I have been called an alarmist when I saw traces of Nazism in the speeches and politics of the Tea Party and the Right Wing republican conservatives.
When I pointed out how misogyny and the hatred of LGBT folks was a warning of something far more dangerous.
The worship of military might, a policy of National Socialism where the government supports the rich elites and enslaves the working people.
When I have pointed out the racism that treats African Americans as no more than bodies to be ground up by the prison industrial complex.
How the racists belittle the undocumented workers from Latin America who toil so hard for so little so Americans can live in nice houses, with manicured lawns and eat cheap food.
I have read the books warning of the concepts behind Dominionism, the dreams of Raptures, Apocalypses and Armageddons how in the end the Christo-Nazis will purge the world in preparation for the “Second Coming” how all but 50,000 Jews will perish in a pool of fire and blood with the final fifty thousand converting to Christianity. I have even been invited to join just such a church.
People laugh at the Republicans who actually come out and say such things, as though it isn’t a real threat.
As though it could never happen here even though the Germans thought the same thing.
But there is one thing people should know about the Nazis of the right wing and that is this: They always get around to final solutions that involve murdering all the Jews.

Jews Must Be Converted: FRC Vice President

Bad news for Eric Cantor. He’s speaking tomorrow at the Values Voter Summit, but he’s apparently still going to hell. Let me explain.
Jerry Boykin is the Executive Vice President of the Family Research Council and Tony Perkins’ right-hand man. FRC is hosting the far right conference that the House Majority Leader, who is Jewish, plans to address tomorrow.
Boykin, much like Bryan Fischer, has a penchant for saying exactly what’s on his mind – things which others know not to say, even when they’re thinking the same thing. While you may know Boykin from his prolific Muslim-bashing, he also has some interesting things to say about Jews.
In a 2009 speech on “Why We Must Stand with Israel,” Boykin spoke out against pastors who say that “the Jews don’t have to come to know Jesus,” complaining that those pastors were “destroying the efforts” to lead Jews to Christ:
The Great Lie: Hitler was not a leftist. the First people he imprisoned and murdered were Socialists and Union leaders. Hitler was a conservative Christion who was right in line with the militarism and racism that categorizes the modern Republican Party.
Last year, Boykin said that “one of the most disgusting things I hear is for people to call Hitler the extreme Right” because he was “an extraordinarily off the scale leftist.” He then lamented that “many Jews in America, for example, can’t identify with the Republican Party because they’re called the party of the Right, when in fact nothing could be further from the truth.”
Boykin also said that President Obama is creating a Hitler-sytle Brownshirt army to force Marxism on America. And in 2003, then-Lt. Gen. Boykin said that the U.S. was fighting a war “in the name of Jesus,” prompting a rebuke from the ADL and President Bush.
To be sure, the Religious Right hasn’t always had the best relations with American Jews. Jerry Falwell sparked a controversy in 1980 when he said that God “does not hear the prayers of unredeemed Gentiles or Jews.” He was speaking at a press conference in defense of the president of the Southern Baptist Convention, who had proclaimed that “God Almighty does not hear the prayer of a Jew.”
More recently, however, Religious Right leaders have been careful to stress Judeo-Christian values and avoid explicit attacks. Boykin, however, doesn’t have any use for such niceties.
Yet Boykin was able to meet recently with Mitt Romney, and he has three speaking slots during the conference. He’s even leading a panel on Israel with his good friend Kamal Saleem. Saleem, who is considered to be a fraud, describes himself as a former terrorist who “completed his first bloody terror mission into Israel for the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) at the age of seven.”
All of this makes me wonder if Cantor’s folks did their homework before agreeing to speak tomorrow. Perhaps something will come up, and he’ll have to decline FRC’s invitation, much like Ann Romney and Cardinal Dolan have done. We’ll find out tomorrow.
