During an appearance Monday on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live,” Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz used the Holocaust to advocate for attacking Syria, saying “the concept of never again, has to mean something.”

“What happens if the president doesn’t get a positive vote in the House of Representatives? What if he gets rejected there, as David Cameron did in Britain?” Wolf Blitzer asked.

Wasserman Schultz responded that she was “confident” the House and Senate will “authorize the president to engage in a limited targeted strike that ensures that our national security interests are protected… that he respond to atrocities, and exercise the moral leadership that the United States has always led with.”

To drive the point, she added:

“For me as a mother, to see that searing image of babies lined up, murdered by their own government, innocent children. I mean, as a Jew, Wolf, I have to tell you, as a member of Congress who represents one of the largest Holocaust survivor populations in the country, to me, the concept of never again, has to mean something.

And the United States, morally, cannot turn the other cheek. Too many leaders of ours have regretted that decision.”
