Wow.. I could have sworn from street lawyer's previous arguments that he was a tad bit more educated than this.
Are you sure? It seems pretty difficult to come up with an argument which would support the proposition that
the Nazi Party was not a hate organisation.
Depends on how you define hate. People today still can't figure out why Hitler was anti-Semite. The biggest
and most widely accepted argument (by people that actually study history) is that he was soley after power and
used strong anti-Semite feelings of the time to gain that power. I suggest checking out all the information on
this page if you've ever wondered what the textbooks and
teachers screwed up on. You also have to remember that for a good deal of time, the Nazi party was a political
party and not a killing machine. I do not share the beliefs of any national-socialist, in case any of you folks
are quick to call people Nazis.
Now, why label them as a "hate" party and ban collectors from selling the stuff? I guess it is because
the government of France must want people to forget about what happened with the Nazi's. Either that, or they think
that the Nazi party is somehow profiting off of people selling items they own.
I think it goes without saying that the government of France is fucked up beyond all recognition. Did you know
they passed a law requiring a minimum salary? Not all that bad, but when companies started hiring less people to
do more work because of it, the government of France then passed a maximum work week law preventing citizens from
working over 40 hours a week.
Is it really just someone's "opinion" that the Nazis were bad?
The Nazi's were a political party that were lead by a man who was a criminal and had many under him that were
It certainly isn't just "opinion" that the Nazis killed six million Jews and a further six million
homosexuals, gypsies, Slavs and others.
The man in charge authorized the killings without the consent of the "party". In fact, the "party"
was basically defined as the man. The Holocaust *did* happen. I don't think I or the author of the post you are
replying to is arguing that.
So are you really trying to tell us that the systematic massacre of twelve million human beings may or may
not be a bad thing, and that all there is, is "opinion"?
He was talking about labeling organizations "hate groups" like the labeler is someone that is above
them and more intelligent. I don't think he wanted to argue opinion vs. fact.
Strangely enough, you seem to be fairly sure of the fact that censoring unpopular beliefs is bad. You don't seem
to regard that as "opinion".
Streetlawyer! You are pulling that out of your ass and you know it. You seem to abide by not letting other people
make assertions, so quit making ones of your own.
From these premises, a strict logical interpretation of your post would imply that you are more sure that
Yahoo is wrong to remove Nazi memorabilia from its Internet auctions, than that Hitler was wrong to order the massacre
of twelve million people.
Wow, way to fuck up logic. He never gauged "assuredness" in his post. You are also assuming that it
has to be one of two ways:
1. Hitler was wrong in killing 6 million Jews and so we must ban all auctions of Nazi party memoribilia.
2. Hitler was not wrong in killing 6 million Jews and so we must allow all auctions of Nazi party memoribilia.
Sorry man, there is a 3rd option:
3. Hitler was wrong in killing 6 million Jews and that has no bearing on auctioning Nazi party memoribilia.
Am I promoting hate if I'm a WWII collector?
