I’ve kept this blog free of politics with the exception of library funding issues and my recent announcement of non-partisan candidacy for Watertown Township trustee
— the latter has been kept to a bare minimum. However, I recently spotted this image making its rounds via Facebook (a friend shared the image via the page, Being Liberal
) and I couldn’t resist sharing. I think it’s a great point…
I find it not only disgusting and disturbing that someone could even make a comparison, but feel that those who make such statements are minimizing the atrocities committed by the Third Reich. Regardless of your political affiliations, there is simply no comparison and the subject is certainly nothing to joke about…
Further (and the main reason for sharing this), anyone that compares a U.S. President to the infamous dictator with a toothbrush mustache smacks of ignorance and cannot be very knowledgeable in 20th century history. I strongly encourage them to visit their local public library (it’s free) and do some reading up in the 940s. While they’re in the 940s, they should also read up on Stalin — who murdered an estimated 20 million people. Once again, there is no comparison.
Use Libraries and Learn Stuff.
