America's glamorous politician Sarah Palin is in the news again -- this time for endorsing an article which likens US President Barack Obama to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
In a message on her micro-blogging site Twitter's home page, the 46-year-old has urged her followers to read the article likening Obama to Hitler in the way the US President pressured British Petroleum to set aside US dollars 20 billion for oil spill damage claims, the 'politico.com' reported.
"This is about the rule of law vs. an unconstitutional power grab. Read Thomas Sowell's article," Palin said in her note to followers on Twitter.
The article the former Alaskan governor has pointed to was published on Monday in 'Investors Business Daily' and alikens Obama to Hitler, saying the US President is stripping away the freedom of his citizens without mass protest.
"When Adolf Hitler was building up the Nazi movement in the 1920s, leading up to his taking power in the 1930s, he deliberately sought to activate people who did not normally pay much attention to politics.
"In our times, American democracy is being dismantled piece by piece, before our very eyes by the current administration in Washington, and few people seem to be concerned about it," he wrote.
