Oh come now, the atrocities of the Muslim occupation of Europe were no more severe than the atrocities the Christians committed on the Crusades
The distinction is that-to say Hitler was some sort of misunderstood hero is NOT the same thing as to discuss the state of religious sects. There are
at least two main branches of Islam and sects within-each Imam is basically an independent religious leader. To say Islam or Christianity is good, or
to discuss patriotism is not anywhere near the same ballpark as saying a man who took power, betrayed all his initial supporters then went on to
slaughter millions from the Jews to Gypsies to Gays and Political Adversaries.. Probably the person who accidentally spilled tea on his rug-That isnt
apples to apples, not even apples to elephants.
The topic of Hitler being some sort of hero or messiah is as comedic as it is sinister. It is one thing to talk about specific events within history
or even to talk about the differences in pre-leader Hitler and third-reich Hitler. I am sure Pre leader Hitler was prob not that bad of a guy, but he
most definitely changed when he got power.
Make no mistake though, the man was a megalomaniacal death machine who's sole purpose seemed to have become-to kill everyone who did not support him.
To say he was a hero is just imbecilic denial of reality and reflects poorly on the community at large.
--edit to add:
When something is demonstrably untrue-to remove it or place restrictions on it is protecting content-it is called GOOD EDITORIAL ACTIVITY. Censorship
is a beast that is squashing facts and valid opinions. To demand something is true simply because you want to believe it, and be told its bunk-is not
censorship, its a reality check.
