Joe Biden sent a donation appeal email to Democrat followers which compared the Republican Party to Nazis. Biden, often criticized for inappropriate off-the-cuff comments has committed his biggest, and most offensive gaffe yet. In a PR disaster for the White House, Biden's email stated, "As things heat up, you can expect House Democrats will be hit with a GOP blitzkrieg of vicious Swift-Boat-style attack ads, Karl Rove-inspired knockout tactics, thinly veiled attempts at character assassination and tea party disruptions."
Blitzkrieg is an anglicized word describing all-mechanized force concentration of tanks, infantry, artillery and air power, concentrating overwhelming force and rapid speed to break through enemy lines, and once the latter is broken, proceeding without regard to its flank. It was a method used by Nazi Germany during invasions to Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands and France.
Biden continued with his Nazi slur by referring to Democrats as the Allies who fought back the Nazi occupation of Europe. "Our Democratic allies in the House need your help, and the President and I hope we can count on you to come to their defense so we can hold onto our Democratic Majority and continue moving American forward in a new direction."
Outrage justifiably ensued. Spokesman for Minority Leader John Boehner, Kevin Smith, e-mailed a reply, "When will Democrats learn that invoking the Nazis' crimes against humanity in a political debate is simply inappropriate?"
Whatever Biden and some far left-wing zealouts may think, comparing either the Democrats or Republicans to Nazis is simply unacceptable and inappropriate. Foot-in-mouth Biden may well be forced to issue an apology if his conscience has does recognize the fact that he crossed the line. This from the second-in-command of the United States is appalling and he should be ashamed of himself.
