Time and again I give kudos to Rachel Maddow for her work, her honesty about her own life and her representation of it which does more, in my opinion, than all the gay rights marches of yesteryear one could attend. I believe all those who publicly stand up to defend the innocent other save lives. Everything, though, is important to fight this systemic true evil that courses through the life blood of our nation. The Republican Party has morphed into something unrecognizable to those who were the true respectable Republican intellects of their time. The Republican Party, now the party of hate, is infused with right wing extremists no Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Nelson Rockefeller, Gerald Ford and even the Republican idol Ronald Reagan could understand.
The rise of the Nazi Party began with a simple speech, a book, a movie, a burning, a purge but it ended with the slaughter, the purging and the burning of millions. It is why I make the comparison between its rise and the rise of our own disloyal opposition. In truth, this Republican Party of hate includes in its ranks the most extreme right wing virulence that party has ever known which is too close for comfort to the appellation of Nazi for me.
