Who are the real extremists? By Ed Mechmann

The governor of the state of New York has an unfortunate tendency to engage in absolutist, take-no-prisoners ­political rhetoric. Just a few years ago, he declared that anyone who opposed redefining marriage was “anti-New York and anti-American.” So it really should be no surprise when his rhetoric gets out of hand, and shows a lack of respect for those who take opposing ­positions in good faith.

DEMOCRAT Andrew Cuomo acting like like a despot..I cannot come into *his* state because I oppose his views. New York, you vote 'em in, now kneel to your Masters. So glad I moved the hell out of there.

At the core of all liberals, there is decadence and deceit. Andrew Cuomo can never be trusted.

I’m debating whether or not he’s the worst governor in America. It’s either him or Terry McS*hitcliff. Even Moonbeam isn’t this bad.

1986 real estate price explosion, AIDS discovered, proliferating, promiscuity among teens and young adults, media following suit local church oblivious, outta there

Gets worse with every glance back

No one should be surprised by this, yet its so outrageous, biblically, Italy’s closing down a bridge look like cheating in a bridge game

But democrat supporters use no God given law as their authority, and their enablers are weak in every real way.

They’ll let this go and get back to Christie. Cardinal Dolan might even be the one to reestablish that conversation, based on his siding with Obama in headlines in gun control right after the HHS mandate came through. I hope not, but, where is he on this?

I despise New York so much that I will refuse to buy a Steinway Piano until they move to Texas.

Not that I could afford a Steinway Piano, but I will boycott Steinway now, just in case I get a big fat inheritance before Cuomo is ousted.

It’s the principle of the thing.

I have long thought that those old films of Hitler's speeches ought to be dubbed in English. The German sounds harsh and scary but no one knows what he is saying. If the words of his rhetoric became as well known as the images of his wild gesticulating it would shame a lot of today's demagogues for their bold plagiarism of der fuhrer.

Its really scary what is going on..if you close your eyes and hear the way that Dems talk you would swear your back in the 30s..they say, those who forget history are deemed to repeat it..Im afraid that might actually happen here..I know it sounds crazy, to think that it could happen again, but why not, whose to stop them from doing it..why is the left so obsessed with disarming Americans, for destroying the 2nd Amendment..because like Hitler said “In order to control ones citizens, they must be disarmed”

One of my roommates was German-born, but was an American citizen.

He spoke German at home growing up.

One time he told me that if you understand German, you'll understand just what a powerful speaker Hitler was.

When I've seen subtitled speeches by Hitler (and Mussolini) I've always wondered how anyone could fall for that ridiculous rhetoric. Subtitles don't cut it.

There was a reason so many people followed Hitler.

He had a way of whipping crowds into a frenzy.

That’s why I would like to see it dubbed not sub-titled by a good voice-over actor who could match the tempo and inflection in English.

Excellent idea! I've read some translations of short segments and you are correct.

Juxtapose that with this video.

I would just like to see the Military/History/Discovery channels do it. They run a lot of WWII and Hitler stuff so they must get pretty good viewership with it. Colorizing those old films was good because it gives them more immediacy. I think dubbing some key speeches and statements would do the same. What Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo were saying is more important than how they looked or sounded. It would be an eye opener for a lot of people.

They have all taken a decidedly leftist bent, it seems to me.

I mentioned this a while ago that to get the attention of the LOV (Low Information Voter) a Conservative film maker needs to make riveting, action packed movies with all of the high drama, special effects and Technicolor glory to bring to life the Treason, corruption and wickedness of this regime.

Fast and Furios would be a good start.

They could legitimately have gun battles, explosions, torture, car chases, innocents slaughtered, just like real life.

Make it free on the Internet.

That's the secret. Subtitles and dubbing won't work, unless we get just how it sounded to German ears.

Probably would take a very skilled German actor who speaks fluent English to get the full effect.

German sounds to German ears like their native language. I think it’s the emotion, passion, tone and inflection that would make the difference and it should sound like American English to American ears for that.

"Who are the real extremists?"

Here are some examples from history:

These men if they were alive today would either be leading a march on Washington D.C. OR they would be "black-bagged" and "disappeared" in Gitmo...

hitler had no ovens in 1921 when he talked like this when promoting the Five Step National Socialist Plan. Perhaps this is a modern day 1921.

Great quote from the article

Remarks like these reflect not only a noxious political climate in our nation, but a deep-seated spiritual malady that St. Augustine called the libido dominandi, the lust to dominate and rule.

He nailed the lib/fascists hundreds of years ago.

There's a reason Curtis Sliwa calls him "Andrew Evil eyes Cuomo"...Because his eyes always look like they are bugging out of his head just like Nancy Pelosi and anyone else who is a regular imbiber of illegal substances. This isn't the first time he's gone on a crazed illogical rant.

Re Yosemitest's map at post # 20:

It's not quite as simple as indicated on the map.

There are a few upstate counties, most of which contain decadent modest-sized cities, which are definitely 'Rat.

On the other hand, Richmond County (Staten Island), within NYC and which you colored blue on your map, leans Republican and has a GOP congressman and some GOP state legislators. Problem is, with only 5% of NYC's population, it has minimal representation in NYC government - which is why there was a strong movement for secession from NYC about 20 years ago.

Also, the NYC suburban counties (Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, and Rockland), which you colored blue, are actually purple. Some have Republican county executives, congressmen, and/or state legislators.

You know your history, Sarah. Hitler's talk about Jews (and other "enemies of the German people") actually started in the early 1920s, even before he wrote down his ugly thoughts in "Mein Kampf" (while imprisoned for stirring up riots). Most people back then who were aware of him scoffed at his "rhetorical excesses." Germany, they thought, was too refined and culturally advanced for anything so sinister as Hitler was talking about to become a reality. Little did they know what was to unfold.

The Archdiocese strikes back-—sort of.

Questions for Roman Catholic FReepers re Cuomo:

(1) What would Cuomo have to do to be excommunicated from the Church and how close is he now with his rhetorical outburst?

(2) Which Church official(s) would have the authority to excommunicate him if deemed appropriate to do so?

While I cannot speak for either of his bishops, you need to remember that Cuomo has self-excommunicated himself from the church. Excommunication of public officials is rarely used any more. Check out the list of all who have been excommunicated from the Catholic Church since the 1st century. The majority are religious.

Don't 'cha hate it when you scan something too fast and assume you read and comprehended it, but really you assumed WRONG.
That map has NOTHING to do with DEMOCRAT/REPUBLICAN and is NOT an election map.
Go read it AGAIN, and this time CLICK ON IT, and read the BILL actions.

And finally, don't "ASSUME" ~ because you know what 'they' say about "ASS-U-ME"

That reminds me. In 1986 when the late Mayor Koch ran against Mario Cuomo, aka Il Sfaccim in the Dem primary for gov his hired goons drove all over NYC with bullhorns shouting "vote for Cuomo not the homo!" You raised a fine boy there, Mario. The shiite doesn't fall far from the bat.

Just what exactly is an “extreme” conservative anyway? One who is against murdering babies? Oh how extreme of me. One who is for using a gun to blow the brains out of someone who wants to kill his family? Oh how extreme, it’s better to be a victim isn’t it. One that is against Marxism and is for capitalism? Oh how extreme. One who is for treating blacks as equals rather than mentally challenged morons who need constant government support? Oh how extreme of me.
