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".

Wondered it, but didn't dare say it.

Could this be just though the crowning achievement of Political Correctness?

Maybe we need a Obama Presidency just to get past all this PC crap. And purge this PC stuff from all the mush minds.

One more thing,

The book, "Rise and Fall Of The Third Reich" should be mandatory reading in all schools.

I find Hitler's early days fascinating.

Never forget.

Blueberry said...

I'm reading that book now. I agree, it is fascinating. I will be requiring that my own children read it next month. In fact, I was telling my husband about it last night.

"The Hiding Place" is another book I highly recommend. It haunts me daily, especially the words of her brother in the early days before all hell broke loose.

Ok, as much as I disagree with using Jesus to make political points... and as much as I dislike Obama as a political candidate... TC does have a point. You can pretty much put any political leader's name there.

citizenwells said...

Aren't you missing a critical point?
Jesus was sincere and was about love.
Those surrounding Hitler and Obama were about hate.

Dawn said...

"I am sure you can appreciate the metaphors."

Not really. Once Nazis are brought into a discussion it's usually the signal to leave intelligent discourse behind. I've been seeing claims that Obama is the sign of the beginning of the endtimes on some message boards. Same kind of thing.

It would be nice to see some thoughtful criticism of the man rather then hyperbolic accusations grounded in fear.

TC said...

Citizenwells: So you're saying 2 people can have a lot of single points in common and still ultimately be different? It's like you're making my points for me.

Judy Aron said...

Hey Dawn - does that mean we should never ever bring Hitler's name into a discussion - that's just baloney and meant to stop a discussion. Obama's campaign can certainly be compared to Hitler's: propaganda is propaganda. Media control here is obvious and has been obvious since Ron Paul was blacked out from debates. The media has chosen Obama and forget the voters. But the voters are being brainwashed with sound bytes and images and the point is they have No clue whatsoever WHO Obama really is and what he represents.

Judy Aron said...

tc - you may not see any connection and you may not like the comparison. That's fine. I think there is a lot of hype going on with this campaign and people are oblivious to what this candidate actually represents. All they see is someone young and spouting all the things that they want to hear.

The Germans were the same way - Hitler wooed the masses just like Obama is doing. The methods being used are the same. You can disagree.

Obama is an empty suit with empty promises. He has changed positions to suit whoever he is speaking to. I don't think the average person supporting Obama has a clue what his policies are and what he intends to accomplish.

Now I am no fan of McCain either. I don't think either of them can be trusted.

Tell me TC why exactly is Obama campaigning in Europe?
Does anyone realize that the reason those crowds are so large is because of the free concerts given before Obama speaks? all those Germans were not just there to see Obama - they were there to see Coldplay and several other famous bands. The media won't tell you that. They want to mislead people into believing that Obama has all this support and if people see that then they will latch onto him because everyone wants to support a winner.
It's all purposeful misrepresentation.

Obama without a scripted speech is nothing. He is a fraud.

Dawn said...

"But the voters are being brainwashed with sound bytes and images and the point is they have No clue whatsoever WHO Obama really is and what he represents."

That point has been missed by the invocation of Godwin's Law. You may have a point about what the voters know or don't know but comparing him to Hitler does nothing but obscure that point and focus debate on your use of Nazi comparisons.

Judy Aron said...

Nah - I don't think that is true, and I don't accept "Godwin's Law" as gospel either. Godwin's Law is used to shut down an argument via the claim that Hitler is an extreme comparison; that no one could ever be compared to Hitler..etc. etc..

I don't think that is valid.

Hitler may represent the gross systematic extermination of people, and a whole lot of evil, but he and his administration employed propaganda tactics that can be used and still are used today (misinformation, disinformation, mind control, subliminal messages etc). That was all I was trying to point out in this post.

I don't agree that using him as a comparison waters down or obscures an argument. If anything it can serve as a reminder.

Anonymous said...

I hadn't considered the Hitler comparison, it's very clever! I was thinking this week how much this European tour reminded me of Eva Peron and her tour of Europe in "Evita." She and her husband are living the high life off of the poor people in Argentina, giving them no more than beautiful words and empty dreams to eat, and she flies off to Europe to show everyone that she has "arrived."
What is it going to take for the US to wake up???

Blueberry said...

