Last night this Tweet was sent by Texas Republican Rep. Randy Weber.
Even Adolph Hitler thought it more important than Obama to get to Paris. (For all the wrong reasons.) Obama couldn’t do it for right reasons

Allow me to address this from the perspective of a Jew who spends most of his day writing about politics from the point of view of a conservative Republican:
EXCUSE ME? Hitler? REALLY?? How dare you cheapen the memory of the Holocaust with inappropriate references. I believe Barack Obama is a lousy president, I would even say he is as lousy (or worse than) Jimmy Carter.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
am sick and tired of Politicians and their fake Shoah references (Shoah
is the word Jews use for the Holocaust it’s Hebrew for Disaster).
Rep. Weber allow me address the charges you made against my colleagues and me by asking you some questions:
Rep. Weber..I have many relatives with this on their did Obama force people to do this?
Hitler choose that method of Identifying my relatives because tattooing is prohibited in the Jewish faith.
Is that what you meant when you compared me to Hitler?
Rep. Weber, I never met some of my family because Hitler killed
them and buried them in mass graves or cremated their bodies. When you
compared Obama to Hitler were you saying he does that to people?
Are any of your relatives in this photo?
after the Nazi’s gassed their victims they collected
their hair, their clothes, glasses, gold teeth and even artificial
limbs to be used by the Reich. With the comparison you made on Sirius/XM were you saying I do that after I post a story?
Did Obama have people’s artificial legs recycled after they were stripped naked and gassed?
When you compared Obama to Hitler, did
you mean he does horrible things like gassing innocent victims, collecting their gold teeth and artificial limbs?
IMHO Barack Obama is the worst president in my 57 year lifetime, and he should have been in Paris on Sunday, but if he didn’t force people to put
tattoos on their arms, crowd them in to death camps where they would
suffer torture till they were gassed, shot, or died some other horrible
death, followed by mutilating their corpses by taking out what can be
reused–if we didn’t do any of that, or anything like it…your
comparison to Hitler, is not only false and inappropriate, but it
cheapens the memory of the who suffered during the Holocaust and those
who try to honor their memories.
Why do you cheapen the memory of what Hitler did to my
You want to call Obama names go ahead it’s still a free country, but leave the Shoah out of it!
Rep. Weber please take this from someone who is a very conservative Republican…. for making that statement you are a PUTZ, not only did you become a new example of bigoted Republicans for the Democratic Party to wave around, but even more importantly you owe all the victims of Hitler, Jewish or Gentile, an apology!
UPDATE: I sent this post to Rep Weber and he sent back this statement:
“I need to first apologize to all those offended by my tweet. It was not my intention to trivialize the Holocaust nor to compare the President to Adolf Hitler. The mention of Hitler was meant to represent the face of evil that still exists in the world today. I now realize that the use of Hitler invokes pain and emotional trauma for those affected by the atrocities of the Holocaust and victims of anti-Semitism and hate.
The terrorist attacks in Paris should remind us of the evil that still exists. Hitler was the face of evil, perpetrating genocide against six million Jews and millions of other victims. Today, we are facing the evil of Islamic extremists who are attempting to instill fear and murdering the lives of innocent people from Paris to Nigeria to Jerusalem and all over the world. The President’s actions or lack thereof is my point of contention. Islamic extremists have shown they are not going away, and instead are hungry for more blood.
After World War II, the world made a commitment to ‘Never Again’ allow terror free reign. As demonstrated by the Paris Peace Rally, we must all –Christians, Jews, Muslims, leaders around the world and those willing to fight for freedom – unite and stand strong together against radical extremism in any form.
