The problem is that even in liberal circles people are scared to teach the Holocaust. I am a giant WW2 buff. It has been my favorite period since I saw the Michael Bay Pearl Harbor in school. People think it’s weird and that I must be an asshole or something for enjoying learning about it.

Once, I talked about some of what Hitler thought, as it was relevant that people understand what he said in relation to a discussion on racism we were having. And instead of people thinking on what I said, they just said “should we be scared you know that?”. As if knowing about things like what’s in mein Kampf must be racist. consistently, I’m the only one who knows anything about the Holocaust.

I am not a Nazi apologist or some crazy weirdo wanting to go back to the old days. I’m just a person who wants to understand the past and avoid their mistakes. We have to stop being afraid of confronting ideas that scares us because avoiding topics like Hitler creates idiots like Greene.

The same goes for things like slavery, the treatment of native Americans, Japanese internment and so many other aspects of the past. We’re too scared to confront them in a meaningful way and we suffer for it.

Edit: I know Pearl Harbor is super cringe. I just like it don’t judge me lol
