The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) issued a statement Monday condemning a Tweet by David Axelrod, President Barack Obama’s chief campaign strategist, who called campaign ads in Illinois a “Mittzkrieg.”

Axelrod’s full Tweet said: “The Mittzkrieg in Illinois isn’t terribly inspiring, so turnout may lag. But the sheer volume probably has been grindingly effective.”

RJC responded quickly, saying that, “It is disturbing to see President Obama’s top campaign advisor casually throw Nazi imagery around in reference to a Republican candidate for President. Holocaust and Nazi imagery are always inappropriate in the political arena.” The organization also called on Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, “to publicly rebuke Axelrod for his language.”

    Shall we list the countless “blitzkrieg” puns that are used in sports?

    Childish idiots.

    To hear and watch the Obama administration use words best left buried in the 1930’s is not surprising. Many of this administrations members and supporters continue to find reasons to attack the jewish people. So called pastors, the NAACP, blacks like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, Shiela Jackson Lee,the ACLU, the SCLA, find themselves repeatedly attacking those of the jewish faith….and then praising the arabs who fly the spurios palestinan flag are bigots to the core.
    When I recall the bodies of the two jewish boys, found in an earthen dam after Selma I truely wonder at the mind set of black americans. Today the hate against jews yet again raises its ugly face. That face has a french accent, and a black mask.

      What are you talking about? Blacks killed them because they were Jewish?

    -The comments made recently by D. Axelrod regarding Gov. Romney relating to the Holocaust on Twitter are nearly unforgivable. After yesterday mindless killings in France on innocent children, the whole thing is disgraceful. The Jewish community has been through enough! Remember NEVER AGAIN ANYTIME FOREVER! To think President Obama even has David Axelrod in his administration is despicable! The Jewish community has to stand up and prevent these vicious attacks on any candidate where any religion and particularly where Jews, Hitler and the Holocaust into view. The Jews have long fought for freedom of religion along with many other religious groups in this country and around the world and this kind of rehteroric is and will prove to be by the American people intolerable in any political campaign.

      obamanation-liars have no soul… like their “leader”, following hitler’s views, people are to be used and abused and murdered… we are dealing with more danger than the mobs which also came out of Chicago. They, at least, had a code of honor. obamanation does not know the meaning of the word.
