We are not like Nazis!

Because electronic anklets placed on immigrants are much more high tech than yellow stars placed on Jews.

Because for this analogy to work we would have to scapegoat the immigrants -- even the immigrants going through legal channels, applying for residency, working hard at crappy jobs. We would have to scapegoat immigrants the way the Nazis scapegoated the Jews...

Because even though Bill O'Reilly said this on his nationally broadcast show two weeks ago, he's not in government, so he doesn't have any real power, right?

Uncontrolled immigration influences salaries, voting patterns, welfare payments, crime, real-estate values and scores of other things. The USA is changing drastically because of immigration, and the politicians have no idea what the unintended consequences of this situation will be, and that is a very, very frightening scenario. --Bill O'Reilly's Talking Points, 2/23/05

PS. cassandra categorically denies that this analogy has anything to do with another statement culled from the very same set of o'reilly's talking points, specifically this one:

The Census Bureau says that, in the last four years, about six million new people, both legal and illegal, have come into this country.

that six million number figure is purely coincidental and i'm sure it has nothing to do with anything at all!
