FYI-- From: <http://frontpagemag.com/notepad/hn12-04-00.htm> <snip> I print these recent postings (below) from the Sixties List message board, without comment, except to remind citizens of the price we have paid for surrendering the liberal arts divisions of our universities to the communist left. -------------------- December 2, 2000 For those who feel that Iraqi children are not fully human, comparisons of the Democrats and Republicans to Hitler are indeed strained. But it is only fair to point out that according to the Holocaust Museum, Hitler killed approximately 1.2 million Jewish kids under the age of 13 in the concentration camps (further diagregation unavailable). How does that compare with the U.S. kid body count in Iraq? The U.S. government has killed, conservatively, 1/2 million Iraq kids under the under the age of 5 with its sanctions, courtesy of Gore's Democrats and Bush's Republicans. Both of these p.r.-enhanced "Hitlers" are fully committed to continuation of the sanctions. On all the candidates, only Nader condemned the genocide by sanctions consistently, repeatedly, and unequivocally. I agree with Ms. Cox and feel that refusal to face ugly but very real facts about the closeness of the Democrats and Republicans to Hitler on genocide, especially genocide directed against children is somewhere between pathetic and contemptible. Killing off the children of Iraq is, of course hardly a deviation for the Democrats and Republicans. There's the "apology" by Clinton and Albright (hey, where were Gore and Lieberman?) for the U.S.'s shameful blocking of moves to prevent genocide in Rwanda (see Ch. 15 of the "Report of Emminent Personages). Also when, inconveniently, the truth commission, partly funded by the U.S., concluded that the U.S-funded killing machine committed genocide in Guatemala, Clinton apologized -- but of course the apology did not keep him and his Demo-Repub cronies from continued funding of the genocide of the Kurds by Turkey or the continuous shredding of the Geneva Convention by Israel, as it uses U.S.-supplied rockets, tanks and artillery to deal with the "threat"of Palestinian kids throwing rocks to protest Israeli apartheid. This Sixties List needs a serious reality check. Is it about the spirit of the 60's, or keeping in power the same Demos and indistinguishable (or scarcely distinguishable) Republicans who murdered the Vietnamese by the million?

To speak of being between them is as silly as > to speak of being between Hitler and Goebbels. Isn't this analogy pretty strained, indeed insulting? Whatever their flaws, Bush and Gore are no Hitler and Stalin!
