Help me debunk please.
Local radio trash talker Tara Servatious on 1110 WBT in Charlotte, she's the person who replaced the awful Jeff Katz last December. She has posted on her website pictures that she says are signs from protests for Bush with images depicting him as Hitler so her logic is the "what's good for the goose..... I have a good feeling lots of these were from overseas protests, can anyone help out to debunk this woman. I would be truly appreciative.

2. Sorry to report
I just did a casual search for "Bushitler" just on DU and came up with ten pages of hits. Just on DU. The first one to come up is just a list of Bush as Hitler commentary pieces: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

If you're trying to prove that we didn't compare Bush to Hitler (including 'stache pictures), my oh my! how you'll fail.

Sorry.

But if you're trying to do something else (which I don't get), please clarify.

11. To clarify
The pictures she posted were cropped as to not really tell, i.e. landmarks and such except for the one with a "Capitol like" building in the background.This particular right wing talk show host usually follows in suit with whatever Malkin is talking about so I knew she had to have "tweaked" them some how. But after reading the responses it looks like I don't have much of a case to prove her wrong. Thanks for checking it out for me guys and giving me your opinions!

3. Qualitative rebuttle is your only option...
We said Bush was Hitler after he seized upon 9/11 like the Reichstag fire to shove through a bunch of restrictions on personal liberty, expanded the police state, and embraced nationalism to drive us into a preemptive war, using the same justifications as Hitler.

They called Obama Hitler because he wants all Americans to be able to go to the doctor.


See teh case against Bush here where the 14 points of fascism are ticked off one by one:

4. The Bush family has a long history with Nazi's
The present administration, not so much! Ergo, comparison of Bush to Hitler are far more valid then the current round of name calling.
And, many of the current RW leaders are only 1 or 2 degrees of separation from full swastika Nazi's or Klan(which in many ways is the american =)

6. there were always shitloads of bush/hitler signs at the DC and
NYC protests that i went to. there is no debunking to do unless you want to flat out LIE. The accusation is correct. that is why it is stupid for our side to be all *outraged* when we do the exact same thing.

They made me pretty uncomfortable. I didn't like it then, and I don't like it now.

15. I like Prof Eric Dyson's analogy
"it's like an abused woman if she feels she is being abused enough"

Sure, some are going to see and believe what they want to believe.