I was going to respond last night about the comparison using Jesus, but it became lengthy and I decided to scale it back.

I would like to make an important point, and that is that Jesus was not a politician. Far from it! Jesus was hated by most and crucified by the mob. He didn't campaign, He taught. His message caused division, not unity, because it was how to obtain salvation apart from following man's laws. He loved us enough to die for us, but He also warned us that we cannot obtain eternal life by ourselves or by following a list of man's laws. We need Him, through His blood that was shed on the cross. He defeated death on the third day and He warned of false prophets and others that would come in His name claiming to be Him or know Him. There are a lot of quack "evangelicals" running rampant these days, btw.

Jesus didn't target youth, His message was for everyone young and old. His message was about eternal life in Heaven, not a comfortable life on earth.

Jesus was about freedom and being set free by providing a reconciliation with God. We don't have to follow man's laws or government laws in order to obtain eternal life. We don't have to tithe a certain amount, volunteer so many hours, pray several times a day, or go through ritual after ritual in order to be granted entrance into Heaven. The price has already been paid, through Jesus Christ.

Obama is not a messiah. He's a socialist, seen by many to be their savior, the one that will sweep in and solve all their problems.

People have been duped into thinking that there can never be another person worse than Hitler. I will stand up and say again and again that once we've convinced ourselves of that, then we're ripe for the picking.

Judy, I respect you very much. I'll understand if you decide not to post this comment, but I just had to say something.

retire05 said...

There have been many men who have led people. Some good, some bad. And to make the comparisons between them is fair game. To say that none of the leaders of history do not share common traits is simply an attempt to shut down any dissention.

The other night I could not sleep and was watching a History Channel about the rise of Hitler. There were crowds of waving Germans as the parade passed by the podium Adolph Hitler stood on. I kept thinking that something is ringing a bell with me. What is it?

Then it dawned on me. This is similar to the fawning crowds we see at an Obama rally. Women holding their children up hoping Der Fuerer will smile at them. And there were no German flags. No one, not one German was waving a German flag. They were all waving the emblem of Hitler.

How many people at an Obama rally do you see waving American flags? Compare that to how many people you see waving the big "O". The big "O" is everywhere, on posters, signs, on the Senator's podium and has even replaced the American flag on the tail section of his campaign plane.

Hitler's brilliance (and yes, he was brilliant) was his ability to sell. He sold himself. He sold the notion that Germany, in economic distress since the end of World War I would regain it's previous glory. It would once again be the great nation it had been, it would again be the most powerful nation in the world. And he sold the German populace that they would once again prosper under his guidance. Germany, once again, would be respected by the rest of the world.

Hitler organized the youth. They would later become the feared members of the SS and some would even rat out their own parents, bothers, sister and extended family members as opposition to the "movement".

How is this different? Has Obama not rallied the youth of this nation, especially our college youth who have been endoctrination by professors who cut their teeth on the 60-70's peace movements and anti-war protests? Are women fainting and men thinking that their mundane lives are going to immediately become better? And do we not have the sign of the candidate, the big "O" everwhere?

Yes, there are many similarities. And they are not to be dismissed lightly. Because, after all, Hitler was a major PR campaign. And if you think that PR campaigns don't work, ask CocaCola.

Mayday said...

Like you, "Blueberry," I had prepared a much longer comment, one I intended to cut through all of the hyperbole and utter preposterousness above.

But my response to your comment alone scaled several pages, and I eventually came to feel that devoting so much text and time to refuting immature and ill-formed logic was both pointless and stressful.

So I'll mention only one thing - your characterization of Obama as a "Socialist."

How is he both a socialist and Hitler? As I recall, Hitler was a fascist, and foamed at the mouth about how those dirty reds were destroying Germany.

But, of course, they both end in "ist," so I can see your confusion.

Perhaps a freshman civics class would be advisable before you try to talk politics with the grownups.

cttaxed said...

Hitler was a socialist.

National Socialist Party

TC said...

If you think that drawing crowds, appealing to young people and talking about hope were what made Hitler bad for the world, you don't know enough about Hitler.

Hitler was bad because he suspended civil liberties and killed Jews. If you have some actual evidence that Obama will literally do that, then we can talk, but all you have is a similarity between their campaigns.

Sorry, but talking about hope and change to large crowds does not alone a fascist make.

