Townhall Columnist Compares Obama to Hitler

Townhall Columnist Compares Obama to HitlerI’m sure this has happened before, but after a great couple of days at CPAC, I thought this kind of thing was relegated to the fringes. I mean, our own Matt Lewis writes at Townhall. What is this, by Kevin McCullough, doing there?

This week President Obama exercised for the first time a policy decision that shares a trait held in common with Adolf Hitler.

Before he gets to this, he accuses Obama of being a socialist (guess he never read Adam Smith), and shows off a pretty strong homophobic streak:

Case and point (sic)… Rachel Maddow.

She is MSNBC’s less funny and perhaps more butch version of Keith Olbermann.

So, to what policy is he referring? Is it the wingnut civilian army conspiracy theory? No, this guy is comparing Barack Obama to Adolph Hitler because…he wants doctors and pharmacists to do their jobs. He wants them to act, medically, in the best interests of their patients. From our own Mark Impomeni:

President Barack Obama will rescind a Bush Administration rule that granted protection to doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care workers who refuse to perform or assist in abortions, sterilizations, and other contraceptive procedures on moral grounds.

Look,I get that there are reasonable objections to abortion, and even to contraception. That’s fine, then you need to get a job that won’t conflict with those beliefs. I don’t want my sister dying on some operating table because Jesus told her doctor to let her die.

I don’t want a raped child to be forced to carry her rapist’s spawn because the ER doc thinks she should. I don’t want any young woman to have to face judgment from some med school dropout who doesn’t want to sell her the pill. If you can’t handle counting pills, try flipping burgers or something.

This wouldn’t fly in any other situation. Notice how there’s no objection to Viagra in there. No, it’s OK to disregard women’s rights, though.

Would you partner with a cop who reserved the right not to shoot anyone? How about a fireman who only wanted to put out certain fires? I didn’t think so.

Like it or not, doctors and other medical professionals have a duty to their patients that must outweigh their personal beliefs.

As for comparisons to Hitler, he’s in good company, which means the GOP is in great shape to continue alienating moderates and independents.
