The left calls everyone they disagree with a Nazi (see High School Teacher Compares ‘Make America Great Again’ to Nazis and COMPASSION: ‘Charlie Hebdo’ Magazine Depicts Harvey Victims as Nazis). Really though, it’s all they ever do. Like way back in 2014, when a government official compared a Christian baker not making a cake for a gay wedding to the Holocaust. I wish I was making this up.
Never mind that the baker’s father is a WWII veteran who saw the the horrors of the Holocaust first hand.
In 2014, Colorado Civil Rights Commissioner Diann Rice compared Jack Phillips, a Christian baker who was sued for declining to make a cake for a same-sex ceremony, to perpetrators of the Holocaust. She said:
“I would also like to reiterate what we said in…the last meeting [concerning Jack Phillips]. Freedom of religion and religion has been used to justify all kinds of discrimination throughout history, whether it be slavery, whether it be the Holocaust… I mean, we can list hundreds of situations where freedom of religion has been used to justify discrimination. And to me it is one of the most despicable pieces of rhetoric that people can use – to use their religion to hurt others.”
Well other than what Diann Rice just did: comparing the refusal to bake a cake to genocide. That’s heading my list of “most despicable things” a politician like her has done. We’re talking about a cake here. Not the systematic slaughter of millions of Jews. Not the enslavement of people. Cake.
Little did Rice know, Phillips’ father fought in World War II, and saw many of the Holocaust atrocities for himself. In The Daily Signal’s latest edition of “Underreported,” Phillips recounts learning about the Nazi concentration camps from his father in the years before he passed away, and describes what it was like to hear a government official compare not making a cake for a same-sex wedding to the atrocities committed during the Holocaust.
Comparing not baking a cake to one of the greatest atrocities known to mankind is bad enough.
When the target’s father was one of the people who was there, you may want to go sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done.
Or just think for once. These knee-jerk reactions of calling anyone a Nazi, simply because they displease you, has got to stop. Nazis were responsible for tremendous horror in the last century. To call someone a Nazi dehumanizes them, and “gives permission” to bug spray losers like Antifa to smash their faces in.
This baker didn’t want to bake a cake for Adam and Steve. He didn’t load Adam and Steve, at gunpoint, into a cattle car. He didn’t force Adam and Steve to work to exhaustion, then send Adam and Steve to a gas chamber. He forced Adam and Steve to find another cake baker. Oh the horror of having to jump on Google or Yelp to find an alternative. It’s almost as bad as having experiments performed on you by Josef Mengele.
Also, refusing to bake a cake for religious reasons is exactly what these Muslim bakers did, to nary a peep from the Nazi-insult-slinging left. Just FYI.
