On The Left Hand...What Comes Around, Etc.

I've been thinking about the striking similarity of the tactics, phrases and comparisons I've been noticing in today's "political debate." "Protest is patriotic" was a slogan on display during the Bush years. I saw pictures from the recent Tea Party rallies with the same phrase on it. Bush and Hitler comparison where big during the Bush years. The post below this post will shows some pictures comparing Obama and Hitler that are from the Tea Party rallies last week. Do you suppose the Right has accidentally come up with these phrases and Obama-Hitler comparisons accidentally? Could it be that protesters in the United States aren't very creative?

Along with the Bush-Hitler pictures below, I've included some comparisons by liberal opinionators comparing Bush and Hitler. Nazis, communists, socialists, whatever...was there ever a time when our President was an American trying to the best to make his vision of America come true? Probably not...

"...Neither Hitler nor Bush could have effected their radical plans without a party full of functionaries and a compliant national media, of course. Hitler relied on his “Nazi” party, a word derived from the name of his National Socialist organization. He had a brilliant individual named Joseph Goebbels to control the Reich Propaganda Ministry and rally the public behind Nazi policies. Bush relied on his “Nozi” party, a word derived from “Zionism,” with the first four letters Z-i-o-n remixed into N-o-z-i. He had a brilliant cartel of Zionists to control the American Mainstream Media and rally the public behind Nozi policies..."

"...From the Third Reich, Bush learned how to exploit "terrorism" to consolidate his dictatorship. Bush is on the Hitler end of the political spectrum opposing the very principles of our founding. What Bush knows he most surely learned by way of his Grandfather's old trading partner --Adolf Hitler. Hitler's Lesson Number he summed up himself in one sentence.

"Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death."

--Adolf Hitler

Bush learned how to rule ruthlessly. Hitler never got more than 37 percent of the vote in several elections called over a short period of time ending with an act of terrorism that Hitler would exploit to consolidate his dictatorship. That act was the Reichstag Fire, Hitler's 911..."

"The 2004 election--which Karl Rove's Nazi thugs stole for Bush II--revealed that many American citizens are as intellectually and morally debased as the Germans in the 1930s. Such incompetence and ignorance always lead to tyranny. The United States is exactly at the same point in national degradation as the German nation in the 1930s when Hitler assumed absolute power and began his regime of mass murder and war crimes against the people of the world.

We've been conditioned to see Germany under Hitler as an unquestionably horrible example of dictatorial tyranny and inhuman barbarity--and to see our present American culture as completely opposite to that of Nazi Germany. And we like to think that if a tyranny such as that in Germany under the Nazi regime were present and growing in America we'd unquestionably be able to see it.

So it's a shock when we realize: most people living in Nazi Germany didn't see the tyranny! They thought it was the best time of their lives!"
