CBS News: “Congressional candidate Samuel Wurzelbacher – who is better known as ‘Joe The Plumber’ – is defending a controversial campaign video that suggests gun control led to the Holocaust.” And why wouldn’t he? Joe makes an entirely accurate (if brief) connection between disarmament and mass murder. In fact, it’s a fact. So why is this even a story? “National Jewish Democratic Council President and CEO David A. Harris criticized the spot Tuesday and called on Wurzelbacher to apologize. ‘Using the memories of the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust to make a political point is never appropriate, under any circumstances,’ he said in a statement. ‘For Ohio Republican House candidate Samuel Wurzelbacher to imply that these innocent lives were taken because of gun control laws is simply beyond the pale.'” As a Jew I am ashamed and appalled by Harris’ comment. When it comes to never again, gun control is as good a place to start as any.
