Per Wikipedia, Jewish police were “the auxiliary police units organized in the Jewish ghettos of Europe by local Judenrat councils under orders of occupying German Nazis … They were used by the Germans primarily for securing the deportation of other Jews to the concentration camps.”

If you are a low-income Republican, Roseanne Barr considers you the moral equivalent of a Jew who oversaw the deportation of other Jews to gas chambers.

If you are a well-to-do Republican, she presumably considers you the moral equivalent of Nazis. (Barr does not say this, but it’s clearly implied.)

The comparisons are absurd and outrageous — par for the course for Roseanne Barr.
