DNC: Anti-Refugee Rhetoric Is Same As Turning Away Jews in 1939


“We have seen this movie before. In May 1939, the SS St. Louis left Hamburg, Germany carrying more than 900 passengers, nearly all of them Jewish and seeking refuge in the United States. Our country turned them away, and many who were sent back to mainland Europe were killed in the Holocaust. Instead of learning from that mistake – Republican candidates and politicians were eager to repeat it.”

What is missing is that it was a democrat president who did it and the Jews who wanted to come did not have ties to terrorism.


To say nothing of the fact that they ones Obama wants to let in are not proportionately represented by Christians from the region, who are the favored target of the terrorists.
