The Greatest Generation would be disgusted in today's right wing extremism

Wow I have to really hand it to fellow internet traveler Vicious Babushka who Tweets under that name and posts at the political weblog Little Green Footballs.  Vicious Babushka  actually took the time to wade through the Twitter swamp and collect dozens of Tweets that demonstrated Goodwin's Law in a variety of disgusting and ridiculous comparisons between Adolph Hitler and Barrack Obama that all fall hopelessly short of reality.

For those of you who are not familiar with Goodwin's Law, here is a snip from Wikipedia..
 Godwin's law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies or Godwin's Law of Nazi Analogies) is an argument made by Mike Godwin in 1990 that has become an Internet adage. It states: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1." In other words, Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler or the Nazis.
Here is the thread at Little Green Footballs where you can see the many examples of the steaming turd Tweets from people who are profoundly ignorant of the history of World War II and proud of it.

LGF:  Godwins of the Day: Jan, 17, 2013 -- It’s a Hitlerfest!

You should click the link and visit LGF to see firsthand the deranged hyperbola from dozens of unhinged extremist freaks.  These people are so far out of touch with reality that they can't see a difference between the evil monster who was responsible for the deaths of over 50 million people during World War II and the President who is attempting to make the USA a bit safer for children, policemen, and all of us by enacting a variety of very modest gun control regulations.

The Greatest Generation of Americans, who were sent off to fight and die in the most brutal and destructive war the world has ever seen along with those who stayed home and rationed, scrimped and worked tirelessly to aid the war effort to defeat Adolph Hitler and the Third Reich would be absolutely disgusted with these asinine comparisons offered up by blowhards tweeting under the cover of anonymous nicknames from their comfortable lazy boy recliners.

Barrack Obama is Hitler because he wants to take away some of their beloved toy guns.
