  1. …..They’ll put free hookers and cocaine on our health plan……..

    😆 Love it. 😆

  2. “they will accept it as long as we say it’s for the children” “until the bankruptcy trustee comes”

  3. “The ignorant rubes will believe what we tell them! They’re just taxpayers!”

    Internet Hitler channels all our Democrat betters in DC.

  4. Let me see if I get this …. using this comedic comparison, the democrats are Nazis and the Tom Barrett is Hitler or very least leader of Wisconsin democrats are Hitler. Ahhh — yeah. Such comparison, known as Reductio ad Hitlerum as well as Godwin’s Law (Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes some comparison to Hitler and the Nazis. — Wikipedia).

    Such comparisons are Socratic in nature, for it could be said:

    Hitler was a Nazi.
    Hitler hated smoking.
    Hating smoking is Nazi ideology.

    Bottom line — democracy worked in Wisconsin. And this article and video isn’t funny. As Catholics, we can do so much better.

  5. I thought it was funny.

    The more truth in a farce, the more funny the farce.

    Besides, tolerant people spent most of eight years calling Dubya Hitler . . .

  6. I thought it was funny. And the syllogism posted by Defender was neither Socratic nor valid; and had nothing to do with the video. Finally, the chronic citation of Godwin’s Law is far more tiresome than than the reference to Hitler in on-line discussions. Usually, those references are for the purpose of demonstrating the invalidity of an asserted principle, and instead of the principle’s proponent acknowledging that the principle’s defectiveness he lamely cites Godwin’s Law.

  7. Yes. Truth is uplifting and a little laugh is medicine for the ills caused by current realities.
    Lies aren’t and they hurt, too.

  8. “And this article and video isn’t funny. As Catholics, we can do so much better.”

    My heart always goes out to the humor impaired, the largest minority among us.

    To quote myself on the subject of using Hitler as a buffoonish figure:

    “Some people think it is in bad taste to use Nazis in a humorous fashion. I respectfully disagree. Laughing at the Nazis is one of the best ways to remember them on the ash heap of history. Too often they are given almost demonic status as avatars of evil which is precisely the wrong way to remember them. I agree with the late Werner Klemperer, a Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany who served in the US Army during WW2. Decades after the war he would play the bumbling Colonel Klink on the television show Hogan’s Heroes. Klemperer said that he would go to his grave happy knowing that he had helped make the Nazis look ridiculous.”

  9. Defendor Hitler was also a vegetarian, encouraged promiscuity, and thought of everything as a matter of power (as do feminists).
