    Referring me to to look at a DP thread is not proof. There is nothing to compare. America today and the rich here and the french revolution are nothing, NOTHING alike. Where do you come up with this ****?

    I'd love to see the quote where I said that.

    You didn't have to overtly say it word for word...The road you went down with your argument says it all.

    I think the major problem of this article is the statement "he compared criticism of America's rich to the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany in the 1930s ".

    Even if there is some resentment to the rich it is nothing, nothing at all like what the Jews went through with Nazi Germany. It is this pitiful "oh woe is me, I feel like a Jew in Germany in the 1930's" that is pathetic.

    Perhaps people should stop feeling sorry for themselves and educate themselves about the plight of others.

    Nothing close to what the Germany Nazi military was able to do.

    Not a ****ing genocide, that's for sure.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
