Could You People Be More Full of Yourselves?

Jon Gold insists that troofers should not be compared to Holocaust revisionists, but those who resisted the Nazis:

If I were to compare the 9/11 Truth Movement to anything, it would be to the White Rose.

According to Wikipedia, the White Rose "was a non-violent resistance group in Nazi Germany, consisting of a number of students from the University of Munich and their philosophy professor. The group became known for an anonymous leaflet campaign, lasting from June 1942 until February 1943, that called for active opposition to German dictator Adolf Hitler's regime." [...] "Today, the members of the White Rose are honoured in Germany as some of its greatest heroes because they opposed the Third Reich in the face of almost certain death."

Uhh, but you do not face certain death. You don't even face unlikely death. At worst you face the prospects of someone making unfavorable comments on your YouTube, which you whine like a little child over. Please do not insult the memories of those who actually did give up their lives to fight a real evil, by comparing them with a bunch of people who at no risk to themselves chat pointlessly on Internet forums while tilting at windmills.

Update from Pat: Looks like Jon's cribbing his arguments from Uncle Fetzer:
