Dr. Kevin Barrett, adjunct instructor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has been hired to teach a course, Islam: Religion and Culture, at the university.

Some people are upset, according to CNN: University instructor likens Bush to Hitler

“Like Bush and the neocons, Hitler and the Nazis inaugurated their new era by destroying an architectural monument and blaming its destruction on their designated enemies,” he wrote.

Barrett said Tuesday he was comparing the attacks to the burning of the German parliament building, the Reichstag, in 1933, a key event in the establishment of the Nazi dictatorship.

“That’s not comparing them as people, that’s comparing the Reichstag fire to the demolition of the World Trade Center, and that’s an accurate comparison that I would stand by,” he said.

He added: “Hitler had a good 20 to 30 IQ points on Bush, so comparing Bush to Hitler would in many ways be an insult to Hitler.”

That last bit has to sting. Hitler was also a decorated combat veteran [World War I] and an accomplished public speaker, so there is no real basis for a comparison between the two men.

Bush is not Hitler, not even like him! Let me count the ways:

10.) Hitler did not come from a wealthly family

9.) Hitler, when young, went to fight in the war of his generation

8.) Hitler failed in his chosen career and never made any money by doing so

7.) Hilter went to jail…

6.) Hitler was an eloquent public speaker

5.) Hilter was elected by popular vote

4.) Hitler came to power in disastrous economic times

3.) Hitler had few issues with muslims but a lot of issues with jews

2.) Hitler led a bier putsch but never a kegger…

1.) Hitler had a plan

You know the worst part is that the Shrubbery wants power, but doesn’t want to do anything with it. He has no real vision. Help his friends, yes, but no real vision, which is why he had no real program beyond cutting taxes.
