SS guards dumping bodies into mass grave in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp

I have been watching with increasing dismay, and disgust, at the Trump-hating hordes invoking terms such as “Hitler,” “Nazis” and “concentration camps’ to show their opposition to the Trump Administration. Making absurd and outrageous comparisons shows very sloppy thinking, and it only increases the hysteria that the Democrats are creating about our immigration policy.

Here is a “gem” from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Dummy):

Prof, Alan Dershowtiz calls these false comparisons to death camps and concentration camps a form of holocaust denial.

And, as Joel Pollak points out, it is an insult to Jews and other victims of the Holocaust.

Via Breitbart.

Beltway pundits who dislike President Donald Trump seem to agree that the Holocaust is now fair game when it comes to attacking the administration’s immigration policies.

On Friday, left-wing hosts on MSNBC, such as Joe Scarborough, compared U.S. Border Patrol agents to “Nazis.” The White House objected, but others continued.

Former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele referred to the facilities used to detain and shelter illegal alien children as “concentration camps for kids” and warned that the Trump administration could target the children of U.S. citizens as well….

The Holocaust analogy is deeply offensive to Jews, six million of whom were murdered by the Nazis merely for being Jews. They had not crossed an international border illegally; in many cases they were patriotic citizens of Germany and other nations that collaborated in their murder….

Citing atrocity, falsely, not only makes civil debate impossible, but insults Jews and others who have been the real victims of historic injustice.

    Well, not to mention that it absolutely diminishes the victims, the survivors, and all their descendants to a trivial, argumentative tactic. It’s disgraceful and cheap.

  2. Maynard says:

    Hitler had a big problem with millions of foreigners trying to sneak into Nazi Germany and then fight being deported; isn’t that right? That’s why it’s such a great analogy!

  3. MACVEL says:

    Looks like they want a repeat of the baseball Congress shooting.

    WSJ’s Taranto retweeted this:

    The only time the Nazi comparison doesn’t get invoked these days is when Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah are literally threatening to eradicate the world’s only Jewish state.

    The only similarity can be found in the hatred of the left for anything the
    President and his supporters are trying to do. And the vicious rhetoric on
    twitter & the media proves that they would like to see all of us in those
    very graves.
