Liberal Daily Kos compares NRA meeting to Nazi rally

The effort to marginalize and demonize anyone who supports the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms continues, as the far left-wing Daily Kos compared the recent NRA meeting in Indianapolis to a Nazi rally, Newsbusters reported Tuesday.

"Wayne LaPierre and Sarah Palin at the National Rifle Association is what an American Nazi Party rally would sound like if Germany had won the war," wrote featured blogger "Hunter." "The flag, the cross, the obsession over the danger posed to the ruling class by violent minorities and the warning that arming yourself to the teeth in order to prevent the demise of the very nation at the hands of those violent minorities, the petty mocking of the rule of law and mocking of the quaint sensibilities of those who would not commit crimes against the nation's enemies."

"Hunter" went on to proclaim there's "nothing Godwin about" his outlandish statement, referring to the maxim by lawyer-writer Mike Godwin, who observed that online discussions eventually end up with comparisons to Hitler or Nazism.

"Although deliberately framed as if it were a law of nature or of mathematics, its purpose has always been rhetorical and pedagogical: I wanted folks who glibly compared someone else to Hitler or to Nazis to think a bit harder about the Holocaust," Godwin wrote.

It's not the first time anti-gun liberals have compared the NRA to Nazis, as we have reported several times in the past. After President Obama declared war on the NRA in January 2013, CBS' Bob Schieffer compared the president's conflict with the NRA to the war against Nazi Germany. In March 2013, MSNBC's Chris Matthews compared the NRA to Nazis while flubbing a reference to the movie "Casablanca."

MSNBC's Martin Bashir also compared the NRA to Hitler. Bashir later left the network after suggesting someone defecate in Sarah Palin's mouth.

It's highly doubtful that "Hunter" or anyone else making the reference was concerned about the Holocaust. Since the tragic Newtown shooting, liberals have gone berserk trying to foment violence against those who support the Second Amendment, going so far as to call for the death of those who support gun ownership.

"Hunter," however, wasn't finished. After making the obligatory reference to Cliven Bundy, Sean Hannity and those who support Bundy, he implied that gun-rights supporters "might be enemies of the nation."

It's almost enough to make one believe that liberals really do want a second, bloody civil war in America.
