The Donald Trump phenomenon has taught us many things. One of the most notable, the Democrats are absolutely off the rails when it comes to making historical comparisons and clearly they have no grasp whatsoever on the past.
The latest example comes from our favorite socialist Bernie Sanders who tried to make the insane comparison between the Holocaust, where six million Jews were executed by the government, to what is happening to Muslims today.
In the midst of chastising Donald Trump on Saturday for showing intolerance toward Muslims, Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders told an audience here that some of his relatives died in the Holocaust as the result of “a lunatic … stirring up racial hatred.”
“On a personal note, some of you know I’m Jewish,” Sanders said during a town hall meeting here. “My father came to this country at the age of 17 from Poland. He came over, other people in his family did not come over. Those people died. Children died. … So that is in my heart, to see what a lunatic can do by stirring up racial hatred.”
Sanders’s apparent reference to Adolf Hitler directly followed his recollection of Trump’s controversial comments late last year about temporarily banning Muslims from entering the country.
So let me get this straight. The systematic murder of six million innocent people is similar to requesting a temporary halt on Muslim immigration until we can properly vet people who are coming in?
I can’t think of anything more disrespectful to what happened to the Jewish people than this.
It’s absolutely shameful that Bernie gets a pass for fear mongering hate speech like this.
You want to talk about the Holocaust? How about the actual genocide that Muslims are currently unleashing on Christians in the Middle East? Silence on that front from Bernie.
