In fact, what do Linda Ronstadt, Harold Pinter, Scott Ritter, Ted Rall, and George Soros all have in common? The same thing that unites Fidel Castro, the European street, the Iranians, and North Koreans: an evocation of some aspects of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany to deprecate President Bush in connection with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
There is something profoundly immoral for a latte-sipping, upscale Westerner of the postmodern age flippantly evoking Hitler when we think of the countless souls lost to the historical record who were systematically starved and gassed in the factories of death of the Third Reich.
The final irony? The president who is most slandered as Hitler will probably prove to be the most zealous advocate of democratic government abroad, the staunchest friend of beleaguered Israel, and the greatest promoter of global individual freedom in our recent memory. In turn, too many of the Left who used to talk about idealism and morality have so often shown themselves mean-spirited, cynical, and without faith in the spiritual power of democracy.
(1) that ALL of the whackos who LUDICROUSLY disparage Bush with Hitlerian references (Linda Ronstadt, Harold Pinter, Scott Ritter, Ted Rall, and George Soros, Fidel Castro, the European street, the Iranians, and North Koreans and the Move.on/Left-wing of the Democrat Party) are committed, unabashed Leftists - folks who advocate socialism to one degree or another; and (2) that Hitler was a socialist!
