    Good. They should emphasize also the rise of Nazi Germany and how the Holocaust came to be, so that people will be able recognize the parallels in the behavior and goals of our own so-called Democratic Party. They should also cover the truly astonishing death counts of Stalin and Mao under Communism.

    Ignorance about the Holocaust is growing, particularly among young people. A survey last year showed that two-thirds of U.S. millennials were not familiar with Auschwitz, the largest Nazi death camp complex

    They should also be required to watch Muslims beheading Infidels on YouTube.
    Or Shiites beheading Sunnis.

    Imagine having such a gross antipathy toward a group of people that you have to deny one of the best-recorded historical events in the 20th century.

    Personally I cannot imagine. Personally, if this was one of the unspoken pillars of my faith, I would have a serious reckoning. And lest you doubt, I have had such reckonings in my life. I wasn't always a born-again Christian.

    It's shameful. It is a thing of shame

    If you're looking for parallels you need to look no further than our current president:
    • Populist - Too many promises to list
    • Nationalist - MAGA
    • Supported violence against enemies - Reporters and protesters
    • Stoked fear of a 5th column - Muslim immigrants
    • Stoked fear of external threat - Illegal immigration
    Caveat: I don't think Trump is Hitler, only that his rise to power echos the path that Hitler used

    When’s the last time you personally heard a Trump supporter call for someone’s obliteration?
    I haven’t.

    U.S. President Donald Trump threatened on Tuesday to obliterate parts of Iran if it attacked “anything American”

    I'm not trying. How is 'obliterate' not obliteration? Please share your superior intellect.
