    I like the fact that someone claiming that all Republicans are racist, is in fact, generalizing themselves, which is the root of prejudice.

    get over it people!
    the republicans and fox news have been comparing people to nazis for a hell of a lot longer than anyone else. if you cant take it dont dish it out.

    I`m pretty sure people have been comparing others to nazis since the 30s regardless of political affiliation. I don`t think KO was around then to begin this trend.
    The social perspective of the Republican party has changed since in the last 140 years, so I don`t really think it matters what side did what back in the day. If it did we`d still be voting for Feds and Anti-Feds.
    This is an example of hyperbole, I`m assuming that we all took English in middle school and know how to recognize hyperbole. It is comparing our right-wing party with the infamous German far-right party. I highly doubt that anyone seeing this believes that the Republican party is nearly as extreme as the Nazi party. People really need to learn to take a joke, being called a Nazi has lost all of its meaning. Now it just means somebody with an opposing viewpoint.

    Why does one side call the other names? To feel better about their own decisions? Maybe. For either side, I think if they are confident in their positions and beliefs, the name calling isn`t needed.

    Except for humor, and if this was the attempt. I didn`t find it original or humorous. IMHO

    Actually, you are wrong. The swastika is a perverted version of an ancient symbol for peace. If you visit an east asian country, and look on a map for a temple, it is symbolized with a horizontal, clockwise swastika--exactly like in this picture.

    I think the top picture actually shows what liberals want. If you continued to the next frame, the bottom lines would be gone. Exactly like how the liberals want to tax the rich to redistribute the wealth. Well, if you tax the rich out of their money, then they won`t be rich anymore, and the whole system is screwed and foundation-less.

    "Well, if you tax the rich out of their money, then they won`t be rich anymore, and the whole system is screwed and foundation-less."

    In the 1950s the top tax rates for highest earners in the USA ran up to 90% of their income. The country did not collapse. In fact it did rather well. And the rich people still managed to get richer.

    "Both the National Socialism (Nazi) and Communism are forms of total government which puts both of them solidly on the left."

    Absolutely, and the Nazi`s weren`t some sort of "modified" socialists either. They were as Marxist as the Bolsheviks. The only difference was that Hitler was more pragmatic, and made concessions to the capitalists in Germany because he knew complete nationalization would disrupt the German economy too much and he wouldn`t be able to fund his military campaigns.

    To those referring to the NSP as a left wing party... Well frankly they weren`t because if you were paying attention in history class the first people they persecuted were socialists and the communists within Germany. I could go even more in depth but I hardly agree with this at all. I would have expected this to be more of the piece just not making it because republicans refuse to compromise at all.

    "Keith Olberman did it first."

    Nope, Rush Limbaugh beat him by a couple of years.

    Olbermann first made the reference in relation to Ken Starr, special prosecutor in the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, but I can`t find another reference until well after 2006. Limbaugh was doing it from radio and T.V. well before then (Fox News didn`t rebrand itself as a right slanted news organization until after 2000, if memory serves).

    @raeyo: "To those referring to the NSP as a left wing party... Well frankly they weren`t because if you were paying attention in history class the first people they persecuted were socialists and the communists within Germany."

    They did persecute some socialists and communists, but not because the Nazi`s were right wing. It was because they were the wrong kind of socialists. Communists were considered bad because they supported an international movement, where the Nazi`s were nationalists. Other socialists were either too far left or not left enough. Nazi`s were definitely leftist as they believed that the State was more important than the individual; central planning was the goal.

    To the people who are trying to put Nazi in context of left and right, well, don`t. It`s a little more complicated than that.

    The peace time Nazi party was socialist and had qualities on the left, many wanted nationalization, and Hitler worked to bring in gun control laws.

    The wartime Nazi regime was authoritarian facist, and believed in pushing forth "traditional values" like the volk, giving excellent fodder that it was far right.

    So it really kind or runs in both directions. It`s more important to recognize when someone`s using it gratuitously (and both Fox and Olberman does more than its fair share of both, though Fox obviously makes more references simply because there are more commentators and screen time), and to call them out on it.

    By the way, folks like Coyote King, THIS is what democrats do better than republicans. Sure dems have name callers too, but there are far fewer voices of opposition from within the group when somethin

    @Buck176/KPres The form of government does not determine political affiliation. There have been right-wing dictatorships, Iran for example, and left-wing dictatorships. Fascism is a far-right policy, communism is a far-left policy, they are not the same, in fact, if you recall from your history, the theories behind them are about as different as can be. Fascists were anti-Marxists. Fascism and Communism are mutually exclusive ideologies, please know what you are talking about before saying anything.

