I recently read about two Kentucky heroes who belatedly received the French Legion of Honor for their roles on D-Day and defeating Nazi Germany. That same afternoon I saw on TV violence caused by a group of idiots in Charlottesville, Va. marching under the swastika and the KKK using the Confederate flag to proclaim white supremacy.
I am pretty sure those idiots don’t or can’t read, because if they did, or could, they would quickly learn what they are advocating; unfortunately it is not anything new or original. Heroes Dr. Gayle Alexander and Victor Robinson could easily tell them, the Nazis they fought to defeat also proclaimed superiority, Aryan superiority.
Every time we get the latest incarnation of the master race crowd all we get are a bunch of insecure individuals who can only feel secure by proclaiming their non-existent superiority. Simple test: Who was intellectually superior, Albert Einstein or Adolph Hitler? For anyone who answered Hitler, congratulations you are superior. A superior loser. Do not despair. Take off the hood or put down the swastika and pick up a book. Stupidity is curable.
