Establishment GOP Attack On Paul Continues: He Would Have Appeased Hitler

August 2, 2013 by  

Speaking on CNN this week, Representative Peter King (R-NY) flew his establishment Republican colors, jumping to the aid of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in lambasting Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) for not being a surveillance-loving war hawk.

King suggested that Paul would have favored a policy of appeasement toward Adolf Hitler, had the Kentucky legislator been in Congress in the years leading up to the Second World War.

“He talks about us wanting to start wars and somehow people enjoy war and he talks about how we want to bomb everything,” he said. “Is that what he thinks our military does?”

“What this reminds me of, someone like Senator Paul and others in that isolationist wing,” King continued, “you know the Republicans had this debate back in the 1930s when you had the isolationists and the Charles Lindberghs saying we should appease Hitler, then the Democrats had it in the 1960s when the anti-war movement blamed America first and in both cases it hurt the party for years, each party was hurt for years.”

“I’m afraid that is what Senator Paul is going to do with us. He wants to retreat from the world. He wants to isolate ourselves, go back to ‘Fortress America.’”
