Came across this comparison today and felt moved to share it.

I always cringe when somebody in the media compares any conservative to Hitler.
– Hitler was the ultimate promoter of the all powerful, huge, omnipotent government that controlled all aspects of German life.
– Conservatives want to reduce the size of Government and its stranglehold on the people.
– Hitler loved regulating and taxing every possible economic activity in Germany.
– Conservatives want to reduce the regulations that strangle economic activity and the pursuit of happiness for the American People.
– Hitler established full national control of all Learning Institutions and had all school curricular follow the Socialist Party Doctrines.
– Conservatives want to take power away from Federal government over schools, empower the States, and promote competition through private schools, thereby losing political control over school curricular.
– Hitler used class warfare and race baiting to turn Germans against other Germans of Jewish background, and used that hate to exterminate millions of so-called undesirable.
– Conservatives show support for Israel and promised to protect the Jewish nation. Many of Conservatives are Christians and therefore vilified and subject to hate by the Left.
– Hitler was infatuated with Islam, invited many Muslim leaders to Berlin. ‘It’s been our misfortune to have the wrong religion,” Hitler complained to his pet architect Albert Speer. …“Why did it have to be Christianity, with its meekness and flabbiness?” Islam was a Männerreligion—a “religion of men”—and hygienic too. The “soldiers of Islam” received a warrior’s heaven, “a real earthly paradise” with “virgins” and “wine flowing.” …. This, Hitler argued, was much more suited to the “Germanic temperament” than the “Jewish filth and priestly twaddle” of Christianity.
– Conservatives want to vet Muslims that come into our Country and do not trust their intentions till they have proven on an individual basis not to do us any harm. They want them to assimilate and not bring their laws that contradict our Constitution to this country.
– Hitler invaded neighboring countries and occupied them to become part of Germany.
– Most Conservatives want to secure borders and build a wall to protect the American people from crime, drugs, and illegal immigration, but have no intention of Nation Building.
– Hitler had no trouble using abortion and euthanasia to control the German population and curtail the so called burden on government.
– Most Conservatives support the sanctity of life and want to defund the genocide that is promoted by their political opponents.
– Hitler was adored and promoted by the German celebrities of sport, film, and art.
– Conservatives are frowned upon by celebrities, and called Nazis (go figure).
– The press and media of Germany looked at Hitler as the savior of the nation, which eventually lead to full control of the media by the German Government.
– Conservatives are hated and ridiculed by the media, their financial backers, and their political affiliations.
– Hitler was adored by the German academia, and celebrated with marches, book burning, looting and burning of Jewish businesses. The German Youth became the tool to promote Hitler’s policies, with Hitler proudly proclaiming; “He who owns the youth, owns the country”.
– Conservatives are hated by most higher learning institutions, which have embraced Socialism as their creed, and indoctrinate young America accordingly.
– Hitler was fully aware of the danger of an armed population to a dictatorial regime. He used existing law for gun registration under the guise of crime fighting, just to be followed by gun confiscation, allowing only members of the NAZI party of hold on to their weapons.
– Most Conservatives are supporter of the second Amendment and fully aware of its consequence for any form of government that has tyrannical ambitions.
As it looks the American Left is following Hitler’s own words: “Accuse your opponents of what you yourself are doing.”
