Jewish Journal chastises ADL, Soros, and Several Jewish politicians for calling conservatives "nazis."


From Jewish Journal…

“There should be absolutely no division when it comes to condemning the use of the Holocaust and Holocaust imagery for domestic political purposes.”
— ADL Statement

It is becoming increasingly common for Jews on the Left to depict Americans on the Right as Nazis and to compare conservative policies to the Holocaust.

Here are a few examples:

Liberal Jewish columnist Frank Rich of The New York Times wrote recently that Tea Partiers had engaged in a “small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht.” The November 1938 Kristallnacht (“Night of the Broken Glass”), with its murdered Jews, broken and vandalized Jewish businesses and homes, and burned-down synagogues, is widely considered to be the opening act of the Holocaust.

This past September, another Jewish liberal, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), referring to Congress not having passed health care legislation, said on the floor of Congress: “I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven’t voted sooner to end this holocaust in America.” In Grayson’s view, 12 percent of Americans not having health insurance constitutes a “holocaust.”

Another liberal Jewish commentator for The New York Times, Linda Greenhouse, likened the situation of illegal immigrants in Arizona to that of the Jews of Nazi-occupied Denmark. As if being deported to Mexico for illegally entering Arizona is comparable to being sent to Auschwitz for being a Danish Jew.

In the same vein, liberal Jewish Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) said that the Arizona anti-immigration law is “akin to Nazi Germany.”

The liberal Jewish columnist of the Boston Globe, Ellen Goodman, now retired, wrote: “Let’s just say that global warming deniers are now on a par with Holocaust deniers.” If Holocaust-deniers are on the same moral and truth-telling level as global warming deniers, then denying the Holocaust is neither evil nor a lie.

Another Jew on the Left, George Soros, said at the Davos conference in 2007, “America needs to follow the policies it has introduced in Germany. We have to go through a certain de-Nazification process.” As Martin Peretz wrote at the time in The New Republic: “He [Soros] believes that the United States is now a Nazi country. Why else would we have to go through a ‘certain de-Nazification process’? I defy anybody to interpret the remark differently.”
