Jim Bob Duggar, a millionaire and reality TV star of TLC’s series, “19 Kids and Counting,” compared modern day America to the concentration camps of Nazi Germany at the conservative Value Voters Summit. Using the story of a father and daughter’s visit to a Holocaust memorial site to explain to his audience why it was so important for social conservatives to run for office like he had done.
We say, no more Holocaust analogies. It’s disrespectful and offensive for conservative extremists to keep using the Holocaust as a cheap insult for everything they don’t like about the modern world, and we insist that their movement’s public figures be held to a more responsible standard of public discourse.
This is disgusting. When will conservatives learn that the only thing similar to Nazi Germany is Nazi Germany.Click the link for the full quote and PLEASE signal boost. Tired of rich white men suddenly thinking they can tell everyone else what’s best for them.
The only thing you can or should compare genocide to is genocide.
Not politics you disagree with. Not people you don’t like. Not religions you don’t believe in.
It is disrespectful to anyone who has survived genocide, it is disrespectful to their families, it is disrespectful to the families of victims of genocide, and it is disrespectful to the victims of genocide.
You are not literally starving. You are not so depressed. And you most-fucking-definitely are nowhere near living in Nazi Germany.
Sit the fuck down.
