The irony is decidedly painful in an anonymously written Nov. 4 WorldNetDaily article:
In a perspective that certainly should alarm many Americans, a leading Democrat in Congress is characterizing Republicans as Nazis.
Recall that back in the days during World War II, many civilized people, when confronted with someone who actually was a Nazi, felt the urge to assassinate.
This was logical, based on the knowledge we now have of the millions of horrific deaths imposed by those of that political persuasion. In fact, there were multiple plots developed that included the death of Adolf Hitler.
But now it is House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., who is condemning Republicans for their "demonization" of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose husband recently was attacked in their San Francisco home under strange circumstances.
According to Fox News, Clyburn said that's what happens in a country that follows "Germany in the early '30s."
Charged Clyburn, "This country is on track to repeat what happened in Germany when it was the greatest democracy going, when it elected a chancellor that then co-opted the media. This past president called the press the enemy of the people. That is a bunch of crap. And that is what's going on in this country."
He essentially echoed what Joe Biden had said a day earlier, when he appeared to point his finger at the GOP for the attack on Paul Pelosi, blaming the political party for violence, voter intimidation and more.
Clyburn blasted the GOP's "demonization" of Nancy Pelosi, yet didn't express any condemnation of Biden's frequent vilification of what he calls "ultra-MAGA Republicans," who support Trump.
We don't recall WND being concerned about peddling an "alarming" perspective when it spent Barack Obama's presidency repeatedly likening him to Nazis, lending legitimacy to the smear by parading people like Hilmar von Campe and Anita Dittman around to parrot it by citing their experience growing up in Nazi Germany to lend it legitimacy.
WND has never apologized for likening Obama to various Nazis, which means it really should stop the whining when the shoe is on the other foot.
