Des Moines JCRC deplores analogizing the president to Hitler and Lenin

Statement from JCRC       July 15, 2010
The Jewish Community Relations Commission of the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines, Iowa
JCRC deplores the rhetoric and imagery displayed on a billboard in Mason City analogizing President Obama to Hitler and Lenin.  Such analogies are distortions and are disrespectful of the president, those who were murdered by the dictators, and those whose families suffered the tragic loss of loved ones.
