Today I read in the paper that the Tea Party goers were Nazis because they __________. A couple of days ago, I read that Obama was a Nazi because he ____________. Dick Cheney is a Nazi, Nancy Pelosi is a Nazi, Bush is Hitler, Clinton is Hitler, the old people and the young people and the gays and the Mormons are all Nazis--because they don't agree with those on the other side.
Really? Really, really, really? Aren't there any other bad guys they could make synonymous with the Democrats or the Republicans?
How about Stalin? He was arguably an even badder dude than Hitler. He killed way more Jews, homosexuals and guys that disagreed with him. Don't forget about the millions of Russians.
Then there's Alexander the Great. Great? Was he great? 'Cause it seems like he just destroyed his way through Europe and Asia and didn't care much how many people were in the towns he torched.
Next time you need to critique Hillary, how about comparing her to the Countess of Blood--you know the chic that liked to bathe in the blood of young virgins?
There is no shortage of pysychopathic bad guys. Jack the Ripper and Jeffrey Dahmer don't even hold a candle to Robespierre, Caligula, and Attila the Hun. They were so freaking wicked that you could use their names to describe Glenn Beck.
My point is that if you don't like a person or a belief they hold, let's see if we can't be more creative in our name calling. I'm just bored with the whole "Nazi" comparison. It was only an effective critique when Elaine used it.
