Huckabee and the Holocaust

Via: The Daily Beast

The contretemps started Saturday, when both Huckabee and Michele Bachmann gave speeches likening the United States’ fiscal future to the Nazi genocide.

Huckabee gave a speech to the National Rifle Association. He spoke of how, at Israel’s Holocaust museum, he looked over his 11-year-old daughter’s shoulder as she wrote in the guest book, “Why didn’t somebody do something?” Then he said, “We cannot afford to be a eneration that leaves our children with nothing but a huge debt and the very erosion of the freedoms that our founders and our fathers died and gave us so valiantly. And that’s why I say, ‘Let there never be a time in this country where some father has to look over his daughter’s shoulder and
see her ask this haunting question: Why didn’t somebody do something?’”

Naturally, the ADL (Anti-Defamation League), which spends a great deal of time fighting those who would minimize or deny the full scope of the Holocaust, wasn’t happy. “It is highly inappropriate to use America’s mounting debt crisis as ANOTHER occasion to invoke Nazis and the Holocaust, particularly on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day, a time dedicated to memorializing, not trivializing, the 6 million Jews and millions of others who perished at the hands of the Nazis,” said Foxman.

“Naturally, the ADL (Anti-Defamation League), . . .”?

How about ANYONE with the minimal amount of knowledge about history (Nazis/genocide), or a ‘sense of proportinality’, should be outraged at the comparisons to the budget deficit or Obama’s Health Care.

 simply, shameful
