THIN SKIN IN THE GAME: Paste a Hitler mustache on a picture of your favorite political enemy and bingo, instant unspeakably evil monster. The American left has been engaging in this art form since at least Nixon, and reached its zenith with George W. Bush. Strangely, the moment some enterprising LaRouchie Tea Party crasher applied the same technique to a photo of The One, Lefty used the occasion to go berserk on the First Amendment via Hate Crimes legislation. Do these jackboots make me look fat? Okay, Hitler’s ears were not as pronounced as Obama’s, but if we go below skin depth, what do we find?
RELIGION: The Fuehrer could never have risen to power had he been unable to co-opt the already corrupted Church in Germany, which had long since abandoned the Bible as God’s Word in exchange for Higher Criticism. It would be crazy to see any parallel in Barry’s twenty-year discipleship in Jeremiah Wright’s Marxist Trinity United Church of Christ or his current spiritual guidance under Marxist Reverend Jim Wallis, not to mention support from Rick Warren, United Methodists, ELCA, Episcopals, PCUSA, etc., who for “the greater feel-good” were willing to overlook Obama’s pro-death logic - if you don’t know when life begins, kill it - position on inconvenient children and the “hopelessly” enfeebled like Terri Schiavo. Hey, chill out and get relevant, the Bible is just a book of stories written by men and not intended to be taken seriously. In Germany, Hitler’s only real opposition came from genuine Christians like Corrie ten Boom who wound up in a labor camp for hiding Jews. The only camp America’s mainline Church leaders are likely to see is Camp David, for an inter-faith arm-linking orgy.
