Leonard Pitts Jr.’s Jan. 13 column, Standing up to the language of hatred, claims he hates to compare events to the Holocaust or slavery because it only trivializes them.
He then brings up the similarities between the rise of Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump, going as far as describing the ejection of protesters and hecklers as their being removed violently, a description at which all Jews should be appalled. He goes on to name the only true example of a peaceful protest, Rose Hamid, who looked quite healthy after being removed.
Trump is not my candidate, and I don’t believe he will be the Republican nominee as we get closer to big-boy time.
But if I was able to put up with the American apologist’s weak foreign-policy leadership for the past seven years, then he should be able to put up with a Trump candidacy without trying to persuade those who would support him that good people would not.
