CyberLizard, someone whom I only know from his infrequent postings over at my usual Scienceblogs/Blogger hangouts and yet still suspect is a /b/tard, apparently reads WorldNetDaily so you don’t have to, and he stumbled across a doozy. The wingnutosphere is apparently all a-flutter over a possible connection between James von Brunn (a holocaust denier and birther, among all the other craziness necessary to become a triple-murderer at 89 years old), and… get this… Darwin.
Where did that report come from?
The Moonbattery blog revealed von Brunn advocated the socialist policies espoused by Adolf Hitler and used Darwinian theory to support his anti-Semitism.
Holy shit. A paranoid, conspiracy theorizing, hate and fear mongering site using another paranoid, conspiracy theorizing, hate and fear mongering site to back up their paranoid conspiracy theories.
Dammit, my irony meter just asploded.
Nested blockquotes FTW!
Protip for creationists: Darwin had nothing to do with “social Darwinism”. And Hitler was a good Christian doing his good Christian duty of killing everyone who didn’t think like them. Conflating Hitler and Darwin is like violating Godwin’s Law by default before even stepping into the arena to debate creationism vs evolution. As in, you’re rolling natural 1′s on every roll of your 20-sided die — just by owning a 20-sided die, you’re already failing.
