Speak Out

The Marshall Democrat-News invites readers to share their views and questions on any issue. Open discussions are often useful and enlightening. Criticism is acceptable as an important part of public conversations, but we expect everyone to treat others with respect. Experience suggests it is best not to post comments while angry. We reserve the right to delete comments that we think include personal attacks, are disrespectful, threatening, obscene or in other ways objectionable. Anyone who repeatedly violates this policy will be banned from participating in our forums.

If you can't see the parallels between Adolf hitler with his Brownshirts and Donald tRump with his white nationalists I have to assume you were educated in the Marshall schools system, have at least one shortcut to a white nationalist news/web-site on your browser or just haven't been paying attention for at least 2 years, or maybe some revolting combination of several types of ignorance.

I suggest you pick up a book (not published in Texas) and study a little 20th century history. Or just history of European government in general. Then call your highschool history teachers and college professors and thank them for letting you graduate.

News across, you are wearing me out on this nazis thing you keep talking about. I have no clue where the comparison is, and I know you haven't got a clue either, you probably thought it sounded neat so you get alittle excited every time you type it.. Please justified how you draw analogies between the systematic regime of torture, persecution and extermination of the Nazis regime to the party ready to move in the White House.. Please don't try to you just embarrass yourself and put shame to your uncles accomplishments okay mate

"why are you guys doing this[?]"

Some folks asked my Uncle the same question after he came home from the Army with a steel plate in his head, circa World War.

His answer was simple,

"If we don't stand up to the Nazis and the Imperialists then who will?"

He used to say a lot of things like that. He got 2 Silver Stars for his part in fighting the Nazis and the Imperialists (for gallantry in action against an enemy of the United States -- twice). Last time I checked, back in 2010 when I came home to Marshall for a few days, they still mention him and those stars on a wall inside the Court House along with the other specially-decorated heroes from Marshall (and the USA). No, not the beautiful memorial outside, a wall inside the Court House. If you ever want to see it, feel free to have a look -- just ask if you don't see it.

Now the same enemy my Uncle's generation fought so hard to defeat is about to move into the White House.

What a shame America! What a shame!!
