This is the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack H. Obama II.
This is Adolf Hitler, Chancellor and dictator of Germany from 1933-1945.
Hank, note some of the major differences between the two men. Hitler shares your ethnic background for starters and led one of the most brutal dictatorships in modern history. He was elected to power by people who looked and thought like you.
One of the more annoying traits of conservafools is to paint liberals as harboring an affinity for totalitarianism when it is you conservafools who not only admire dictators, you role model them in your political behavior and governance style.
See Scott Walker in Wisconsin and John Kasich in Ohio for examples.
Adolf Hitler is often used by you so called ‘Christian’ conservatives as an example of what happens to
a society when traditional Christian moral and social values are abandoned. In
reality, one of the reasons why Hitler was so popular with and was elected with widespread support of conservative
Christians in Germany
was precisely because he promised to restore traditional morality.
The former Catholic altar boy opposed
abortion, homosexuality, pornography, and just about everything else
conservative Christians complained were ruining modern Germany.
Hmm, sounds like a certain 21st century political party in the USA But I digress, Hank.
Hitler was an outstanding speaker and made speeches with lines like this.:
Today Christians … stand at the head of [this country]…
I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy
Christianity .. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit …
We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the
theater, and in the press – in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered
into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during the past … (few) years.
– Adolf Hitler, quoted in: The Speeches
of Adolf Hitler, 1922-1939, Vol. 1 (London, Oxford University Press, 1942),
“Secular schools can never be tolerated because such schools
have no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a
religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and
religion must be derived from faith.”
Adolf Hitler, in 26 April 1933,
from a speech made during negotiations leading to the Nazi-Vatican Concordant
There is a road to freedom. Its milestones are Obedience,
Endeavor, Honesty, Order, Cleanliness, Sobriety, Truthfulness, Sacrifice, and
love of the Fatherland.
– Message, signed Hitler, painted on walls of concentration camps; Life, August
Woman’s world is her husband, her family, her children and
her home. We do not find it right when she presses into the world of men.
– Adolf Hitler, quoted in Lucy Komisar, The
The fight against syphilis demands a fight against
prostitution, against prejudices, old habits, against previous conceptions, general
views among them not least the false prudery of certain circles. The first
prerequisite for even the moral right to combat these things is the
facilitation of earlier marriage for the coming generation. In late marriage
alone lies the compulsion to retain an institution which, twist and turn as you
like, is and remains a disgrace to humanity, an institution which is damned
ill-suited to a being who with his usual modesty likes to regard himself as the
‘image’ of God.
– Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. 1
Parallel to the training of the body a struggle against the
poisoning of the soul must begin. Our whole public life today is like a
hothouse for sexual ideas and simulations. Just look at the bill of fare served
up in our movies, vaudeville and theaters, and you will hardly be able to deny
that this is not the right kind of food, particularly for the youth…Theater,
art, literature, cinema, press, posters, and window displays must be cleansed
of all manifestations of our rotting world and placed in the service of a
moral, political, and cultural idea.
– Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. 1
While both denominations maintain missions in Asia and
Africa in order to win new followers for their doctrine — an activity which
can boast but very modest success compared to the advance of the Mohammedan
faith in particular — right here in Europe they lose millions and millions of
inward adherents who either are alien to all religious life or simply go their
own ways. The consequences, particularly from a moral point of view, are not
– Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. 1
A Volkisch state
must therefore begin by raising marriage from the level of a continuous
defilement of the race, and give it the consecration of an institution which is
called upon to produce images of the Lord and not monstrosities halfway between
man and ape.
– Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf Vol. 2
Last time I checked Hank, since the November 4, 2008 election and his January 20, 2009 inauguration, President Obama did not use his majority to concentrate powers to the executive branch of government.
We have not seen his political opponents like John Boehner or Eric Cantor arrested and dragged off to jail. The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts haven’t been shut down to form Obama Youth groups.
The Tea Klux Klan rallies in DC weren’t broken up by the police.
We have not had Fox Noise and your right wing radio loudmouths shut down for broadcasting lies 24-7-365 about the POTUS, nor was Orly Taitz arrested for pimping that birther nonsense.
And oh yeah, the Republicans got control of the House no thanks to the Tea Klux Klan in the last midterm election.
So where is this mysterious Obama dictatorship that you paranoid right wingers speak of?.
I submit the USA was closer to it under the mispresidency of George W. Bush, in which we disgustingly met the 14 characteristics for a fascist state.
1. Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism. (CHECK)
2. Disdain for the importance of human rights. (CHECK)
3. Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause. (CHECK)
4. The supremacy of the military/avid militarism. (CHECK)
5. Rampant sexism. (CHECK)
6. A controlled mass media. (CHECK)
7. Obsession with national security. (CHECK)
8. Religion and ruling elite tied together. (CHECK)
9. Power of corporations protected. (CHECK)
10. Power of labor suppressed or eliminated. (CHECK)
11. Disdain and suppression of intellectuals and the arts. (CHECK)
12. Obsession with crime and punishment. (CHECK)
13. Rampant cronyism and corruption. (CHECK)
14. Fraudulent elections. (CHECK)
Hank, your problem and the conservative movement’s problem is that the 44th president of the United States got elected in a landslide, and y’all have a major problem with the fact that he’s African American.on top of that.
You also have a major problem with the fact he was successfully rolling back every wrongheaded policy you fools put in place during the Bush years.
NAACP founder W.E.B DuBois called it over a century ago when he said. “Either the United States will destroy ignorance or ignorance will destroy the United States.”
If you really wish to know what life was like under the Nazi dictatorship, get thee hence to a Holocaust museum near you or the national one in Washington DC across the street from the Smithsonian.
You conservafools reek of bigotry, hatred, paranoia and ignorance and your unhinged racist hatred of President Obama is off the charts.
Hank, you and your right wing friends are entitled to your political allegiances and opinions, but you are not entitled to your own facts, especially when they don’t square with the historical record.
