Ive been trying to get people all around me to realize what the #! is going on here.
Hitler burned down Reichdag, Bush allowed people to knock down the Twin Towers then was even caught lying on national television!!!!!!
1. Like Hitler, President Bush was not elected by a majority, but was forced to engage in political maneuvering in order to gain office.
2. Like Hitler, Bush began to curtail civil liberties in response to a well-publicized disaster, in Hitler’s case the Reichstag
fire, in Bush’s case the 9-11 catastrophe. 3. Like Hitler, Bush went on to pursue a reckless foreign policy without the mandate
of the electorate and despite the opposition of most foreign nations. 4. Like Hitler, Bush has increased his popularity with
conservative voters by mounting an aggressive public relations campaign against foreign enemies. Just as Hitler cited international communism to
justify Germany’s military buildup, Bush has used Al Qaeda and the so-called Axis of Evil to justify our current military buildup. Paradoxically
none of the nations in this axis--Iraq, Iran and North Korea--have had anything to do with each other. 5. Like Hitler, Bush has
promoted militarism in the midst of economic recession (or depression as it was called during the thirties). First he used war preparations to help
subsidize defense industries (Halliburton, Bechtel, Carlyle Group, etc.) and presumably the rest of the economy on a trickle-down basis. Now he turns
to the very same corporations to rebuild Iraq, again without competitive bidding and at extravagant profit levels. 6. Like Hitler,
Bush displays great populist enthusiasm in his patriotic speeches, but primarily serves wealthy investors who subsidize his election campaigns and
share with him their comfortable lifestyle. As he himself jokes, he treats these individuals at the pinnacle of our economy as his true political
“base.” 7. Like Hitler, Bush envisages our nation’s unique historic destiny almost as a religious cause sanctioned by God.
Just as Hitler did for Germany, he takes pride in his “providential” role in spreading his version of Americanism throughout the entire world.
8. Like Hitler, Bush promotes a future world order that guarantees his own nation’s hegemonic supremacy rather than cooperative
harmony under the authority of the United Nations (or League of Nations). 9. Like Hitler, Bush quickly makes and breaks diplomatic
ties, and he offers generous promises that he soon abandons, as in the cases of Mexico, Russia, Afghanistan, and even New York City. The same goes
for U.S. domestic programs. Once Bush was elected, many leaders of these programs learned to dread his making any kind of an appearance to praise
their success, since this was almost inevitably followed by severe cuts in their budgets. 10. Like Hitler, Bush scraps
international treaties, most notably the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, the Biological Weapons Convention, the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, the
Convention on the Prohibition of Land Mines, the Chemical Weapons Convention, the Kyoto Global Warming Accord, and the International Criminal Court.
11. Like Hitler, Bush repeats lies often enough that they come to be accepted as the truth. Bush and his spokesmen argued, for
example, that they had taken every measure possible to avoid war, than an invasion of Iraq would diminish (not intensify) the terrorist threat against
the U.S., that Iraq was linked with Al Qaeda, and that nothing whatsoever had been achieved by U.N. inspectors to warrant the postponement of U.S.
invasion plans. All of this was false. They also insisted that Iraq hid numerous weapons it did not possess since the mid-190s, and they refused to
acknowledge the absence of a nuclear weapons program in Iraq since the early nineties. As perhaps to be expected, they indignantly accused others of
deception and evasiveness. 12. Like Hitler, Bush incessantly shifted his arguments to justify invading Iraq--from Iraq’s WMD
threat to the elimination of Saddam Hussein, to his supposed Al Qaeda connection, to the creation of Iraqi democracy in the Middle East as a model for
neighboring states, and back again to the WMD threat. As soon as one excuse for the war was challenged, Bush advanced to another, but only to shift
back again at another time. 13. Like Hitler, Bush and his cohorts emphasize the ruthlessness of their enemies in order to justify
their own. Just as Hitler cited the threat of communist violence to justify even greater violence on the part of Germany, the bush team justified the
invasion of Iraq by emphasizing Hussein’s crimes against humanity over the past twenty-five years. However, these crimes were for the most part
committed when Iraq was a client-ally of the U.S. Our government supplied Hussein with illegal weapons (poison gas included), and there were sixty
U.S. advisors in Iraq when these weapons were put to use (see NY Times, Aug. 18, 1992). U.S. aid to Iraq was actually doubled afterwards despite
disclaimers from Washington that our nation opposed their use. President Reagan’s special envoy Donald Rumsfeld personally informed Hussein of this
one hundred percent increment during one of his two trips to Iraq at the time. He also told Hussein not to take U.S. disclaimers seriously.
14. Like Hitler, Bush takes pride in his status as a “War President,” and his global ambition makes him perhaps the most dangerous
president in our nation’s history, a “rogue” chief executive capable of waging any number of illegal preemptive wars. He fully acknowledges his
willingness to engage in wars of “choice” as well as wars of necessity. Sooner or later this choice will oblige universal conscription as well as
a full-scale war economy. 15. Like Hitler, Bush continues to pursue war without cutting back on the peacetime economy. Additional
to unprecedented low interest rates bestowed by the Federal Reserve, he has actually cut federal taxes twice by substantial amounts, especially for
the top one percent of U.S. taxpayers, while conducting an expensive invasion and an even more expensive occupation of a hostile nation. As a result,
President Clinton’s $350 billion budget surplus has been reduced to a $450 billion deficit, comprising an unprecedented $800 billion decline in less
than four years. At the same time the U.S. dollar has steadily dropped against currencies of both Europe and Japan. 16. Like
Hitler, Bush possesses a war machine much bigger and more effective than the military capabilities of other nations. With the extra financing obliged
by the defeat and occupation of Iraq, Bush now relies on a “defense” budget well in excess of the combined military expenditures of the rest of
the world. Moreover, the $416 billion defense package passed last week by Congress will probably need to be supplemented before the end of the year.
17. Like Hitler, bush depends on an axis of collaborative allies, which he describes as a “coalition of the willing,” in order
to give the impression of a broad popular alliance. These allies include the U.K. as compared to Mussolini’s Italy, and Spain and Bulgaria, as
compared to, well, Spain and Bulgaria, both of which were aligned with Germany during the thirties and World War II. As a result of their
cooperation, Prime Minister Blair’s diplomatic reputation has been ruined in England, and a surprising election defeat has produced an unfriendly
government in Spain. The Philippines have withdrawn their troops from Iraq to save the life of a hostage, and other defections can be expected in the
