Liberal Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas: Conservatives, NRA, Nazis ‘one and the same’

Reaching what the Independent Journal Review called “the most ridiculous of ridiculous lows,” Markos Moulitsas, the liberal founder of the far-left Daily Kos, did his part to foment violence against conservatives by falsely claiming that all conservatives and NRA members are Nazis.

“NRA and American conservatives/Nazis are one and the same,” he tweeted on Sunday.

The IJR added:

Recently, reporters from The New York Times and The Washington Post freaked out over an ad starring NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch. The kicker was that they were upset over something she never said.

Branding everyone you don’t agree with a Nazi certainly isn’t new for American leftists, but this is a stretch, even for gun haters.

Many on Twitter didn’t appreciate Moulitsas’ despicable smear.


Of course.  Because to the Borg-like collective known as the modern left, everyone who doesn’t march in lock step with liberals is literally Hitler.


Of course.


Good question.

Worse yet, he doesn’t care.


One person posted an Antifa poster revealing the racist and anti-Semitic nature of the far-left group:


It certainly ranks up there as one of the dumbest we’ve seen in a while.  At least he didn’t threaten to call police on non-followers who retweet him.

The IJR further said:

While embracing and number groups and causes who are on the wrong side of the law, the American anti-gun left is determined to portray NRA members as criminals. It is all part of a concerted effort to delegitimize the Second Amendment.

It is also a by-product of the fact progressives love keeping themselves in ideologically homogenous bubbles. Demonization of people they differ with on issues comes naturally to them because they have almost no reality-based frame of reference.

In their minds, the horrible things they say about conservatives — especially gun owners — are true because they haven’t spent more than seven minutes in real life with one since they became political.

“The next time a tragedy occurs in the United States it will be hysteria-mongers like Moulitsas who immediately decry ‘harmful rhetoric’ or blather on about the ‘tone’ of politics in the country,” Stephen Kruiser wrote.

Twitchy noted:

As Ben Shapiro eloquently pointed out in a series of tweets Sunday morning, those who perpetrated the attack in Charlottesville, Va. are part of a movement that OPPOSES conservatism and everything it stands for.

Not that anyone would expect a founder of the Daily Kos/Vox to have the ability to logically think that through.

Interesting enough, a post at Instapundit observed that two other founders of Vox have each written good things about the Nazis:

Ezra Klein, for example, wrote:

Not everything the Nazis touched was bad. Hitler was a vegetarian. Volkswagen is a perfectly good car company. Universal health care is a perfectly good idea. Indeed, the Nazis actually did a pretty good job increasing economic growth and improving standards of living (they were, many think, the first Keynesians, adopting the strategy even before Keynes had come up with it), pushing Germany out of a depression and back into expansion. Unfortunately, they also set out to conquer Europe and exterminate the Jews. People shouldn’t do that.

Matthew Yglesias also sent out a tweet saying that “Nazis had a lot of good ideas.” The tweet has been deleted, but a screenshot can be seen here.

But don’t hold your breath waiting for Moulitsas to condemn that…
