I would quibble with some of the historical details of the early days of the Nazi era as presented in the letter, but the gist of it is correct. The most authoratative source is probably still William Shirer's The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich
. Shirer was a US correspondent stationed in Berlin during that time frame, so he saw things up close and personal.
There are definitely some eery parallels between the current regime in the US and the Nazis in their early days of power in Germany. Still, I don't think that the American people will acquiesce to Obamination anywhere near as easily as the Germans did to Hitler.

Thanks. I know you saw the cartoon on the 1934 Cartoon thread.
