Democrats Attempt to Link Tea Party to Nazis
A fundraising appeal from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee titled, “Danger: tea party update” begins with this warning: “At one Tea Party rally this week, mobs chanted “Waterboard Obama, Waterboard Hillary! At another, radicals waved signs with Nazi symbols.”
The e-mail concludes, “the Democratic Senate is the only thing holding back the right-wing House from implementing their radical agenda,” repeating the word “radical.” They have left themselves room to avoid a libel suit, but the implication is clear: members of the Tea Party are dangerous neo-Nazis.
The only event I could find of swastikas at a Tea Party rally happened in 2009. The DSCC email makes it sound like the event happened “this week,” but if you read it again, it merely says, “at another” rally. The Huffington Post (11/15/09) reports:
