Defeat Nazi Philosophy | Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: While I know anti-Semitism is rampant in the United States, I was shocked by a recent News-Miner letter to the editor openly espousing Nazi philosophy and encouraging people to read it.

Never in my life would I have thought that mainstream Americans would turn to supporting the violence and authoritarianism of Adolf Hitler, having fought a great world war to defeat him and the Nazis. But with most of the WWII generation gone, it seems that later generations either forgot the lessons of that war completely or were so poorly educated that they never learned them in the first place. Anyone with any humanity who has read up on the Holocaust has learned enough to know that Hitler and the Nazis were indeed evil and that we don’t want to normalize what they had to say. Yet thanks to following Trump, who shouted his racist views long before the 2016 election, far-right Republicans are now endorsing Nazism, even putting their names in public. I am horrified.
