Seriously, do wingnuts have any concept of Nazism? Do they have anything else in their head to compare the things they don’t like to other than Hitler? Todd Starnes made that comparison while discussing the Supreme Court’s ruling on legislative prayer.
“Always a good day when the anti-Christian folks get smacked down by the Supreme Court,” Starnes quipped.
The Fox News outrage specialist said he wasn’t “into the legalese” of the decision, but worried that the fact that the ruling was limited to only “short prayers” meant that there would be future court cases.
Of course he isn’t “into the legalese,” he’s too dumb to understand it. He’s a polemicist, not a thinker.
He’s as ignorant of Adolf Hitler as he is of constitutional law. As Raw Story points out, here’s a prayer Hitler offered at a rally in 1942:
“Let’s say the atheists are successful in removing creator out of that sentence, alright?” Starnes said. “Who do we put in there? I mean, look, the Germans tried it with Hitler. It didn’t work out very well with them. Look at what happened in Italy [with Mussolini].”
“Lord God, give us the strength that we may retain our liberty for our children and our children’s children, not only for ourselves but also for the other peoples of Europe, for this is a war which we all wage, this time, not for our German people alone, it is a war for all of Europe and with it, in the long run, for all of mankind.”
Replace “Europe” with the United States and “German people” with “American people” and Starnes would be cheering on that prayer.
