(WSCR) Here’s a tip when using the Holocaust to make a grander, politically-charged point: don’t.
Just don’t do it – it never, ever ends well.
Former Braves closer John Rocker probably should have taken that advice before he wrote this column for the conservative political site World Net Daily.
In his recent column, Rocker argues the Holocaust wouldn’t have happened if the Jews were armed with guns.
“Mr. Obama wants to severely neuter the Second Amendment and disarm the law-abiding citizens of this nation, a similar act of tyrants throughout the 20th century such as Stalin, Mao and Hitler,” Rocker wrote. “Absolute certainties are a rare thing in this life, but one I think can be collectively agreed upon is the undeniable fact that the Holocaust would have never taken place had the Jewish citizenry of Hitler’s Germany had the right to bear arms and defended themselves with those arms.”
