Car Safety Is Like Auschwitz, Says Republican

In reaction to Jim’s article about Ralph Nader defending the Bill of Rights yesterday, a Republican blogger from Ohio calls Irregular Times a “liberal kook website”.

Who’s the kook? This same blogger calls Ralph Nader a “car safety nazi”.

A car safety nazi? Pardon, but was Adolph Hitler known for imposing car safety regulations? Was that the trouble with Nazi Germany?

Only a right wing kook could equate a concern for automotive safety with the horrors of Auschwitz.

The truth is that all human beings are kooky in some way. As for myself, I’d rather be a liberal kook, supporting freedom and equality for all human beings, than a right wing kook who thinks that the Nazi holocaust was equivalent to a citizen campaign for better safety belts.
