It seems Mike Huckabee is in some hot water for some abortion comments he made at the Washington Briefing a couple of weeks ago.
“Sometimes we talk about why we’re importing so many people in our work force,” Huckabee said in the speech.
“It might be for the last 35 years, we have aborted more than a million people who would have been in our work force had we not had the holocaust of liberalized abortion under a flawed Supreme Court ruling in 1973,” he explained.
The word “holocaust” was around long before the Hitler’s Jewish Holocaust of the 1940s. It comes from two Greek words “holos” meaning “completely” and “kaustos” referring to burnt sacrifices.
If one sticks to the strict meaning of these two Greek words, despite the fact that some 47 million children have been slaughtered in the last 34 years, “holocaust” might not exactly fit this barbaric practice. However, when you consider that many of these abortions were chemical abortions where the unborn children such as almost happened to Gianna Jessen were burned alive inside their mother’s wombs…
Liberals–and the Anti-Defamation League is composed primarily of liberals–are more likely far more upset that abortion is being identified by Huckabee as the horrific practice that it is, than they are concerned that this reference might slight the horror of Hitler’s Holocaust against the Jews.
Yet liberals seemed to have no problem with applying the term “holocaust” to “nuclear” to talk of a “nuclear holocaust” back in the days when they were trying to fear-monger Ronald Reagan into cow towing to the Soviets.
If anything, using the word “holocaust” in connection with the brutal murder of 47 million innocent children should serve to reinforce, not diminish, the gravity of what the monster Hitler did against the Jewish people in Europe.
Liberals can be pretty selective about their indignation, relying on the trusty “race card” to mask their hypocrisy.
