Demonizing your idealogical opponent

Great quote that's right on the money

If I could outlaw one rhetorical and stylistic device I think it would be comparing your idealogical opponent to Hitler, Nazis, and fascists*. It cheapens the true horrors of WWII and the Holocaust, and instantly destroys any chance for a civilized debate. The political left and right both employ this "scorched earth" tactic of demonizing the other side, and some religious leaders aren't much better.

Do I have to say I agree?
