Audio: Careless, unscrupulous Nazi comparisons

by Jeremy Hooper

Last month, omnipresent "pro-family" personality Peter LaBarbera suggested that "the first person in a debate to accuse his opponent of being a “Nazi” automatically loses the argument," and intimated that one who does make such comparisons shows the bankruptcy of their agenda. If Pete really means what he says, then it's high time he renounce his side's Brad Dacus.

Brad-DacusBack in October, everyone paying attention to the Prop 8 debate saw video of Mr. Dacus likening the need for Christians to stand against marriage equality with the onetime need of Christians to stand against Adolf Hitler. And now, in a new audio chat with the Concerned Women For America, Dacus again makes Nazi comparisons, this time to address the gays who have supposedly "blacklisted" those poor, "victimized" Prop 8 voters. Listen in:

You keep on demonizing, Mr. Dacus. For we are confident that the vast majority see the obvious, odious fallacy in comparing a long-persecuted suspect class with history's most notorious persecutors. And we're also pretty sure that even a majority of your own team's more moderate members recognize that your words are a considerably liability for the "pro-family" side.

Your thoughts

It really makes my blood boil when these people direct nazi comparisons towards a group that the nazis targeted.

And yet the Catholic Church's position was to remain neutral in WWII, standing aside for the real horrors. Can you spell Hypocrite?
