Oh, my. Obama’s pick for Transportation Secretary, Anthony Foxx, is being compared to Nazis:
A chief executive of a Christian womens’ group in America has accused President Barack Obama’s transportation nominee of endorsing a type of thinking which led to the Holocaust. Speaking on Fox news, guest Penny Nance, said she didn’t understand why Anthony Foxx wanted a National Day of Reason as well as a National Day of Prayer.
Mr Nance, who is the chief executive of Concerned Women for America, said ‘dark periods of history had been caused by leaving God out of the equation.’ ‘You know, the Age of Enlightenment and Reason gave way to moral relativism. And moral relativism is what led us all the way down the dark path to the Holocaust.’
Mr Foxx, the mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, and Obama’s pick to head the Department of Transportation issued a proclamation for the National Day Of Reason in his city following the National Day of Prayer on Thursday.
This is the Fox News version of Godwin’s Law. In case you haven’t heard of it, Godwin’s Law holds that as an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1. Foxx was only nominated this week, and we’ve already hit rock bottom. I didn’t think that would happen until the confirmation hearings touched upon transit funding.
