I have seen the passions of a mob, and only an absolute idiot would suggest loosing that passion. The 33rd word is "peaceably".

I hope that Gore is found liable for an violence resulting from his speech, let us redistribute some of his wealth, sort of spread it around.

I guess I missed Sarah's call for mob action. Elucidate, O/P.

Gee... Wasn't there some other guy who promoted civil disobedience in the U.S. not so long ago? You know, some fellow who told everyone within earshot about a dream he had? Surely you must remember this guy who got a national holiday named after him. No violence from his "mob."

Hilter never directly called for mob action either, but everyone got the point - same with our new "hot" neo-Nazi leader. Who will get thrown into the cattle cars under her rule, I wonder?

Actually the Nazis were big environmentalists, they loved the black forest.

They were also anti smoking FYI

Hitler in Mein Kampf declared, These are "times when not the mind but the fist decides." Another quote of his is, "I need men who will not stop to think if they are ordered to knock someone down!"
Sounds like Gore's sentiments.

Never Again? How about Never Was as a more appropriate moniker.

Dont relate hitler to any american politician. There are no grounds for those statements and worst of all it makes you sound retarded.

Fits neo-Nazi Palin to a "t". I'm sure she'll work it into her stump speech sometime before the election.
