  •  Again we aren't talking about equivalencies (1+ / 0-)

    I'm not going to fight your strawmen

    I also call out the knee-jerk equivalences of the U.S. government and fascism...

    In this case the false parallel is far worse because you're talking about a direct and recent human tragedy that affects many people PERSONALLY on this site.

    And he was personally affected by the Holocaust, and the very point he is making is that Jewish people were affected by the Holocaust and BECAUSE of that we should be vigilant against human rights violators... even among our own kind.  

    The lessons from the Holocaust weren't necessarily to fight oppression only in extreme cases like the Nazis, but in also less extreme forms like the Likud led government.  Oppression should be criticized vehemently whenever it shows its ugly head.

    You clearly do not understand the lessons from the Holocaust, and if you had any sense you would listen to our elders like Shalom who actually went through that terrible time instead of ignorantly bashing those poor souls.
