Hey now, this is kind of actually wild and amazing.  Someone apparently woke ole' half-conscious Wolf Blitzer and handed him some actually news-like facts to read on the TV and provide legitimate background and context to something happening today.

For some reason Wolf was considerably more prepared for this discussion than he was for his rather short-lived embarrasing stint on Jeopardy.

In this case, Wolf discusses here the reality what it means or Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) to go around campaigning with Ted Nugent who in his most recent bought of mouth diarrhea called the current sitting President of the United States a "subhuman mongrel" - which, as it turns out, happens to be the exact same phrase used by the Nazi to delegitimize the humanity of Jews.

Hmm. Coincidence?

Speaking with Wayne Slater of the Dallas Morning News, Blitzer pointed out, “That’s what the Nazis called Jews to justify the genocide of the Jewish community.”

“They called them ‘untermenschen,’ subhuman mongrels, if you read some of the literature that the Nazis put out there, there is a long history of that specific phrase he used involving the President of the United States.

Slater responded that it was a phrase that is “deeply offensive, to some voters, and not just Democratic voters, but other voters,” before adding “might that phrase be a kind of dog whistle, and code to exactly some of the voters that Greg Abbott wants?”

Wow, that's really mighty white of you there Wayne to admit the "other voters" who might happen to "not be democrats" just might be offended at the idea of calling the President a Fucking Mutt.

Yes, it's a Dog Whistle Wayne. In fact, it's kind of a Dog Foghorn, damn near all of us can hear it.

But actually, I think he's giving them far too much credit.  I mean, "subhuman mongrel" isn't even close to the worse thing that Nugent has said lately.  I mean, going over and above when he suggested that the President and Attorney General should "have their heads cut off" - yeah, right metaphorically of course - before the 2012 Election, here are few choice examples of some his more, colorful, phrases in describing the President.

“I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America,” Nugent continued. “I think America will be America again when Barack Obama, [Attorney General] Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, [Sen.] Dick Durbin, [former New York City Mayor] Michael Bloomberg and all of the liberal Democrats are in jail facing the just due punishment that their treasonous acts are clearly apparent.”
Treasonous acts?  Like what - not getting a Background Check Law passed? That would be the Background Check Requirement that the NRA used to Endorse too.

Oh yeah, and this...

The Motor City Madman added that his rhetoric was less “inflammatory” than the so-called scandal over the 2011 terrorist attacks at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

“What difference does that make?” he asked. “Not to a chimpanzee or Hillary Clinton, I guess it doesn’t matter.”

Sigh. So now the President is a chimpanzee? Ugh.

Then again, it really doesn't matter what Ted says. Anyone who listens to him knows he's all mouth and no brain.  And worse, they love him for it.  The more lunatic shit-talking he does, the better.

Was Ted seriously rebuked after the "head-chopping" thing?  No, he got a personal invite to that year's State of the Union address.  And what about his campaigning with Abbott?  Apparently the attendance at one of his recent events challenging Wendy Davis tripled when it was announced that Nugent would appear.

And that right there is the thing, that's the REAL GOP.  Ted Nugent, Michael Dunn and Ted "KristallNacht" Perkins, Ben Carson, Roy "Having Healthcare Makes You Lazy" Blunt and Gary "No Niggers or Fags" James are not a set of bugs within the GOP Electorate - they are Primary Features.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
