After World War 1, the German people felt discouraged and shamed. They believed they were the laughingstock of the world.
After President George W. Bush left office, many American people felt discouraged and shamed. They believed they were the laughingstock of the world.
Hitler and the Nazis promised to help “der Volk”, the people, the common man.
Barack Obama promised to help “the people”, the common man.
Hitler and the Nazis looked to Fascist European countries like Spain and Italy as role models.
Barack Obama looks to Europe as a role model.
Hitler and the Nazis promoted race and class division among Germans. Using propaganda via their media, they branded Jewish people as monsters.
Barack Obama promotes class and race division among Americans. Using propaganda via their media, they branded Republicans, the Tea Party and Conservatives as racist, violent monsters.
Hitler was backed by the unions (the Workers Party of Germany).
Barack Obama is backed by the unions.
Hitler promoted radical ideas (such as rights violations, violence against others and genocide) by changing public perception via the media.
Barack Obama promotes radical ideas (late term abortion, illegal immigration, gay marriage) by changing public perception via the media.
Hitler and the Nazis gave der Volk a scapegoat, and promised “hope and change” with rants about past glories and myths about their ancestors.
Barack Obama gave the American people a scapegoat—namely President Bush–and promised “hope and change” with rants about past Progressive glories and myths about our Founders.
Hitler preached hatred of the intellectual “elites”, worship of the past, emotional outbursts of nationalism, and religious fundamentalists.
Barack Obama preaches hatred of the intellectual “elites”, worship of the past, emotional outbursts of nationalism, and religious fundamentalists.
Hitler and the Nazis wanted absolute control over der Volk’s lives.
Hitler used propaganda to make it appear they were making progress. Unemployment in Germany seemed much better under Hitler’s rule—but only because they prohibited many people from actually working, including women and Jews, which made their unemployment numbers seem much lower than they actually were. German men were forced to work for the government/military, but most of those jobs were lost in peacetime. Oh—and they also invaded wealthy countries like Austria and Poland for a little extra cash…
The Obama administration uses propaganda to make it appear they are making progress. Their unemployment numbers are exaggerated, and of course the economic problems are continually blamed on the Bush administration.
Hitler, the Nazis and now the Obama administration realized their techniques had worked throughout the ages in persuading poor and working class people to enthusiastically vote for policies that would take resources away from the wealthy. They knew that by doing so, they would be able to turn the working class majority against the unpopular “elitist” minority. The poor, working class people believed that somehow, by pulling down the wealthiest, it would elevate the poorest.
To quote Barack Obama, to “level the playing field.”
And just like Hitler and the Nazis, the way the Obama administration seems to want to level that playing field is by maintaining absolute control over American’s lives via things like Obamacare—in which they literally control American’s lives and deaths; food supplies; cap and trade—controlling energy (gasoline, oil, coal); finance reform act—in which they control your money/banking– and finally, the destruction of the private sector jobs (the Evil Wealthy). So in the end, you will need the government for, well, everything—food, transportation, health care, education, jobs…
We’ve got to stop this, folks. Fascism, Socialism and Communism have never worked for anyone on earth. Despite her early glories, even Rome fell.
No person or country is infallible; we’ve got to stop pretending we are.
We’ve got to make sure Barack Obama, his administration and his wealthy Socialist/Communist-leaning friends don’t run our country any further into the ground.
