So easy to connect the dots - Stalinist in hiding

The post I replied to disappeared. It was Willie's post about talking to Nazis.  Don't know where it went, but here is my response. First, to answer your question, no I never met a neo-Nazi, in a coffee shop or anywhere.  Lenny Bruce once said the American Nazi Party was three nuts and 20 undercover cops.

Now to your silly point: it is so easy to take the extreme position from any side and try to blast the middle. Gosh and golly, conservatives may be against illegal immigration.  Some people who don't like Hispanics are against illegal immigration.  Some people who don't like Hispanics are Nazis. Ergo, conservatives must be akin to Nazis.

Let's play your game.  Lefties believe in a greater equality in sharing the wealth.  Communists have a similar belief. Joe Stalin also espooused that belief. Joe Stalin created Gulags where millions were starved, tortured, killed, and enslaved.  Wow.  I wonder if Willie ever met a Stalinist murdering thug in a coffee shop. Or many Willie favors communist death camps.  

Is is so easy to take the extreme position and tar everyone with that position.  And it take so much thought.

This is fun. Here's a direct tie between the Mormon church, Arizona's "paper's please" law, top officials in the Arizona Republican party, and a Neo-Nazi who just went on a shooting rampage.

I wonder if this ranks as more or less ethical than putting a composite character in a book.

Don't worry Phil. We know. See no evil, hear no evil.
