Godwin’s Law of internet arguments states that on a long enough timeline, the probability of someone drawing a comparison to Hitler approaches 1.
“This is a government that is utterly committed to the campaign against the Daesh death cult.”
And then, this.
“The Nazis did terrible evil but they had sufficient sense of shame to try and hide it. These people boast about their evil. This is the extraordinary thing.”
‘Course this isn’t even remotely the first time Abbott has used a comparison to the Nazis to attempt to make a point.
“We’ve seen in the century just gone, the most unspeakable things happen, but the atrocities that were committed by the Nazis, by the communists and others, they were ashamed of them, they tried to cover them up. This mob, by contrast, as soon as they’ve done something gruesome and ghastly and unspeakable, they’re advertising it on the internet for all to see which makes them, in my mind, nothing but a death cult and that’s why I think it’s quite proper to respond with extreme force against people like this.”
And then in March of this year, he called Opposition Leader Bill Shorten the “Dr Goebbels of Economic Policy.“
