Meet the Republican Party: Rick Barber edition
Rick Barber, a Republican candidate for the House of Representatives in Alabama, likens paying income taxes to slavery and the Holocaust. Barber's commercial flashes footage of the iron gate at Auschwitz with its notorious "Arbeit Macht Frei"
If the Republican Party can't tell the difference between taxation decided upon by a legislature that was democratically elected and slavery (or the Holocaust) then I don't see a lot of hope for the Republican Party.
Where's the outrage? Rick Barber is a nut. Just look him in the eyes: the man is certifiably insane. Where are the so-called responsible Republicans telling Barber to tone down his message of hate and violence?
Hey, Eric Cantor! Do you think that the federal income tax is just like Auschwitz?
Teacherken has some more thoughts at Blue Virginia in his diary "Unhinged by the Right."
