One of the first blogs I ever read, which in turn brought me to Atrios' blog "Eschaton."
BartCop was always funny and definitely LIBERAL.
So sorry to hear of his death.

THE GODWINS ARE COMING! THE GODWINS ARE COMING!
Dr. Ben Carson, the right wing's favorite African-American conservative, is pandering again to the cray-crays in his party, and they love him to pieces for it.
In classic Godwinian rant, American Progressives, Carson claims, will impose Nazism on the U.S. presumably by making nonProgressives wear yellow peace signs on their clothes and wrecking their businesses ala Kristallnacht. NonProgressives will make this country condemn innocent men, women, and children to death and march them to death camps.
Dr. Carson, by warning conservative Americans about the coming Progressive/Nazi takeover of America, must also believe Progressives will annex Canada and Mexico to the U.S. and then immediately blitzkrieg all red states, maiming and killing hundreds of thousands of god-fearing nonProgressives, because THAT is what Liberal/Progressives want to do! Progressives want to turn America into NAZI GERMANY!!!!!11!
So sayeth Dr. Crazy Ben Carson.
Yes, this guy, whom the presumably rational cons believe is a serious person, actually implied this.
Who could forget how those Progressive Nazis demanded equal rights for their gay citizens, how the Progressive Nazis encouraged labor and trade unions,
or how Progressives in the Third Reich encouraged Aryan women to reproduce only wanted children.
Yes, kindly Dr. Carson gave warning to his beloved TeaPublicans about the coming imposition of Nazism on America by American Progressives, and no one laughed in his face or called for the men in white coats with the butterfly nets!
The cons are so eaten up by the fact that Barack Hussein Obama is the president of these United States, that they've sunk to the point of encouraging a talented pediatric surgeon with fevered hallucinations about Progressives to make a fool of himself in front of large crowds of people.
Poor Dr. Carson.
These seriously stupid comparisons may arouse the TeaPublicans' darkest and swampiest fears of where they imagine this country is headed, based on nothing, but that is all the more reason for Dr. Carson's popularity with the low-information voters in that particular segment of the agitated voting public.
But do not let your paranoia consume you, O TeaPubs, because Dr. Carson has assured you all that even if you believe these coming unimaginable cataclysmic events, brought to you by NAZI PROGRESSIVES!, won't happen here, 'YOU'RE VERY WRONG!"
However, he, Dr. Super nonProgressive Carson, WILL NOT LET IT HAPPEN HERE!!!111!
Do you feel the comforting gooey warmth of safety now, O ye cons? Dr. Carson hopes so. He knows how to stir the deepest, creepiest imaginings of the dopiest, creepiest among you. And you fall for this absurd twaddle every time.
"Dr. Ben Carson knows how to get an audience of conservatives going. In a recent speech, the retired Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon and current Fox News contributor suggested that progressives could turn the United States into the next Nazi Germany, according to The Huffington Post.
The comments came at a Jan. 31 fundraiser for Oregon Republican Senate candidate Dr. Monica Wehby. A video of the speech, uploaded to YouTube, shows Carson discussing how the "secular progressive movement" wants to "fundamentally change who we are." The majority of Americans who have "common sense," meanwhile, are "afraid to speak out," Carson said, because "they will be targeted, they will be called names, they will be investigated by the IRS, and all kinds of unimaginable things will happen."
A few moments later, Carson brought up the Nazis. "There comes a time when people with values simply have to stand up," he said. "Think about Nazi Germany. Most of those people did not believe in what Hitler was doing. But did they speak up? Did they stand up for what they believe in? They did not, and you saw what happened."
"And if you believe that same thing can't happen again, you're very wrong," Carson then added. "But we're not going to let it happen." --Talking Points Memo
