Greenfield: CNN’s Anderson Cooper: America is Like Nazi Germany

So does that make Anderson Cooper just like Goebbels or just like one of the guys who fed grapes to Goebbels while he raved to his secretary?

CNN host Anderson Cooper said the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on torture sounded less like something America would do and more like something out of the handbook of Adolf Hitler or Pol Pot.

“It is shocking … when you read this, if you envision Nazis doing this, and I even hate to say this, if you envision the Khmer Rouge doing this … you can imagine it,” Cooper said Tuesday on “Anderson Cooper 360.” “It’s not that far removed from stuff they [Nazis] were doing.”


The Nazis murdered millions of civilians because of their last names. Americans stripped a bunch of terrorists naked and yelled at them…

    Anderson Cooper is more like an “Ernst Rohm”.

    “Rohm’s blatant, out homosexuality seems bizarre now, given the gay genocide that was to follow [ed: not really]. He talked openly about his fondness for gay bars and Turkish baths, and was known for his virility. He believed that gay people were superior to straights, and saw homosexuality as a key principle of his proposed Brave New Fascist Order. As historian Louis Snyder explains, Rohm “projected a social order in which homosexuality would be regarded as a human behaviour pattern of high repute… He flaunted his homosexuality in public and insisted his cronies do the same. He believed straight people weren’t as adept at bullying and aggression as homosexuals, so homosexuality was given a high premium in the SA.” They promoted an aggressive, hypermasculine form of homosexuality, condemning “hysterical women of both sexes”, in reference to feminine gay men.

    This belief in the superiority of homosexuality had a strong German tradition that grew up at the turn of the twentieth century around Adolf Brand, publisher of the country’s first gay magazine. You could call it ‘Queer as Volk’: they preached that gay men were the foundation of all nation-states and represented an elite, warrior caste that should rule. They venerated the ancient warrior cults of Sparta, Thebes and Athens.

    Rohm often referred to the ancient Greek tradition of sending gay solider couples into battle, because they were believed to be the most ferocious fighters. The famous pass of Thermopylae, for example was held by 300 soldiers – who consisted of 150 gay couples. In its early years, the SA – Hitler and Rohm’s underground army – was seen as predominantly gay. Rohm assigned prominent posts to his lovers, making Edmund Heines his deputy and Karl Ernst the SA commander in Berlin. The organisation would sometimes meet in gay bars. The gay art historian Christian Isermayer said in an interview, “I got to know people in the SA. They used to throw riotous parties even in 1933… I once attended one. It was quite well-behaved but thoroughly gay. But then, in those days, the SA was ultra-gay.” ”

      I think the far left keeps bringing up nazism to end debates and shut down discussions because they want to prevent people from looking too closely at the sorts of things they themselves have planned for the future.

      Exactly. All too many of our masters are sexual perverts who wish death on Jews for having the stones to call their taste for sodomy and child-rape an abomination.

    Few people bother watching CNN because most viewers are aware that CNN’s goal is to programme Americans to believe in its enlightened view of how the world should work.

    Anderson does not wish to discuss how the Folsom Street Fair relates to the Dems’ pseudo-revelations.

    Be nice to Anderson. He had a hard life hanging out at Studio 54 as a kid and being baby sat by Michael Jackson.

  • Blacksmith

    These asses have no idea what they are in for when they finally empower the muzz to take over. While we are protecting our own they will be fodder for rape and beheading.

    Andy’s just another bubble-boy. Imagine all the love letters he gets in the email box. I bet he even beats Richard Boone’s tally….

    Where is the skull and bones of these supposed “victims” of imagined “torture?”
    You are a dimmi fool, Cooper. Stay away from tall buildings when you meet your Islamic oppressors. It won’t be the fall that kills you, it will be the sudden stop at the end.

    Anderson Cooper’s Nazi comparisons are offensive. He is not a responsible journalist. He’s flamed out on this and they should reconsider his contract.

    Well a very important difference is that under Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, Castro and a few others, their possessions would have been taken and then they would have been executed and sent to the ovens or buried in mass graves.

    Again, if there’s anything in the report that isn’t a pack of lies, it’s only a small fraction of what hajji deserved.

    As for the Khmer Rouge, they were the Islamic State of their day, coming closer to carrying out the socialist program as anyone had before or has since, with a zeal that alarmed even the leaders of more respectable socialist nations—abolition of markets, money and even industry in favour of subsistence farming, heavy agricultural labour for all every day from dawn to dusk (Pol Pot and his cronies and thugs excepted), swift and brutal liquidation of anyone judged to be a parasite or a threat to the revolution, including such subversive intellectuals as Western-trained doctors. People were shot for falling asleep during the day, for asking too many questions, or for wearing glasses (thought a bourgeois affectation).

    By the time the Vietnamese managed to drive the Khmer Rouge back into the bush, “Democratic Kampuchea” had already succeeded in starving or killing a quarter of its own people, disproportionately from Cambodia’s minorities—40 percent of Cambodian Muslims died.

    I wonder will it come to that before Iran gets serious about reining in ISIS and teaching Sunni Iraqis manners—again.

    Then Anderson Cooper would be wearing a pink triangle.

  • The real Nazi is Anderson Cooper himself with his perfectly groomed hair, snappy suits, and endearing love for white men.
