Yawn.

Seriously, Bush sucks, but all this Hitler talk is bullshit.  Not to mention childish and insulting to those who did suffer at Hitler's hands.

Bush isn't putting millions of his own innocent people into gas chambers or launching chemical weapons at them.  These comparisons to Hitler are a disgrace to those who lived through it.

As was posted on OO, the head of the NAACP recently did something similar, equating the Republican party with the Nazi party, among other things.  I've had a few liberal friends make matter-of-fact comments like those as well, seemingly considering that viewpoint to be pretty normal.  In my opinion, though, anyone who says something like that is someone whose opinions I won't be taking seriously, because their bias has obviously clouded their vision.  They're no different than the conservatives I knew who feared Clinton was going to use Y2K chaos to install himself as president for life.   :roll:

Isn't there a rule that says you've lost the argument once you invoke Hitler?  Doesn't that make the rest of this thread useless?  Maybe we can use some owl pics......

Keep in mind I'm not personally linking Bush to Hitler, just being the messenger here.
I agree in the sense that Bush is responsible for the loss of thousands of lives from all his warmongering though.
Both our troops who fight in his wars, and those (in particular the thousands of civilians hit by U.S. bombs) who die by their hands.

There was also a quote:
"The Bush family fortune came from the Third Reich."
-John Loftus, former US Justice Dept. Nazi War Crimes investigator and President of the Florida Holocaust Museum

Personally if I was to compare Bush to anyone it'd be Julis Caesar. Caeser was set out to conquer the world and bring out his (Roman) idealogies to the rest of the world, by any means necessary.
Bush is set out to deliver his message to the rest of the world by any means necessary as well. The other day he was talking about how only the U.S. (In other words, himself) can bring world peace and it was our job to go out there and police the world.
If everyone else wants the American way of life (which by the way, is a great life - I just dont think we have the right to force our ways on other people who don't want to change) then why are our troops being killed by the day over in Iraq? Why do the majority of Iraqis want us out of their country?
Hell.. if we learned anything from our own history (the american revolution) nobody likes to be governed by a foreign occupier.

Again, not trying to argue anything here. Was just a simple news post from the VP of Venezuela - he hasn't been the first and won't be the last person to compare the Bush Regime to the nazis.

IMO, it seems silly to say that everyone should be JUST like you, especially when your own shit isn't together.

Bush is, without a doubt, the worst president America has ever had.  So for him to say that the rest of the world needs to be run just like us really seems more like a sleight of hand to distract from just how terrible he really is.

Laurence W. Britt wrote an article defining the 14 traits of fascist regimes.  And, somewhat unsurprisingly, GWB's regime hits every one with a bullseye.

As always, it amazes me how Bush's supporters always disregard the Bush family's past ties to Nazism, as well as their ties to supporting the most horrible dictators in the past half decade (including Saudi Arabia, the home of violent Islamists).  Bush creates our enemies, gives or takes money from them, keeps them in power, and sells them weapons, and then makes money from the US when we knock them down.  Pretty nice racket.

And wasn't this just a response to "Rumsfeld likens Venezuela’s Chavez to Hitler"?

Quote
“I mean, we’ve got Chavez in Venezuela with a lot of oil money,” Rumsfeld added. “He’s a person who was elected legally — just as Adolf Hitler was elected legally — and then consolidated power and now is, of course, working closely with Fidel Castro and Mr. Morales and others.”


Ironic.

So, in playground parlance, Rummy started it.  I swear, that guy is such a fucking idiot.  Just continuing the proud tradition this current administration has of failing upward.

One can cite Iran-Contra, the Honduras death squads led by Otto Reich and John Negroponte (who are current fixtures in the Bush administration), and tons of other outright evil events which were committed in South and Central America (among other places).

Compare that to what Chavez did, which is... ?

Chávez thus campaigned on an anti-corruption and anti-poverty platform, while pledging to dismantle puntofijismo, the traditional two-party patronage system

You forgot to put this in:

Quote
Chávez has been severely criticized, mostly by Venezuela's middle class and upper classes. He has been accused of electoral fraud, human rights violations, and political repression,[5][6][7] and has survived both a brief 2002 coup and a failed 2004 recall referendum.[8][9][10]

Unbreakable beat me to it. Election fraud, human rights violations, political repression, throw in some public deception and taking a country to war based off of lies.. sounds a lot like Dubya.
And keep in mind it says he's been "accused" of.. You'd think Dummy was talking about his own president the things he says about other world leaders to make them hate us even more.
All of this hate speech against the world is for what, world peace? To bring us all together?
Give me a break. There will be no world peace while Dubya holds on to power and continues his blood thirsty crusade across the globe to install his own idealogies, by any means necessary.

