“What a Day for an Auto-Da-Fe!”
Think Progress reports this latest example of open-mindedness exhibited by the Teabagging community:
At the event, local news stations were interviewing an Israeli man who was praising the “fantastic” “national health care” in Israel. During his remarks, a woman yelled out, “Heil Hitler!” The man stopped, became visibly upset, and exclaimed, “Did you hear this? She say to a Jew, ‘Heil Hitler’! Hear? I’m a Jew! You’re telling me, ‘Heil Hitler’? Shame of you!” After he angrily confronts her, the woman mocks him by making a crying sound to imply he is a whining baby.
This is precisely the kind of psychological projection the Right has elected to employ in its efforts to derail any kind of meaningful health care reform in this country. The wingnuts carry "Obama as Hitler" signs in order to disguise their own deep-seated and lizard-brained bigotries, they openly possess and wield assault rifles at the rallies to protest some completely unfounded rumor that Obama plans to take away their right to own guns, and they attempt to silence health care reformers by drowning out any real conversation with screams that their own First Amendment rights are being abridged.
And now this. It’s no wonder David Duke was so happy Obama was running for President. The membership rolls for the KKK must have seen a very healthy bump up over the past seven months.
