Horrible piece of Liberal propaganda, and I consider myself Liberal!
21 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'm Liberal, but I have definitely made many friends over the years that support the Tea Party, or some form of libertarianism, and this episode literally smacks of some political propaganda. First of all Pre-Nazi Germany was not lawless. The law and Government was still very much intact, but certainly in debt. And it was a progressive government as well. I realize this was a joke, but I really felt as though the went out of their way to construct a horrid straw man argument. There are many points to be made about small government, and ironically the show has made them in episodes like "420".

Most Tea Party advocates are not all about rolling away every EPA standard and TV standard. Furthermore I don't buy that professional people would simply descend into madness. If anything Europe shows countries that minimally intervene on the personal lives of their citizens to actually be more peaceful.

The speech at the end is truly propagandist, from a show that is usually known to champion the little guy. There are many ways in which they could've made a parody of the Tea Party without accusing them of being anarchists while Liberals just want "more government" (because hint: Liberals are not necessarily for more government, just less is some places and more in others -- and the Tea Party is the same way, they just support different means by which to accomplish these things).

I've felt like before the shows is better about being even handed and taking shots and both sides. This is why I was so shocked to see such a truly one sided attack, and without the grace of Colbert or Stewart, against a group of common people.
