Ralph Nader took a stroll from gadfly status to full-blown moonbat in a speech given at a conference titled, “The Muslim Vote in 2004”. In pandering to the Muslims, Nader asserted that all of the ills of Washington could be traced to one source:
“What has been happening over the years is a predictable routine of foreign visitation from the head of the Israeli government. The Israeli puppeteer travels to Washington. The Israeli puppeteer meets with the puppet in the White House, and then moves down Pennsylvania Avenue, and meets with the puppets in Congress. And then takes back billions of taxpayer dollars. It is time for the Washington puppet show to be replaced by the Washington peace show.”
I could almost see Nader delivering this speech. “The [cough cough] Israeli puppeteer …” The Democrats should love this. After making a number of bogus allegations of Nazihood towards the Bush administration, suddenly a champion of the people reveals himself as a raving anti-Semite. How many of them will stand up and call Nader a brownshirt? Don’t hold your breath; while attacking Nader might convince a few of his supporters to bolt, likely it will only annoy leftists who already hate Israel and drive them further into Nader’s camp.
Besides, as with the boy who cried “wolf” once too often, we’ve heard so many Nazi allegations this election cycle that the discovery of a truly foul example will most likely be overlooked until it’s too late. (via Memeorandum)
