Head of Russian Constitutional Court: Obama’s Speeches Similar to Hitler’s

The head of the Russian Constitutional Court Valery Zorkin has accused the United States of violating international standards of the United Nations and compared the rhetoric of U.S. President Barack Obama to that of Adolf Hitler, the RBC news agency reported Wednesday.

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the world community has been in deep military, political and economical crisis due to the rupture of the bipolar world and the establishment of the U.S. as the world’s single superpower, according to Zorkin.

“In the post-Soviet period, the United States has constantly ignored UN standards, just like Nazi Germany ignored the League of Nations,” Zorkin was quoted as saying by RBC.

U.S. President Barack Obama’s speeches increasingly mention the exceptionalism of America and the American people, Zorkin said, while its internal propaganda and foreign policy are aimed at building up the country’s military power.

“Any unbiased and educated man would see in Obama’s statements almost verbatim quotes of leading propagandists of the German Third Reich, including Adolf Hitler,” Zorkin said, RBC reported.
