There Goes Elizabeth Warren Being Hitler Again
Having successfully fucked over a Texas charitylast week, Stupidest Man on the Internet Jim Hoft decided to try some new formats over the weekend, and attempted a Buzzfeed-style listicle. For instance, based on a tip from a reader, he noticed some ideas in Elizabeth Warren's 'Eleven Commandments for Progressives"that were"EERILY SIMILAR"to the"25 points of the Nazi Party" as promulgated by Hitler in 1920. We looked at the two lists, and we have to agree: they are both lists!
First off, you have Warren's list of 11 principles that she said answer the question, "What does it mean to be a progressive?":
"We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we're willing to fight for it."
"We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth."
"We believe that the Internet shouldn't be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality."
"We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage."
"We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them."
"We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt."
"We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions."
"We believe—I can't believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work."
"We believe that equal means equal, and that's true in marriage, it's true in the workplace, it's true in all of America."
"We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform."
"And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!"
Warren also added that in her view, the chief tenet of conservatism is "I got mine. The rest of you are on your own."
Then Jim Hoft points out:
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a list like this.
As reader Tom W. reminded us, socialist party leader Adolf Hitler put together a similar list decades ago.
Yep, that Hitler was such a socialist, what with putting all the socialists in concentration camps. Now, we're not going to list everything in the Nazi Party list of 1920, because Hoft (or maybe his reader) highlights the ones that are EERILY SIMILAR to Elizabeth Warren's list:
13. Wedemand the nationalization of all trusts.
14. Wedemand profit-sharing in large industries.
15. Wedemand a generous increase in old-age pensions.
16. Wedemand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class,the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.
Gosh, strong regulation of Wall Street IS exactly like nationalizing the banks, isn't it? And lord knows, the only people in favor of Social Security are Elizabeth Warren and her Marxist pal Hitler. And you know who else wanted a "sound middle class"? Besides every politician ever, we mean?
And the astonishing parallels just keep coming:
20.In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people.The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State.
21.The State has the duty to help raise the standard of national health by providing maternity welfare centers,by prohibiting juvenile labor, by increasing physical fitness through the introduction of compulsory games and gymnastics, and by the greatest possible encouragement of associations concerned with the physical education of the young.
Yes, That Elizabeth Warren is in favor of students going to college and women having equal access to healthcare -- JUST LIKE HITLER!!!!
We hope that Gateway Pundit readers will immediately refuse to use other Hitlerian schemes, like the Interstate Highway System, or as we like to call them, Hitler Roads. And of course, we should also remind them that the Nazi doctors in Hitler's socialist medical system injected patients with "antibiotics" to "fight infection" -- another pernicious Nazi ideal that must be rejected by clear-thinking Americans.
Strangely, though, there are some parts of Hitler's agenda that don't sound all that much like anything Elizabeth Warren said. Consider these points from the same list. Don't they sound like something a Tea partier could get behind, especially with this big Crisis on the Border?
5. Those who are not citizens must live in Germany as foreigners and must be subject to the law of aliens.
6. The right to choose the government and determine the laws of the State shall belong only to citizens. We therefore demand that no public office, of whatever nature, whether in the central government, the province, or the municipality, shall be held by anyone who is not a citizen.
8. Any further immigration of non-[Americans] must be prevented. We demand that non-[Americans] who have entered [America] since August 2, , shall be compelled to leave the [Republic] immediately.
America for Americans! Uber alles, even.
