Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs split from the Islamophobia crowd several years ago and since then he has been calling them out for their ties to racist and fascist groups.
In polite society, it's considered rude to print photos of minor politicians hugging Klansmen and actual neonazis on stage, but Charles tracks them down. And the anti-immigration crowd attracts a lot of fringe figures with racist ties and criminal records who somehow have excellent access to the fringe of the GOP.
Charles got a video of Ken Crow (expresident of Tea Party of America) speaking on Capitol Hill to an audience that include members of congress.
From those incredible blood lines of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington and John Smith. And all these great Americans, Martin Luther King. These great Americans who built this country. You came from them. And the unique thing about being from that part of the world, when you learn about breeding, you learn that you cannot breed Secretariat to a donkey and expect to win the Kentucky Derby. You guys have incredible DNA and don’t forget it.Yes, you can here the photographer gasp when this is said, The audience, to their credit, hardly makes a sound.
It's easy to connect statements about the government preserving white America and the lower intelligence of immigrants right back to Mein Kampf and probably Henry Ford's wildly racist "The Dearborn Independent" before that. As Charles notes
Not trying to go Godwin, but that’s exactly what it is.How Godwin is it? Jump the orange Blutfahne to see!
You know, the Tea Party loves to talk about the people who are the real producers. Who would that be? Spoiler alert - it's white people. As Crow puts it, it's in you "incredible DNA." Hitler says it's "race" and "blood:"
Everything we admire on this earth today-science and art, technology and inventions-is only the creative product of a few peoples and originally perhaps of one race. On them depends the existence of this whole culture. If they perish, the beauty of this earth will sink into the grave with them.....True genius is always inborn and never cultivated, let alone learned. As already emphasized, this applies not only to the individual man but also to the race. Creatively active peoples always have a fundamental creative gift, even if it should not be recognizable to the eyes of superficial observers. -Mein KampfEven though there's a lot of howlingly silly and offensive stuff in this section of Mein Kampf ("Nation and Race"), note the smooth appeal of that last line about having an unrecognized fundamental gift. Wow, that's Harry Potter, Luke Skywalker, Cinderella, yadda yadda yadda. Hitler really appeals to the underachievers by telling them they are unappreciated geniuses! Harry Potter is all innocent fun until someone uses this sort of story the wrong way.
But of course, Hitler did not know about Dioxyribo Nucleic Acid, he knew about blood, pure Aryan blood. And like Crow, Hitler knew not to mix blood.
Any crossing of two beings not at exactly the same level produces a medium between the level of the two parents. This means: the offspring will probably stand higher than the racially lower parent, but not as high as the higher one. Consequently, it will later succumb in the struggle against the higher level. Such mating is contrary to the will of Nature for a higher breeding of all life. The precondition for this does not lie in associating superior and inferior, but in the total victory of the former....It is really quite a hoot to read Hitler say that hybrids are prone to disease when we go to such lengths to breed hybrid plants and animals specifically to improve disease resistance!
No more than Nature desires the mating of weaker with stronger individuals, even less does she desire the blending of a higher with a lower race, since, if she did, her whole work of higher breeding, over perhaps hundreds of thousands of years, night be ruined with one blow...
Historical experience offers countless proofs of this. It shows with terrifying clarity that in every mingling of Aryan blood with that of lower peoples the result was the end of the cultured people. -Mein Kampf
But here's an odd little shout-out to America. Keep in mind that Hitler was a personal friend of Henry Ford, and that Adolph wanted a pact with England. Mostly he violently hated France and the Jews.
North America, whose population consists in by far the largest part of Germanic elements who mixed but little with the lower colored peoples, shows a different humanity and culture from Central and South America, where the predominantly Latin immigrants often mixed with the aborigines on a large scale. By this one example, we can clearly and distinctly recognize the effect of racial mixture. The Germanic inhabitant of the American continent, who has remained racially pure and unmixed, rose to be master of the continent; he will remain the master as long as he does not fall a victim to defilement of the blood. -Mein KampfPresumably Hitler would approve of the German-American Koch family, eh?
