No Hitler comparison

Arroyo GrandeMay 26, 2014 

In Paso Robles, I recently saw a sign saying “Impeach Obama.” Next to it was a photo of the president’s face altered to show him with a Hitler-style mustache.

I realize everyone in this country has a right to his or her personal opinion and I respect that. I could not care less whether someone likes or dislikes President Obama, and some of his actions have really troubled me. But to compare him to Adolf Hitler trivializes the deaths of millions of people and the attempted genocide of the Jewish population, and I find that to be vile and beyond repugnant.

I hope the person(s) responsible for this asinine and insensitive action refrain from displaying it again. Ever.
