Hitler Takes A Position on the Latest Tactical Debate "Really This is Your Advocate For Change"

Hitler Takes A Position on the Latest Tactical Debate

"Really This is Your Advocate For Change"

I am not offend by the recent YouTube Clip. We have enough of that in our political debates. However I do know bad taste when I see it. One of this Nations founding pillars is the freedom of Expression. It is one of our protected and inalienable rights. I deeply believe in our Constitution and I am completely against censorship. As Americans, we also have the right to change the channel.

I learned from my Grandfather what it means to fight for our freedom; including the horrors and glory of war. He won the Bronze Star for taking a machine gun nest at the battle of the Bulge. He was also raked by enemy fire. While being removed from the battle field after being shot the frostbite set in. The jeep he was being carried on hit a land mine. He told me he had to "chalk that one up to a bad day".

 

I still have a lasting impression of going to the bakery with my dad as a kid. I was intrigued by the markings on the man's arm who worked at the bakery. Only they weren't the latest tattoos, they were the branding of sorrow, suffering and Socialism. I had the opportunity to talk to my Dad that day and it still has an impact today. The atrocities of that war still linger.

I also view it in bad taste when we compare our elected leaders to Hitler. It only serves to minimize his stain on world history. It is important that we learn and discuss the past. I realize that sometimes art takes forms that I am not smart enough to recognize.

I  will acknowledge the film clip was well done. It is their right to post it. Although it is also our right not to forward the link or tweet it out.
