Big California Dem. Compares Paul Ryan to Nazi Joseph Goebbels ^ | Sept. 3, 2012 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 09/03/2012 10:15:46 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

California Democratic party chair John Burton compared Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan to Nazi Joseph Goebbels this morning in Charlotte, North Carolina. Here's video:

Via the San Francisco Chronicle:

Greetings from the California delegation breakfast at the DNC where before he had a cup of coffee Democratic Party Chair John Burton – much like his ol’ palGuv Jerry Brown once did – just compared the Republicans to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, for “telling the big lie,” a reference to several falsehoods GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan recently told.

Funny, I’ve been thinking Obama campaign surrogate Stefanie Cutter is like Goebbels. I’ve never heard a spin doctor spout as many outrageous lies as her (the Obama “recovery” is bigger than Reagan’s, etc.) If any Republican called her that, the left would explode with cries of misogyny and the “war on women”.

The Dems have lost it. When you don't want to talk about the economy or the malaise sweeping across Barry's "fundamentally transformed" America, I guess this is all you have left.

I don't know why but Ryan has a lot of 'RATS pissing their pants and wetting their beds. They're scared to death of him.

And Axelrod looks like a taller, heavier version of Hitler!

You know, if Hitler had thought it would have advanced his Fascist/Socialist/Leftist/Democrat agenda he would have called Churchill, Stalin and FDR Hitlers.

Well, then, that must explain the quote on another thread today reporting on Obama's comment today to the effect that free markets are just legalized theft.

Now, why is it that America's Founders believed the opposite?

Oh, the dishonesty of it all!!

In their overwhelming desire for accumulation of power of government over people, Democrats, under Obama, now acknowledge the taxing power as useful for restraining motivation toward what they deem to be undesirable behavior.

On the other hand, they deny the certain fact that "taking," or taxing productive citizens also discourages and restrains motivation.

They now have endangered the liberty of millions yet unborn with their illogical arguments on behalf of "taking" and "redistributing" the earnings of hard-working Americans. They claim they are "taking care" of those who elected them. Their "taking care" amounts to enslaving every citizen, born and unborn, for generations to come.

Their claims would fall on deaf ears, if most citizens understood their Constitution's limits on the powers of government. Here what some of the Founders said about the policies of today's "progressive" Democrats.

"To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers." --Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816. ME 15:39

"I deem [this one of] the essential principles of our government and consequently [one] which ought to shape its administration:... The honest payment of our debts and sacred preservation of the public faith." --Thomas Jefferson: 1st Inaugural, 1801. ME 3:322

"I sincerely believe... that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale." --Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor, 1816. ME 15:23

"[With the decline of society] begins, indeed, the bellum omnium in omnia [war of all against all], which some philosophers observing to be so general in this world, have mistaken it for the natural, instead of the abusive state of man. And the fore horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression." --Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816. ME 15:40

"Is it now high time for the people of this country to explicitly declare whether they will be free men or slaves. It is an important question which ought to be decided. It concerns more than anything in this life. The salvation of our souls is interested in this event. For wherever tyranny is established, immorality of every kind comes in like a torrent, it is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice.” - Samuel Adams


“The utopian schemes of leveling and a community of goods, are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the crown. These ideas are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government unconstitutional.” - Samuel Adams

Anyone living here knows about this nut.

Just a couple of headlines easily found on google by search for California John Burton language -- he is known by his potty-mouth language amoung other putrid things.

"California chefs condemn John Burton’s use of violent rhetoric, ask for apology"

"Sexual harassment suit filed against John Burton"

Axelrod and his family need to be thoroughly vetted, not only for their communist party affiliations in Chicago but for their family history that reportedly goes back to Lenin and Trotsky and the bolshevik revolution. It might also reveal the actual/true Axelrod family name and the person who told a US business man in 1980-90s at a dinner party in Moscow that Obama was being groomed for becoming POTUSA.

I can tell that you have been doing some good, heavy reading!

This goes to the very heart of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

Life - that which protects the ability to physically secure yourself and your family and maintains your social connection to society.

Liberty - that which protects the ability to maintain fiscal security for yourself and your family and maintains your economic connection to society.

Pursuit of Happiness - that which protects your ability to live a virtuous life where the goal is happiness with God.

The genius of our Founders is that everything that touched our three basic rights like business, religion, education, etc., were all placed into the free market. As long as basic laws were agreed to, every organization was free to pursue its activity. It was such a tremendous thing that Alexis de Tocqueville, in 1835, remarkably noted that Americans were happily free unlike anyone else in the world.

Barack Obama, on the other hand, has done everything to pervert these three basic rights to which ALL the Founders agreed to and understood in depth. The effort to force the Catholic Church to ignore it's own teaching in order to go along with Obama healthcare mandates is the master planned effort to undermine our three basic rights with one fatal blow.

Most people know there is something really wrong going on. Obama has done everything precisely to completely tear this country apart.

