NRP correspondent Dina Temple-Raston, qouted as saying:


Partial transcript: "The thinking, as we have been reporting, is that this is a domestic, extremist attack and officials are leaning that way largely because of the timing of the attack. April is a big month for anti-government and right-wing individuals. There's the Columbine anniversary, there's Hitler's birthday, there's the Oklahoma City bombing, the assault on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco."


Once again, the liberal media is moving forward with the theory that right wing extremists planted the bombs. Even better, NPR is funded through tax dollars. Paying for our own brainwashing liberal media style...

It's not a far cry considering that right wing types sometimes spend their time online talking about violently executing politicians.


Liberals don't do it as much anymore.

I should also add, the fact that somehow right wingers now celebrate Hitler's birthday... when did this happen? Was there a memo at the RNC? Did I miss a mailing?

I didn't realize Columbine was on Hitler's birthday, but they were both on the 20th. Surely if they were aiming at that they could have blown something up on the 20th?

Godwin's law. "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."

We know this applies to real life as well, especially in politics. It's far more prevalent in politics, as HItler is the goto dictator to compare people to. He's frequently brought up when one side has nothing of value to say, so they throw his name in their to imply a likeness to Hitler and/or Nazism.

That argument is the last bastion of a political fool who wants to sound wise.

I had never heard of that before... brilliant!!

For the record, NPR, not I, made said comparison.

Because Hitler is the ultimate fallguy.


Democrat? Compare the Republicans to Hitler/Nazi's because of racism, war politics and others.

Republican? Compare the Democrats to Nazis because of socialism.
