la Fiesta de Vleeptron de las Pinturas con HitlerBush

The Memory Hole is one of my favorite websites in all of Cyberspace. Its creator, Russ Kick, sued the U.S. Government under the Freedom of Information Act to see, obtain and publish photographs of the flag-draped coffins of our (2000+) soldiers and marines killed in Iraq returning home to Dover (Delaware) Air Force Base. Before he sued, the US government kept these images secret, hidden, forbidden for American citizens to see.

Now all Americans can see what their government -- the Bush administration, the Puppet Republican and Democratic Congress -- has done, they can see what our crazy fucked-up war really looks like and really means.

Where do the bodies of dead UK soldiers return home? Can Her Majesty's Subjects see their fallen children's coffins draped in the Union Jack? If the soldiers were Scots, are their coffins draped with the Scottish flag? Welsh the flag of Cymru?

The Memory Hole reports:


The liberal activist site ran a contest, Bush in 30 Seconds, in which people were invited to create and submit political TV ads critical of the Bush Administration, with the winning entry to air in swing states and on national television. (CBS has refused to air the winning ad during the Super Bowl, however.)

Over 1,500 ads were submitted. Out of them, two compared Bush to Hitler. After years of talking about "feminazis" and "Hitlery" Clinton, the right wing suddenly felt that Third Reich references were absolutely indefensible. Republicans expressed new-found outrage, and the corporate media dutifully tsk-tsked. MoveOn pulled the ads from their contest Website.

Those two ads are presented above.

(According to the rules of the contest, all ads are under the Creative Commons license.)


The Republican National Committee

Monday, January 05, 2004 Should Apologize
for Ads Comparing Bush to Hitler

Washington, DC -- Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie today made the following statement regarding a second ad posted on the Web site comparing President Bush to Adolf Hitler and calls from Jewish leaders for to apologize for posting the ads. Both ads can be read at the following link:

"Yesterday, said an ad comparing President Bush to Adolf Hitler that it had posted on its Web site as one the group would consider selecting for $7 million worth of paid airtime was only one of hundreds submitted and that tried to screen out ads in such poor taste.

It now turns out that the ad was one of two submissions comparing President Bush to Hitler that the organization posted, further reflecting the group's view that this despicable tactic complied with its guidelines that submissions be: ‘really creative ads that will engage and enlighten viewers and help them understand the truth about George Bush. There are some legal limits on what you can do (see below), and we're not going to post anything that would be inappropriate for television, but other than that what you put in your ads is up to you (live action, animation, personal rant, whatever!)’(Source:

Such ads are anything but appropriate for television, and should apologize for posting the ads, as the Simon Wiesenthal Center today asked them to. Further, every Democrat seeking his or her party's nomination and who stands to benefit politically from's efforts to defeat President Bush in November though millions of dollars in advertising should support the Simon Wiesenthal Center's request, and urge to apologize for posting these ads on their Web site and deeming them appropriate for television."

ARE NOT MOVEON.ORG VOTER FUND ADS Voter Fund Regrets Screening Process Allowed Ads to Slip Through

Statement by Wes Boyd, Founder of Voter Fund:

The Republican National Committee and its chairman have falsely accused of sponsoring ads on its website which compare President Bush to Adolf Hitler. The claim is deliberately and maliciously misleading.

During December the Voter Fund invited members of the public to submit ads that purported to tell the truth about the President and his policies. More than 1,500 submissions from ordinary Americans came in and were posted on a web site,, for the public to review.

None of these was our ad, nor did their appearance constitute endorsement or sponsorship by Voter Fund. They will not appear on TV. We do not support the sentiment expressed in the two Hitler submissions. They were voted down by our members and the public, who reviewed the ads and submitted nearly 3 million critiques in the process of choosing the 15 finalist entries.

We agree that the two ads in question were in poor taste and deeply regret that they slipped through our screening process. In the future, if we publish or broadcast raw material, we will create a more effective filtering system.

Contrast this with the behavior of the RNC and its allies when supporters of President Bush used TV ads morphing the face of Sen. Max Cleland (D-GA) into that of Osama Bin Laden during the 2002 Senate race. and the Voter Fund exist to bring the public into the political process and produce a more fact-based election process. We regret that the RNC doesn’t seem to embrace the same goals.

The MoveOn family of organizations consists of three entities., a 501(c)(4) organization, primarily focuses on education and advocacy on important national issues. PAC, a federal PAC, primarily helps members elect candidates who reflect our values. And Voter Fund, a 527 organization, primarily runs ads exposing President Bush's failed policies in key "battleground" states.
