Those comparisons are incredibly unfair if we're comparing the American far-right to the NSDAP during the war, but the NSDAP was also initially a fringe movement that was treated dismissively until it suddenly had far more power than anyone had imagined it could ever achieve. It's a warning to not ...

I think I'm out of this discussion. Doesn't seem like anyone is going to budge from their preconceived notions. I think an overuse of Nazi comparisons contributes to the rise of Nazi elements. I think increased radicalization on both the right and the left is a problem. I think reconciliation betwee...

https://news.yahoo.com/rudy-giuliani-suggests-cutting-heads-155445031.html Is Giuliani the fringe of the Republican party? :scratch: It's unlikely (though I guess possible) that Guiliani was being literal with his comments. It's pretty easy to interpret that as saying the Clintons should be removed...

We live in a country where people are being killed for dissident views on this subject. Why are you in denial of this fact? This is not a "dog whistle", it is a fact that extreme right is extremely violent. We live in a country where people are shot up by islamist extremists for attending...

On a more serious note, I think the rhetoric that Trump and his MAGAs are just like the nazis is dangerous in a "boy who cries wolf" fashion. If you wind the clock back, you will find many harsh rhetorical statements about Mitt Romney and George Bush. Nowadays both men seem to have found a...

I feel like Nazi and Hitler comparisons are cop out comparisons, because when people use them, they think what's the lowest level I can compare a person too... Hiter! And that's why it's often used, because it's a cop out. but sometimes the metaphors are apt. I thought Himmler was eviler than Hitle...

Jumping into the thread a bit late, so someone may have said this already. I define the nuclear family as two committed parents and one or more children. To me it doesn't matter what the parents identify as long as they are committed to each other and raising their child well. The institution of ma...
