Lawmaker Defends Obama-Hitler Comparison





obama hitler 300x215 Lawmaker defends Obama Hitler comparison

Though her outrageous claim raised more than a few eyebrows, an Arizona Republican is sticking by the comparison she made recently between Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler.

According to a Facebook post by State Rep. Brenda Barton (R-Payson), Obama has been behaving like “De Fuhrer” during the federal government shutdown. She cited a number of vindictive acts to drive home her point, such as the targeted patrol of war memorials in Washington, D.C. and the eviction of citizens living on federal land.

Despite being ridiculed by the left, Barton has not backed away from her comments and has since made a number of comments in an effort to explain her position.

She said that the way Obama is leading the U.S. resembles Hitler’s rule of Nazi Germany prior to the slaughter of millions of Jews and other minorities.

“It’s not just the death camps,” she said, explaining that Hitler “started in the communities, with national health care and gun control.”

The German dictator was also “elected by a majority of people,” she pointed out, noting that Obama has ruled with a similarly imperial manner. Her harsh criticism reportedly stemmed from frustration over Obama’s intention to cause as much inconvenience as possible during the shutdown.

Barton also attacked Obama for failing to negotiate with the U.S. House throughout the shutdown.

State House Minority Leader Chad Campbell (D-Phoenix) roundly rejected Barton’s comparison as “mind-blowing,” adding that her attempts to “justify these comments is beyond reason.”

Since World War II, many leaders on both sides of the political spectrum have been compared to Adolf Hitler. This is a serious accusation, considering the unparalleled legacy of pain and hate he left behind.

Barton, however, was attempting to illustrate the dire situation in which America currently finds itself. While her comments were unquestionably controversial, one imagines that was her intent. Few statements elicit a response quicker than a reference to Hitler.

She encouraged anyone who disagrees with her analogy to “read your history.” Perhaps an honest look at the past would prove that her comparison is more apt than they care to admit.

  1. Everyone automatically remembers Hitler for his horrific acts against the Jewish community. However, before his acts became so horrid, he was a "leader" to his people, and played the part. I understand the reasoning for her claims in comparison, it is a simple matter of a short history lesson.

  2. Conservative says:

    Funny how the left screams when attacked but have no problem calling Republicans Nazis. and terrorists. It's time the left started living up the moral standards they want the right to live to. also, most dictators started out the same way as Obama, nice guys just trying to' fundamentally changing' a nation 'for the better'. They then disarm the population for it's own good, bankrupt the nation, take over the main public services like healthcare, indoctrinate the young at the earliest levels, pit the young against the old, pit the poor against the rich, create racial tension that escalates where one race or one religion attacks the other. They take over the media, demonize, ridicule and hold up any opposition as clowns or unfair or corrupt and eventually put them in jail. They become the father to the public and ease them into full dependency and eventually run literally everything in the country with a total iron fist with no freedoms except those given by the ruler. Let's face it, Obama hates the US. He is a racist with a hatred toward white people. He hates the power and influence the US has and he is arrogant beyond the norm even for politicians. He is also spoiled to the extreme as well as having been raised on the communist doctrines. He got where he is by uberliberal handlers and supported by devious, crooked politicians and racists from his youth to his time in Chicago and the White House. If he is not a Muslim, which is what he was raised to be, he is certainly sympathetic to Islamic radicals and is anti-Christian by his actions. He has also been raised in the belief that Jews are bad and Israel should be eliminated. so how far off is this comparison?

    Rep Brenda Barton is right and there is no reason she should back down after all Reid, Poopalosi and other dems every day call republicans names.Obuma is the reincarnation of Hitler and he uses Adolphs tactics to getnwhat he wants.Hitler liked his military while Obumhole hates ours that seems to be the only difference.

  4. I BELIEVE OBAMA MAY BE MORE DANGEROUS THAN HITLER ONCE ALL IS COMPLETE.

    • Anonymous says:

      Perhaps. But the difference between Hitler's time and Obama's time is guns in the hands of the people. Hitler succeeded in disarming people. Obama has failed, and in fact, has succeeded in causing massive numbers of people who had no arms, to arm themselves in preparation for civil war and disobediance.

  5. She's absolutely right. If you know your history, obama has done nothing new, but has just been taking pages out of history. And, none of them are good pages. In fact, obama has "never" had an original thought of his own, and neither have any of his followers. All just repeats of the flotsam of history…

  6. civil discourse, refuse to obey any of his laws, refuse obamacare, tell the i.r.s. to stuff it where the sun dont shine, call your republican congress members and demand this muslim be removed from office and put in prison where he belongs !!!!!!! no lifetime pension or pres protection for this a-hole.. we the people have to have action instead of words, he is using our reluctance to violence to fast forward his socialist agenda..the time for good men to rise up is NOW !!!!!!!!!

