Is Dawkins a nazi? Check it out!

The main question is: Is there any difference between nazist hate speech and antitheists way of talking? We made a small experiment! Check it out!
Translation by S.P.: It all started one morning. I had a fun discussion with some Marxist, when suddenly my opponent decided to quote “Mein Kampf”. I don’t really remember what was the argument about, but it seemed quite imaginary. I found this timeless “masterpiece” of deep humanistic thoughts* on the internet and began my search for the right fragment. I was hopping from one sentence to another and suddenly I found the following:
"Christianity could not content itself with building up its own altar; it was absolutely forced to undertake the destruction of the heathen altars. Only from this fanatical intolerance could its apodictic faith take form; this intolerance is, in fact, its absolute presupposition."

Cool, isn’t it? And where is this deep Catholicism of Adolf, which is assigned to him with such pleasure, when he actually brought Christianity down to some nasty political party? Oh well… However, my eyes were turned towards something else – this rhetoric, allusive venom, a well hidden hatred under the cloak of wanna-be philosophy – it felt familiar. Ha! It sounds totally like Richie Dawkins, I thought. It all started to make sense and soon after I shared my idea with some of my friends on a facebook group. They left me astonished. Before I even got a plan they already knew what to do. They created a few pictures on the same day and began to sow the seeds. There was a huge possibility that the picture will end up on some anti-theistic groups and no one will even take a peek at it but we were lucky! Let’s start with the first picture:
It was quite popular in a group called “Dlaczego lepiej być ateistą” (Why it’s better to be an atheist). It got so popular that it was posted twice (the graphic was slightly different the other time). The result? 
TRANSLATION: " "Christianity could not content itself with building up its own altar; it was absolutely forced to undertake the destruction of the heathen altars. Only from this fanatical intolerance could its apodictic faith take form; this intolerance is, in fact, its absolute presupposition."
Almost 300 likes and 50 shares! No one noticed that we assigned the “Mein Kampf” quote to Richard Dawkins. For the second wave our brave trolls prepared a picture that featured a quote from the notes written down in the Headquarters of Hitler, with Himmler among others, in 1941. Next to the quote we got our brilliant Richie:
TRANSLATION: If, in the course of a thousand or two thousand years, science arrives at the necessity of renewing its points of view, that will not mean that science is a liar. Science cannot lie, for it's always striving, according to the momentary state of knowledge, to deduce what is true. When it makes a mistake, it does so in good faith. It's Christianity that's the liar. It's in perpetual conflict with itself. 

Once again on “Dlaczego lepiej być ateistą” it got featured twice. This time we got 200 likes and 47 shares. Dawkins became overrated so we brought up the dead Hitchens. We pasted a quote from “Monologe im Fuhrerhauptquartier 1941-1944” by Adolf:
TRANSLATION: It was a world enlightened by the idea of tolerance. Christianity was the first creed in the world to exterminate its adversaries in the name of love. Its key-note is intolerance. 
Turns out that “Nowy Ateizm” (New Atheism) came with support. 154 people liked it and 22 shared. And another fanpage called "Strona antyklerykalna - promuje tolerancję" (Anticlerical page – spreading tolerance; seems self-contradictory, doesn’t it?). Folks at "Dlaczego lepiej być..." didn't fail to share it either. Another fanpage borrowed the picture too. "The amount of Likes and Shares obviously decreased but we didn't give in. We struck what the..." antitheists like the most – progress! Quotes from “Monologe im Fuhrerhauptquartier” were assigned to Nietzsche. “Dlaczego lepiej być ateistą” once again took the bait:
TRANSLATION: "What a certificate of mental poverty it was for Christianity that it destroyed the libraries of the ancient world! Graeco-Roman thought was made to seem like the teachings of the Devil."
84 likes and 19 shares into the depths of the internet! A good barrel of laughs must’ve go on, so we went onward with the path we’ve taken. Nietzsche and Fuhrer went hand in hand. With great precision:

We had heads full of ideas. Pol Pot’s quote about killing the Buddhist monks and the economists of left-wing France. Mark Twain and Adolf… We had to stop eventually. The pictures were liked almost 1000 times on facebook! Most of them probably consider themselves rationalists. It’s hard to count all these likes from shares and shares of shares and so on… Is there a moral to this story? I don’t think so, but we have questions, two questions to be precise! First, how is it that when we have a great access to resources, instead of knowing the basics of history, philosophy and literature, extent our horizons and develop, but then we hit the Like button on these dumb pictures like morons? Secondly, where do you draw the line between the uberintellectual, sharp, yet full of humanism and care about mankind style of Dawkins and Hitler’s hate speech? How thick this line is, even when the followers of “The pope of atheism” couldn’t notice it?
PS. Yes I know what Godwin’s Law is. XD
* In some circles it’s also called a profound idiocy. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
