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
