A few weeks ago, David Cameron described the migrants attempting to enter the country through Calais as a 'swarm'. Despite vocal protests from much of the media, fellow politicians, you, me, etc. the prime minister's chosen term did well to show the ease with which society dehumanises these desperate people.

As you can see, the words of Ley, the head of the German Labour Front who killed himself prior to the Nuremberg trials, achieved a tidy 193 upvotes!
“The Almighty has never helped a lazy man. He does not help the coward. He does not help a people that cannot help itself. The principle applies here” - Adolf Hitler: Broadcast to the German People On The Winter Help Scheme
“If the Jew wants to fight, it is fine with us. We have wanted that fight for a long time. There is no room in the world for the Jews any more. The Jew or us, one of us will have to go” - The Jews or Us by Robert Ley
“This battle is not fought to its end, then take a look at the peoples five hundred years from now. I think you will find but few images of God,” - Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf
Although many of their comments were deleted by moderators, the ones that made it through achieved 480 upvotes to only 16 downvotes.
Which is really depressing.
