Ohio Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown Compares Republicans to Hitler, Stalin … They Were Against Unions


Once again we are witness to another Democrat who appears not to have received the memo from President Barack Obama on civility. Obama is all for civility, unless it means defending his meal ticket, the unions.  Ohio Democrat US Senator Sherrod Brown stated that Hitler, Stalin and Mubarak did not want independent unions in a obvious comparison to Republicans.

“As a nation, I look back in history and some of the worst governments we’ve ever had, you know one of the the first thing they did? They went after the trade unions,” he said. “Hitler didn’t want unions, Stalin didn’t want unions. [Former Egyptian President Hosni] Mubarak didn’t want independent unions.”

 Oh those Civil Democrats …


From the Politico:

Brown continued: “I’m not comparing what’s happened to the workers in Madison or in Columbus to Hitler and Stalin but I am saying that history teaches us that unions are a very positive force in society that creates a middle class that protects our freedom.”

However, try as the Democrats and the LEFT may, we all know that unions for the most part have out-lived their usefulness and that Barack Obama is forever beholden to them for getting him elected. Just curious Mr. President, for an individual that is so for unions, why don’t you explain to the rank and file unions folks, why federal employees don’t have collective bargaining rights? Better yet, why don’t you voice your outrage at the incivility of tone of your fellow Democrats?

Hat Tip: Vanderbilt ’11

Brown was quick to say that he was not making a direct comparison of Republicans to Hitler. Of course your not Senator Brown, only an indirect one I guess. Um, then why did you make the point of referencing Hitler, Stalin and Mubarak? Funny, because the union protesters in Wisconsin and across the country have compared Wisconsin Gov. Walker and other Republicans to Hitler, Stalin, Mubarak and other dictators. So all in the same diatribe, Brown evokes the history of Hitler and Stalin to say that the GOP is doing something similar to what they did, then in the same breathe claims he is not making a comparison. It is only the LEFT that gets away with this type of BS.

The hypocrisy of the angry, mean LEFT … They claimed the Tea Party was hateful


Very nice hyperbole, well may be in actual fact presented by Erik Erickson of Red State.

That’s not hyperbole. That is actual fact. I wouldn’t bring this up except Sherrod Brown is calling Jim DeMint and Scott Walker “nazis” except they, just like Sherrod Brown, are not Nazis. Or something like that. Senator Brown seems confused. He’s comparing them to Hitler and Stalin, but denying he is comparing them to Hitler and Stalin

      extreme left likened Bush to Hitler
      extreme right likened Obama to Hitler

      ergo: both sides are full of sh*t and need to brush up on their history

      To have a US Senator compare the Republican Party to Hitler is a little different than your typical idiot on the street call them Hitler. He is supposed to be an educated idiot but every time he opens his mouth it is very obvious to me that he has no formal education. The good news is in 2012 I get to help vote this uneducated idiot out since I live in Ohio. Then he can join up with our former whiny a** Governor Strickland whine all day together. Speaking of Strickland and Brown, my fellow Ohioians “What were you thinking”?

      Ya just gotta love Public Sector Union Bosses.
      They ‘negotiate’ with Politicians for higher pay
      and benefits. Union dues are collected and used
      to re-elect Politicians that readily accommodate
      those ‘negotiated’ demands. Taxpayers are only
      ‘in the loop’ to supply the wages and benefits
      for the Unions. Seems that the Special Protections
      in place for Public Employees is simply not enough.
      Chris Christie and Scott Walker can see thru the
      rotten pattern!

      The Nazi Party originated from the Pan-Germanist Union. It was know as the National Socialist German Workers Party. Far more closely related to the Democratic Party (with it’s socialism, and anti-capitalistic views), than the Republican Party.

      True, the Nazi Party recognized the power of the Labor Unions, so they infiltrated them, much like the Democrat party in the U.S. have done today.

      Hitler and Stalin were put in power by political labor parties. NAZI is the abbreviation for National Socialist German Workers Party which is nearly identical to labor unions found in Wisconsin. Stalin rode to power on Lenin’s coat tails and they were empowered by a faction of the Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labour Party known as Bolsheviks.

      It is more accurate to say that NAZI, socialism, and communism came from unions than it is to say they did away with them.

      Red, posts get deleted or thrown auto in spam folder?
      SM: I’m not Red but I can tell you there is spam software running that automatically puts posts it determines to be spam in the spam folder. Sometimes the software makes a mistake. Sometimes we get more spam than usual. It is common to get thousands of spam posts a day that go to the spam folder. (klaasend)