    Before I get called out, Fascism is control by the state, Communism is control by the people. Of course, the USSR was a poor example of a true Communist country. If you know your Marx, you would know that the state has to pass power to the people to be a true Communist society. This could be done in one of two ways, either a 100% democratic society or 100% anarchy. The USSR was perpetually in the revolution phase and never managed to get to this phase. The goal of the Fascist society was to keep the power in the hands of the government, with the belief that the average person was too stupid to be able to run things. These beliefs are very different. And don`t look to the USSR as an example of a Communist society. It wasn`t.

    If you want to see modern fascists, look to Canada at the woman who just had her house taken away because she said the Muslim food her servant cooked smelled badly to her. That`s fascism and that is liberalism.

    Stop confusing nazis with right-wing.

    Political scholars consider fascism to be on the far right. Fascists oppose liberalism and marxism.
    Fascists believe in corporatism. They believe that the state should be run like a corporation.
    Sound familiar? That`s right, Republicans.

    So many I-A-Bers failed history class.

    Here`s a novel concept, there`s no such thing as "right-wing" and "left-wing". There are ideologies with differing stances on a series of issues. Neither the American Republicans or Democrats have a consistent worldview. If we want to invoke Godwin`s Law, then the Democrats have more similarities with the National Socialist Workers` party than the Republicans. However none of those similarities are what made the Nazis bad.

    Crakrjak: "Let me just take a wild guess, madest approved this post didn`t he ?"

    No, he didn`t, Fancylad did. Crakr, as much as you would like to believe that Madest`s personal liberal leanings prejudice the kind of content he approves as an IAB Moderator, Madest is a big boy and quite capable of putting on different hats when he`s acting as Mod vs regular commenter.

    The IAB Mods are a very (VERY) carefully selected group of IAB users who have the "right stuff" to approve links which relieve boredom. Nothing more, nothing less. Some of those bash the left, some bash the right, hell, we bash everybody. It`s what we do, as long as it relieves boredom.

    Accusing individual Mods of approving site content to further some personal agenda, political or otherwise, is a pretty serious accusation to make. I would gently suggest that you take care around making such accusations.

I don`t anyone is going say "Hey.. they`re wishing good luck on the Jews". I don`t think there are many people out there that will discern that difference. I think it just poor taste .. regardless of any political party. Peace!

    Nazis were extreme rightists. How is this even an issue? Fascists believe in state-control while Commie-bastards believe in mass-control. These are opposites, Nazis were on the right, why are we trying to argue this? There is no legitimate argument that Nazis weren`t on the right, while there is no legitimate argument Commies weren`t on the left. It`s not really a big deal. There have been bad dudes on both sides, just accept it. No side is perfect.

    davymid: I know that madest approved the other post, similar to this one. As I remember he remarked about it as well.

    It`s well known that he`s so far left that he doesn`t like the leadership of either party.

    The average content of IAB is liberal, and we conservatives know this and tolerate it. When a conservative leaning link does get approved, The teens and twenty-somethings immediately pounce with knee-jerk regularity.

    I just find calling any party `Nazis` is beyond the pale (Other than actual anti-semites or white supremacists).

    Besides, That shape isn`t even possible in a normal game of tetris.

    Hitler wasn`t actually a straight veggie, but he did have a lot of vegetarian sympathies. He ate meat, wish he didn`t so I could argue with vegetarians/vegans better, but he was just against torturing animals, I understand that the whole Final Solution kinda goes against this, but it`s Hitler, we can`t expect a sane explanation for anything he did.

    LowDigital: You have your terms all wrong. Fascists do not oppose socialism, They embrace it.
    Fascists want the state to dictate the means of production, That`s the opposite of free enterprise.
    Fascists want to control the media, The democrats have most of the news outlets already under their command and control.

    The so called `Political Scholars` that equate fascism with the right are perpetrating and perpetuating an academic falsehood for political gain.

    I don`t think Republicans can actually bend the laws of Tetris to create that shape and on top of that I don`t think the captions make sense. Shouldn`t it read "The Republican party that Republicans believe in" and "The Republican party as seen by Democrats"? I mean you would have to be really out of touch to think that EVERYONE believed the republican party made sense (like normal Tetris). Just reading the comments on this post will tell you that a large number of people believe exactly the opposite. This kind of seems like a lack of effort from the artist.

