Via HotAir, which pitches it as a “marine go[ing] nuclear on Democrat over Obamacare,” here’s a video making the rounds on the right: David Hedrick, a “member of the silent majority,” accusing the Democrats of being Nazis at a town hall held by Rep. Brian Baird (D-Wash.).
I’ll remind you, a little history lesson. The Nazis were the National Socialist Party. They were leftists. They took over the finance, they took over the car industry, they took over health care in that country. If Nancy Pelosi wants to find a swastika, maybe the first place she should look is the sleeve of her own arm.
While conservative bloggers like John McCormack have been claiming that Lyndon LaRouche cultists are the only people making Nazi references at town halls, here’s a proud conservative making that argument, uploading it to YouTube, and getting 250,000 views so far. Ironically, the Pelosi comment that made Hedrick so angry was her suggestion that… town hall protesters were comparing the Democrats to Nazis. (It’s also worth noting how important the government’s temporary takeover of General Motors has been in conservative mythos.) Video after the jump.
