"WHITE NATIONALISTS DWARFED BY COUNTER PROTESTERS IN WASHINGTON" -A headline in The New York Times.
I could not have suffered greater shock when the white supremacists marched on Charlottesville a year ago, Those lines pf torch-bearing men chanting "Jews will never replace us," evoked memories of the great swastika-waving conclaves of Nazis and the madman Adolph Hitler, screaming into microphones, "Today Germany, tomorrow the World."
Had it not been for millions of dedicated antifascists, he and those who believed that the world was meant to be inherited only by those with "Aryan" genes (whatever that means), might very well have won the Great War (1913-1946). There was actually only one World War with a brief respite in the middle—a time when all of the countries rebuilt their stores of explosives and young cannon- fodder.
I experienced many of the ramifications of that insanity in my lifetime.
Within 10 years, Hitler and his hordes of followers—over 8-million by the end of WWII, had brought about the deaths of 73-million victims, including those who suffered and died in the horrific holocaust. That any person would wish to join with the Nazi killers of Auschwitz and scores of other death camps, is beyond human comprehension.
We should be forever as grateful for the Patriots who were revolted by the vanguards of hate at Charlottesville and Washington as we are for the Minutemen of Concord.
God save America.
