In news this week: It’s not the 1800s or the 1940s, but somehow murderous Nazis and Confederate statues that celebrate slavery still exist. Although the statues were erected in the 1920s and the sixties as an FU to black people and all who believe in equality, some claim the statues are a cherished part of our history. Clearly the latter group has little if any grasp of history. Period.I can’t help but think of Germany, where no statues of Hitler can be found.
Cracked digs into the true history of this country. Nazis and white supremacists have been with us a long time, but ‘ very good people’ have always condemned and viewed them as a hateful aberration. Now, white hate groups are out and proud, because their enabler and fellow racist occupies the highest office in the land. And no, having Ben Carson as a friend, does not get the Donald off the hook.
