Fox Business anchor Liz Claman took great exception to Fox Nation’s Lara Logan likening Dr. Anthony Fauci to Josef Mengele, the notorious Nazi doctor known as the “Angel of Death,” who performed some gruesome experiments on Jews at Auschwitz during World War II.
“This is what people say to me: He doesn’t represent science,” Logan said during an appearance last week on Fox News Primetime. “He represents Josef Mengele… the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War in the concentration camps. And I’m talking about people all across the world are saying this! Because the response from COVID. What it has done to countries everywhere. What it has done to civil liberties. The suicide rates. The poverty.”
Claman, who is Jewish, took to Twitter in a series of tweets to recount some of the horrific experiments Mengele was known for to say “ENOUGH” with comparing Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, or anyone else for that matter, to Mengele.
“Hate to ruin you Sun. but facts need to be stated,” Claman said in the first of three tweets. “Nazi Josef Mengele performed experiments on Jewish twins; personally killed 14 twins in one night by injecting their hearts w/chloroform. Performed vivisection without anesthesia, removing hearts and stomachs of victims.
“Nazi Josef Mengele sewed two twins together, back to back, in a crude attempt to create conjoined twins; both children died of gangrene after several days of suffering. Mengele infected one twin w/disease, transfusing the blood of one twin into the other,” she wrote. “Nazi Josef Mengele attempted to change eye color by injecting chemicals into eyes of living subjects, killing those w/heterochromatic eyes so that the eyes could be removed and sent to Berlin for study. Let’s stop w/ANY comparison to Mengele. Dayenu. That’s Hebrew for ENOUGH.”
In an appearance last week on MSNBC, Fauci responded to Logan’s remarks to say, “It’s an insult to all of the people who suffered and died under the Nazi regime in the concentration camp. It’s unconscionable what she said.”
He also said he found it “striking” that Fox News did not response with discipline, “How they can let her say that with no comment and no disciplinary action? I’m astounded by that.”
The liberal outrage machine reacted almost in unison to Logan’s comment, which was made on the second night of Hanukkah, with the American Jewish Committee calling for her to apologize — the organization’s chosen platform and message speaking volumes.
“Holocaust distortion is an attack on Jewish identity and memory, and Logan should apologize immediately,” director Holly Huffnagle told CNN Business. “We also call on her employer Fox to voice their disapproval of her statements. Their silence has been deafening.”
A Twitter user who said they were Jewish responded to Claman to say, “I understand the importance of remembering but I wish I didn’t see your post tonight.”
She countered: “I wish I didn’t have to write it. As a Jew I was raised to know what happened and to speak out against such vile evil, including anyone who tries to diminish it. Again, I’m sorry.”

Logan has thus far taken the high road, as of this writing, opting not to respond online to Claman.
