“You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons…I think when you come to sarin gas, he [Hitler] was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing…he [Hitler] brought them into the Holocaust centers.” — Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary

    Spicer’s use of words show his total ignorance of the Holocaust. Frankly, it is outrageous! Is this a reflection of the administration’s views? I hope not, but this is at least the second time that the mass extermination of Jews has been ignored or glossed over in public announcements, and it makes us wonder where this is coming from. Is Spicer getting his information or attitude from Bannon? It seems odd that the President hasn’t expressed himself on this matter. I think no amount of apologies can rectify Spicer’s comments, which equate death camps with “holocaust centers”, whatever they are. It is time for Mr. Spicer to leave.
