I got 11/14.

"We must study this vile liberal technique of emptying garbage pails full of the vilest slanders and defamations from hundreds and hundreds of sources at once, suddenly and as if by magic, on the clean garments of honorable men, if we are fully to appreciate the entire menace represented by these scoundrels of the press."


"Hence it is that at the present time the liberal is the great agitator for the complete destruction of America. Whenever we read of attacks against America taking place in any part of the world the liberal is always the instigator."


"These scum manufacture more than three quarters of the so-called 'public opinion,'...To give an accurate description of this process and depict it in all its falsehood and improbability, one would have to write volumes."

All three incorrect answers were Adolf and I said they were Coulter.

That sort of propaganda reminds me of the "stabbed in the back" technique some of you have probably read about in the most recent Harper's issue.

12/14 You can tell by the style of language used. Now whats bugging me is that I don't remeber hitler using the term liberal end of the day he was a socialist.

As an aside I find Hitlers speaches closest to Chavez. Substitute American for Jew, World Bank for Treaty of Versailles, and Capitalist with communist and the two are identicle.

also got 12/14, but what I found striking was the consistency in ideas. Even Hitler was eloquent, something sadly lacking in reptiles like Coulter, Savage, et. al. Looking at all the quotes together though you see that what Coulter says is really not all that different from the vitriol - flowery vitriol if you will - of Hitler...

8/14 - I was tricked into thinking hitler wouldn't talk of america and that anne coulter wouldn't know what a bourgoisi was.

Good note about hitler and Chavez being similar, I'm going to watch for that more often.

They aren't similar... Ditto was saying they speak in similar style (which I doubt), but they definantely aren't similar.

Really read some of hitlers earlier speaches about how foriegn money control german enterprises and currency (near identicle to Chavez). Also Hitler had a couple of earlier speeches in regards to universal eductaion, health care and work programs that were very similar.

But I was actually trying to make another point. If one only quotes single lines they can make anyone sound like Hitler, hell they can make anyone sound like Gandhi.

Ours is one continued struggle against degradation sought to be inflicted upon us by the xxxx, who desire to degrade us to the level of the raw yyyy, whose occupation is hunting and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with, and then pass his life in indolence and nakedness.

"Never forget that the most sacred right on this earth is mans right to have the earth to till with his own hands, the most sacred sacrifice the blood that a man sheds for this earth...."

“I hereby accuse qqqq of being the biggest menace to our planet.”

One can make anyone sound like anyone by selecting quotes that are similar in nature.

I think most people realize that comparing Hitler to Chavez was meant to be distasteful. One is viewed as the ultimate vilian by the majority on this board, one is viewed as a hero by many on this board. Thus we like to compare Bush and the american right to the Nazi's and Hitler, we like to compare Israel and Sharon to the Nazi's and Hitler but it strikes us as uncomfortable to discuss someone like Chavez in relation to Hitler.

So it was just meant as a distasteful remark. Got it.

It makes who uncomfortable? It seems like an absurd comparison. By your own words, it is likely we could construe remarks by Mother Theresa as being consistent with those made by Hitler.

Oh come on ~atp~ speaking negative of Chavez on tribe is worthy of 3 Hail Chomsky and 5 glory be to fidels I just don't have the time for that kind of penance.

However your final point was what I was trying to get at. Finding 14 lines by any two people that make them sound similar is more a matter of waiting long enough. But comparing someone to Hitler is on the level of a grade 6 kids understanding of satire and history.

People don't like the comparison not because it is true or false but because they appreciate the individual. In this case comparing Coulter to Hitler we all get a chuckle. Compare Hitlers purchasing of weapons to defend itself from being attacked by the evil empire to Chavez buying shitloads of weapons to defend itself from being attacked by the evil empire and it needs to be supported and defended.

Well, there is definitely an authoritarian streak in Chavez, probably due to his history in the military. Through that we could probably find a few things to compare him to Hitler. Still, Chavez comes from a different tradition, rooted in a different sociological and hsitorical context from hitler. Hitler's fascism - I would argue - has more overlap with someone like Coulter, ideologically speaking, than he does with Chavez. There is also a call to violence one can glean from both Coulter and Hitler, that is not as prevalent in the speeches of someone like Chavez. I agree that one could maybe construe some of his words in that way, especially relating to self-defense. But I don't think its quite as blatant and aggressive as we see in Coulter's vitriol and Hitler's speeches.

And I don't think Chavez is a hero - but I must profess I like his spunk..:)

My mistake, I should have said I'm going to watch thier speaking style.

By the same token, I'm wary of how Chavez uses the US as "THE" evil. Many leaders (hitler included) use finger pointing as a way to rally the troups.

Since we are discussing similarities, I spent today in the closing cerimonies of the UN - Habitat's world urban forum and some of the elements reminded me of being in church. Other elements made me think of the mega churches of the US. I think I might just get skitish seeing legions of people sitting in the dark aplauding a speaker behind a podium.
