The Anti-Defamation League on Monday strongly criticized the recent use of Nazi analogies by elected US officials, saying they "have no place in political discourse."
Comparing the US government's inaction in the face of a mounting debt crisis by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R) and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is "highly inappropriate," ADL Director Abraham Foxman said in a press release.
Foxman criticized the two politicians' use of Nazi analogies, "particularly on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day, a time dedicated to memorializing, not trivializing the six million Jews and millions of others who perished at the hands of the Nazis."
Legitimate concerns about the US national debt do not justify "invoking these kinds of Holocaust and Nazi comparisons," he added.
