Mad at the truth? (Bush = Hitler)

"I'm like freaking out totally -- they insulted my leader!" ought to be the headlines of some of the recent articles and blog posts by people getting bent out of shape about a video (or two) comparing Bush to Hitler made by one of the entrants in the "Bush in 30 Seconds" contest sponsored by MoveOn.org.

To be honest, it absolutely sickens me...

... that MoveOn.org has apologized for allowing truth to be spoken when nothing but lies have come out of the White House for the past 3 years!

It was some Bushies over at A Small Victory who especially irked me in a post whose comments begin with this easy target:
I forget -- where is that crazy-ass "God told me to strike al-Qaida" quote from?
[This refers to the on-screen text in the video]
I know it was attributed to Bush (ha ha), but who actually made that attribution?
[Others making comments "pointed out" that it was "former Palestinian PM Mohammed (sic) Abbas ... a noted Holocaust denier."]
I did a google search and got a bunch of tinfoil-hat sites.

[Bracketed comments mine]

Dan mentions [G]oogle, but he doesn't seem to know how to use it very well! (Nor is he paying close enough attention to his "leader.") He could've tried this search for ["god told me to strike" "and I struck them" bush], and he would've found more than 1,700 references to the quote. Duh!

Because of the many variations of the transliteration of "al Qaeda" from Arabic (and the infinite number of misspellings), I was careful enough to remove those words from my own search.

Now, how is Bush like Hitler? Let's see if I can come up with a few things off the top of my head...
die Heimat Homeland Security
Concentration Camp X-Ray, er, Delta *
Blitzkrieg Shock and Awe
Goe... Karl Rove
Is/Wishes he were a dictator
... and so many more.
In fact, if you are in dire need of something with which to fill your time, go read Bush's own quote about "just so long as I'm the dictator" -- 2,100 times.

Some people are referring to the Bush/Hitler comparison as "hate speech." This would most certainly depend on your definition of the term. Those who are "on Bush's side" might need to be reminded of this. (Stick that in your two-faced pipe and smoke it.) Or take a look at this World Nuts Daily (WND) article equating Arafat with Hitler and calling for him to be shot. Where was the outcry from the Bushies then?

UPDATE: While the RNC link to the videos posted on many sites doesn't seem to be working (What?! The RNC hosted the videos on their site? Of all the nerve!), and I was unable to get them via the peer-to-peer 'net, I finally found video #2 (the one with the "God told me to strike al-Qaida" quote) on the WWW (via a Google search, of course).
