Heil Hitler!

If President Obama was Hitler.
Hitler would believe in diplomacy over war.
He would believe that no man deserves to be tortured.
He would not vote for an unjust war, and he would deplore
those who supported it for their own personal gain.
He would not let America forget the debt that was paid in
money and blood for any war, no matter what it was for.

He would feel it his obligation to see to it that our country
not go into another depression. He would hate having to
bail out failed companies and banks, but would rather do
that than see soup lines on every corner or even more.
He would be proud of our country when these choices
brought our country out of a recession that could have
been the greatest of depressions.

He would support our country’s decision to have open
talks with Iran. He would be fighting for peace in the
Middle East, for without peace there, there is no peace here
or anywhere. He would applaud efforts of nuclear disarmament
as a goal for all of humanity and for everyone’s sanity.

He would see his enemies spiting him and he would turn the other
cheek. Not because he is the Messiah but because that is what the
prophets and great philosophers have taught us to think.
He would let his enemies’ freedom of speech be a weapon with which to teach.
He would be open to an intellectual debate on all issues, if one could be found.
He would always have an open door and open ear to anyone who felt
they had ideas that could bring peace and prosperity all around.
He would make history not a mystery, but his mistress and he would love
her forever. White House or townhouse.

He would accept a dog that was given to him by Ted Kennedy and he
would cry with all who cried when Ted died. He would make universal healthcare for
all his priority. He would understand that people are not numbers.
He would understand that people are working hard already. That people
still can’t make it. That the cards are not stacked in their favor.
That if you get sick, you better die quick. That … is not a lie.
Just you get sick and try.

He would understand that a government’s role is much larger than fighting wars.

He would make education of our children a priority.
He would make clean air and water a priority.
He would make clean energy a priority.
He would make climate change a priority.
He would make global peace a priority.
He would make civil rights a priority.
He would make the American people a priority.

If this is the Hitler President Obama would be.
I would throw up my arm up and salute him … and you and me.

    wow….I sit here in total disbelief at those pics. Speechless.

  • SJR

    Powerful! I can totally see this as a spoken word piece with many of the visuals you have at the beginning. Either live or on video – that would be a killer performance piece. Nicely done.

  • bravo, globatron at its best!

    Globatron:

    Although I find these images disappointing, these individuals are only exercising their American rights…whether you agree with it or not. Freedom of speech does not always mean it’s going to make you happy.

    On that note, people did/said the same thing about George Bush and worse. Granted, he was not the greatest President, but regardless…..

    I don’t know why people are surprised. People have been saying hurtful things about the President since we’ve even had a President. Should Obama be any different?

    Just a thought.

  • All thanks. Appreciate the response. I’ve been dwelling on this one for a few weeks. I’ve thought of Hitler and Stalin and what they did historically and how many have compared Obama to these historical figures and it has made me wonder how on Earth someone could make that leap.

    And then I began thinking of what I’ve seen Obama stand for in his short time as President. What he has accomplished in such a short time, to me seems absolutely amazing. He has arguably the most difficult time in history as President and he’s going at all issues at once. He did not decide to sit down and tackle one issue but he’s taken it all on.

    I have never seen a President so aggressively attempt to make the change we voted for come to fruition. I honestly am a bit amazed that there is not more support for this brilliant passionate man we call President. Instead many would rather call him Hitler.

    And some folks wonder why racism was a question with the Tea Party and Town Hall protests.

    There seems to me not to be an anti-healthcare reform movement but an anti-Obama movement. The man could discover a cure for cancer and his opponents would find something wrong with that too.

    SJR, I actually tried to record this several times and I tripped up on the words so many times I just decided to post it as is.

    Maybe one day I’ll be able to speak my words but for now I’m happy just being able to write them.

    Globatron is honored.

  • Gerald why were people protesting with George W. Bush?

    Oh yeah, I remember. A war was started in Iraq under scare tactics supported by false reports of WMDs.

    A war that has killed, under some reports, close to a million civilians.

    A war we continue to fight because we have yet to find ourselves out of it. Billions of dollars spent on that war putting us into a debt that would easily pay for healthcare reform now. 12 Billion dollars a month since it has begun, I believe. No Tea Party Express was screaming about American debt then.

