The next person that makes an assinine Hitler reference should be forced to wear a faux Hitler moustache penned with blue ink on his or her upper lip, of the kind I improvidently drew on my sister's china dolls whilst merely a 6 year old lad. Little did I know then that, 35+ years hence, Hitler images and references would continue to be bandied about in such a childish manner.

Hi PDS :) Excellent idea! I'd say that they should have to sit through Night and Fog as well, but I'm concerned that some people wouldn't be moved by that film. The mustaches would piss them off though - ruin their photo-ops.

What kills me is that there are valid reasons to invoke the politics of Hitler today. I'm opposed to this administration on nearly every level so my bias is clear - but I really do see similarities between the way Team BushCo operates and the way the political machine of the Third Reich was run. The propaganda, the demonizing of a minority, the constant dividing and demogoguing (sp?) along cultural lines, the endless war, the disenfranchisement, clamping down on dissent, the consolidation of power ... It's too bad that conversation can't be had.

Now, put your marker away - I have to pick my kid up at school later.

Well, if you think about it, letting the economy be based and controlled by large corporations is really an idea from Fascism. United States just don't have the degree of militarism in daily life, though I'm sure some people up there is trying...

eRobin and yian: I believe you have both earned yourselves a pair of blue ink moustaches.

Noooo!!

Zinn


  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

Bono


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton


  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

Marx


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
