Murder vs Rap Music - Durbin Says There's No Difference

Dick Durbin's latest speech on the Senate floor demonstrates that he has completely gone over the edge. Link.
The Senate's No. 2 Democrat has compared the U.S. military's treatment of a suspected al Qaeda terrorist at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay with the regimes of Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Pol Pot, three of history's most heinous dictators, whose regimes killed millions.

His basis for this statement was an accusation by an FBI agent:
that one al Qaeda suspect was chained to the floor, kept in an extremely cold air-conditioned cell and forced to hear loud rap music.

In all the reports and books I have read concerning the Nazi and Communist death camps, I never learned that they had used air conditioning and rap music as weapons of choice. If Democrats think that this is torture, what name can we give to what really happened in the various death camps, concentration camps and reeducation camps.

For decades, the Democrats had to fight against an image that they were soft on crime and criminals. Dick Durbin just handed on a silver platter the new image that Democrats are soft on terrorism and terrorists. They fall over each other to complain against the treatment of terrorists, but when was the last time you heard any of them have a word to say about the victims of terrorism?
