WND: Obama is Hitler. And He Demonizes People.

The Worldnetdaily is unsurprisingly promoting a book that President Obama is “worse than a communist.” In fact, he’s a Nazi. The book is from Chuck Morse, a far-far-right radio show host and, of course, WND is selling his book. Here’s the first part of his argument:

His conclusion? Obama is, at least in some ways, more akin to a “national socialist” than a communist.

“I have to be careful saying that,” said Chuck Morse, host of the IRN USA News talk show.

“I’m not suggesting [Obama] is an anti-Semite. I’m not suggesting he’s going to set up a Holocaust. But putting all that stuff aside, when you strip that away from historical Nazism and look at the political philosophy of Nazism, this is very much what Barack Obama is into.”

The book focuses on the evidence that Nazism, contrary to popular belief, is a leftist philosophy, not right-wing. It looks at the “leftist nature” of Nazism, the anti-Semitism of the “left,” the Nazi-Soviet alliance and Nazi-Soviet agents and the Holocaust.

Morse examines elements of National Socialism he sees in Obama’s administration. Those include a national welfare system, nationalization of police forces, a centralized regulation of private businesses, a centralization of power and bureaucracies imposing their own demands on a citizenry.

Okay, this is stupid enough. Every civilized country in the world has a national welfare system and America has had one for the last 80 years. Every civilized nation regulates private business and America has had this for more than a century. And Obama hasn’t nationalized any police forces, he’s inventing that out of thin air. And every nation has bureaucracies that made demands on citizens. So the notion that Obama somehow uniquely embodies those things is moronic. But it gets much worse. This is the very next paragraph:

He also looks at the use of demonization, noting many leftists today don’t say their political opponents merely are wrong but that they want to hurt people.

Obama is Hitler! And he demonizes his political opposition! Another irony meter bites the dust.

    The truth hurts, doesn’t it?

    The archetypical conservative Christian who buys into the defamation of President Obama would need further elaboration in order to understand the assertion irony. Stupidity is after all, one of the root causes that assures conservative Christian demagoguery remains a successful business model.

  • Loqi

    Yeah, the Nazis and Soviets were good buddies. I’d suggest someone give this man a history book, but I think he’d be more likely to eat it than read it.

  • John Pieret

    Every civilized nation regulates private business

    And it all started with that well-known leftist, socialist, commie, Teddy Roosevelt.

    Words simply have no meaning for these people. One only wishes that they’d cut to the chase and just repeat over and over “Obama is evil,” instead of using all these painful circumlocutions.

    It would save on irony meters too.

  • Chiroptera

    …the Nazi-Soviet alliance….

    lol wut? The Molotov-Ribbentrop treaty is an “alliance”?

    Remind me again who were fighting each other during the Battle of Stalingrad?

    And remind me what was the ratio of communists in the Nazi government to communists in the concentration camps?

    Do these morons (jesus, there isn’t even a word to adequately describe their sheer stupidity) even know any history at all any more?

    @ John Pieret

    They tried chanting “Obama is evil” into a mirror but he never appeared. Now they’re trying other spells. If they repeat them over and over with enough sincerity, they will come true. Both Oprah and the Bible tell them so.

  • Chiroptera

    …noting many leftists today don’t say their political opponents merely are wrong but that they want to hurt people.

    The assumption that “conservatives” want to hurt people has, in my opinion, greater explanatory power than the assumption that they merely are wrong.

  • John Pieret

    Oh, and he’s “not suggesting [Obama] is an anti-Semite;” he’s just pointing out “the anti-Semitism of the ‘left,’” of which Obama is the head honcho. Would you like another side of your mouth to talk out of, to go with the other two?

    …noting many leftists today don’t say their political opponents merely are wrong but that they want to hurt people

    Well that is absolutely true.

    1. The two terrorist attacks nearest my house both involved right wing xians. Some guy got in a shootout with the police while on his way to bomb an environmental group. And the local xians firebombed the local mosque.

    2. The main hate targets of fundie xian/right wingnuts are gays, women, nonwhites, and the poor. They will do whatever they can to hurt them.

    Their last stunning accomplishment was to cut food stamps for the poor. They want to cut them a lot more, something like 90%. The vast majority of food stamp recipients are children, disabled, and old people. It’s their own fault for being children or disabled. Children have always been notorious moochers, time for them to go out and get real jobs.

    You could write books on how the Tea Party christofascists not only want to but do hurt people.

    1. The most noteworthy latest one is the government shutdown and US Treasury default attempt. This was a direct attack on the USA and its government.

    2. A lot of people are looking at the Tea Party christofascists and using words like “sedition” and “treason”. A lot more are starting to call them the Hate America crowd. There is a lot of truth in that.

    Who knew that neo-liberal policies and public-private partnerships devised by Rightwing thinktanks in the late 80’s and 90’s so that the Republicans could pretend they believed in something beyond War, screwing the poor, and making already rich people much much richer, poisoning that era’s neo-liberal Democratic party ideas with their own ideas that they never intended to implement were really Communism?

    Who knew that Obama’s Extremist Pragmatism and Radical Centrism were really National Socialism?

    I was threatened by a tea partier so basically he’s accusing leftists of telling the truth.

    Mighty rich, coming from someone who make a living by demonizing people.

    I used to watch Threatened by a Tea Partier. It was like Touched by an Angel, but spiteful.

  • gshelley

    Do these people realise there is more to being socialist than having socialist in your name? Or do they think North Korea is a democracy?

  • http://onhandcomments.blogspot.com/ left0ver1under

    It would have been funnier had they said, “Obama curses people”.

    Then our irony metres could call it recursion.

    Do these people realise there is more to being socialist than having socialist in your name? Or do they think North Korea is a democracy?

    Yes, one could also mention the German Democratic Republic, East Germany.

  • John Hinkle

    The book focuses on the evidence that Nazism, contrary to popular belief, is a leftist philosophy…

    So if I follow this correctly, it goes like this:

    1. Obama is a leftist because he got elected and he’s not republican

    2. Nazis are bad.

    3. Leftists are bad.

    4. ????

    5. Ergo, leftists are nazis.

  • cptdoom

    The “elements of National Socialism” he describes are present in the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands – all countries that fought the Germans in WWII. I’m guessing they would have rather vocal responses to this comparison. Hell the Dutch don’t even like it when you point out how similar their language is to German.

  • freehand

    Now, now, the president isn’t evil. “Evil” is a rich and complex word. No, Obama is double plus ungood.

    Some reasons for outsourcing the entire government:

    Many laws regulating agency behavior will not apply to private companies.

    It is harder to monitor the finances.

    More post-office rewards for friendly legislators.

    It is much easier to be mean to poors, browns, and women.

    What is a “Nazi-Soviet agent”? Is it anything like a Muslim-Marxist president (i.e. a contradiction in terms)?

    Too bad we can’t consult Fritz Houtermans about this “Nazi-Soviet agent” idea. Imprisoned in Stalin’s Russia as a German spy, he was returned to Germany when the two nations became allies in 1940. Then he was handed over to the Gestapo, who held him as a communist spy. He later was freed through the intervention of Max von Laue. Joining the German nuclear program, he first saw the utility of plutonium for atomic bombs. Risking his life, he messaged American scientists: “Hurry up. We are on the track.” In 1945, he actually persuaded the head of the program that heavy water could be extracted from Macedonian tobacco — thereby getting a supply for his pipe.
