Liberty Bound is the name of a video documentary.1 In that documentary, Christine Rose makes the following observations about Hitler:
  1. Not elected by a majority vote
  2. His legitimacy was disputed
  3. Many people considered him a simpleton
  4. His arrogance infuriated many foreign leaders and citizens of Germany
  5. He proclaimed the Reichstag fire was a terrorist act
  6. He proclaimed an all out war on terrorism
  7. The terrorists he identified as the Jews from the Middle East
  8. He passed legislation to fight terrorism and to fight Judaism
  9. The legislation took away constitutional rights of free speech, privacy, and habeas corpus
  10. The police could intercept mail and wiretap phones
  11. Those labeled as suspected terrorists could be held without charges and without access to attorneys
  12. Police could use warrantless sneak-and-peak tactics
  13. He rallied patriotism toward the "homeland"
  14. The flag was everywhere
  15. He said, "An evil exists that threatens every man, woman, and child of this great nation. We must take steps to ensure our domestic security and protect our homeland."
  16. He then created the secret police-the Gestapo

These points are why people refer to George W. Bush as Hitlerian.

All these tactics have been used by George W. Bush.
