Earlier I was perusing the NYT and ran across an article (will link later) on Godwin’s Rule: the longer a Usenet thread, the closer the probability of one being compared to Hitler gets to 1. There was a video in the article of a woman explaining how Obama and Hitler are, to her, terrifyingly similar, and trying to kill certain portions of their respective citizenry. . .
I absolutely CANNOT wrap my head around what some people believe in this country. In the world. I cannot fathom who begins the absurd rumors about this shit, and to what end. I can’t understand the things Bush et al. foisted upon thus country, evoking little more than cries of “idiot!” Now an intelligent man tries to change an obviously and severely broken system, and he is called an elitist, a facist, a NAZI. I am terrified that some nutjob is going to assassinate our president, honestly thinking they are saving the world from evil.
What is there to gain from all this bullshit??
