OPINION, October 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- In a radio interview in 2001, Barack Obama likened the United States to Nazi Germany. The shocking statement was made in the same interview in which he lamented the "great tragedy" that the courts could not spread wealth through "redistributive change."
The web site Little Green Footballs broke the scoop that Obama compares the "doctrines of Nazism... to what we have going on, back here at home." The remark came during a discussion of the United States at the time of Brown vs. The Board of Education.
Obama said, "...just to take a, sort of a realist perspective…there's a lot of change going on outside of the Court, um, that, that judges essentially have to take judicial notice of. I mean you've got World War II, you've got uh, uh, uh, the doctrines of Nazism, that, that we are fighting against, that start looking uncomfortably similar to what we have going on, back here at home."
Senator Obama did not offer his critique of Nazism in July, when he spoke in Berlin to 200,000 cheering Germans in front of Hitler's Victory Column. Instead, he criticized America for actions that "have not lived up to our best intentions."
