Did he just deny the Holocaust?

Post an Apology might soon find himself in an Austrian jail:

Who SHOULD BE Sorry Now?

This idiot, Vox Day, a Christian liberaterian (whatever that is). And all of us should be verrrry careful as the immigration rhetoric gets really scary. Are you proud to be in a country that has columnists citing the ability of the Germans to “get rid of” 6 million Jews as evidence that mass deportation works? OMG.

So, is he saying that mass deportation doesn’t work? Or is he saying that the Holocaust never happened?(!) Doggone it, where did I put that Anti-Defamation League hotline number, I know I have it around here someplace….

Meanwhile, RP means well, but isn’t exactly likely to get what he’s looking for.

I did understand your point that a removal of illegals is possible, but the use of the Holocaust as an example for how it could be done distracts extremely from the point that you were trying to make. Perhaps a better example would have been the annual removal of four million innocent children from their homes to the government schools.

I realize that you probably meant well and am very sure that you are not endorsing another Shoah. Please, for the sake of your own reputation and that of WorldNetDaily, issue an apology that admits that you were foolish to bring up the Holocaust in this case for the simple reason that, well, when you bring up the Holocaust, you have just brought up the Holocaust–and that whatever the grammar of your sentence would lead a robot reader to conclude, you have just connected illegal immigrants with Auschwitz, and for that you apologize.

For the Nth time, I could not care less what illiterates and cretins such as the sort popping up today think about me or anything else. I suspect WND is similarly indifferent. The idea that anyone should apologize for the mere mention of the Holocaust is absurd. I mean, even those Jews who were previously so quick to get their panties in a bunch over my postulating that perhaps medieval anti-semitism was not merely the result of chance took no umbrage over today’s column, presumably because they are capable of reading at a functional level.

The point is simple. President Bush states that something is not possible. There is a very well-known historical example which proves otherwise. Whether one is sexually stimulated by that historical example or enjoys moral preening by condemning it more often and more loudly than his neighbor, it does not change the fact that Dear Jorge is completely wrong.

And, since it seems to have flown right over many moronic heads, I shall belabor the point of today’s column. The reason I am against a border fence is because I oppose strong central governments and the obvious temptation such a fence would present to a strong central government of the sort that is now gestating in America.

Dumber than one would imagine

I’ve never been terribly optimistic about the Left’s ability to read, as most of their political positions tend to indicate that they haven’t done very much, at least not with regards to history and economics.

But apparently today’s column gave numerous double-digit IQs the vapors, as they were unable to ascertain that the IDENTIFICATION, FORCED TRANSPORTATION and MURDER of six million Jews in four years by the National Socialists proves that President Bush was absolutely incorrect – and presumably lying – when he stated that IDENTIFYING and FORCIBLY TRANSPORTING twelve million illegal aliens was not possible.

Quite clearly, it is. As for those who find all mention of the National Socialists or the Holocaust inherently beyond the pale, I am certainly open to hearing any suggestions that similarly prove the case. Has anyone else besides the National Socialists been identifying and transporting millions of people lately? Does anyone else put the lie to Dear Jorge? And if not, do we simply pretend that it never happened and that there are no lessons to be learned from it? Wasn’t the whole point of the Shoah documentaries and the survivor recordings and the Holocaust museums to make sure that no one ever forgot?

Mike writes from AMERIblog:

Too bad you weren’t born in an earlier era, Vox. You’d have done so well in Hitler’s Gestapo.

Yes, I don’t even want the government to build a fence because they’ll surely use it for evil purposes. Quite clearly I’m a big fan of strong central authority.

Jairo writes from Colombia:

Only an ignorant Christian fanatic would cite the Nazi final solution when discussing immigration. Good job redneck.

I don’t think you should be wasting your time commenting on matters beyond your ken when you could be better occupied harvesting coca, Jairo.

JK doesn’t seem to have thought things through:

Did you seriously just compare deporting illegal immigrants from the US to what the Nazis did to the Jews in the 1930’s and 40’s?!?! That was NOT deporting; it was more akin to, say… killing. The Nazis KILLED 6 million Jews, they didn’t deport them. You, sir, are an idiot with no knowledge of history and an extremely limited undertstanding of the role immigrants currently play in this country.

Actually, I compared it to what the National Socialists did between December 1941 and June 1945. Perhaps you’ve never heard of concentration camps – really death camps – such as Dachau and Auschwitz. Before they killed the Jews, the National Socialists had to identify them and transport them. The point, as seems to have escaped you and many other morons, is that it is quite clearly possible to enact deportations on the scale required.

There’s not exactly a shortage of quasi-illiterates at Fark, unsurprisingly. Here’s a pair of examples:

Look at the picture and read the article 10 – 1 this guy was wearing his hitler youth boots while he wrote it… wow… just wow

All this article’s missing is praise for Mussolini’s ability to make the trains run on time.

My favorite, however, is this gem:

Your statements in this article are morally reprehensible. I cannot believe you made this claim:

“If it took the Germans less than four years to rid themselves of 6 million Jews, many of whom spoke German and were fully integrated into German society, it couldn’t possibly take more than eight years to deport 12 million illegal aliens, many of whom don’t speak English and are not integrated into American society.”

What kind of sicko proposes torture, gassing and genocide of illegal aliens? Surely there must be more humane and Christian solutions than this. I did not realize that members of World Net Daily were also Aryans who share the same beliefs as Hitler. Not to mention the fact that it is a completely baseless analogy….The Germans did not put the Jews into concentration camps and mass murder them because they entered the country illegally and tried to gain rights, they did it because of Hitler’s Master Plan to ethnically cleanse the region and leave only the Blonde-haired Blue-eyed Whites which he claimed was the superior race. I was not aware that it was part of Jesus’ teachings to believe in White Power and ethnic cleansing…but maybe your church was different.

You are a bad Christian, a horrendous individual, and an irresponsible journalist. I don’t believe in censorship because of the freedoms we allow in this country, but I do believe in personal responsibility, and putting this kind of trash out there where impressionable Christians may read it is disgusting.
