Bad comparison. Nazi Germany was far more organized and industrious than modern Alabama.

A more apt comparison would be the anti-immigrant sentiment prevalent during the mid 1800's in the north eastern states.

Indeed. It's not like Alabama's government is rounding up immigrants and placing them in concentration camps, only to beat, starve and kill them. As someone born in the great state of Nazi Germ....errrr, Alabama....I am appalled that they haven't started rounding up immigrants and placing them in concentration camps, only to beat, starve, and kill them.

This stereotype of Alabamians as backwood rubes is completely unfair.  I know plenty of intelligent people from Alabama who no longer live in Alabama.

Who can blame a professor to trying to jazz things up with modern references when everyone knows that all the Alabama immigration law are patterned after something much more ancient and venerable.

Wow, that article is practically comedy. I mean, the GOP couldn't humiliate themselves better if they had been deliberately trying.

As for the thread article, the professor's conclusions are flawed and exaggerated, but the Commission Presidents response shows a tactless disdain for the freedom of expression.

Medal of Honor Citation -- BOLDEN, PAUL L.

Rank and organization: Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army, Company 1, 120th Infantry, 30th Infantry Division. Place and date: Petit-Coo, Belgium, 23 December 1944. Entered service at: Madison, Ala. Birth: Hobbes Island, Ala.. G.O. No.: 73, 30 August 1945-.

Citation:
He voluntarily attacked a formidable enemy strong point in Petit-Coo, Belgium, on 23 December, 1944, when his company was pinned down by extremely heavy automatic and small-arms fire coming from a house 200 yards to the front. Mortar and tank artillery shells pounded the unit, when S/Sgt. Bolden and a comrade, on their own initiative, moved forward into a hail of bullets to eliminate the ever-increasing fire from the German position. Crawling ahead to close with what they knew was a powerfully armed, vastly superior force, the pair reached the house and took up assault positions, S/Sgt. Bolden under a window, his comrade across the street where he could deliver covering fire. In rapid succession, S/Sgt. Bolden hurled a fragmentation grenade and a white phosphorous grenade into the building; and then, fully realizing that he faced tremendous odds, rushed to the door, threw it open and fired into 35 SS troopers who were trying to reorganize themselves after the havoc wrought by the grenades. Twenty Germans died under fire of his submachinegun before he was struck in the shoulder, chest, and stomach by part of a burst which killed his comrade across the street. He withdrew from the house, waiting for the surviving Germans to come out and surrender. When none appeared in the doorway, he summoned his ebbing strength, overcame the extreme pain he suffered and boldly walked back into the house, firing as he went. He had killed the remaining 15 enemy soldiers when his ammunition ran out. S/Sgt. Bolden's heroic advance against great odds, his fearless assault, and his magnificent display of courage in reentering the building where he had been severely wounded cleared the path for his company and insured the success of its mission.

Medal of Honor Citation -- BOLTON, CECIL H.

Rank and organization: First Lieutenant, U.S. Army, Company E, 413th Infantry, 104th Infantry Division. Place and date: Mark River, Holland, 2 November 1944. Entered service at: Huntsville, Ala. Birth: Crawfordsville, Fla. G.O. No.: 74, 1 September 1945.

