Before heading home, I stopped at the Post Office to mail some things. This is what greeted me:
“Why have you made the president look like Hitler?” I calmly asked one of the two women at the tables.
“President Obama is ruining the world economy,” one answered.
“But what is it necessary to put that mustache on him?” I asked again.
“Because he is just like Adolf Hitler,” she replied without blinking.
“Adolf Hitler targeted, isolated, and murdered millions of Jews,” I said, ramping it up a bit.
“And how many people will die because of President Obama?” the woman said.
The irony of this, of course, is all the information that has been written about Larouche’s cause and it’s connections to right wing/white supremacy/ Hitler sympathizing organizations and teachings.
Listen, I know as much as the next person that these ladies have a constitutional right to paste a clearly unique mustache that telegraphs only one thing on a photo of the president of our country.
And why is it that Occupy protestors all around the country have been hammered by police , when these women are allowed to display this garbage in peace and tranquility?
The Glass Steagal - Hitler connection is a stretch for me. Call me dense, but it’s a stretch. These people are disgusting. Is there no respect left anywhere for anyone?
Say what you will about George Bush - and believe me, I never had one good word to say about him - I never dreamed of drawing an Adolph Hitler mustache on his face.
Nor would I ever do such a thing on Newt, Mitt, Michele, or even Sarah, all of whom I loathe.
This is the nutjobery that our president faces every day...at the same time that politicians in Poland are saying that what they fear the most from Germany right now is that Merkel won't act fast enough to staunch the bleeding in the EEU which, might I add, will flow across the pond to our shores if the debt crisis there is not dealt with.
Hope that Larouchey thing works out for these two women. Just sayin.’
