Spicer Hitler com­ments un­ac­cept­able

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s re­cent com­ments dur­ing Passover re­gard­ing Adolf Hitler, Syr­ian leader Bashar As­sad and poi­son gas were to­tally in­sen­si­tive and in­ex­cus­able (“Sean Spicer: I ‘let the pres­i­dent down’ with Hitler-As­sad com­ments,” Web, April 12).

Hitler’s atro­cious mass gassing of Jews dur­ing the Holo­caust was an evil, anti-Christ-like act that dis­played man’s in­hu­man­ity to man. As­sad’s hor­rific chem­i­cal war­fare and sarin-gas airstrike atroc­i­ties against his own bro­ken, bat­tered and bruised peo­ple were a clear act of pure evil by a gov­ern­ment leader.

Pres­i­dent Trump’s cur­rent course of mass de­por­ta­tion, Mus­lim travel bans, mass can­cel­la­tion of health care for the poor, de­mol­ish­ment of much-needed pro­grams (such as Meals on Wheels, af­ter-school feed­ing and learn­ing ini­tia­tives) are all anti-Christ-like ac­tions that are also un­com­pas­sion­ate and un­ac­cept­able for Amer­ica.
