Putting Hitler and Stalin into proper “context”

Oliver Stone says his upcoming Showtime documentary series Secret History of America will put the 20th century’s star butchers Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin “in context.”

Hitler and Stalin

That Hollywood would glorify Stalin is hardly a shock to anyone. If you go back to many Cold War-era movies, you will find tortured excuses — even fulsome praise — for Mother Russia.

Only Nazi Germany was allowed to appear on the screen as evil incarnate. For decades, Hitler has been the perfect role model as villain — right out of “central casting.” The highest-priced Hollywood talent scout could not have given the movie moguls a better gift. Funny mustache, silly goose-step, the “Sieg Heil” salutes, a “Master Race” theory, his evil shouting speeches. And that’s before we even learned about the gas chambers and the Holocaust.

Stalin was smarter about his evil. He murdered millions — but — he did not shout himself hoarse in public. He kept his mouth shut, and just did it. A good Hollywood producer can’t do as much with that. Hitler, by contrast, was in the world’s face as he committed mass murder.

Seen on the Internet: Obama, Bush, and Hitler

ohb

I’ve read the recent posts regarding the comparisons between Hitler and Obama. It’s funny cause, after eight years of people calling Bush Hitler, they cry foul when Obama is called Hitler. Just where were those people from 2001-2008? Did these hypocrites ever address this when President Bush was being assailed? If you ask me, these Obama defenders are doing a tap dance around the abortion issue.

Those who compare Obama to Nazi’s are comparing him to Nazism in the earlier days with a belief that it could very well grow into what Nazism grew into. I don’t think these Obama defenders understand that the Christian principle of self-determination is the cornerstone of Western society. I think Obama defenders ignore the connections between between Hitler’s brand of socialism and Obama’s brand of socialism. The lesson should be that such zealots are capable of consequences that most would have believed when they voted for ‘change’.

Further more, There is no evil that exists in the world, proportionate to the evil of abortion. There is truly a culture of death amongst the socialists…the atheistic. Persons should not be surprised that when mankind teaches, promotes, supports, encourages and funds the slaughter of innocent defenseless little boys and girls throughout the whole world…that life becomes something trivial in significance and magnitude and dignity to the generations of persons being subjected.

To dismiss the actions of atheistic socialism as being unique to the Nazis is delusion. To dismiss drawn parallels and similarities of atheistic socialist ideals and philosophies and practices, as being unfounded simply because someone uses the most infamous scenario in the world, is disingenuous and pure denial of the truth. Those who like to dismiss the links between Obama and Hitler are in pure denial of the truth and sad to say are products of the system.

We slaughter over 50,000,000 defenseless little boys and girls every year in the world…and somehow the progressives believe this is a good. We promote assisted suicide in some states here and practice euthanasia at our nursing homes and somehow progressives see this as a good. Throughout the world the progressives call for the destruction of life, be it for economic, evnironmental, social or political “reason,” is is not a good but an evil. When progressives are more worried about whether Michael Vick had a hand in killing seven dogs so he can’t participate in their religion (sports and entertainment) and less worried that a mother like Whoopi Goldberg proudly and publicly claims to have slaughtered seven of her own children…their evil intents are as clear today as they were in 1940.

I know, it doesn’t begin with this administration, but this particular administration displays its atheistic socialism on its sleeve. Over time perhaps this could be good or could be at least weaved by God into a good as perhaps persons will finally have to separate themselves from what has been convenient for their own causes and move more away from the evils that are conveniently and passively not acknowledged.

The reason the national socialism failed then – it lied about the dignity of the human person – the reason it will always fail.
