Politics 101: It’s generally a good idea to refrain from referring to your political opponents as NAZIS. Politics 201: NEVER compare conservative blacks to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis in WWII.

Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn has some ‘splainin’ to do to the Jewish community and the black community after his campaign tweeted - and then deleted – several messages urging backers to read an article comparing black Republican voters to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis:

Chicago Sun Times readers were stunned last week to find that writer Neil Steinberg has penned a column comparing black supporters of Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis against their brethren.

“As a general rule, individuals will sell out the interests of their groups in return for personal benefit,” Steinberg wrote in his column, which claimed that Rauner is buying off the black community and its leaders.

“It isn’t just a black thing. Jews collaborated with the Nazis during World War II, helping them to round up their own people in the hopes they’d be the last to go.”

Governor, I’m no campaign manager, but really? Dude, Democrats are already in bad enough shape heading into the November elections. Obviously, your campaign staff wants to make sure that you don’t have to wait up all night for the results.