Again, patently ridiculous.  In two years Bush will be gone and these statements will look ridiculous.  I'll revisit this when Bush starts building concentration camps and begins wholesale genocide and eat my hat, but somehow, I don't think that is gonna happen.

You might as well be calling Bush 'The Boogeyman', or Freddie Kruger.  Oh, and Rumsfeld is just as stupid as Chavez for the comparison.

All it takes is two years for us to be occupying yet another country and have increased anti-American feelings across the globe while young Americans continue to kill and be killed.
I don't think anyone here has ever likened Bush to Hitler, but if that's what you want to assume from a link to someone who did, then hey, it's a free country.
However, a president going to war and getting thousands of Americans killed based off of LIES - what a dishonor for you to call that "redicilious" all those who gave their lives fighting for something we shoudn't be in in the first place.
Yeah, that's redicilous.

First of all, it is spelled 'ridiculous'.

Second, attacking Afghanistan and invading Iraq is a far cry from "a blood thirsty crusade across the globe to install his own idealogies, by any means necessary."  You have elevated Bush into this demonic madman status that just comes off as immature.  Bush is a horrible president, but he is not Hitler, or the anti-christ, or anything like that, and in two years we the people will be replacing him with some other shit-head.  He can't run again.  Just like Clinton couldn't before him.  He will be gone and we will have another shifty-eyed politician to regale and villify.

Third, I'm calling it ridiculous that people who think the deaths of American Soldiers in Iraq is in any way equal to the deaths of millions of Jews in the gas chambers and the concentration camps.

First, it's spelled "The" not "th'", although one's spelling has nothing to do with this discussion. Sorry not everyone is as good as you.

Second,  Afghanistan was a justified war, IMO. We had a goal in mind back then, to get the man who was behind the attack on America. The Taliban were given notice to hand him over or face the consenquences. They had their chance to comply and they could have held on to power, they chose not to hand him over.
The Iraq invasion however, on top of the "pre-emptive" doctrine Bush has been spewing, sounds an awful lot like a global crusade to me. It doesn't end at just Afghanistan and Iraq, we have our troops ALL OVER THE WORLD. We occupy damn near every country out there, many of them whom the people (Saudia Arabia as an example) don't want us their in the first place, much like the Roman Empire.

Third,  and once again, I wasn't comparing Bush to Hitler. Even though you haven't said I have, the fact that you keep bringing it up means your mind is well made up long before even posting something. That's pretty close-minded, IMO.
I've read what you've had to say and even agree with you to some extent, but Bush crusading the world to spread "liberty" and "democracy" by any means necessary isn't exactly a man who's in search of world peace. Bush is a madman, pure and simple. How many other presidents would have taken their country to war based off of lies? Surely not Gore - as he's come out in full force speaking against the war. Surely not Clinton either. I never minded Clinton, but little Bush, he's got to be the worst president in the history of this country.
And this isn't just about democrats either. I've always been a registered republican, hell, my favorite congressman is representative ron paul from Texas - a republican - who continually speaks out against things like the war, the so called "patriot act" and the continuing war Bush is making against both his own countrymen and those who won't bend to his will.

2 years is plenty of time. Proof or not, I have no doubt Bush is already being pulled by the puppet strings to think up a good excuse why we need to go attack and occupy another country (Iran) when the truth got out that there were no WMD's in Iraq.

Bush didn't put those troops there, we have had bases in many countries all over the world for decades, and in agreement with those countries governments.  We do not 'occupy' any country other than our own and Iraq right now.

You are the one purporting that he is doing this by 'any means necessary'.  Also, Bush is not the first president to state that he wants to spread liberty and democracy across the world.  Practically every president since the cold war has stated this mission.

Sabres are rattling right now, for sure, but Bush is going to have a much harder time convincing Congress to approve action against Iran this time around.  Remember that Iran is talking a lot of shit right now too, and the US isn't the only country that has issue with that.

Perhaps you should do a little research on the Bush family ties to the nazis?

Sure I started a thread about the VP of Venezeula calling Bush a modern-day Hitler, and your point is, what exactly?
Now that I've clearly stated I don't think Bush is like Hitler, you continuing to bring it back up indrectly towards me is saying something more.
If you've got something to say, just go ahead and say it and don't hide behind something else while saying it.
I've got no problems with you, so even though I may not agree with all your points of views I still respect you.
Respect is a two way street.

