Taxes – not at ALL like the Holocaust

Dear “tea party” anti-tax activists:

Taxes are not like the Holocaust.  They’re not even like war crimes.  They’re taxes – part of the price we pay to live in a country where we are ensured democratic transition of power, education, and a basic safety-net if things go wrong for us or our families.  Those are all things that people in, say, Darfur, don’t have right now.

So, it is not OK to have signs like this at your rallies:

Unacceptable sign #1

Unacceptable sign #1 via Opinio Juris

Uacceptable sign #2

Uacceptable sign #2 via SFGate

Unacceptable sign #3

Unacceptable sign #3 via Phoenix New Times

“Obama: Hitler gave good speeches, too” (via SFGate)

Yes, I know that the far left did their fair share of this for Bush.  That doesn’t make it OK.  Nothing make signs like these OK.

Sincerely,

Martha
