Susan Surrandon & Pope Nazi - Missing the point/off the mark

Opinionators decry Susan Sarandons factual identification of thE Pope as a Nazi,
He WAS in the Hitler Youth
They say the claims are false because the pope wasn't personally responsible for "smashing babies against walls"
if you think nazi's wear black and red
if you think nazi's hate jews

you are wrong

nazi's are about p o w e r
nazi's are a specific political group that was ideologically aligned with fascism
nazi's are fascists
fascists love p o w e r

the jews and gypsies were scapegoats
not the target
the target is power

and p o w e r cares nothing for nationality
or color
it cares about p o w e r
and domination

the new sustenance is eating the poor
the beast eats whom, or whatever is readily available

a nazi doesn't have to kill jews to be a nazi
a nazi has to love power enough to step on anything or anyone that gets in its way

first they came for the communists,
and i didn't speak out because i wasn't a communist.

then they came for the trade unionists,
and i didn't speak out because i wasn't a trade unionist.

then they came for the jews,
and i didn't speak out because i wasn't a jew.

then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

the holocaust involved intellectuals, unionists, anarchists
not just jews
your so vain

anyone that got in their way
the pope is a nazi
because he has power, and oppression spewing from every corner of the globe where there is a catholic church

the neo-cons have power because they oppress and exploit every corner of the world -they care not but for whom may get in their way (someday will it be you?)

nazi nazi nazi nazi

a nazi by any other name is still a nazi
