Kerry's moronic Holocaust comparison
This quote - tweeted by Hillary Krieger of JPost - is about as moronic as it gets.
#Kerry: People think about the Holocaust and the 6 million lives lost, well, 2 million lives lost in our life time in Africa. #jpost

Most Africans who have died 'in our lifetime' (a much longer period of time than the six years in which the Holocaust took place) have died of famine. The Obama administration's answer to famine... is to give the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt F-16's.
In Sudan, where Muslims have systemically murdered non-Muslims, the US has largely been silent. In any event, there is no comparison of numbers to the Holocaust, and there is no comparison of torture to the Holocaust.
In Somalia, where the US could have done something in 1993, the Clinton administration backed off.
But the bottom line is that 2 million 'in our lifetime' pales compared to 6 million in six years.
This isn't the first time we've seen a high ranking member of the Obama administration attempt to cheapen the Holocaust. And unfortunately, it probably won't be the last.
