Somehow I hope that Wisconsin's population is a little more civil than this.

We'll get plenty of chances to find out over the next 60 days.

Actually your comparison is at best juvenile at worst offensive.

Comparing the violent actions of politically motivated individuals to the state sponsored pogrom of 1938 is to greatly magnify the importance of the current event and belittle the suffering of Germany's Jews.

It is important to pay close attention to those willing to committ political violence, but comparing them to the Nazis (as the DIMS are quick to do themselves) shows either ignorance of the past or a tendency to hyperbole which is a sign of irresponsibility.

My thoughts on the subject....:

This clearly prvoes the Democrat party is indeed a criminal enterprise that is willing to do all it can even to the detrement of this country to reacquire power.

I would urge everyone to ask themselves given what's going on with all of the speeches by Zell Miller being reffered to as "hate speech" by John Edwards and the MSM if they are stupid enough to trust the Democrats with their civil rights. What's going to happen to anyone who criticizes John Kerry or his policies if he's elected President and the Democrats gain both houses of Congress. How will his administration react towards those who criticize him and/or question his policies.

Is this the America we want to live in? I know I don't want to live in it.
Regards.

Come on, there's no proof that this was a Democrat. There are dozens of anti-American organizations totally outside of the Democrat party which would like to see us at each other's throats.

This may well have been a sneaky al Qaeda operative.

We have no interest in helping them along, but I'll tell you, some extremely violent organizations would love nothing better than to convince us to lose our tempers.

Also, do not discount the possibility of wet work done by an anti-gun group. I'm not saying that it's likely, but it could happen. What better to trigger RINO support for draconian gun control measures such as the AWB renewal than to see their outposts struck by a bullet here and there?

Ladies and gentlemen, look before you leap on this.

I suspect a Heinz deep cover operation emerging. Hey those demo-commies will do anything to get in the White House. I hope they find the perp and his friends. I think the homo M.O. is just a deception, for the real culprits Democratic sponsored terrorism agents. Hunt them down ,string them up and let Satan welcome them to the real DNC Headquarters.

Comparing Democrats to Nazis (National socialist German workers party) is completely accurate. I would suggest that YOU look back through history and do a true compare and contrast.

It's fun to do that sometimes, and I even point out the similarities between their positions now and then -- especially when they're accusing us of being so. But really at a time like this it offers no improvement to the situation. It's best for us to discuss the opposing party as misguided.

Remember, enemies beyond our borders win when we abandon our commitment to the rule of law, campaign period traditions, and the electoral process.

The Dems are now shooting at Republicans.

They only way to get a Republican to vote Democrat is to kill them.

I think if there was an anti-RKBA motive behind this shot, it would have gone into a 'rat HQ, thus guaranteeing massive MSM coverage.

But I agree, we must always be careful to look for false motives and double or triple plays in such incidents.

The more desperate the gun control people are, the more intriguing their attacks will be. I believe that the end of the AWB will lead to the end of unconstitutional gun control across the land, from Kali to Mass. It'll take a couple of decades, but one after another the laws will fall. They know it.

We are not abandoning the rule of law the other side is doing so. Simply sticking to the line that the Democrats are "merely misguided" is like a busted weld under a fresh coat of paint it looks good but you don't want to bet your life on it. If push comes to shove it is better to be ready to fight & to be victorious than to be caught flat footed & get your head kicked in.

I'm serious when I say that it probably isn't a Democrat, or not a sane one, and certainly not an approved one who did this. It's either a nut or an agent provacateur. Under those likely scenarios, feisty rhetoric from us isn't going to help. It just plays into the hands of the provokers.

But I understand your sentiments and I quietly share them.

Give me a break. By making the comparison you only trivialize the crimes committed by Nazis. That type of perspective is really sick.

Since I majored in German History, and since you seem to be an expert far more learned than I, please feel free to educate me on the parallels. Let's start with the number "500". Do you know the reference?

Well, I'm just sooooo impressed with your "I'm smarter than you all" attitude, that I figured you must actually just be 'average'.

As for being in Germany, I couldn't care much less than I already do. Don't like the fact that people accurately compare the modern democratic party with the Nazi party of old? Too f-in bad - you people brought it about, and you'll just have to suck it up and live with the reminders every day.

Between acts like this and all the disruptions that occured at the RNC. I get scared to think how low the liberals go to try defeat Bush. The ammount of vile an rhetoric for their side seems to get louder an more disjointed. I really fear aside from another Terrorist attack right before the elections that a liberal screwball is going to do something really stupid and hurt a lot of people.

Hmmmmm. OK.

Lets see here. Everything I know of that time period comes directly from someone who was THERE or right next door. My grandparents are dutch (were dutch actually, they came to the us with their children after WWII and became naturalized citizens).

My grandparents WATCHED as the socialists in Germany lifted that monster hitler to power. Believe it or not he considered hitler to be the lesser monster, the real monsters were the socialists who enabled the phycopath.

After the occupation of the Netherlands my grandmother was forced to work in the homes of party members and my grandfather was placed in a prison camp. I do NOT believe the those of the Jewish faith have a monopoly on outrage at the crimes of the socialists and their hired monsters.

You cheapen the memory of all who fought and died to end that atrocity by insisting that we shouldn't point out that there is another "nazi" party on the rise in the US.

You disgust me.

"Actually your comparison is at best juvenile at worst offensive."

It's too bad that you feel that way, but you are entitled to your opinion. Whether or not my comments offend you is not my concern. My grandparents were Jews who escaped from a communist country, so I'd be the last to belittle their suffering in ANY time period.

I've witnessed the gathering culture of violence that is fostered by the left. Praise for the Palestinian movement, while the ultra left condemns the security fence built by Israel. The UN and World Court are trying to force them to tear it down. Movements of hatred begin with a few drops, such as those from a leaky faucet....but soon gain momentum like a powerful and destructive Tsunami. So these bullet holes at a Republican HQ indicate a warning of coming attractions. Perhaps not today, nor tomorrow....but one day soon.

The left's anti semitism is evident, here are some videos for you:
http://brain-terminal.com/video/rutgers-2003-10-11/index.html
http://brain-terminal.com/video/peace-love/index.html

As I have pointed out in this thread, the agenda of the Nazis is parallel with that of today's left.

Hitler was:

A Socialist.
Pro Gun Control.
Pro Abortion.
Pro Euthanasia.
Pro Animal Rights.
Anti Tobacco.
Pro Homosexual.

What you have to understand about Huntington is they kill people like its free down there. In the last month or so I've lost count of how many murders that have taken place on the streets there.

Most of it is Crack related. Heck, this week, the son of a college professor was taken hostage by a dope dealer he owed money to. The thug made the guy drive around town at gunpoint for a couple of hours while he negotiated a ransom with the sap's mother.

After the cops substituted fake money for the ransom, the incident ended in gunfire, and the poor sap/victim was almost killed.

U.S. Marshals captured a guy in Detroit recently on charges he killed a hooker in a Huntington apt that apparently did something that displeased him.

Part of that town is like Mogadishu after dark.
