The 50 Most Controversial Tweets of Summer 2012

6. Republican Compares Obama To Stalin, Hitler

Date: August 5
Tweeter: @MarishaAgana
Tweet: “History has a way of repeating itself: Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse Tung and now Obama!!!”

Dr. Marisha Agana tried gaining some traction in her fight to win Ohio’s 13th congressional district seat by juxtaposing our nation’s leader to murderous dictators like Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. Agana opened the floodgates as a Twitter user shot her tweet over to a local news station, forcing the Republican to backtrack the statement and apologize for the “poor choice of analogy.” Good luck grabbing that distract seat.
