Yeah, I'm just saying, many people consider him to be a Real American HeroTM and all that good shit, and I hate to actually pull out Godwin's Law, but the parallels are interesting to say the least.

Hitler Jackson considered himself above the law, persecuted the Jews Cherokee, along with several other minorities Native American tribes, and needlessly invaded other sovereign state's territories colonies without permission, and claimed it for his country.

See? Practically the same bullshit. Hitler was only worse because he did it on a larger scale, and started a major war. If Jackson were the leader of another nation, and pulled the same shit today, he'd be condemned for ethnic cleansing.[/Godwin's Law][/threadjack]

This is...disturbingly close to the sort of thing I'd do when I'm fed up of people and anxious about saying it.

I suspect that's why I'm not allowed nice things.