  7. She is spot on! Read this, as history repeats itself!

    Obhitler is a socialist, with unequivocal tendencies towards fascism. One only needs to look at his past to realize Obhitler marches to a different beat. The Tyranny-in-Chief and his goons are embarking on a Third Position journey of Fascism. Somewhere between a socialist and communistic state lies Obhitler’s delusional grandeur that will play out in his warped little mind. Obhitler has even taken a play right out of Hitler’s playbook. Austria elected Hitler into power by a massive 98% of the vote! Embracing Hitler and the Nazi nomenclature meant to many, the promise of employment and the badly needed help for families. The Austrian people were eventually lulled to sleep by massive entitlements and the promise of “stripping away the evil” that was preventing the country from achieving greatness. Hitler was going to help them achieve a level of excellence they coveted. They just had to “trust him.” America is now meandering right down that path. Remember, Hitler’s mien was his benevolence and random acts of kindness; that is before turning with a vengeance on the very people he serenaded. He was always putting the well-being of children first and was seen as a savior to an economy on the brink of disaster. One of Hitler’s first order of business was to disarm Austria. His edict was an easy dupe, just like it is with Obhitler today, gun registration is needed to “lower crime rates against children” and “protect the people” from unlawfulness that had riddled the country for years. Hitler too, was out to fundamentally transform Austria. Starting to sound familiar? Obhitler has breached the presidency and we have reached a major crossroad in our great nation’s history, we must rise up to the occasion or risk forever losing our identity as a country. While liberals continue to saunter down the path of denial, conservatives remain diligent and have accurately discerned that there is an evil force at work, that same force now has a stranglehold on our country’s fate. We simply can no longer afford to stand by and allow this usurp president and his band of narcissistic ruffians destroy our constitution and rewrite our history. Enough is enough already, let’s rise up shall we?

    • Evermyrtle says:

      You are right, we must stand against this evil if we do not we are just as bad as are they. Besides that if we do not stand we will fall to the point our freedom will be lost. Then to worship GOD AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST will cost our lives as it is doing in other places in the world.This infidel intruder has the country that way, already.I believe we have already had our last election. If there is another, the enemy will have in some devious way contrived to be elected, again! Nothing has stopped him yet from doing as he pleased, laws, constitution, nothing has stopped him.

      There is a saying; If you do not stand for something you will fall for anything; we are falling, we must stop it.

    14 Similiarities between Adolf Hitler & Barack Obama:
    1. Both Hitler and Obama held rallies in outdoor stadiums to excite and inflame the people’s passions. Frequently women would faint or break into tears.
    2. Both Hitler and Obama wrote ghost-written autobiographies prior to the start of their run for political office. Hitler wrote Mein Kampf (My Struggle), and Obama wrote Dreams Of My Father. Both men then wrote a second book talking about their goals for Germany and America. Hitler wrote A New World Order, and Obama wrote The Audacity of Hope.
    3. Both Hitler and Obama originally had last names that were changed later in life. Hitler used to be Schickelbruber, and Obama’s last name was Soetoro.
    4. Both Hitler and Obama hid their real identies. Hiter had a Jewish ancestry, and Obama
    a Muslim one. But unlike Hitler, Obama flaunted his Muslim roots in his start as a politician in order to defuse the inevitable firestorm. His ploy of “hiding in plain sight” worked very well.
    5. Both Hitler and Obama’s supporters followed them blindly, and without question.
    6. Both Hitler and Obama used political power and coercion to conceal and hide their birth certificates from coming to public view. Hitler made his disappear, and Obama is unwilling and unable to produce his long-form birth certificate.
    7. Both Hitler and Obama advocate using young people as a driving force to create an “army” of youth dedicated to their Ideals. Hitler had his Hitler Youth, and Obama his Obama Youth Brigade.
    8. Both Hitler and Obama were known for their tremendous oratorical skills.
    9. Both Hitler and Obama received Messianic comparisons, and both men had songs of adoration written about them and for them.
    10. Like Hitler, Obama rules in direct disregard to the will and wishes of the people.
    11. Like Hitler, Obama has an obvious distaste for the Jews, and sides with the Muslims every chance he gets.
    12. Both Hitler and Obama were able to mesmerize the people even when it was obvious that what they were saying was not true.
    13. Both Hitler and Obama used domestic terrorists to launch their careers. Hitler had his Brown Shirts from his beer hall days, and Obama had people like Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Rashid Khalidi.
    14. Like Hitler, Obama advocates using murder as a means of population control.
