This is WEIRD!!!!


Is Rumsfeld a Nazi clone? Or is he related to this guy? Rumsfeld is of German descent, that would explain it.

4. What, it's facial resemblance now?
It's a strange resemblance, but I think we should stick to facts and policies.

8. OK
But there were a lot of Nazis; just because Rummy looks a bit like one of them doesn't make him a Nazi. Dig through the yearbooks, you could probably find Nazis who look a bit like you or me.

15. LOL
The only party I'd like to poop is the GOP, but I see it's a joke. Some people here get carried away on the whole "OMFG Bu$h is Hitler!" thing.

16. True! I think that just underscores how good Shrub is at evoking
NEGATIVE EMOTIONS! I just choose to think of him as a self-serving, dark souled, war-mongering fool! He has betrayed his own people! As a fraudulent leader, he will never attain the respect and loyalty he so desparately yearns for. Ever. Have a great weekend! Peace!

11. You should check out "Return of the Revolutionaries"
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 01:48 PM by Mabus
http://www.johnadams.net/index.html

from the site: Walter Semkiw, M.D. asks a startling question in this provocative book: What if key figures in the American Revolution were back with us today, reincarnated in new bodies and personalities, and just as interested in supporting social change and spiritual awakening? Semkiw says it's more than a question. It's a fact. Drawing on the cases of dozens of prominent and influential American cultural and literary figures today, Dr. Semkiw establishes their Revolutionary times identity. Continuities in facial appearance, personal interests, and even writing style are giveaways to linking a present-day figure with someone from the Revolutionary era, he says.

What's Max's story?

====

On edit: found his story. It can't be Rummy, Max knew his lines were stretched thin.

From http://www.searchspaniel.com/index.php/Maximilian_von_W...

Weichs warned about his lines being stretched too thinly, but Hitler ignored this, and Weichs fears materialized when the successful Soviet Operation Uranus, smashed the Italian, Hungarian and Romanian armies on flanks, cutting off the 6th Army inside Stalingrad.

20. "Rumsfeld is of German descent, that would explain it."
What, precisely, do you mean? This could easily be misinterpreted to read "all Germans are Nazis", so I thought a chance to clarify might stave off any future flames.

27. Comparing the bush* maladministration to NAZIs now OK!
The ban is over.
The BIG TABOO has been broken.
We can now talk about the elephant in the living room.
Direct comparisons of the bush* gang to the Nazis are now appearing in the MAINSTREAM PRESS!

The following appeared in the Section A of the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Jan.27th.




Consider the memorandum written by Alberto Gonzales -- then the president's attorney, now his nominee for attorney general. He wrote that the Geneva Convention was "obsolete" when it came to the war on terror. Gonzales reasoned that our adversaries were not parties to the convention and that the Geneva concept was ill suited to antiterrorist warfare. In 1941, General-Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel, the head of Hitler's "Wehrmacht," mustered identical arguments against recognizing the Geneva rights of Soviet soldiers fighting on the Eastern Front. Keitel even called Geneva "obsolete," a remark noted by U.S. prosecutors at Nuremberg, who cited it as an aggravating circumstance in seeking, and obtaining, the death penalty. Keitel was executed in 1946.

Keitel's remarks were made in response to a valiant memorandum prepared by German military lawyers who argued that the interests of Germany's soldiers, and the interests of morale and good order, would be served by adhering to the Geneva treaty. Secretary of State Colin Powell, echoing the opinions of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and U.S. military lawyers, sent Gonzales a letter that hit the same notes.

Rumsfeld and the White House would have us believe that there is no connection between policy documents exploring torture and evasion of the Geneva Convention and the misconduct on the ground in Guantanamo Bay, Iraq and Afghanistan -- misconduct that has produced at least 30 deaths in detention associated with "extreme" interrogation techniques. But the Nuremberg tradition contradicts such a contention.

At Nuremberg, U.S. prosecutors held German officials accountable for the consequences of their policy decisions without offering proof that these decisions were implemented with the knowledge of the policy-makers. The existence of the policies and evidence that the conduct contemplated in them occurred was taken as proof enough.

The boogey man is OUT of the bushes.
The cat is OUT of the bag.

If something looks like a duck, DUers can now say, "Hey, that looks like a duck!" without fear of sanction by
the "OMFG, What will the republicans say" police!

We can now talk about the obvious.
After all, it is now MAINSTREAM!

Kudos to the Strib!


And YES. Rumsfeld looks like a f**king NAZI.
