Hillary Clinton compares Putin's actions to Hitler's

Published: Wed, March 5, 2014 @ 2:01 p.m.

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton likened Russian President Vladimir Putin's actions on the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine to those of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.

Clinton made the comments Tuesday during a fundraising luncheon for local Boys and Girls Clubs, the Press-Telegram of Long Beach reported.

Putin contends ethnic Russians in Ukraine need to be protected. Clinton said that's what Hitler did when he maintained ethnic Germans outside Germany in places such as Czechoslovakia and Romania were not being treated right and needed to be protected.

"Now if this sounds familiar, it's what Hitler did back in the '30s," Clinton said, according to the newspaper. "All the Germans that were ... the ethnic Germans, the Germans by ancestry who were in places like Czechoslovakia and Romania and other places, Hitler kept saying, 'They're not being treated right. I must go and protect my people.' And that's what's gotten everybody so nervous."

The newspaper quoted Clinton as saying Putin is a man "who believes his mission is to restore Russian greatness."

"When he looks at Ukraine, he sees a place that he believes is by its very nature part of Mother Russia," she said at the private event.

Hillary got her Hitler analogies mixed up. The duly elected government of Ukraine was violently deposed by a fascist coup led by the Right Sector, a vicious right-wing outfit which traces its origin to the Ukrainians who sided with Hitler during WWII. Hitler also led a fascist Putsch in Germany in his road to totalitarian rule. Putin is hardly a fascist, which is more than can be said for the current rules of this besieged country.
