Aargh. 4 to 8 more years of stupid Hitler comparisons.
And the ones from the right are even stupider and more egregious than the ones from the left- which I also thought were pretty fucking stupid. These comparisons show limited imagination: It's simply the worst insult that people can toss out there.

6. I don't like the stupid ones either. However we need to understand history
If you were to follow the rise of power of the nazi party and more importantly if you were to examine their execution of policy you would find striking similarities to recent, and even current, events in this country. I can give you an example if you like but if I do and you pay any attention to the news at all you'll find it going on right now.

12. It's because I know history, and I'm well versed in that particular
period that I know the comparisons are bullshit. One can eke out points of comparison between any two periods of history, but for various reasons, the comparison of bushco's tenure to Hitler's are simply off the mark. By the standards people are using to make that comparison, it's just as valid to compare FDR to Hitler or Johnson of Nixon. It's just sloppy and lazy.

7. Who's comparing you to Hitler?
Maybe a little Mussolini, but you are no Hitler.

As long as there isn't any fish in the sauce.

And a nice green salad and some bread. Along with a glass of Chianti.

10. I,for one,will make no apolgies
for making nazi comparisons for the last eight years.
When there is documented historical evidense of bush family connections to the third reich,even when we were at war with them,when there is documented evidence that the bush famiy assisted in bringing nazi war criminals into the goverment of the US,when the bush family implements or espouses policies that are remeniscient of nazi policies,well,imo, it is fair to say they are nazis.
And if I see Obama following the same path you had better believe I am going to call him out also.

13. I make no apologies either
OK...maybe Bush wasn't like Hitler. But I do believe our government, under Bush, did come frighteningly close to trying to make this quote by Hermann Goering a reality:


Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.


I believe the Bush administration tried to turn Americans against modern day Muslims just as Hitler used the Jews as his own personal scapegoats. For some reason, the campaign against Muslims/Arabs didn't work on a wide scale, maybe owing to the presence of the Internet and independent websites and blogs that did NOT "catapult the propaganda".

Naturally the American people don't want war; neither in Afghanistan, nor in Iraq, nor in Iran. That's understood. But after all, I am the decider of the country, I determine policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it's a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the decider. That's easy. All you have to do is to tell them they've been attacked, and denounce the left for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.

Not that the jug-eared little fuck could string together that many words coherently.
