It’s not Godwin’s unless it’s an *inappropriate* analogy


At Andrew Bolt’s, but bears re-blogging:

I’m sorry, but the fascist analogy must now be drawn

Bolt comments: [all links added by me for the benefit of those not familiar with these themes]

I never dreamed I’d live in a country in which Jewish businesses were boycotted and blockaded.

The shame. The utter shame.

But then I’d never dreamed, either, that I’d be taken to court for expressing my opinion. Or that a news organisation would be denied a government contact for being political unsympathetic. Or that news outlets would be banned by government ministers for asking basic questions. Or that academics could protest against free speech.

What the hell is happening here?

UPDATE: Flashback to Melbourne 2009 (via Nilk) … it’s not like they’re being subtle, people:  “Nazis Needed”

    I’m not going to bother getting chocolate sent overseas, but I do send out pizzas at various times throughout the year.

      Yes, I remember accidentally flaming someone a few years back – a blue on blue encounter – so as a token of my apology, sent an order for an IDF platoon. It was very well organised, and even got an email back from one of the blokes.
      Time to get the Child Bride some GOOD chocolate.
