Hitler (probably) died in 1945 and yet his legend just keeps going and growing! The ultimate bad boy is far more popular in death than life, functioning as the go-to comparison for anything anyone doesn’t like!
Express mild criticism of Islam = HITLER
Prefer to have sex with people who identify as their birth gender = HITLER
Think Mad Men is obviously superior to The Wire = HITLER
You might even be LITERALLY HITLER! But you’ve got some competition for the title:
Yes, these days, everyone will be Hitler for fifteen minutes. Now it’s Abraham Lincoln’s turn!
Larry Pittman is a very very very Christian state rep in North Carolina who looks insane—
—and supports executing doctors who perform abortions, to give you a baseline of his political leanings.
So you can probably guess where the guy stands on legal gay marriage: it is the equivalent of Germany winning World War II.
Mr. Pittman was engaging with some constituents on his Facebook page when one implored him to abandon his quest to de-legalize same sex marriage in the state, asking him to “get over it.”
Larry’s measured response:
And if Hitler had won, should the world just get over it? Lincoln was the same sort (of) tyrant, and personally responsible for the deaths of over 800,000 Americans in a war that was unnecessary and unconstitutional.
Larry has since deleted this comment in question, but the original post is still up, so feel free to get in there and mix it up with either your condemnation or approbation of his opinion. It’s up to you!
You know the Lincoln/Hitler memes are forthcoming, putting ol’ “Honest” Abe in the same league as the following:
George W. Bush, the original Literally Hitler…
Obama: meet the new Hitler, same as the old Hitler…
Hillary Clinton, Hitler also-ran…
And of course, Literally Current Year Hitler:
