    Anyone who calls 9/11 victims "little Eichmans" gets no support from me and he sure as hell is not anything I'd ever come close to defending.

    I consider it highly offensive hate speech - and I don't support hate speech.

    •  What would you call a person who... (none)
      actively supports and/or helps implement those policies of the US government which greatly contribute to the people of certain countries getting screwed over in terms of their ability to use the resources of their own lands, their access to human rights and most of all, the very lives of themselves and their families?

      I think it is that type of person that Churchill was referring to as 'little Eichmans'. He was not referring to just anyone who happened to be in the World Trade Center or the Pentagon on 9/11.

        I would call them George Bush lovers...

        I read the essay, and he was refering to 9/11 victims flat out. I don't give him the benefit of spin.

        I feel dirty even discussing Churchill. Boils my blood.

          So, GregNYC.  

          I see that you're going around and troll rating people you don't like.  For example, you gave this comment of mine a zero:

          Very cool (none / 1)

          I want one.

          This comment was about a new airplane someone had posted on.  Hardly troll-like, I think you'd have to agree.  The (none / 1) there is your zero.

          Because I've never had an exchange with you before, this could only be in response to a comment you'd made earlier, on a different thread and many hours before, that I gave a two.  I gave it a two because you were getting offensive, and you were troll rating the other person for disagreeing with you.  It didn't warrant a one, because you had a point that was worth considering.  Here's the comment:

          First of all, calm the fuck down.
          Second, I'm simply stating their (sic) are specific guidelines outlined by Kos that should be reiterated. I didn't make the guidleines, Kos did.
          Watch who you speak to with your nasty mouth. I don't put up with that shit.

          I also notice this wasn't an isolated incident.  You also gave a zero to dddemocrat, on a different thread, 70 seconds after you rated mine.  Hard to believe that you stumbled on his comment in so short a time after rating mine, on a thread that long.  More likely, you were hunting people down you didn't like, and troll rating anything you found.  It too was not a negative comment, and was part of a thread of joking comments being bandied back and forth.

          See, here's the deal Greg.  In the past, people have been banned for this very same behavior.  It is flat out not okay.  I'm pointing this out to you so you are aware of this policy of the site.  And I'm shining a light on it so that everyone can see what's going on.  

          Do you really want to go down this path?

        Problem with that is he is labeling people just like some other folks did in the 40's.

        Label it, reduce it to a thing, remove it. Sleep well.

        Churchill's basic idea, borrowed from Malcolm X's response to the Kennedy assassination, is valid.  But, his labeling is no better than American Calvary labeling Native Americans as sub-human and therefore expendable.

        Both notions are equally offensive.
