I can’t remember if you’re allowed to compare things to the Nazis.
I guess we’ll just have to wait for the Jews to tell us if you’re allowed to do this.
Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, arguing that the United States is “at war with radical Islam,” sharply criticized Hillary Rodham Clinton for declining to characterize the perpetrators of the Paris attacks in that way, invoking Nazi Germany to make his point.
“That would be like saying we weren’t at war with Nazis, because we were afraid to offend some Germans who may have been members of the Nazi Party but weren’t violent themselves,” Mr. Rubio said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”
At the Democratic debate on Saturday night, Mrs. Clinton said she was wary of “painting with too broad a brush” while describing Muslims and terrorism.
“I don’t think we’re at war with all Muslims,” she said. “I think we’re at war with jihadists. We are at war with violent extremism. We are at war with people who use their religion for purposes of power and oppression.”
Marco also recently attended a Holocaust rally protesting the gassing of Jews by Hitler.
Hundreds gathered at the Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach to remember a night of terror during which Jews throughout Nazi Germany and Austria were the victims of systematic deadly attacks.
During “Kristallnacht,” also known as the Night of Broken Glass, SA paramilitary forces and German civilians ransacked and demolished Jewish businesses, homes and synagogues in the German Reich. It took place on Nov. 9-10, 1938.
Speakers at Sunday’s event drew eerie similarities between “Kristallnacht” and Friday’s attacks in Paris. “To remember the victims of the bloody assaults in Paris, and to honor the brave citizens of France,” said a speaker.
Florida Sens. Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio were also in attendance.
