All-Time Leading Hitlers

339 words

catThe United States believes that it has the right to interfere in the affairs of any country for any reason. Comparisons to Nazi Germany aren’t apt, because the Nazis would’ve never had the gall to claim that nuclear proliferation on the Korean or Indian peninsulas was any of their business.

All this requires a well-oiled propaganda machine to convince the boobs that they’re out fighting for freedom. And, of course, the standard way of saying that the dictator you want to demonize is evil is to say that he is “like Hitler.” I searched for the following phrases in Google with quotation marks to see which government heads are the leading Hitlers.

Poor Carter became a Hitler for criticizing Israel in that book of his.  It looks like being president before the internet era took off really hurt Clinton’s and Reagan’s Hitler rankings. Obama has only been in office for 8 months. In another year he will become the all-time leading Hitler.

Interestingly, even entire countries can be “like Hitler.”
