"Every time I use those analogies, I am doing it with a concrete footnoted historical context. When people like Glenn Beck throw around the word Nazi without taking that kind of care, they are engaging in demagoguery. There’s an important difference."
But the majority of the TP rhetoric is directed at taxes and government spending/program expansion, not at miltary tribunals, the closing of Guantanamo, and the renewal of the patriot act, the stuff that Wolf’s “priveleged” and “whining” liberals like myself are upset about.
