While, of course, weaselly denying that he's making any such connection:
Don't you dare point out in polite company that socialized medicine in Germany provided the mechanism for the Holocaust.
Don't do it.
Even though it's undeniably true from a historical standpoint, Barack Obama, the Democratic Party and their accomplices in the Big Media will vilify you, ridicule you and accuse you of minimizing the tragedy of the Holocaust.
But I don't really care if they play that card with me. They've already played the race card. They've already played the Nazi card. They've already played the "extremist" card. Consider me inoculated from the venomous poison of these vipers.
Am I suggesting that socialized medicine of the kind being promoted in America today leads inevitably to holocaust and mass murder?
But I am saying it is a necessary prerequisite for government-directed holocaust and mass murder to occur.
It's also clear that the kind of state-enforced medical rationing and the politicization of medicine observed in Germany before and during Hitler's reign of terror would not be possible without that first step of nationalized health care.
This does not mean Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are little Hitlers in the making. I am not calling them Nazis, though they share some common values and common friends with the German national socialists. I am saying their statist work in the area of so-called "health-care reform" can make it possible for some future American version of Hitler to carry out his most diabolical plans.
