So by your logic, FDR, Truman, Wilson, and Clinton should have been tried for war crimes?

And Toadie, Bush is not a Nazi because he is not anti-Jewish!
Re: Wanted for War Crimes

Yes, most of us would advocate putting FDR, Truman, Wilson and Clinton on trial for war crimes--and a good many other presidents as well.
It's OK to be a fascist, so long as you hate Muslims and not Jews...

"And Toadie, Bush is not a Nazi because he is not anti-Jewish! "

If the Nazis appeared today, rather than during the time of Hitler and they rounded up Europe's Muslims, interned them and then threw them in ovens, would they still be Nazis? Would it matter one bit whether they preferred to kill Jews or preferred to kill Muslims? I don't think there is any difference.

If Americans had kidnapped Australian Aborigonies, brought them to the US and enslaved them, would there be an important difference between that and doing the same to Africans?

"Never again" should mean "never again" to anyone.

Bush is a fucking Nazi.
Anticipated counter-argument
04 Dec 2004
The anticipated counter-argument is that Bush is not rounding up Muslims and killing them. I have a question to ask. Was Hitler still Hitler before he began killing Jews? Look at the following timeline:

Third Reich

1933 - Hitler becomes chancellor. Creates one party state. Systematic persecution of Germany's Jews escalates.

1935 - Germany begins rearmament. Nuremberg Laws deprive German Jews of citizenship.

1936 - Berlin Olympics.

1938 - Annexation of Austria and Sudetenland.

Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) sees orchestrated attacks on Jews and their property as well as synagogues.

1939-1945 - Invasion of Poland triggers World War II.

Millions of people of all ages, mostly Jews but also large numbers of Gypsies, Slavs and other races, the disabled and homosexuals, die in Holocaust as Nazis implement extermination policy in death camps of eastern Europe.

1945 - German army defeated. Allies divide Germany into occupation zones.

1945-1946 - Nuremberg war crimes trials.

It took five years between Hitler's first full grasp on power and his Kristalnacht. Jews were not initially rounded up. Hitler turned up the heat of oppression and racism slowly. This incrementalism is exactly what Bush is doing.

Bush, in a sense, is ahead of Hitler. Within the first four years of his presidency he has already mudered more than 100,000 Muslims, rounded some up and raped many of the detainees (in addition to torturing them).

At this rate, Bush could out-do Hitler by millions.

People, prove Bush is a Nazi. Name one time he ever blamed Jews for his problems! Name one time he ever plotted to kill millions of Jews!

The only Nazis are in the Democratic Party!
Rocky, did you bother to read anything above?

Let's suppose Hitler won WWII and killed all of the Jews in the world. After he finished killing all of the Jews and found himself with no Jews left to kill, thus being forced to abstain from Jew-killing, would he still be a Nazi or would he suddenly stop being a Nazi once all the Jews were gone?

I believe he would still be a Nazi.

Now, had he finished killing all of the Jews, do you think he would have stopped there or do you think he would have started killing various other groups? Perhaps he'd finish off the Gypsies. Next, maybe he'd target Africans. In time, perhaps he'd target Arabs. All the while he would still be a Nazi, whether killing Jews or not.
