"Flyers In Michigan Compare Obama To Hitler’s Nazi Germany"

An anonymous group in Grand Rapids, Michigan is distributing flyers depicting President Obama as a white man with a black mask and a Nazi swastika. “The Holocaust is coming,” the flyers read, “Hitler’s Nazi Germany has been revived in the U.S. and the target is Americans.” Voters are referred “referred to a website to sign a petition that espouses tea party ideas and urges people to support Ron Paul”:

The flyer spouts the idea that there are military checkpoints throughout the country and that it “is legal to assassinate Americans.”

Obama’s health care bill is not a health care bill, instead it’s a total government takeover of every area of life (read the fine print) like gun confiscation, euthanasia and so on (euthanizing the poor, the elderly, the ill, those who’ve maxed out their health insurance and so on) there are no jobs and everyone will eventually be poor,” the card states. [...]

The literature offers no clue on who authored and distributed it. The image of Obama on the front comes from the two-hour political documentary “The Obama Deception.” The film from Alex Jones claims Obama has been installed by powerful families to act against the interests of the people.

Tea Party activists have long depicted Obama as a Nazi, and a Catholic Bishop recently claimed that Obama is following in the footsteps of Adolf Hitler. The view is even echoed by mainstream Republicans like Newt Gingrich. In his 2010 book To Save America, Gingrich argued repeatedly that the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress are a “secular-socialist machine” that “represent as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.”
