bush in in the same league with Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot- Over 1 million dead I'm not sure if Idi Amin made it to a million dead. Or which other people in history have caused a million deaths. But bush has crossed that theshold. I read the article from Lancet about two years ago and it was close to a million then. Of course, many of these deaths are from Iraqi civil war. But that civil war was caused by bushco's invasion. Jeez... and that doesn't count the wounded and displaced.

Comparing President Bush to Hitler trivializes all the millons of people who actually [I]were [/I ]murdered by those evil men. :mad:

1. busholini LEADS the league in atrocities.
He's the KING of torture and murder of civillians.

This isn't just stupidity, this is delusional!

And a strange word of common sense from someone who's usually pretty out there:

6. Above Hitler? Not quite.
Listen, I dislike Bush as much as the next person, but my grandparents were holocaust survivors, and Bush is not Hitler.

True. If Bush = Hitler then the DUmmys and the rest of the lunatic lefties wouldn't be around to complain. They'd be, at best, locked away in a deep, dank hole as enemies of the state or, at worst, in an oven being cremated after being executed, again as enemies of the state.

It almost sounds like you regret that Bush isn't Hitler. :D

Not really....if Bush was as bad as the Dummys say and started locking them up, who would we be entertained by with their utter stupidity. That's all the DUmbasses are good for.

Ah, you sacrifice all for the entertainment value. ;)

Sometimes, they are not so much entertaining as completely baffling.:confused:

Or infuriating, when they seek to spread hatred of all those who are different from them.

You're right, they do regret it. But they're too stupid to know how lucky they are that he isn't.

Here's another thread that's very similar but still entertaining:

The OP and a lot of others seem to get it:

Yes, bush is awful. Yes, he's perpetrated criminal acts. No, he's not in the same league as Hitler No matter how much you hate bushco, history cannot be revised for you. In order to be in the same league as Hitler, bushco would have had to do certain things:

Invade not just one country under a pretext, but several.

Deport Sunnis, say, to death camps and wipe out the majority of them.

Set up martial law here.

Set up concentration camps and death camps here.

Completely made protest or dissent illegal and punishable by death. Sorry, there haven't been any Sophie or Hans Scholls over the past 7.5
years, here in the U.S.

I can't figure out whether it's just that people are so (justifiably) angry at bushco that they're letting rage override knowledge and reason, or whether people actually don't know history. But if you actually bush is as bad as hitler and that gitmo is equivalent to Auschwitz or Dachau, you're simply in error.

No, that doesn't excuse bush. It doesn't make the deaths of those in Iraq any less tragic. It doesn't mean that Iraq wasn't a criminal endeavor- it was and is. And bush deserves to be sent to the Hague for war crimes, but it's still not equivalent. There are degrees of criminality. Remember how the neocons loved to compare Saddam to Hitler? Comparing bushco to Hilter is no more accurate. It's simply revisionism, and it dilutes history.

But then....

76. Dead is dead.
Acting as though trivialties like numbers matter to the victims is demeaning to Bush's hundreds of thousands of corpses and millions of grieving families.

You want to talk about perspective? The only perspective is the ability to imagine yourself holding the corpse of your toddler, pulverized into so much viscera and bone fragments and red mist by one of POS Bush's bombs.

All for the sake of Bush's fucking WHIM.

I realize that Bush's victims were somewhat dark-skinned, but they were still every bit as human as Hitler's European victims.

40. He's Hitler enough for me. The guy is itching to drop a nuke on Iran.
Maybe that would bring him to the OP's "Hitler" level?
