letter to the editor:

Don’t trivialize evil with arrogance

The Koch brothers, Charles and David, are perfect examples of the arrogance of inherited money. They are trying to buy this country for the benefit of the rich and privileged by their support of several conservative political organizations.

Their lack of consideration for the rights of the poor and middle class shows a lack of empathy for the humanity of people who are not as privileged as they are.

In their arrogance and ignorance, Republicans love to call President Barack Obama vile names such as Nazi.

Then there is that billionaire, Thomas Perkins, who claims that the rich are being persecuted and compares it to Kristallnacht, the horrors experienced by the Jews in November 1938.

To trivialize the horrors of the Nazis shows Republican stupidity. Many of today’s Republicans were not even alive during WW II, and no one can accuse them of being students of history any more than that they are students of female biology.

Instead of labeling people with terms they don’t understand, Republicans should look within their own ranks when they try to brand someone as evil.
