Minnesota State Legislator Email Compares Unions With Hitler, Castro

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

castro on my mindTaking the peg up a notch in Scott-Walker-style ire toward constituents, Minnesota State Rep. Tom Hackbarth (R-Cedar) did not like an email he got from a unionized constituent asking him not to vote for massive budget cuts that would affect Minnesota families. So he dashed off a reply letter containing an illiterate revisionist history lesson of sorts demanding to both know how this voter gets her propaganda and telling her that unions are communist, Hitler blamed the Jews and Castro blamed the rich people, and they both killed people. It could also have been someone using Hackbarth’s account, but the representative will not respond to anybody asking him, “what the hell was that?” The proposed budget cuts are a tense issue currently leading the state toward a government shutdown, which makes us excited to see what sort of stone cold insanity comes out of the federal budget fight later this year.

Here is the e-mail, from MinnPost:

It certainly has good, strong Teabagger cadences in it. “Anonymous teabagger chain email guy” could not have done this better himself. [MinnPost via TPM]

Well, at least he used an Oxford comma.

Oxford or Harvard comma?

tough call, I have struggled with it for years: which one is less gay?

mumbly_joe June 14, 2011 at 7:29 pm

This really needs many more thumbs, but maybe I'm just a fan of recursive jackassery.

emmelemm June 14, 2011 at 6:41 pm

Minnesota nice bears a strong resemblance to Seattle nice.

Negropolis June 15, 2011 at 3:27 am

Minnesota Nice is basically the Northern/Luthren version of Southern Hospitality.

Down the lakes here in Michigan, though, we're basically New York, and by that I mean that we'll tell you we don't like you to your face if we must. Go down to Indiana, and they fire a warning shot before they shoot you in the face to display their displeasure.

SorosBot June 14, 2011 at 4:37 pm

Hitler also blamed the communist unions for the collapse of the economy and banned them.

Also, to be fair to Castro, rich bankers and capitalists had destroyed the Cuban economy, along with their allies in the US mafia.

Maman June 14, 2011 at 4:48 pm

These repugs never do understand their political history, do they?

DaRooster June 14, 2011 at 4:51 pm

They should get some history tips from Lou Sarah…

SorosBot June 14, 2011 at 4:57 pm

They go with the history they want to have, not the history that was; thus, the diametrically opposed political philosophies of fascism and communism are the exact same thing, and they ignore how the fascists/Nazis and communists kept killing each other in wingnut land.

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 14, 2011 at 4:52 pm

Yes, but they destroyed the Economy while making profits. Who can have a problem with that (see, e.g. The Republican Party 1998-2011).

riverside68 June 14, 2011 at 5:54 pm

But it kinda, sorta, entirely was the economy of the bankers and capitalists, tax-filing or not. So it's not like they come up on a working economy, like in the US, and just trashed it for their own wildly over the top personal gain.

The Carribean has had a hard time with economics since 1492.

Well, somebody has to maintain the Minnesota crazy quotient now that Bachmann has been declared respectable.

Maman June 14, 2011 at 4:47 pm

I think it is the cold freezing their brains into kumquats.

i_AM_ready June 14, 2011 at 4:40 pm

Why did he upper-case "Union"? It's like the nuns taught us to capitalize "He" if you were referring to Jeebus. Does he think unions are God?

finallyhappy June 14, 2011 at 4:46 pm

But he didn't capitalize Jews. I willl claim that is outright anti-semitism(which is still way less crazy than his note)

SmutBoffin June 14, 2011 at 4:55 pm

In union communications, your Union gets proper noun status; bylaws, member communications and press releases about what's going on with your local, for example, will have many instances of the big-U.

Dunno why this dumbass would do it. Probably dumbassness.

genxr June 14, 2011 at 5:41 pm

So he could differentiate the Union from the Confederacy?

riverside68 June 14, 2011 at 6:02 pm

I think he tipped his hand there.

Unions are clearly an agent of Satan, only followers of Satan would capitalize His works.

