McCain campaign surrogate invokes the Holocaust

Wow, John McCain is now belittling the memory of 6 million Jews to help him win in November. Boy, anything to change the topic from the economy, and John McCain’s role in getting us into this crisis. Interesting, by the way, that this happened right after he picked Sarah Palin, who has a rather troubling record on Jewish issues and anti-Semitism. 

Let’s revisit John McCain’s and Sarah Palin’s records on Jews and anti-Semitism.

First there was McCain supporter Pastor John Hagee, who seemed to have some kind of odd control over McCain – McCain refused to renounce the man’s endorsement – even after Hagee had some rather disturbing things to say about Catholics (they worship a “whore”), about gays (they’re responsible for Katrina), and Jews:

“It was the disobedience and rebellion of the Jews, God’s chosen people, to their covenantal responsibility to serve only the one true God, Jehovah, that gave rise to the opposition and persecution that they experienced beginning in Canaan and continuing to this very day….

..

Then there are John McCain’s friends on the religious right who:

– Think that a Jewish upbringing leads to a life of crime.
– Promote Holocaust revisionism.
– Publicly claim that Jews control Hollywood.
