Victor Davis Hanson on the sickening tendencies of the Left to compare anyone they don't like to Hitler. And they really don't like Bush:
Ignorance and arrogance are a lethal combination. Nowhere do we see that more clearly among writers and performers who pontificate as historians when they know nothing about history.

On occasion, those who are tainted, sometimes unfairly, with past charges of rightist extremism, find some psychic release in calling an American democratic president or his conduct Nazi-like. Thus, a German politician, who de facto unfortunately operates under the suspicions of the post-Nazi world, gains the moral high ground and moral fides by gratuitously deflecting attention to an American — not as the descendant of the liberators of the Europe, but as the true inheritor of the German Hitlerian mantel.

George Soros can nearly destroy the Bank of England in his hyper-capitalist financial speculations but somehow find spiritual cover among the leftists of, which he subsidized and which ran ads comparing the president to Hitler. Sen. Byrd, who suffers from the odium of an early membership with the racist Ku Klux Klan, perhaps finds it ameliorative to associate others with the tactics of the 20th century’s premier racist.
This misery doesn't seem to stop. And besides being offensive and just plain wrong, there's another point that seems to elude a lot of people: By calling everyone 'Hitler' and 'Nazi' at the drop of a hat, they cheapen WW2, and what actually happened then. Something I'm not too sure of is accidental. But Hanson takes these losers to task. Must-read
