Concentration camps? Hardly.

There’s no denying Peter DiGaudio has an axe to grind with liberals. What’s more, he seems to be unwilling – or pathologically unable – to pass up any opportunity to make a mountain out of a molehill, at least when it comes to liberals. Case in point is one of Peter’s recent entries accusing Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings of submitting legislation to create “concentration camps” (Peter’s own words, not mine). Apparently, Peter has his undies in a bunch because Rep. Hastings had the nerve to submit legislation which would create 6 national emergency centers on military installations. As is clearly stated in the legislation, the national emergency centers would be used to provide temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster, as well as to provide centralized locations for the purposes of training and ensuring the coordination of Federal, State, and local first responders, and finally to provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations.

Curiously, while Peter used the terms “concentration camps” and “detention camps” to refer to the national emergency centers, I couldn’t find any mention of either phrase within the legislation itself, and trust me, I looked. Now putting aside Peter’s asinine assertion that these national emergency centers are akin to concentration camps, I also take issue with Peter referring to Rep. Hastings constituents as riders of “the Short Bus of Life.” You few loyal readers probably know why I’d take issue with Peter’s choice of language there, and I think it’s despicable that he’d assert that individuals are mentally challenged simply because he doesn’t like their elected representative.

Yeah, Peter DiGaudio, he’s a class act alright…

  1. You’ll note he closed comments on that post where he was duped by a parody–without correcting himself–rather than allow for the possibilty he screwed up.
