Sykes, WTMJ Web site promoting comparisons between Obama and Hitler

Radio squawker Charlie Sykes is now using his Journal Communications Web site to make comparisons between Hitler and Obama and his administration and Nazis. Here's a sampling of the comments Sykes had approved at this post as of 7:53 AM this morning:

6:57 AM Ollie Green wrote ...Obama sends out his gestapo, the union thugs, to deal with citizens exercising their right to petition Congress.

7:06 AM Reba again wrote ...Hitler himself said "The day of individual happiness has passed." Obama keeps trying to deter the individual from thinking and acting on his own, and instead wants one collective populace that is easy to persuade. To be "free of freedom," just like the Nazi motto. If that isn't political terrorism, I don't know what is."The individual is the central, rarest, most precious capital resource of our society." - Peter Drucker. A nation of one can only go in 1 direction, failure. FREEDOM!!!

And another one from Reba:

I am not a racist, a Nazi, or a political terrorist. Neither is anyone in my family who shares my beliefs, or any of my friends. Although President Obama did side with Gates knowing only one fact, that he was African American and the officer was white. He also appointed Sototmayor, who believes a Latina can be a better judge simply because she is a Latina. Antisemitism was an ugly part of Nazi ideology, but so was the desire to gain control of every aspect of the citizen's life.
I don't expect to agree with Sykes, but I used to think he had some standards, some lines he wouldn't cross; that he wasn't, for example, Mark Belling, who uses his show to promote racial stereotypes. Remember when Sykes threw a flag on Mike Gableman? Yeah, good times.

I don't know if Sykes himself actually believes what the crazies above are suggesting, but since he's allowing these comments to appear at his site, he's probably decided it's good for his pocketbook. Pathetic.

  1. Well, the white house asking for citizens to turn each other in sure doesn't help things.

  2. And your evidence for that is...what exactly?

  3. -"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"
    -Taken from
    -"something ...that seems fishy" is a pretty broad statement, no?

  4. Yeah but you get so tetchy when we call you bald=faced liars.

  5. Obama is a Hitler wannabe.
    Ok, he isn't, but since it is on your web site, you are in the catagory as Sykes. (ok, you probably a make 1 or 2 dollars more than him a year, but otherwise....)

  6. Dan, the difference is that Whallah doesn't filter and approve comments. Sykes' site has to make the decision that a comment goes up where here any stupid stuff you write can be seen immeiately.

  7. So, Rabbit, you honestly think that was some sort of Orwellian effort to track innocent Americans? Really?

  8. Umm, Anonymous, have you ever been to Sykes's blog? Have you ever tried to post there? I don't think so or you wouldn't put out such false information.

  9. Yes, Dan. I've left comments at Sykes' site that fell down the memory hole and just never quite passed muster for his intern.

  10. MJM- no, and yes to tge same question.
    No- not orwellian in size.
    Yes- orwellian in possibility.
    The American government is asking for information on dissentian!!!
    No matter the "side", how is this acceptable in ANY form?!?!

  11. Grumps, you had that experience. Maybe you are the "enemy list" for Sykes. I've never had that problem. But hey, I get the same talking points from the same people as Sykes does.
