More Useful Hitler Comparisons

Lately there has been a lot of talk about unions and how Republicans are trying to break up public sector unions, and Senator Sherrod Brown thought it was useful to point out one person who was against unions: Hitler! Strange, I thought the Nazis were socialists and thus real progressive on workers and such, but oh well.

Anyway, to help the debate even more, I thought I’d point out some other useful Hitler comparisons.

OTHER USEFUL HITLER COMPARISONS

* The Aardvark is a land dwelling mammal… MUCH LIKE HITLER!

* Mahatma Gandhi has been dead since the 1940s… MUCH LIKE HITLER!

* If same-sex marriage is allowed, homosexuals will be able to get married… MUCH LIKE HITLER!

* Academy Award Winner Colin Firth often wears shirt and pants… MUCH LIKE HITLER!

* Many people don’t follow me on Twitter… MUCH LIKE HITLER!

* President Obama doesn’t have muttonchops… MUCH LIKE HITLER!

* The iPad 2 is composed of matter… MUCH LIKE HITLER!

* A number of Democrat State Senators are not in Wisconsin… MUCH LIKE HITLER!

BTW, did you know that a U.S. senator makes $174,000 a year, and all they have to do is vote yes and no on stuff? You could train a dog to do it, and it’s $174,000 a year. I guess you can also give speeches, but you’d probably seem smarter if you didn’t. And dogs are also good at not talking. For instance, let’s say you have Sherrod Brown going on about Hitler, but in the background is a German Shepherd sitting there quietly and looking on sternly. Who would appear smarter? Now, I’m not saying we should replace our senators with dogs, I’m just saying it’s a pretty cushy job that’s easy to do. So if you know of an opening in the senate, I’d like to be considered. I’ll get my resume together, but I assume that by having done anything before, I’m overqualified.

    You missed the coup de grâce:

    Obama and the Dems want “single payer” nationalized healthcare MUCH LIKE HITLER!

  • gringott

    The German youths loved and cheered for Obama, JUST LIKE THEY DID FOR HITLER!

    I confess I shall never be able to see Colin Firth in the same light ever again. :/

    I’m not saying we should replace our senators with dogs

    Why not? They’re better behaved and they can’t be any less fiscally responsible.

      But they might start chasing hippies…

      • SargeH

        Or at least, sniffing them.

  • kaziklibey

    Great points all.

    Nonetheless, we could look at this quote and ask ourselves who said it:

    “We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.”

    Was it a powerful union leader? Perhaps the current POTUS, B.H. Obama? Maybe one of his Czars? Or a “democratic” senator?

    Or could it have been …Adolf Hitler?

    Just sayin’

      Alas, Hitler was not a socialist, any more than China is a republic or North Korea democratic. Labels can be deceiving.

      For those of us paying attention to history, Hitler slaughtered all the genuine socialists in the NSDAP during the Knight of the Long Knives, then later formed an alliance with the most powerful businesses in Germany, who contributed quite liberally to his capture of the Chancellorship.

      • minicapt

        Yes, the ‘Sturmabteilung’ was a massive Socialist organisation. Your attention to history is rather sporadic , and superficial. If Hitler was not a Socialist, it would be on the grounds that he transcended mere Socialism.

        Cheers

          Oh, Good Lord! minicapt cites the Brownshirts, hence I must run in panic!

          NOT.

          Holmes, your “non-sporadic” knowledge of history has a few holes in it. Like the socialist faction of the NSDAP was headed by Ernst Rohm. His followers actually took the words “socialist” and “workers” seriously, which upset the German capitalists (which upset Hitler, as he depended upon said capitalists for his accession to the Chancellorship). Brownshirt cadres occupied many department stores and other businesses, only to be told by Party officials to return control to the original owners (try reading The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich, by William Shirer). When Rohm later insisted upon carrying out the socialist points of the Nazi platform, Hitler had him murdered, along with his fellow travelers. Which is what I said in my original “sporadic” post. If you were paying attention. :)

          Your fatuous claim that Hitler “transcended mere Socialism” begs the question as to whether he was ever Socialist in the first place.

          I welcome any factual citations of genuine Socialist behavior on the part of the NSDAP. Good luck on that. ;)

        Hitler was a “National” Socialist. Much like the Chinese government of today. The new “acceptable” name for it is “State Run Capitalism”.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Casey-Tompkins/1103953224 Casey Tompkins

          NC Boy, that is an arguable description of Fascism: a capitalist corporative state.

    In the future, everyone will be Hitler for fifteen minutes.
