Lawmaker compares Obama to Hitler: Arizona Rep. Brenda Barton angry over shutdown
KNXV, ABC 15, Phoenix ^ | 10/07/2013 | Hank Stephenson

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)

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.

A Little History Question "My father was born in another country.
I was not his only child.
He fathered several children with numerous women.
I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.
My mother died at an early age from cancer.
Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father not my mother.
Later in life, questions arose over my real name.
My birth records were sketchy.
No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.
I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and didn't follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.
I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.
That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and embarked on a new career.
I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.
It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.
I became active in local politics in my 30's then, with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s.
They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.
I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.
Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.
I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego.
At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy...
I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized every opportunity to bash my country.
But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country's economy.
I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free.
I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.
It was the free market, banks and corporations.
I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.
I called mine "A People's Campaign". That sounded good to all people.
I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.
I knew that, if I merely offered the people 'hope', together we could change our country and the world.
So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include "persecuted minorities".
My true views were not widely known and I kept them unknown, until after I became my nation's leader.
I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with. I'm glad they didn't.
Then I became the most powerful man in the world.
And the world learned the truth.
Who am I?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Fuhrer is a German term for leader that is most often associated with Hitler...

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.

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.

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?
