I did not see the Whale Tales Facebook post comparing New London Mayor Daryl Finizio to Hitler, but I did read Kathleen Mitchell's highly offensive response to it in The Day ("Finizio outraged by Facebook link to Hitler," Jan. 20). It is outrageously inappropriate to compare anyone to Hitler, (unless of course they are a Nazi espousing his philosophy).
Hitler's "oratory skills and skill at manipulating an audience" led to the horrific deaths of millions of Jews as well as countless other people. Hitler's ability to motivate people with his words cannot be separated from his intent.
Her comments were repugnant and so was the post from the anonymous "city employee or board member," who she refuses to name.
