Keith Ellison's Delusion

By Michael Medved
"Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison recently compared President Bush to Adolph Hitler, suggesting Bush "exploited" 9/11, like Hitler used the Reichstag fire, to seize absolute power.

Those who defied Nazi propaganda ended up in concentration camp; those who denounced Bush propaganda got big book contracts and exclusive interviews on "60 Minutes" along with general adulation from the media establishment.

Of all the paranoid charges against the Bush administration, the silliest involves the suppression of dissent: from the time of the disputed election with Al Gore, millions of Americans loudly dissented from presidential policies and none of them--not one--has faced dire consequences. Even at the time of the president's greatest popularity, leftists energetically attacked him--protesting even against the invasion of Afghanistan. None of these critics suffered for his opinions and dissent remains lively, even ubiquitous, in today's America."

Furthermore, Bush has been called, or has been compared to Hitler, by those on the left, too many times to even remember them all, yet none ..... none .... "by George" .... have been thrown in jail because of it.

Nor has there been any accusations of the IRS being used to harrass, by way of audits, his critics; a favorite tactic of the Clinton administration.
