    Did you read the whole piece by Perkins, or not?

    Before that day, Nazi progressives were stirring up hatred for the Jews like the Occupiers are with the 1%'ers. the similarities are real.

    Many of you all, not you specifically but not not you specifically but I have to be passive aggressive to avoid infractions, are complete morons for comparing Nazi Germany to the Occupy Movement. You know when Occupy wanted some bankers out of town they camped out front of their offices, when the Nazis wanted some Jews out of town they organized a mob and burned their business down and drove them out through the streets.

    There are no similarities, people who think they are god damn sick human beings.

    I think your side is way over sensitive and it's crying wolf.

    There is no cause for concern. In this country, all groups are constantly being demonized and grumbled about. There is no imminent threat for those groups either.

    Not really...in order to make the comparison you have to remove all context and then any political discourse turns into a potential Holocaust.

    Again, the article was speaking of the time before the mob actions of burning and killing. Kristallnacht was after this initial period. If Occupy is allowed to fester, like the hatred in Germany did, it could end of having similar results.

    Who's talking Holocaust? This is well before that. The Holocaust is after Kristallnacht.

    Yes, I like to mock the absurd, it's true.
    Nice try....Let me remind you Ditto, that your postings are still available to see even a couple of hours later....You opened your very first post in this thread with...

    "Oh, the poor, poor billionaires!"

    Now, I know I am no where near the smartest guy in the world, hell, I'm not even the smartest person in my house, but can you show me where you are talking about a specific person in that opening?

    Ehhh....it's not "well before". Depending on your definition and time frames it's either well into the Holocaust or at the beginning. It's not by chance the author of the piece chose something that happened during Nazi Germany.

    Really you really believe that if Occupy is allowed to "fester" we could see results similar to Nazi Germany treatment of the Jews? Like mass murder or something like that? I think you're right we should use our law enforcement to break up the Occupy movement now, and while we are at it lets throw that pesky 1st amendment out as well since it causes folks so much trouble.
