  1. Nailed it!

    Guess there has to be one in every century. Lucky us … ours is in the White House.

    • Hello Nan. Do you think there will ever come a time when some, just some, that currently wear that symbol of hate come to see it for what it is? Or will the forever claim it was misunderstood and the left made it seem like it was racist? Hugs

      • Maybe. But I wouldn’t bet on it. I think it starts in the home and unless a person happens to be exposed to more critical thinking (defined as the objective analysis of facts to form a judgment) as they mature, that home environment is going to stick with them.

      • In Germany, the symbol was denigrated and made illegal to display.
        People who survived the war pretended it never had anything to do with them personally (Alice Miller wrote about this, I rely on her information) There was a movie a few decades ago – 3, I think – about a high school girl who did a research project on Nazis and the camp in her home town. From the movie, BASED ON real stuff. There was a camp there, her grandmother (I think) was one of the people she interviewed. Grandma told her it was illegal to get too close to the camp but she didn’t care, she’d bake extra bread every week and go throw the extra over the fence. Most of the other residents just acted like they had no clue and got angry when she pushed. The family was threatened, they lost pets….
        So, my prediction is these people will pretend it never happened that way and will push back in a hostile manner if pressed. Sort of like the Tea Party, but without the retreat to a worse party available.

        • Hello MDavis. When I was in Germany in the early 1980’s the joke was you couldn’t find anyone who had supported the Nazis or been a member of the party. Seems everyone was part of the resistance. I wonder if that will be the Republican party members in the future, if the party has a future. Hugs

  2. Yep, that’s about as described in the Miller stuff I read.
