    Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson said Monday he "absolutely" stands by his preferred running mate's comment comparing Donald Trump's immigration plan to Nazi Germany. "Absolutely, absolutely. In New Mexico here, is my door going to be knocked down because I'm going to get checked for papers?" Johnson, who served as New Mexico's governor for two terms, when asked by CNN's Jake Tapper on "The Lead." Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld -- who is expected to be picked alongside Johnson to run on the Libertarian Party ticket at a nominating convention this weekend -- told The New York Times on Thursday...

    A meeting between far-right party Alternative for Germany (AfD) and Muslim leaders ended bitterly on Monday after just an hour of talks. It was meant to be a chance for the heads of Germany’s rising far-right party to meet face-to-face with leaders of the Muslim community for clear-the-air talks. […] AfD leader Frauke Petry “wants to go further along the path of populism, defamation and above all prejudice,” Aiman Mazyek, president of the Central Council of Muslims, said after the meeting in Berlin. For her part, Petry claimed Mazyek and his colleagues were calling for her to override the democratic...

    Ex-London Mayor Boris Johnson has compared the European Union’s aims to those of Adolf Hitler, arguing that the 28-nation bloc is creating a superstate that mirrors the attempt of the Nazi leader to dominate the European continent. Johnson, the most prominent political figure arguing that Britain should leave the EU, says the past 2,000 years of European history have been dominated by doomed attempts to unify the continent and recreate the Romans’ golden age. “Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically. The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods,” he was quoted by...

    Whatever you think of Donald Trump, is it fair to play the full Nazi card against him? David Brooks--the fellow who was so impressed by the crease in Obama's pants--apparently thinks so. On today's Meet the Press, commenting on images of Trump supporters at a rally responding to his request to raise their right hands to pledge to vote for him, Brooks said "if we're going to get Trump, we might as well get the Nuremberg rallies to go with it." Have a look at the photos below and compare the Trump rally to a real Nuremberg rally. Really, Chuck...

    The puzzling trend that has some evangelicals jumping on the Donald Trump bandwagon is puzzling to me. When I express my concern, I am sometimes given an argument that goes something like this: “We’re not electing a pastor, we’re choosing a president.” The idea being that to expect the kind of “saintly” behavior, rhetoric, and demeanor demanded of the clergy in a politician is not a standard we should apply. That’s partly true, particularly when it comes to purely theological and spiritual issues. But when it comes to things like character and integrity, standards highlighted in scripture for those who...

    Former Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Saturday joined his predecessor in office in unloading on Donald Trump, calling the Republican front-runner's campaign racist and saying his discourse on immigration is fueling anti-American sentiment around the world. Calderon, a conservative who was president of Mexico from 2006 to 2012, even said he thought Trump was trying to exploit the same social feelings and resentments as did Adolf Hitler. "I think his logic of exalting white supremacy isn't even acting against immigration - Donald Trump is the descendant of migrants - it is acting and speaking against immigrants who have a different...

    Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck slammed Donald Trump's supporters Wednesday on his radio show as "vile" and likened them to Nazis -- while accusing Breitbart Chairman Stephen Bannon of doing Trump's bidding, comparing him to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. The conservative radio personality and former Fox News host lit into Trump and Bannon following an incident on the sidelines of Tuesday's Nevada caucuses, in which Trump visited a caucus site where Beck was campaigning for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. On his show, Beck accused Trump of dividing the country and "grooming brownshirts," while describing many of the Trump supporters...

    The most interesting thing about Leonardo DiCaprio's triumph at the Baftas was the manner in which he celebrated. At the banquet, the star of The Revenant demanded his own special menu and busied himself with an aubergine tian, a quinoa salad and a coconut crème brûlée with fresh raspberries. We can only imagine the excesses that followed. DiCaprio is -- we believe -- a vegan. Gwyneth Paltrow claims that he was the one who set her on the path to spirulina-munching virtue. Once upon a time, avoiding all animal products would have been an eccentric look for a Hollywood leading...