Citation:
As leader of the weapons platoon of Company E, 413th Infantry, on the night of 2 November 1944, he fought gallantly in a pitched battle which followed the crossing of the Mark River in Holland. When 2 machineguns pinned down his company, he tried to eliminate, with mortar fire, their grazing fire which was inflicting serious casualties and preventing the company's advance from an area rocked by artillery shelling. In the moonlight it was impossible for him to locate accurately the enemy's camouflaged positions; but he continued to direct fire until wounded severely in the legs and rendered unconscious by a German shell. When he recovered consciousness he instructed his unit and then crawled to the forward rifle platoon positions. Taking a two-man bazooka team on his voluntary mission, he advanced chest deep in chilling water along a canal toward 1 enemy machinegun. While the bazooka team covered him, he approached alone to within 15 yards of the hostile emplacement in a house. He charged the remaining distance and killed the 2 gunners with hand grenades. Returning to his men he led them through intense fire over open ground to assault the second German machinegun. An enemy sniper who tried to block the way was dispatched, and the trio pressed on. When discovered by the machinegun crew and subjected to direct fire, 1st Lt. Bolton killed 1 of the 3 gunners with carbine fire, and his 2 comrades shot the others. Continuing to disregard his wounds, he led the bazooka team toward an 88-mm. artillery piece which was having telling effect on the American ranks, and approached once more through icy canal water until he could dimly make out the gun's silhouette. Under his fire direction, the two soldiers knocked out the enemy weapon with rockets. On the way back to his own lines he was again wounded. To prevent his men being longer subjected to deadly fire, he refused aid and ordered them back to safety, painfully crawling after them until he reached his lines, where he collapsed. 1st Lt. Bolton's heroic assaults in the face of vicious fire, his inspiring leadership, and continued aggressiveness even through suffering from serious wounds, contributed in large measure to overcoming strong enemy resistance and made it possible for his battalion to reach its objective.

Medal of Honor Citation -- LAWLEY, WILLIAM R., JR.
(Air Mission)
Rank and organization: First Lieutenant, U.S. Army Air Corps, 364th Bomber Squadron, 305th Bomber Group. Place and date: Over Europe, 20 February 1944. Entered service at: Birmingham, Ala. Born: 23 August 1920, Leeds, Ala. G.O. No.: 64, 8 August 1944.

Citation:
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action above and beyond the call of duty, 20 February 1944, while serving as pilot of a B-17 aircraft on a heavy bombardment mission over enemy-occupied continental Europe. Coming off the target he was attacked by approximately 20 enemy fighters, shot out of formation, and his plane severely crippled. Eight crewmembers were wounded, the copilot was killed by a 20-mm. shell. One engine was on fire, the controls shot away, and 1st Lt. Lawley seriously and painfully wounded about the face. Forcing the copilot's body off the controls, he brought the plane out of a steep dive, flying with his left hand only. Blood covered the instruments and windshield and visibility was impossible. With a full bomb load the plane was difficult to maneuver and bombs could not be released because the racks were frozen. After the order to bail out had been given, 1 of the waist gunners informed the pilot that 2 crewmembers were so severely wounded that it would be impossible for them to bail out. With the fire in the engine spreading, the danger of an explosion was imminent. Because of the helpless condition of his wounded crewmembers 1st Lt. Lawley elected to remain with the ship and bring them to safety if it was humanly possible, giving the other crewmembers the option of bailing out. Enemy fighters again attacked but by using masterful evasive action he managed to lose them. One engine again caught on fire and was extinguished by skillful flying. 1st Lt. Lawley remained at his post, refusing first aid until he collapsed from sheer exhaustion caused by loss of blood, shock, and the energy he had expended in keeping control of his plane. He was revived by the bombardier and again took over the controls. Coming over the English coast 1 engine ran out of gasoline and had to be feathered. Another engine started to burn and continued to do so until a successful crash landing was made on a small fighter base. Through his heroism and exceptional flying skill, 1st Lt. Lawley rendered outstanding distinguished and valorous service to our Nation.

Here's my chance!

My chance to compare Nazi Germany favourably to something without offending anybody* the way idiots are prone to doing when they try to make a point.

Yes, I'm saying it:  Nazi Germany was a lot nicer than Alabama in some ways. They had silly little Volkswagons, great new Autobahns, and the only people who were worried about being sent there to work themselves to death were Jews, homosexuals, and gypsies. Maybe a few Communists. And as a complete Loon and Flake, Hitler was very much in favour of vegetarianism, homeopathy, natural herbal medicine, and an oldfashioned Pagan Christmas, complete with Swastika ornaments on the greeen boughs of the traditional Fuhrer tree.

