Dennis Miller Slams Ted Nugent For Comparing Obama Administration To Nazi Germany

Talk show host Dennis Miller engaged in a fierce war of words with musician and conservative activist Ted Nugent, objecting to Nugent’s comparisons of the Obama administration to Nazi Germany. The musician offered a half-hearted apology last week for referring to Obama as a “subhuman mongrel,” but refused to back down on his Nazi comparisons.

Speaking on Miller’s show, Nugent said that the president was intent on “destroying America” with his policies. “There was an incrementalism to what happened in Germany and other places historically, where they came in slowly, and they started, you know, the power struggle between the different races, and the power struggle between different elements of society, and they incrementally worked their way in,” he argued. “I really believe that what we see with the IRS can be compared accurately and historically to the early maneuvers of people like jack booted thugs, like the brownshirts.”

But Miller objected and said he found it offensive to compare anything Obama has done to the slaughtering of six million Jews. “I’ll be glad when he’s out of there, but he’s not a Nazi,” said Miller. “I think about the 6 million Jews rounded up and thrown into ovens and then I think about a guy who’s mismanaging the country, but God, it’s not within a million miles.”

Although Nugent went on to claim that he doesn’t think Obama is actually comparable to Hitler, Miller continued to slam him for the tasteless remarks. “I think you mean Nazis unless there’s some goofball jackbooted thugs I don’t know about in a fictional piece,” he said. “I think that’s the reference, and they’re not like that, they just stink at running an economy and they’re a little soft on world terror.”