    Last week in New Hampshire, Republican presidential candidate John Kasich gave what many considered a gracious speech. He had just finished second, keeping his dim campaign hopes alive. The Ohio governor congratulated Donald Trump on his victory and then went on to talk about his own vision for America. It boiled down to the fundamental conservative doctrine of government as a last resort and the need to make sure no American is left behind. But then he said something curious. He said on that night in New Hampshire the country had turned a page in what he called a dark...

    In an essay to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Anne Frank's stepsister accused Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump of "acting like another Hitler." Eva Schloss, now 86, was a friend of Frank's in Amsterdam after their families fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Her mother, Fritzi, would marry Otto Frank, Anne's father, after World War II. "If Donald Trump become(s) the next president of the U.S. it would be a complete disaster," she told Newsweek on Wednesday. "I think he is acting like another Hitler by inciting racism."

Mike Fernandez, a Cuban-born major Republican donor from Miami who built his fortune in the health care industry, has bought full-page newspaper ads blasting Trump and planned to run a pro-Latino television ad during Wednesday's GOP debate coverage designed to counter Trump's anti-immigration message.

    After Donald Trump in recent weeks suggested stepping up security measures to put further scrutiny on Muslim Americans, such as surveilling mosques, liberals and conservatives alike called his ideas fascist. But in case those critiques didn't get the point across, some politicians and pundits are now making a more direct connection between Trump's views and Nazism. Donald Trump: "I want surveillance of certain mosques" For instance, New Day for America, the super PAC supporting the candidacy of Ohio's GOP Gov.

    Nazi monster Dr. Josef Mengele is known to have ordered the murder of over 400,000 Jews at Auschwitz from 1943 to 1945. Thousands more he kept alive and mercilessly tortured to death during experiments intended to create an Aryan super-race. Much of Mengele’s “medical research” was conducted on children and newborns – especially twins. One witness described what happened after Mengele once delivered a Jewish “fetus”: “But when he saw that there was only one baby and not twins, he tore the baby right out of the mother’s uterus, threw it into an oven and walked away,” she said. “We...

    Modern greens who inappropriately and metaphorically often use the term “denier” to compare global warming skeptics to Holocaust deniers are shockingly betrayed by their very own environmental history. Modern environmentalism was largely born in the racist forests of Germany in the 1800's that was at first anti-Semitic, but later became mixed up with Social Darwinian biological science in which the very word 'ecology' was coined in 1866. Today, the green movement is no longer racist, but has evolved into anti-humanism in general ...

In a statement yesterday, the Ohio Democrat said he is "passionate about fighting for the middle class. Ohio's teachers and nurses and police and firefighters are facing the loss of their collective-bargaining rights, and I think that's wrong."

No worries, though: Brown clarifies by saying that he’s not comparing Scott Walker to those guys — although, as we know, some of his fellow travelers outside the state Capitol are — but rather noting that unions appear to be an integral component of freedom. Is that so? Hitler and Stalin went after them not because they were...

Once such a comparison is made, the discussion is finished and whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically ‘lost’ whatever debate was in progress.” According to Godwin, Neil Abercrombie, with the polls slipping, has now flipped out and “lost” the debate.

    Dallas-Fort Worth sports columnist likens our patriotism to Nazi Germany An American sports columnist gets a bizarre Nazi flashback in Vancouver By Cam Battley, Canwest News Service March 2, 2010 It took the investigative skills of intrepid Fort Worth Star-Telegram sports columnist Gil LeBreton to uncover the ugly truth. Like Edward R. Murrow in pre-Second World War Vienna and London, Mr. LeBreton put his personal safety at risk to file a brave report from the turbulent city of Vancouver. Sure, Canadians seem multicultural, friendly and good-natured on the surface. But that's just what they want you to think. Dig a...

    Anybody inclined to laugh off the current Tea Bag Movement as just a passing fancy involving a few isolated kooks had better guess again. Analyze what was said at the group's recent convention where Sarah Palin regaled her audience along with the series of preceding rallies cheer led by Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and others and a disturbing trend surfaces. These Teabaggers hold some discomforting points in common with the Brownshirts of Germany's pre-Third Reich period. Many from the progressive movement in Germany during that period laughed off the appearance of "a funny looking little man with a mustache" along...

