Weiner grilled on Reich reference

The Third Reich, that is. Not Robert.

NY Post:

Anthony Weiner has come under intense fire from Jewish leaders for invoking Nazi Germany while criticizing the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk program.

“Last year, more than 700,000 in New York were stopped — the overwhelming majority of them were young men of color. Ninety-seven percent of them did nothing wrong,” Weiner told largely black congregants in Staten Island’s First Central Baptist Church Sunday…

“You could have 1938 Germany, because everyone has to show their papers.”

State Sen. Simcha Felder, who represents largely Orthodox communities in South Brooklyn, slammed Weiner’s remarks…

“Anyone who uses the Holocaust frivolously diminishes the tragedy that occurred. Weiner clearly stepped over the line.”

So what? Anthony Weiner crosses lines all the time. That’s what he does. There used to be a line dividing acceptable behavior from the sort of irresponsible antics that would prevent you from ever holding public office again. You think that’ll keep him from getting elected mayor of NYC?

No way. As long as he keeps yammering the expected liberal bromides, he’s a shoo-in.

I can’t wait! Because up yours, New York. :)
