Selective Nazism

2 comments October 2nd, 2007at 07:05am Posted by Eli

Glenn Greenwald had yet another one of his excellent and exasperating posts yesterday, about how Jewish anti-defamation organizations like the Anti-Defamation League and the Simon Wisenthal Center go ballistic every time someone compares Republicans to Nazis or Hitler in any way because it trivializes the magnitude of the Holocaust and Hitler’s evil… but never seem to utter a word when Republicans compare Democrats or progressives to Nazis or Hitler or brownshirts or Gestapo, even though it seems to happen all the time.

Other than the possibility that these organizations might be in the tank for the GOP (No! Unthinkable!), the only possibility that I can think of is that comparing anyone on the left to Nazis is just too ridiculous to worry about, whereas comparing the right to Nazis hits just a little too close to home and needs to be taken seriously. No, they’re not Nazis, not by a long shot – but on the political continuum, they’re a hell of a lot closer to them than we liberals are, and they keep inching closer.

Of course, you’d think that comparing anyone on the left to Nazis would trivialize the Nazi legacy even more, but what do I know – it’s not like I’m Jewish. Oh, wait. Yes, I am, actually. And since I’m a liberal too, I think that makes me a self-hating Jewish Nazi. Or something.
