Obama = Hitler?! LOL

I've been seeing people compare Obama to Hitler for a long time. I have to say I find it hilarious.

Does anyone actually want to defend the argument that Obama is like Hitler? What stage of Hitler's political career is analogous to Obama's career now?

If you haven't gotten the point by now, what good will further effort on your part accomplish?

Either you read and understand history or you don't.

Or you're trolling, which is my current suspicion.

Do a search, read the arguments already posted, and then tell us which ones you "don't get".

Hitler, hardly. Fascist, most definitely.

If he's comparable to anyone its Woodsrow Wilson or FDR. But then again Bush Jr did things analogous to Wilson aswell.

Not the literal word, the concept and policy it inferred;

meaning "coordination", "making the same", "bringing into line", is a Nazi term for the process by which the Nazi regime successively established a system of totalitarian control over the individual, and tight coordination over all aspects of society and commerce. The historian Richard J. Evans offered the term "forcible-coordination" in his most recent work on Nazi Germany.

One goal of this policy was to eliminate individualism by forcing everybody to adhere to a specific doctrine and way of thinking and to control as many aspects of life as possible using an invasive police force.

LOL, well, I think the last 3-4 administrations or so and their counterparts are pretty much guilty of all of the above. So I don't really understand why you all are suddenly pointing accusing fingers at the latest administration. It's not like the any of the previous administrations didn't push a "unified" agenda at everyone. Come on really, this is nothing new; Copenhagen brought up Woodrow Wilson. His administration was very driven as well, probably more so than any other. It was full of propaganda and "unity" thinking, especially after he decided to go to war; probably his people were worse than what we see now. All this Nazi comparison stuff is just hyperbole and doomsaying.
