Never Again

Perhaps after everyone reads this article, there will be no more comparisons of comparatively frivilous things (like filibusters, for example) to Nazis, the Holocaust, SS soldiers, Gestapo etc.

Someone's stupid enough to say it, the other side gets all self-righteous and issues statements urging the individual to condemn it, the other side clarifies their remark without officially apologizing, the pressure builds, and finally the person apologizes.

But what's sad is that it keeps happening on both sides of the aisle. You can't condemn the other side if you're guilty of it yourself.

Just stop it already.
