Producers Notes: Dave is quite passionate today and uses more than his usual share of the “Sailor Language” for which he is so well known. If “bad” words offend you, DO NOT LISTEN. You have been warned. – Producer Henri

In the Proverbs we read:
The first to present his case seems right
Till the other party examines him
Down in Florida, where more than statistically it should, “Duh-ness” seems to reign, a caller to a local Chat Show poured out some of the vilest and hate-filled anti-Semitic tropes and garbage that have ever flown across the airwaves. As they should have, quasi-local Jewish leaders objected. Letters have been written, an article published (which you can read HERE if you can slog your way through the ads and popup’s that the paper in question still hasn’t figured out nobody likes or even reads) and great hoopla made about demands that the Chat Show host MUST apologize or be fired.
The problem here should be obvious, but in the event that the “Duh” factor in Florida is too thick for common sense to penetrate, let’s take a walk through this whole thing, shall we?

I am a different person than I was on Shabbat morning. Hours of reflection, consideration, meditation, and contemplation lead to a different person.
We see the results of the hatred, but do we really see the hatred itself? Do we understand its history? Do we still have hope?
Three-quarters of a century ago, hundreds of thousands of Americans, and millions of others around the globe were sacrificed to defeat fascism and it’s goal of annihilation of Jews. Now, at least in part, the same monstrous evil rises from the ashes and begins the same work. “You cannot compare eleven people to the Holocaust, Dave,” comes the text message.
Actually, you can. And more importantly, you should. The Holocaust did not begin with gas chambers and ovens. It began with one thing and one thing only. The same thing that started the events of Saturday, October 27, 2018, in Pittsburgh.
The. Exact. Same. Thing.
