PAST PERFORMANCE IS NO GUARANTEE OF FUTURE RESULTS. Shameful: Markos Moulitsas spreads ‘dangerous lie’ about ‘NRA and American conservatives:’
Daily Kos founder and Vox co-founder Markos Moulitsas wasted no time in using the tragedy in Charlottesville, Va. to propagate a disgusting smear about conservatives and the NRA.
Moulitsas tweets, “NRA and American conservatives/Nazis are one and the same.”
Curiously, two of the other founders of Vox have each written:
Not everything the Nazis touched was bad. Hitler was a vegetarian. Volkswagen is a perfectly good car company. Universal health care is a perfectly good idea. Indeed, the Nazis actually did a pretty good job increasing economic growth and improving standards of living (they were, many think, the first Keynesians, adopting the strategy even before Keynes had come up with it), pushing Germany out of a depression and back into expansion. Unfortunately, they also set out to conquer Europe and exterminate the Jews. People shouldn’t do that.
—“Nazi Ideas,” Ezra Klein, The American Prospect, September 11(!) 2006.
And fellow Voxer Mathew Yglesias tweeted last year:
Perennial question from last year: Is GE happy to be associated with Vox?
