This was a worthy thread.
The article is the worst sort of vile spew, but I agree with you that people should read it to clearly see and understand the depth of evil that resides on the other side.
www.realclearpolitics.com is running it as a featured piece with a special request to readers to reply to Greeley's editor...something I took the time to do.
I can't find it on RCP...where is it?
We really don't need to read that kind of trash on a day like today. We know what how trashy people on the left are. I really don't need to see the millionth example.
I found it under 'do me a favor'.
"Can this model be useful to understand how contemporary America is engaged in a criminally unjust war that has turned much of the world against it, a war in which torture and murder have become routine?"
Anyone making such baseless accusations and comparing the present administration to the Nazis is not worthwhile.
Greeley is a Catholic priest, Professor of Sociology, and raving lunatic leftist.
And a writer of soft porn.
Worthy of what. Comparisons to the US to NAZI Germany isn't worthy of anything. There is not one ounce of intellectual honesty in such a looney comparison. I guess you could wipe yourself with the paper it was printed on.
A - the junior Senator of New York State?
The Nazi namecalling is a bankrupt argument. Unfortunately, there are those who vote democrat who are very susceptible to emotionally charged rhetoric.
"Worthy of what."
The piece is a direct campaign prop for Kerry if you read it all the way through. I agree that Greeley is among the most whacked out of the leftists. I also believe, however, that it is critical that when these cranks expose themselves like this that the world gets to see it.
Joe average American is not an idiot and deserves to see what sort of support John Kerry is getting...The truth will set them free.
Lemme guess.... Democrats, John F'n Kerry. What do I win?
Well, AFAIK, Hitler never was in favor of :
- abortion (he stated was the patriotic duty of every German woman was to have babies for Germany)
- nationalization (he was well-funded by German industrialists and not even weapon manufacturers were nationalized, hence Porsche made the Panther tanks, Messerschmidt the planes, etc)
- wealthy men (part of which gave him money)
- promoting people because of their look and not their merits (there were as many cases of promotion for yes-men as there were for competent leaders. In the military, think about Rommel or von Manstein, for example)
OK, you have over a dozen a comments and you have not stated what was so 'worthy' about the article. I really have no use for people who use Hitler to seriously discuss the United States, whether it be Clinton or Bush as President. The arguement is just bankrupt rhetoric at its worst.
There was nothing worthy about the read and you should be ashamed for posting this crap on this Friday of Pres Reagan's Memorial Service.
Obviously a Conservative Republican would not have posted this kind of nonsense!
Given his interest in eugenics, I bet Hitler would happily have supported abortion for imperfect/disabled babies.
