Did you know that Great Britain’s exit from the crumbling ship known as the European Union (EU) is really Hitler?
Yep, that is according to Liberal Democrat Lord Dick Taverne.
The House of Lords voted to accept the EU bill, otherwise known as the Notification of Withdrawal legislation. This means that British Prime Minister Theresa May can now trigger Article 50 by the end of March.
Prior to the passage of the vote, the British Lord compared Brexit supporters to Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Benit Mussolini.
Here are his comments:
“…It is a very dangerous step towards the doctrine that the people’s will must always prevail. This is the doctrine always favored by Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin — and by Erdogan at present. It is a denial of the essence of democracy which we have supported with great effect in this country and now we are abandoning it. My Lords, we are the guardians of parliamentary democracy, and we are right in this. We are the democrats. We are right to support the democratic cause.”
ConservativeHome.com had the best headline for his comments: “Lib Dems: One referendum is Hitler. A second referendum wouldn’t be Hitler. Unless we lose, in which case: Hitler.”
At the very least he should be applauded for quoting a Groucho Marx joke.

The left is absolutely obsessed with Hitler. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, though, considering that he was a socialist. Moreover, the concept of the EU is more of a Hitler idea because he championed the nation states. By having nation states, Hitler and the Nazis would have had greater centralized power in Berlin; he detested states’ rights and national sovereignty.
