Don’t come for the Auschwitz Memorial unless it sends for you

Please keep the Holocaust out of your hot takes.

How do you spend your time online? Is it fighting with a museum dedicated to remembering the tragedy and horrors of the Holocaust? No? Well, then you’re doing much better than conservative writer Kurt Schlichter.

After Schlichter compared supporting Barack Obama and John Kerry (who yesterday called Israel’s settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem “a threat to peace”) to being a kapo, the Auschwitz Memorial basically said, “Keep our name out of your mouth.” 

After which Schlichter continued to argue with the keepers of Holocaust history, because once you’ve crossed that line why stop yourself?

Is this as bad as the time someone asked the pope to read the Bible? Anyway, never tweet.
