Hey Look, Staver and Barber are Godwining Again

According to Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman or Mike Cernovich, and Matt Barber, even giving religious non-profits an exemption from the contraception mandate is — wait for it — just like what Hitler did to the Jews.

That compromise, to Barber and Staver, is nothing short of pure evil and no different than the Nazis forcing people to gas the Jews.

“If you are being forced to pay for the gas in the chamber that is injected into that chamber to kill a Jew, that’s one thing.” Staver said. “On the other hand, if you are required to say ‘you go right, you go left,’ the ones that go to the left, they go to the gas chamber, you don’t have to pay for that, but you have to make the decision to do it, it’s the same thing. Whether I have to exchange a dollar or ten dollars or a thousand dollars to facilitate the death of a human being or whether I have to say ‘I can’t do it, I can’t pull the trigger so therefore don’t make me pull the trigger,’ consequently since I’ve objected now a third party has to pull the trigger. There’s no difference.”

Barber agreed, saying that those who object “are still being forced to be complicit in that abortion homicide,” which is exactly what President Obama wants because he “in large part, lives his life to enable people to kill others.”

Yep. As everyone knows, before Hitler killed off millions of people he first made sure they had access to comprehensive birth control. It’s in all the history books (well, the ones used at Liberty University).

    Hitler also used a concept known as “the big lie”. Americans would never do that.

    To be fair, his inaccuracies and falsehoods and bad faith arguments and logical fallacies aside, he has a point.

    The person in the analogy ‘pulling the trigger’ is the woman who decides to take a contraceptive. The health care company who provides it is analogous to the gun manufacturer. YOU are analogous to a citizen who pays taxes some of which go to subsidise the gun manufacturer. You have no more moral culpability towards what happens to that foetus than I have for some US bomb that drops in Afghanistan. Now granted, that culpability might not be mathematically zero. But it’s also not an amount of responsibility that rises to the level of legal responsibility or harm to me (“oh noes, the government is using my money in a way I don’t like. Harm! HAAAAARRRM!” Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. Or it shouldn’t if we had anything approaching a neutral supreme court).

    Yeah, but is there ever anything that those Leftist ‘Progressives’ ever do that isn’t just like what Hitler did. Damn Communists!

    Would these clowns describe a fire at a lumberyard as: “Unbuilt homes destroyed”?

    I’d like to congratulate Mike Cernovich for making Ed’s list of worst lawyers in America. It’s not easy to beat Orly Taitz to the bottom of the barrel.

    I am to understand that there are actually full grown adult people that think contraception and murder are the same thing?

    They also think actual murder of abortion providers is doing God’s work.

    That’s called a period.

    I’m waiting for the day when it becomes clear that there are no neutral parties.

    Some day in the near future the argument will be:

    Oh the inhumanity. All of that baby-killing birth control travels on publicly financed, maintained, and regulated streets and highways. Gas, title, and tag taxes make us all complicit in the transport of these baby-killing agents.

    “YOU are analogous to a citizen who pays taxes some of which go to subsidise the gun manufacturer.”

    But remember folks, as RWNJs like to say — ‘guns don’t kill people…’
