A billboard created by an Iowa tea party group comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin is being condemned by other tea party activists.

The sign includes photos of Obama, Nazi leader Hitler and communist leader Lenin with the statement: "Radical leaders prey on the fearful & naive."
Iowa Tea Party group's sign links Obama, Hitler - Politics - Decision 2010 - msnbc.com

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

At least some of the Tea Partiers are condemning the sign which is more than what any of the "tolerant" libs and progressives ever did when they compared Bush to every dictator under the sun without critical comment from the media for years.

Well Obama is trying to keep down a entire group of citizens (Whites and Black Americans) with his social policies. I say that is close to what Hitler tried to do.

Instead of deflecting the question and using distractions, perhaps you can answer it: Do you agree with comparing Obama to Hitler? Is it a valid comparison to you?

Hitler...
1- Hated communism (he saw everything he didn't agree with as communism, including the Jews).
2- Hated homosexuals
3- Hated Jews (largely because of him embracing Martin Luther's doctrines)
4- Emphasized on Christianity as the national religion
5- Hated workers' unions
6- Touted his military experience
7- He saw world and people in black and white... "Good" versus "Evil". There was little to not gray area (middle ground).
8- Operated on ultra nationalism

He was pretty consistent on these for over a decade before taking office, and after as well.

Ironically there's another group in America that seems to hate the same things...

...I wonder if they noticed
