Barney Frank Confronts Woman With Obama-As-Hitler Sign: What Planet Are You From?

Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) had an amazing moment at a town hall meeting, confronting a woman with an Obama-as-Hitler sign, and who asked Frank why he supported Obama’s “Nazi policy” on health care:

Frank, who is a member of at least two groups that the Nazis sent to the death camps — he is Jewish and gay — fired back. “On what planet do you spent most of your time?” he asked.

“You stand there with a picture of the President, defaced to look like Hitler, and compare the effort to increase health care to the Nazis. My answer to you is, as I said before, it is a tribute to the First Amendment that this kind of vile, contemptible nonsense is so freely propagated.”
