Parroting Conspiracy Theorist, Drudge Compares Obama To Hitler And Stalin

Source: Think Progress

Infowars.com founder and conspiracy guru Alex Jones is enjoying a boatload of publicity after his unhinged appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Monday evening. Jones compared President Obama to several dictators during the interview and called for a revolt. His moment in the news cycle appears to be winding down, though he now claims he is being followed by “crackhead cops”. But Jones has one prominent devotee who has faithfully promoted his screeds: Matt Drudge.

On Wednesday, the immensely popular Drudge Report helpfully echoed Jones’ comparison of Obama to Hitler and Stalin a couple days after the conspiracy theorist went on his televised rant about guns:



Morgan invited Jones on the show to discuss Jones’ petition to deport the British host for his gun control advocacy, but the interview quickly devolved into a bizarre, explosive diatribe about tyranny. Jones ranted:

Hitler took the guns! Stalin took the guns! Mao took the guns! Fidel Castro took the guns! Hugo Chavez took the guns! And I’m here to tell you that 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!

The GOP's favorite message man goes full Alex Jones-er.



Expect moderate and reasonable voice in the conservative movement to denounce this move a week from never.

1. The clear path forward

With this, ahem, report the path ahead is clear. America needs an affordable health care system and greater access to mental health treatment. Both the tragedies and the spouting idiots that follow need more help than is currently offered.

2. Does this mean Dennis Miller switches sides again?


''People say I've slid to the right,'' Mr. Miller said in his office at the NBC Studios in Burbank, speaking in his rat-a-tat-tat style. ''Well, can you blame me? One of the biggest malfeasances of the left right now is the mislabeling of Hitler. Quit saying this guy is Hitler,'' he said, referring to Mr. Bush. ''Hitler is Hitler. That's the quintessential evil in the history of the universe, and we're throwing it around on MoveOn.org to win a contest. That's grotesque to me.''

4. If Obama was really Marxist he'd toss Drudge in the Gulag.

5. These guys are going to give Hitler and Stalin a good name

 

We've already seen that the right's incessant screams of "socialism!" have caused the word to lose its negative connotation among the younger generation. If they keep comparing Obama to Hitler and Stalin, kids are going to start saying, "hey, these Hitler and Stalin guys sound p.cool"
