But you did it agian. By placing the word NAZI in close association with for example people who object to OUTSOURCING you create a link between the two. If you do it enough (which is what the political media is all about) people start to think that people who oject to OUTSOURCING are NAZI’S. Its a classic Pavlovs dog tactic.

I suppose it would look that way if one either couldn’t understand the meaning of what I wrote or completely ignored the meaning of what I wrote.

This isn’t verbal communication – the words on the page don’t fade from memory so that the only things one remembers are “nazi” and “outsourcing.” If the urge to associate overwhelms you, simply re-read.

BTW, also, they were completely separate ideas in separate paragraphs. I guess you really don’t have faith in the intelligence of most readers?

Not quite the same thing as saying “Republicans are Nazis” or having commercials of Bush and Hitler…
