Okay, I lied. One last post and then I'm on vacation.
This is simply a house rule that I'm imposing. I am decreeing the Dilettante Codicil to Godwin's Law, to wit:
Use of the name Hitler or references to Nazis, unless specifically addressing the Third Reich or the career of George Lincoln Rockwell and his acolytes, is out of bounds. Those engaging in such invective (a) automatically lose whatever argument they are in, and (b) are subject to whatever mockery their opponents choose to deliver and/or are required to spend quality time with Jonah Goldberg.
Calling your opponents "Hitler Youth" or similar is not only intellectually lazy, it's just a crappy thing to do. I don't want to see it here. I will not censor anyone, but I really want to see that sort of thing cease around here. 'Kay?
Back on Saturday!
