The Kitler Menace

Of the menaces to civilization currently manifesting themselves on the Internet none is more egregious than “Cats that Look Like Hitler.Com.”

This site features photos of cats- all in various states of undress, i should add- that look like one of history’s greatest butchers! These “Kitlers”, as the site’s proprietor facetiously likes to call them, may seem to be nothing more than cute aberrations of nature, but the truth, alas, is much darker. This seemingly innocuous site is in fact part of a Neo-Conservative conspiracy to make us all feel comfortable with fascism so that William Kristol and his cronies at P.N.A.C can tighten the noose. You mark my words- as these “Kitlers” gain public acceptance so will fascism and tyranny in all its forms. One should keep in mind what Hannah Arendt said about “the banality of evil,” and then consider this question- is there anything more banal than a cute little kitty curled up on a rug in front of the family hearth? What better Trojan Horse to introduce the evil of totalitarianism into the average American home than this furry little embodiment of the everyday?

Rest assured that complaints will be forthcoming to both the Anti-Defamation League and the American Civil Liberties Union. I realize the latter are busy with such important issues as securing more women-only hours at Harvard’s Gym, but I feel this fifth column activity is of the direst importance and must be acted upon lest the world be over-run by meowing little William  Kristols.