TC said...

Funny you should bring up Hitler's "socialism"

It's true, the Nazi party was the socialist party. But the views it held in Hitlers time were far from anything you would refer to as "socialist" today. In fact, their later views on the degredation of German society were strongly fascist and fed the nationalism that led to their infamy.

Obama certainly doesn't seem to be furthering any amero-centric nationalism, unless I missed that speech.

Judy Aron said...

Mayday - Your comments were incredibly rude and uncalled for and certainly does not exhibit any measure of "grown-up" discourse. Perhaps you should visit a grade school and learn some manners.

Furthermore, rude posts will be deleted.

It is fine if you disagree - but please you need not be rude or condescending.

Judy Aron said...

Yes TC - it's a pity that Obama is not pro-America. His wife certainly isn't, nor are some of the people he associates with.

TC said...

Judy: You seem to have confused patriotism and nationalism in my comments. I assure you I meant the latter.

A patriot may love their country and still have things they wish to change. The fact that you disagree on those points does not make them anti-American. It is very American to disagree and it is very American to be disagreed with and above all, it is very American to want what is best for your country. You and Obama have differing opinions on what needs to happen in America. That's just fine, because simply having opinions about what's best for America is what makes a patriot, not what those opinions are. It is the concern for and the love of country that makes the patriot.

This means that both yourself AND Mr. Obama are patriots, even though you disagree and that's just fine and if I may say so myself, very American.

So by all means, have this discussion. Criticize Obama's platform and views, free and open debate is pivotal to a healthy government of the people. But personally, I think it's childish to compare someone to Hitler because they draw large crowds and use similar appeals, as I said before, it wasn't Hitler's crowds and appeals that spawned Godwin's Law, it was the Holocaust.

Try to remember that Obama and his supporters are people just like you. They want what they want because they love America and want to see it be the best it can be, just like you do. Try to think about where they're coming from before you put them in the same boat as famous dictators. If you want to make comparisons, maybe try using more comparable figures. There are plenty of our past presidents and leaders with much more valid similarities to Obama, some of them good and some of them quite bad. 1930s Germany was a completely different country in a completely different time making it quite a bit more difficult to draw effective parallels and be taken seriously.

And from patriot to patriot, I want to tell you that your arguments in this posting, regardless of the merit you believe them to have, will be largely ignored in their current form simply because of Godwin. I strongly urge you to raise the level of the conversation above this sort of rhetoric.

Judy Aron said...

Oh please TC - do me a favor and don't lecture me about patriotism - I do not equate patriotism with nationalism. We are all patriots if we are engaged in the process of debate and protection of our rights. For that I thank you for your spirited debate on the issue I present.

Personally, I just do not find Obama to be terribly pro-America, even if he is "a patriot" of sorts.

Godwin's law is nonsense as far as I am concerned - and being from a family of Holocaust survivors myself, it is imperative that we learn from history and look at the red flags that present themselves, especially when electing leaders. And again - I never said Obama would be into exterminating people - but he does pose some serious concerns in policy for this country.

I am sorry, but the blind devotion that these people have for Obama is downright scary. Most of these people haven't a clue what Obama even proposes to do except "change" something. They utter sound bytes and follow along like sheep.

Do YOU know exactly what Obama wants to do ? he's said so many conflicting things it is near impossible to tell what he really stands for. said...

Socialist? Well it would help if he'd stop using soviet style poster art. It makes me nervous. Same shade of Red.

"this image appropriates the graphic style of totalitarian Soviet propaganda. It recalls the idealzed portraits and personality cult of Obama change the "Beloved Leader" such as Stalin and Lenin. The leader, face illuminated by a "holy" light, looks off to the horizon and sees the truth that is not available to his mere mortal followers, who must look up to his image."

Much of the country is down. Our spirits have been demolished by the economy, the mortgage meltdown, the credit crunch, the Iraq war, the rampant poverty, the growing distance between the haves and have nots.

If you know your history, you'll remember that the Germans' rise to world power was the result of their treatment after World War I. That's right, the aftermath of World War I caused World War II.

When a country is so beaten down as the Germans were, they look to a charismatic leader who promises hope, fairness, and prosperity. National pride. Some call it jingoism. The Germans called it survival. Inflation was rampant, their economy weak, poverty was rising, etc. All those same things going on here.

