Quote# 69417

Modern public health and the antitobacco movement have symbols eerily reminiscent of those of the iconic
20th century dictatorships. In the US, there's a Surgeon General who wears a dark military uniform, while his
bureaucratic brother-in-arms leading the Drug War is called the Drug Czar. 3 The omnipresent no-smoking
symbol is red, white and black – the colours of the German swastika.

Translation to english: "Health care is hitler!"

I take it then that you think dark uniforms in general are reminiscent of dictatorships? Since the USPHS uniform is based on the US Navy's uniform. Of course, the US Navy uniform does bear a striking resemblence to the Kriegsmarine uniform...and the Royal Navy Uniform, and pretty much every other navy in the world. As for the red white and black of the 'No Smoking' sign, I guess the same goes for every other regulatory sign out there? Including the European traffic signs, American "Danger" placards, and whatnot? I'm sure you don't like following rules, but really, rules <> nazism.

Seriously? If the health care system were really that evil, don't you think they'd try to find a way to hide it better? But you're really, really reaching here.

And I find it endlessly funny how they're freaking out over the term "Drug Czar." This term was used at least as far back as the Reagan years.

Anti healthcare.
Pro tobbaco.


Bet he'll change his tune when he gets diagnosed with lung cancer.

...You gonna start bitching about traffic sign colors next?
Just don't smoke, okay?

Wow, Altria's PR sucks.

I like traffic lights

I bet you think this sign is Nazi in origin, too:



U-turns are patriotic! Any cop giving a ticket for an illegal U-turn is a Nazi scumbag! Especially if he wears a dark uniform!

This is obviously a smoker who is invoking Hitler to justify his own personal addiction. I had a friend die of lung cancer. Maybe, if she got the antitobacco message sooner, she would not have died such a tragic death.

I had a bried look at the article in question. Seriously, WTF? That was either a holw bunch fo crazy of it's a really clever joke.

I think "Denying the Undeniable" is an apt title for that piece, but not in the way the author believes.

Oh. My. God. The Atlanta Falcons' colors also are red, white and black. Their owner, (the very Jewish) Arthur Blank, MUST be a Nazi.
... Retard.

The Czar nickname goes back to the Nixon administration. You didn't have a problem with Reagan and both Bushes having Czars, either. In fact, Republicans during Dubya's reign of terror were asking for more of them.

And if we stopped using every color found in the symbols or flags of evil dictatorships, we'd have nothing left.

Maybe Black and Red are used because they are easily identifiable colors that stand out? No that can't be it must be a Nazi connection.

red, white and black – the colours of the German swastika.

So does this mean that piebald horses, tri-coloured dogs, and tortoiseshell cats are all Nazi infiltrates?

eye's the pets suspiciously

And here I thought it was because red and black are extremely noticeable and are universally recognized as "danger".

Guess we should take down all the warning signs since they're "Nazi". On the plus side, we'd have less idiots running around.

Umm...lots of other countries have public health and pretty strict tobacco restrictions, yet full-out dictatorships are pretty uncommon among them.

Also, lots of Americans want public health care. Just ask anyone who either has a chronic illness or otherwise needed medical attention but couldn't afford it.

1/8/2010 5:53:01 PM



The no-smoking symbol is in the same colors as a swastika...Yes, yes. That must be it. How did I fail to see it? I am completely, 100% convinced by this analogy now.

Wait a minute, he's onto something, Ladybirds are red and black, plus they have white around their eyes. OMG Ladybirds are Nazis!!!!!

Ok, and my father having chronic asthma is a swastika in disguise. Please, go somewhere else to preach!!!!

Is this moron arguing that smoking is healthy and the anti-smoking lobby is like the Nazis in Germany?
Someone has a screw loose.

Note the black and red colour scheme, only a goostepping Nazi could possibly want to save you from a fate like this!
