LOL! another Liberal Amnesia thread.

Its quaint. Not very charming but it is good for a laugh.

Its like all the liberals were asleep for their entire lives and all the sudden Bammer becomes president and they wake up and recognize for the first time ever that a president isn’t getting a free pass…

Consider this “just deserts”

You sorry suckers might ought to rethink your venom the next time your ‘team’ is out of power.

4. Wrong- see #3 above. villifying the rich was a key point for Hitler as well as Obama. Much of his hatred toward the Jews was fueled by this concept.
"Yes, we can!" That's a slogan. What did it mean?
So now you drag out a link that compares liberals to Hitler! Too hilarious!
Class warfare? Hitler and the Nazis wanted to give Germans dignity and take back what they felt belonged to them.

It's 'Führer', with an 'Umlaut' on the 'u' (here to help )

As to that I can not judge, not living in the US. Fact is, Nazi youth indoctrination was widespread, organised, and advertised. I fail to see similarities to the US and Obama.

No, again, he didn't:

Naturschutz im Nationalsozialismus

It's in german, so you might not be able to read it. An excerpt:

In der Praxis hielt das NS-Regime sich nicht an den anfangs gesetzlich vorgezeichneten Weg eines umfassenden Naturschutzes. Nach der Übernahme der Verantwortung für die Erfüllung des Vierjahresplanes durch Hermann Göring, stand die Autarkiepolitik zu Lasten des Naturschutzes im Vordergrund. Man betrieb eine umfassende Naturzerstörung durch Melioration, Autobahnbau, die Intensivierung der Waldnutzung sowie den Bau von Industrie- und militärischen Anlagen.[2] Große Kritik durch Naturschützer erfuhr die vom Arbeitsdienst betriebene Kultivierung von Ödland. Die Übernutzung der ökologischen Ressourcen durch den abrupten Übergang zur Autarkie, bei ineffizienter Nutzung mangels wirtschaftlichen Strukturwandel, wurde zu einem Motiv der Eroberung neuen Lebensraumes.[3]

Put it through babelfish or something similar, should give you a general idea. It explicitely states that the NSDAP did everything but guard the environment.

Wrong. Quote from the manual of the DAF (Deutsche Arbeitsfront/german work front) by Hitler himself: "Der Nationalsozialismus hat den Klassenkampf besiegt" (National socialism has defeated class warfare)

There are numerous other quotes from statutes, speeches and diaries. You can look them up for yourself.

Wrong, the NSDAP was heavily sponsored by leading industrialists, most of which were personal friends of Hitler.

Hitlers hatred of the jews doesn't originate from their perceived wealth.

You claim to have read "Mein Kampf", where this is made relatively clear. Perhaps you need to re-read it.

Hitler gained power by telling a beaten down country what they needed to hear.

Whatever he said doesn't matter because of this:

Auschwitz, Nazi death camp

The only possible thing Hitler has in common with every politician in the world is that he told the people what they wanted to hear. They all do it. But that's where it stops.

Of course they did. They used class warfare, villification of the rich, and redistribution of wealth to rally the citizens to the banner of the Nazis, just like Obama.

Tyrants, like Obama, are always willing to offer treats in exchange for the sacrifice of personal liberty and freedom. Freedom is not for the faint of heart or those with no initiative, as failure will occur. Tyrants, of course, do not care whether someone fails or not, as long as they provide political support (see Obama).

Thumbs down Iowa Tea Party group's sign links Obama with Hitler. Some tea partiers are condemning it.

I think you'd have to be a deranged fool in order to make this comparison.

You've just described the rabid right element of the Tea Party. The teabaggers insist that they're "mainstream Americans" yet they hardly ever condemn this kind of radically skewed hogwash.

Tea Party = retired white guys griping about how tough they've got it.


Wingnuts?

Hmm....an unqualified and charismatic leader rockets to the top political position in the country, at which time he enacts legislation to fundamentally change the country, despite the loud objections of many?

Nahhhhhh...I can't see how such a comparison could be made

I don't like comparisons like this at all. If you want to call him a socialist, make points about his policy that you believe support the point. These comparisons naturally lead to horrific images that are out of line in my opinion.

You notice that some other Tea Party groups condemn it. Not all, but some. So apparently, there are deranged fools running around out there.
