I quote, again, "Don't make impassioned statements about 'inflamed prejudice' and then call those that disagree with you Nazis!"
I do so because while you do not use the first person, the (perhaps only in my mind) clear implication is, you didn't agree with him, so he called you a Nazi.
Nope, after re-reading it again. That IS what it says. No, wait, you ARE correct. For me to conclude you claimed he called you a Nazi, I have to assume you and he disagree. So, I am forced to conclude from your last, that I was wrong in my assumption, in fact you completely agree with him. /sarcasm - well, not completely
You never used the 'first person?"
I'm sorry, I mistook you for someone capable of holding up your end of a reasonable adult discussion.

I am a Nazi. There, glad I got that off my chest.

Since it is obvious you continue to miss the point of my post and are only interested in making smarmy comments about how smart you are, I'll have to restate the point in small words for you. My issue was not with the argument about Peterson's guilt or innocence. My issue is with the use of 'Nazi' and 'Soviet' even as hyperbole, regardless of what the argument may be. This is a favorite tool of the liberals in any debate and I, like many others here, object to it. It is a passive/aggressive method of shutting people up. Much like "I'm sorry, I mistook you for someone capable of holding up your end of a reasonable adult discussion."
