In The Future, Everyone Will Be A Klansman For 15 Minutes
Newsalert catches Tennessee Democrat Steve Cohen comparing Tea Partiers to the KKK, along with namedropping Kristallnacht:
If Cohen’s name sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because Cohen himself has been on the receiving of such treatment. As Allahpundit noted in August of 2008, “Race-baiting ad of the day: Democrat compares opponent to Klansman:”
Of what vile sin could this Republican brute be guilty? Did he display a photo, perhaps, of Barack Obama talking to a white woman, along the same lines as the dozen examples to be found on Obama’s own website? Not exactly. Playing the role of the conservative is liberal Democrat Steve Cohen, who represents a majority minority district in Memphis, endorsed Obama before Super Tuesday, introduced the resolution formally apologizing for slavery that recently passed the House, and last year tried to join the Congressional Black Caucus before being rejected on account of insufficient pigmentation. Here’s what he gets for his effort.
And one month later in September of 2008, Cohen would practice his own brand of racial demagoguery, comparing a certain modern day former community organizer to Jesus, and a then-governor of Alaska to Pontius Pilate.
Which brings us to Cohen’s latest slur. As with small government Tea Partiers being absurdly compared with totalitarian, Leviathan-welfare state-embracing Nazis, it’s equally bizarre to compare them to Woodrow Wilson’s auxiliary league and booster club.
But will rhetoric such as Cohen’s latest effort continue to ramp up to even more surreal levels between now and November?
