Neal Cavuto compares German pilot to Hitler

On his daily TV show on Fox News yesterday, Neal Cavuto talked about the recent tragedy when a German pilot deliberately crashed a plane, killing 150 innocent people. You can read the full text of what Cavuto said here.

This quote is from Cavuto’s speech on his TV show:

Begin quote:

Something turns [killers], changes them, perverts them. But what? When? Why? None of these questions are new we’ve asked them time and again before. About how these otherwise ordinary-looking men going through airport security, would later fly the planes they boarded into buildings. Or how this slightly odd fellow [Hitler], who apparently loved dogs, could happily butcher millions of human beings.

End quote

Hitler and his girlfriend with their dogs

Hitler loved children as well as dogs, but he never had any children of his own

Hitler loved children as well as dogs, but he never had any children of his own

I was  appalled that Cavuto compared a German pilot, who was suffering from mental illness, to Hitler.  Cavuto is suffering from MS, so he should have some sympathy for people who are suffering from a disease.

Hitler was suffering from Parkinson’s disease, but he did not have mental illness, so there is no comparison. Hitler believed that Jews were more likely to suffer from mental problems, so he did not want ethnic Germans to mate with Jews.
