Agree, but he(Htiler) was more closely aligned with rightwing ideology than leftwing ideology and Chavez natrually was the opposite, although as you noted both wanted complete power and had control overthe media.<quoted text>
Hitler was a madman. He can't be equated with any party or ideology in this country. He just wanted complete government and military control and systematically succeeded in going about getting it. It helped that he had the media under his control.
So if there's any similarities whatsoever, it would be the control factor. Chavez also succeeded in having complete control over the media and the private sector. He, too, redisributed the wealth by simply confiscating businesses he thought the government should own. But he wasn't the monster Hitler was either - just controlling.
Same similarities, however.
Any suggestions that Obama wants complete power and has control over the media is assinine and anyone who thinks that might want to check in at their local mental health clinic.
On a side note Hitler wasn't in favor of any wealth distribution and was firmly in bed with the industrialists.
