As in “only” Buchenwald, where a paltry 56,000 or so people lost their lives.
8,483 by gunshot… 1,100 by hanging… roughly 13,500 suffocating or starving in transport, stuffed into train cars like live-stock.
The rest worked to death or expired from typhoid, there bodies stacked in neat little piles.
Don’t believe me?
Here, let me show you the photos…
Why are you looking away?
It’s NO BIG DEAL, right?
It’s ONLY Buchenwald.
I mean, c’mon… they even had a zoo at Buchenwald.
Yeah. Yeah. Betcha didn’t know that?
Right outside the gates that housed the prisoners.
So as many drew their last breath… hoping against hope that someone like Barack Obama’s Great Uncle might show up and save them… they at least got to watch Nazi guards feed cheese and grapes and sweets to the bears.
How “monumental” a liberation could it have been if there were BEARS, right?
Hey, hey that gives me an idea! Maybe you could run an attack ad where you talk about how Senator Obama CLAIMED his family had a hand in freeing the prisoners of Auchwitz, but it was ONLY Buchenwald and then you could show a bunch of the images of the mass graves which were no doubt MUCH smaller.
Here I’ve got some of those images right–
Wait. Wait. Where are you going?
Don’t you want to look?
See if were Treblinka or Dachau I could understand why Senator Obama would mention it, but sweet, charming Buchenwald… what is he ever going on about?
We know that the average voter… Jewish voters specifically… have a grand tradition of rating the camps and only give credit if your family was part of stopping the big three.
This was not one of the big three so…
But, hey, while I have you here… do you really want to make a BIG ASS DEAL about this misstep because every time you bring up Buchenwald it does, in fact, highlight the fact that the Democratic Candidate for President is not only the descendant of crazed fire-breathing muslims from Africa, but also from at least one military serving American who was there to offer water and comfort to the fortunate (can one even use that word) souls who manage to survive a concentration camp.
Even if that camp was ONLY Buchenwald.
