New MSNBC talking point: This Rand Paul incident is reminiscent of 1930s Germany

posted at 8:02 pm on October 26, 2010 by Allahpundit

Can I quote myself here? From the Behar post published this afternoon:

We are, after all, now seven short days away from Election Day, which means Refudiation Week has officially begun. And needless to say, as the reality of the wave crashes in, I suspect we’re going to see some mighty interesting coping mechanisms playing out among among liberals. Pelosi’s already entered some sort of Queeg-ian fugue state of denial, and last night on Twitter Olbermann was promising a 20-minute mega-special comment rant tomorrow about the tea party. By the end of the week I expect Bob Beckel to be weeping openly on-air and near-hourly references to 1933 Germany on MSNBC.

That was posted at 4:27 p.m.; the Matthews clip below comes from the 5 p.m. hour and the Schultz clip below that comes an hour after that, with no doubt plenty more in store tonight from Olby and Maddow. That’s how easy it now is to predict MSNBC spin. And as I said earlier, if you think this is rock bottom in terms of liberal desperation this week, just wait. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Schultz’s clip is actually worth watching in full at MSNBC’s site thanks to his frantic demands to know where the liberal violence against conservatives is. You mean, aside from the incident at the same Rand Paul rally last night, Ed? Or aside from the beating dropped on Kenneth Gladney? I know, I know: He’s a black tea partier so he doesn’t count.

Behar, Matthews, Beckel….what Baghdad Bob isn’t available for comment…B.B: A Republican take over of the House is impossible, there are no Republicans even in close house races, running for house seats. I mean if they are serious about naked delusionary propaganda…go with the best of the best.

Enough with the Germany CRAP! Jeez libs, get a freakin’ clue; or a vocabulary.
Every time we turn around it’s “ooooohhh they’re a racist” or “oh oh oh they’re Nazis and facists”. Can’t you people come up with different words? Are you too stupid to be original? Do you REALLY think that saying those things ONE MORE TIME will make a difference?

Yellowdog12 on October 26, 2010 at 10:45 PM

you notice tingles only focus on the first occurance not the 2nd one…

hmmm

F. Chuck Todd: Official Obama Sack Shiner.

Ed Schultz? You should tear up over your ratings, not some made-up Rand Paul “women issues” meme.

What’s with MSNBC and their Nazi fetish?

Question: If you executed a search warrant at MSNBC, how many portraits of Hitler would be confiscated?

David2.0 on October 26, 2010 at 11:13 PM

The ONLY thing about this election that resembles Nazi Germany is the constant stream of propaganda comming from msnbc.

Clearly they are living in the hope of telling the biggest lie again and again is going to make people believe them!

I am so sick of these Nazi Germany references from anyone. It must be horribly offensive to those who suffered during that time. With all the bad things going on in this countey and this world, this happens and suddenly we’re on the verge of the Night of Broken Glass? Someone needs to make these talking turds understand how they are deligitimizing a truly evil part of world history just for their own political satisfaction and desire to boost their own egos and ratings.

Isn’t this the guy who said he would cheat (ie voter fraud) to keep the Republicans out of office?

Why is there a post with him in the topic? His opinions should not get air time from you AP.

References to Nazi Germany are a part of American politics for some time now. For 8 years George W. Bush was Hitler – Now Obama is Hitler. I’m sure our next President will be Hitler too.

The liberal media and blogs are definitely turning this incident into a major comment on teaparty violence.

It was pretty darn ugly to watch.

Except it was an example of mob mentality. Politics and ideology were irrelevant , in my opinion.

Mr_Magoo on October 27, 2010 at 9:44 AM

She was not alone there. And she was a paid political activist, there on a mission to disrupt the rally.

kingsjester on October 27, 2010 at 9:53 AM

You mean Chris Matthews still has a television program?

How many people tune in?

Three?

Four?

Has he been placed in the care of a good psychiatrist yet?

Has he been recieving his meds, including tranqulizers for his hyperactive behavior?

Does he even stop and take a breath once in a while?

Remember, Chris, take your medication. You need it.

And, no, Barack Hussein Obama does NOT have super human abilities.

What kind of stuff are you smokin’?

William2006 on October 27, 2010 at 3:37 PM

Who is that effeminate blow hard who reminds me of the drunken uncle that people seldom see all year, attending a picnic.

He is the guy who slobbers all over himself, while constantly mumbling incoherent, nonsense platitudes and disjointed comments all day long?

Yikes!

The inmates have escaped the assylum.

Take a look at how Poor Lil’ Helpless Lauren Valle threw her hands, forearms and her Rand Paul Sign, while she was posing as a RepubliCorp Paul Supporter, Into Rand Paul’s open passenger-side Window, and You’ll see for Yourselves how his Security Detail rushed the vehicle because they’re Expecting such attacks and probably Worse Attacks FROM Progressive MoveOn Sociopaths just Like her, as we get closer to Election Day.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=yiLeud-sxrM#!

“I want you to argue with them and get in their face,” he (Obama) said. Well, Valle Did. BIG Mistake.

She seems just Fine Today though. I mean, She and Her Proggie Yapper were Up and Running Again. Making the rounds right Through the MSM’s Revolving-Melodrama doors.

I just Love the way that she Immediately went limp to accentuate the Paul Supporters Non-beatdown “Beatdown” of her Too. GRR! Meanies.

Oh, and Btw, Point Of Order, Herr Tingles! “Right. Somebody who can take her into a room and only he comes out.”

Sie haben a Colleague Und Fellow Obama Man-Crushie, Chrissy. Ein Bathtub Boy, who once “suggested” that somebody, a He, take Hillary Clinton into a room and Beat Her. So much so, that She’d be physically Incapable of getting up on her Own, and walking Out Of said room.

Humm, seems Ms? Valle has a rap sheet

Rand Paul Protestor Previously Arrested For Vandalizing Ship At Fourchon

Monday, May 24, 2010
Activists Face Felony Charges – Sgt. Lesley Hill Peters
Sheriff Craig Webre and Harbor Police Chief John Callais announced the arrest of seven Greenpeace activists in Port Fourchon. A complaint came in at approximately 12:45 PM stating the seven had boarded a vessel at Port Fourchon and painted messages with an unknown substance on different areas of the ship.

Secretary Janet Napolitano regarding the ongoing oil spill impacting the Louisiana coastline. Those arrested were:

Lindsey Renee Allen (W/F, DOB 9/3/81, 149 Clayton Circle, Vacaville, CA)
Lauren Valle (W/F, DOB 5/4/87, 415 Shorewood Drive East, Falmouth, MA)
• Emma Cassidy (W/F, DOB 6/4/85, 3653 13th St. Northwest, Washington, DC)

The New York Daily News reports Valle, a 23-year old Columbia religion graduate, was hired by MoveOn.org for three weeks to work on the “Republicorp” project in Kentucky; it can only be assumed her role was to follow Paul around and attempt to embarrass him.
