This again is disgraceful incivility from morons who have been sucking the life out of government for too long....this is the next battleground and it is important. Again public employees' pay, benefits and job security have to be adjusted to be comparable to private employees if we are to be able to afford public services....It's not Nazi Germany Mr. Shelton...it's America has every private employee has known it for 10 years....and guess what..if/when these are adjusted we will provide a better public education...but what we ultimately need is school choice! Then you give the Dept of Education some real competition...
Welcome to the new civility.
At a Thursday rally in New Jersey protesting Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s pension deal that would cut pensions and benefits to public workers, a union leader charged Christie with acting like a Nazi. And not any ordinary Nazi, but Adolf Hitler himself.
“Good afternoon brothers and sisters. Welcome to Nazi Germany,” Communications Workers of America District 1 Vice President Christopher Shelton is seen raving in a video posted on YouTube.
“We have Adolf Christie and his two generals trying to make New Jersey Nazi Germany.”
The two Nazi “generals” apparently refer to two Democratic state legislators instrumental in reaching the pension deal with Christie.
After ranting more about “Adolf Christie,” the YouTube video shows Shelton comparing the pension battle in New Jersey to World War II.
“Brothers and sisters, this is not going to be an easy fight,” he shrieked. “It took World War II to get rid of the last Adolf Hitler. It is going to take World War III to get rid of Adolf Christie. Are you ready for World War III?”
Rally attendees are seen wildly cheering Shelton’s speech in the video.
A request for comment on whether Shelton’s rhetoric constitutes appropriate political speech was not immediately provided when The Daily Caller contacted the CWA District 1. Gov. Christie’s press office also did not provide a comment by time of publication.
