The tale of the Foxman and the gazillion apologies

"Fox News chief apologizes to ADL for ‘Nazi’ remark"  Can you fathom how bizarre this is (leaving aside the bizarre world view of Roger Ailes)?  In the United States, if you use the word 'Nazi' to refer to anybody other than a German in the 1930s and 1940s - which is itself odd, as most Germans at the time weren't members of the Nazi party - there is a guy named Abe Foxman to whom you have to contritely and publicly apologize.  Note that Ailes didn't apologize to the people he called Nazis, just to the people who claim to be offended for having the evil of their vicitmizers watered down!  It is like something out of a fairytale.  Of course, this theater is required so Jews can kill people and steal their land.
