I've read your posts on this thread, and you seem to have taken the rather extreme position that all Nazi's were perpetrators of the Holocaust, and
ONLY the Holocaust. In fact, your whole argument seems to ignore the "facts" that the Nazi's did a whole lot of bad things...the Holocaust was only
one of these things. You are deflecting, and using the Holocaust as a defense because you know it is a horrible and despicable act.
If you don't think the Nazi mentality could exist, independent of the Holocaust, you would be dead WRONG!
You see, the Holocaust, as horrible as it was, is really just a manifestation of a system gone completely amok. A system and it's leaders gone
completely mad. And, why was this? Because they were allowed to exist long enough, unchecked, that they felt they could just wantonly commit
genocide without repercussions. Because they silenced all who would disagree such that there was a vacuum of checks and balances. Just like Nazi's
Your association that Nazi's absolutely have to commit genocide such as the Holocaust is WEAK and SHALLOW. In fact, it's disingenuous even to
Holocaust survivors and their descendants. Your statement...
Get some holocaust survivors to agree with you and I may change my tune though...
...is just further proof of this. (And we'll over look the fact you didn't capitalize Holocaust). The truth is, there aren't many Holocaust
survivors left on this planet to agree or disagree, just like there are no American slaves left to agree or disagree with a debate about slavery.
Your attempt to remove the word Nazi from discussion and debate by branding it with the scarlet letter of the Holocaust, and thus making it a taboo
word in an attempt to disassociate the actions of the left is shallow and opaque.
No, the actions of the perpetrator in the OP are EXACTLY like those of a "Nazi"...so much so, that it's not a stretch to imagine this sort of an
individual would willingly participate in another future Holocaust like event...if it were the political right who were the ones being "cleansed" from
Bottom line...there were a lot more Nazi's than there were Holocaust perpetrators, so just QUIT with the absolute association that ALL Nazi's are
Holocaust perpetrating monsters! Get over it!
