Honoring victims of the Holocaust too much for DNC director

A most disgusting revelation about some Democrat staff members has just been reported by the Weekly Standard:
The deputy director of the Democratic National Committee opposed issuing a statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day earlier this year—because then the DNC might have to issue statements commemorating the mass murder in Darfur and Rwanda, too. Gosh, genocide can be such a bother sometimes!

This disturbing episode, which has been exposed in the Wikileaks emails, began when then-DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz asked her staff to prepare a public statement for Holocaust Remembrance Day this past May. Senior communications director Ryan Banfill forwarded Schulz's request to DNC Deputy Director Kate Houghton.

Houghton was plainly annoyed at the prospect of having to, as she put it, "do statements for every Jewish holiday." Banfill attempted to clarify for Houghton that the day in question is not simply one of many "Jewish holidays" but rather an occasion to commemorate genocide. He wrote back: "This is about remembering the Holocaust. Never forget."

But Houghton dug in her heels. "Yup… or Darfur or Armenia or Rwanda or Bosnia (which PS is where my husband served)," she replied. "Does she want us to do one for each other those remembrance days as well?"
It's stunning how rock bottom some liberals can be today. Wasserman-Schultz may be a bad lot and trashed her reputation just recently, but this makes her look tame compared to Houghton. Most utterly disgusting, and exactly why no sane person should vote for them.
