Liberal Kook of the Week
This week's honors go to Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), America's first Muslim congressman.
[Ellison] 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."
To applause from his audience of 300 members of Atheists for Human Rights, Mr Ellison said he would not accuse the Bush administration of planning 9/11 because "you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box - dismiss you".
Really? Then why throw out that comparison, Mr. Ellison? Because you are a "nut-ball" to think that George W. Bush, that incompetent, bumbling idiot as far as your Democratic friends are concerned, masterminded the 9/11 attacks a mere 9 months after coming into office because, apparently, he had dastardly, evil intentions to abuse his power and rule the world from the time he decided to run for office. Do you have any idea how retarded that sounds to Americans with an ounce of common sense???
