On Dec. 30 at 9 a.m., the Frederick County Democratic Central Committee placed the following on its Facebook page: “75 years ago Patriotic Americans went to France to throw out all of the Nazis. Next year all you have to do is go to the polls.”
As a Jewish, black Republican woman, I found this meme disgusting. I have had family members (mine and through marriage) who were either killed in the Holocaust or survived it. For them to equate all Republicans with Nazis is equal to us equating all Democrats with Klan members. Anyone with common sense knows both statements would be equally wrong.
I also found it disgusting that this statement was placed on their page less than 48 hours after the horrific anti-Semitic attack in Monsey, New York. (There was no mention of this event, and as I went through their page there was no greeting for Hanukkah either.)
I am not here to call names or stoop to that level. I am here to say people need to wake up or this hateful rhetoric will consume us all.
