After reading this I finally realized how dispicable people like Grassley, Steele and Palin truly are. This article below describes what Hitler did to human beings.
This republican party and its cohorts are now pushing this and saying that our President will do this to Americans..
I cannot begin to tell you how angry I am at this.
HOW DARE THEY?!!!
This is vile and toxic stuff and those leaders in congress, like Grassley ought to be censured and then tarred and feathered and chased from Washington. People like him do not deserve the title of Senator..
Reviewing what the Nazis actually did -- and why -- shows that such inapt comparisons reveal more about the attackers than the president's or Congress's current proposals.
...A word of history: At the Nuremberg doctors trials of the late 1940s, the judicial process focused mainly on Nazi medical experiments. But scholars now regard standard Nazi medical practice -- the so-called euthanasia program -- as more serious, more all encompassing and more criminal. Long before World War II, Nazi physicians began with a mass sterilization aimed at propagating a master race. Doctors sterilized mentally retarded and congenitally ill Germans, designated by Nazism as "useless eaters," consuming scarce resources of the German nation still mired in depression. Worse, much worse, was to follow.
Within the war's first six weeks, Hitler signed an order (backdated to September 1, 1939 to give it the appearance of a war-time measure) giving two doctors "responsibility for expanding the authority of physicians... to the end that patients considered incurable according to the best available human judgment of their state of health, can be granted a mercy killing."
The Nazis invented a new term: "life unworthy of living."
Mass murder of the handicapped began slowly. At first, authorization was informal, secret and narrow in scope--limited to the most serious cases. From the Berlin Chancellory Tiergarten 4 (code named T-4), officials ordered a statistical survey of all psychiatric institutions, hospitals, and homes for chronic patients. Within months the T-4 program enlisted virtually the entire German psychiatric community...
I wonder if all these people with signs of Hitler etc., really know what they are brandishing.
Read complete article and judge for yourself and then take back our country from these thugs by getting out there and fighting for truth.
..That is not to say there is no place for a Nazi analogy in this debate. The Nazis rose to power by mastering the art of propaganda, repeating lies so frequently and so widely that eventually people took them as truth. Hence the importance of seeking out the truth, and exposing those who would engage in such deceit.
Freud taught us about projection: Those who would compare Obama to Hitler or his policies to Nazism ought to look in the mirror.
