Tasteless Jew-Nazi-remark by US Lawmaker

Democrat John Binienda compared lobbyists to wear ID badges to Nazi tattooing of Jews during Holocaust‬‬.

John Binienda should go to Jerusalem, and pay the Holocaust Museum a visit.

He apologized on Thursday.

The Massachusetts state lawmaker regretted  a remark comparing a Republican proposal that would require lobbyists to wear ID badges to the Nazi tattooing of Jews during the Holocaust.

House Republicans last week proposed a set of ethics reforms in response to the recent corruption conviction of former Massachusetts Speaker Salvatore DiMasi and an associate.

Among the proposals was a plan for lobbyists to wear visible identification badges to seek access to House members or staff.

John Binienda, a Democrat from Worcester, told the State House News Service on Wednesday that the ID badges plan was “revolting,” and compared it to Adolf Hitler having Jewish people tattooed in concentration camps.

The lawmaker, chairman of the Massachusetts House Rules Committee, recanted after his comments sparked outrage.

My comment:

To demand a ID-badge on lobbyists inside of Parliaments, is like belling the cat. Not all lawmakers like this for obvious reasons. They do not want their money providers to be exposed.

The US Lawmaker who felt this kind of badges would identify a “Jew” within the system, should be given free ticket to the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem. First after his fresh knowledge about what this genocide is all about, an apology should be announced and accepted. Crocodile tears are not always priceless.

The article of the Skull (gross!!! ) says the ability to comment… it is no longer there…but the scripture I was going to post was I see was exactly the same as Ivar..So I’ll put it here (smile),Mat 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead [men’s] bones, and of all uncleanness.
