Apparently Godwin's Law is yet another one which doesn't apply to Republicans


Inspired by the actions of Eduardo Saverin, the Facebook co-founder who renounced his citizenship ahead of a large tax payment associated with the company’s much-ballyhooed initial public offering, Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Bob Casey (D-PA) unveiled a bill Thursday to force such tax-dodgers to pay a 30 percent tax rate on all future U.S. investments and ban them from ever setting foot in the country again.

Anti-tax activist Grover Norquist compared it to the actions of Nazi Germany.

“I think Schumer can probably find the legislation to do this. It existed in Germany in the 1930s and Rhodesia in the ’70s and in South Africa as well,” Norquist said, as quoted by The Hill. “He probably just plagiarized it and translated it from the original German.”
Yes, that's a real probative and not-at-all illogical reaction to it -- jackass.

Final proof, if any was needed. Eduardo Saverin is the true Republican patriot. All take, no obligations or responsibilities. Perfect.

Who elected Norquist King of Congress?

Rhodesia in the ’70s

A curious example, since the white minority regime at that time was a favorite of American right-wingers.