    Go team!!! This isn’t a game of football Gerald. Healthcare reform is about people’s lives. 47,000 Americans die each year because of their lack of coverage.

    I’m not surprised of the comparison to Hitler, I’m just a bit amazed at the ignorance behind such claims and how people as educated as yourself don’t’ find them utterly appalling.

  • Gerald,

    globatron is also exercising his rights to free speech by responding to these insane ignorant barbarians that live with us. every letter typed on this webpage is part of that freedom. participation is the key to a healthy democracy, and if we are outraged by such claims we have a duty to express that, a duty to try and point out the idiocy, because only then can we free ourselves by the tyranny of violence and ignorance that, as you implied, is always around.

    because of the redundancy of your criticism, as you are criticizing the free speech of globatron, or at least it seems that way to me, i am left to assume that globatron’s outspokenness is a threat somehow, which i find ironic. it’s as though we want stupid people to go out there and speak up, but when somebody who makes a call for intelligence and critical thinking speaks up we feel it is somehow a threat. this is the same ‘gut-reaction’ that is happening to Obama.

    what it boils down to is this. many people are scared of intelligent people and worse, unconscious of this fear, that unconsciousness turns into an instinctual dislike of people who can express their thoughts clearly and have a particular passion for uplifting others. this is an ancient problem, one we live with every day, one that helps me understand republican congress people yelling out during an address, so frightened by solid leadership.

    we must stop babying the stupid. smart people have a right to participate too.

    Akbar:

    Oh boy. Here we go again.

    If you read my post at all, you would see I’m not attacking Globatron at all. I was merely pointing out that people have a right to say what they want. In fact, I applaud him for being impassioned enough to speak how he feels.

    On that note, people have EVERY right to attack our President. It’s obvious that you and Globatron feel as as though you are right. I’m sorry to burst y’all’s helium filled bubble, but many people in this country don’t feel the same way you do. They have the right to say what they want to say, how they want to say it, when they want to say it.

    I find it unfortunate that you have to put these people down just because they don’t agree with you. I have an opinion about that, but I’d rather discuss that with you in person rather than send it in cyberspace for the world to see. Some would call it being an ‘elitist.’ Some would call it something else….

    Remember, Akbar. The same people you criticize have the same right to criticize you.

    TO CLARIFY MY POINT…AS I’VE CLARIFIED MANY TIMES BEFORE…I applaud freedom of speech, as long as it’s done respectflly. They just DISAGREE with you and I support them for being impassioned enough to do something about it. I’m not a fan of these images, but hey…THEY DID IT TO GEORGE BUSH. Google, that!

    Is Logocentric going to comment soon? I’m awaiting his opinion next.

  • Gerald

    OOPS. I MADE A TYPO!

    *respectfully

  • if you call their version of speech respectful, picturing obama as hitler then you and i are living in different ideological universes.

    they do have the right, and i have the right, and you have the right, and on and on and on, and on. but you are defending ‘them’, that is an important point, and you are entitled to defend them, but you have made no argument except for the ongoing statement of the obvious that everybody has a right.

    and in that, we are in agreement!

    And if Hitler won the Nobel Peace Prize……

  • I also heard he cured cancer last night too. The GOP is miffed because now they don’t know how all those new folks living will effect the economy. Will taxes have to be raised to take care of this huge growth in the population?

    Of course I’m kidding but at this point I wouldn’t be surprised if his opposition got upset about that even.

    Hitler was Time Magazines’s 1938 Man of the Year, but below was the reason he was chosen:

    On January 2, 1939, Time Magazine published its annual Man of the Year issue. For the year 1938, Time had chosen Adolf Hitler as the man who “for better or worse” (as Time founder Henry Luce expressed it) had most influenced events of the preceding year. The cover picture featured Hitler playing “his hymn of hate in a desecrated cathedral while victims dangle on a St. Catherine’s wheel and the Nazi hierarchy looks on.” This picture was drawn by Baron Rudolph Charles von Ripper, a German Catholic who had fled Hitler’s Germany.
