Mr. Colmes-

Your behavior with Mr. Goldberg was disgraceful. It was obvious you hadn’t read his book and you had no intention of letting Mr. Goldberg describe his book or respond to your ridiculous assertion that his book equated Nazis with liberals. Good grief. A classic example of the tired leftist tactic of shouting down anyone who disagrees with you. Shame on you.

I am a loyal viewer and a CHRISTIAN/SOUTHERNER – you insulted us all! How dare you say that someone the likes of Hitler will be carrying a cross and wearing white while coming into this country. You “sir” are a bigot! I have no respect for you or anything you will ever say.

I was quoting Sinclair Lewis, who said, “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”

I now know why I am not a liberal democrat, after watching allen shout down the gentleman who wrote the book about liberals and fascist, Republicans believe in free speech, we all wanted to hear about the book not a loud mouth liberal like allen spouting his agenda. Thanks

Alan,,,,,,Wow,,,, the guy with the little red/yellow “Hitler stash” book really got you to lose your cool tonight. The funny thing is that you NEVER and I mean NEVER show that kind of disdain and emotion when one your liberal loons say that about Bush.

Colmes,,, dude…. you really can’t hold your weight on the show. People like Coulter and others always get the best of you. Try being more fair and you might actually draw some support more often. I have watched you now (only because of Sean) for several years and you have not changed a bit. You always are on the wrong side of the issues and always get spanked by those who are more articulate than you.

Keep trying…. You’ll be upset again in Nov 08 though.

Hey Alan,

I would have liked to have said this to Mr. Goldberg:

Hitler was Catholic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He was very religious, and the Vatican was friendly with him, and I’d
say even secretly condoned his actions.

How can idiots like this get such a platform to spew their stupidity.

mr colmes,

i find teh opinions of your guest joshua goldberg appalling,if not just stupid and down right ungrounded historically speaking.

to compare the american liberal left to the nazi party in germany is just ridiculous.the american democratic party does promise things to the american people,all american people.hitler offered certain things to certain groups,and then killed the rest that didnt agreed with his views.

the nazi party was all about state control of every aspect of the populaces life as it benefited the states goal of conquering and exploiting the rest of the rest of teh world to fatten the pockets of the upper echelon of its leadership and their cronies.

ill be damned,that sounds like americas republican leadership of today.
thank you

You should review the Goldberg interview with someone else in the
business with professional experience in interviewing. You could not
be aware of what you did.

Mr. Colmes,

Try not to be so shrill when talking to your guests and don’t interupt them when they are speaking just because you don’t lke what they are saying.

You appear petty and unprofessional when you do these things.

You might want to consider a course in Civil Debating and a Basic Course in Conversational Courtesy and Manners.

Utilizing the title as Commentator/Entertainer does not excuse bad behavior and manners in any setting unless you are going for the Howard Stern Shock Jock Format.

Hi, Alan, I was really bothered when you spent the entire segment with Jonah putting him on the defensive. What was the point of even asking him to come on as a guest? You refused to even let us hear out what the book was about! The entire segment was a waste of the viewers time, and his I’m going to watching the show if you don’t stop doing that.

So, it’s okay for someone to equate liberalism with fascism, and not have to defend that position? That ‘s what we do on our show. We challenge guests who then are, yes, on the defensive, to justify their points of view.

Hey Alan, your guest is wrong regarding his comparison of liberals to the Nazis. You and other liberal idiots such as the ones you want to get elected are much closer to communists.

Once again you have displayed your inability to THINK logically! Can’t even follow the bouncing ball … I’ve known for years that LIBERALS are Fascists of the worst sort! Statists, willing to use the raw power of the state to advance their visions of social justice over the corpses of those who disagree! You are living proof … your inability to use logic only affect … a big mouth with nothing meaningful to say! Shout down others so they cannot be heard! Enamored with your own simple thoughts, pretending to grandeur! One sick puppy! Lie, distort and repeat the ‘Big lie’ hoping it will take on some
semblance of truth! a la Gobbles and Stalin! Sadly, your a shallow individual, willing to employ cruelty on others … It’s all there for a good Jungian analyst to read! When an individual acts and react with some much affect, the only logical (Jungian) conclusion is that you are under the power of an archetype …. most probably the Shadow! Man, get some psychological help, you need to do it soon!

I’ll try and make it simple, so you can understand; gun control, nationalized health care, violent anti-smokers, anti-Christian, militant vegetarians, homosexual leadership.
That was the Nazi party of the 30’s and the modern democRAT party of today.

Why you insist on making everything convoluted, muddy and confused; no wait that is the sum total of modern “progressive” thought in action, isn’t it?

Jonah Goldberg was civil and lucid, you were avoiding the truth and facts like a mad man. Are you in fact?

For God’s sake man, make sense, act responsible and be honest intellectually, it’s the only decent adult thing to do, after all.

I can help, I was a democrat once, myself.

Alan Colmes!
You have the most annoying, loud motor-mouth, surpassed only by your rudeness to your guests, when you constantly interrupt. I’ve come to the point where I push the MUTE button as soon as I see your face! You prove the saying “empty barrels sound the loudest” – a typical liberal Democrat!
