Racists! Obama Compared to Two White Guys

Yeah, this is hyperbolic and over the top, but you have to know it is by design. People are talking and writing about it, aren't they?

Of course, Obama is nothing like Hitler or Lenin.

Both of them were demonstrably more competent in promoting their peculiar brands of socialism than the President, and garnered far more support from their countrymen, for a much longer period of time.

At least Hitler and Lenin had the advantage of trying their brands of socialism in a time when there were few examples of the philosophy in practice and even fewer historical failures. Obama has to compete with those that actually understand history and would rather not be doomed to repeat it.

Of course it's by design, and it's doing the job well. The media continues to show how dumb they are. See here.

Unfortunately a plurality of us who had a chance to know better voted for the destruction of the golden goose anyway.

Hitler yes, Stalin, no. Stalin's support came from blackmail and giving sociopaths power just long enough that they could taste and enjoy it, then having a new crop come it. It was terrorist based, and an inheritance, very possibly stolen, from Lenin. Or, something really close to that.

Obama? Quota's can't do what it takes real atheist men to do.

Doh, you did say Lenin. Scratch that. Though, to a degree, he used terror in the back rooms of politics too, just not so widely in the general public quite as in depth. Still, he did murder 200,000 Catholics almost immediately, so... He was not slouch at terror.

...Except for the minor detail that fascism & Nazism weren't socialist ideologies. Communism and Fascism are both Statist, and they're both totalitarian, but they are opposites in as many ways as they are similar.

Cue someone quoting Jonah Goldberg in 3... 2...
