Apparently being a super liberal rag isn’t enough for the Washington Post. Nope. They have to take it way too far. Obama was compared to Hitler, so what’s a sane person to do? Why, go ahead and make a nice long article defending appeasing said super villain and wannabe ruler of the world. You know, the guy who tried to wipe out a whole non-Aryan race? Yep. Seems totally legit:
If there’s any doubt over how that contention sealed his fate in the eyes of history, just see the recent comments of prominent GOP politicos and presidential candidates.
For example, when President Obama had a brief, friendly encounter with Cuban leader Raul Castro on the sidelines of a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela in 2013, Sen. John McCain (R-Az.) was less than impressed. “Neville Chamberlain shook hands with Hitler,” the outspoken senator reminded listeners during a radio interview.
The deal in Vienna, agreed between Iran and six world powers, including the U.S., rankled presidential hopefuls, too. “This isn’t diplomacy, it’s appeasement,” declared former Florida governor Jeb Bush last week.
Neville Chamberlain’s mistake – acceding to a territorial compromise that did little to check Hitler’s continental aggression – is seen as a kind of original sin, a fatal act of foolishness and moral cowardice that had to be redeemed by nobler, braver men in the hideous years to come.
“This is the greatest appeasement since Chamberlain gave Czechoslovakia to Hitler,” said Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), reacting to the Iran deal last week. “[President Obama] is doing this because of his very poor understanding of history and what happened to Neville Chamberlain.”
Uh-huh. Totally. Maybe the comparisons to Hitler aren’t so unrealistic. Maybe we have a socialist dream unfolding in America that is quite frankly scary as hell for most of us. Maybe some of us don’t want to live in a giant, government run Utopia. Thanks, but no thanks, I am not drinking the Kool-Aid. Maybe if Obama doesn’t want to be compared to Hitler he shouldn’t try to run our country on a blueprint from Hitler.
