Chuck Morse is a rightwing radio host and, well, journalist of sorts, perhaps most notable for his attempted write-in campaign against Barney Frank for the 2004 Massachusetts’s 4th congressional district elections (he did not get enough certified signatures to appear on the ballot). Morse is also the author of Was Hitler a Leftist?, which was heavily promoted by the WND, and in which Morse (among much else) argues that President Obama is “worse than a communist” and, in fact, a Nazi or at least more akin to a “national socialist” than a communist. You see, contrary to popular opinion (fact, in fact), Nazism, according to Morse, is a leftist philosophy, not a right-wing one; and the parallels to the Obama administration are obvious: Hallmarks of a nazi rule that Morse identifies include a national welfare system, nationalization of police forces, and a centralized regulation of private businesses; these are apparently the elements that reallycharacterizes nazism.
Then, in the very next paragraph of his book, and completely without irony, Morse presents one of the most obvious pieces of evidence in his case for the claim that the Obama administration and the Left are like nazis: the use of demonization. Many leftists today, says Morse, don’t just say that their political opponents are wrong but really want to hurt them.
We’ll just leave it there for readers to assess.
At present Morse seems to be primarily trying to expose the Deep State.
Diagnosis: Self-awareness is difficult, and your lack of it better be serious to count as a loon on lack-of-self-awareness grounds alone. But Morse makes his lack of self-awareness into something of an art form. Congratulations.
