You know, conservatives have had a lot of fun depicting President Obama as a modern-day Hitler.
Here’s how Thomas Sowell put it back in 2008:
To find anything comparable to crowds’ euphoric reactions to Obama, you would have to go back to old newsreels of German crowds in the 1930s, with their adulation of their fuehrer, Adolf Hitler. With hindsight, we can look back on those people with pity, knowing now how many of them would be led to their deaths by the man they idolized.
Now the Left is getting in on the act. This photo comes from the Facebook group 1 billion against indefinite detention without trial law:
Don’t mistake me for someone who favors this law, which would allow for indefinite detention of U.S. citizens and gives far too much power to our military at a time when our military has proven that it is not to be trusted. More than once.
But come on, dudes. The rhetoric of the Right is dangerous. It’s hate-mongering propaganda. And it’s a terribly unethical way to go about working for change. The Left is better than this. It must be better than this.
Relatedly, did you know that Obama is literally Hitler?
