American Thunker: Barack Obama is just Like Adolf Hitler?

Bart Willruth at American Thunker asks, "Does this sound like the country you know (knew)?" Willruth asks this after he insanely equates nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, N. Korea, Cuba, Yugoslavia and China with the Obama Administration. What compelled Wallruth to make this syllogistic fallacy? I don't really know, but the faux issue he is so scared of is this post on the White House blog. The post asks people to send anti-health care reform emails they receive to a White House email address. The blog post says:
"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov."
OK the White House is using technology to combat what they believe is disinformation. How is that comparable to regimes that arrest opposition at best and kill them at worst.

Willruth asks, "Are we now like one of those totalitarian states?" This question is being asked now, after the past decade. The decade of wiretapping and "see something say something."

Willruth writes:
"Our forebears sacrificed so much to pass on the blessings of liberty. The least that we can do in the shadow of those heroes is to exercise our right to speak, and to do so out loud, not in whispers fearing that someone will forward our thoughts to the Watchers. These intimidating tactics must end."
He does not explain what is intimidating about the White House request. It is obvious that Wallruth is comfortable with lies that mislead debates on important issues. But it is clear that Wallruth is entirely comfortable making really poor ad hominem attacks. Sphere: Related Content
