Putting Donald Trump into perspective

If we must yield to Godwin's Law in hyperbolizing about the less lesser of weasel presidential candidates, let's agree that Trump is not Hitler, neither by villany, political accumen, IQ, nor charisma. If Trump is a Nazi he's a dead ringer for Nazi blowhard Hermann Göring, self-aggrandizing Lord Fontleroy of the Luftwaffe, minus the hair.

First they came for the Communists, but we don’t like Communists…

First they came for the Communists,? and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, ?and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews,? and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for me? and there was no one left to speak out for me.   These famous words float an admonition, but isn't it more likely an adage? They describe the passivity which permitted Hitler's abuses, but could apply to the ordinary manifestation of totalitarianism. Has human nature yet learned except in hindsight? First they came for the Communists, but we all spoke out, the end. That's because the big lie is "they." Try substituting "we" and you see the tsunamic inevitability of mob ethnocentrism. First we came for the Communists, Trade Unionists, and Jews, then him, then her, pure fun until it was me. Oops. 25446

Here’s an interesting challenge.

Since the Republican't Party is taking their senate still-minority, and running it up as a National Mandate to repeal Health Care, why not have a two-part challenge. For the Democrats, have a lame duck vote and put the public option in to Health Care right where it belonged all along. You'd get back the independent voters who stayed away in droves. For the Republicans and TeaBags, first, you're complete idiots. As evidenced by your Twitter hero who tweeted thus: "We should do to LIBERALS what Hitler did to the JEWS, give them a chance to RENOUNCE Liberalism, if they do not, send them to ovens-PatInMichigan" See, we try not to call y'all a bunch of Nazis, then you let a Jackass like that who is One Of Your Own, call you Nazis who have a strong desire to Kill Your Fellow Americans. Even though you have a cop-out you've already played again and again, that anybody who doesn't agree with your Whore of Babylon Palin is "not a REAL American". Which shows the depth of both your hatred and stupidity. The challenge for YOUR party would be along the lines of, either YOU take out YOUR (he's white too but that's just a coincidence, right?) Trash

Glenn Beck exposes himself publicly!

OK, not like THAT, but with his newest Crusade/Jihad/RightWing Terrorist campaign against Gays. Not just gay rights, but Gay PEOPLE. You know, Human Beings created in the Image of God, the same God Glenn Beck claims to worship? I know there's an internet rule that arbitrarily prohibits people from comparing others to the Nazis, even when they behave like Nazis... Something that is of enormous benefit mainly to those who behave like Nazis and just don't want to be noticed in their Nazi-like behavior. But this behavior of his is much like the "special" Kamaradisch relationship between Ernst Rohm, Adolf Hitler and Josef Goebbels. By the way, the literal translation of Kamarad is reported to be "bedfellow". Somebody who spreches die Deutcsh better than I do would have to confirm or cancel that one. In a less apocryphal statement, guys who are most freaked out by Homosexuality are usually afraid that they themselves might be attracted to other men. So perhaps this is Beck's way of outing himself.

Hummel volunteers were unfit for Nazis

Godmother Superior of kitsch, Maria Innocentia Hummel, intended her “Volunteers” to be a plea for peace. The forlorn would-be soldiers were an insult to Hitler, but a half century later, the United States would pervert Hummel’s satire and enlist the little boys into the war against Iraq.
