Going After ACORN Is Like Rounding Up The Jews Or Something

The blogs at the Huffington Post are full of silly people writing whatever idiocy pops into their heads but one Peter Dreier takes the cake.

He adopts the format of the famous "First They Came..." poem to illustrate how dangerous Republicans and various conservative, or at least people he thinks are conservatives, are (safe link).

First Big Business, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Lou Dobbs, the Religious Right, the Wall Street Journal, Mitch McConnell, and Karl Rove came for ACORN, and the Democrats did not speak out -- because they were not ACORN.

Then they came for SEIU, and the Democrats did not speak out -- because they were not SEIU.

Then they came for the Apollo Alliance, and the Democrats did not speak out -- because they were not the Apollo Alliance.

Then they came for the Center for American Progress, and the Democrats did not speak out -- because they were not the Center for American Program.

Then they came for the Sierra Club, and the Democrats did not speak out -- because they were not the Sierra Club.

And so on until there's no one left to speak for the Democrats.

Put aside the Sun rising in the East aspect of a liberal comparing conservatives to National Socialists (we all know it's only conservatives who call liberals Nazis) for a moment.

The truly funny part is, apparently in Dreier's world the Democrats don't actually have a filibuster proof majority in the Senate (they do) or an overwhelming majority in the House (they do) or the presidency (again...).

Allow me to be presumptuous enough to point out to Mr. Dreier that the various defunding bills in Congress can only pass with Democratic votes (and they did with overwhelming Democratic support).

If liberals are this scared now, they are really going to hate the 2010 elections.

Oh and Mr. Dreier?


Scared you, didn't I?