    Never said that reps were socialists, but Nazis were/are def right wing. Fascism is actually pretty minimalistic governmentally. One dude/party in charge is a lot less complicated than most bureaucracies. It`s a very simplistic governmental system. Fascists are definitely right-wing while Commies are def left. They are polar opposites. It`s the square/rectangle debate, Fascists are/were conservative, but not all conservatives are Fascists.

    Oh and CrakrJak, the form of government doesn`t equal political ideology. There have been left and right-wing dictatorships and left and right-wing democracies. I can be a conservative or liberal and think that most people are smart or I can be a conservative or liberal and think that most people are dumb. Essentially this is where the difference is, conservatives generally believe that the average person doesn`t have the ability to dictate what needs to be done while liberals generally believe that most people can handle this responsibility. Every system of government can be used to handle each of these possible beliefs. Please STFU if you don`t know your shtit.

    kingpong: Fascism is not `simplistic` by any means, They take control over most everything and establish bureaucracies to run things.

    ..conservatives generally believe that the average person doesn`t have the ability to dictate what needs to be done while liberals generally believe that most people can handle this responsibility.

    Wrong again, Liberals believe in `cradle to grave` socialism is needed to take care of the populace, because they don`t know what is best for themselves. (Of course these Liberal `Elitists` naturally exempt themselves from those restrictions)

    Conservatives on the other hand are the ones that believe people can handle their own lives and don`t need or want the government telling them what to do.

    I`d like to know who`s been stuffing your head full of these liberal falsehoods, Broaden your own political reading, Try Ayn Rand, Milton Friedman, Michael Medved, and Mark Levin.

    kingpong, I`ve never read such muddled gobbledegook in my life. You don`t appear to know anything about either Communism or Fascism. It would take pages for me to get you sorted out, but suffice it to say, Socialism is an economic system, whereas Fascism is a broader cultural philosophy. Hitler`s only argument with Communists was that, unlike Marx, he didn`t think all of life and culture was reducible to economic considerations. However, when it did come to economics, he was absolutely Socialist (and therefore, left-wing). Thus the name "National Socialism". If he was right-wing, he would have called it "National Capitalism" or something similar.

    Both Fascism and Socialism are collectivist philosophies, which is what makes them left-wing. The Right, by contrast, is individualist.

    "Faith-based initiatives, PATRIOT act, DEA, Iraq War, Dept of Homeland Security."

    None of that comes close to the impact on my life as the fact that the government took over 40% of my income last year (and that doesn`t count the money it took through higher prices thanks to corporate taxes), 75% of which went toward redistribution.

    You give my that money back, and you can tape every phone call I ever make.

    Thank you Cajun, conservative forms of government are generally more restrictive socially than liberal forms of government, while liberal forms of government are generally more restrictive economically. If you`ll recall all of those things that got approved by liberals were done by a vote. I`d say that the people spoke their opinions and decided on their own that was what they want. I`m also well aware that the Nazi party was a socialist party, however because of their non-economic policies they are almost universally considered to be right-wing. I should have said that liberals generally believe that people need to be regulated economically while Conservatives believe people need to be regulated socially, but it was Saturday night, you can`t expect perfection. Liberals want socialism, not because people don`t know what`s best, but because people could use help getting what they need. And I have read Rand, Levin, and Friedman, haven`t read Medved though, I`ll look into it.

    CrakrJak says - Fascists do not oppose socialism, They embrace it.

    Are you just making stuff up? I didn`t write a word about Socialism. In said that they were opposed to MARXISM which they were, and fiercly. In every Fascist nation Marxism was the political party that they were most at war with. Read your history. One of the many reasons Hilter hated the Jews is that he believed that they were trying to make Germany into a Marxist state.
    And Fascists were Corporatists.
    Look, I`m a progressive, but I have many friends who are conservatives and I have great respect for not only their beliefs but the freedom that our country affords us to have different beliefs. It`s a good and healthy thing.
    I don`t, in any way associate their beliefs with Fascism.

    But the truth is is that Fascists are a movement on the EXTREME right just like Marxists are a movement on the EXTREME left.

    On the contrary that and the Controlled Substance Act is doing nothing short of fueling the chaos in Mexico right now. If it were legal Americans would grow marijuana in the states and that would mean less revenue for the cartels because wouldn`t have to turn the black market to obtain it.

    First of all that`s ad hominem. I don`t buy marijuana never have.

