Mindless Conformists Suddenly Decide Comparing President to Hitler is a Bad Thing

I don't know who should take the blame for first comparing an American President to the 20th Century's most infamous genocidal fascist, but there is no doubt at all that the odious comparison was perfected by the drones of the far left during George Bush's Presidency, and nowhere was that on display moreso than in the leftist blogosphere.

It is with a great deal of amusement, then, that I see these same angry children up in arms because Michelle Malkin recently took a picture with a guy holding an Obama sign with a swastika in the middle of the "O."

Just. Grow. Up.

"He hit me back!" isn't a valid defense.

If you're going to spend the better part of eight years calling the President a fascist, don't get all up in arms because someone turns your own symbology against you.

I saw this elsewhere and thought you might find it interesting. Sorry if it seems a little long, it's worth it:

Who am I?

I was raised in one country but my father was born in another. I was not his only child. He fathered several children with a number of women.

I became very close to my mother because my father showed little interest in me. Then my mother died at an early age from cancer. Later in life, questions arose over my real name. My birth records were sketchy and no one was able to produce a reliable birth certificate.

I grew up practicing one faith, but converted to Christianity because this was widely accepted in my country. But I practiced non-traditional beliefs and did not follow mainstream Christianity.

I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and I embarked on a new career.

I wrote a book about my struggles growing up. It was clear to those who read my memoirs that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.

I became active in local politics when I was in my 30's and then burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office when I was in my 40's. I had a virtually non-existent resume, very little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization. Yet I was a powerful speaker who managed to draw incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.

At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy. I was critical of my country in the last war. But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country's economy. I had a plan on how we could do better. I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.

Mine was a people's campaign. I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support. I offered the people the hope that together we could change our country and the world.

I spoke on behalf of the downtrodden including persecuted minorities such as Jews, but my actual views were not widely known until after I became my nation's leader. However; anyone could have easily learned what I really believed if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with. But they did not. Then I became the most powerful man in the world. And then the world learned the truth.

Who am I?

Think you know?

My first name is Adolf.

I think the Nazi thing has been over used, besides I think there is a better historical model for Obama .. Benito Mussolini.

Think of Obama as Il Douche

The amount of hypocrisy is astounding. Especially when you google "bush hitler fascist" by domain.

Now conformity instead of dissent morphs into the highest form of patriotism.

It should also be pointed out that you know who was also a BIG believer in public spending of borrowed money by government to stimulate the economy.

Hilarity on hilarity. Through the miracle of the internets there is an infinite supply of "dissent is patriotic" ammo. But it's not just a matter of tone. Who can deny that the demonstrated Obama vision for America is literally fascistic? What kind of social model has government as the chief investor in all large areas of the economy? "Commanding heights", does that ring any bells? Also, unlike the perpetually slandered Bush, Brother Barack is a demonstrated racist of the most virulent stripe. The only way an Obamian escapes a just tarring as fascists is if they explicitly go through the Left door to outright Communism.

Oh my they are serious. God help us. I tried to comment on all three but surprise! they are closed to comments from those outside the fold. A common tactic on lefty sites. Anyway are they this stupid or just that dishonest?
