It’s a Hitlerfest!

President Obama’s relatively mild gun control proposals have provoked a blizzard of ridiculous Hitler/Nazi analogies from right wingers on Twitter. Read the comments for this page for dozens more.

President Obama’s Gun Control Op-Ed: Now Is the Time

Just one voice
Politics • Views: 23,727

From the President’s op-ed in the Connecticut Post:

Like most Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. There are millions of responsible, law-abiding gun owners in this country who cherish their right to bear arms for hunting, or sport; protection, or collection.

But I also believe most gun owners agree that we can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from doing harm. I believe most of them agree that if America worked harder to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, there would be fewer atrocities like the one in Connecticut. And that’s what these commonsense reforms are designed to do.

None of this will be easy. Already we’re seeing pundits, politicians, and special interest lobbyists warning of a tyrannical, all-out assault on liberty — not because it’s true, but because it gins up fear, or higher ratings, or more revenue for themselves.

The truth is, there’s only one voice powerful enough to make this happen: yours.

Marco Rubio on Fox: Obama Not ‘Truly Committed’ to the 2nd Amendment

Pumping out bigoted insinuations to the Fox News mob
Wingnuts • Views: 21,732

Remember when Sen. Marco Rubio’s name was pushed out there as an example of a “moderate” Republican? Not a Tea Party loon or far right social conservative?

Well, here’s Rubio on Fox News parroting pro-gun propaganda and invoking one of the most insidious right wing memes, the insinuation that President Obama is an “other” — a person who doesn’t truly understand the US Constitution, or American values.

It’s about one short step away from Birtherism, and even closer to racism. And it’s absolutely mainstream bigoted Republican politics; this lunatic insinuation was a very large part of Mitt Romney’s campaign rhetoric. The right wing base really responds to the idea that our first black president is actually a foreigner who secretly hates America.

NRA Planning ‘The Fight of the Century’ Against Obama

Gun crazed wingnuts going ballistic
Wingnuts • Views: 16,812

If you think the NRA’s attempt to drum up fury and hatred for President Obama is already despicable, just wait — you ain’t seen nothin’ yet: NRA Planning ‘The Fight of the Century’ Against Obama.

The National Rifle Association cast its opposition to Obama’s plans as “the fight of the century” in a letter circulated at the 35th annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show and Conference, known in the trade as “the SHOT show,” in Las Vegas.

“I warned you this day was coming and now it’s here,” Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s fiery executive vice president, wrote in a fund-raising letter to the group’s 4 million members. “It’s not about protecting your children. It’s not about stopping crime. It’s about banning your guns … PERIOD!”

The letter reflected the NRA’s tough, no-holds-barred campaign against tighter restrictions on weapons and echoed a sharp video released by the group that calls Obama an “elitist hypocrite” for having the Secret Service protect his two daughters at school while saying that he is “skeptical” about armed guards in all schools.
