says 'Blue eyed people are kind and blah blah blah'.

Although I just saw one that says 'Brown eyes people are............all things wonderful'

OK, I am green eyed, and haven't seen one about me yet!! wink

But it really does make me think of the Nazis every time I see a generalisation post like this.

It would make me think of stupid people.

It makes me think of idiots.

I've had one of those appear on my FB feed recently, from somebody I really wouldn't expect. I think they meant it affectionately towards their DP, but I was a bit hmm about it too.

Wonder who will be the first 'original' poster to say "der, FB's pathetic, it's the work of the devil". Or similar.

You're being a bit unreasonable.

HugoDarling Mon 02-Sep-13 23:02:51

Ehm, not really, no.

Oh, I dunno ... posting shite on facebook vs conducting pogroms which involve transporting millions to concentration camps and gassing them; it's a thin line.

MammaTJ Mon 02-Sep-13 23:20:22

Actually, it is Wallison, a very thin line between posting about being superior because of your eye colour and really believing people with a different eye colour are inferior and killing them because of it.

Wallison Mon 02-Sep-13 23:22:04

hmm

I've seen them and I too are yet to see a green eyed one!

I am green eyed but I dont think Nazi. I think "my eyes are indescribable" grin

Nag, I dont think anything.

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 02-Sep-13 23:24:00

I think you're being a bit hysterical OP.

AmberLeaf Mon 02-Sep-13 23:29:47

YABU

They aren't saying the other eye colours are inferior, they are just saying why that particular colour is good.

Incidently, the ones Ive seen have green eyes with the brown one.

MammaTJ Mon 02-Sep-13 23:33:57

I am not normally know for hysteria, to be fair! grin

I am quite a chilled and relaxed person. Maybe I know too many Jewish people.

I think my bio family are jewish.

<pointless statement>

Green eyes are the best any way!

HarrietSchulenberg Mon 02-Sep-13 23:40:38

Not seen it pop up on my page yet but it would make me think of the old blue eyes brown eyes experiment.

It's funny because I think of Nazis when I see Owen Paterson's Nazi marksmen shooting badgers in the woods.

Pure evil.

MammaTJ Mon 02-Sep-13 23:49:12

SP, I wouldn't want to attribute personality traits to them though! Any more than to ginger hair or black skin.

tethersend Mon 02-Sep-13 23:49:57

You know what makes me think of Nazis?

Swastikas.

MammaTJ Mon 02-Sep-13 23:49:59

Harriet, yes, that too!

MammaTJ Mon 02-Sep-13 23:50:56

Tyler, you want a badger culling bedate, go start your own thread, there's a sweetie!

MammaTJ Mon 02-Sep-13 23:51:33

tethersend, that works too, although it can be more subtle than that.

Wallison Mon 02-Sep-13 23:53:16

<<You know what makes me think of Nazis?

Swastikas.>>

Yy. That and concentration camps. Sorry to bang on about it but it's a pretty distinctive way of spotting them.

MammaTJ Mon 02-Sep-13 23:53:22

SP, I seen to have missed a trick somewhere, you mean you were adopted? Had I known, I would have snatched you up!! grin

Wallison Mon 02-Sep-13 23:54:28

<I am not normally know for hysteria, to be fair! grin>>

Never say never.

MammaTJ Mon 02-Sep-13 23:56:26

But Nazis and their views were around before the concentration camps and before they identified themselves with swastikas. If you want to keeo that very simplified view of the world, you carry on and hide this thread don't let me bother you. If you want to learn how insidious these things can become, then stick around.
