Tox, I wanted to point out this is what I'm talking about. In the cop thread, Chris and I have a difference of opinion...and while I believe I debated that issue well, that's all it really boils down to is a difference of opinion.Funny, so did Gurps. So did I. SHE claims she was talking about concentration camps, and MEANT it.just show me where she mentioned Nazis and I will let it go.
I quoted what she actually said
So, you say she did not mean specifically "Nazi" concentration camps, but she DID say, "Never Again" should mean something.
So, what does "Never Again" mean?
So, Rep Cortez discusses concentration camps, invokes specifically the Holocaust by using the phrase "Never Again", and your point is....what again?According to the great historian of the Holocaust, Raul Hilberg, the phrase “Never Again” first appeared on handmade signs put up by inmates at Buchenwald in April, 1945, shortly after the camp had been liberated by U.S. forces. “I think it was really the Communists who were behind it, but I am not sure,” Hilberg said in one of the last interviews he gave before his death in the summer of 2007. Since then, “Never Again” has become kind of shorthand for the remembrance of the Shoah.
Oh, yeah, factually inaccurate, as usual.
In this thread, MidnightSpanker is simply factually wrong on every level, and I feel I have used actual facts to counter Spanker's inaccurate opinions with actual facts.
Both threads rely on debate techniques, but one thread is simply a discussion of opinion where no one is right (even though I, of course, am right) and the other is this thread, where it is clear there is simple factual inaccuracies and factual accuracies.
