Defies my understanding.

2 Aug

Today at work I had to wait on a woman wearing a t-shirt bearing the likeness of Mussolini, Hitler and Obama, with a short and pithy legend equating the three ‘regimes.’

I may be wrong, but I fear that only those who lack the curiosity to educate themselves on the realities of life under either Hitler or Mussolini–for everyone, by the way–and the imagination to put themselves in the shoes of those who did live under them, can equate a president of the United States with them the other two.
