There is No Such Thing

As a slow news day on the internet.

I found a rant on Capitol Hill Blue this morning that compares the Bushwhacker to Adolf Hitler. You may think that the idea is outrageous and totally uncalled for. But you may just want to read the piece in its entirety and then decide for yourself.

Here are some snippets:

The Rant
Comparing Bush to Hitler
By DOUG THOMPSON

Compare George W. Bush to Adolph Hitler and you piss off some people, inflame others who either agree or disagree, and start a debate over when criticism of a public official goes too far.

"You go too far with the Hitler comparison," reads a typical email from one of the Republican lemmings who still think Bush has some redeeming qualities. "It's unfair."

Perhaps, but unfair to whom? I'm not sure it's possible to be unfair to Bush, the man who promised "the most ethical administration in history" but delivered, instead, the most corrupt, scandal-ridden, dishonest government I've seen in 40 years of writing about, or working in, politics...

Yet such comparisons become more and more evident. Hitler rode roughshod over the laws of his country, ignored civil liberties, called those who opposed him "unpatriotic," and created a powerful secret police that spied on citizens of Germany.

Sound familiar? It should. Bush routinely ignores the laws of the land, tramples on civil liberties, calls those who oppose him "unpatriotic," and has created the powerful, secretive Department of Homeland Security to spy on citizens of his country.

The few, remaining, brain-dead die hards who still defend Bush decry comparisons with Hitler because, they say, Hitler killed millions upon millions of Jews to become the greatest mass murderer in history.

True, and while Bush has not yet killed millions of Muslims, he is doing his best to up the body count with his lies-based invasion of Iraq and his politicized "war on terrorism." I doubt the thousands upon thousands of Iraqi civilians who have died at the hands of American soldiers and bombs consider our President a liberator. The word you hear most often on the streets is Baghdad is "murderer."


Let's just say this is something to think about.

I'm scared for our country and keep waiting for someone to stand up and say 'enough'.

I wonder where that point is, kim. Most everyone I know feels this way, yet there is obviously a very sizeable amount of people who aren't sufficiently concerned as to speak up or vote for change.

It makes me crazy.

It makes me crazy as well. It is as if there is some gigantic machine in motion that we are powerless to stop.

I like to compare Bush to achimp...about as smart and they resemble each other, too. But on second thought, I don't want to insult chimps.
