  1. I was always fascinated by Nazi culture. Maybe it was growing up watching Hogan’s Heroes. But by the time I was 10, I was reading the diary of Anne Frank & by the time I was 13, The Rise & Fall of the Third Reich. My freshman year in college, I took a class in Nazi German taught by a Jewish professor who had gotten out “just in time” but had lost most of his family & friends. I used to have boxes of books about Hitler, Nazi culture, WWII, etc. During the 90’s & early 2000’s a combination of factors (DV, mental illness, losing nearly everything) made it necessary to give away almost all of my books … I had nearly 2500 at one time. When I went back to college in 2008, I had to buy books I had previously owned. Oh well.

    But although I read those books a long time ago & took that class many years ago, I do remember. & everything you say about the Nazi next door is true. & it’s also true of the people who weren’t Nazis but didn’t say anything because they no longer could … we are not at that point yet … not officially … but there are many of us who no longer speak of anything “real” to certain people or we no longer speak to those people at all. People with means are leaving. I told my own son to leave. Canada is right across the river. Who knows what could happen before the 2020 election. Who knows what could happen TODAY.

      • Silverapple wrote a really great comment here,
        As a German who had suffered from the Nazis to nearly death as a baby during ww2 and after, I can definitely say, that its the knowing people like silverappe, who definitely have to speak out the truth about the antihuman Racism of the Nazis and of a great part of the white racists in the USA. Once let them off the leach, they are just cold murderers, without any empathy. And history has shown, that white Racists don’t mind Killing people in the high tens of millions.
        The phenomenon is , because the big money in the industry is worldwide closely affiliated to Nazis Ideas. As is proven by large donations from American industrial Leaders – for instance the father of the just died Bush – and greatmany of German industrial leaders, because the Nazis opposed the Russian communism strongly, and wanted it to be fought off the world – they still do.
        So the fight against the Nazis is always a fight against the big money in the industry. And that fight ishighly camouflaged by politicians of the Republicans , and in Europe by Merkel and the whole AfD,by May, Macron and all the other right-wing politicians who have recently won elections in Europe; Although there isnearply nowhere the Idea of communism alive, in Russia an China, we just have One-Party – dictatorial regimes. Even Cuba slowly seperates from communisms ideas. But the Right-Wing-parties over the word are so deep in fighting Communism, that they will not stop. Cause by the fear of Socialism/Communism Politicians could so easyly raid Electors voices, that they simply adhere to their old and proven (Nazis) behavior.
        In the Bone-heads of Ultra-Conservative politicians — trump sure is one of them — there is the belief – and I really mean it, that they can control White Racism. But history has proven themn wrong.
        But boneheads as the are: they don’t lean from history.
        And again: My big complements to SilverappeQueen, for giving us her Inisght. Thank You.
