‘What Would Hitler Have Done With Fox News?’
Anti-Walker Activist Ponders ‘What Would Hitler Have Done With Fox News?’
Progressives from across the country have come to Providence, Rhode Island, this weekend to party and network for the “giant family reunion for the left” — the Netroots Nation Conference. After a crushing loss Tuesday following the failed attempt to recall Governor Scott Walker, Wisconsin activists served as the reunion’s grumpy uncle.
At the “Take a Walk, Scott: Post-Mortem of the Wisconsin Recalls” session one particularly ticked-off panelist engaged in several frustrating rants slamming Walker’s reforms, campaign finance law, and the media.
“What would Hitler have done with Fox News,” exclaimed Harry Waisbren. “It’s impossible to imagine the power of propaganda system that we have right now, and there is no counter. The one percent is able to buy our media.”
According to Waisbren’s twitter profile, the Wisconsinite is currently transplanted in New York City as an organizer for the Jobs Party ”building #Occupy #WIunion momentum.”
The Hitler analogy came about during a segment of the discussion where panelists dissected a television advertisement by Governor Walker. The activists argue the advertisement misrepresents job creation statistics in Wisconsin over the last two years.

This is the guy who claims the Astroturf roots should get the best advertising agencies to tell their story, to let the best ideas rise to the top? Then he says it's the Astroturf roots activities with their iPhone videos to are the best at getting out the message. Hate to break it to you, fella. The best did rise to the top and they voted to retain Walker.
If diversity were such a strength, why do blacks preach “solidarity”?