    They call themselves the Worldwide Loyalty Team. Among some employees, they are known as the Apple Gestapo, a group of moles always spying in headquarters and stores, reporting directly to Jobs and Oppenheimer. Here's how they hunt people down."You may want to know about their Worldwide Loyalty Team," Tom told me recently in an email. I read what he had to say. It felt like a description of the Gestapo, without the torture and killing part.Tom never lived in Nazi Germany, back in the time when the Geheime Staatspolize had the power to get into any house or any office,...

    Linguist and political activist Noam Chomsky criticizes right-wing media outlets, which he describes as delivering a message of paranoia and economic populism comparable to Nazis during the Weimar Republic. "There were people with real grievances," says Chomsky. "The Nazis gave them an answer."

    HITLER QUOTES REVEAL OBAMA and REGIME 1 Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it 2 How fortunate for leaders that men do not think.” 3 All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.” 4 “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.” 5 By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise. 6 “It is always more...

    Democrats manufactured the story that protestors at town hall meetings were carrying Nazi flags. Obama policies seem to be more closely aligned with the policies of Nazism, so a comparison of the two is necessary. Among the key elements of Nazism were Racism, Eugenics, leader principle, Government control of the industry, and of course moral relativism. http://www.wordiq.com/definition/Nazism. Those are also the principles of Obama's plan for a "better America" . The shared connection of racism speaks for itself. Both megalomaniacs, Hitler and Obama, are racists. Hitler, (who possibly was Jewish) hated Jews. Obama who clearly is partially white expressed his...

    ... Scott groused to the movie crowd that in America, unlike other countries, local curriculum content is set by - gasp - local school boards. Scott would like science curricula in every town and burg set by a national organization. Interestingly, Scott may have been milder than some of her colleagues. One panelist, Jon Amiel, who is currently making a movie on Darwin, compared those who deny evolution to those who deny that the Holocaust occurred. Great. Think for yourself, and you're a Holocaust denier. By the way, I looked up some promotional material for Amiel's movie, which is entitled,...

    Why is it that in descriptions of the words and activities of Rush Limbaugh, it is not pointed out the obvious similarity of Limbaugh and Adolph Hitler. Rush knows exactly what he has started. Do you remember how overbearing, intimidating and feared Sen. Joseph McCarthy became before his crudities and chilling attacks on patriotic citizens was stopped? The rise of Hitler came about through use of the same strident, rancorous and dangerous appeal to a populace who had suffered military defeat and in times of embarrassment for their loss of economic power – how the Germans suffered because of inflation...

    David Klinghoffer of the anti-evolution Discovery Institute has an opinion column in the Jerusalem Post, attacking Jewish groups like the ADL for protesting against Pope Benedict’s reinstatement of Holocaust-denying Bishop Richard Williamson. Klinghoffer calls it “whining:” The wages of whining. But the real purpose of Klinghoffer’s column is to attempt to redirect Jewish anger toward the Discovery Institute’s main target: the theory of evolution... But Klinghoffer’s false equivalence is even more thoroughly destroyed by the fact that the Nazis banned Darwin’s books:...

    Between the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 and the dawn hours of September 1,1939, there was time enough to birth a new generation in England and on the continent and to forget every lesson learned in the mud and blood of Flanders and Passchendaele. And so were the English, French, and we Americans duped in 1933. Or were we all? Did we not seek to be duped? Churchill read Mein Kampf and so did others. Why was he nearly alone in taking a lesson from it? What is it in men that encourages...

    Obama’s “Truth Squad?” Missouri public officials—law enforcement officials—pursuing those they believe may have “lied” or said something “misleading” about Neo? Free Republic has more, so I won’t repeat their brilliancy on the subject. One of their threads also provides a link to a news video where two of the MO officials promise to go after anyone “defaming” Obama. How can anyone see this and not break Godwin’s law? Pretend for a minute that such threats aren’t meaningless and puerile. Imagine also that they came from Republicans. Then take a shot of the hard alcoholic beverage of your choice (say, Patron)...
