Valid hitler Comparison

We know (or should know) that no argument can maintain any semblance of rationality when the comparison is made to a certain Austrian corporal. This one is valid because it's, well, hitler.

Dr. Seuss's hitler
Skimming through old newspapers on-line as any good genealogist does, I was startled to see der fuehrer's face. And startled again to see the artist's name. I thought it was worth sharing.

We know Disney also got into the war propaganda act with Donald's Duck's version. I captured a more pleasant scene from the end of the cartoon:


We need more love for Lady Liberty in our political discourse these days, and certainly fewer fuehrer comparisons.

  1. I tried watching that short cartoon recently, as I like Spike Jones and had performed this in college, but the huge amounts of nasty race characterizations made me never want to see it again.

    1. Yeah. It's pretty hard to get through.