What a lot of Americans need right now is hope. A belief that somebody gives a shit about them. Somebody who offers the promise of fairness. Hope. Honesty. Competence. Leadership.

Whether or not Barack Obama delivers on the messages he makes remains to be seen. However, millions of people are banking on him.

Just like millions of Germans banked on Hitler.

anonymous 8:14 - Yeah, Ron Paul is a real Nazi. I guess the Andrew Walden washed your brain and you can't do a thing with it.
You are of course entitled to your opinion.

The truth is:
Ron Paul wants to stop giving US taxpayer money to ALL foreign governments including Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Pakistan, Jordan and more. Other politicians brand themselves as “friends of Israel” while undermining Israel’s right to defend itself when it so chooses. In 1981, Ron Paul was one of the only members of congress to defend Israel’s right to bomb Iraq’s Osiraq Nuclear Reactor. While almost everyone in the U.S. government and the world criticized Israel for the attack, Ron Paul publicly stood up for Israel’s right to defend herself. Since the Six Day War, US presidents and presidential candidates have tended to speak of the US and Israel as great friends and allies, but they have also tended to favor the shrinking of Israel's borders, and now are asking for the division of Jerusalem! Ron Paul wants to end the United States meddling in the affairs of other countries.

My opinion stands - his campaign has many of the elements of Hitler's, and Godwin's Law is just a means to shut down discussion.

I'm so tired of people who read a history book and decide this makes them a "student of history". There is nothing in common between the USA in 2008 and Germany in 1933. Hitler was not a "superb speaker" - he was a terrible speaker with a silly voice and indifferent German. (Churchill had a rather strange voice, but his rhetoric was superb and his English brilliant.) His rallies have nothing in common with Obama's - just watch newsreel footage of them. An Obama t-shirt has nothing in common with the elaborate panoply of the Nazi uniforms. Hitler's message of "change and hope" has nothing in common with Obama's at all, except - possibly - words in translation (they have very different meaning in the originals!).
This is superficial, self-indulgent, ignorant bletherskyte.

Is this supposed to be some kind of dig? Being prepared for a possible pandemic is just prudent. My employer, a VERY conservative (in the original meaning of the word) company regularly sends out updates on the spread of bird flu. I guess this company, one of the oldest and most respected in the US, must also be guilt of something. I'm not sure what, though.

I'm glad to have found this post. The entertainment value alone was worth the price of admission.

Judy Aron said...

It IS SO entertaining to see the "troll patrol" out in full force.

No dig Daryl - just an interesting observation how your "being prepared for pandemic" is prudent and my "being prepared for global financial chaos" (since I am of course hiding in my basement homeschooling my kids waiting for the apocalypse) is plain lunacy.


I guess your fears trump mine and are so much more valid. (Wow, the elitism just doesn't stop).

Funny how you and your pals say I am "losing it" because I have written about what I believe to be some very disturbing red flags (including the erosion of our rights) while it's totally ok and normal for you to be hunkering down waiting for a pandemic just because YOUR "conservative employer" sends out some memos. The double standard is not surprising coming from you. Quite frankly, you amuse me to no end. LOL

As for the Godwin police - I guess they have nothing better to do then to seek out what they believe to be hyperbole and they spend their time looking for any discussion of Hitler - especially if it involves Obama. They would do much better spending their time researching who Obama really is, what his actual plans for this country are, and who he has associated with in the past. You are of course free to ignore how many times this "politician of change" has lied, flip-flopped, and pandered to the sheeple. But then they all do it, as I am sure Hitler did. (tsk... there I go again.. I guess I lose this argument too... LOL)

But no matter, the truth about "the savior" Obama is of course just a smear campaign isn't it? And heaven forbid anyone says anything negative about "the savior" - then we just have the Obama fanatics out there invoking everything from racism to fascism to Godwin's Law to silence them. I have news, it ain't gonna work.

Keep hoarding food for the bird flu pandemic. You might actually need it if Obama gets elected and he brings this country further into financial collapse with his socialist agenda.

