Walker, Taxes Stranger

hope-a-dopeA quote has been floating around the internet lately, tickling Progressive fancies, attributed to Adolph Hitler. It goes as follows:

"We must close union offices, confiscate their money and put their leaders in prison. We must reduce workers salaries and take away their right to strike."

Although we on the Left got a hearty laugh at the obvious comparison between Mr. Holocaust of 1945 and just about every Republican governor in America I'm sad to report that Mr. Hitler did not ever utter those choice words.

In fact, he publicly praised trade unions... just before shutting them down, confiscating their funds and putting their leaders in concentration camps.

<sarcasm>I should, at this point, remind everyone that Hitler strove to become chancellor of Germany specifically for the chance to slaughter the Jews and that money and power had nothing to do with it. Similarly, Gorvernor Walker is following the Nazi handbook for our own good. </sarcasm>

It should be noted that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker never even mentioned abolishing public sector unions in his campaigns speeches because, you know, everyone hates that idea and would not vote for you. So I guess he and Adolph have a lot more in common than we think, although I doubt he'll be invading Russia via Canada anytime soon. Even with global warning Russia is a frigid BITCH in February and gas is, you know, $4.00 a gallon.

You may think I'm going overboard with this Hitler comparison but I'm not. This is a holocaust, kids, a fiscal holocaust. There is a massive redistribution of wealth of hitherto unknown proportions currently at work all across this country and none of it is going to you. And by "you" and I mean anyone who's not already in on the scam. We, the people, are being soaked for the benefit of cronies and oligarchs. There are no Democrats, by and large, responsible for this assault. It is the Republicans who've decided now is the time to drive deep into our pocketbooks and it is nothing less than a blitzkrieg, pure and simple.

PS, the following cartoon was from 2009. No one can say that Wisconsin wasn't warned.

One of the first moves by the Nazi government to consolidate power was the abolition of trade unions.

What, then, is the single biggest difference between Governor Scott Walker and the Adolf Hitler of 1933?

Petition for Recall.
