Bloodthirstyliberal has the most clear headed thoughts about using Hitler as a reference in any conversation.
If you have to use Hitler to make your point, you probably need to rethink your point.
(all in the wake of an odd Will Smith quote)
In a story published Saturday in the Daily Record, Smith was quoted saying: “Even Hitler didn’t wake up going, ‘let me do the most evil thing I can do today.’ I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was ‘good.’ ”
I’m with BTL. There is evil in this world. Don’t explain it, just deal with it.
People are whacked out, jumping all over the net looking for anyone who said anything bad about Will Smith. Take note – I didn’t say anything bad about Will. I love the guy. He’s one of my favorite actors and he seems like a genuinely good person.
He did NOT say that Hitler was good. And I’m not saying that he did.
I have no idea what the point was he was trying to make when he said he didn’t think Hitler woke up figuring out what bit of evil he wanted to do today, (like a Dr. Evil in a cartoon flick). It doesn’t matter. I’m saying that anytime I hear anyone bring up Hitler in reference to anything I think “oh – here we go again”.
Hitler/Bush, Hitler/Mugabi, Hitler/Saddam, Hitler whatever.
So – again the point being that if you think you need to reference Hitler, don’t bother.
