Yes, this is just like what Hitler did in early July, 1934. The only difference is that Hitler murdered his opponents, but he never messed with their committee assignments.
That is exactly what I thought when I read the first article about Boehner zapping the conservatives off committees because they didn't vote like he wanted. I really did think, “Night of the Long Knives”.
If a conservative party comes from the ashes of the present liberal Republican Party, I will help this new party.
