Washington, June 02 (ANI): Sarah Palin has slammed her new neighbour journalist-author Joe McGinniss for comparing her verbal tactics to the Nazis.
In a recent interview with NBC, McGinniss characterized Palin's recent comments about him as "ugly innuendo" and "revolting".
He even compared her verbal and written attacks to tactics used during Nazi Germany.What I've learned... is very informative and I think is probably a lesson for the American people of the power Palin has to incite hated and her willingness and readiness to do it," CBS News quoted McGinniss, as saying in the interview.
"She has pushed a button and unleashed the hounds of hell... And that's the same kind of tactic, and I'm not calling her a Nazi, but that's the same kind of tactic that the Nazi troopers used in Germany in the 30s. And I don't think there is any place for it in America," he added.
Palin, however, was in no mood to spare McGinniss.
She blasted McGinniss through her Facebook page, saying: "How that equates me with the Nazis is quite beyond me.
"If receiving nasty emails and even death threats is the standard by which we judge 'inciting hatred,' then the left in this country has been 'inciting hatred' on my family for almost two years now.
"We don't complain about this or call people 'Nazis' because we value freedom of speech enough to believe that even ignorant and hateful people have a right to it. It's a shame that a self-proclaimed 'journalist' doesn't understand this". (ANI)
