From The College Fix:
University of Wisconsin sociology Professor Sara Goldrick-Rab claims there are “terrifying” psychological similarities between Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Nazi leader and mass murderer Adolf Hitler.
In a July 1 tweet, Goldrick-Rab said: “My grandfather, a psychologist, just walked me through similarities between Walker and Hitler. There are so many-it’s terrifying.”…
Indeed, it is uncanny how much they are alike – given that Walker, just like Hitler, has worked hard his whole life, got married, has a normal family, doesn’t blame Jews for anything and is dedicated to working within our democratic republican institutions to effect change. How did we all miss the similarities?
The reality is that she’s a college professor with tenure – and Walker just signed a budget which stops tenure from being a life-long guarantee of employment no matter how stupid or lunatic you turn out to be. Naturally, Progressives are outraged by this. If you ever wondered why our institutions of higher education have become a morass of anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-civilization twaddle while also devolving into fascist enclaves where you are guilty until proven innocent, look no further than tenure. Once our Progressives got themselves set up with tenure, they could do as they pleased in higher education…and ending tenure is key to terminating the Progressive domination of higher education.
The hyperbole in the left about Walker stems from the fact that quietly, without fanfare and entirely in line with common sense backed by a majority of the people, he is devastating the left’s sources of power in the United States…which are all, bottom line, based upon getting into government or quasi-government positions and essentially using taxpayer dollars to undermine the United States. The left hates Walker with a white-hot passion because of this…and people who work themselves into such a state make mistakes. This, in and of itself, is a strong endorsement of a Walker candidacy for President – our opponents will do stupid things which will alienate LIVs.
On the other side of it, here’s a positive reason for us to go for Walker – he’s actually destroying the left. I still don’t know if it is a conscious plan which he’s just not telegraphing in advance or whether its just a desire on Walker’s part for common-sense reform. But whatever is making Walker take these actions, the actions are tailor-made to not just beat the left at the polls, but eliminate them from the political equation, in the long run. Some on th right are worried about Walker’s waffling on things like immigration reform and ethanol subsidies – but I’m starting to wonder if Walker just knows how to play the game and, once in office, just does what is right?
“…life-long guarantee of employment no matter how stupid or lunatic you turn out to be…”
I can totally understand why the professor was appalled. As she said in the article, Walker just took away her job, meaning she is either stupid or lunatic, or likely both.
On a related note, Rand Paul should never consider Scott Walker as a VP running mate. The bumper stickers for Paul/Walker will make millennials think they’re voting for a dead actor.
As long as it isn’t Bush/Trump I’m ok…
This kind of rhetoric is sure to attract independents and moderates to the Leftist POV.//sarc.
How could the Democrats possibly alienate the electorate?? Do you not realize how much they care about everyone? Well except for the unborn. And conservatives. And gun owners. And small business owners. And the rich. And capitalists. And pretty white girls who walk the piers of San Francisco.
Let’s all take a moment and reflect on the timeless stupidity of Democrats. I present to you Bill Clinton 1994:
I’d like to say just a word about the framework with North Korea that Ambassador Gallucci signed this morning. This is a good deal for the United States,” Clinton said at the press conference. “North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. South Korea and our other allies will be better protected. The entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons.
Now we all know that this agreement Clinton negotiated resulted in a peaceful and prosperous North Korea, who no longer have nuclear ambitions and are just wanting to be a part of the world community ……… oh wait.
But surely Obama’s deal with Iran will turn out differently. Right?
More work place violence:
Yeah, some guy who JUST HAPPENED to be named Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez went from one Marine recruiting office to another, murdering Marines in cold blood, but because he was a naturalized citizen it has to be classified as DOMESTIC terrorism.
But donotdonotdonotdonotdonot don’t you DARE link this to Islam!
Or to low standards for handing out citizenship like Halloween candy.
It is obviously due to lax gun control laws.
David Burge tweeted the guy’s high school yearbook photo – it says, “my name causes me to be targeted as a national security threat”, or words to that effect. As Burge pointed out, “sadly, it didn’t”.
This Hitler nonsense is so typical of Left-wing character assassination. Of course there are many characteristics that Walker and Hitler may have in common. They are both men, they may have some genetic backgrounds in common, we are always told how Hitler (bad as he was) DID like dogs and Walker might like dogs, too. Hitler loved Wagner—-maybe Walker is fond of German opera. Same height, hair or eye color, birthday?
The throwaway comment that someone found commonalities between the two, without saying what they are but implying that they are the really really bad parts about Hitler, is not only despicable, it is typical of what to expect from the slimy Left.
Politically, I think it is obvious that Hitler and Obama have a lot more in common, regarding important things, like playing to the emotions of a nation to get elected, like taking over the roles of the legislative bodies of their respective countries, like allowing their megalomania to lead their nations toward disaster…………..
Here’s a good article on the moral failings of progressives and PP:
Ironic how PP uses ultra sound to locate which part of the body to “crush”, yet screams in horror when ultra sound is a suggested procedure prior to “crushing”.
Pre-abortion ultrasounds are invasive…ultrasounds during abortion are ok…these people are complete hypocrites.
Walker has repeatedly defeated the left so they are desperate to stop him. He took on the unions, several recall attempts, defunded Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin. We could use a man with armor plated cohones who stands and delivers what he says he will.
So what did the President have to say about the senseless murders of the Marines in TN?
“a heartbreaking circumstance for these individuals who have served our country with great valor to be killed in this fashion,”
Of course that statement was couched in a longer statement celebrating Ramadan:
“Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr,” a statement from the president read.
“As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual — a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.”
This statement, and the lack of a statement in regards to Kate Steinle is quite a contrast on how the President reacted to the death of Trayvon Martin. You know, the boy who could be his son because of course they have similar skin pigmentation.
The MSM response to the Chattanooga shooting is nothing short of reality imitating art.
Spook, remember that article on socialism I sent you the other day? Here it is again as it relates to Chicago:
Since 2003 Chicago has engaged in Wall St. type financial engineering tricks to paper over its debt.

Perhaps when he leaves office Obama can return to Chicago and fix it like he has the country.
Great idea but I think Obama has already bled Chicago dry. He plans to retire in Palm Desert with the 1%.
Not a lot of fixing left to do in Chicago, after Rahm Emanuel gets done with it.
