CAUGHT IN CLASS: TEXAS PROFESSOR COMPARES THE TEA PARTY TO THE NAZIS

December 11, 2014 by Jackie Moreau

A history class on the Nazi political party provoked a college student to turn on his camera phone after he allegedly heard the professor call Senator Ted Cruz, a favorite of the Tea Party, a bastard for using the last name “Cruz” to win the election.

A YouTube video published on Nov. 17 shows Blake Armstrong, psychology professor at South Texas College in McAllen, Texas, explaining to his students:

In 1931, which was really interesting, the Nazis — people are kind of tired of them. They’ve been around since 1920, 11 years now, they’ve won seats — they’re like the tea party. Look, that’s such a good example. Don’t tell anybody I said that, though. “The tea party are like the Nazis.”

However, Professor Armstrong was not hesitant in affirming the brilliance of his analogy. He went on to elaborate:

But, in the sense of how they politically came to power, there’s a good analogy there that eventually people realize, “Oh, these Nazis, they’re a bunch of nuts. These tea party people, they’re a bunch of nuts.” I mean, the analogy really is a good analogy. And they started losing votes again in late ’31, 1932, they started losing seats.

The college student who captured these unfiltered comments has requested to remain anonymous.

According to the college website, South Texas College was created on Sept. 1, 1993, by Texas Senate Bill 251 to serve Hidalgo and Starr counties, and a confirmation election established a taxing district for the college in 1995.

Judging by the county-to-county results of the November 2014  gubernatorial race in Texas, the people of Texas may disagree with this publicly funded history lesson.
