For what it’s worth, her stupid sentiment was echoed by follow serious person, historian Douglas Brinkley, who also managed to bring the Holocaust into the discussion:

You heard that right. Here it is again:
MSNBC Guest likens capturing January 6th footage to filming Holocaust camps, and says that "it is like December 7th, Pearl Harbor, it is like the 9/11 tragedy." pic.twitter.com/hX7Sf1rDWr

Hey, here’s an idea: let’s not do this. Holocaust comparisons are generally a terrible idea. You’d think an alleged historian would be extra-careful about this sort of thing.
But too often, the temptation to weaponize history overwhelms a sense of basic common sense and decency. And that’s what’s happened with Douglas Brinkley.

Ok, I was having fun earlier by making fun of those that compared the riot to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor but the holocaust? Now I’m legit pissed https://t.co/zQgjw1Juyj

I cannot begin to express how offensive it is to compare a RIOT with the SYSTEMIC MURDER of millions of Jews.
This shouldn't even need to be said. https://t.co/vSlijE5U2E

Can’t believe this has to be said, but it’s also insulting to compare J6 to the Holocaust. https://t.co/UkyVqWq47W

These analogies are reprehensible.

Truly. Not only are they outrageous on their face, but they’re insulting to the victims and survivors of such horrors as Pearl Harbor, the Holocaust, and 9/11.
Regardless of what you think about what happened at the capital, this is down right ridiculous and should be dismissed as such. https://t.co/i797keZkqd
