'Protecting children' ...by comparing them to Hitler Youth

by Jeremy Hooper

Since the election, we've noticed a frightening upswing in the far-right's willingness to trot out Nazi comparisons to make their partisan points. But for the most part these offensive links have been confined to President Obama and his administration, all of whom (a) knew what they were getting into when they signed up for public life, and (b) are old enough to take it. Because seriously, who would be cold enough to bring underage children or teens into these rhetorical shenanigans?

Meet Ms. Cold Enough, WorldNetDaily columnist Judith Reisman:

Such American classroom indoctrination is now found in "hate" and sexual diversity training and in 3,500 nationwide Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) school clubs. Under color of a "Safe Schools Movement" battling alleged "bullying" of so-called "gay" children (K-12), some see GLSEN as a modern version of the Hitler Youth and as preparing the ground for a larger, sweeping, schoolroom Youth Brigade.
...
Both the GLSEN youth and the Hitler Youth were trained to be revolutionary leaders of the brave new world order. GLSEN school clubs and their teacher sponsor/trainers are now funded by major corporations and by some state funds. GLESN's Day of Silence and "GAY ALLY!" pledge cards for kindergartners and other children are direct assaults on traditional parental, American values.

World Net Daily Columnist Compares GLSEN, Day of Silence Participants to Hitler Youth [GLSEN]

Supporting equality for LGBT people / Supporting history's most notorious genocidal dictator. Do we really need to waste any words showing you the flaw in that almost unbelievable comparison? We think notsee.

The only fair comparison between gay and gay-supportive teens and Hitler Youth involves their potential participation in a production of Cabaret:

Everything else is disturbing, disgusting, and deeply disingenuous for a movement that claims to have the interests of children at heart!

Jeremy - that is a bone chilling scene but starts out so innocently - we can just hope it never comes to that again.

"Because seriously, who would be cold enough to bring underage children or teens into these rhetorical shenanigans?"

Seriously? This is what the "pro-family" side has always done - their main talking-point has always been about Homosexuals preying on America's children - Judith Reisman's column show just how desperate they have become.

Every time they start comparing us to Nazis, we need to remind the world that we were targeted by the Nazis.

Someone obviously wasn't paying attention in U.S. History.
