Baker insisted that it was "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who first put Nazi comparisons into play by accusing the opponents of 'carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care,'" and that Limbaugh was merely "reacting" to it with a screed likening Obama and Democrats to Nazis.

Similarly, an Aug. 10 MRC item by Rich Noyes complained that Limbaugh's Nazi rant was taken "out-of-context" by NBC, which did not mention that said rant "was part of a lengthy reaction to scornful statements by Pelosi smearing anti-ObamaCare protesters at town hall meetings." Noyes later asserted that "Pelosi had triggered the exchange with such a venomous charge." But Noyes, like Baker, failed to acknowledge that Pelosi's claim is true.
