The Goebbels-Warner Award

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."
      - attributed to Joseph Goebbels, a Propaganda Minister in Nazi Germany.

A few months ago, an Islamophobe from Florida named Bill Warner started a defamation campaign against Muslims Against Sharia. He made numerous false claims about MASH. He accused us of "incitement to hate by others and the possible murder of President Barack Obama" as well as compared MASH to the 9/11 hijackers among other things. If you look at what was happening in Nazi Germany seven decades ago, you'll realize that Bill Warner employs identical tactic as Joseph Goebbels. The same hateful bigotry that Goebbels displayed towards Jews, Warner displays towards Muslims. The same lies and conspiracy theories that Goebbels was spouting about the Jews, Warner is spouting about MASH. Warner's rhetoric is virtually identical to Goebbels' rhetoric 70 years ago.

We thought that Bill Warner mimicking of Dr. Goebbels deserves special recognition. As of today, we're instituting The Goebbels-Warner Award. The Goebbels-Warner Award will be given to those who attempt to discredit their opponents by fabricating facts or making baseless accusations and repeating them ad nauseam.
