RE: So who are acting like Nazis?

The answer to the original question is this: If one assumes that the various contributions to this and other political threads are any indication, its getting increasingly difficult to differentiate the Nazi left from the Nazi right. You guys a freaking nuts. Calm down. Go mow the lawn. Play with your dog. Sheesh.

...Nazi left? Isn't that an inherent contradiction, not unlike the phrase murderous benevolence?

It's the good ol circle theory at work. The extreme left wing wackos and the extreme right wing wackos are so far apart that they are actually almost the same.

Except, as far as I can tell (and I should know), there aren't any ideological "far Leftwing" types (sectarian Left) operating on these forums. There have been some comments made though, that are well outside of the conservative mainstream and are typically uttered by members of the extreme Right.

I certainly haven't seen any overt Marxists. This is Bush speak. If you are anti-war, your are "Far left". Using Botsnst yardstick, Jesus was a far left Nazi.

...progress in Iraq?

Actually, Nazism can be hard to classify for some people because the word "socialism" is part of their title. However, if one reads up on their theories, it turns out that their "socialism" is more like the word "society", that society being defined along the lines of Mr. Tikkets.

RE: So who are acting like Nazis?

Oh, we probably are using the term difefrently. That probably results in some of the hurt feelings around here. I don't think that the actual politics is what is meant in the various accusations--that would seem to me to be hopelessly wrong-headed. I think its the Nazi tactics that seem similar to the two groups who are busy saying nasty things to each other. In truth, you probably share more characteristics than hold exclusive. It appears so to me. Doesn't matter whether the tactics are adopted by a centrist bigot, a rightwing bigot, a libertarian bigot, a leftwing bigot, a communist bigot, a Franciscan bigot, a Hindu bigot, a Serbian bigot, a Nicaraguan bigot, a Muslim bigot,.....

Dude, you're a bigot when you dismiss "All Democrats...", or "All Union members....", or "All Republicans...". Take a careful look at yourself. Wrap yourself in the mantle of inclusivity when other people agree with you?

When you generalize behavior to a class, you are prejudiced. Sometimes prejudice is a good and useful thing. But when it is a tool or avenue for violence, denigration, derision, etc, well then pal, you are a bigot. There is a nice swastika with your name on it.

"as far as I can tell (and I should know), there aren't any ideological "far Leftwing" types (sectarian Left) operating on these forums."

------------------------------------------------

"...on November 30, 1999 I caught a good whiff of tear gas and fascism at the WTO conference in Seattle--it was "cops gone wild". The pigs rioted like they'd just been let out of the loony bin. A billy club, pepper spray and an inflated ego/testosterone poisoning are a recipe for indiscriminant violence."

------------------------------------------------

Yep, no radical leftists around here.

RE: So who are acting like Nazis?

Wow, did things get twisted...

To explain a little further and I'll try to use small words.

Talking about violence: Who do you think would have a better chance of just being able to walk away:
  • A person goes into a union plant break area (mostly Democrat) and defames Kerry, or[/*]
  • A person goes into the corporate office break area (mostly Republican) and defames Bush?[/*]

I'm not advocating violence! Geeesh! Nice try, though.

I guess you could say the Dems are more "passionate" about there cause... Check the links I listed above - they were being very passionate. I'm not grouping them all together - It just seems there are more "passionate" people in the Democratic party compared to the Republican party.
