  1. I am an African American and I am equally outraged at the comments of Lt. Gov. Steele. Although I live in Brentwood, CA., I have decided to send a campaign check to Rep. Cardin.
    All people of good will should expose every attempt to marginalize the holocaust as well as slavery by unprincipled politicians such as Steele..

  2. George: Thanks for your comment. I couldn’t agree with you more. I hope along with your check you’ll add a note explaining why you sent it. I’m sure the Cardin campaign would like to know that not only Jews, but African-Americans as well are upset with Steele’s misuse of Jewish and African-American history.

    BTW, I used to live in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles & periodically my mail would be mistakenly rerouted to Brentwood, CA (hundreds of miles away). I’ve heard you live in beautiful country though–isn’t it the foothills of the Sierras?

  3. Richard,
    Republicans have never met a right to life issue they didn’t love, nor a justification to use the Holocaust to prop it up. Playing the slavery card in the same speech has to be a new low. It never ceases to amaze me how insensitive and cruel people can be in the name of Christianity and I don’t limit it there.I think we will soon be seeing a moral crisis among the self appointed “most high” as fertility clinics, and the offsping that pass their time chillin’ , become a flash point among the far right. The question will shift, sadly, from stem cell research, to the fundamental questions of Roe/Wade.
    BTW, Please excuse any spelling errors. This is the tiniest print!

  4. Thanks for reporting this – it was the first I had heard of it. Besides dishonoring the pain of millions of people, it has the opposite rhetoric effect intended. It’s obvious that he was ineptly trying to reach out to commong ground. Instead, the result is to highlight his lack of civility, sense of perspective, and empathy.

  5. Democracy requires that we have the freedom to support candidaftes who most closely mirror our deepest convictions. There were after all, in the early days of Hitler’s rise to power, Jews who thought that he would bring stability to Germany and that external world forces would make him moderate his views. We all know now how wrong they were. That being said, i am amazed and saddened by the fact that we have Jews. who in my opinion, mainly for financial self-interest and a totally misplaced belief in the unwavering “American support for Israel” touted by Republicans politicos and the Christian Right, continue to support Republicans, most of whom, when tested, will reveal deeply ingrained anti-Jewsih tendencies. Who was it who said ” he who does not learn from history is condemned to relive it”?