However, let me interject one note of real hope. Evil cannot stand for long after it is uncovered. Obama and even his genius friends cannot cover all the details required to do a total con job. Right now we are lifting rocks and giving sunshine to all the dirty creatures slithering to find shelter.

Thank you for your post.

All who love liberty must speak up for it now on behalf of future generations, as did America's Founders, who realized the role of the Creator, of Nature's God, of Divine Providence and the Supreme Judge of the World in their statement of grievances against the coercive power of King George.

Let us not forget that Declaration, for it incorporates the very philosophy of liberty which underlies our Constitution's protections.

Excerpts from Abraham Lincoln's letter to Henry L. Pierce & others, dated April 6, 1859, comes to mind.

". . . soberly, it is now no child's play to save the principles of Jefferson from total overthrow in this nation.

"One would start with great confidence that he could convince any sane child that the simpler propositions of Euclid are true; but, nevertheless, he would fail, utterly, with one who should deny the definitions and axioms. The principles of Jefferson are the definitions and axioms of free society.

"And yet they are denied and evaded, with no small show of success."

According to Lincoln, those who "denied and evaded" were, in effect, " supplanting the principles of free government, and restoring those of classification, caste, and legitimacy. They would delight a convocation of crowned heads, plotting against the people. They are the van-guard--the miners, and sappers--of returning despotism."

He continued, " We must repulse them, or they will subjugate us. . . ."

"All honor to Jefferson--to the man who, in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and so to embalm it there, that to-day, and in all coming days, it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of re-appearing tyranny and oppression."

Your obedient Servant
A. Lincoln--

Ah, you are quoting my heroes!

On my mantle I have a clock which was made during the Depression. It has George Washington and Abraham Lincoln flanking FDR while he holds the wheel of a ship. Inside the wheel is the face of the clock. I took the clock to a sculptor and asked if she could do some plastic surgery on the head of FDR and turn him into Reagan. She worked with some putty designed to harden when it dried. I now have my three favorite presidents on my mantle. It cracks people up when they see it.

This leads me to ask the question I have heard people ask, "Where is Ronald Reagan when we need him?"

Well, we need to be Ronald Reagan right now. We can't expect one person in office to do all the work of saving this country. Actually, to have millions of Ronald Reagans speaking the truth, wouldn't that be a sight? Barry and his pals will not know what hit them.

You say we need "millions" of Reagans now.

Well, Mr. Reagan's Young America's Foundation may have educated enough youth over these last few years to bring about that multiplier effect you speak of and make his voice--and that of the Founders he loved to quote--heard through the "din" of tyrannical political voices that bombard us (isn't that the "one" you hear on TV every day now?) with the failed ideas of Marx instead of the ideas which made America the place of opportunity it became and remained for over 200 years!

Additionally, the technological advances have enabled all of us to have at our fingertips the words of truth and light which inspired Reagan--the writings of ancient wisdom books, the writings, speeches and documents of America's founding period--which we can publish and forward to millions of other Americans over the next several weeks.

As Reagan knew, truth inspires. Truth penetrates even the darkest places and brings that natural, Creator-endowed longing for liberty which can throw off the selfish, arrogant attempts of mere mortals to enslave us in the name of "helping" us.

Edmund Burke observed in 1775 (Speech on Conciliation) that it was the "spirit of liberty" in the hearts of Britain's American colonists which had brought about the tremendous prosperity and plenty which already was surpassing that of the rest of the world--and they were doing it without any government to plan, control, and "help" them.

That spirit inspired a Reagan, and it can inspire millions of youth in America today, if we can give them just a glimpse of the down-to-earth common sense of the idea that if your rights come to you from God, that is what makes them unalienable; but, if they are grants from government, then the same power which "gave" can "take" away also. We have one "hope" for the nation, and that can be found in a rediscovery of the ideas essential to liberty, as stated in our Declaration of Independence and protected by the limitations on government power structured by the 1787 Constitution.

James Madison declared that America's economic progress was due to the individual efforts of the people and the "benign" influence of government. Many of our economic woes today result from government's "malignant" growth and intrusion into our lives.

So, let the enlightenment of millions begin. The Internet is replete with sources for the Founders' ideas. Share them, everyone!

I believe you are right, sly. I hear more and more people muttering about how unhappy they are with Obama and his policies. During his first run, a lot of these same people were totally enamoured with him.

Evil cannot stand for long after it is uncovered. Obama and even his genius friends cannot cover all the details required to do a total con job. Right now we are lifting rocks and giving sunshine to all the dirty creatures slithering to find shelter.

What a great description! I can totally picture the nasty little bugs scurrying to avoid the sun!

Loveliberty ------> You say we need "millions" of Reagans now. Well, Mr. Reagan's Young America's Foundation may have educated enough youth over these last few years to bring about that multiplier effect you speak of

Even in CA, YAF and YRs are joining forces to help educate the 18-35 year olds in how Reagan saw the US. They have been working very hard to try to give CA a future as well.

BTW, I have a nice chair out in my front yard....empty, of course! I wonder if my neighbors will know why?
