From abortion to gun control to immigration, there’s a wingnut meme with HITLER!!!!! and generic TYRANNY!!!!!!
Who thinks Obama is Hitler? Conservative columnist Thomas Sowell. A few days before the 2008 presidential election, Sowell penned a broadside against then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama’s call for “change” in American life. Warning that it could mean anything, Sowell pointed to examples of “change” that claimed millions of lives. “[M]any today seem to assume that if things are bad, “change” will make them better. Specifics don’t interest them nearly as much as inspiring rhetoric and a confident style. But many 20th-century leaders with inspiring rhetoric and great self-confidence led their followers or their countries into utter disasters. These ranged from Jim Jones who led hundreds to their deaths in Jonestown to Hitler and Mao who led millions to their deaths.”
There’s still time, but thus far, President Obama has not led hundreds of his followers to suicide or condemned millions of Americans to death.
Wingnuts loves ‘em some memes, and Tweet them over and over!
Here are some of the stupidest memes of 2014:

Feel the love! David Ferguson reports.
On Tuesday, Tea Party favorite Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) posted video of far-right Christian pastor Robert Jeffress delivering the opening prayer in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The controversial pastor was reportedly there in Washington at Gohmert’s request.
Jeffress is the head of First Baptist Church, a megachurch located in Dallas. In the past, the outspoken evangelical has called Mormonism a cult, creating waves during Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA)’s presidential run in 2012.
And off course, we can be certain that Louie Gohmert defends all of this.
Petula Dvorak has posted an excellent commentary on the Washington Post’s website about Pamela Geller’s recent anti Muslim bus ad campaign featuring the monster. This is also a pretty good commentary on Godwins in general.
I would like my D6 bus without a side of Hitler, please.
Twenty Metro buses are crisscrossing the nation’s capital with Der Führer on their sides for the next month, thanks to an incendiary, anti-Muslim ad campaign by the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
The westbound D6 featured a PNC Bank ad early Monday. Whew. But Shanna Dick is ready for Hitler’s face if it ever appears on that route.
“I just want to draw a big crucifix over his face, so I don’t have to look at it,” said Dick, 44. “Two wrongs don’t make a right. Hell isn’t big enough for him. And the side of a city bus isn’t the right place for that kind of evil, either.”
Adolf Hitler is a little too present these days.
This isn’t very surprising coming from Geller; she’s made this baseless claim about Hitler before along with other “counter Jihad” bloggers. Truth be told it makes far more sense to blame Christianity for Hitler’s antisemitism. Based on what he wrote he sure sounds like he was a Christian. Also look at the long history of antisemitism in Christian Europe. However, that too would be unjustified as well, given the fact that among other things, many devout Christians opposed the Nazis and were horrified by their racist ideology. This is just another example of demonization of a minority.
Brian Tashman reports on the paranoia, fear mongering, demonetization, and Godwin spewing.
Anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller is outraged that the USC Shoah Foundation, a genocide history project founded by Steven Spielberg, is giving an award to President Obama at its upcoming “Ambassadors for Humanity” gala.
Geller, who believes Obama is “single-handedly paving the way for the next holocaust,” told WorldNetDaily that the award “is illustrative of the willful blindness of liberal Jews” who have “traded their religion” and “traded G-d (and their morality)” for political clout.
“Shame on Steve Spielberg for rendering ‘never again’ an empty slogan, devoid of meaning,” she said.
WND editor Joseph Farah, evangelist Ray Comfort and Laurie Cardoza Moore of the Christian Zionist group Proclaiming Justice to the Nations also denounced the USC Shoah Foundation, likening the group to Nazi appeasers.
Our own Vicious Babushka said it best.
For Geller and the rest of these idiots, just replace “on twitter” with “on the internet.”
The three major Axis powers — Germany, Japan, and Italy — committed a host of catastrophic errors during the war. But some of these miscalculations were considerably worse than others. Here are the most significant blunders made by the Axis during WWII.

Late last year we told you about the 8 worst mistakes made by the Allies during the war. Time now to turn our attention to the most serious mistakes made by Axis planners. The list, which is ordered (somewhat) chronologically, addresses planning and strategic errors rather than operational ones.

Rebecca wrote it in response to this horrifically stupid thing that Tequila recently wrote,
Not sure if I should label her a wingnut or a Moonbat, but she really is far out there.

Randall Gross left a comment, and based on what he pointed out, I think its safe to say, she’s a wingnut of some kind.
