Keith Ellison, D-Mn, made that comparison.
Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, a Democrat, compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. This was probably burned down by the Nazis in order to justify Hitler’s later seizure of emergency powers.
“It’s almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that,” Mr Ellison said. “After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted.”
One question I have for Ellison– if Bush was responsible, wouldn’t he have tried something like this before 2000 to guarantee he would be elected? Or was he secretly responsible for the Twin Towers bombing in 1993?
And the Bu$$$$hitler has certainly gotten everything he wanted. He got:
1) A Recession.
2) A Democratic Congress for more than half of his Presidency.
3) An unfixed Social Security program
4) An approval rating that’s stayed above 70%.
5) A failed immigration strategy.
Just to name a few. He must be a true Evil Genius because I even I can’t see how his evil strategy managed to get him into office and then produce such a dismal record.
UPDATE: The Video is here. The Reichstag comments around about 1:30 into the video.
