While we wait for the evening’s events to kick off, I thought I would share a fresh dispatch from crazytown.
This one comes from old Roscoe Bartlett of Maryland who told an audience that Federal involvement in student loans will take us down the path Germany followed in the 1930s to Hitler.
Why? Well that requires one to leave all reality and embrace a little Wingnut math and crazytown logic. According to Roscoe, he could not find “education” in his narrow reading of the Constitution, nor could he find any way that the Federal government could have any role in education in the text. Therefore, the student loan program–regardless of the intentions–will lead to a Holocaust:
“Not that it’s not a good idea to give students loans, it certainly is a good idea to give them loans,” Bartlett said. “But if you can ignore the Constitution to do something good today, tomorrow you will be ignoring the Constitution to do something bad. You could. There are more people in our, in America today of German ancestry than any other [inaudible]. The Holocaust that occurred in Germany — how in the heck could that happen? And when you start down the wrong road, it can be a very slippery slope.”
Roscoe’s crazy filters are switched to ‘off’ and that has him marching in step with his Wingnut brethren Only in their reality-free world could you make the case that Federal Student Loans are the first step down the slippery slope to mass murder and genocide–that plus black helicopters, armed Social Security shock troops and the Kenyan usurper in the white man’s house.
Thanks to redistricting in Maryland, Roscoe is facing his first competitive campaign and people are paying attention to the crazy things he says. We only need 25 seats to take back the House and Roscoe will be one of them.
I’m fired up and ready to go. Let’s clean House, hold onto the Senate and Re-Elect the President!
