Yup, for anyone who had any faint remaining doubt, confirmation that Don Brash has completely lost it:
Don Brash hurls Nazi slur at bureaucrats
Act Leader Don Brash has used Nazi analogies to attack local body bosses.
In a speech today to the Federated Farmers annual conference, Brash said he is constantly hearing horror stories of the “little Hitlers” who he claimed populated the lower levels of local and regional government.
Given the huge surge in support for ACT following the Brash coup (oh no wait – that didn’t happen) and then nonsense like this, the National take-over of ACT is looking more and more like a really dumb plan.
The former National Party leader also suggested global warming might not be all that bad in the speech. … He said even if a case can be made that human activity is behind an increase in global temperatures, it is not obvious that this is necessarily a bad thing.
Brash said human societies thrive in both Singapore and in Finland, even though average temperatures in both places are very different.
