Alan Grayson unwittingly takes Hitler's position...
GLENN: And then we have Alan Grayson. Alan Grayson now, I'm not sure. I want you to hear this and then we have to have a little discussion on what exactly is the point that he's trying to make here. Listen to the statement when he's talking about tea partygoers.
VOICE: It's crazy, and they are suggesting that this is the Republicans are defending themselves by saying this is happening on both sides. This is not happening on both sides.
GRAYSON: Well, I think that's what they said about the burning of the Reichstag, too, if I recall correctly.
GLENN: Okay. Now, hang on.
PAT: Now, this is a little confusing.
STU: Wait a minute.
GLENN: Hold on. What, Stu?
STU: Can you Claire
GLENN: The Reichstag?
STU: I'm sure he doesn't mean the Reichstag I'm thinking of because the one
GLENN: The Berlin, yeah.
STU: Right. Because aren't they making a complaint about people using Nazi imagery at tea parties?
GLENN: Oh, no, it's so much deeper than that. Sure, sure. Yes, we do say that you can't use Nazi imagery.
STU: It's not like the Reichstag mall, I don't know about it?
GLENN: No, this is the Nazi Germany Reichstag.
STU: The big one.
GLENN: Yes. Now, here's my problem. First of all, there's that obvious
STU: Maybe someone should point it out.
GLENN: Maybe you shouldn't say people are calling us Nazis and they are doing it just like the Nazis did. Maybe you shouldn't do that. Okay, I give you that. The other part of that is I'm not sure if he is now defending Adolf Hitler because the story was that both sides are engaging in this, meaning the communists were, Hitler blamed the communists for doing it. The communists and many Germans blamed the Nazis for doing it because the Nazis needed an emergency to be able to seize power and execute all the communists. Got it? So when he says no, you know, sure, of course they are saying both sides are doing it, didn't they say that about the Reichstag, too? That's Hitler's position. I just want you to know that Hitler was the one that said, let's not we're not doing that on both sides, no. It's just the bad communists, not us good Nazis.
PAT: When you break it down, it's almost a dumber statement than the tipping over of Guam.
