Skip to comments.Lawmaker compares Obama to Hitler: Arizona Rep. Brenda Barton angry over shutdown
Posted on 10/08/2013 10:42:46 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Republican Rep. Brenda Barton of Payson compared President Barack Obama to Adolph Hitler on her Facebook page Monday in a post urging county sheriffs to revoke authority from the National Parks Service thugs who are enforcing the federal shutdown on national parks lands.
Someone is paying the National Park Service thugs overtime for their efforts to carry out the order of De Fuhrer where are our Constitutional Sheriffs who can revoke the Park Service Rangers authority to arrest??? Do we have any Sheriffs with a pair? she wrote.
Fuhrer is a German term for leader that is most often associated with Hitler.

Well, I don’t know about the Sheriffs being able to revoke arrest powers of Federal agents on Federal lands. However, how many jails are there in the national parks? Not many, I’d bet.
So they might be able to arrest people, but they won’t have any where to put those people if the Sheriffs and local police do not allow them to use our jails. I don’t think Federal penitentiaries will be interested in helping either.
De Fuhrer, Dear Leader; Obamao... Whatever. It all works for me.
I’m guessing by now the goons at Facebook have already deleted her comments.
It really ticks me off when people compare Obama to Hitler.
He is much more like Mussolini. (though his followers are much like Hitler’s followers)
Or Salvador Allende.
Godwin’s Law, you lose, thanks for playing.
except in this case it works
Godwin’s law only apples to democrats losing an argument
*Godwins Law, you lose, thanks for playing.*
Yes, but is Godwin to be invoked when the comparison is accurate?

Yup. She’s right, and probably has more steel in her spine than most of her male peers.
While some might think Godwin’s law is some sort of insightful observation, it is merely a restatement of the fact that any normalized cumulative distribution function tends monotonically towards unity as the number of samples increases. It’s cute... but devoid of any non-trivial meaningful content.
I like it. Its catchy, timely and ACCURATE.
I hate when he does the mussolini face with his chin up and the mouth frown.
She has been getting roasted on the local Phoenix tv stations this morning. I mean, calling her stupid, saying she s/b arrested, stuff like that. And that’s from the smiling local talking heads after they run the report from some other ‘reporter”.
I don’t believe Godwin’s law applies when the argument is being lost due to cognitive dissonance on the part of the party it is being applied to.
The term Hitlereque is becoming less and less of an exaggeration
Exactly right. The state and local authorities can make life miserable for those Rangers that are “Just doing their job” if they had any leadership that had a spine.
The lefties who’ve been calling Republicans every sort of name are just outraged.
Hypocrisy is just a means to an end for them. Never mind all the other sins.
Will this Republican stand firm or apologize...
Waiting for her act of contrition.
Der Fuhrer is not to be mocked.
Calling Sheriff Joe Arpaio
It’s not accurate. Unless Obama’s instituted a new program I wasn’t aware about, of sending millions of people to death camps.
Comparisons to Hitler are guaranteed to get you dismissed as a crackpot.
Nah; Hitler was nicer.
He is like Hitler in the early stages.
Given enough time he might very well do death camps (he's already forcing abortion pills on insurance companies and has already instituted Death Panels in HHS).
Ever heard of the Affordable Care Act?
Bush got compared to Hitler numerous times and no such criticism ensued. Even the German press made such a comparison.
Yes, Bush got compared to Hitler all the time, because that’s what Lefties do, because they’re childish and immature.
I don’t think we should be doing that. It minimizes and dilutes the true horror that Nazism was. In my mind, someone really has to go over the top to a true level of evil, like an Idi Amin, Bin Laden, or Assad before you should make that comparison.
Me too. Hitler never won an election.
Fuhrer is a German term for; "leader", "guide", "guidebook", "driver, "operator", "commander", "head", "pilot", or "father".
When translating German it is necessary to remember that nouns may have multiple meanings and that translations must be based on context to avoid subtle shifts in meaning.
Obama and Hitler are completely different. One is a socialist petty tyrant who hates Jews and Americans and doesn’t care how much damage his policies do to the country he has adopted and then through questionable means gained ultimate power over. The other was a socialist petty tyrant who hated Jews and homosexuals and didn’t care how much damage his policies did to the country he had adopted and then through questionable means gained ultimate power over. They are totally different, especially the contrast between past tense and present tense.
*Its not accurate. Unless Obamas instituted a new program I wasnt aware about, of sending millions of people to death camps.

He seems to be planning for millions to live in misery under Obamacare and many will be asked to take the pill.
His mysterious charisma is like Hitler’s, he has the IRS set up to enforce his nasty business, he’s against Israel and Christians, he has his own symbol, he wanted to have a large paramilitary youth under his control equal to the military, he doesn’t care what the rest of the government or the People say, he will do things his way.
He’s not exactly like Hitler (yet), but it’s difficult to deny that there are a few similarities.
*Who am I? *
Hard to tell.....
Two fellows fit the description
Godwin’s Law isn’t a law at all. What happens when you’re talking about real fascists? Who can you compare them to?
Keep in mind that via the media and government schooling communism, which killed just as ruthlessly and far more people, got a pass.
Why is being called a Nazi worse than being called a communist or a socialist?
No question. Valerie Jarrett.
The folks working behind the counter at the 7-11 ?
I thought Biden cleared that up.
