    Arguably conservatives are worse, but I have seen too many Israeli-Palestinian diaries where everyone thinks comparisons to Nazis and fascists are the only way to communicate the severity of the circumstance.  They will defend their right to make such comparisons with ridiculous fervor.  Personally, I think it demonstrates a lack of imagination when it comes to communicating ideas.  Ultimately such comparisons, consistent with Godwin's law, undermine their persuasive capacity.
