Hitler comparisons now en vogue against people demanding representation in Europe, as well…

In these enlightened days, where Savior Barack is bringing peace and civility to the national dialogue with a wave of his HopenChange wand, it’s actually a little comforting to find that we’re not the only part of the world where people who demand representation are called Nazis and fascists. Enter Nigel Farage, a member of the European Parliament for England, and a major voice in the movement to withdraw the UK from the European Union. In the midst of pointing out that leaders of the EU are not being elected, and therefore held accountable to the people they rule over(I know, but the crown in Britain is effectively powerless), he is chided for “getting personal” with his attack. He responds by pointing out that the person who is chiding him belongs to a group that invoked Godwin on his political movement. Amazing how people who pull that card so quickly forget their own words.
This is far from the first time Farage has made a ruckus about his displeasure with the state of the EU. Fascinating to watch someone express concerns about unelected officials overseas in much the same way we’ve been raising our voices over people like Van Jones and Kevin Jennings. Much of the UKIP’s chief political concerns are not too dissimilar to ours. Perhaps we should compare notes. At the very least, I think I’ve got a new man-crush.
