The Sideshow writes about Nazi comparisons. You’ve got to go read the whole thing. Here’s a small bit:
The horror of Nazi Germany isn’t that they killed six million Jews. It’s not the numbers and it’s not who the victims were, except for one thing: that a nation singled-out specified groups of their own people and declared them bereft of their citizenship and their rights. It would not matter if they had only killed a couple thousands Jews and a handful of gays and political objectors. The point is that these were German citizens who suddenly found themselves without the protections of German law, the personhood that had previously been presumed – and thus, it became acceptable to do things to them that no civilized society subjects people to. And that the threat of this happening to you, to me, to us, is always there, because it always has been; no one is safe, immune.
If the comparison fits — watch your backs.
