Obama Campaign Not Unlike Adolf Hitler's?

You might not agree, but some people have already been making the comparisons, and they are a bit eerie. Check out this post. It does have some interesting observations, not all are valid, but many seem worth thinking about ... And while no one is suggesting that Obama seeks to exterminate people... his message of "change and unity" is the same, his methods (and marketing) are the same, his delivery is the same, and his audience reacts the same.

The problem is we don't really know WHAT Obama really stands for. He expertly crafts his message for the particular audience he is addressing at any particular time; For example: telling AIPAC what they want to hear about an undivided Jerusalem and then telling others something else.

That blogger pointed out some things, and I have also added a few comments:
The economic conditions in Germany after World War I were horrible.
Well, our economy is fraught with mortgage bailouts, recession, inflation, a deteriorating dollar and lost jobs.

Adolf Hitler honed his oratory skills and became a superb speaker.
Obama is a superb speaker with the ability to mesmerize his followers.

Adolf Hitler surrounded himself with thugs and Jew haters.
Reverand Wright (black nationalist), Louis Farrakan (who claims Judaism is a "gutter religion"), Bill Ayers (a confessed terrorist), and Tony Rezko to name a few. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, and others have blamed white people and Jews for their problems.

Adolf Hitler had many people fooled (including many Jews that never thought all of that evil could happen in their country)
Obama fits his message to his audience. Is anyone really sure what Obama stands for? (example: Against FISA, For FISA, For a united Jerusalem, For a negotiated settlement including a divided Jerusalem - etc.)

Adolf Hitler spoke of change and a new Germany.
Obama's message is all about Change and Hope.

The people of Germany got caught up in the euphoria of the changes that Hitler promised.
Obama supporters swoon and faint.

The Nazis were elitists with talk of the Arayan Race.
Obama is an elitist who fancies himself a Global citizen. Obama showed his elitist attitude during his speech in San Francisco. His arrogance parallels Hitler’s Aryan race comments in regard to Obama’s God Like omnipotence in regard to having the answers to problems.

Another similarity between Obama and Hitler. Their campaigns have especially targeted young people.

Hitler and Obama both shot from obscurity to stardom in a relatively short time.
And another blogger says this:
Gun control, socialized healthcare, compulsory national service, an anti-market economic position, all on top of a creepy, cult-like leader worship by supporters. Thats five too many similarities.
The parallels are clear and they are worth examining!
Particularly if people are blindly following along
What is the lesson to be learned?

The German people blindly followed Hitler with his promises of change. Hitler and his cohorts were not scrutinized by enough people. Barack Obama is promising change and many are blindly following in a similar euphoric state. All candidates for the presidency must be questioned and carefully scrutinized.

Here is also an interesting piece Obama's Politics of Collective Redemption from the American Thinker.

This comment was left on a You Tube video about Obama:
"Like Hitler, Obama uses simple messages to win over people.
Like Hitler, Obama seeks to disband freedoms.
Like Hitler, Obama supporters faint and cry when he speaks.
Like Hitler, Obama campaigns on hope.
Like Hitler, Obama speaks of change.
Like Hitler, Obama campaigns on unity.
Like Hitler, Obama is popular in a time of economic weakness.
Like Hitler, Obama has an emblem/seal.
Like Hitler, Obama targets youth."

Perhaps Obama doesn't seek to exterminate anyone - but who is he really? What does he really believe? Should we be concerned about the company he has kept in the past 20 year or so?
It is said, "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it!"

Think too of the meaning and symbolism of the places he has chosen to speak - the Temple of Hercules in Jordan ... The Victory Column (“The Siegessäule in Berlin was moved from the Reichstag to its current position by Adolf Hitler," he told the Bild am Sonntag. "It was a symbol for German supremacy and victorious wars against Denmark, Austria and France.”)

I am sure you can appreciate the metaphors.

Where exactly will we be heading with this man in office? Who IS Barack Hussein Obama? Why are people so mesmerized? This phenomenon must be analyzed completely before anyone chooses this man to be the "Leader of the Free World".
