Exposing CNN's hypocrisy on using Nazi imagery

CNN's Rick "Hit & Run" Sanchez did a report the other day about the use of Nazi symbols on signs and placards by protesters of Obama's health care reform plan. As a matter of fact he admitted that he was actually scolded by Nancy Pelosi staffers for not backing up her claim that swastikas were seen at town hall events. So Rick Sanchez, being the good little shill that he is for the liberal Democrat party, put together this report that backs up Pelosi's claim that protesters to ObamaCare are just a bunch of "un-American" Nazis:

Now in my opinion it is total hypocrisy for CNN to be lecturing anybody about the practice of using Nazi symbolism when just last year they had this photo posted on their own web page the day after Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin gave her acceptance speech at the 2008 Republican National Convention:

Talk about the use of heavy subliminal Nazi imagery. Notice how the CNN photographer was able to position himself in such a way that the barrier in front of the podium looks just like an "S" from Hitler's Schutzstaffel. And do you also notice how Sarah Palin's wave looks like a "Heil Hitler" salute. So who is it Mr. Sanchez that started to the use of Nazi imagery first?

I honestly don't consider myself to be a "conspiracy nut" or a "crackpot", but the similarities to Nazism in that CNN photo just stood out to me when I first saw that picture.

They must think we're stupid.

I seem to recall a Republican running an ad where "bureaucrat" was morphed into "rat." There was an outcry. I guess it's only OK when the left does it.
