[QUOTE]In Response to Re: I thought Thomas Was Done Talking??? : You really are a pompous assss when you get caught being childish aren't you? If you've been reading this stuff, you'll see I've had all kinds of nice things to say. But obviously you haven't. The dumbest shiiiit in America could fathom I'm not defending Thomas. The "poem is all about the Holocaust plain and simple" That is you're written position. Guess....another review is necessary. The "poem". If you read it, you'll notice it uses 5 verses, to drive home it's main point. Those 5 topics get EQUAL BILLING and are: 1. communists 2.jews 3.trade unionists 4.catholics 5.me/you/us If you're not starting to feel a bit foolish....you should be. Pretty obvious why you want to spare other posters. Again. You state, the poem is " All about the holocaust plain and simple". Care to revisit that? ....... And when reasonable, logical people don't want to accept that, you get tired of discussing it? Do you really feel your "interpretation'... means more than what the author expressly wrote? He wrote about comi's and unionists and catholics.....and we're supposed to ignore all of that and buy your theory that it means "Obama is being compared to Hitler" ?...or that it's all about "the genocide of 6 million people????????? Well it ain't, plain and simple. The most intellectually challenged among us, should know better than to float that idea. Regardless of our situation, we're generally programmed to hate those who may be Nazi. The guy who wrote this is an Anti Nazi. Fletch, you over reacted to this crap wildly, and you know it. You threw gas on the fire. In attempting to further your cause, you went over the line. If you feel diminished by admitting that fine. Just stop responding.

Ha, Taking another run at me again, and again its like you're trying to argue that the sky isn't blue on a sunny day. You want pompous and childish? Read above. Well done. I'll ignore all the personal stuff and stick to the argument.
steve, there have been a lot of posters here defending what Thomas wrote, and doing a very good job of it. Nite, Kelvana, and others have actually made some very good arguments and chnaged my thoughts on some level. Some of the discussion has been very good and there are valid points on both sides.
Then we have your argument, which really has nothing to do with Thomas at all. You've staked out your argument on the utterly absurd contention that the peom Thomas used in his comment "has absolutely no correlation to Hitler or the Nazis". So instead of stooping to your level of namecalling and deflections, let's review the facts
-the poem begins with 'in Germany'
-the poem specifically mentions the rounding up of the Jews.
-the poem was written by Martin Niemoller. Apparently you don't know who he is, so I'll help you out. He lived in Germany during the Holocaust, was captured by the Nazis for supporting Jews and was sent to the infamous concentration camp Daccau for 8 years.
-This peom was a reflection of his experience. IT IS ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST.
So, you can just admit you were wrong in what you said, or you can continue to be childish. This is the single stupidest argument I have ever had on this board, because it isn't even about Thomas or the Bruins and you are clinging to a point that you are obviously wrong about. Honestly, I'd love to get past this and hear your comments on something else -- from past experience I have found your thoughts to usually be pretty inciteful.
Just admit you're wrong about the poem. It's already obvious. I admit I am wrong all the time and it will make you feel better. Cheers.
