NEW YORK, NY – The memories of the Holocaust will always be with us as long as we have politicians who use its horrors to score political points.

Rep. Louie Gohmert, who represents the Texas First District, started off the most recent Holocaust controversy during a speech for the house cameras. Gohmert described one way liberals attack conservatives for their religious and social beliefs, particularly the subject of same-sex marriage, “Now all of a sudden people like me are considered haters, hate mongers… which really is exactly what we’ve seen throughout our history, as going back to the days of the Nazi takeover in Europe.”

MSNBC host Ed Schultz, took exception and tweeted out a revised version of the killing of six million Jews: “Gay people were really the ones being persecuted in Hitler’s Germany.”

Schultz, or someone on his “Ed Show” took down the tweet, but not before conservative websites reported on it, some of them even including a clip from his show.

Memo to all wing nuts, try building your arguments on something other than the ashes of the Holocaust.
