The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

Solidad O'Brien is hardly a great intellect. As one of thousands of trained hamsters in the main stream media, she is consistently partisan, has a poor grasp of facts associated with any story she covers, and is a clear example of an attractive talking head that is about as far from a professional journalist as possible. But Solidad worked to lower her already pathetic standing even further when she joined the hysteria concerning the current and past practice of separating children from their illegal immigrant parents when those parents are incarcerated, pending a hearing or deportation.

O'Brien tweeted:
Welp, I guess we've put to rest the question: "Nazi Germany: Could it happen here in America?"
In response, a twitter follower, @Ron_Christie, tweeted:
The Holocaust brought about by Nazi Germany resulted in the murder of 6 million Jews in Europe. 2/3 of the Jewish population there. The notion that anything remotely similar is taking place in America today- or to seek moral equivalence - has me sickened beyond words.
If O'Brien's tweet was a one-off, I'd simply laugh it off as abject stupidity masquerading as moral preening. But that's not the case. Dozens (hundreds?) of leftist commentators regularly attack a variety of Trump administration policies with Nazi metaphors. The vacuity of these attacks is obvious, not to mention a reinforcement of Godwin's Law.

What leftist Democrats don't seem to realize is just how offensive their idiotic comparisons of 2018 America to Nazi Germany are.

I am the son of a Holocaust survivor. I grew up without a single member of my mother's family alive in either Europe or the United States—all brutally murdered by the 1940-era Nazis. And Solidad and her soul mates dare to offer up Nazi metaphors to criticize the current leadership of the United States?

Leftists tell me that detaining people who cross our borders illegally, temporarily separating them from their children when they are arrested, housing them, feeding them, providing medical care when required, and ultimately reuniting parents and children without physical harm is Nazi-like?

My mother's immediate and extended family should have been so lucky.
