Science on why cyclist haters are basically nazis

By johnboy - 2 October 2013 65

bicycles

With all the dicussion of cyclists in Canberra it’s worth noting the ABC’s Catalyst program from last week which assigned the mindless rage of flabbies in death boxes (aka cars) on “out-group homogeneity bias”, something the Nazis were rather keen on (just to get Godwin out of the way).

Anyway Nazis may think they’re cool in their Hugo Boss suits hooning around in their tanks.

But it didn’t end well for them did it?

The reason drivers hate cyclists is because they inconvenience them. Simple really, I don’t know why you need the ludicrous hate mongering analysis.

….and it is thier
‘entitlement’ to lycra flaunting road usage that gets me!

I thought the police investigation found Godwin’s Law was a forgery.

Since joining the throng of lycra wearers to put $20 in my pocket through savings in petrol and parking every day, I have noticed 90% of cyclists do the right thing.

However, hipster helmetless tossers like the orange hatted clown who flew across the Moore St pedestrian crossing at lunch today, then abused the car who didn’t see him come from the blind spot do nobody any favours.

Car drivers just hate the fact that cycling is quicker than driving some times… From London Circuit to Yowani takes as long on a bike at peak hour as car. And drivers HATE that!

It’s really the overwhelming and undeserved air of smugness that cyclist put on like a coat, that I hate with a passion.

Oh…..the Godwin argument. Here we go again with a super thread in the making.

So I take it that cyclist haters are Nazi’s? Maybe not….

Hitler gave us the Olympic torch relay, the Volkswagon, Kraftwerk (by proxy), Banned vivisection and championed animal rights, was essentially the father of modern rocketry, Unified Germany, provided jobs and opportunities for thousands of people and gave the country hope for a return to glory after the Treaty of Versailles.

Because of him companies like IBM, HUGO BOSS, Bayer, Fanta, Chase Bank and Random House publishing are doing well today.

But you should not compare cyclist haters with Nazi’s, you should compare the cyclists themselves with Nazi’s.

Why do you ask?

Because an average cyclist can finish a race…….

Wow – that was the fastest invocation of Godwin’s Law I think I’ve ever seen!

What about crazy greenie people who hate cars?

Hitler’s 1936 remilitarisation of the Rhineland was conducted using bicycles and the French’s tendency to surrender. So who’s the Nazi now!?!

The Japanese army used bikes to get through Malaya, so those dastardly bike riders were responsible for the Japanese POW camps, and for the atrocity of the attack on the Singapore hospital.

Of course they had cars too, but many more bikes. Just goes to show the type of behaviour you get when bike riders are the majority.

I bet the North Koreans are also into bikes in a big way.

Bin Laden probably rode a bike as a kid.

I’m sure most serial killers probably rode bikes during their formative years.

So… Car-hating cyclists are undercover Mossad agents offing Muslims with Pollonium 210?

F*** me. It’s all rather OTT for a mode of transport selection.

I remember in the comedy ABC show ‘John Safran Race Relations’ where they compared a tonne of everyday objects back to Hitler/Nazi movement. Basically you couldn’t last a day without using objects that related back to Nazi Germany – kind of like 6 degrees of separation.

Ooh, this should be good…

The German Army Jäger (light infantry) battalions each had a bicycle company (Radfahr-Kompanie) at the outbreak of WW2, and additional companies were raised during the war bringing the total to 80 companies, a number of which were formed into eight Radfahr-Bataillonen (bicycle battalions).

So bike riders are partly responsible for the holocaust…

Godwin FTW
