Does Dino Rossi Agree that Environmentalists are Nazis?

posted by on June 20 at 16:29 PM

Via Horse’s Ass: At an appearance yesterday at the Building Industry Association of Washington’s annual luncheon, gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi was introduced by BIAW president Brad Spears as a “candidate who believes as BIAW believes.”

Goldy points out:

Um… the BIAW believes a lot of things Dino, some more offensive than others. So if you don’t believe as they do, that DOE’s stormwater regulations are the moral equivalent of the Holocaust*, isn’t it time you set the record straight and denounce your patrons at the BIAW (an organization that has made your election their top priority in 2008) for their violent, offensive and over-the-top rhetoric?
* And attributed global-warming and growth-management legislation to “radical environmentalists”. And referred to Gov. Christine Gregoire as a “heartless, power-hungry she-wolf who would eat her own young to get ahead.” And referred to her supporters as “witches.”

Obviously out of touch with Washington State, the guy makes McCain look sane.

I dunno, all the Nazi refrences and that "she-wolf" business point to an inordinate fascination with this sort of thing. Paging Dr. Freud!

Republicans are into some twisted shit.

I wonder if ECB actually has to wipe the spittle off her lips as she furiously types this weak ass shit.

First of all, Brad Spears said he believes Rossi believes as BIAW believes. Rossi didn't say it. As to the holocaust exaggerated metaphor. Please. Is this best you got?

I'm no Rossi fan but I'm about to put your posts on stupid ignore for crap this stupid.

The bigger question is: When is Frank Chopp going to denounce his BIAW pals? How many Jewish enviros have contributed to his campaigns over the years? How many have helped bankroll campaigns for House seats that would increase his majority? Frank, your silence is deafening.
