Now, for those who could not understand English - and with the way the NEA and American public schools have performed, there are times I am not surprised - here is the deal.
When Vox Day said this to back up his claim that President Bush was lying:
Not only will it work, but one can easily estimate how long it would take. If it took the Germans less than four years to rid themselves of 6 million Jews, many of whom spoke German and were fully integrated into German society, it couldn't possibly take more than eight years to deport 12 million illegal aliens, many of whom don't speak English and are not integrated into American society.He was offering what, in my eyes, was a tacit endorsement of what the Nazis did. Why else did he phrase it the way he did? Folks, as Rush Limbaugh has famously said, "Words mean things." Why do you think dictionaries exist?
I have no regrets at all about calling Mr. Day out. He is free to think of me as an illiterate, if he cannot deal with the fact that he deservedly received a lot of heat for his comment. Oh, well, small price to pay.
EDIT: Before anyone thinks I wanted the column edited, I will say up front I did not. My objection was to what I viewed as a tacit endorsement of the methods used by Nazi Germany. How it was dealt with was up to WorldNetDaily to decide - and it's between Joe Farah and Vox Day. They are free to write or publish what they wish. I just claim an equal level of freedom to say what I think about what they write or publish.
