Are we in some danger of turning into a police state that I was unaware of?

Well, there's the PATRIOT act....

Which is awful, unconstitutional, and needs to be repealed sooner rather than later, but doesn't give law enforcement the absolute powers that they would have in a police state.

The fact that we can still say these things on this forum and not have S.W.A.T. teams busting into our houses while we're typing with barking dogs and automatic weapons trained on us says everything.

Also, I'm all for making jokes at everyones' expense including my own on all levels and strive not to be anal retentive about stuff like this, but as a person of Semetic ethnicity, I feel the commercial is trivializing the Holocaust completely. The Holocaust was a genocidal movement, not quite what they're attempting to portray in the commercial. Show some Nazis marching around or something if you're trying to draw comparisons to a police state, not Jews getting herded out of a train.

Yes exactly see while the symbolic image of the Porajmos/Ha-Shoah is the Vernichtungslager, the majority of its victims suffered a much more drawn out process.

I think everyone watching Steal a Pencil for Me might be a better way to educate about what the bastard NAZIs almost succeeded in doing.

holy crap... how long have those ads been on tv? And are they on mtv or mtv2? And how long before the dudes with assault rifles reak into MY house?

Honestly... these ads are entirely about mtv's affect on society over the last decade-and-a-half, and mtv doesn't even know it.

True, at least until I call them, which I'm doing... right..... now. There.

I'm going to wager a bet all those people were corralled and sent to Death Camps because they were actually watching music videos, something the alleged MTV doesn't show enough of.
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

Hopefully they were rounding up all former cast members of The Real World.

They could throw in anyone who shows up for TRL as well.

Listen. And understand. La la Vasquez is out there. She can't be bargained with. She can't be reasoned with. She doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And she absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

Uhm, being educated and not watching MTV for close to 10 years, what was the point of those ads?  Is it that they are going to round me up and force me to watch endless episodes of Tila Tequila?  Super Sweet 16?  TRL?  Or worse the Sucker Free Countdown?  I am no sucka that is for damn sure.

I think the message of these ads are simple:

"Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it."

Simple.

Okay so... if I vote for John McCain the USA is going to turn into a police state?  Seriously?  I don't think McCain's got it in him.

You know what MTV?  Go to hell.
