Sen. Paul Must Denounce Today’s Comparison of Liberals to Nazis by the Tea Party Nation

Listed in: NJDC News, Press Releases

WASHINGTON,  DC- Today, the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) demanded that Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) denounce today’s comparison by the Tea Party Nation of liberals to Nazis in his speech tonight. NJDC Executive Director Aaron Keyak said:

“Tea Party Nation’s comparison of liberals to the Nazis is simply indefensible and invoking the Holocaust in this way is never acceptable. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), who will be speaking for the Tea Party movement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address, must take a firm stance against this kind of offensive language in his speech tonight. In addition, Tea Party Nation should respect the memories of those who perished and cease using similar language in the future.”

Today, the Tea Party Nation published and promoted a blog entitled “State of the Union: Liberals are the new Nazis.”

With this post, Tea Party Nation finds itself among the other Republicans and conservatives listed here who have shamefully invoked the Holocaust to score political points.
