  • World Net Daily rationalizes a massive deportation program using Nazi logic:

    "Not only will it work, but one can easily estimate how long it would take. If it took the Germans less than four years to rid themselves of 6 million Jews, many of whom spoke German and were fully integrated into German society, it couldn't possibly take more than eight years to deport 12 million illegal aliens, many of whom don't speak English and are not integrated into American society."

    As Digby notes: "Rid themsleves" is an interesting way of putting it, don't you think?
