Obama-Hitler Signs

Remember how shocked and appalled the media were at the sight of Obama-Hitler signs at some Tea Party gatherings. They used that to argue that the Tea Party was racist.

Conservatives argued that the signs were being held by Lyndon LaRouche supporters, not Tea Partiers, but the media ignored that.

Well, now similar signs are showing up at the Occupy DC protests. I'm waiting for bated breath to hear all the hand-wringing about the ugly racism underlying the Occupy movements.

Of course, these are the same wacky LaRouche people. And they're mighty annoyed that the media didn't give them the credit before when the media didn't give them credit for their signs that they held up at Tea Party events. What do you bet that, if there is any mention of these signs at Occupy events, the media will be sure to blame the LaRouchites instead of any of those well-intentioned protesters? And we'll never see any backtracking on the claims that the media made previously?

This is an easy one. Anybody who makes a Hitler comparison, whatever side, is an idiot and a disgrace. There is certainly enough (on both sides) to criticize without the Hitler comparisons. Condoning it for your side, or blaiming it on the "lamestream media" or "agents provocateur" is almost as pathetic. The "occupiers" doing this are morons, and others on the left should shout them down.

Yeah, I'm sure that the OWS nation will shout down there only little coterie of Marxists. Odd though at the one TP gathering I went to the LaRouchites made no attempt to infiltrate the meeting but stayed on the periphery but were still abused.
