No matter how right you are, comparing your opponents to the Nazis is always wrong. That didn't stop Ald. Danny Solis from drawing an unseemly comparison between Arizona and the Third Reich during Wednesdays emotional City Council debate on a resolution to boycott Arizona because of its new illegal immigration law. In the early stages of Nazi Germany, there was a law that identified particular groups of people," Solis said in criticizing the Arizona immigration law. "This law has identified a particular group of people. This law is evil. The resolution, which passed 46-3, was sponsored by four Latino aldermen: George Cardenas, Ariel Reboyras, Ray Suarez and Ricardo Munoz. One by one they condemned the law as an attack on their people, but none used a comparison as incendiary as Solis. Ald. Roberto Maldonado accused Arizona of passing a law to legalize racial profiling, which is a politically correct way of legalizing racial discrimination. And Ald. George Cardenas said Arizonas law has divided the country -- 70 percent of Americans approve, but 80 percent of Hispanics oppose. That opposition led them to pass the symbolic resolution. Were not telling another state what to do, said Ald. Proco Joe Moreno. We are reacting to what another state has done. We are responding to racially discriminatory laws in one of our states. The only three alderman in opposition were James Balcer, Brian Doherty and Michael Zalewski. Balcer represents Bridgeport, which once literally built a wall -- the Dan Ryan Expressway -- to keep out minorities. While noting that 111 immigrants have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, he said that those who have stood in line [to emigrate] must not be jumped over and argued that the boycott would only hurt the poor people in Arizona: the hospitality workers, the maids, the gardeners. Brian Doherty, the Councils only Republican, noted that his parents were immigrants -- from Ireland -- then told the story of a Kenyan gang leader who was arrested 26 times in Chicago after his visa expired, and finally ordered the murder of a rival. I do not believe that we should announce a boycott of a sovereign state for handling problems that are different from ours, Doherty said. Even if we do, we shouldnt call them Nazis.

Considering that the cowardly Latin American stayed out of both World Wars (except Brazil) and have no idea what a real nazi was because they hid behind their borders and refused to fight them.
