CNN's Blitzer Compares Ted Nugent to Nazis

Wolf Blitzer/Ted Nugent throwdown

Wolf Blitzer is going after Ted Nugent after the remarks Nugent made in January. Then, Nugent called Obama a “Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured, subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster," saying he had "weasel[ed] his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America."

On his show yesterday, Blitzer put the word “sub-human mongrel” into context saying

As someone who has studied the Holocaust and studied World War II, I went back and we checked, and during World War II, Julius Streicher, this is what he would say about the Jews in justifying the genocide of the Jewish people: ‘The Jew is a mongrel. He has hereditary tendencies from Aryans, Asiatics, Negroes, and from the Mongolians.

Comparing Ted Nugent to Julius Streicher, the lead propagandist for Hitler's regime, Blitzer asked if Nugent knew the history behind the word mongrel.

Talking on his show today, Blitzer doubled down with his Nazi rhetoric, saying Nugent’s comments were “Nazi era”-like.  After criticizing Nugent for two days comparing him to a Nazi war criminal Blitzer then got defensive, stating:

[N]ot sure if you know this but Nugent has been tweeting, he’s been going after CNN calling us a Nazi Propaganda machine.

Here is Nugent's tweet:
