Though this would be unintentional, due to the intentional flight of obvious stupidity lately uttered by Representative Keith Ellison, Democrat - Minnesota.
Speaking of the destruction of the World Trade Center and the damage to the Pentagon, Ellison said, "It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that. After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the communists for it and it put the leader of that country [Hitler] in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted."
On Tuesday, Ellison attempted to further clarify his Reichstag statement by telling the Minneapolis Star-Tribune he was making the point that "in the aftermath of a tragedy, space is opened up for governments to take action that they could not have achieved before that."
When asked for examples of such Nazi-like action in the wake of 9/11, Ellison cited the Iraq war, certain provisions of the Patriot Act and Bush's commutation of Scooter Libby's sentence. (source)
Don't worry that the rhetoric sounds so much like the radicals in the Middle East (Jews are Nazis according to them) or that Radical Islam worked with Hitler during WWII and Nazis actually implemented genocide, Representative Keith Ellison, Democrat - Minnesota, is a moderate Muslim - yanno?
If he's lucky, someone will determine George Bush has a thimble of Jewish ancestry. When that happens, Representative Keith Ellison, Democrat - Minnesota can come out of the moderate closet and be guaranteed to have some in the MSM cover him as an underdog victim of Bush's policies and gather even more support from the UN and the usual suspects around the world. Well, it might have to wait for some in France to take a break from burning cars.
