College Professor Compares Tea Party to Nazis (Video)

| by Michael Allen

A psychology professor at South Texas College in Weslaco, Texas, was filmed last month comparing the rise of the Tea Party to the Nazis during the 1930s.

“In 1931, which was really interesting, the Nazis, people were kind of tired of them," stated Dr. Blake Armstrong, noted TheBlaze (video below). "They’ve been around since 1920, 11 years now. They’ve won seats, they’re like the Tea Party. That’s such a good example. “Don’t tell anybody I said that though, Tea Party are like the Nazis.”

"But in the sense of how they politically came to power, there’s a good analogy there," added Dr. Armstrong. "That eventually people realized, ‘Oh, these Nazis are a bunch of nuts.' These Tea Party people are a bunch of nuts. I mean, the analogy really is a good analogy.”

According to Campus Reform, an anonymous student recorded Dr. Armstrong on Nov. 17, but it's not clear if the professor knew he was being filmed or gave his consent.

“It’s wrong for him to use his position as a soap box for his beliefs, especially with young, impressionable students," the student told TheBlaze.

“This semester, [Dr. Armstrong] insulted Republicans about three times before this video was recorded,” claimed the student. "On this day, he called Sen. Ted Cruz a bastard for using the last name Cruz to win his election. I didn’t know exactly what he meant, but I decided to start recording ... It’s very easy to see that he has a vendetta against Republicans and religion with an emphasis on Christianity.”
