Amnesty International USA Leaders Aided Kerry
Here, Amnesty tries to defend the "gulag" remark.
Millions of people died in Soviet gulags. How many millions have we killed at Gitmo? Did the prisoners in the Soviet gulags get copies of their religious texts or meals prepared to be acceptable to their religion? This hyperbole, much like the stupid Bush=Hitler rhetoric, is everywhere in modern politics. It's just fucking stupid and it minimizes the suffering and death that people endured under the Soviets and the Nazis. Too many people have a persecution complex where they think they are suffering so greatly now. Give me a break.
