On Fox News—where else?—Andrew Napolitano, a senior judicial analyst, said on Jan. 10, “If the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto had had the firepower and the ammunition that the Nazis did, some of Poland might have stayed free and more persons would have survived the Holocaust.” Anthony Polonsky, a professor of Holocaust studies at Brandeis University, questions another comparison of the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, in which about 750 Jews took up arms, killed about 25 Nazis and briefly slowed the deportation of Jews to concentration camps.
Cartoon video of NRA gun nut blasted on Holocaust theory:
“Whether or not the NRA was influenced by his advice, that same year its CEO, Wayne LaPierre, published Guns, Crime, and Freedom, in which he claimed, ‘In Germany, firearm registration helped lead to the holocaust,’ leaving citizens ‘defenseless against tyranny and the wanton slaughter of a whole segment of its population.’” The following year, President George H.W. Bush famously resigned from the NRA after LaPierre attacked federal law enforcement officials as ‘jack-booted government thugs’ who wore ‘Nazi bucket helmets and black storm trooper uniforms.’”
Whatever conclusions one might draw from these conspiracy theories, it is clear they all originate within a sick gun culture with Wayne LaPierre and his band of gun worshippers always at the root of the problem. Unless we get rid of wacky Wayne and his gang of gun nuts, mass shootings will continue, daily shootings will blossom even further with more and more guns on the street, and Americans will be forced to endure the tragedy of gun violence. How many more little children ages 6 and 7 must be massacred to make this point clear?
