I'm not really a fan of Anderson Cooper. In fact, I think he's kind of arrogant. Tonight, though, he made me somewhat of a fan a little against my will.
He was interviewing one of the moms, Kathleen, from the polygamist compound, and she told him that they were treated "like the Jews were when they were escorted to the German Nazi camps."
Anderson: "You are saying you're being treated like people sent to concentration camps?"
Kathleen: "Yes, we have been treated that way. In a country that professes to be free. In the land of the free and the home of the brave, and we have been persecuted for our religion."
Anderson responds with, "Just for accuracy's sake, do you actually know what happened to the Jews in World War II, because it does not seem to be the same, just factually speaking..."
I probably like him a little more now.
