Farah: No One is Comparing Obama to Hitler. Except Him.

Worldnutdaily grand poobah Joseph Farah had a column on Friday entitled It Could Never Happen Here…, which of course argued that Obama is leading us to a Hitler-like dictatorship where they seize the guns and then start killing people (Christians, no doubt). But don’t get the idea that he’s comparing Obama to Hitler.

Ignore all the historical evidence that genocides and government-initiated mass murders are preceded 100 percent of the time by states disarming citizens.

That’s the message the American gun-grabbing cabal is sending daily now.

It could never happen here …

And one thing that is especially off-limits is to remind Americans that Adolf Hitler disarmed Germany’s citizens upon seizing power – making certain he and his SS henchman had absolute and total power to launch the deadliest war in history and carry out the Holocaust.

Making any reference to this fact is equated with comparing Hitler to Barack Obama.

Not so…

No one is comparing Obama with Hitler.

Except him, of course. And half the columnists on his site on a daily basis. It’s kind of like when someone starts a sentence with “I don’t mean to be rude” — you know damn well what follows is going to be rude.

    The bit about Hitler disarming German citizens is a lie, of course. As I understand it, he relaxed the gun restrictions that had been in force during the Weimar period.

  2. John Pieret:

    Remember, in Germany they came for the Jews first. But it didn’t end there. Those who defended the Jews were also victims. Those who opposed Hitler were also victims. Many were victims just because of Hitler’s paranoia and no other reason at all.

    Convenient, isn’t it, how he forgets that the gays were victims of Hitler too.

  3. Alverant:

    Also conveniently absent at Hitler’s frequent proclimations of his belief in the christian god and how he shut down Atheist and free thinker groups in Germany.

    Wow Joe, I never knew that those evul white setters took all the bows, arrows, slings, spears, boomerangs, woomeras, clubs, knives and so on* from the Amerindians and Australian Aboriginals before giving them the blankets infected with smallpox and flour laced with poison. You know everything!!
    And it’s funny how the bible never mentions the Israelites chieftains disarming the Canaanites though, I always thought the bible was supposed (by your ilk) the inerrant word o’ god.

    Almost as famous as the disclaimer: “We are not a bunch of kooks….”

    Who’s more Hitler – Hitler, or Obama?

  8. Artor:

    Theschwa got to my exact quote before me, so I’ll offer this corollary;
    “I don’t mean to Godwin this discussion, but…”

    @ Zinc Avenger:

    Who’s more Hitler – Hitler, or Obama?

    I’d say that the moderate Republican opinion on that would be that Hitler is still slightly more Hitler than Obama, but really only a little bit. But Obama is also only slightly less Stalin than Stalin, at the same time, and so still the worse person overall.

    You don’t want to know what the fundamentalist Republican opinion is.

    My favorite (from The Sopranos) is “With all due respect …” as in,

    With all due respect, you’re a lying cheating scumbag. With all due respect.

  11. dingojack:

    zippy – You’re forgetting the English public servants’: ‘With the deepest/ all possible respect…’*, usually uttered by public servants during ‘full and frank discussions’** with their political ‘masters’.
    With the deepest possible respect,
    Dingo. :)

    For those not familiar with ‘Yes Minister’ and ‘Yes Prime Minister’ I have taken the liberty of providing a loose translation:
    * You’re a [moron]/ an utter [moron]
    ** a ‘dressing down’, after which it’ll take weeks to get the blood out of the carpet

    Ignore all the historical evidence that genocides and government-initiated mass murders are preceded 100 percent of the time by states disarming citizens.

    Even if this was true, what does it have to do with the U.S.?

    Gun lovin’ Christians. Gotta wonder, what kind of heat did Jesus pack?

    I didn’t realize that would put the video in my comment. I was going for a link. Mea maxima culpa.

    When someone says “we are going to keep convicts and mentally ill people from getting guns” and your response is “They’re taking away our guns!” – What does that say about you?

  16. timgueguen:

    But Joe, you gnore all the historical evidence that genocides and government-initiated mass murders are preceded 100 percent of the time by men coming to power. So by your reasoning we must not allow men to come to power ever again..
