We must stand up against hate, division

first_imgAnyone who was not sickened by the flying of the Nazi flag should be reminded over 50 million people died in World War II. Around 6 million Jews died in concentration camps and another 6 million to 8 million people died because of their race or color. If you aren’t appalled at this symbol of hate, seek help.More concerning is that our current president uses the same strategies that gave rise to Hitler: hate, division and criticism of the press. His constant lies and the apathy of the current Republican Party to remove this man from power who was elected on the politics of fear hate and change brings me great concern.So let us remember “The road to Auschwitz was built by hate, but paved with indifference.” Don’t believe it couldn’t happen here. Let us not idly stand by and watch the politics of hate destroy us.You may have voted for change, but instead you have been given hate and division. I implore all those to rethink your position and to stand against the politics of hate and party-before- country before a quote of indifference is written about us.Scott BrysonScotiaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesSchenectady teens accused of Scotia auto theft, chase; Ended in Clifton Park crash, Saratoga Sheriff…EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?

It was an amazing performance and I can say I was moved and saddened by this play.For me it also sparked a quote I remember from years past: “The road to Auschwitz was built by hate, but paved with indifference,” by Ian Kershaw.last_img read more
