  Brownshirts Dressed in Blue?
Hitler had written his plan for Germany and the World in Mein Kampf and there was little of freedom in it.
The Nazis had a small minority in the Reichstag, but there was a large organization of thugs known as the SA, or Brownshirts.
Once the Nazis had consolidated their power, newspapers or radio stations expressing opposition were either shut down, or the Brownshirts destroyed their presses and offices.

  Sturmabteilung - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
SA men were often known as brownshirts from the color of their uniform and to distinguish them from the SS who wore fl (compare the Italian flshirts).
Brown coloured shirts were chosen as the SA uniform because a large batch of them were cheaply available after World War I, having originally been ordered for German troops in Africa.
The original purpose for the creation of the SS was to restrict the power of the brownshirts and its leaders.

 The American Spectator
Because the radical Islamists demand -- and we supply -- an endless stream of apologies for conduct that is either entirely justified or inoffensive, they are winning their campaign of intimidation.
The Islamic Brownshirts are serving the same two purposes that Hitler's did.
The Islamic Brownshirts are working feverishly to suppress any criticism of themselves and their ideology.

 Horowitz's Brownshirts and “Balance” in the Classroom by Alan Goodman
In my review of David Horowitz’s book “The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America,” (Revolution #42) I sketched a picture of the wide range of basic facts and truths that could not be spoken on campus if Horowitz had his way.
Brownshirt student groups “inspired” by Horowitz are turning in their teachers who address issues other than the topic of a class in the classroom (and outside class as well).
And stop sending his brownshirts into classrooms to snitch on his opponents.

 The Brownshirting of America by Paul Craig Roberts
For all their defects, however, neocons are thoughtful compared to the world of talk radio, whose inhabitants are trained to shout down everyone else.
From whence came the brownshirt movement that slavishly adheres to the neocons’ agenda?
Thomas Frank in What’s the Matter With Kansas, locates the movement in legitimate conservative resentments of people who feel that family, religious, and patriotic values are given short shrift by elitist liberals.

 Cariweb Forums: The Return of Bush's Brownshirts
It was one thing to accuse a sitting president of lying about sex, and quite another to accuse war heroes of being lying cowards.
The first victims of GOP Brownshirts were Vietnam War heros -- triple amputee Max Cleland, a Democrat, and prisoner of war John McCain, a Republican.
The Brownshirts took the guise of "Swiftboat Veterans for Truth." The genius of the idea was right there in the name.

 BROWNSHIRTS ON THE MARCH... NATIONAL SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT ABORTION PARTY
They were the thugs Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) used in their drive to power, beating up opponents, destroying polling booths, driving off opposition party voters at the polls stealing ballot boxes, attacking and trashing opposition party headquarters, and generally brutalizing anybody who dared to oppose their beloved fuehrer.
The SA, or Sturmabteilung, also called 'Brownshirts' were Nazi terrorists in uniform dedicated to intimidating and brutalizing any groups or individuals who stood in their way.
The Brownshirts are on the march, and the banner they carry is a Kerry/Edwards campaign poster - and that tells us plenty about what the new NSDAP is all about.

They paid actors to make phony video press releases and paid cash to some reporters who were willing to take it in return for positive stories.
And every day they unleash squadrons of digital brownshirts to harass and hector any journalist who is critical of the President.
While it could be argued whether or not the White House specifically paid people to write certain stories, the brownshirt comments are just throwing meat to the base.

Gore’s rant against "digital brownshirts" must surely rank as one of the most extreme manifestations of "projection" ever to present itself to the scrutiny of medical science.
As Gore is well aware – or at least as he should be aware, in his more lucid moments – it is the Democrats, not the Republicans, who pay Internet propagandists to lie, defame, dissemble and otherwise corrupt political discourse in America.
But if such a thing as a digital brownshirt movement truly exists, its seeds surely took root in the Clinton White House as early as the summer of 1995.

 Striderweb » Blog Archive » Subverting “Digital Brownshirts”
The most interesting thing about the post was the comments section, in which several people started joking about the speech in which Al Gore called online conservatives “digital brownshirts” — a.k.a.
With all due respect to their politics, I am adamantly against any attempts by conservative netizens to claim as their own the term “brownshirt”.
It was something that, if it really existed, people would want to be a part of; so the joke became that the Conspiracy does exist, and we’re all members.

 Dean's World: Dean the Brown Shirt
If "digital brownshirts" really referred to "those a bit farther up the food-throwing chain", then it's an even more maladroit metaphor than it seems at first glance.
The actual Brownshirts were as far down the chain as it's possible to get.
If Dean is a Brownshirt, and I get about.5% of the traffic that he does, do I even deserve to call myself Kahkishirt.

I think "brownshirts" is a compliment to their choice of earth tones.
As long as leading Democrats continue to smear anyone who diagrees with them as brownshirts of any stripe, I see no reason to accommodate their views or their candidacies.
I thouth it was interesting that he throws out the "digital brownshirts" line, but closes his speech by calling for an expansion of high spped internet connections so everyone can practice citizen journalism with TV quality video feeds.

Would the Michigan brownshirts argue that America must also be willing to accept the importation of 10 percent of the Chinese or Indian populations?
The truth is that even the proponents of Brown America believe in immigration restrictions, they would merely set the numerical limit much higher than those who value historical America and its freedoms.
Given that their position is so nonsensical and the way in which any serious discussion will reveal that fact, it is little wonder that the brownshirts are so desperate to stifle all debate on the matter.

Posted by: tanstaafl28 on Jan 19, 2006 12:24 PM The problem is that these "brownshirts" haven't come up against any real opposition of any kind.
The left is far too diffused and splintered into too many special interest groups to make a cohesive response to these tactics.

They call it "education," "to cultivate a generation of intellectuals who will be effective advocates for the fundamentals of reason, rational self-interest, individual rights and capitalism." The ARI supports clubs on college campuses nationwide, and even does outreach to high schools, giving cash prizes to students for essay contests.
