany.

According to Brooks, who is the son of filmmaker Mel Brooks and actress Anne Bancroft, there are similarities to be drawn between the modern American Tea Party movement and the Nazi movement because he says they both cling to ideology.

“You know this has happened before in history,” Brooks explained. “In Germany in the 20s and 30s, there was this right-wing reactionary element that was so terrified of anarchy and communism that they said, ‘You know what? There’s a group of street thugs that are real ideologues and they’re willing to take it and they’re willing to bloody themselves, and, you know, once they get into power, we can control them.’ And that was why they backed it – we can control this.”(continued)

So the National Socialist German Worker's Party (Nazis) were for smaller government, lower taxes and individual freedom? Who knew?

LOL, I said exactly the same thing to some guy who was claiming R’s were all slathering to turn the government into Nazis. I said, “So you’re saying that if the National Socialist German Workers’ Party were here today, they’d be Republicans??” He wasn’t entirely convinced, but he couldn’t refute it either.

... the early origins of the Nazis movement in post-World War I Germany.

Obviously this retard has the TEA Party confused with his 'RAT party. Homosexuality was the early origins of the Nazi movement in Germany. Sorry Maxie old boy.

“Tea Party Guided By Ideology Just as Nazis”

It would be much easier to argue that today’s Democrats are guided by Marxist/Leninist ideology.

But Nazi ideology is ultimately the same as communist ideology, while both are the opposite of Tea Party ideology.

This is truly disgusting.

What a vile unconscionable (not to mention intellectually bankrupt) thing to say. The National SOCIALIST movement was a left wing movement started in part by radical HOMOS and the original welfare leeches (hated the rich/jews). What kind of intellectual rigor can one expect from a man who wrote ‘the zombie survival guide’ though?

Perhaps we conservatives give these pieces of detritus too much credit. Maybe now we should meet them with only the derisive laughter they so obviously deserve. If this washed up bottomfeeder is all that Bill troglodyte Maher can get on his little cable backwater, then its good news.
Max Brooks leeches of his father’s name to pawn his crap to the masses in one of the more pathetic displays of celebrity dynastic parasitism entwined with Shamwow dimestore junk-merchanting.

So, he likes to write about the ‘apocalypse’, the breakdown of society. And what exactly would happen to Max if such a thing occurred? Well, my guess is he would last all of about a day before the mobs of inner city New Yorkers broke into his house and slit his throat for a bottle of Fiji and a Milky Way. Sorry, just telling the truth as it is. That’s right, Max. No DeBlagio to redirect the class envy. No gay mafia to accuse the mob of homophobia. Just you, in a massive gun free zone, like meat on a hook for the desperate parasites you and your ilk defend valiantly.

And another thing. The guy looks like a cross between a Thai ladyboy and a petulant Panamanian dictator.

Yep, Hitler was as anti capitalism as he was anti Soviet style communism.
The political spectrum that placed nazi philosophy (fascism)
opposite communism along with capitalism was a creation of the
Western liberal imagination. The liberal jackasses carry on that myth
to this day.

If you actually think about it, it a simply asinine statement on it’s face and even the bigot Maher should have caught it it immediately. Please tell me any group or movement that is not guided by ideology. And if he is really concerned about a political party with an ideology shared with street thugs he’s picked the wrong side to smear since the dems with their ties to the KKK more accurately fit the description.

So liberals like him want to throw out the Constitution when it stands in the way of what they want.

Irony: Our Constitution was designed to protect us from people like the Nazis and people who think like Brooks.

They are the Nazis. If they could get away with it, they’d kill every one of us or at least load us in boxcars for the camps. We, on the other hand, are content to leave them playing with their toys in the corner. We do not wish them dead.

One of the lessons that I’ve learned in life is that when someone in a “discussion” calls their opposition racist, Nazi or fascist and you look at them then your usually looking at the racist, Nazi or fascist in the discussion. And they are throwing those words around in an attempt to end the talk because they are afraid that they will be revealed for what they are.

Classic leftist doublethink: “Those evil conservative Nazi Tea Party bastards want a government that controls every aspect of our lives. They’re anarchists who don’t believe in any government at all and need to be stopped.”

I have heard both claims from prominent leftist politicians in the last two years.

Tea Party Guided By Ideology

America's grassroots Tea Party Movement is guided by one thing and one thing only; America's Constitution.

We are learning that the people who oppose the Tea Party Movement also oppose candidates whose oath to America’s Constitution guides their political behavior.

Godwin's "law" is one of the more idiotic memes that the Internet has disseminated. There is nothing wrong with calling out Nazi like behavior as long as it is actually Nazi-like. (unlike this particular case).

Anytime some Neo-Com(mmie) calls a Nazi "right wing" or accuses some "rightwinger" of being a Nazi, I ask them "How do you figure that the "National Socialist German Workers Party is Right Wing"? You can literally see the cognitive dissonance in their eyes. It's much better than saying "Godwin's law ha ha".

Each side accuses the other of Nazi-like behavior. There are parallels here and there, but typically it’s a lazy method of arguing. If you walk the dog with someone on where their ideas/desires will lead, that’s typically all you need. “Nazi!” doesn’t really seem to help.

Some behavior is Nazi like and it’s not a lazy method if it’s true, in fact because they were one of the most evil governments in modern memory it’s a very effective argument.
