Professor: ‘Tea Party are Like the Nazis’

An anonymous college student uploaded a video to YouTube of his professor comparing the Tea Party to the Nazis.

The student writes in the video’s description: “I began recording after he called Senator Ted Cruz a bastard for using the last name ‘Cruz’ to win the election.”

Here is what he captured his professor saying:

From ’29 to literally about 1931, the Nazis start winning seats again and they become kind of — people are voting for them again. Because then in 1931, which was really interesting, the Nazis — people are kind of tired of them. They’ve been around since 1920 — 11 years now. They’ve won seats — they’re like the Tea Party. That’s such a good example. Don’t tell anybody I said that, though — ‘the Tea Party are like the Nazis.’ But in the sense of how they politically came to power, there’s a good analogy there. That eventually people realized, ‘Oh, these Nazis, they’re a bunch of nuts — these Tea Party people, they’re a bunch of nuts.’ I mean, the analogy really is a good analogy.
