    Union leader calls New Jersey gov ‘Adolf Christie,’ compares pension battle to WWIII



    Welcome to the new civility.

    At a Thursday rally in New Jersey protesting Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s pension deal that would cut pensions and benefits to public workers, a union leader charged Christie with acting like a Nazi. And not any ordinary Nazi, but Adolf Hitler himself.

    “Good afternoon brothers and sisters. Welcome to Nazi Germany,” Communications Workers of America District 1 Vice President Christopher Shelton is seen raving in a video posted on YouTube.

    You better run right out there and tell them about Godwin's law so they can immediately capitulate into submission.

    I live in New Jersey. I can honestly say a lot of people here, myself included, are fed up with these union heads.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Godwin's Law states that as an online argument grows longer and more heated, it becomes increasingly likely that somebody will bring up Adolf Hitler or the Nazis. When such an event occurs, the person guilty of invoking Godwin's Law has effectively forfieted the argument.
    I believe this to be true, as I believe that the one who claims Racism is usually the Racist. It's a sorry tactic that follows, The Rules for Radicals which suggests that you accuse the other guy of what you are doing and stick to it because if you say it often enough eventually it will be believed.

    Actually Hitler came up with that one first I think.

    Do show some examples of Conservatives calling Obama Nazi, or Hitler.

    A cursory google search shows "Obama Nazi Youth" at the top.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Both sides do it.

    To both sides: stop it.

    Selective memory, much?


    There should be like a law where if anybody makes a Nazi reference and the person/group they're talking about is not committing genocide, they become immediately open season for thrown fruit and/or pies.
