    I have considered this every time I read something where another is claiming, "Their Nazi's".


    Who would you say is actually has a Nazi mentality?

    I have my own thoughts on this but, I'd like to hear from both sides who they think act like Nazi's and why you think that?

    This. And the number of times that Hitler and his elk are invoked to make a political statement is a disgusting insult to those who died.

    I'm looking into that. If murder is committed in a manner unseen by the world would that suffice for your definition?

    I disagree with you.

    It is a vital part of history for everyone to reflect on and look at the propaganda that was used while the world stood by and millions were destroyed or maimed in the quest for a supposedly superior race of people.




    To me when I see people say things like this it invokes thoughts of people that followed and assisted Hitler's quest to conquer humanity.

    Sure, it is a vital part of history to look back and reflect. However, to compare every bullshit politician statement that is likely twisted into something else cheapens the death of 11 million people and the scores of others who died fighting for freedom.

    First of all, Douger's quote looks like a poor attempt at humor, not an expression of opinion.

    Every comparison between a current leader or faction and "Hitler" or "Nazis" is always fueled by hyperbole - in fact, a piece of "propaganda" itself. And just like almost all propaganda, it's at least partially true. Obama is just like Hitler - in the sense that he speaks well. Bush is just like Hitler - in the sense that he worked to consolidate power in his administration. Except neither killed 11 million people.

    And it's pretty bad taste, don't you think? To piss on the memories of all the dead (including members of my family) for a cheap political point?
