Resurrecting the speeches of fiendish politicians is the best thing about the Internet, and today we have a new floating spirit in the form of a speech Rick Santorum gave on the Senate floor in 2005 during the Democrats’ attempt to filibuster President Bush’s judicial appointments. The surly fellow compared his friends across the aisle to Hitler. But not to fear, he’s only one of FOUR current or recently dropped-out Republican presidential candidates to bring up the Nazi empire when speaking about fairly harmless people standing in the way of their glory.

Santorum described the efforts of certain Democrats thusly:

Remarkable…remarkable hubris. I mean imagine, the rule has been in place for 214 years that this is the way we confirm judges. Broken by the other side two years ago. And the audacity of some of the other members to stand up and say, how dare you break this rule? It’s the equivalent of Adolf Hitler in 1942: ‘I’m in Paris. How dare you invade me? How dare you bomb my city? It’s mine.’

It is really curious that this is the kind of thing that Santorum’s brain would spontaneously reach for. Of course, just the other week, ahead of the Iowa caucus, Rick Perry said a similar thing about the fight against President Obama in a speech to his volunteers. In the process, he crumpled up King George III and Adolf Hitler into the same ball of evil.

This election is about stopping a president of the United States and his administration that is abusing the Constitution of this country, that is putting America on a track to bankruptcy. It is a powerful moment in Americans’ history, and you are on the front lines. This is Concord. This is Omaha Beach. This is going up the hill realizing that the battle is worth winning.

Then there was Newt Gingrich’s comment in a debate last June in which he compared Muslims to Nazis. What happens to people during these moments? Well, discussing loyalty in the previous sentences before he said the word “Nazi,” Gingrich received some applause, which probably gave this huge-headed fool the confidence it takes to say something so close-minded.

Bachmann? Oh, she just followed up a declaration that she doesn’t hate Muslims by comparing the threat of — Muslims, basically — to the threat of Nazi Germany.

Now we’re just waiting on Ron Paul, the most isolationist of all, to step into the ring. [Buzzfeed]