Be honest. If you had to sit down to a dinner of German food and beer with either Adolph Hitler or Strom Thurmond, who would it be? I know Strom Thurmond isn't from Alabama. I'm just asking, which reactionary Southerner would it be?

*Anybody who matters.

Alabama is as far from Nazi Germany as you can possibly get. Alabama is full of the kind of Americans that had the balls to go over to Germany and fight the Nazis in the first place.


If you want a good comparison to Nazi Germany, then New York and California are two that come to mind. Hitler was all about socialism and removing freedom, as well as giving a small ruling socialist party a terrifying iron fisted control over the masses.

So yeah, New York with its "you cant drink a soda pop, own a gun, knife, sharp pencil, stick, sneeze wrong, chew gum, breathe, you are under arrest for existing" mentality is much closer to Nazi Germany.

Senator Dianne Feinstein is definitely a Nazi as well. A drooling and retarded Nazi, granted.

\Also, wake me up when Alabama executes 6 million illegal aliens...


It looks like some people seem to think that someone woke up in Nazi Germany one day and said "Hey everybody, lets kill a few million people. GO!" instead of slowly building up to it with campaigns like "They're taking our jerbs! They don't belong here!" and taking away some right here and there and slowly making everyday life more difficult for "others" over several years.
Looks like someone in Alabama skipped that step and went directly to legislating and that doesn't work out as well.

Old-school Nazis probably would have started with handing out free signs like "Alabamians! Don't buy here, this shop employs illegal immigrants! True Americans only support businesses who support America!" to Real Americans (tm), Teabaggers and so on. Then organized them so that there's always someone sitting on their scooter with a flag and one of those signs in front of offending stores. And doing stuff like taking pictures and public naming and shaming of "traitors" who shop there or who use untaxed illegal labor to mow the lawn, do the cleaning, wallpaper the house etc.

My point is that the reaction of a bunch of Alabama Teatards is, thusfar, insufficient to warrant a comparison to Nazi Germany.

If you are going to start comparing things to Nazi Germany just because you think that SOMEDAY those things might evolve into something else resembling Nazi Germany, then I suppose comparing Obama to Hitler is valid, as he is the leader of a nation, and one never knows, he might someday go insane and attempt to seize power in a totalitarian way.

Comparing a situation to Nazi Germany implies a comparison to what the Nazi regime became, not what they started out as, in the beginning. If one desires to make a comparison to the beginnings of Nazi Germany, then that needs to be explicit, not implied.

Number one, it was the royal "we".

Number two, my imaginary friends are all staunch christian libertarians who think you're awesome, especially Creepy Steve, who also thinks you're dreamy.

Number three, comparing American politicians with the Nazis is pretty lame. I wish you could travel back in time to 1944 Germany, or better yet Auchewitz, so you could see the huge difference. We're pretty sure you would be happy to live in California after that field trip. Remember, banning biggie soft drinks is not the same as the Holocaust.

Whatever your rationale for your dislike of certain politicians or their beliefs, your comparison is not apt. It is hysterical and silly.

Number four, people will have different opinions than you. That's okay. Your intolerance for differing opinions makes you sound like a farking Nazi or something.

Number eleven, many of the facts you've cited in support of your opinion aren't facts, they're fears. There is a big difference.

In conclusion, labelling anyone with whom you disagree a Nazi is intellectually lazy and cheap. Call them totalitarian if you feel it's apt. Say they have dictatorial aspirations and that they're trying to rob you of your freedoms. Then your readers won't think you're ignorant and intellectually lazy.

MagicMissile: rattchett: MagicMissile: Alabama is as far from Nazi Germany as you can possibly get. Alabama is full of the kind of Americans that had the balls to go over to Germany and fight the Nazis in the first place.


If you want a good comparison to Nazi Germany, then New York and California are two that come to mind. Hitler was all about socialism and removing freedom, as well as giving a small ruling socialist party a terrifying iron fisted control over the masses.

So yeah, New York with its "you cant drink a soda pop, own a gun, knife, sharp pencil, stick, sneeze wrong, chew gum, breathe, you are under arrest for existing" mentality is much closer to Nazi Germany.

