Are Freepers totally nuts? Or simply totally stupid?
They're at it again, using out-of-context quotes by German Nazis, comparing them to "the liberals."

2. Well, I think the freepers ought to be used...
... as a source of amusement, but there's no real point in delving into the psycho-social basis for their ideas, unless one is doing clinical work in the subject of institutional insanity.

Pay them no mind. Contemporary liberals are not Nazis, however much the freepers wish them to be. Their hero, the president, is the closest thing we have in this country to a fascist at the moment.

Think about the concept of projection....

9. I agree, they are fun to watch self-implode
It's sort of like watching a train wreck, or more appropriately, a barrel full of monkeys. Except, not as smart.

8. I'm really tired of this freeper "let's make 'em Nazis" horseshit gambit.

The one poster over at FR who stood up against the outrageous comparison of Nazis to liberals was summarily canned for speaking the truth. His first post in the thread was:
"There's one big difference between Liberals and nazis though:
Nazis supported the systematic extermination of millions of people.
With that in mind, your comparison falls flat, and is worthless, and shameless. Enough with the nazi comparisons. Don't we hear liberals use those same rhetorical devices all too much?"
- - - - - - - -
Can't have that kind of sane thinking over there. Yeah, right, pull the plug on him, and fast, in the name of "freedom."

Freepers want to reinterpret history to suit their own insane agenda. If they can't see that the current administration is closer to National Socialism (they get so stuck on that word, "socialism," in their little black-and-white minds) than any other in our history, then they get the inept, suffocating, oppressive government that they deserve -- the problem is, we all get it, and we all suffer from it.

So, which part of our political spectrum resembles the Nazis most? Let's see -- continual warfare against a vague, undefined enemy ("the terrorists")? Pro-government propaganda spewing forth 24/7 (Faux News)? The so-called party of smaller government now BIGGER and more intrusive than ever before (Patriot Act, etc.)? The making of lists of "enemies" of the state (phony "traitors" lists, like the one that named the Berg father and possibly initiated events that got his son killed)? The spotlight put on incredible animal brutality practiced by certain echelons of our military (murder by interrogation)?

Can't the right wing see what the hell they're doing? No? Well, then, Arbeit Macht Frei, motherfuckers.

11. I saw that.
The guy who said this was wrong, that Nazis were exterminating millions of people, quickly was overwhelmed by the "Hitlery" people saying that Hillary wants to kill all conservatives. :crazy:

15. They have a great imagination
How else can you explain their complete and utter devotion to such a regime? Obviously they see something we don't. Something bad, of course--nothing they've done could ever be considered good, except conversion.
