I’m confused; I thought committed antisemites usually professed admiration for Hitler. Yet while Nick Griffin is busy publicly distancing his whites-only party not only from Dolphy but ostensibly from the entire concept of being racist, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is also sticking the boot into a man normally embraced by the more, um, activist elements of the Muslim world.

In a statement that might from this distance look like the squawkings of a fucking loon but, for the Middle East, actually qualifies as quite staid and thoughtful political discourse, Ahmadinejad has accused rival presidential candidates of colluding with Jews (in his phrase, “Zionist entities”) to concoct false data about the state of the economy in order to discredit him, saying:
Such insults and accusations against the government are a return to Hitler’s methods, to repeat lies and accusations... until everyone believes those lies.
How come his former admirers and acolytes are suddenly rejecting him all over the shop? It’s just like that bit in the Bible: “‘Verily I say unto thee, thrice before the cock crow shalt thou deny me, young Paduan,’ saith Hitler.” (Memo: check this, but it sounds about right.)

It's "Padawan." And Sith don't have Padawans anyway. They have an Apprentice.

One Apprentice, and one Master. No more, no less. :)

Don't ask me to cite references. I'm a Star Trek fan.

Not necessarily; the quote is of course from the part of the gospels where Jesus tames the shrew. Right after he and the Scooby-Doo gang investigate the strange goings-on at the house of Lazarus. (Source: Wikipedia)

Oh, the Ignostic text! :) Thought I recognised the dialect. That's the version that was misattributed to the Tribe of Brian, until it was actually proven to have descended from a document originally written by a scribe of the Tribe of deMille, and ...

oh, damn, I can't keep it up ... :)
