The mindless, unquestioning support for any and every action of this administration without question. THAT is the unique situation in US political history and THAT is the equivalence of the German people in the 1920s and 30s
For the life of me I cannot understand why you insist on clinging to this view of those who support the President. As I've said on several ocassions, the hypocrisy in this statement is amazing. You call Bush supporters blind zealots with a singular point of view. Yet, in a way you have the exact same type of view, only on the opposite side of the spectrum. Supporters of Bush blow your mind. I mean, to you it's so incredibly obvious
what a terrible President and human being the man is. How could anyone disagree that was capable of free thought?
Therein lies your problem. In reality, Bush supporters are often far more open minded and capable of rational independent thought than you are. For example, I as a Bush supporter can understand some of the reasons you hate him and his administration. I understand why you dislike the man's policies. I don't agree at all, but I understand. But to you...it's the actual people
, not the view
that you take issue with. You have the unmitigated arrogance to believe that the only reason they think that way is because they are not intelligent, brainwashed or just not informed as well as you are.
It's a very dangerous mindset you have...believing that anyone who is a free and intelligent thinker will agree with you. However, it does make you feel better yourself I would imagine. At least that's a plus.
