    I thought you had initially said the Jews. Odd.

    Why do you compare these American soldiers to the Nazis? And the dismembered American soldiers in your hypothetical to the Taliban/Al Qaeda?

    Our American soldiers are not Nazis, Thunder.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    When? Why?...What?

    You get confused because the Nazi's had snappy looking uniforms.

    The Nazis were left wing. Socialists.

    that's clearly because you didn't care to actually read the post you responded to.

    ...Why do you compare these American soldiers to the Nazis?...
    I made no such comparison. I simply changed the parameters a little, to show the hypocrisy going on here.

    ...Our American soldiers are not Nazis, Thunder.
    I never said they were, Wake. Try reading my post next time.

    Dick Durbin compared our soldiers at Gitmo to Nazis......it's a political template.

    Please counter or go back to the kitchen

    Both Democratic Socialism and Social Democracies have their origins firmly rooted in Nazi economic policy. If you pick at them a little, most of our modern liberals will admit their long term goal is to reform America into a "Social Democracy".


    Nazism came from the left, not the right.

    utter and pathetic lies.

    the Social Democratic Party of Germany is their oldest political party, older than Nazism and PERSECUTED by the Nazis, as were Communists, Socialists, Unionists, and other leftists.

    by your pathetic logic, Republicans are Communists, since North Korea is called the "Democratic Peoples REPUBLIC of Korea".

    oh, and Republicans are also Islamists, as Iran is actually the Islamic REPUBLIC of Iran.

    (1) I disagree. You may have edited it, or it may have just been a mistake. I'll err on the side of saying it was a mistake to keep us on topic.

    (2) Methinks you did make a comparison:

    Real life incident: American soldiers deface the Taliban/Al Qaeda
    Your hypothetical: Nazi soldiers deface [via "smiley photos"] American soldiers

    You are indeed comparing real-life American soldiers and hypothetical Nazi soldiers by keeping one mutal factor: defacement. Furthermore, you compare real-life Taliban/Al Qaeda deceased to hypothetical American deceased. I don't think it's wise to compare our American soldiers with Nazis, and I don't think it's good to compare deceased Taliban/Al Qaeda with deceased American Soldiers.

    (3) By making those connections, you create some sort of implication, as though our American soldiers and Nazis have anything of note to compare. It would be the same if I compared persecuted Jews in the Nazi era to kids bullied in America; what it boils down to is that it's a dishonest and to be frank absurd comparison.
