Nostradamus said there would be three Antichrists. Napoleon the first and Hitler the second. So OP just might be the third. Sorry I didnt clear that up.

16- You are so ignorant. It's astounding that someone could say something THAT ignorant. Please tell me how Obama is worse than say, Hitler or Napoleon. I'd love to hear it. I understand that you may be against his ideas, but that was beyond ignorant of you.

Being compared to Hitler (in terms of debating skills) is not that bad. How do you think he worked his way up to leader of Nazi Germany? He did it through debate... and finding people stupid enough to carry out his plans.

He was very good at manipulating facts and ideas to his favor, same with Napoleon, except he was better with military strategies instead of debates.

39, did you know napoleon wasnt really that small? he was actually average during those times. One reason some may think he's small is because his personal army known as the Old Guards, were a bunch of handpicked men who are 6 ft tall and with (sometimes) body building bodies. Pretty cool huh? The more you know! :D

Oh and i highly doubt Napoleon is an "anti-christ". He was just a feared general. There are so much more candidates such as Mao, Stalin, and maybe even Osama.

I just wanna know what the debate topic was. And why the teacher would give a one sided debate. OP was on the pro kick a kitten side and still won.

The top ten speeches of all time, in the history of man.. Hitler had 5 of them. You obviously did something right OP. We can all agree here you are good at arguing.

I realised I made a mistake, but I didn't want to be one of those douches who corrects themselves on their comments ;)

Yes this means that you were convincing, which was the point of the exercise I guess? Your teacher should have been cleverer though and not voice a silly opinion like that in front of everyone. What did she expect you to do, argue with the other team point of view? Besides, it’s pretty stupid to put Napoleon and Hitler in the same basket unless she was simply referring to the megalomania of both men.

Did you argue your point that well? Other than the mass genocide, hitler knew how to give a speech and give his point across.

Some of the most warped people are the best speakers. Charisma also tends to go well with that. Besides Hitler, Manson and Bundy knew how to take someone in with talking. Most of our politicians are like that too. Maybe you should look into a career as a lawyer or politician, op. sounds like you got the public speaking and debating side down.

Actually, even though his actions were detestable, Hitler was, without a doubt, the best leader of the 20th century (if not throughout all of history). Think about it. He took a country that had it's military power stripped from it at the end of WWI and in a major economic depression and (within 15/20 years?) raised that country up and stood at the threshold of conquering the entire world. Tell me of any other leader in the history of the world that was able to do that? If it hadn't been for his

Parts of Europe and Russia is not the 'entire world', just saying. Yes, he had his talents, but he wasn't an adequate enough military leader. I'd say Napoleon was better, military wise.

It was a compliment! You convinced them of the point you were debating. So does this make you a master-debater?

I agree, it was (or at least you should take it as a complement) that she told you that. One time in speech class my professor asked us to pick a person who was great at speeches and explain why. I said "Hitler" everyone freaked out and some laughed. But when I explained that I chose him because he was one of the greatest speaking people at that time. How else would he get thousands and millions of people to do what he asked? He was good at his speeches and was very influential. But s

26- I completely agree with you. Whenever that topic comes up in class, I always say hitler and then clarify that I'm not a neo-Nazi. People's emotions get in the way when Hitler's name is said, but in reality, he was very charismatic and knew about to give a good speech. He had horrible plans and such, but I don't think anyone can deny that he knew how to give a speech.

I'm Colonel Angus, pleased to meet you Master Baiter! (Baiter being a last name and master being the title of a bachelor)

So you're charismatic and articulate enough to one day nearly conquer the world? I wish I got compliments like that.

I'd say it's good to know you managed to defend something you disagreed with so well. Conquered the class today, tomorrow the WORLD!
