An Indiana anesthesiologist running for a chair on his local school board is under fire after declaring that “all Nazis weren’t ‘bad’” in a Facebook post. He was responding to a question about indoctrination. The question that elicited his comment was, “Can they also teach students that all Nazis are bad?’ “All Nazis weren’t ‘bad’ as you specify. They did horrible things. They were in a group frenzy in both cases you site [sic],” his response reads. “Who is to say if we were both there in the same place and same time, that we wouldn’t have done the same thing.”
Those of you that frequently listen to the show know what I always say when running for office. “Nazis always bad.” You can’t go wrong with remembering that. Unfortunately too many politicians fail to adhere to this golden rule.
All Nazis were bad. All Germans were not bad. All Germans were not part of the Nazi party. The Nazi party committed genocide. Genocide is bad. But… No…genocide is always bad.
I don’t see how one can be tasked with the welfare of our children when they can’t get that right. What scares me is that increasingly we have people that do not see the Nazis as evil speaking publicly about it. Worse still, they think that they can express pro Nazi views and that enough Americans will still vote for them. Maybe even it will get them more votes.
What does that say about us? If we don’t let any of these people ever win an election then it says they were woefully mistaken and they can take their pro-Nazi views back underground where it belongs. If they win elections then we must look in the mirror at what we have become. It then becomes apparent American soldiers died in vain. I don’t believe that to be true.
We will discuss this and more on Tuesday’s show.
