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.
