Hitler and Me
At another, wider read, website than mine I made a reference to Hitler. Compared the fucking Aussies to the Nazi leader for their swift, violent reaction to Occupy Melbourne last fall.
Another commenter, having read my Hitler bit, wrote, "First let's dump the references to Hitler," before going on to piss on the Occupy Movement's willingness to use public space to make a political point or two.
Could be there are not that many people who reference Hitler any more. Could be there are more contempory children of Hitler I could reference. I think referencing Hitler is both useful and necessary. When you write or say the word Hitler everybody knows what the fuck you are talking about.
Has it become politically incorrect to use the word Hitler? Is Hitler the new cunt of our western lexicon?
