Pennsylvania GOP disavows email likening Obama vote to rise of Hitler
By Haaretz Service and The Associated Press

Pennsylvania Republicans are disavowing an e-mail sent to Jewish voters that likens a vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama to events that led up to the Holocaust.

"Jewish Americans cannot afford to make the wrong decision on Tuesday, November 4th, 2008," the e-mail reads. "Many of our ancestors ignored the warning signs in the 1930s and 1940s and made a tragic mistake. Let's not make a similar one this year!"

The McCain campaign officially denounced the email too. Give McCain some credit. Deep down inside, he doesn't want to be evil.

Obama isn't perfect by a long shot. He's no budding Hitler though. To suggest that that's where his heart is, is stupid.

He's wrong on many points. He's a militant. He shouldn't be. He's a capitalist/corporatist. He shouldn't be. He's wishy-washy on homosexuality and other forms of harm that are hiding behind the term "tolerance." He shouldn't be. He is not though looking to commit genocide against the Jews or to facilitate those who want to. If he felt that way, he would never have chosen Joe Biden who is a self-described Zionist ready to fight to the death for the Herzl/Jabotinsky militant-Zionist Project. That's an error as well, but it does show he isn't in line with Hitler's thinking. Hitler would have been fine with exterminating every Jew if it meant imperial success for Germany. Germany first was his motto.

By the way, Haaretz says a "New Gallup poll shows 75% of U.S. Jews plan to vote Obama."

That shows that the most vocal Jews are not in the majority, far from it. When will those other Jews stand up? It is so strange that they are afraid of the minority of their fellow Jews. I'm not saying that voting for Obama is right versus voting for McCain. If I thought voting for either or anyone for secular office is the right thing to do, I'd do it.
