President Obama is Using Nazi Symbols?

12 Aug

So Rush Limbaugh has now decided that President Obama is Adolf Hitler, and that the proof is that his health care plan symbol resembles the Nazi Eagle emblem from World War II.

Well, let’s take a look Rushbo…

Ok, well, um, each has wings…and each has a circle…

Does anyone else have a problem with Rush, Hannity, et al., trying to compare the current administration to Hitler’s Nazi regime?

One very learned group certainly does. The Simon Wiesenthal Center is criticizing those who have injected Adolf Hitler into the discussion of President Obama’s health care plan. That would be? Let’s see? Oh, yeah, Rush, Hannity, et al., and a whole host of thug-like troglodytes hell bent on disrupting the free discourse of political thought and discussion. Gee, just like the brown shirted thugs of the Nazi Party did in Germany during the 1930s. So, who are the Nazis here?

“It is prepostrous to try and make a connection between the President’s health care logo and the Nazi Party symbol, the Reichsadler” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is one of the largest international Jewish human rights organizations with over 400,000 member families in the United States. It is an NGO at international agencies including the United Nations, UNESCO, the OSCE, the OAS, the Council of Europe and the Latin American Parliament.

Now Rush, for the sake of your logical argument, let’s take a look at other symbols in the United States and used by the government that might, just might, look a little more like the Nazi Eagle.

And then this symbol looks a lot like the Luftwaffe symbol of World War II.

There are a lot more symbols that could be thrown out as resembling something “evil”, just as Rush has done. Perhaps people should stop and think before comparing things to the symbols of the Nazi Party.

But then again asking Rush, Hannity, et al. to stop and think might be asking too much.

    What else do you expect from the man who went on Letterman and said Hillary Clinton looks like… a hood ornament! Must be all that hillbilly smack he’s strung out on.

    I thought dissent was the highest form of patriotism? now that we have a socialist President, is dissent now verboten?

    I think Rush is right; the stupid Obama symbol DOES look like the National Socialist’s symbol, although I’m sure the artist didn’t intend for it to.

    But only a willfully blind person refuses to see the similarities between Adolf Hitler’s socialism and Obama’s socialism.

    Only an idiot would compare the two, or accept that comparison …
