MSNBC: ObamaCare Opponents Are Holocaust Deniers

Posted by Dave Blount at August 12, 2009 7:09 AM

Someone had better tuck the propagandists at MSNBC away for naptime before their infantile rhetoric gets any further out of hand. The latest from the fever swamp that spawned Keith Odormann and Tweetie Matthews: opponents of socialized medicine are holocaust deniers and more dangerous than Mad Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Rush Limbaugh and those invoking the Nazi analogy to attack President Barack Obama's effort to reform health care in America are not "insane" as David Brooks pronounced on last Sunday's "Meet the Press." Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and the rest of the loud-mouthed right wing are, when they even hint at an analogy to the Nazis in talking about Obama's health reform effort, engaged in something far worse than insanity. They are engaged in the vile evil of Holocaust denial.
For some time now, Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has held the title of the world's most dangerous anti-Semite due to his denial that the Holocaust occurred. Limbaugh and his ilk who have been throwing around references to Adolf Hitler, National socialism and Nazi medicine without hesitation have surpassed the danger posed by the Iranian president.

The author then goes on to yell about how awful the Nazis were. Yeah, we know. That's why we don't want people who share their disregard for the value of human life to seize control of our healthcare system.
