Kim Davis’ lawyer likened her to a Jewish prisoner living under Nazi rule after a judge ordered jail time for Davis, who repeatedly broke the law by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
According to Right Wing Watch, Davis’ attorney, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, appeared on the program “Crosstalk” to defend Davis and asserted she was just trying to do her job – as she sees it. He then likened her to a Jewish person living under Nazi rule.
When host Jim Schneider of VCY America asked why Davis refused to resign, Staver said the county’s residents support her and that “she’d probably be able to win the governor’s seat right now rather than just the clerk of Rowan County. She’s there to do a duty, a job and the job duty was changed.”
Staver continued, “Does that mean that if you’re Christian, don’t apply here; if you’re a Jew, you gotta get — what happened in Nazi Germany, what happened there first, they removed the Jews from government public employment, then they stopped patronizing them in their private businesses, then they continued to stigmatize them, then they were the ‘problems,’ then they killed them.” He added “The fact of the matter is, she has a right to this employment and you don’t lose your constitutional liberties just because you are employed by the government.”
Okay then. Right-wing extremism on display.
