Former MLB pitcher John Rocker, who is now a political columnist for right-wing hub World News Daily, recently wrote an article in defense of the Second Amendment. A perfectly acceptable endeavor, even if some may personally disagree, because the gun control conversation is a big one these days.
But then there’s this paragraph, which manages to liken Obama to Hitler and provide a cure-all for the Holocaust in one fell swoop.
“Mr. Obama wants to severely neuter the Second Amendment and disarm the law-abiding citizens of this nation, a similar act of tyrants throughout the 20th century such as Stalin, Mao and Hitler. Absolute certainties are a rare thing in this life, but one I think can be collectively agreed upon is the undeniable fact that the Holocaust would have never taken place had the Jewish citizenry of Hitler’s Germany had the right to bear arms and defended themselves with those arms.”
John Rocker is speaking, so won’t you listen? You remember him, right?
