Like Jews In Nazi Germany...
Jews, Jews, Jews. Perpetual antagonists unless a moral equivalency can be drawn between the holocaust and that of politically correct "victims" which conveniences the leftist agenda. These days every "victim" of a perceived offense compares to the plight of Jews under Nazi Germany - Muslims, Christians, immigrants, Palestinians, politicians, animals...
Every victim is like "Jews in Nazi Germany", except of course, the actual Jewish victims of Nazi Germany!
But one California attorney is now comparing child molesters to the victims of the holocaust. Not that I'm comparing those listed above with child molesters, but "Like Jews in Nazi Germany" seems to have become an all-purpose gauge of victimization.
From NBC Los Angeles (emphasis mine):
Registered sex offenders are also required to post signs with on their front doors reading, in 1-inch letters, "No candy or treats at this residence." Those offenders visible to the public on the state's Megan's Law website and convicted of a crime against a child are required to post the sign.
"We consider that to be a violation of the U.S. Constitution," [Attorney Janice] Bellucci said Tuesday.
The ordinance both imposes "forced speech" – the sign – and restricts speech by prohibiting Halloween celebrations, she said.
"It's similar to Jews in Nazi Germany who had to wear the yellow star on their clothing," Bellucci said.
No, it isn't similar. It isn't even remotely close. Jews in Nazi Germany were innocent people persecuted solely because of their ethnicity and religion. Child molesters are criminals who prey on the weakest and most innocent in our society.
Have we really sunk so low that violating a child molester's "right" to give children candy compares with being cremated alive?
