The Bomb Iran lobby

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism at 2:49 pm by George Smith

If they could personally touch off a war with Iran before the election, they would.

From the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy, and the anti-shariah law/get Huma Abedin crew, this — timed for Netanyahu’s “red line” speech at the UN.

It’s useful to see how the Cult is doing its best to start another war in the Middle East.

Times are hard for the Cult of EMP Crazy. It’s old Congressional main man, Republican Roscoe Bartlett, may lose his House re-election bid in November.

Bartlett, whose career cause has been one warning about electromagnetic pulse doom after another and getting ignored or having his legislation on it wiped off bills by other more powerful pols in his own party, stepped in it earlier this month at a town meeting in his district.

From the WaPost:

“I’m for student loans. I want kids to have an education,” Bartlett responded. But he explained that he had read through the Constitution carefully and could find no evidence “that the federal government should be involved in education.” Then Bartlett expanded on that point (at the 3:35 mark in the clip above, which was passed along by a Democrat).

“Not that it’s not a good idea to give students loans; it certainly is a good idea to give them loans,” Bartlett said. “But if you can ignore the Constitution to do something good today, tomorrow you will be ignoring the Constitution to do something bad. You could. There are more people in our, in America today of German ancestry than any other [inaudible]. The Holocaust that occurred in Germany — how in the heck could that happen? And when you start down the wrong road, it can be a very slippery slope.”

Loosely comparing the granting of student loans to American German citizens, Hitler and the terror that led to the Holocaust in Nazi Germany probably lost him a few votes. If anyone was paying attention.

Someone should probably purchase Bartlett an old used copy of William L. Shirer’s The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.

It is a thick book but Roscoe Bartlett will have time to read it when he continues prepping for the coming collapse after the election. The book makes it hard to square the alleged problem of more school loans with, say, the burning of the Reichstag, the murder and imprisonment of thousands of the Nazi Party’s enemies, and the bestial reduction of German Jews to non-citizen “objects” while the Fuhrer was taking dictatorial power in the final days of Weimar Germany.

The Washington Post may have unintentionally written Bartlett’s political obituary, in August, here.

The article was a laundry list of right-wing survivalist/electromagnetic pulse doom crazy: “The idea that the end of the world is near, and that people will be judged, is a key tenet of [Roscoe Bartlett’s] Adventist beliefs.”
