16. Here's my idea...

Lets bring home every service man and woman home ASAP and send Grover and his pals over to replace them all, ASAP. Look at the billions of dollars the taxpayers would save.

If we were really Nazis, Grover would be hand digging and loading coal, with a broom up his ass to sweep up the mine, 24/7, with wormy turnip soup for lunch.

But go on, and keep repeating this one, Grover, because it makes you sound like a total idiot--and it should help to mobilize the Democratic base, too!

If he believes it then he's an idiot. If he's just saying it in an attempt to sway the masses, then he's an amoral assclown.

26. From the same guy who once likened the estate tax to the Holocaust. Figures.

Terry Gross, Grover Norquist and the Holocaust



Terry Gross: Excuse me. Excuse me one second. Did you just ...

Grover Norquist: Yeah?

Terry Gross: -- compare the estate tax with the Holocaust?

Grover Norquist: No, the morality that says it's OK to do something to do a group because they're a small percentage of the population is the morality that says that the Holocaust is OK because they didn't target everybody, just a small percentage. What are you worried about? It's not you. It's not you. It's them. And arguing that it's OK to loot some group because it's them, or kill some group because it's them and because it's a small number, that has no place in a democratic society that treats people equally. The government's going to do something to or for us, it should treat us all equally."

... who's convinced that his demographic is among the most discriminated against on the planet.

And the irony is that he's not wealthy but merely middle-class.

Yet instead of being angry with the rich who are robbing him blind, he's mad at practically everyone else.

51. Somewhere on DU there is a cartoon about those guys...

It shows the guy you describe saying that he's a Republican to keep minorities, women, immigrants, etc. from ruining his life - and then it shows a 1%/corporate type who says he's a Republican to keep voters like that middle class guy from knowing he's the one ruining his life.

Perfect!

38. Norquist stole "the original German" from Molly Ivins (Buchanan's 1992 speech at the GOP Convention)

On the subject of Pat Buchanan's famously combative "culture war speech" at the 1992 Republican Convention, which attracted controversy over Buchanan's aggressive rhetoric against Bill Clinton, liberals, supporters of reproductive and gay rights, and for his comparison of American politics to religious warfare, Ivins famously quipped that the speech had "probably sounded better in the original German," noting the similarity between the concept of "culture war" and the Kulturkampf of Otto von Bismarck's Germany

... In July 1985, Norquist attended a conference hosted by the National Student Federation (NSF) in Johannesburg, South Africa. The NSF supported apartheid in South Africa and was allied with the pro-apartheid South African Defense Force (SADF). The SADF enforced apartheid policies and fought in the Angolan Bush War to preserve discriminatory treatment of Africans ...

48. The burning question?

Why does Norquist get so much face time? Isn't he just an ordinary citizen? Apartheid was about rascism, Nazism was about extinguishing a race of people; also rascism. So what he has to say here is mostly about himself and the republicans in this country, it has nothing to do with collecting taxes from a billionaire that owes his fair share. Once again why does this dirt-slinger get so much face time?

The idea that you can have all the advantages of living in America but accept none of the responsibilities is what fuels this person. I say, renounce your citizenship Mr. Norquist if paying taxes is so heinous!!!

50. When he was in the House

At various time, Schumer represented Williamsburg (pre-hipster) and Midwood, both of which were and are heavily jewish neighborhoods. So yeah they were voting for a Nazi.

I have problems with some of his policies - he's too close to Israel and Wall Street - but the man is a tireless champion of regular people and the Democratic Party. There is no issue too small for the guy, even though he's a U.S. Senator. I have supported him every time he ran.

Compare that to Grover Nordquist, apostle of greed and power, knight errant of would be kings and dictators.
