Rob Reiner Likens 'Tea Party' Movement To Hitler

Powered by Topple

hitler2Editor’s Note – For weeks on end, all throughout the country, there has been a steady drumbeat of attacks on the tea party by the media. 

The attacks include the now prerequisite charges of racism and extremism, however, as we get closer to the election, the vitriol is getting more intense.  Just this past week, those who make up the tea party movement have been accused of being “cult-ish”, and now we have this pinhead from Hollywood comparing these average, everyday Americans to Hitler.

If ever there were a poster child for Left Coast limousine liberals, racked with white-guilt, a bleeding heart and a void in the spinal column, it is Rob Reiner!

The ultimate irony here is that we have the most radical elements of the far left calling the tea party extreme.  They’re fine with Communist’s, Marxist’s and revolutionaries, but start talking about the Founding Fathers or the U.S. Constitution and they lose their mind!  How did we get here???

 

Rob Reiner Likens ‘Tea Party’ Movement To Hitler

L.A. Times

The actor formerly known as Meathead blasted the “tea party” movement Friday night on HBO, comparing its followers to the Nazis.

“My fear is that the tea party gets a charismatic leader,” actor/director Rob Reiner said to applause in front of a live audience on Bill Maher’s “Real Time.” “Because all they’re selling is fear and anger. And that’s all Hitler sold. ‘I’m angry and I’m frightened and you should hate that guy over there.’ And that’s what they’re doing.”

Ranting between the senior advisor for the 2008 McCain/Palin campaign, Nicolle Wallace, and ABC’s Jake Tapper, Reiner began his assault on the tea party by talking about the likes of Christine O’Donnell, the GOP nominee for U.S. senator in Delaware. “They’re selling stupidity,” the director of “Spinal Tap” said. “They’re selling stupidity and ignorance and I’ve never seen a group of people, I’ve never seen an election cycle, with more ignorance than this one.”

And then Reiner began his comparison of the splinter group and the Nazi party’s Adolf Hitler. “He wasn’t a majority guy, but he was charismatic and they were having bad economic times –- just like we are now –- people were out of work, they needed jobs and a guy came along and rallied the troops,” Reiner said with an energy that America lapped up when he was a tie-dye-sporting hippie lashing out at his television father-in-law, Archie Bunker, in the hugely successful “All in the Family.”
