Dems outraged over Spicer’s Holocaust remarks
Of course they are. They intend to hogtie the Trump admin so it can’t enact the agenda it was elected to enact, they figure taking a few scalps will do it for them, and so they’re gonna do their level best to get themselves one.
“He was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing,” Spicer said. “He brought them into the Holocaust centers, I understand that. But (not) in the way that Bashar al-Assad used them where he went into towns, dropped them down, into the middle of towns.”
We believe Holocaust centers refers to concentration camps.
That’s because it’s, y’know, obviously fucking true. And is exactly the same sort of well-intentioned misstatement the Libmedia never ONCE called Obama similarly on. But then, they never bothered to call him on his blatant lies, either, instead going out of their way to help cover them up.
As for the rest of Spicer’s statement, there is a reason Nazis and Hitler became synonymous with the term gas chamber. That’s because they pumped hydrogen cyanide gas into the killing rooms packed with Jews, Roma, and others singled out for extermination by Nazi leaders. At concentration camps such as Auschwitz, Mauthausen and Sachsenhausen, Jews were taken from cattle cars and forced into “showers,” where guards released the gas. At the height of deportations, an estimated 6,000 Jews died each day in the Auschwitz gas chambers.
Spicer appears to be trying to limit his definition of chemical weapons to those dropped from planes or fired through cannons, as Assad has been alleged to have done. That sells short the definition in the Chemical Weapons Convention, which took force in 1997.
Here’s the convention’s definition:
And then the serious pretzeling begins:
The Nazis’ hydrogen cyanide meets the first condition and the gas chambers would qualify as a “device” in the second.
There is no mention that chemical weapons are only those used on the battlefield.
But even these guys have to finally admit a little something:
For what it’s worth, the consensus view is that Hitler did not use chemical weapons in battle.
Which is because he, y’know, didn’t. But guess what rating Politi”fact” gave Spicer’s statement anyway on their little libtard “Truth” O Meter. Go on, guess.
Why, “Pants On Fire,” natch. Here’s the actual quote again:
He was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing,” Spicer said. “He brought them into the Holocaust centers, I understand that. But (not) in the way that Bashar al-Assad used them where he went into towns, dropped them down, into the middle of towns.
And that is, in truth, one hundred percent, completely correct, true, and accurate. No reasonable or sane person could possibly quibble with it. It is a plain, simple statement of historical fact, a distinction even the dimmest among us could easily make.
And it earns him a “Pants On Fire” from these Jurassic Media clowns anyway.
Now go ahead and tell me again all about how they aren’t biased, whydon’tcha. And then you can tell me how they aren’t going after the Trump admin absolutely hammer and tongs, in a way they would never have dreamed of doing with Obama…or Hillary.
One can only sit back and admire the balls on these shitweasels. Purest brass, they are, and bigger than Big Ben’s bells.