Senator Dianne Feinstein is definitely a Nazi as well. A drooling and retarded Nazi, granted.

Look, we get that you don't like liberals and you think their ideas are repugnant. But until liberals start rounding people up, putting them in camps, and shooting and gassing them, comparing them to Nazis makes you an idiot of the sort Hitler would have gassed.

Whose we.... the voices in your head? Your imaginary friends? I didn't mention liberal once in my post, this shows that you know what I said is correct when applied to liberals, because you made a subconscious connection all on your own.

But anyway... what is more foolish.

Calling people who stand up for American rights Nazis? ( this makes absolutely no sense and whoever suggests this should be beaten with a bamboo cane in public like they do in Singapore )

Or calling people who are removing freedom, expanding government, expanding police, giving police special powers, attempting to disarm the United States, signing bills that authorize Martial law and indefinite detention, declaration of the right to assassinate American citizens without due process, tearing down Christianity and declaring it the worst form of evil on the planet, and spitting hatred, violent threats and bile at any who dare to confront them..... Nazis?


You didn't specifically mention "liberals", you simply claimed two of the most liberal states in the U.S. are totalitarian dictatorships. Also, learn your history. Having "socialist" in the name doesn't make it so. Sort of like how any group with "family" in the name is more likely to be a homophobic hate group than genuinely interested in families. The Nazis were socialist in the same way that limestone is an F-15. They gained power because the established government at the time was afraid of communists and tried to use Hitler as a rallying point for the center and right, which didn't work out so well. Showing off your blatant ignorance of history in an attempt to smear people you don't like or to incite an atmosphere of fear is idiotic and childish.

You also seem to be confusing reality with what spews forth from Fox "News" every day. I don't have the patience to walk you through how your assertions about "things the left does that make them like Nazis" are not based in reality, so I'll just let you know you're wrong and suggest diversifying your news intake a little. Go yell about freedom and 'Murrica at your neighbors instead of spreading your lunacy here.

*not sure if serious*

Or maybe:

"You know who else was just standing up for the rights of his compatriots?"

But now enough about the US overreaction to 9/11...

/ you would have to replace Christians with Muslims
// well, and the Nazis were more about relaxing gun control laws for law-abiding citizens than about disarming them; but I guess not renewing the assault rifle ban hardly counts as disarmament
/// love the couple of things that the wording of right to assassinate American citizens without due process implies

Ego edo infantia cattus: WOW. Did anyone catch the two parts of the law that the courts struck down?

They wanted transporting and housing an illegal immigrant to be a crime.

Sounds strangely familiar...


How can you possibly draw a parallel to this? Wow yourself.

Btw - the operative word is ILLEGAL...last I heard aiding and abedding was just as much against the law as anything else.

This Noriega guy is a tool...I wonder if subby actually RTFA.

Fine, we'll keep on with the "Northeastern Communist" / "Left wing California surfer kook" bullshiat.

And MagicMissle is correct, the left is far more totalitarian than the right is. By leaps and bounds. Just remember, it was the eugenics laws passed by the Progressives in California that the Nazis took inspiration from.* Oh those wonderful Progressives, it took 100 years for the stain of that ideology to not be an automatic disqualifier for someone's political career. And hopefully after this little dabble with statism we're going through now, it'll go away for another 100 years.

Because banning gays, women, anyone who is not a white male Christian from doing anything is so much better. Don't forget having control over someone's body and bedroom. Also, if you share anything with anyone you are a Socialist Communist traitor.


Hey Zepplin, you aren't generalistic enough...try harder next time.

People like this don't realize they're sabotaging their own cause. A particular immigration law may be wrong, but comparing it to people being marched to the gas chambers and bulldozed into mass graves is insulting in every way imaginable, and it ultimately turns people off to your message.

Many are. I'm of German descent and live in Michigan, but my family left HRE almost 150 years before Hitler was even born.
