Another Tea Party-based comparison of Obama and Hitler pops up

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

We've heard for months now that Tea Party activists just aren't making comparisons between President Obama and the Nazis, despite the evidence to the contrary and the even more ludicrous attempt to blame this phenomenon on Speaker Pelosi. But here we go again:

A billboard created by an Iowa tea party group comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin is being condemned by other tea party activists.

The North Iowa Tea Party began displaying the sign in Mason City last week.

The sign includes photos of Obama, Nazi leader Hitler and communist leader Lenin with the statement: "Radical leaders prey on the fearful & naive."

The ad has reportedly been condemned by the national "Tea Party Patriots" group, but no word if the Tea Party Express (if you watched Fox News, you saw them) has made any sort of statement about it. Of course, their chairman called the president a "21st century Nazi."
