  •  BTW (none)
    People who complain about comparing the GOP to the Nazis are in danger of repeating the mistakes of history.
    They say; "Nobody could ever be as bad as the Nazis, so don't employ hyperbole and exaggeration or you will sound silly!"
    That line of reasoning could dismiss otherwise obvious comparisons.
    •  I like the way the conservatives (none)
      blame the loss of Vietnam on the protesters the same way the Nazis blamed the loss of World War I on the Jews and other November criminals.

      (Both accusations fail to take the FACTS into account.)

      Find scapegoats, intimidate dissenters, exploit all hyper-active patriotic sentiments.

      It's so easy to see current Repug talking points in a 1940s German version of Fox News:

      "The Russians desperate defense of Stalingrad proves we're winning!"

      "Why are you liberals so upset about the camps? They're only Jews and they are enemies of the state. And they aren't treated that bad. They get two kinds of fruit and Noodles Jefferson!"

      "It doesn't matter what Hitler does, The Angry Left will never give him a break!"

      America: It's a good IDEA for a country ...
