I saw this in my Reader, and immediately a Bob Parks post from Black & Right sprang to mind.
My thought was, “Yeah, never stoop to calling your opponents ‘Nazis’ … you mean like THIS?”
I’m afraid the right wing Republicans are miles behind when it comes to almost eight years worth of presidential-Hitler analogy, and Lisa Derrick knows this as well (I will take it for granted that she has some intelligence). But seeing how Barack Obama has perpetuated most of George W. Bush’s terror and war policies, and has imposed an authoritarian nature to our government that makes his predecessor look like a bush leaguer, I’d be very careful about whining about those Obama-Hitler comparisons.
They may be vile, but they may be closer than Ms. Derrick would want to admit.
