My take is that comparing Dean to Hitler is both correct and appropriate, but an entire thread devoted to a Photoshop(tm) image of Dean as Hitler did FR more harm than good.
Note that I included a link in my Post #18 to a web page with just such a Photoshopped image of Dean, but didn't in-line the image in this thread. That was deliberate.
One of the problems with Photoshop is that our enemies (both the left and the jihadists) use Photoshopped images as one tool in their arsenal of weapons against us, against what's good and true. They are then more than happy to provide cover for their deceptive images by pointing out where we use Photoshop as well.
That is, Photoshop is a weapon, just like guns and bombs. We should use our weapons with restraint, but not hesitate to use them as necessary.
Since the primary battleground on which the war against the left is being fought is not military, but propaganda and lies, we need to be especially careful to minimize aiding the enemies efforts to spread deceit and lies by doing the same ourselves.
I also do not like the Nazi references. If anyone today in the U.S. is compared to the Nazis, it devalues the horror of the Nazis.
There really is a valid comparison today. It is the Islamofascists. Give them time and they are this century’s Nazis, or worse.

Not at all the same. The enemy (both DUmocrats and terrorists) use photochopped images to pass off as the truth.
We use the images to make fun of the enemy or to make a point, but never making the attempt to pass off a fabricated image as the real deal.
