Dear politicians: Enough with the Nazis.
Since 2008, analogies to Nazis have permeated the American political discourse, pretty much neutering the true historical impact of the systematic extermination of a race.
The latest politician to try to exploit the Nazi analogy is a Tennessee state senator who posted his thought for the day today:
Republicans in Tennessee moved quickly to distance themselves from Stacey Campfield.
Ironically, there are innumerable examples, however, of current-day genocide that actually might make a fair comparison to Nazis. But politicians rarely jump at that opportunity, which is one reason why they continue.
