Minister Compares Burning Diseased Pigs To Auschwitz

5

A Romanian minister has shockingly compared the incineration of dead pigs infected with swine fever to the slaughter of Jews at Auschwitz, according to reports.

Agriculture Minister Petre Daea made his crass comment during a TV interview as he discussed measures to stem the spread of the disease at a breeding farm in southern Romania where more than 44,500 pigs were killed.

“There is no antidote, there is no vaccine, no medicine, the only way is to sacrifice them. The pigs are incinerated, it’s a terrible job. It’s like Auschwitz in there,” he said Tuesday, referring to the highly contagious disease that causes fatal hemorrhages in pigs, according to Balkan Insight.

The Israeli embassy in the Romanian capital of Bucharest expressed the Jewish state’s revulsion at Daea’s words.

“We hope … that such an association was made by Minister Daea because of the lack of in-depth information on what the Holocaust and Auschwitz are, without the intention of dishonoring the memory of millions of victims,” the embassy said in a statement.

Daea apologized Thursday.

“I respect all the members of the Jewish community and clarify that I only wished to describe the difficult situation facing Romanian breeders due to the African swine fever,” the social Democrat said in a statement.

  1. Pigs might be the arch epitome of a non kosher animal, but only a brute thinks less of them as living beings just because they’re not on the Torah menu. In fact pigs are very intelligent creatures, capable of emotional depth, just like dogs which disgustingly enough are raised as food in parts of Asia. And the conditions of factory farms do seem as ruthless as Hitler to be frank. What fueled the Holocaust but a blind, discompassionate abjuration of the easily trounced Other?

  2. It must indeed be a disgusting and difficult job and I sympathize with workers, but the agriculture minister’s words are unacceptable, or perhaps they are revealing what most people in certain countries truly think.

  3. “A Romanian minister has shockingly compared the incineration of dead pigs infected with swine fever to the slaughter of Jews at Auschwitz”

    What do you expect from a goy dog who’s mind is so screwed up he worships a dead Jew on a stick wearing a diaper!
