      ushering in hitler as leader of germany.

      I read a lot of history and what's going on in the goper party right now has gone on before. the sooner we recognize it, the better we will be prepared to fight them. one could even say that Rush is their "leader". this american purity that is being called for should be carefully examined and understood. with no support or proof, people are being called communists, socialists, marxists, muslims, etc. Democrats are being systematically dehumanized. And they have been doing this for many, many years now. And just to make myself clear, we had Newt Gingrich just the other day saying the President of the United States is not a "real president". What should we make of that? About 25% of the US population believes what Newt said to be true. When he wins again in November, they are not going to go into a coma, like I did when Kerry lost. Oh no. These people are going to do something about it. They are sincerely delusional and are not going to be able to accept another loss.

      Check out the freeper site or red state. These people really believe the majority is on their side and that we here at dkos are the delusional ones. they think WE are the ones living in Bizarro world. It's crazy enough to question yourself. I have to take a bath in Pro Publica and The Christian Science Monitor to make sure that WE are not the ones in Bizzaro World. It's weird to read some of the stuff and be reminded of things people were saying in pre 1938 Germany.

        your choice of analogy, since it sounds more like freepers would suggest the Obama Administration might be secretly planning.

          can sometimes lead to assumptions on my part that are greatly erroneous.

          I have read some really disturbing things over there and more often than not there is talk about taking matters into their own hands, or if people are too stupid to see what is going on then they will have to show them etc. It's creepy in it's parallels. And there is an awful lot of praise for Rush and how Rush really knows what is going on and how Rush tells the truth. They even think Faux News is lying to them. Erick E. can't be trusted anymore and on and on it goes. Everyone is an enemy.

          Please, go take a look. It will make an impact just how disturbed these people are. And when they are that far out, it's not unusual for people like us to ignore them. But 25% of them are going to freak out come November. And I wouldn't trust a single one of them. Not a freeper or red stater. Something is wrong with those people.

            I've kept an eye on that side since the nineties, and they are very scary, no doubt.  I've watched their insanity lead to murder already and it will get worse.

              there at all. but then people would post their comments here and i'd think they were funny. so I started going to take a look for the fun of it. And for a while it was funny. then it started getting dark. I think during the primaries it was really a cesspool. Now though. Oh man. I went to read about the polls and people were just beside themselves. Lots of "no way are those polls right and here's why", and all sorts of weird things. It's rancid now. And like I said, there's not a throwing the towel in vibe going on over there.

              Over here we have the mega pie fights when we are losing.  over there, they talk about what they are going to do afterwards and none of it involves voting...

              you really don't see the parallels? it's totally okay if you don't. At the very least it will make me feel better. but it does spook me, what i read on those sites. at the same time I can't help but go look because I feel the need to know what they are up to.

                was actually murdered by one of their nutjobs (church shooting aimed at "liberals"), I started taking them seriously, but also realized they aren't at all organized.

                  surprised. There has been a long history of the church no longer being a safe haven for people. And while I am not much of an attendee, I still respect that it should be a safe haven for people of faith to come together and support each other. I don't think the gopers have that same mentality. Not when they are on a "mission". No place is sacred to them.

                  And you are right, they are disorganized. But with their unwavered support of Rush, I feel they can be quickly rounded up into a nice little tribe of hate.
