History's awful lesson about attacking democracy
It is interesting that PBS is running a series on the rise of the Nazis. Do not forget that Adolf Hitler was first elected to the German government and used the Reichstag fire (probably set by the Nazis) as an excuse to seize dictatorial power! Are unsubstantiated claims that the recent election was “stolen” sufficient reason to resist the smooth and orderly transfer of power in this country?
The very low acknowledgement of the recent election results by many Republicans both in an out of office is extremely troubling. One can be a good Republican without supporting the rants of a would-be tyrant!
