Media Matters - On Hannity & Colmes , Coulter again made Obama-Hitler comparison, said Clinton "would enjoy torturing" detainees: "During the April 3 edition of Fox News' Hannity & Colmes, conservative pundit Ann Coulter stated of Sen. Barack Obama: 'He's a dime store Mein Kampf.' Co-host Alan Colmes then asked if Obama 'is a two-bit Hitler,' to which Coulter responded, '[Y]es.' Colmes continued: 'We should be as wary of Obama as they should have been of Hitler in Nazi Germany?' Coulter responded: 'If only people had read Mein Kampf.' Earlier in the segment, citing her April 2 syndicated column, Coulter stated that Sen. John McCain 'may end up being the luckiest man in the world, running against this absolute racist Obama, as noted in my column.'"
As Media Matters for America noted, in her April 2 column Coulter wrote of Sen. Barack Obama's 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance: "Has anybody read this book? Inasmuch as the book reveals Obama to be a flabbergasting lunatic, I gather the answer is no. Obama is about to be our next president: You might want to take a peek. If only people had read 'Mein Kampf' ..." Mein Kampf, or "My Struggle" as translated from German, is the 1925 autobiography of Adolf Hitler and an exposition on National Socialist political theory, the ideological foundation of the Nazi Party.
Other conservative pundits have made Hitler references when talking about Obama. As Media Matters noted, on the February 11 broadcast of Fox News Radio's Tom Sullivan Show, host Tom Sullivan aired what he called a "side-by side comparison" of a Hitler speech and an Obama speech. On the February 22 edition of CNN Headline News' Glenn Beck, National Review Online editor-at-large Jonah Goldberg compared Obama and former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to Hitler.
