An open Tubularsock statement to The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Edna Frieberg’s press release on Holocaust Analogies.

 

Tubularsock would say that EVERY holocaust survivor in the U.S should be ON THE FRONT LINES in reminding everyone that when a government starts putting people in “camps” like in Nazi Germany it is a step TOWARD a possible tragic and horrendous outcome.

And to demean people and treat them inhumanly and then blame them is exactly what the Nazi’s did to the Jews, homosexuals and Gypsies, so the analogy isn’t some far fetched idea it is an actual reality. And occurring in the United States RIGHT NOW!

The concentration camps on our Southern Boarder are not some intellectual abstract grammatical debate. They exist NOW!

And just to become clear, attempting to keep from any analogy the term “concentration camps” for fear that some people may have “painful memories” is unfortunate but you have to remember that Jews have not cornered the market on that term!

It is like saying that NOTHING can be compared with the pain and murder of the Jews during WWII because it may cause painful memories. That is the price of admission to preventing having it happen again.

Of ALL the people who should be out and on the vanguard AGAINST any form of government orchestrated camps it should be those who know the horrors of such actions toward groups of people!

It shouldn’t be up to Tubularsock to remind the Holocaust Museum that “in the beginning” Jews didn’t realize what would happen to them and “followed orders” rather than refused to follow the orders at the risk of death.

The difference is one of open resistance and thereby exposing the action to the general population as to what the German Government was doing.

By not saying NO in mass allowed them to be taken away without the advantage of exposure BEFOREHAND and thus mass murder was done without the general German population knowing what was being done.

Unfortunately, Edna Friedbery presents a point of observation so myopic and distorted that one can not find it tenable. What is happening NOW is the same as when Germany STARTED their program. And to intellectualize the warning signs is exactly what many Jews did prior to the tragedy that occurred during WWII.

Remember: The first “camps” were “work camps” and from that the Jews walked into hell!

To wallow around in the pain of the past without making an overt stand against the same beginning atrocities in the present is ONLY GOOD if one’s “victim status” is their life crutch!

That is why if there is any lesson to be taken here is that PUTING PEOPLE INTO CONCENTRATION CAMPS BY ANY GOVERNMENT should be a red flag for those who have witnessed and lived through the possible outcome.

IT IS HAPPENING NOW and that must be recognized. It is the only way to stop its continuance into something far worse.

Tubularsock urges The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum to make a public stand against the Concentration Camps on our Southern Boarder as well as standing against the outrageous treatment being perpetrated upon refugees coming into the United States.

ANY THING LESS IS HYPOCRISY OF YOUR STATED GOALS.
