Alt-right sneers at WWII vets

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ODNE - Les­lie P. Gart­ner, Reis­ter­stown

Of the 405,000 Amer­i­can sol­diers who died in World War II, 294,000 were killed by sol­diers of the Third Re­ich. Th­ese were Nazi sol­diers whose uni­forms bore the swastika and who raised their arms us­ing the Nazi salute. So one won­ders why Richard B. Spencer, mem­bers of the Na­tional Pol­icy In­sti­tute and Amer­i­can white su­prem­a­cists of their ilk feel so smug as they em­u­late Hitler and the Nazi move­ment?

Why do they imag­ine them­selves to be such good Amer­i­cans while they tram­ple on and des­e­crate the graves of those brave heroes who gave their lives to pro­tect the United States of Amer­ica? Ba­si­cally, white su­prem­a­cists are cowards who van­dal­ize build­ings un­der the cover of dark­ness; they are ob­scene traitors to our great na­tion.
