Someone Please Tell Tony Perkins Putting Cakes In Ovens Isn’t Like Putting Jews In Ovens
The head of the Family Research Council likened forcing Christian bakers to make cakes for gays to forcing Jews into boxcars to be sent to concentration camps.
After Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission unanimously upheld a judge’s finding that a baker unlawfully discriminated against gay customers, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins invited the baker’s attorney, Nicolle Martin of Alliance Defending Freedom, to discuss the case yesterday on “Washington Watch.”
Perkins reacted to the discrimination case by offering a comparison to the Holocaust: “I’m beginning to think, are re-education camps next? When are they going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians?”

Alan, your ‘comparison’ is illogical.

if I’m reading the post correctly, or heard the soundcloud right, it’s Mr. Perkin’s comparison?

It’s not his comparison.

This is what Perkins said, not what Alan said.

FEMA re-education/death/affordable care camps are already set up around the country in what use to be Military Bases. Railroad boxcars are on the tracks and ready to roll!
Now, if ‘they’ can only find a real Christian….

after reading this story it reminded me of a big controversy in my old neighborhood about this eating establishment.

There were no reeducation camps during the Holocaust. The Concentration Camps were places where Jews and others the Nazis deemed undesireable and life unworthy of life were sent to die, not be reeducated. Perkins is confusing Nazi Concentration Camps with Reeducation Camps from fantasy fiction and sci-fi novels. He is an ignorant jackass and his followers are equally deluded….

I watched the D Day ceremonies on tv – too far to drive – and found that everyone there expressed pride in an action taken 70 years ago that should have expelled thinkers like the perkins jerk. Big shot leaders and real people side by side. Other than the expense of the whole shebang in the silly lands of austerity, it was an impressive day.

Tell me why are we giving Tony Perkins any credibility, at all? The man says such crazy things, things that do not even make sense in today’s world. If people, At least those who are thinking people, would just ignore the Tony Perkins, Sarah Palins, Michele Bachmann’s, Ted Cruzs, Paul Ryans, Rick Perrys, Rick Scotts and the rest of the RWNJs, perhaps they would just fade into the sunset.
