115. Yet another similarity between the GOP and the Nazis.
From their affinity for lapel pins all the way up to their choice of financial partners, Republicans and Nazis go hand in hand.

The Nazis relied heavily on their streetbrawlers (the Sturmabteilung, "storm section," or SA) during their rise to power, specifically to interrupt other political rallies and hearings and to engage in "collisions" with other groups in order to stifle political expression. Once Nazi power was consolidated, they murdered the SA leadership in The Night of the Long Knives, as the blunt-trauma tactics of the SA were no longer needed.

Now, in the twilight of its own existence, the Republican party finds that it too needs organized goons. We're watching the party of Lincoln devolve into armband-wearing thugs, right before our eyes.
