Godwin's Law Violation Award Nominee

Sept 19th, 2011

Following my somewhat humorous pushback against the right's freak-out over AttackWatch.com last week, posted HERE, HERE, and HERE, I received quite the inbox full of alarmist invective. This fellow, however, was far and away the most entertaining.

I still say it's just a website.

"And yes Herr Parker, Hitler’s Nuremburg rallies were Teutonic halftime shows!!!

You see there are none so blind as those who prefer not to see.

This web sight sounds and smells like Herman Göering’s, Heinrich Himmler’s, and Adolf Hitler’s Reichssicherheitshamptamt (main state security agency) the umbrella agency of both the Sicherheitsdients or SD (security service) and the Sicherheitspolizei (security police) before both morphed into the Geheimestaatspolizei, (secret state police) shortened to Gestapo in conversational German.

If my above analysis of Attack Watch proves to be to harsh, then it is at least Nixonian, so take your pick… Excuse me now, someone is banging on my front door...!!!"


Points for the multiple violations of Godwin's Law. Extra credit for the lesson in Nazi bureaucracy. Smiley sticker for the repeated use of triple exclamations.
