Quote of the day 20th March 2023

"THIS HAS TO STOP. THIS *HAS* TO STOP. YOU CAN TAKE ISSUE WITH THE GOVERNMENT’S IMMIGRATION AND ASYLUM POLICIES WITHOUT COMPARING THEM TO AUSCHWITZ BIRKENAU!!!"

(Daniel Sugarman, who is Public Affairs Director of the Board of Deputies of British Jews although his tweet was in a personal capacity and not on behalf of the Board of Deputies, responds to tweets with a photoshopped image of Suella Braverman.

The original image shows her with two Rwandans, and the all three of them are laughing and obviously sharing a joke. In the photoshopped versions the two Rwandans have been cropped out and the Home Secretary has been photoshopped onto various misleading or highly inappropriate backgrounds, including the Auschswitz-Birkenau extermination camp.)

Haha! You can take issue with them - but not on this blog, eh?

You can take issue with them on this blog. And usually faster than I was able to manage this time. As I explained in my apology for the delay releasing comments a couple of days ago, I have been ridiculously busy the last couple of weeks.

But more importantly, the above comment misses the point big time.

It should not be difficult to understand why many Jewish people like Daniel would be particularly unhappy about people diluting the shock and horror we should all feel at the horrors of the Holocaust by comparing anything they disagree with to Auschwitz.

And that applies whether it is Steve Bray doing it or Andrew Bridgen, or anyone else.
