Lots of people have, understandably, been scrutinizing President Obama and his various decisions and policy moves since becoming President. But one GOP group in Maryland has taken it a little too far. Joyce Thoman, president of the Republican Women of Anne Arundel County posted a letter on the group’s website stating that Obama and Hitler have a lot in common. Yes, Hitler. Last time I checked, comparing anyone to a guy who orchestrated the genocide of 6 million Jews is just not kosher.
Here are other choice pieces from her letter.
“Obama and Hitler have a great deal in common in my view. Obama and Hitler use the “blitzkrieg” method to overwhelm their enemies. FAST, CARPET BOMBING intent on destruction.”
Oh wait, I totally get her argument now. Financial bailouts and pushing for everyone to have affordable healthcare and a smaller carbon footprint? That is obviously a lot like the relentless bombing that pummeled huge tracts of Europe.
“Let’s start a blitzkrieg of our own. Shut down the Capitol switchboards and the White House switchboards!”
Call away, lady. Call away.
“Say NO to the Obamination of Obama Care!”
This letter is oozing with a new level of ignorance. I hope everyone takes it as just that—radical right-wing propaganda, done in bad taste. I don’t care if you support Obama or not—there is no reason to compare the man to one of the most disgusting humans to ever live.
