A little bit of Harry Potter politics courtesy of both simmysim and my father (who luckily found this to be very funny and not at all weird).

What the question comes down to: is a man who denies the Holocaust occured and refuses to believe in the reality of nearly 11 million lives lost better or worse than Hitler? *shrug*

If you're offended, here's a quarter. Find yourself a better party. *waits to see how many people take her off of their friends list.

Your wings are BROKEN and tattered. You are
an angelic spirit who has fallen from grace for
one reason or another - possibly, you made one
tragic mistake that cost you everything. Or
maybe you were blamed for a crime you didn't
commit. In any case, you are faithless and
joyless. You find no happiness, love, or
acceptance in your love or in yourself. Most
days are a burden and you wonder when the
hurting will end. Sweet, beautiful and
sorrowful, you paint a tragic and touching
picture. You are the one that few understand.
Those that do know you are likely to love you
deeply and wish that they could do something to
ease your pain. You are constantly living in
memories of better times and a better world.
You are hard on yourself and self-critical or
self-loathing. Feeling rejected and unloved,
you are sensitive, caring, deep, and despite
your tainted nature, your soul is
breathtakingly beautiful.

Of course! :D You rock too, naturally... I'm so glad I have you on my friends list, otherwise I'd go batty from having to see all the "Bush bad! Republicans evil! Democrats good! Go Dean!" shit which I daren't complain too much about. They may have good intentions, but--at the risk of cliche--the road to Hell is paved with 'em. And evil is such a strong and often misused word.

And, of course, being a conservative isn't just about oppressing minority groups. :P *lurves*

Is a man who denies the Holocaust occured... better or worse than Hitler?

Is someone who denies the Holocaust occured better or worse than the person who actually instigated the killing? Hmm, even though I'm, like, Jewish-and-sensitive-about-the-whole-genocide-thing, I'd have to say they're still "better" than Hitler. I may not agree with them (and, in fact, would argue with them at great length), but it still doesn't make them Hitler.

Just my two zorkmids. Interesting question (and cute icon, btw)!

I think the question really is: is the man who isn't Hitler and doesn't want another Hitler better or worse than Hitler?

lol...I'm so great.

Why am I on your friends list? I was just wondering...you know, if you hate me so much.

lol...I don't hate people for political affiliation, that's just silly. I also don't think hurting people is right...so if one hurts people for affiliation that isn't right either.

Well, anyway, I would really like to hear WHY you're a conservative, but other than that....

You're welcome to take me off your buddy list or not reply! I am sure you won't reply anyway! ^_^

*gibbers* What the...? Okay, whoa, I admit... it's a stupid question. Not because the answer is obvious, but because it doesn't have anything to do with the actual point I was trying for. Unfortunately, I tend to toss out whatever surfaces in my grey matter first, so oftentimes it doesn't make any damn sense.

The question is, of course, debatable. Hitler was a man with firm, nutso, prejudiced ideas... generally, so are people who write books about the Holocaust never happening. The difference is that Hitler caught on and made it into power, whereas these other people are generally regarded by most of polite civilization as nutsos. Hitler is a bad man, it's true, but he tends to take all of the blame for something that took thousands of people working together toward one common, horrible goal. That seems wrong to me.

It doesn't, however, really have much to do with the differences between Democrats, Republicans, liberals and conservatives. My bad.

Let's just say that I get sick of Republicans and conservatives being under severe punishment... though I do realize it fluctuates throughout the country, "Republican" tends to be a dirty word. Something okay to really mock. To call "evil." And evil is the sort of word generally associated with the likes of Hitler. But, no, Republicans are not evil, any more than Democrats are stupid. Of course, if I say Democrats are stupid... I would get chastised for being non-progressive or not caring about people or being oppressive. But I can say Republicans are evil and people back me up. It's like... damn.

I'm conservative, but not a Republican. I'm a Libertarian, and one of the only reasons I tend to side with Republicans is that they favor smaller government and less government intervention (although, fuck, it's changed over the last few years). I hate having to go with the lesser of two evils, but sometimes it's all people understand.

And I don't hate you. I don't hate for affiliation either, but I do disagree, and I hate that disagreement. I also hate being called evil or associated with mass murderers, even fictional ones. I also tend to go over the top in nearly everything I say and do, just as I tend to not reply to comments that don't have easy or fluffy or straightforward answers. If it requires a lot of effort and thought from me, I often ignore it until it seems to go away. I'm not proud. It's pretty despicable. But it doesn't mean that I hate you or don't appreciate the thought, even if I might disagree. The fault lies with me, not you.

*scratches head* Is that... um... okay? I mean, I'm not trying to alienate you or anything...
Jasper Asphodel Ladonthe_anomaly on February 1st, 2004 01:23 pm (UTC)
Yeah...are you implying I'm stupid because I would vote Democrat (I am more liberal than that, though, but I see Democrat as the lesser of two evils compared to Republican)? I mean...I don't know, half of the reason that some people are critical of Republicans is that they are in charge, and of the Senate and House of Representatives, no less! So you can see where people like me would feel alienated, especially by you being critical of people like me and kinda implying that we're stupid...'cause, I mean, look at the government right now! We are pretty alienated, and I think everyone ought to agree that different ideas ought to be expressed and that it is key that no one gets too powerful or there will be another Hitler...you know?

Anyway...uh...I hope I'm making sense and good points and all of that. You'll probably notice in my journal that I'm not overly critical of Republicans or conservatives or anything, even if I don't see why they feel that way. I honestly can't understand why people are that way...it seems counterproductive to me. What matters to me is social issues, like gay marriage being legal and healthcare and all of the reasons I am a liberal is for humanitarian reasons...I simply CAN'T see how that is evil or stupid...just like how I CAN see how the Republican agenda often steps on the minorities and unloved (and we know how it is to be unloved).

Anyway, I can be quite critical, but it's all in the name of democracy. I will look a lot at the flaws of any country because that is what needs to be changed...and if I don't try to change them, who will, you know?

I'm pleased to see you didn't make a stupid reply or be too critical or hateful or anything. That's a sign of maturity. I have a government teacher who is a Republican and TOTALLY disagrees with me, but he's still nice and gives an A+ paper what it deserves. So, it's a good mark of maturity.

lol at "*gibbers*", by the way! ^_^
