Eagle Forum Leader Tells Tea Partiers to "Buy More Guns!"

85-year-old Kitty Werthmann, president of South Dakota Eagle Forum, spoke at a New Jersey Tea Party rally this week. Werthmann grew up in Austria under Hitler’s regime, and felt the need to warn Americans about the horrors of socialism and the imminent doom we face under the leadership of Barack Obama. She explained the origin of the word “Nazi” (short for the German name of the National Socialist Workers Party) and punctuated each of her anecdotes with “That’s socialism!”

Werthmann said that Adolf Hitler spoke just like an American politician, and spoke ill of welfare, the nationalized health care system, and the employment of women, all leading up to a strange and sudden turn to militancy. In this video of her speech, at 28:15 she says:

When the people fear the government, that’s tyranny, but when the government fears the people, that’s you, the Tea Party. That’s liberty. Keep your guns. Keep your guns, and buy more guns!

From "Wacko" To "Vindicated" By Glenn Beck In Just Three Years

The Rapid City Journal reports on the event Glenn Beck hosted in South Dakota last night ... and if this excerpt does not sum up the utter ridiculousness of Beck and the entire right-wing movement today, I don't know what does:

For Kitty Werthmann of Pierre, president of the conservative group Eagle Forum, the VIP reception was the second personal meeting she had with Beck. She appeared on his Fox News show in New York in September.

Werthmann, 84, has long preached the dangers of socialism and its influences in America, a message that Beck preaches on TV, radio and in personal appearances. Werthmann said she sees the socialist agenda in expanding government under the Obama administration as affirmation of her long-held fears.

“I have been preaching for 30 years what socialism is all about. And now we are seeing it very clear,” she said. “I remember when people always thought I was a wacko -- too far out, you know. But now, I’m being vindicated.”

I first jokingly wrote about Werthmann more than three years ago and since then she has gone from being considered a "wacko" to being "vindicated" by Glenn Beck:

Kitty Werthmann To Appear On Glenn Beck This Week

I have written about South Dakota Eagle Forum president Kitty Werthmann and her DVD "Freedom to Dictatorship in 5 Years" a few times before:

From her own experience, Mrs. Kitty Werthmann will help you see we are walking the same path as the Nazi's. When she was 12 years old living in Austria there was order, prayer and pictures of Jesus. Hitler took over and all that was removed! Unemployment rose to 35%, bank loans rose to 25%, unions called strikes - all this with 98% of the people claiming to be Catholic! Soon there was massive welfare. Cries went out for equal rights for woman. Socialism took women out of the home, raising the children, and into the factories. They took the children away from the family and raised them by the state. The Health department offered training for the elderly but they were killed.

So of course, she is going to be on Glenn Beck this Friday:

Kitty Werthmann of Pierre will be a guest on Friday's edition of “The Glenn Beck Program” on the Fox News channel.

The show airs at 4 p.m. CDT. Werthmann, 84, will talk about growing up in Austria and living during the rule of Adolf Hitler.

Interestingly, we first wrote about Werthmann back in 2007 when, if I recall correctly, George W. Bush was still president - oddly, nobody took her seriously back then, but for some reasson she's suddenly found herself in high demand ever since Barack Obama was elected to the White House.

Right Wing Leftovers

  • The Judicial Confirmation Network has released a 9 minute video (?!?) laying out why Elena Kagan should not be confirmed to the Supreme Court.
  • Meet the latest Religious Right scandal:  the soldier behind the Afghanistan Wikileaks is gay!
  • You know what would have kept Lindsay Lohan out of jail?  Jesus.
  • I have no idea why, but Mike Farris, Wendy Wright, Frank Gaffney, Kitty Werthmann, Sen. Jim DeMint, and Rep. Pete Hoekstra are holding an event at the National Press Club on Wednesday on "U.N. Treaties and Their Impact on Americans."
  • Finally, Brian Camenker continues to complain about Tea Party activists shunning him ... while speaking at a Tea Party rally:

Right Wing Leftovers

  • Does Glenn Beck have a tax problem?
  • I expect that Marco Rubio will get a warm reception when he speaks at CPAC.
  • Pat Robertson's CBN is celebrating 50 years of ministry.
  • Day Gardner weighs in on Harry Reid: "I believe the comments made by Senator Harry Reid stems from a time in American history where the shade of a black man's skin determined whether he was a field nigger or a house nigger. Either way, to the slave owner he was still just a slave; a sub-human to be owned and controlled."
  • Finally, guess who Sean Hannity had on his radio program last week?  Kitty Werthmann.
