The following post is from one of New York’s finest bloggers known as Yid With Lid. With the Democrats making their third reference thus far comparing Republicans to Nazis, the emotion with which Lid writes can not be heightened with further commentary. So simply read and help…
How Dare They!!! Why do Democrats keep on cheapening the memory of the Holocaust with inappropriate references to the Holocaust?
Today it was South Carolina Democratic Party chairman Dick Harpootlian who, according to Adam Beam, reporter for South Carolina’s The State newspaper, likened Republican GOP governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina to Eva Braun, the wife of Nazi tyrant Adolph Hitler.
According to Beam:
S.C. Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian, never a loss for a quick quip, tossed a few stinging one-liners at the Wednesday delegation breakfast.
On Gov. Nikki Haley participating in daily news briefings in a basement studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame: ‘She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun.’
This comes on top of Pat Lehman described as the Dean of the Kansas delegation comparing Paul Ryan to Hitler:
Lehman said Republicans, especially vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, are on track to “dismantle Medicare and Medicaid and every other social program, including education.”
She said education is the only route most Americans can use to improve their lives and “the thought of having our public education system basically devastated, I’m really worried about that.”
Lehman said her biggest concern about the election itself is voter-identification laws that Republicans have pushed through in a number of states, including Kansas.
She said the purpose is to suppress the vote, especially among Democratic-leaning constituencies such as elderly voters. And she scorned the Republicans’ contention that the laws are designed to combat voter fraud.
“It’s like Hitler said, if you’re going to tell a lie, tell a big lie, and if you tell it often enough and say it in a loud enough voice, some people are going to believe you,” Lehman said.
… and the chair of the California Democratic Party John Burton comparing Paul Ryan and the GOP to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. A statement that Nancy Pelosi agreed with.
Normally I would say something like Could you imagine what would happen if a Republican called Biden a Nazi? But since its a Democrat smearing a GOP candidate….this is OK.
Or.. Every time idiots like these use a term like Nazi for a political argument he makes it less horrible and the memory of what they did less horrible also. But to be honest I am sick and tired of the Democrats and their fake Holocaust references. So I would like to address the violators personally, and need your help (more on that in a second).
I would like to ask Dick Harpootlian a question…I have many relatives with this on their arm:
Hitler chose that method of identifying his victims because tattooing is prohibited in the Jewish faith. Is this what you meant when you compared Nikki Haley to Eva Braun?
Now this is where you can get involved. Please download the picture above and tweet it to Mr. Harpootlian at the SC Democratic Party @scdp and ask him if this is what he meant.
I would like to ask Pat Lehman the Dean of the Kansas delegation. Hitler did this to many of my relatives:
Is this what you meant when you compared Paul Ryan to Hitler?
Please consider downloading the picture above and tweeting it and the question to Pat. You can reach her at the Kansas Democratic party@kansasdems.
And to California Democratic Party John Burton who left the convention for Root Canal. Do you know that after the Nazi’s gassed their victims they collected their hair, their clothes, glasses, gold teeth and even artificial limbs to be used by the Reich?
When you compared Paul Ryan to Goebbels, did you mean he did horrible things like gassing innocent victims an collecting their gold teeth and artificial limbs?
Please do the same with Burton as with the other two he can be reached at the California Democratic Party @ca_dem.
Why is it so important to ask these Democrats these particular questions? Because if the subject of their Nazi comparison didn’t force people to put tattoos on their arms, crowd them in to death camps where they would suffer torture till they were gassed shot or died some other horrible death, then mutilated their corpses by taking out what can be reused…if they didn’t do any of that, or anything like it…their Nazi reference is not only false and inappropriate, but insensitive to the victims who suffered during the Holocaust and their families.

While trying to honor the famous Polish war hero, Jan Karski, with a Presidential Medal of Freedom, President Obama may have ended up creating a scandal. During the ceremony, the president’s poor choice of words ignited a firestorm of controversy in the nation of Poland.
In reference to a Nazi death camp yesterday, Obama failed to define the Warsaw location as German-operated in occupied Poland, and instead referred to it simply as “a Polish death camp.”
The gaffe leaves the impression that it was Poland who had created and operated the death camp.
While the comment drew little attention here in the States, it made headlines all across Poland, eventually prompting the Polish Foreign Minister to blast Obama, saying that his “ignorance and incompetence” had upstaged an important ceremony.
A report in The Economist explains why Poland takes exception to the reference:
Few things annoy Poles more than being blamed for the crimes committed by the Nazi occupiers of their homeland. For many years, Polish media, diplomats and politicians have tried to persuade outsiders to stop using the phrase “Polish death camps” as a shorthand description of Auschwitz and other exemplars of Nazi brutality and mass murder.
Unfortunately this seems to have escaped Barack Obama’s staff.
Many things escape the Obama administration, but this one seems to have upset an ally to the United States.
Obama must issue an apology to quell the incident that a majority of the Polish media is calling ‘scandalous’.
To think, 78% of the Jewish vote went to Obama-Biden in 2008…

Only Barack Obama! Today the President tried to show he was a friend of the Jews with a beautifully crafted speech Holocaust Museum. Showing his words mean nothing, also today Samantha Power began work today as chair of President Barack Obama’s new Atrocities Prevention Board. If you don’t remember Ms Power she once called for a US force to invade Israel and force through a “peace settlement.” Powers also had some unflattering things to say about about America’s Jewish population during the 2008 campaign
How long do you think it will be before Powers uses that board as tool to de-legitimize Israel?
Power was a foreign policy adviser to the Obama campaign in 2008 when she blamed the Jews for the criticism of then Candidate Obama’s foreign policy platform.
In an interview in 2002, Power suggested that she would advise the President to stage an American ground invasion of Israel in response to recent events involving Palestine and Israel.
Today President Obama spoke at the US Holocaust Museum, his words were pretty but it is his actions that tell the tale.
In her own words Samantha Powers has attacked Israel when it had done no wrong, and blamed the Jews for Obama’s campaign troubles. The appointment of Samantha Power to head up the new Atrocities Prevention Board, which under her tutelage is sure to become a forum for false attacks against Israel, is just one more example of Obama’s actions not matching his words.
