Anti-Defamation League

The snowball: Bush like Hitler and 911 like Reichstag

(I doubt that very many visitors to this site will agree with Mr. Foxman on this one. Take some time to write to Mr. Foxman, take a deep breath, and give him the facts: http://www.adl.org/contact_us.asp

First the Rep Keith Ellison video (even though it cuts too soon)

Second: The Anti-Defamation League July 17, 2007
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) called on Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) to retract his comments likening what happened in the aftermath of the burning of the Reichstag in 1933 – the rise of Nazism – to 9/11 and the War on Terror and apologize to the American people.

Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:

Congressman Keith Ellison's comments comparing the rise of Nazism in the aftermath of the burning of the Reichstag to the War on Terror in the aftermath of 9/11 is outrageous and offensive to all Americans. Whatever his views may be on the Administration's response to 9/11 and the conduct of the War on Terrorism, likening it to Hitler's rise to power and Nazism is odious and demeans the victims of 9/11 and the brave American men and women engaged in the War on Terror. Furthermore, it demonstrates a profound lack of understanding about the horrors that Hitler and his Nazi regime perpetrated.

Congressman Ellison should retract his remarks and provide the American people with the apology he owes them.
