Rabbi Daniel Lapin is the Christian right’s favorite Jewish theocrat. He goes on the air with Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn and many others and says one idiotic thing after another. Here he is on the air with Glenn Beck arguing that liberalism is a “twisted and diseased pathology” that leads to — what else? — Hitler!
My favorite part is when he says the “Judeo-Christian Biblical approach, which generates compassion and empathy.” Oh yes, of course. Compassion and empathy. Like Lapin shows when he rants about evil gay people trying to destroy the world and demands discrimination against them. And remember, he said this to Glenn Beck, who claimed during the debate over Obamcare that empathy leads to Hitler:
Finally — well, he wasn’t the president. He was the chancellor, Hitler, decided that it was the only empathetic thing to do, is to put this child down and put him out of his suffering. It was the beginning of the T4, which led to genocide everywhere. It was the beginning of it. Empathy leads you to very bad decisions many times.
And the Nazi Tourette’s continues. Everything leads to Hitler.
