Worst EVER Example of Godwin's Law in Action
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram needs to fire Gil LeBreton ... NOW!
There've been a lot of dubious comparisons to Nazi Germany thrown around over the years, but CANADA?!?!?!?!?
I mean, CANADA?!?!?!?!? The country who fretted that cheering too loudly for a victory might be seen as rude? Oooooh, better get the International Criminal Court involved in that particular crime against humanity.
I admit that our neighbors to the north can be annoying in their "Don't confuse us with Americans!" self-righteousness, and their stellar gold-medal performance during the Vancouver Olympics made them even harder to take.
But comparing Canada's euphoria and patriotism in celebrating the achievements of its athletes to the Nazis during the '36 Olympics? What a dumbass! I've never liked LeBreton (or his fellow Star-Telegram sportswriter, Randy Galloway, for that matter), but now I know he's a complete and utter asshat.
Read this blog post for a stellar fisking of LeBreton's asshattery.
