The one thing that’s been nice about Obama’s presidency is the fact that the Democrats ramped down their Nazi rhetoric. It used to be that you couldn’t open a Leftist web page without hearing that Bush and Cheney were Nazis, and that every Republican policy initiative promised to create a new Holocaust.
Sadly, the impulse to cheapen oneself and the Holocaust in one fell swoop was dormant, not dead. Now that the Republicans have fielded a viable presidential candidate, the Democrats are once again talking about Nazis and Big Lies and Holocausts. Jeff Dunetz, at Yid With Lid, explains just how horrible this tic-like comparison is, insofar as it destroys our ability to understand one of the greatest atrocities in history, even while it degrades our own political discourse.
