Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Benito Mussolini were very popular at the time, but they were not presented with the Nobel Prize. Yet, they were nominated for same.
If we look down the history from 1900 to 2009, we will find only one person who was extremely popular and talked about like President Obama. That person is Adolf Hitler, leader of the Nazi Party and chancellor of Germany.
Despite both men’s popularity; there are more scary similarities between these two leaders:
Both Obama and Hitler share similar ancestries: Obama German, Hitler Austrian.
Both leaders had been surrounded by many controversies concerning birth certificate, citizenship and religion.
Both had the father figure issues. Obama’s parents separated when he was two years old and they divorced in 1964. His father returned to Kenya and saw him only once more before dying in an automobile accident in 1982. Hitler had a troubled relationship with his tradition-minded authoritarian father, who frequently beat him.
During their teenage years both leaders had problems with alcohol. Obama called the alcohol phase “greatest moral failure”, Hitler called it “most humiliated experience in life”.
Both are unloved by the Jewish, for Hitler is well known why, for Obama, well, his victory in Presidential elections was not received with welcome in Israel.
Time magazine named Obama person of the year in 2008, Hitler in 1938.
Both had bestseller books: Obama had “Dreams of my Father” (memoir) and “the Audacity of Hope” (political convictions), Hitler had “Mein Kampf (My Struggle) in Volumes 1 and 2. It combines elements of autobiography with an exposition of Hitler’s political ideology.
Obama was influenced by Martin Luther King, Hitler by Martin Luther.
Both Obama and Hitler came to power during the recession-depression; Obama in 2009, Hitler in 1933.
Both are personality cult leaders, portrayed as saviors of political and economical depression; Obama as an American savior, Hitler as German. A cult of personality arises when a country’s leader uses mass media to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.
Both are/were very gifted orators, having ability to attract great interest in their speeches. Both have/had hand gestures when giving a speech.
Both leaders had initiated health reforms, environmentalism and animal protection rights, among others.
