On This Date in! In internet arguments, the first person to resort to the statement “That’s what the Nazi’s did!” is ruled the automatic loser in the argument.

So, if you find yourself arguing against someone who is staunchly anti-union and believes unions are evil incarnate, you can console yourself with the fact that Hitler also hated unions.
