State school-board president defends Hitler post on Facebook

State Board of Education President Debe Terhar said she was not comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler when she posted a photograph of the Nazi leader on her Facebook page with a message critical of the administration’s new gun-control efforts, the Columbus Dispatch reports. But she does say we “need to step back and think about it and look at history” to see that tyrants have disarmed their citizens. Terhar, a Cincinnati Republican elected last week by the 19-member school board to a second term as its president, recently posted the picture with this commentary: “Never forget what this tyrant said: ‘To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.’ — Adolf Hitler.” The photograph apparently originated with the Facebook page of Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children, which features a variety of anti-Obama, pro-gun posts and photos, such as scantily clad women hoisting large guns, a polar bear with the words “Holy f*** I’m glad I’m white,” and another saying “Where’s Lee Harvey Oswalt when you need him?”

    Her comments are definitely not what you would want to hear from a person in her position. I will even go as far to say that they are truly racist in nature. NO ONE would have dared to say anything nearly as defamatory when Bush was president, for fear of being blackballed either socially or employment-wise – even though his policies led to an unjustiable war, loss of lives and economic disaster. America has reached a point where ANYTHING is not only permissible (“First Amendment”) but it is even ethically and/or morally exceptable – all because we have a president whose looks and name don’t fall into what has been the ‘norm’.
