Obama’s Tea Party Cousin Thinks The President Is Hitler

Kansas Senate candidate Dr. Milton Wolf has compared President Barack Obama to Hitler.

The comparison is more surprising when you consider Wolf is a distant cousin of Obama’s. Wolf is running in the Republican primary to unseat incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS), who he said isn’t conservative enough.

As Mother Jones’ Tim Murphy noted on Friday, Wolf compared Obama’s treatment of “successful Americans” to the Nazi’s treatment of Jews.

Wolf also argued to another Twitter user that American liberals are virtually in lockstep policy-wise with Nazis.

“Other than killing Jews, what domestic policy of the Nazis do today’s American liberals oppose?” Wolf tweeted.

Wolf has, however, also heaped praise on Obama in the past.

“I speak for nobody but myself but we are all enormously proud of him and his achievement and it has been a tremendous honor to be in the family that gets put in the front row of history,” Wolf said in an interview with Fox News in 2010 also flagged by Mother Jones.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
