Inside the Liberty Convention (and Nazism?)

Posted By on Mon, May 24, 2010 at 2:05 PM

Last weekend's Liberty Convention, hosted at the Adams Center by Celebrating Conservatism, featured the same speeches about states rights and Second Amendment freedoms now typical of western Montana's far-right conservative body. But new to the local floor was Kitty Werthmann, an 84-year-old Christian conservative who likens America's current political climate to the Nazism she witnessed as a child growing up in Austria during Adolf Hitler's regime.

Werthmann has raised liberal eyebrows nationwide over the past few years with her claims that the left is promoting an agenda similar to Hitler's Third Reich—increased gun control, universal health care and national identification cards. Her hour-long Missoula speech, given Saturday evening, is now available in six parts on YouTube. Take a look. It's a doozy.
