If Hitler Had a Hitler

Typical Tactics of Tyrants
Does anyone remember the myriad comparisons of George W. Bush to Adolph Hitler? Or perhaps the signs in Wisconsin carried by leftist union thugs -- when Scott Walker had his moment in history -- showing the Governor with the trademark mustache? Now consider the reactions to those comparisons by Bush or Walker with the apoplectic outrage of the left when one of their own is similarly disparaged.

It's all a matter of projection by the left, for when one of theirs is compared to Hitler, the truth hits too close to home. And it's also about deflection, for how can one who cares for children possibly be compared to a ruthless tyrant? So the left launches the attack first in order to easily scoff at the attempt to portray them in the same light. Childish, I know, which makes the people who allegedly "lead us" frightening people indeed. I just thought the hypocrisy was worth noting

For as much as the left referred to George W. Bush as Hitler -- and Dick Cheney as Darth Vader, of all people -- it is actually the current President and Democrats in positions of power who behave more like the former Fuhrer in their collective quest to dismantle our Second Amendment rights. And while Hitler had his Minister of Propaganda in Goebbels, Obama has the entire mainstream media, a much more effective misinformation machine than Goebbels could have ever dreamed.

I won't even delve into the conspiracy theories that the Sandy Hook Elementary school shootings have spawned, but I will explore the media's malfeasance in its reporting.

The reporting on the evening of the tragedy -- and the next day -- mentioned that Adam Lanza brought four handguns into the school. It was also reported -- in case you missed it -- that Lanza had his mother's Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, but that it was left in the car. After the initial report, however, the story morphed into Lanza spraying the school with "automatic assault weapon" fire, which our Democrat politicians ran with ad nauseam.

Who didn't hear New York Governor Andrew Cuomo shrieking, "No one needs ten bullets to kill a deer"! It was a compelling call to people who pay no attention to their rights given at the inception of our country, particularly those who live in urban areas that -- despite being riddled with crime -- have a large police presence to protect them, giving the impression that they don't need guns at all and are therefore receptive to the message of the left. (New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg went so far as to beg the President to unilaterally scrub the Second Amendment from existence). Nor are urban dwellers generally hunters and therefore unaware that the Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting anyway.

The entire rationale used by Cuomo and his ilk was based on the false notion that an assault weapon was responsible for the Sandy Hook tragedy, while it was not. Those twenty children died by handgun wounds at the hands of a disturbed young man who was neglected by the very system the left had set into motion so many years ago; the compassionate treatment of the depraved in lieu of incarceration.

The left loves murder and mayhem because it helps promote their quest for Utopia, a world where we the people are powerless and where they get unfettered reign over us. They have lamented the Second Amendment for as long as they have been aware, and now they see the chance to eliminate it for our own good.

Hitler also professed to know what was good for Germany, and after a series of humiliating political failures, he eventually rose to the top of his party. He didn't have a potent predecessor on which to compare his enemies, though, and he still managed to rise to power and commit his mayhem. While the progressives today attempt to preemptively portray patriots like the NRA as Hitler, Hitler himself had no "Hitler" of his own with which to paint his foes as evil. He rose on his own rhetoric.

Obama uses rhetoric through his teleprompter, but it stills stirs the emotions of the naive. He's also got a pen, which he uses to sign a variety of Executive Orders like the twenty three he recently signed concerning his gun control measures. If the people in America -- and more importantly our Congress -- don't wake up soon, Obama's pen could indeed prove mightier than the sword.

For those who blithely support the notion that we'd all be safer if our citizens had no guns, I caution you that if we allow that to happen, some future generations that stumble upon liberty again will have the same debate while comparing the demon not to Hitler, but to Obama.

It is more than just a little concerning to me, that more people are not willing to voice the comparisons of Hitler's tactics, with that of Obama's. Clearly, their end goal is the control. I don't not know whether it is lack of schooling, due to the fact that today's curriculums have pretty much ruled out historical fact, or whether it is the need of the weak, to be controlled. Whichever..our freedom is going out the door, more each day. I serioulsy wonder if we will even have a viable voting option in 2016.
