For eight years, we’ve heard “Bushitler” invoked endlessly.
Now, the tables have been turned. Some folks are invoking Nazi allusions against Barack Obama.
I’ve pretty much stayed away from using such rhetoric against those with whom I disagree — especially having been on the receiving end of Nazi allusions myself countless times over the years.
Here, for example, is a typical Nazi caricature of me during a trip to Berkeley several years ago:
But now, get this.
The left-wing blogosphere is suddenly up in arms over the sight of others mimicking their over-the-top rhetoric of the past eight years. A protester who attended the Denver Pig Roast today had such a sign and asked for a picture with me. The nutroots are having vapors about it:
The sign says “No Obama” with the fascist symbol inside the “O.”
The Kossacks think I should be fired from my job (ha).
In Obama’s America, you see, swastikas wielded for political protest are not allowed to be used…
…for anything other than the “S” in Bushitler.
