THE HOLOCAUST!!!!!!1!
    #11202198 - 10/07/09 07:41 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

On both sides of the aisle, and on both sides of the political spectrum, the reflexive attack of the masses seems to have become an automatic comparison of your ideological rival to Hitler and/or the Holocaust.  Obviously, this is not new.  However, it definitely does seem to me to have escalated over the course of the last 10 years or so to a point of almost complete absurdity.

What impact does this issue and other similar problems have on the state of discussion and debate today?  Is this symptomatic of a lack of civility in politics today, or is the real problem ignorance?

thats always been the case.. hence the need for a godwins' law...however..bu$hco made godwin obsolete when they started doing things like snatching ppl off the streets and holding them under torture in secret gulags.. wiretapping everyones' phone without a court order.. invading neutral countries to steal mineral rights and killing millions of civilians in the process.. etc...little wonder that from that point on..you could make comparisons to the nazis without being summarily dismissed as a lunatic...

I like to think a little bit from column A and a little bit from column B. 

I just think it is a lack of reasoning powers and a desire to hyperbolise everything political.:happyhitler:

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.

There is no need for Godwin's Law; it is a joke.  Simply put, "The longer an internet debate continues, the more likely somebody will make a comparison to Nazi's or to Hitler."

For the most part, I think it is an easy 'out' for those arguing against Zionism and Israel.
