Bush similar to Hitler? Oh slander, oh perfidy!

The GOP and its mouthpieces are screaming wildly and painfully at the calumny of comparisons between Bush and Hitler. How Dare They!?! How dare they slander the president and/or any of his cronies?

Well, this may be a good opportunity to check out a long-held theory of mine, that you can find out exactly what THEY are doing by paying attention to the barbs and accusations they throw at THE OTHER GUYS -- because it's always what THEY are doing themselves.


Glen Beck of Clear Channel Radio compared Fahrenheit 9/11 to "the [Joseph] Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda, where they would take truths, half-truths, and out-and-out lies and mix them all together."

Tucker Carlson compared Democrats to Nazis, dissing "Democrats who keep track of racial data more assiduously than Himmler ever did."

Bill O'Reilly compared [Michael] Moore to Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels: "I believe that he [Michael Moore] has power now. He has more power than probably anybody else other than Kerry and Edwards. It's scary. It's scary. You know this happened in Nazi Germany. ... Who was the most powerful person in Nazi Germany other than Hitler and Himmler and Goering, who? You guys know? ... Goebbels. The propaganda minister. That frightens me when truth no longer exists, gentlemen. It doesn't exist for Michael Moore, it doesn't."

Oh, yeah -- O'Reilly also compared Michael Moore and Al Franken to Goebbels and Hollywood celebrities to the Nazi faithful.

Michael Savage, foam-flecked radio ranter who invented his own credentials with nonexistent academic degrees, used Nazi military titles for Democratic leaders, such as "Obergrupenführer Clinton," "Grupenführer Carter," and "Brigadeführer Daschle."

Oh, and he also called Planned Parenthood President Gloria Feldt "the president of planned deathhood action fund" and compared her to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

And again: "And yet John Edwards has the nerve to say that he fought for the little guy by fighting HMOs and insurance companies. It's utterly -- It's a big lie. It's absolutely a Goebbels lie that if you tell a big lie often enough it becomes the truth. It's the absolute opposite of what he did."

And once more: Savage compared philanthropist George Soros [a Hungarian-born Jew who lived through the Nazi occupation of Budapest] to "Hitler's media man" -- in reference to Hitler's Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels -- and repeatedly called Soros "Goebbels".

So who's pointing the "Hitler finger" at whom around here?

As to smearing for the sake of smearing, here's a current ongoing demonstration of pathology --Jerome Corsi who co-authored the book Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out attacking Kerry really has an attitude a mile long. For example:

• Corsi on Catholicism: "Boy buggering in both Islam and Catholicism is okay with the Pope as long as it isn't reported by the liberal press"

• Corsi on "John F*ing Commie Kerry": "After he married TerRAHsa, didn't John Kerry begin practicing Judiasm? He also has paternal grandparents that were Jewish. What religion is John Kerry?"

And in the miscellaneous category of pure bilious hate: Too bad the plane didn't crash into the TV set of the NBC show "THE LEFT WING" -- especially when Martin Sheen was "acting."

(And oh, you have heard, have you not, that NONE of the Swift Boat Vietnam Vets quoted in the book actually served with Kerry on his boat.)

As to liberal darts of Hitlerocity thrown at Bush and his henchmen, the usual disclaimer is invalid. There is no holocaust, and no one is saying there is, or at least only a mini-one among the thousands and tens of thousands of dead Iraqis, so it's important to stop thinking anyone is saying that. And it's not just a "compare him to the most horrible person you can think of" either. There are some possibly valid comparisons to think about:

Both took a shot at world domination. Both fell pathetically short, but only after inflicting untold amounts of suffering on the locals who were in the way.

Both thought it ok to invade other countries for the same reason Sir Edmund Hillary climbed Mount Everest. ("Because it's there.")

Both managed to get the entire world pissed off at and unified against them.

Both moved forcefully to institutionalize the merger between corporate and state, with the state jumping to the commands of the corporations. In days of yore, that was called Fascism and/or National Socialism (N.A.Z.I.).

Both were chartacteristically vindictive toward anyone who disagreed with them.

One big difference between the two -- both of Bush's grandfathers were Nazi sympathizers and supporters, selling bonds for Hitler to pay for the munitions used against Allied and USA military until congress made them stop in Fall of 1942, some 10 months after we were at war with Germany. As far as we know, Hitler's family were NOT pro-Nazi.

Oh, one other comparison -- both were semi-literate hypocritical soulless pricks who rose to power as the tools of the big boys, spouting slogans of patriotism.

So perhaps the question is, do we want any of these people and/or their pals anywhere near the corridors of power? Do we want them to have access to authority over our lives? I don't think so.