    Secondly, since it is federal law we could`ve tasked the FBI to create there own branch to deal with matter, not a new government agency.

    Thirdly, I`d very much prefer that a pothead buy his marijuana from an average pot-growing American. Who in turn could use that money to put himself through college, feed his family, or even expand his non-cartel related franchise.

    Your argument fails.

    This debate is a testament to the success of the corporate propaganda that is cable news- ALL cable news. You people talk like both parties aren`t being funded by the EXACT same groups of people. Policy conflicts (like the ones over healthcare, immigration, and gay marriage) are used, quite successfully, to keep supporters of one party scared enough that they`ll continue to vote against the other.

    Secret? No, it`s out in the open. BILLIONS are spent by corporations to influence elections. Corporate lobbyists outnumber representatives in Washinton. Then factor in all of the astroturf organizations funded by the corporate sector working to influence public opinion.

    As for Fox News, CNN, MSNBC et all, who do you think runs those networks? It`s not a secret conspiracy, it`s the way things are.

    As for the corporate tax rate, it`s full of loopholes, and among those running US corporations, who cares, since their income tax is about the LOWEST for their tax bracket in the world.

    And that`s not to say the government will do EVERYTHING they are asked to do by corporate lobbyists- they still have to get votes, and money will only take them so far (though it does take them pretty far.) But you can`t seriously deny that corporations are not getting an immense return on their political investments.

    I will if you join me in condemning Rupert Murdoch`s billionaire influence through groups like Fox News, Wall Street Journal, Factiva, Harper Collins etc.

    @CrakrJak-
    Actually, I will. I`m no fan of Soros, or the supposedly "progressive" PACs he funds. I`ll do so whether or not you condemn Rupert Murdoch`s empire as Cajun requested- but you`d be a hypocrite not to.

    Moveon, media matters, Fox News, etc. all help fuel the divisive politics that allow the Republicans and Democrats to maintain their monopoly without actually representing the interests of the majority of people in this country.

    sbeelz: Murdoch is in the news business to make money, Not to masquerade as an impartial news source. (Everyone knows he owns them)

    Soros does it to purely for influence peddling and foists his radical politics through his groups (He hides behind his operations and attempts to fool people into believing they are impartial)

    Also, Divisive politics are nothing new. Attempting to hide behind what appear on their face to be `grass roots` or `impartial` internet based organizations however is new.

    I suspect you didn`t watch my clip. In short George Soros is no more guilty of owning a media empire then Rupert Murdoch is. Rupert Murdoch is just as guilty of pushing his own conservative agenda as much as Soros` is. I`ve seen enough of Fox News to know it is NOT impartial.

    "Murdoch is in the news business to make money, Not to masquerade as an impartial news source."

    CrackrJak- Yeah, `cause Fox News isn`t a Right Wing propaganda machine masquerading as "fair and balanced." If you really think that Fox News is a legitimate news source, then there`s not much point in discussing this further.

    And no, divisive politics is nothing new, but never has it been more clear in this country that neither of the two parties controlling the government have the best interests of the average person in mind. Siding with either the Democrats or the Republicans gives support to a government that does not work for you.

    @Seriously zombunny (et al.), how is this true? It totally trivializes the actual suffering of those who were victimized by the Third Reich to wantonly use "Nazi" as an epithet against people with whom you disagree politically. Both Republicans and Democrats do it, and I have to admit that Democrats are far more guilty of doing so.

    Of the most Naziesque policies of the Bush Administration- the use of torture, surveillance of private citizens (especially Muslims), and the suspension of civil liberties in the name of fighting the "war on terror," what have the Democrats done to reverse these policies, other than to pay lip service to critics?

    Even at its most repressive, the Government has not (lately) tried to exterminate or imprison an entire people, and though it IS trying to rule the world, it`s been doing that under both parties equally pretty much since before all of us were born.

    "Fox doesn`t claim to be totally impartial. Media matters on the other hand DOES claim to be impartial and therein lay the deceit."

    Keep bringing the fail, Crakr. It`s fun for the rest of us. Fox News` slogan clearly IS a claim at impartiality. Or do they mean "fair and balanced" ironically? Media Matters DOES NOT claim to be impartial. First of all, they aren`t a news organization. Second, they clearly claim to have a progressive bias. From their own website:

    "Media Matters for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media."

    Expectations: Republicans will make everything all right, just like it used to be.
    Fact: It used to be really f`d up, but that is how the Republican party would try to make things.
