More Moral Equivalence Nonsense from The Left

Today's moral equivalence nonsense comes from a prominent Democrat Senator from Connecticut:
I'm worried that too many people, both in politics and out, don't appreciate the seriousness of the threat to American security and the evil of the enemy that faces us -- more evil or as evil as Nazism and probably more dangerous than the Soviet communists we fought during the long Cold War.
As evil as the Nazis, more dangerous than the Soviet communists, able to leap tall buildings with a single bound - it must be Superterrorist! Seriously, what is it with the Left seeing Nazis everywhere? And this is the man who they wanted to be Vice President in 2000? No wonder they lost!

The Free Republic is on the case, as always, and various lefties are spinning predictably. But this is the best they can do:
Is Ahmadinejad "more evil, or as evil" as Hitler? ... [T]he potential is there, with his holocaust denial and all that...
Hmmm, denying the Holocaust vs. comitting the Holocaust. Morally equivalent? Outside of a few depraved leftists and Islamists, I trust that most of you can figure that one out on your own.

Go Joe
