Open minded and civil discourse: call Palin Nazi

Roger Ebert: Palin Uses ‘Coded’ Tweets, Employs ‘Mein Kampf’ Tactics on Twitter
August 24, 2010 by Alana Goodman

n a passionate and politically-charged post on his blog, Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert wrote that Glenn Beck is a “zealot” who makes “daily insinuations” that President Obama is a secret Muslim and that Sarah Palin uses “Mein Kampf” tactics and “coded words” on Twitter.
“One buried motive for the attacks on Park51 is exploitation of the insane belief of 20% of Americans that President Obama is a Muslim,” wrote Ebert in the Aug. 19 blog post. “Zealots like Glenn Beck, with his almost daily insinuations about the Muslim grandfather Obama never knew and the father he met only once, are encouraging this mistaken belief.”

Ebert also slammed Sarah Palin, writing that “her tweets are mine fields of coded words; for her, ‘patriot’ is defined as, ‘those who agree with me.’ When she says ‘Americans,’ it is not inclusive.”