Sure just about every president likes the idea of democracy but Bush is the only one to act on that by forcing his way on to other countries, whether it's sanctions, occupation, or harsh words against that country to further the feelings of anti-american sentinment felt around the world.
Look at Cuba, perfect example. Even Cuban-Americans can't visit as freely as they used to be able to, simply because Dubya doesn't like the way that country is governed.
Whether you like the way Castro governs his country or not really isn't any of our business. Cuba hasn't attacked us and hasn't threatened to do so, yet it's people suffer under Bush's tyrannical fist that reaches across the globe.

Sure Iran is talking a lot of shit, but hey, so is Bush. And Bush DOES have weapons of mass destruction. What makes us so much better than everyone else that we can have WMD's but no one else can? Iran has insisted they aren't interested in making a weapon but only for civilian use, and why the hell would they let in inspectors when the same thing happened with Iraq?
Iraq welecomed inspectors with open arms before Bush launched his invasion and they coudn't find anything. They didn't even get enough time to do their job, and if you've followed up on anything Hans Blix (the head weapons inspector) has had to say he said Bush wanted the war whether WMD's were found or not and they never got to finish their job.
Same thing with Scott Ridderson - the weapons inspector back in the 90s - who was also a former marine - who said they never had any WMD's as they were all dismantled after the first gulf war.
What I'm getting at is, why would Iran want to repeat the same mistakes Iraq made by opening themselves up to the rest of the world when they know Bush has already made up his mind on what he wants to do? Same thing with North Korea.
I'm not saying the guys who run those countries are good people, but that's not for us to decide UNLESS they pose some sort of threat to this country.

And for the record, it's three countries we occupy. You left out Afghanistan.

This has changed quite a bit since 2002, as we have shown we intend to stay in Iraq, help rebuild, and not plundered the oil

Cuba suffers under a totalitarian regime that used to export terrorism and communist guerillas to Central and South America until their Soviet sponsors ceased to exist.  Castro is the reason Cuba suffers, not Bush.  

This role has now been taken by Hugo Chavez, to the delight of many on the Left.

If you believe Iran's government, I have a bridge to sell you.  The moral equivalency of Iran and the U.S. is a nice touch there.  The reason for this big dust-up now is the IAEA has proof they bought weapons plans from the A.Q. Khan network.  They are caught, and are daring the West to do something about it.

You are sadly mistaken if you think Iraq under Saddam welcomed the inspectors.  They did everything they could to frustrate and hamstring the inspectors.  Of course, this was much clearer and believable when Bill Clinton was President.

Hans Blix? You mean the same guy who was head of the IAEA when they cleared Iraq of having any nuclear weapons program, right before the Israelis had to go in and destroy Saddam's lab which was months away from a bomb in 1981?  He has a ton of credibility now, I guess, with the anti-war Left that he probably shouldn't have.


Quote from: "corruptrelic"

Same thing with Scott Ridderson - the weapons inspector back in the 90s - who was also a former marine - who said they never had any WMD's as they were all dismantled after the first gulf war.


Scott Ridder, you mean, who was vehemently against Saddam's regime until a mysterious $300,000 payment from some Saddam slush fund?  He has been completely and widely discredited.  Even moreso than George Galloway, the British MP was was also accepting bribes from Saddam, along with French and Russian officals, in addition to the nation-to-nation dealings Saddam had with those two.

Quote from: "corruptrelic"

What I'm getting at is, why would Iran want to repeat the same mistakes Iraq made by opening themselves up to the rest of the world when they know Bush has already made up his mind on what he wants to do? Same thing with North Korea.


Because, like most megomatic and fanatical regime, they (hopefully) underestimate our resolve?  They think the outcome will be different?  They think that with the country divided over Iraq there is no way we will do anything to them.  And once they have a nuclear weapon, they will hold the whole Middle East, including Israel, Iraq, and Saudi Arabian oil supplies hostage ad infinitum.
 

Quote from: "corruptrelic"

I don't guess the country that has a history of being the world's most active sponsor of terrorism, (along with Syria) run by the most aggressively religious and fanatical regime left in the world,  with history's
most dangerous and destructive weapons, counts as a threat?  I wish I lived where you do: fantasyland.

We don't occupy Afghanistan any more than we occupy Japan,  Germany, or South Korea still.  We have troops in those places at the behast of their governments.  And as our  "occuptation" of Saudia Arabia has shown, when asked, we leave.

I really hesitiated to post in this thread as the insanity which has infected the Left has really degraded their capacity for civil, rational discourse.  Allow me to both begin and finish my involvement with this:



I must give a digital and temporal nod to Th'Fool, who posted the original of this (at least where I got it from) way back when on old GG.  Thanks!

Perhaps you should do a little research before you throw up Cuba as an example of Bush/Hitler.  While Clinton slightly reduced our stance towards Cuba, those policies have been in place since the 1950s, through several cycles of power.  Blaming Bush for that is comparable to blaming Bush for New Coke.

