David Goldstein has been pretty whipped up by the Building Industry Association of Washington official who claims environmentalists echo conservationist themes from Nazi Germany. As Goldstein wrote last week at horsesass.org:
As a Jew whose entire extended family in Eastern Europe was exterminated by the Nazis, along with most of the rest of European Jewry, I take personal offense at efforts to diminish Hitler’s historically unparalleled war crimes in the service of rank political partisanship.
He called the BIAW hateful and insane.
What then to make of Goldstein’s own rant this week? He called the builder’s lobby “a bunch of Nazis” and said he suspects the group of setting the fire in Snohomish County arson that burned down homes in the “Street of Dreams” development?
