White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed Godwin’s Law IRL today, falling back upon the Neo-con tried-and-true method of comparing each and every foreign leader whose country they and their allies wish to bomb to Hitler. The New York Times reports:
Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, set off an intense backlash on Tuesday when he suggested that President Bashar al-Assad of Syria was worse than Hitler and said incorrectly that Hitler had not used chemical weapons during World War II or against his own people.
Mr. Spicer was attempting to lend gravity to the actions of Mr. Assad, who United States officials believe used sarin gas, a lethal chemical weapon, in an attack on a rebel-held area of Idlib Province last week that killed dozens.
Qaddafi was Hitler.
Saddam was Hitler.
Milosevic was Hitler.
Everyone is Hitler.
