Oh, enough with this "indoctrination" shit. Plus, a lot of other people were also born on April 20. As you say, there's no link there.

For Celestia's sake, is there anything these people won't randomly drag Hitler into?
5/8/2012 4:09:04 AM
I'm pretty sure I've seen this before. Besides, I was born on April 21. Does that mean I'm Hitler Plus One? No. You're an idiot.

So, GLSEN seeks to "end discrimination, harassment, and bullying"?
How dare they?!? Indoctrinate our kids to be tolerant and kind towards their fellow school mates, what an affront!
Hitler sent homosexuals to the concentration camps and forced them to wear a pink triangle.
That's how much HE liked "their lifestyle".
You do know what the S stand for in GLSEN, don't you? It's all right; I didn't either, a few minutes ago, so I googled it before commenting on it, and now I know. It stands for Straight. They are promoting the straight lifestyle as well, apparently.

It's sad to see an entire political party accepting superstition, bigotry and anti-American ideals as their platform. Nothing good will come of this. Perhaps Naziism or communism as has happened in the past.
5/8/2012 4:52:52 AM
Only in America is there such opposition to tolerance and equality.
5/8/2012 5:03:26 AM
What's the matter Jerry? Upset because they've co-opted the birthday of your hero?
5/8/2012 5:06:41 AM
Pretty sure the April 20 reference is to Columbine if anything. Even though those guys were psychotic as well as having been bullied.

It always amazes me that people think super evil top-secret organisations are controlling the world and leaving clever little clues everywhere for giggles. Why would they do that? And compromise the layers upon layers of complex secrecy that must exist to perpetuate these conspiracies.
If you're trying to secretly force through your Hitler-style policies onto the unsuspecting public, you're not going to choose Hitler's birthday because of some fanatical devotion to sentimentality.

Because Adolf Hitler's birth is the only notable event or birth that has ever occurred on April 20th.

Promoting tolerance is not the same as indoctrinating children to be gay. And there are only 365 days in the year, so some dates are going to be coincidental.
5/8/2012 6:31:52 AM
I don't know about you, but I'd have a hard time trying to indoctrinate someone by taping my mouth shut.
Grow up. Here's some real indoctrination
5/8/2012 7:08:21 AM
Yeah, why would we teach kids tolerance and promote peace? Uh, why is this such a bad thing again?
5/8/2012 7:26:07 AM
I'm glad he pointed that date thing out.
9/11 is the date president Allende was overthrown by the brutal dictator Pinochet, and nothing noteworthy is to ever happen on that date again. Come on, it's already taken!
5/8/2012 8:19:23 AM
What's your point? Every day is someone's birthday. I have the same birthday as Sam Walton, but I'm not building a monopoly by exploiting others on minimum-wage jobs.
5/8/2012 8:26:13 AM
Isn't the date of the Day of Silence different every year?
A quick wiki: "The Day of Silence has been held each year in April since 1996. The 2012 Day of Silence was April 20. The 2010 Day of Silence was held on April 16; in 2011 it was on April 15."
5/8/2012 9:13:17 AM
Yes, because Hitler was such a bastion of tolerance...
Ummm, Saudi Arabia and Iran ring a bell? It may be bad here but it's far from the only place with intolerance. Hell, even in the most secular countries you'll find intolerant nuts like the nuts that claim Europe is being taken over by Sharia Law.

@ Brendan Rizzo
Pfft. I wish. We've got the BNP here in Britain appropriating everything even vaguely patriotic and making it racist
You've got Le Pen and the National Front finishing third in the French elections
You've got Brevik and his ilk in Northern and Central Europe.
Everywhere has got it's fair share of loonies, it's just more acceptable in America to display the crazy in public. In Europe the spectres of Nazism and Communism keep extremism relatively subdued in public life.
5/8/2012 9:47:45 AM
Wow. So Hitler had a birthday. You right-wing fundies have birthdays.
Hitler was a right-winger. Hitler Ate Sugar
after all, therefore...!
5/8/2012 9:50:52 AM
checkmateI don’t think there’s a link there but how ironic.
Isn't it ironic that the 2012 Republican National Convention will take place on the same dates as the Nazi party Nuremberg Rallies?
I don’t think there’s a link there but how ironic.
I actually made that up. The Nazi party Nuremberg Rallies were always either shortly before or shortly after this year's date for the Republican National Convention. But Jerry wouldn't know how to look it up.
Isn't it funny that Jerry just happened to know the date of the Führergeburtstag by heart?
5/8/2012 11:34:06 AM
it's just a date
That's my mom's birthday and we're both sick of people constantly pointing out it's also Hitler's birthday. Like that makes the day itself evil or something.
5/8/2012 11:46:27 AM
"Look, look! They're not saying anything! Oh, will this indoctrination never cease?"
5/8/2012 11:55:17 AM
Y'know, Jer-bear, April 20th is also the birthday of actor and gay-rights activist George "Sulu" Takei. There's probably a link THERE, if you want to go looking for signs and portents. (Like your halfwit ilk ever do anything else.)

While I understand your frustration with the way things are in the States, you're now taking things to whole new, 'headache' levels.
Anyone notice that since Brendan started getting all 'headachey', 'headache' is no where to be seen? Maybe 'headache' didn't like the competition.
