Riddle me this.....
« on: April 12, 2017, 02:57:12 PM »
Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, appropriately dug a bit of a hole, when he proclaimed that Hitler never gased his citizens.  He tried to correct, but still didn't make it as clear as he meant.  Everyone knew what he meant, but in today's hyperage of reflex reporting of anything negative-Trump, it came off as callous to what the Holocaust was all about out

Ok, I get that...it was a bad attempt at comparing Assad to Hitler......and yet, where's the outrage at all the efforts being made to paint Trump as Hitler??....the GOP as the Nazi party??....The border wall to the Berlin wall??....Supporters of Trump as Facsists/White Supremacists??

Can anyone say 'Double Standard'??

I don't see it as bizarre, Kimba, and as a major trekkie, I don't recall in any way that Star Trek was trying to spin the Nazi party in some positive way

No, my point is yet another demonstration of the overt double standard that exists in the MSM and the lunatic left, where Hitleresque comparisons made by Republicans, even when the point trying to be made is understood, is still condemned, but any and all Trump = Hitler references, or GOP = Nazi references, or Conservatives = Fascist references are apparently perfectly acceptable

i agree it`s a double standard and putting the nazi tag on the gop will simply encourage people to react badly to the democratic party

a character in star trek thought nazi had positive traits and tried to give the idea another chance

  It was pointed out as refutation , that it is a fact that the concentration camps used poisonous gas as an execution method, probably for a great number of innocent persons.

   So Mr. Spicer should indeed apologize for trying to say that Mr. Assad is worse than Mr. Hitler.

    When the plain truth is that he is about the same.

Oh, I remember the episode quite well.  As the show demonstrated however, that one Federation officer was woefully in error

I had to see it a few times to really understand how shocking it was. It got  worst later when I found out scotty was veteran of that war. The 70's far from that time
