Joe the Plumber has gotten a hugely negative response to his campaign commercial that claims that gun control led to the Armenian genocide and to the Holocaust. So he’s just decided that the right response is to tell an easily disproven lie about it:
“All I said was gun control was implemented, and then governments proceeded to violate human rights,” Mr. Wurzelbacher said. “Nowhere did I mention the Holocaust or was I even talking about it.”
Really? Here’s the video. It says:
“In 1939, Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, 6 million Jews and 7 million others, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated.”
Right, Joe. How could anyone think you were talking about the Holocaust?
