Before the Holocaust in which Hitler was responsible for the murder of six million Jews, before the concentration camps and the crematoria, before the incalculable death and destruction caused by World War II which Hitler initiated, before the racist and anti-Semitic laws that led to Kristalnacht, before the launching by Hitler of the German totalitarian Nazi State that conquered most of Europe, Hitler was viewed by most of the world as just another secular socialist.
In fact, a decade before he had assumed power after a peaceful election, Hitler had already seen how his socialist ideological cousins in Russia, Lenin and Stalin, had liquidated millions of their own precieved enemies with nary a mention from the New York Times or much notice from the world's liberal elite. In fact, Lenin and Stalin were hailed by many liberals back then as "progressive" and still are in some quarters.
No, Barack Obama is not like Hitler in that he would never initiate any of the above and no, Obama is not a racist or an anti-Semite but his opponent for the presidency, Senator John McCain, has now accuratly called him a Socialist. And even though Obama is not like Hitler in the real sense, their are nevertheless certain distinct similarities between the two in terms of style and an approach to socialism in general and these factors have been alien to American politics and culture until now. Obama's campaign and personality posesses a more than subtle whiff of fascism.
Examples abound. Hitler held massive rallies that employed various forms of sensory enhancements such as bonfires, strobelights, music, and hypnotic styles of speech that seemed to cause a mass trance according to many eyewitnesses at the time. Obama seems to have a similar effect on the unprecedented crowds who flock to his public speeches and who appear to be in an almost trance-like state. Hitler promised to change the world, to create a new social order and to go after the allegedly wealthy Jews who he claimed were responsible for the suffering of the average German. Obama employs some of the same utopian us against them rhetoric when he talks about taxing the rich.
Hitler created a Gestapo, a national police force that would crack down on a dis-armed and defenceless population at will. In a speech he delivered at Colorado Springs on July 2, 2008, Obama called for a national police force. In that speech he said: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
Hitler rose to power with the help of several disreputable men who shared his socialistic outlook and worldview. Obama was aided up the ratline by the racist and anti-Semitic Reverend Wright, the terrorist William Ayers and the corrupt convicted Chicago criminal Tony Rezko among others.
Hitler used the excuse of the Reichtag fire, in which the German Parleament was burned about a month after he came to power, to suspend the German constitution and to declare Martial Law. Obama's Vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden has made dark references to an impending international incident that will test Obama six months after he becomes president. Biden said: "Watch. We're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. And he's going to need help . . . it's not going to be apparent that we're right."
Like the socialistic Nazis and Communists before him, Obama is a hyper-nationalist. He believes that, with an "enlightened" leadership, the State can change society and therefore the State has a right to "spread the wealth" around. In other words, the state has a moral claim to decide how to dispose of the proprerty of the private citizen through confiscatory taxation.
Obama is like a hologram, a light that eminates from an unknown location and then creates a beautiful illusion. Since so little is actually known about him, and this apparently even includes exactly where he was born, the average citizen, having been convinced that life is so miserable that some sort of a change is needed, will project their own beliefs and values onto the tabula rasa that is Obama. Never before has this society allowed such a demogogue to get so close to the presidency.
No I think he’ll turn out more like Saddam. Hitler was pretty much pure evil - I don’t think Oboza or Saddam were pure evil - just Sunnis
Not even going to read it—already know it’s a “yes.”
I’m thinking more Mussolini, myself.
Obama's mentor on politics and patriotism, the communist and terrorist Bill Ayers.
But before they load the trains and buses, they have to disarm us. I'm betting they would run out of jackboots before we'd run out of deer rifles.
Hitler was a piker.
The only important difference between Nazi-ism, Fascism,
Communism, Socialism and Liberalism is the spelling, and
that the last group hasn’t got the brains to figure it out.

I would add Islamo-Fasciam to the above quote.
No. I thinks he’s like Hugo Chavez. He’s got the same arrogance too.
Anyone who would support allowing a baby to die without help or comfort in a dirty linen closet is like hitler. They have no soul.
When you read about saddam filming torture and executions and then enjoying them over and over with a fine cigar and drink, that is pure evil.
Fortunately, the clothe that these 3 are cut from is small compared to the whole of human population.
Stop Obama! His concentration camps/ reeducation camps won't be humanitarian.
There are many similarities. One must agree, if you have eyes, ears and an IQ above moron, and can read as well....in my opinion, they have another similarity. Neither one of them were/are U.S. citizens that could qualify to run for President of the U.S.A.
The list goes on.
I think that deep down, he’s closer to Robert Mugabe. His wife is certainly a Winnie Mandela wanna-be.
These people are monsters, and they must not be allowed to acquire the absolute power the ydesire.
Im thinking more Mussolini, myself.
No bad moustache?
No, Hitler was smarter and wrote his own books.
