The use of the word: NAZI

My fellow
humans
earthlings
citizens of the milkway...

(thats the end of the cute part)

I believe in the past here, I have addressed the use of the word NAZI should not be used liberally.

Let me RE-emphasize this issue...

(end of the pre-warning.. I'm about to kick someones ass.. part)


Calling someone a NAZI is a personal attack if they are not indeed truly a NAZI (and if you are a NAZI - you better get the Fucking hell off of my board), which violates the terms of use of this board if you are calling another member by that name.


The NAZIS destroyed over 12 million innocent PEOPLE.

The NAZIS destroyed some of my family.

I don't care WHO called who a NAZI, BUT whoever uses that word better use it cautiously and correctly, that word carries A LOT of weight.

(end my dislike for the word NAZI, and the NAZIS)


I dont care about liberals,
I dont care about consveratives,
I think they're all a bunch of jackasses just trying to shove their fucking view down other peoples throats.

Ego => Greed => War


Live by example
or
SIT THE FUCK DOWN
I'm sick of hearing people preach.


(end.. Elvis speaks his mind in FREE YOUR MIND)

I really couldn't agree more with you.

Might I also add that I dislike certain members' usage of the word "Communist" in reference to liberals. Stalin alone killed over 20 million of his own people, not to mention a reign of terror that lasted three decades, almost culminating in his own Jewish Holocaust that he would have taken place in 1953, had he not died suddenly just before it was to be carried out. Let us also not forget the 1950s McCarthy-era "Red Scare," whereas many perfectly decent liberals ended up ruined in what was little more than petty ideological vengeance from conservatives to the liberals.

I'm certainly not coming before here totally innocent, for I likely used the word "Nazi" in reference to conservatives after being angered enough at the "Communist" association I'm constantly being hammered with. (And, yes, people...there are major differences between "Communists" and "Socialists.")

All in all, I, for one, think that "freeing your mind" can also involve being respectful, something that I certainly try and be here, for better or for worse; and, really, name calling of any kind really has no place in the arena of professional debate.

My two cents.

And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

I always thought the use of that word was a bit harsh,
along w/the other 'N' word.

What about if you are referring to people who have indeed killed or harmed millions, but are actually not Nazis...They just act like them and are every bit as evil as them? We need to find harsh enough words to use for people like that. I mean, calling them "gosh darn crooked and evil humans" just doesnt cut it.
I have rels who were killed in WW2 also...But I'm not offended by Seinfeld . *shrugs*

Look...look what you've done to me...You've made me poor and infamous, and I thank you...

My name is MISS MACPHISTO...I'm tired and i want to go HOME...

I work as a computer lab assistant at the college I attend. Due to thefts and such, we have implemented a system that requires all users to check in at the main desk with a photo ID and be signed in. If people sit down without signing in, I always go over and inform them of the policy. If they sit at the wrong station, I move them. Since lots of my other co-workers don't care and just let the policy slide, I've become known as "The Computer Lab Nazi"...I try laugh it off, but I don't like that name.

alright then that's cleared. i understand your sentiments Elvis. i mean no disrespect, just that the comment took me by surprise. that word has been used to the point of desensitization and i do believe that that is wrong. unfortunately this happens with a lot of hurtful things. i think comedy is a way for some people to deal with trauma.

my intentions were not disrespectful.
of course the holocaust was horrifying to find out that humans are capable of such loathsome conduct.

but sometimes i think people are too uptight about life and need levity