OurHoboSenator June 14, 2011 at 4:41 pm

All that and he still asked for a hummer at the end.

Fox n Fiends June 14, 2011 at 4:41 pm

Nixon blamed the Jews and Reagan blamed elitist Democrats.

SorosBot June 14, 2011 at 5:03 pm

The state that gave up Al Franken; but also crazy-eyes Michele Bachmann. Some of the districts must be populated by the insane.

mumbly_joe June 14, 2011 at 6:08 pm

Honestly, though, the Franken election is basically the very moment when we should have figured what the GOP was all about this time around, and stopped even trying to compromise with them or letting them have any input in the process.

"Oh, hey, let me just keep making legal challenges long after it's clear I definitely lost the election, just to keep a duly elected Democrat from actually serving. It's not like the state I just ran for senate for really *needs* their interests represented by *two* senators, after all.

That last one was an actual argument that people tried to start using, once we got a few months in.

Negropolis June 15, 2011 at 6:09 am

People always forget about poor Amy Klobachar (sp?). You know, Minnesota's other and equally reliably liberal senator, who is boring as sin, but who is also pretty cool in her own right.

BTW, I just realized that Minnesota has two senators of the Jewish faith serving at the same time (yeah, sometimes I'm a little slow). Is that happening anywhere else at the moment or in senate history?

PristineODummy June 14, 2011 at 11:58 pm

Negropolis June 15, 2011 at 3:42 am

Hey, so long as we keep giving ridiculous margins to Democratic presidents, I'm less concerned about what we do at the state level. It's really kind of typical turnover.

Michigan had a Republican governor during the entire time of Clinton's reign, and a Democratic governor through most of Dubya's. We don't have any problem turning over the keys to the state GOP every once in awhile, but the national GOP is a whole other story. You know, kind of like New York or California.

Lest we forget, Minnesota actually elected a Democrat governor during the Red Wave of 2010. But, that was really just turnover after Pawlenty.

And his story about why he was there absolutely takes the dog biscuit. He was trying to prevent his online girlfriend (whose name he did not know, apparently) from having an abortion. Or some such bullshit. Then he claimed he didn't know he was in a PP parking lot. Or maybe he claimed that before that bit about the online girlfriend's abortion.

So, Hitler both used and blamed the Jews for destroying the German economy. Does that mean that Hitler was half right in the Representative's eyes?

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for for the Hitlers, and I said nothing, because… wait, what?

Off-Thread, but there were two huge decisions in California today involving the right of same-sex couples to Marry.

Look here…

And since what is fertilizer but a green poop joke, the Wall Street Urinal reports that fertilizer giant Scott's is high on marketing Miracle-Grow to Californians, and others, with a dope grower operator's license.

I thought it must be automatic, but apparently not, I did use it as an adjective maybe that is the difference . . .

mumbly_joe June 14, 2011 at 6:44 pm

it was most likely past tense, not present tense. I think the filter is a little touchy that way. Incidentally, IIRC, I also had a post get insta-zapped for using abbreviated form of "triginometried", but I want this one to go through, so I won't test it right now.

I feel sorry for all of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, Texas, Maine, Arizona and Mississippi these days. How on earth did many of the politicians in these states get elected to office? All of these moron far-right teabagger wingnuts should be recalled or impeached, effective immediately.

ChessieNefercat June 14, 2011 at 6:15 pm

What about Michigan? I told people Stupak, for all his idiocy over the health insurance reform vote, should not be hounded out of office, because up here we'd be sure to get a bagger to replace him and that is exactly what happened. Stupak generally avoided committees, etc., where he would be involved in abortion issues and was reasonably effective where he did serve.

Anyway, we are working on recalling Snyder.

The majority of Republican votes come from blue collar voters. Over the years I have marveled at the Republican message crafters ability to persuade these same folks that up is down and black is white. I do think the Tea Party is making the professional propagandists shvitz a little. It’s going to be a little difficult to tell yourself he means the other guy when he is calling you Hitler in a letter.
