Alan Keyes: 'Hitlerian' Obama Using Ferguson To 'Turn Our Cities Into Powder Kegs That Will Explode'

Conservative activist Alan Keyes, who apparently has been watching White House speeches on Ferguson that never took place in the real world, accused President Obama today of using the protests over Michael Brown’s death to intimidate Republicans in Congress into yielding to his political agenda.

Keyes, who faced off against Obama in the 2004 U.S. Senate race in Illinois, told Newsmax TV host Ed Berliner that the president is “exploiting this situation by way of threatening the Republicans, saying that there will be massive unrest if they don’t knuckle under to his will and trying to prove that he’s got the power to turn our cities into powder kegs that will explode in the face of anybody who opposes him.”

“It’s a Hitlerian tactic and I think we ought not to as Americans respond to it with anything but contempt,” he said.
