I went to Google Images and typed in "nazi brownshirts shouting down speakers." I got 2,240 images. Adding the word "-Obama," I got 568. Translated: roughly 75 percent of these images are trying to tell you that our President is a Nazi.Tonight in the comments, Anonymous wrote:
Try the same exercise but with "-Bush" instead.
Anon has as point. Repeating my exercise tonight on the original phrase, I get 2,230 (where did the other ten go?). Abstracting Bush, I get only 659. So, not much more than a rounding error. Of course, one could get into a diverting exchange over the issue of which President really did most resemble his great German forebear, but I would think that line of inquiry unprofitable (one of those occasions when I'm just as glad that I don't get many comments).
BTW, minus both Bush and Obama, I'm down go just 335. So only about one seventh of the images can show us brownshirts without invoking a more contemporary "parallel."
