A Texas college professor was captured on video comparing the tea party to Nazis in Germany in the 1930s, and imploring the class not to tell anyone that he said so.

Not that you’d expect that he would be all that upset if word got out.

“In 1931, which was really interesting, the Nazis — people were kind of tired of them,” the professor can be heard saying. “They’ve been around since 1920, 11 years now. They’ve won seats — they’re like the tea party!”

That’s such a good example, ” he added. “Don’t tell anybody I said that though.”

“But in the sense of how they politically came to power, there’s a good analogy there,” he continued. “That eventually, people realized, ‘Oh these Nazis are a bunch of nuts … these tea party people are a bunch of nuts.’ I mean, the analogy really is a good analogy.”

An anonymous student identified the professor as Dr. Blake Armstrong from South Texas College, according to The Blaze. The student told The Blaze that he began recording the professor after he allegedly “called Sen. Ted Cruz a ‘bastard’ for using the name ‘Cruz’ to win his election.”
