    Prince Charles has sensationally likened Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler. In a withering verdict on the actions of the Russian president in Ukraine, he told a woman who lost relatives in the Nazi Holocaust: ‘And now Putin is doing just about the same as Hitler.’

    Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn says that his campaign did not actually read a controversial article comparing black Republicans to Jewish Nazi collaborators before tweeting it several times to the public. Quinn has been under heavy fire from the Jewish and black communities since the Washington Free Beacon first reported that his campaign had tweeted—and then quietly deleted—several messages urging backers to read a Chicago Sun Times article that compared conservative black voters to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis. Quinn—who would not address the controversy during a Holocaust memorial event yesterday evening—had his campaign issue a statement claiming that...

    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 ...

    Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson is likening a powerful Michigan Republican to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Patterson referred to State House speaker Jase Bolger as “Adolf” as cameras rolled for the latest edition of the weekly “Off the Record” political TV show, hosted by WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick. His comments were: “Adolf Bolger has really become very arrogant and he’s throwing his weight around up there and I think he’s embarrassing himself. “If he thinks he’s going to be a candidate for governor, he better learn how to control his temper and he better learn better how...

    A professor at Brooklyn College recently published a series of articles on the official campus website in which he associated climate change skeptics with early Holocaust deniers."I make my 'climate change denier' claim for one reason," wrote Micha Tomkiewicz, the Director of Environmental Studies at Brooklyn College and himself a Holocaust survivor. "It's easy today to teach students to condemn the Holocaust, but it's much more difficult to teach them how to try to prevent future genocides...I don't want my grandchildren to die in a climate change genocide that we could have helped head off," he continued.

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown has apologized for a speech in which he invoked the names of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin while he criticized Republican efforts in Ohio and Wisconsin to curtail the power of public-employee unions to bargain with state and local governments. 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." "But in speaking about this, I should not have mentioned the hostility of tyrants like Hitler...

(That one made it all the way to the House floor.) 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...

    The Memphis Democrat has been called out by Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show" for his "wrong" choice of words. He's gone toe-to-toe with Anderson Cooper on CNN, who called him a hypocrite. Rush Limbaugh called him "pathetic." And people across the spectrum have called on him to apologize. His newfound notoriety stems from a Tuesday night speech in which Cohen called Republicans' talking point about "a government takeover of health" the kind of repeated "big lie" Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels perfected.

    In a shocking Civil Beat report, Neil Abercrombie denounces his opponents as Nazis and enemies of civil rights. He points to ousted Broken Trust Trustee Dickie Wong as an example of “people coming together.” Godwin’s Law applies: "As a discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 100%. 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.

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.

The comments came from Rev. Clayton Childers, of the Washington-based United Methodist Board of Church and Society, who said, "The presence of a national flag in worship can imply endorsement of national policies which often run counter to the teachings of Jesus Christ and our Christian faith. … One need only recall the way the swastika flag was displayed prominently...
