    Scholar, best selling author, and talk radio host Rabbi Daniel Lapin said the rioting and looting in Ferguson, Mo., over the non-indictment of the police officer who shot Michael Brown were the result of the “dark pathology of liberalism” and, in its “delight in destruction,” echoed the “Kristallnacht in Germany.”
    "When the liberal project, when the dark pathology of liberalism -- not so much a doctrine as a sick and twisted pathology -- manages to strip Judeo-Christian belief out of American society, congratulations guys, welcome to Ferguson, you succeeded,” said Rabbi Lapin on the Dec. 3 Glenn Beck Program.

    Invoking Hitler almost always means you have no real argument to put forth.

    [And I'm shocked, shocked, that it was on the Glenn Beck show.]

    I read Erwin Lutzer's book, HITLER'S CROSS, and remarked to my wife that his description of Germany in the early 30s was scarily typical of our society today.
    This was some 6-8 years ago, so just because a situation is referenced to Hitler et al, does not negate it's validity.
    Knee-jerk reactions are seldom accurate---!!!!

    However, I do realize that this accusation is most likely directed at the poster rather than the post?????

    To equate the removal of Judeo-Christian beliefs with Kristallnacht, the beginning of the Nazi pogrom against the Jews, is invalid and misguided. To say that the rise of Fascism in Germany is equivalent of liberalism in the U.S. is inaccurate.


    No, I realize that RevMitch posts stuff for conversational purposes and doesn't necessarily always agree with the content.
