Maybe he was being ironic?

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook on Tuesday after the election: "Remember the Nazi's were the extreme liberal (lefts)." (See Godwin's law)

Really? Health care reform merits comparison to genocide?

Here are some characteristics of the Nazis:
  • Xenophobic
  • Homophobic
  • Militaristic
  • Intolerant
  • Practiced unilateral foreign policy
  • Blamed economic problems on immigrants
  • Abandoned liberty for security
  • Invaded countries with unfortunate results
  • Sanctioned torture
  • Endorsed capital punishment
  • Accused opponents of being unpatriotic
Sound like a current American political party?
