I'm the only one who read it as Hitler = Democrats? Are people really that amused by "clever" dubbing that they just miss that?
Anyway, I digress. I figured more people would have complained, but before I could post and say, "WTF meister?" there were an assortment of heil-fives. It seems like the forum is going through another bout of its twice annual "teh dumbz" syndrome. (TDS)
I watched it and it was bloody hilarious.
If the thread/video was about actual Hitler and the Holocaust I could understand some of your upset but you are taking it way too seriously IMO. I was very happy that Brown won; not cause I like Brown but because it will hopefully block the non-reforming reform. In no way, however, did I take that joke to be that Hitler = Democrats as you seem to have interpreted it. Instead, I laughed at the "clever" dubbing as you put it. This is because this meme (if you can call it that) has been around for a while and applied to a variety of different subjects.
