Rachel Maddow had clips of Nazis

staging a protest in Florida. I responded by making a donation to Michigan's Jewish Holocaust center. If you want to join in this here is a link. https://29862.blackbaudhosting.com/29862/DONATIONS or you could google your local organization and do the same.
PS. I am an atheist so, donating to a religious organization is not something i do under normal circumstances.

1. One could argue that it's a donation to a ethnic organization, if that makes one more comfortable

Thanks for the link, sounds like an excellent use of a donation

4. Well, thanks for the suggestion

but i felt completely comfortable making my donation. Just posted the atheist stuff to emphasize my concern. There is an active thread on here right now discussing whether Judaism is a race or a religion. I consider it a religion.

6. I didn't mean you specifically, just more a 30K foot thing for anyone contemplating :)

I share your atheistic tendencies, so I know what you mean about having something of a reticence ... I'm just saying that shouldn't stop anyone in a case like this, since really it's not a clear-cut donation to a religious organization

2. In my city of Chicago they painted swastikas on a synagogue and smashed window of

some Jewish stores over the weekend. Curious if she mentioned that.

Very unsettling to be Jewish these days.

11. Whoa, I missed that news. UGH.

What the hell is happening! Broken store windows… wild guess that some “superior aryan” just read about krystallnacht in the news about Holocaust Remembrance Day. Here’s hoping there were cameras.

14. Yeah, if you mean the one in DC, it is pretty moving.

It was 1995, and I was there on business. My ex-wife and I took an afternoon and toured the Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Silence. There were people there, but no one was really talking. Everyone instead made their way through the somber displays.

We stood staring down at the shoes. Piles of them. Old, dry, rotted. I thought about the people that wore them, and the way they suffered and died. Children. Women. Men.

When we went back outside, the sun seemed strangely bright in the clear blue sky, as if to somehow assuage the horror of what we had seen in the dim museum. There was a bench and we sat down.

Neither of us felt like breaking the silence, so we just sat for a time, maybe an hour. Then we left.


What is wrong with these people, these American Nazis? How can anyone be so twisted?

13. Nazis consider Klansmen to be amateurs, amateurs...

You’ll never make the grade. Believe me. Ask one too.
