Ted Cruz's speech voicing his opposition to the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare was "technically not a filibuster" according to CSPAN since he was not delaying action on a bill, but it was still a long speech. Perhaps too long. When you starting comparing your opponent to Nazi appeasers, you probably have run out of intelligent things to say.
B'nai B'rith International has issued the following statement on the subject:
Nazi comparisons are never acceptable. No matter how one feels about this issue, or any issue, invoking Nazi imagery trivializes and undermines the atrocities perpetrated by the Nazi machine.
Nazi references and comparisons dilute the horror of the mass genocide that was the Holocaust.
To compare a U.S. law to anything out of Nazi Germany is unacceptable. We call on Cruz to apologize...more.
