    If you genuinely are a US Military veteran, which I seriously doubt, then it doesn't say much for military intelligence. The fact is that rail cars, concentrations camps and Wyoming were never mentioned anywhere, and only cropped up in your own fanciful imagination..

    Nazi Germany was a nation with a long history of anti-semitism, much of it state supported

    The US is a nation where most people look up to the wealthy and their success.

    Your comparisons are facile and worthy of nothing more than ridicule. Watching you accuse others of being blind to history is like listening to a Kardashian accuse someone else of being an attention whore

    That's one of the most absurd things I've ever read. Pointing out how his claim is invalid means his claim really is valid? WTF?

    And the idea that liberals "hate success" is just asinine. Which I guess in your world means that it's true. Or something.

    J-Mac is right. No one yet knows how this will play out.
    Yes, a few fringe kooks firing off nasty emails is just like decades of ingrained German anti-Semitism.

    Oh I'm sorry I thought there was a reference to them feeling like Jews being persecuted by the Nazis. And if memory serves me right the Nazis were part of the Germany military.
    My bad I guess.

    You can doubt all you want to about my service to this country as you probably wouldn't recognize a vet anyway.

    No, they were not necessarily part of the German military, which brings your military experience further into question. There was also no mention of Wyoming, rail cars or concentration camps. The Antisemitism began decades before any of this.
    My bad I guess.
    Yeah, I guess.

    Yes, quite true....Wiki has a salient point in its summary...

    Hitler and Nazi propagandists played on the anti-Semitism and resentment present in Germany. The Jews were blamed for things such as robbing the German people of their hard work while themselves avoiding physical labour.

    Nazi propaganda - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Notice a theme there? Today's progressive is playing on the long endured campaign against corporations, and CEO's by democrats that go to great pains to paint them as 'greedy', 'not doing physical labor' etc.

    I see similarities between the long propaganda campaign of Germany to stoke antisemitic viewpoints, and that against those here against Corporations, and Banks, or wealthy people for the past 50 years.

    The US is a nation where most people look up to the wealthy and their success.
    Not in the progressive world view...While that may have been true in the past, today it is IMHO, nearly a taboo to admire attained wealth. Look how people in here react when even a defense of a CEO, or a bank leader is met with derision, and vitriol by progressive members. It is clear in black and white. Oh, and please don't be so foolish as to ask me to go back thread through thread and provide example after example that you will just dismiss. I won't do that...

    Did I insult you or something? Because I can not figure out why such a childish attack, lashing out would be in order.

    I wasn't aware that this message board was designed to seek your approval....

    No one said that, you really shouldn't fly off the handle with your straw arguments.

    And the idea that liberals "hate success" is just asinine.
    I agree, yet it is clear that they do. Or, at the very least liberals use that emotion of jealousy, and envy to stoke the very hate we are speaking of...

    Which I guess in your world means that it's true. Or something.
    In my world? No...Wrong again...I really don't know why you have to personalize everything instead of discussing it. The only thing I can think of is that you really don't have a good argument against this, so instead you go into a comfort zone of attacking those who don't think like you do on these things, and lash out in an emotional attempt to shut down debate.

    I bet this sounds familiar.
