They're both irrational statements. Why might somebody like Hitler? Couple of possibilities:

1) They're undereducated and simply don't understand
2) They follow some bizarre devotion to national socialism and racial purity like a religion

Why do fans want to pick Joeckel? Couple of possibilities:

1) They're undereducated and simply don't understand/they don't care enough to actually think about why this is a bad idea
2) They follow some bizarre devotion to True Fanism where the only acceptable options for a starting QB are training camp heroes and backups from other teams. Pretty much a religion.

They're both weak opinions. Ill-supported. Not logically sound. Stupid. They're both stupid opinions.

Sometimes people have opinions that disagree with mine, and sometimes those opinions are really ****ing stupid. People who think Hitler was a great man or that the Chiefs should take Luke Joeckel have opinions that disagree with mine. Those also happen to be really ****ing stupid. It's not intellectually arrogant for me to dismiss them from conversations for spouting that kind of dumbass bullshit. Regardless of what I believe or not, those are two really stupid opinions.

Do you see how this works?
Anytime anyone resorts to using Hitler in an analogy they've hit a new level of stupid.
