Nancy Pelosi says I’m a Nazi
OK, I usually follow the guideline that “if you bring the Nazis into the discussion you’ve run out of useful things to say”, but I’m going to be even *more* juvenile and use the defense that “SHE started it!”
Accoding to the folks at Real Cler Politics, Nancy Pelosi claims protesters are “carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare.” link here.
Here’s the thing I find so ironic about this – guess who was one of the first political parties to bring about universal health care in Europe? Anyone? Beuler? Beuler? Beuler?
The answer is, the Nataionale Sociliste Deutcsche Arbeiter Partie (NSDAP, or National Socialist German Workers Party), which later shortened its name to Nationale Socialiste, and later to Nazi. That’s right folks, universal health care was an essential part of the Nazi party platform.
Oh, and by the way, once they’d taken over the health care system, they decided that it was simply too expensive to maintain what was known as the time as the “feeble minded”; they quietly turned the mental institutions into abatoirs, in a move that was a tragic forewarning of the horrors to come.
Pretty much what you’d expect from a system that banned dissent and used government takeovers and a cult of personality to join industry, government, and trade unions into a strong central government (or fascie).
