‘Nazi’ metaphors are never appropriate


Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), on Fox News president Roger Ailes saying that NPR is run by “Nazis”:

“Mr. Speaker, I find those words to be very offensive and inappropiate. Relatives of mine were among the millions of Jews and others who died in the Holocaust. At the hands of the Nazis, acts of brutality and mass murder were carried out, the likes of which the world has never seen. If Mr. Ailes is the president of Fox News, and claims to be ‘fair and balanced,’ he should keep his comments to himself. If he wants to be a commentator, then he should do so. But if he wants to pretend to be a so-called ‘fair and balanced’ president of a news organization, then he ought to know better than to utter such hateful words.”
