We need to can the hype

Hi, Uncle Vladdi

Nobody from either party has used tactics like those of the Communists and Nazis in their run-up to power; unless you say that is someone says "boo!", he is Gestapo. When a parent scolds her child, she is not Gestapo. There so much hyperbole flying around lately, it would be ridiculous if it weren't so harmful. I call upon Daniel Pipes and everyone else around there who is whipping readers into a frenzy, to cut it out! We are a civilized country. Let's act like it.
