Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer was right when she identified the protests that blocked traffic in her capital as political. Actually I thought the existence of all the Trump flags was a big tell. Idaho state Rep. Heather Scott is sharing her view of the “stay-at-home” orders:

A Republican state lawmaker compared Idaho Gov. Brad Little (R) to Adolf Hitler because she said that stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus pandemic are akin to Nazi extermination camps.

During an interview with a Texas podcaster last week, Idaho state Rep. Heather Scott called the economic shutdown “no different than Nazi Germany.”

“And when you have government telling you that your business is essential or non-essential, yours is non-essential and someone else’s is essential, we have a problem there,” Scott explained. “I mean, that’s no different than Nazi Germany where you had government telling people either you were an essential worker or a non-essential worker, and non-essential workers got put on a train.”

Heather, I hate to introduce logic here, but try this test: Go into the bathroom and turn on the shower. If hydrogen cyanide gas comes out you are in a Nazi extermination camp. If water comes out, take a long shower and a nap – it might help you.

At one of these Trump rallies/protests there were signs about haircuts. WTF, people are in the street risking infection because they want a haircut‽ I thought this sort of thinking went out with Disco. In addition to COVID-19 testing, IQ testing wouldn’t be out of line.

Somewhere it is written: “The first person to bring up comparisons to Adolf Hitler and/or Nazi Germany has already lost the argument.”

That would be Godwin’s Law from the wonderful days of usenet groups in the 1990s. Flame wars and erudite nastiness of the first order.

Update: Fluffy, International Kitten of Mystery, would have folded, spindled, and stapled Ms Scott for that comment back in the day.
