About the comparison grievance of U.S. presidents and Hitler

Occasionally someone calls Obama a new Hitler or some such, and while I cannot speak for those people’s intentions and reasoning behind such claims, I’d like to cause you some discomfort by pointing out how this would actually make sense.

Keyword Obamacare. Social insurance. Apparently he cares about Americans (at least as the official story – he’s still a politician). People who still operate on the cold war propaganda condemn him as a “socialist”, which is tragically amusing, because he’s still so far away from that. But let’s just acknowledge the type of policies he supports.
Recently I listened to an album of a comedian. I liked his humor. Eventually he said that Obama is a pretty good president and got applause from the audience. This is typical mainstream ‘liberalism’ (their own naming, not necessarily an accurate description).
So it seems that people put what Obama allegedly wants for U.S. Americans above the continued and even intensified foreign politics of George W. Bush, of drone strikes, collateral damage, warmongering, lying and deceiving, generally spreading death and terror in the name of corporate and financial interests.

So to emphasize: He focuses on social needs, but only for his own nation, in stark contrast to how he acts towards others. (Not that this is a new thing for the USA.)
And here comes the whammy: You know what this is called?

National socialism. In German historical context abbreviated “Nazism”.

Combine that with the obviously growing fascism of the US government and you got a situation eerily reminiscent of early Nazi Germany. And ‘nobody’ noticed because there are no swastikas. … And because the more you condemn others and the past (hindsight being easily 20/20, and it always being easier to see someone else’s faults), the more you lose sight of the present.

The basic formula is that as long as sociopaths are allowed to run the show, you will get such political developments.