And perhaps you should do a little more reading before jumping into hitting the reply button?
Dont know how many times I've got to say I'm not comparing Bush to Hitler before it finally sinks in.

Bringing up Cuba on the other hand, yes there have been policies there for years now but Bush has worsened them and even added new ones. During his presidency he's made it so that cuban-americans can only go there once every 3 years (not so during Clinton) and of course any of us non-cubans who want to visit are barred from doing so. We can't even go to another neutral country and then head there like we used to be able to without getting in trouble.
Not that I ever visited Cuba, but point is, I see no reason why Bush continues his suffering of the Cuban people. Oh yeah he doesn't like the leader but so what? Much of the rest of the world doesn't like Bush, yet we don't see them telling us how to run our government or trying to impose sanctions on us, or even worse, invading us and occupying our country to install their own form of government.

Just got into playing Revolution (PC) and wow.. basically America is attacked and occupied by a foreign power and years go on and you start building up a resistance and recruting new members to lead the "Revolution"
I dont know about everyone else, but if another country came here and attacked us and put 150,000 troops on our streets telling us how to run our lives, I'd probably take up arms too. Our forefathers did that during the American Revolution, for those of us that don't know much about American history and what this country was founded on.

Just a little side note, the other day I had read a heart breaking story in our local news paper about a cuban-american who coudn't go to visit his dying father in Cuba because of Bush's new rules as he went to visit last year. He was in tears over it and said the only people who are suffering under Bush's new rules are the Cuban people.
And I'd have to say, he's right.

Much of the rest of the world doesn't like Bush, yet we don't see them telling us how to run our government or trying to impose sanctions on us, or even worse, invading us and occupying our country to install their own form of government.

Forgot about 9/11?

Just got into playing Revolution (PC) and wow.. basically America is attacked and occupied by a foreign power and years go on and you start building up a resistance and recruting new members to lead the "Revolution"

That sounds like Freedom Fighters to me.  If so, that was a great, great game.

Woohoo!!  The "9/11 Card" has been played!!!

What did Iraq or Iran (or even North Korea) have to do with 9/11?  Sept. 11 was not some kind of permission to remove the rights of US citizens, or to conquer the globe.

Bush entered office with an agenda, and was waiting around for a pretext.  Iraq was getting attacked no matter what happened.

Also, try reading "House of Bush, House of Saud".  The Saudis, who have been financing the Bush family for decades, were quoted as having known about 9/11 in advance.  Likewise, investigations after the fact have turned up ties to the Saudi royals and to Bush.  Maybe it's as simple as covering up something which would be embarrassing for his Saudi friends.  Maybe not.  But it sure should be investigated, considering the family of a US president has received at least a half billion dollars in financing from the family of the person responsible for 9/11.

Try reading up on Prescott Bush's dealings with the Nazis.  The parallels between the two situations is such an... amazing coincidence?

And then, of course, there is the Valeria Plame case.  Interesting how someone working on non-proliferation had their entire CIA operation burned.  SHE wasn't the only one harmed, and I personally suspect the Joe Wilson connection is a coincidence.  They purposely destroyed that operation.

Absolutely not. Cowards attacked us on that day, and man behind it is still at large.
As already pointed out, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Syria, Cuba, and all these others whom have made it to the Bush regime's "hit list" had nothing to do with 9/11.
Bush played on people's emotions to justify the war against Iraq, so many people prior to his invasion had believed that Iraq was somehow behind 9/11 that they blindly supported the war even though people like Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, Scott Ridder, Hans Blix, constantly said Iraq was no threat to us and had nothing to do with 9/11.
Hell, some people even today so blinded by Bush's lies believe that Saddam was behind 9/11.

And for those of you haven't done any research on the Bush family ties to the Nazis here's a few good reads:

http://www.tarpley.net/bush2.htm

http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,12271,1312540,00.html

And here for those looking for similiarites between Bush and Hitler:

http://www.dissidentvoice.org/Articles3/Jayne_Hitler-Bush.htm

The game in question is actually called Republic the Revolution - I played Freedom Fighters as well, probably better than Republic in terms of how easy it is to pick up play.
Republic the revolution takes some time getting used to it but it's deep.

They had nothing to do with 9/11.  I was just responding to corruptrelic's quote which could only make sense (taken at face value) if he'd forgotten about 9/11.

Mods - I can see this thread is stirring up a hornet's nest  :lol:
So go ahead and delete it, a good friendly political discussion would have been cool but next time I'll bring them up without mentioning Hitler.

So please delete this thread.
