After holocaust survivor groups and many on the organized Left objected, the North Iowa Tea Party has removed a billboard comparing President Barack Obama’s socialism to Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin.

“Radical leaders prey on the fearful & naive,” claimed the billboard, and had Obama’s “Democrat Socialism” between Hitler’s “National Socialism” and Lenin’s “Marxist Socialism.”

In his blog, communications specialist Michael Fiala of Mason City, Iowa explained, “The message they intended was to point out the similarities between Obama’s policies and the socialist policies of Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin like nationalized health care, the collusion of government and business to interfere with free markets, and government collaboration with labor unions aimed at control to name a few.”

Indeed, Hitler’s National Socialism bailed out the automobile industry in the depths of the depression, creating Volkswagen as a state socialist enterprise, similar to how the Bush-Obama policy utilized bailout funds to rescue General Motors and Chrysler.
