Reader Appreciates Springtime For Hitler Lyrics

But Not Blond Nazi Photo

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Litchfield County Times Letter To The Editor Publi...":

You ask which is more obscene: the blonde Nazi or Kuhne's comments about the synagogue.

The question implies that both are obscene. Why bother parsing degrees of obscenity?

Rabbi Eisenbach raised an excellent question regarding the Nazi "parody": How can anyone reduce this situation to such hateful and lowly terms?

Any thoughts for the good rabbi, Mr. Thibault?

Earlier, you posted the lyrics to Springtime for Hitler. I suppose this was to show that Nazi references can draw a laugh. True enough. Springtime for Hitler is pretty funny. But likening Ms. Kuhne, no matter how odious her views on the synagogue issue may be, to Nazi murderers is not funny at all. It's asinine. It's hateful and lowly. And it degenerates the discourse to a level unworthy of any civil rights movement.

Somehow Martin Luther King Jr. managed to refrain from Nazi-themed "parody" while confronting Bull Connor in Birmingham, Alabama.
