Von Stefan Sasse
Jon Stewart von der Daily Show in Reaktion auf einige religiöse Spinner, die einen "War on Religion" sehen wollen und Obama mit Hitler verglichen:
First of all, when the Nazis "came for people", they also left with them. It wasn't a metaphor! And as for your slippery slope, Hitler did not "start small". His delivery of "annihilation of a religion" didn't kick in with insurance reform. He tried to take over all of Germany with a machine gun in a beer hall. They saw him coming! In jail he wrote a little bestseller, saying, quote, "the personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the shape of the living Jew". By the way, doesn't sound nearly as bad in its original angry German. That's a real thought, by the way. So when you say that in the early 1930s, when Hitler made subtle and incremental changes to healthcare on the "slippery slope", he actually focused on broader changes such as in 1934, when his "little group" of half a million brown shirts shot a couple of people in the street, and also these little backroom gatherings the Nazis held every year at Nuremberg - my point is, Hitler didn't play smallball. So, lighten up. America is not Nazi Germany, and the secret police isn't coming for you.
Erstens, beeindruckendes Detailwissen, und auch noch korrekt, das Stewart da abliefert. Und zweitens hat er so Recht. Diese inflationären Nazi-Vergleiche in den USA grade nerven einfach nur.
