On the Today show this morning, an aspiring old author, Mr. Joe McGinniss, hoping to write a book and cash in on the left’ s obsession with the dazzling former Governor of Alaska, Mrs. Sarah Palin, defended his locating next door to the home of the subject of his planned diatribe. McGinniss cleared matters up for viewers. He is the victim. Mrs. Palin has turned loose the “hounds of hell, and now they’ re out there slavering and barking and growling,” McGinniss said. “That’s the same kind of tactic — and I’m not calling her a Nazi — but that’s the same kind of tactic that that the Nazi troopers used in Germany in the ’30s, and I don’t think there’s any place for it in America.”
Nazi tactics employed by Mrs. Palin include taking Mr. McGinniss’s picture, a posting on Facebook, describing the creep as a creep, and the building of a large fence by a real man, Mr. Palin, to allow a modicum of privacy
For me, the self-pity and horrors of Mr. McGinniss’ s travails would all be amusing, if not for the continued trivialization of the historic reality of the Nazis. For the longest time, anything not approved of by liberals and leftists has been branded Nazi. Arizona’s state law designed to enforce federal immigration law has met with this same stupid usage. A good question for Mr. McGinniss is which Jewish victim of the Holocaust, and all other victims of Nazi terror, would mind sharing his suffering and trading places? The man is more than a creep. He’s an ignorant whiner.
