An amazing, wonderful video: Charlie Chaplin's speech in The Great Dictator

Video description by thelakeysisters on YouTube:
(Song: Window by The Album Leaf) One of the most inspirational speeches in recorded history was given by a comedian by the name of Charlie Chaplin. If you like what you see please share the video any way you can and pass the message on.
I do, however, agree with this comment from tminusquigley on YouTube:
I truly love the message of this video, but this is from the movie The Great Dictator, and Chaplin is decrying the sins of fascism and of the dictators of the day. When he's talking about evil dictators, he's talking about Hitler and Mussolini, Goebbels and Goring. Our presidents have made mistakes, but the faces of the past presidents do not belong in the same reference as those men.
