Gotta wonder if the Bushits are plagurizing Geobbels
Others here have probably seen these here on DU, but for those of you who haven't you'll probably be as surprised as I at the incredible similarity between the following quotes of Bush and Geobbels. I wonder what the statistical probability is that these statements could have happened by mere chance.

Did Goebbells Write The Bush Administrations speeches?

From an address to a joint session of the US Congress: President George W. Bush.

"Americans are asking ``Why do they hate us?'' They hate what they see right here in this chamber: a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other." George W. Bush, 20 September, 2001

From Goebbels' New Year address to Germany

They hate our people because it is decent, brave, industrious, hardworking and intelligent. They hate our views, our social policies, and our accomplishments. They hate us as a Reich and as a community. They have forced us into a struggle for life and death. We will defend ourselves accordingly. All is clear between us and our enemies. Goebbels 31 December 1939

Perle, policy advisor to G.W. Bush, 2001

"No stages. This is total war. We are fighting a variety of enemies. There are lots of them out there. All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq, then we take a look around and see how things stand. That is entirely the wrong way to go about it ... If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely, and we don't try to ... piece together clever diplomatic solutions ... but just wage a total war against these tyrants, I think we will do very well. Our children will sing great songs about us years from now." ---

- Richard Perle, policy advisor to G.W. Bush, 2001

Joseph Goebbels, 1943

So total war is the demand of the hour. We must put an end to the bourgeois attitude which we have also seen in this war: Wash my back, but don't get me wet! The danger facing us is enormous. The efforts we take to meet it must be just as enormous. The time has come to remove the gloves! We must use our fists now! There is no excuse for only superficially and carelessly making use of the war potential at home and throughout Europe. We must use the full resources, as quickly and thoroughly as it is organizationally and practically possible. Unnecessary concern is wholly out of place. The future of Europe hangs on our success in the East! We are ready to defend it! The German people are shedding their most valuable blood in this battle. The rest of Europe should at least work to support us. Those who do not understand this fight today will thank us on bended knee tomorrow that we took it!

- Joseph Goebbels, 1943

2. We're not allowed to talk about the Bushies-Nazis similarities....
That is just soooo "over the top", you know. It might even be "beyond the pale". Even though the little fascist asshole in the White House is doing an uncanny Hitler imitation, it is not to be discussed. That is the word from the repuke apologists and the media whores, so stop saying that!

4. Most text editors have a "compare two files" thing

Or you can just open them both and tile vertically.

5. If you are collecting, here's another
From "Berlin Diary: The Journal of a Foreign Correspondent, 1934-
1941" William L. Shirer

August 10, 1939:

"How completely isolated a world the German(American) people live in. A glance at the newspapers yesterday and today reminds you of it. Whereas all the rest of the world considers that the peace is about to be broken by Germany (America), that it is Germany(America) that is threatening to attack Poland (Iraq) over Danzig (WMD), here in Germany (America), in the world the local newspapers create, the very reverse is being maintained. (Not that it surprises me, but when you are away for a while, you forget.) What the Nazi papers are proclaming is this: that it is Poland (Iraq) which is disturbing the peace of Europe; Poland (Iraq) which is threatening Germany(America) with armed invasion, and so forth. ..."



... But the German (American), people can't possibly believe these lies? Then you talk to them. So many do. But so far the press limits itself to Danzig(WMD). ... Any fool knows they don't give a damn about Danzig(WMD). It's just a pretext.

Berlin, August 31, 1939 (morning)
Everybody against the war. People talking openly. How can a country go into a major war with a population so dead against it? People also kicking about being kept in the dark. A German said to me alst night: "We know nothing. Why don't they tell us what's up?" ...
