One of These Things is Not Like the Other

I’m sick of hearing (OK…reading) people comparing their personal troubles and/or things they’re opposed to, to monster struggles and atrocities.

There’s author Glennon Doyle Melton who claims:
”For me, bulimia, alcoholism, drugs were like being jailed,’’ (source)
Having personal demons, addictions, mental health probs is most def a BIG, fucking, scary-ass deal. I’m in no way discounting that. It is not, however, like being incarcerated. Both are horrible but “being jailed” is not the same as being mentally unwell. Possibly Ms. Melton meant to write “I felt imprisoned by my addiction prone, troubled mind.” OR maybe she just watched Caged one too many times?

The hoosegow is, more often than not, a horror show of a very different stripe than Melton’s “jail.”.

Then there are the Holocaust and Nazi fetishists.

The so-called “Pro-Lifers” who compare abortion to the Holocaust and anyone who’s Pro Choice to Hitler. Yeah, Duggar Spawn, Jessa, I’m lookin’ at you this morning.

Tennessee State Senator and full time feeb, Stacey Campfield sees Obamacare like zo:
“Thought of the day. Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for “train rides” for Jews in the 40s” (source)
NRA fool Scott Bach played the same hand when he attacked New Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop when Fulop, a former marine whose parents survived the Holocaust, took small steps toward greater gun control.
it’s a requirement if you’re going to be a Jersey City mayor you have to, by default, be anti-gun. ~snip~ His grandparents were Holocaust survivors according to Wikipedia. So you’ve got to wonder why he is not getting it. (source)
????????? How they get from points A to B is an absolute mystery to me.

Wall of the New Cemetery in Krakow
Lewis Black invented the term Nazi Tourette’s to describe Glenn Beck’s habit of comparing, seemingly, everyone and every organization he disagrees with to the Nazis. A short list:
  • A mean flight attendant
  • Al Gore
  • Obama
  • The Peace Corp
  • Mike Bloomberg
  • Health Care Reform
  • Media criticism of Tea Partiers
(source and source and source)
The entrance to Auschwitz
David Horowitz, the idiot founder of the Freedom Center, seems to think that criticizing Israel over some of its policies is anti-Semitic.
The alliance between the American left and the Islamo – I don’t call them Islamo-Fascists anymore, they’re Nazis. They preach the same doctrine that the Nazis did, they were allied with the Nazis during the second World War. The destruction of Israel, which is welcomed by you know, like I say normal anti-Semites. But after the Second World War, there was a certain intolerance towards these types of attitudes thanks to the American left which goes right into the White House. Obama is also responsible for this – attacking Israel. (source)
Hard to unpack all the crazy in this. Normal anti-Semites? What? Would that be Frazier Glenn Miller? He also seems wholly unable to grasp the fact that ISIL is a jihadist group whereas the Nazis were a formal political party which rose to power in 1933 when Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany.

The gate at Birkenau
I don’t believe Mister Perkins understands what anti–Semitism actually means. Here, lemme help – it's a noun defined as:
  1. hatred of Jewish people
  2. hostility toward or discrimination against Jews as a religious, ethnic, or racial group
And there’s Tom Perkins who compared the debate over wealth inequality to “Kristallnacht.” No. Rilly. Honest. Tommy boy also thinks that:
You don't get to vote unless you pay a dollar of taxes. But what I really think is, it should be like a corporation. You pay a million dollars in taxes, you get a million votes.
I guess this means that the Trumpster wouldn’t get to vote, huh?

Just to be ultra clear, there is NO fucking moral equivalency between the Holocaust and abortion. Stricter gun control laws and measures is about as far from Auschwitz as you can get. The Affordable Care Act is NOT like Nazi’s putting Jews on trains to their deaths.

Saying one is just like the other is no more than a cheap, lazy, carnival level con.

Also too, Glenn Beck, David Horowitz and Tom Perkins are word-bomb throwing, dangerously manipulative slug shit smears – they are disgraces to the human race.

Just FYI, the new year begins at sundown – here's hoping for a better one. L’shanah Tovah and shit.
