Again, cite links to posts/threads. The search engine on the forum is pretty good and should make it fairly easy to provide.

Wow. One thread with a couple of posts. Seriously. Yawn. Weak sauce.

ETA:
If that's the best example you've got, and I'm guessing it is, then I call bullshit. Marginal at best.

He did no such thing. He equated levels of stupidity. In NO WAY did he equate ideologies.
You do seen to have quite a problem with critical thinking.

It was you who asked me to specify links and failed to specify the quantity, indeed in your post you kept reiterating the statement of 'has someone', some one. Making it seem like you were looking for just one example, and so I gave you one example.

So its okay for me to feel the same way about atheists as I do Stalin? Yes this may be a logical fallacy but so is comparing things to Hitler, Hitler has his own logical fallacy named after him.

Nice try at evasion.
You think we don't know that ?
Germany was a Christian nation. They allowed him to come to power and operate, and do what he did.
No it's not OK.
You have no clue about how many people either of these two people actually murdered.
I believe Russia also was a Christian nation.

Evasion? You're the one who is going off topic here. I was just using them as an example.

IE

Nazis were ovine in their stupidity for following Hitler, Muslims are ovine in their ovine stupidity for following islam (insinuating muslims are the same as nazis).

And Dawkins said NO SUCH thing. The thing he was equating was their stupidity, not their ideology. I repeat. Critical thinking is obviously not your strength.

If he needed to make a dash against their stupidity there was no need to add hitler and nazism in there, secondly one is not stupid merely for their religion.
