Romeike v. Hitler
by Marc Hays, homeschooling father of six.
Next Tuesday, April 23, 2013, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, Ohio, will be hearing arguments in the Romeike v. Holder case. The Romeikes have fled Germany and found asylum in the U.S. in order to avoid persecution by German government officials. Based on a 1938 Nazi German law, parents are denied the fundamental human right to educate their children according to the dictates of their religion.
This may be a glowing example of the argumentum ad hitlerium fallacy, but consider the facts. Adolf Hitler will be one of Eric Holder’s witnesses for the prosecution against the Romeikes. This is a human rights contest where the prosecution will posthumously call Adolf Hitler to testify on their behalf whenever German law is invoked, and the German Supreme Court’s upholding of these Nazi laws is the primary witness in Eric Holder’s case against the Romeikes.
Defense counsel, led by Michael Farris, will be quoting international law based on United Nations peace treaties that Germany and the United States have signed. So for all the balderdash that comes out of the UN, this time the good guys actually get to use it in the fight against actual human rights violations. To recap, Eric Holder, representing Barack Obama, is basing his arguments against the Romeikes on Adolf Hitler’s 1938 Nazi law, and Michael Farris is defending their fundamental human rights against Hitler, oops, I meant Holder, by invoking international law that was put in place to keep people like Hitler, Holder, and Obama from trampling on the most basic of human rights.
If you haven’t thanked God for Michael Farris and the HSLDA or prayed for the Romeike family recently, please stop and do that now…
Here’s some links for further study…
Today is “Day Zero” for signing the White House Petition to stop the deportation of the Romeikes. If you haven’t signed it and want to do something on behalf of liberty and the Romeike family, follow this link. This is the last day to sign it.
