The best is the little touches, like that they’ve had to substitute in a Latin font for Lenin’s supposed slogan (Cyrillic being rather unintelligible to most people), or the use of “Democrat” (rather than Democratic (an old favourite with the GOP).

The irony is that “fearful and naive” applies most appropriately to themselves, of course (who were the fearful in Nazi German and Soviet Russia, one wonders?).

If this poster is telling the truth, Obama is to the right of Hitler and to the left of Lenin. No mean achievement.

Why no pictures of those evil anti-capitalists General Pinochet, or King Leopold II on that Tea Party poster I wonder?

I’m remembering something I think it was Will Hutton said, that US
society puts quite an extreme emphasis on property rights. Hence
all the stuff along the lines of “a rise in the Capital Gains Tax will lead to
the Gulag.”
