Brace yourselves—comparisons to brutal terror organizations are coming.

It’s election season, which means it’s time to start making strained comparisons between our opponents and various historical despots. The left enjoyed fantastic success after comparing George W. Bush to Hitler—and why not? Nothing says “leadership” like invoking the spirit of a madman who perpetuated genocide on three continents.

Hillary Clinton kept the tradition alive at a rally in Cleveland, where she compared GOP candidates’ efforts to protect life to the crimes committed by terrorist organizations.

…Marco Rubio brags about wanting to deny victims of rape and incest access to health care—to an abortion. jeb Bush says planned pare shouldn’t get a penny, your governor right here in ohio banned state funding for some rape crisis centers because they sometimes refer women to other health facilities that do provide abortions.

I would like these Republican candidates to look the mom in the eye who caught her breast cancer early because she was able to get a screening for cancer or the teenager who didn’t get pregnant because she has access to contraception. Or anyone who has ever been protected by an HIV test.

Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be President of the United States, yet espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century, for America. We are going forward! We are not going back!

Sort of makes you miss the days of “BusHitler,” doesn’t it?
