At a Mosque, Bernie Sanders Exploits the Holocaust to Rant Against Republican Rhetoric

The Holocaust, the Nazi’s “final solution” to the “Jewish question” will forever be a black mark upon the history of humanity. More than just murder, it was wholesale slaughter on an industrial scale and it can never be allowed to repeat.

Donald Trump’s proposal, on the other hand, is a proposal aimed at strengthening our national security by temporarily suspending immigration for Muslims entering the country.

See if you can spot the difference between Trump’s proposal and the Holocaust. It should be fairly easy.

Still, despite the fact that Trump’s proposal is rooted in a desire to “circle the wagons” in these times of global terrorism and dedicated jihad, 2016 Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has opted to sully the memory of 6 million murdered Jews by evoking the Holocaust as a political weapon to smear Trump and his proposal.

On Wednesday, the wild-eyed socialist spoke at Washington’s Masjid Muhammad, also known as “the Nation’s Mosque.” He claimed that “demagogues” were being “shameful” in the wake of the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino and Paris and detailed how America has long worked to overcome discrimination.

“Let me begin by stating the obvious: there is enormous anxiety and fear in this country,” Sanders said. “Our people are deeply concerned—justly so—about the threats of international terrorism.”

“It’s no secret that throughout the world and in our own country, we have seen centuries of bigotry and intimidation, sometimes with unspeakable results,” Sanders said before noting the Holocaust, Rwanda and Bosnia as examples.

“Now, at this moment with all of the fears and anxieties people have about terrorism and about the economy, there are demagogues out there: people like Donald Trump, who are once again trying to divide us up,” he said. “They want us to believe that people from Mexico coming into this country are rapists and criminals. They want us to believe that the average Muslim is a terrorist.”

It’s amazing that Sanders, of all people, could attempt to chastise anybody of seeking to divide. The entirety of Sanders’ campaign rests upon the premise of inciting class warfare- pitting the lower class against the middle and upper classes as a means of effecting socialism on a grand scale.

Some might find Trump’s proposals to be unsavory; that’s fine. However, our nation is being ravished by the effects of illegal immigration and our very existence as a free nation is endangered by the strengthening of global terrorism.

Our current president has willfully turned a blind eye to the dangers of radical Islam and have enabled ISIS’ strengthening with his rhetoric and thorough unwillingness to do anything to stop them.

Sanders may love pandering to the victim class, but if he wants to be the next commander-in-chief, he should not be so quick to dismiss Trump’s ideas. The Donald is currently polling in the low 40s in a jam-packed Republican field and his Muslim immigration proposal is favored by the majority of Americans.

If Sanders wants to be taken seriously, he’s got to have more than socialist rhetoric and a willingness to exploit the slaughter of 6 million Jews- especially when Muslim extremism poses a significant danger not only to the West, but Jews around the world and especially Israel.