Excuse me, I have to go back to my basement now - the kids want to learn how to saute squirrel and tie knots. Maybe we'll even talk about Hitler. LOL

As for TC's comment - It's funny you mention such a comparison between Jesus and Hitler. So what are you saying, that you think Obama is like Jesus? The reason I ask is because I've actually heard people say Obama is some type of Messiah or an "Anointed One"? And that gives us another reason to see Obama's rise as simaler to Hitler's. Like those who supported Hitler during his rise in Germany, some people were naïve enough to think that he was actually some sort of messiah:

from -

It was not long before the German people were prepared to take the short step of seeing Hitler, not as a man, but as a Messiah of Germany. Public meetings and particularly the Nurnburg took on a religious atmosphere. All the stagings were designed to create a supernatural and religious attitude and Hitler's entry was more befitting a god than a man. In Berlin one of the large art shops on Unter dean Linden exhibited a large portrait of Hitler in the center of its display window. Hitler's portrait was entirely surrounded as though by a halo, with various copies of a painting of Christ (High, 453). Notes appeared in the press to the effect that, "Als er sprach, hoerte man den Mantel Gottes durch den Saal rauschen!" Ziemar reports that on the side of a hill in Odenwald, conspicuous as a waterfall, painted on white canvas were the black words:

"We believe in Holy Germany
Holy Germany is Hitler!
We believe in Holy Hitler!!" (763)

Roberts reports:

"In Munich in the early autumn of 1936 I saw colored pictures of Hitler in the actual silver garments of the Knights of the Grail; but these were soon withdrawn. They gave the show away; they were too near the truth of Hitler's mentality." (876)

Teeling (585) writes that at the Nurnburg Nazi Party Rally in September, 1937, there was a huge photograph of Hitler underneath which was the inscription, "In the beginning was the Word . . .". He also says that the Mayor of Hamburg assured him, "We need no priest or parsons. We communicate direct with God through Adolph Hitler. He has many Christ-like qualities." Soon these sentiments were introduced by official circles. Rauschning (552) reports that the Party has adopted this creed:

"Wir alle glauben auf dieset Erde an Adolph Hitler, unseren Fuehrer, und wir bekennen, dass der Nationalsozialismus der allein seligmachende Glaube fuer unser Volk ist."

A Rhenish group of German "Christians" in April, 1957, passed this resolution:

"Hitler's word is God's law, the decrees and laws which represent it possess divine authority." (550)

And Reichsminister for Church Affairs, Hans Kerrl, says:

"There has arisen a new authority as to what Christ and Christianity really are - that is Adolph Hitler. Adolph Hitler ... is the true Holy Ghost." (749)

A few days ago I was pondering the election and I came to the conclusion that Obama is not running a campaign but he has created a movement. Upon further thinking on this, the Nazi parallels between his movement and Hitler's became so apparent I felt terrified.

I don't think that he is out to exterminate a group of people. But I do think that he is using the same tactics as Hitler used. He is using gestapo tactics of intimidation against opponents. Look how his 'brown shirts' went after Sarah Palin and now they are destroying 'Joe the plumber' for daring to ask a simple question out of 'Dear Leader'. There are too many parallels with the rise of the third reich and the obama movement. This is rightening stuff.

Firstly, Adolf Hitler is on a President-elect Obama sign, which makes the on-looker believe that the two must have somthing in common without even reading anything, similar to seeing a jewish armband on a man and assuming he is a Jew. Secondly, in the paragraph from YouTube, you compare Hitler and P-E Obama with each other saying "like Hitler...," following it up with comments that could apply to many different people. Also, you mention Bill Ayres as a known terrorist that P-E Obama "surrounded himself" with. This clearly proves you refuse to listen to anything our Presedent Elect says - he explained that he was on a board with the man, not exactly "associating" himself with him.
And here, I, too, use propaganda.
Get a grip. You are far too paranoid. I could probably find the same comparisons with McCain or Palin, and I'm sure someone will.

and thats such a wide observation, i think you probably just want to find reasons to dislike barack obama.

hazel dear - I can see that your education has been sorely lacking in grammar and spelling - perhaps your history needs some work as well.
Take some time today to read the Constitution and instead of spending time on MySpace or Facebook read something meaningful like the Federalist Papers. Think for yourself and learn to rely on yourself. Don't be a sheep.

Hitler was a socialist.

National Socialist Party

Hitler was a national socialist yes, but a socialist no. National socialism is socialism of the state, where socialism is beneficial of the individual only.
