  •  Trivializing horror. (2+ / 0-)

    I'd love to be able to smack people who make absurd holocaust comparisons upside the head. It is highly offensive and trivializes the horror of the Holocaust. I'm 57 years old and of Jewish heritage, and like most Jews my age, had relatives who "disappeared" in Europe during WWII.

    I suppose it's easy for her to say things like this, being a White US Christian who has never experienced prejudice or discrimination in her life.

    How ironic that these are the same people who so staunchly defend Israel, but can trivialize the systematic slaughter of 6 million Jews.

    •  I was "bullied" in the 6th grade (0+ / 0-)

      by a new girl in our class who organized all the girls she liked into a "club" and made life miserable for those like me she didn't. I later learned that she also made life miserable for those she did — and that the root of her manipulativeness was a toxic home, poisoned by the fact that her parents were Holocaust survivors. (She was born in the late 40s, as all my classmates were).

      People like this don't get the endless horror and repercussions, which have nothing to do with "persecuting" for-profit colleges.

      Jon Husted is a dick.
