Harry Reid: Energy companies use “the old Hitler lie”

HITLER!

He accused the coal industry of using “the old Hitler lie — when you say things long enough people start believing them.”

The comparison of the coal industry to Nazis came before his keynote speech, which began and ended with references to “the Jewish sages of yesteryear.”

Now, he’s not saying that the coal industry are Nazis, you understand. He’s just saying they’re using Hitler’s tactics.

Captain Ed has video of more of Reid’s address, though not the Hitler part. He’s just whining about how global warming is putting carbon in that atmosphere and making us all sick and changing our world.

Which reminds me of a link-worthy entry at Ace’s yesterday. Liberals always claim that even if we start drilling for more oil today, we won’t see the benefits from that exploration for years so we shouldn’t try.

Instead, exactly as Harry Reid is advocating in that clip, they’re all for putting more money into alternative energy products, much of which will never pay off and if it does, we won’t see the benefits for several years.

Well, correction–we won’t see any energy benefits for several years. The Democrats get immediate political benefits, getting to stand up bravely to those shadowy Hitleresque overlords of Mordor Energy, Ltd. who are poisoning the Shire and spewing Carbon and Ringwraiths and Zyklon into the air.

Which is easier than standing up to Iran.
