Senator Sherrod Brown compares Republicans to Hitler, Stalin
Here is your new tone, America. Brought to you by the Democratic party:
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. Mubarak didn’t want independent unions.”
Erik Erickson provides a slap, upside the head:
Hitler dissolved the Weimar Republic’s unions and consolidated them into the German equivalent of the AFL-CIO, basing the unions on socialist equality principles. Yes, he dissolved the unions. But he only did so because they weren’t “union” enough. […]
It might shock Sherrod Brown, who shows no signs of being familiar at all with history, that the Nazis also supported universal healthcare, expanded animal welfare laws, support of healthy, organic foods and vegetarianism, a minimum wage, progressive taxation, and tight gun control — policies Sherrod Brown supports too.
Poor ignorant Democrats.
