Imagine being more indignant and outraged over what people call our government's concentration camps than over the fact that our government is running concentration camps....

I respect . I am a surrogate for his campaign. Don’t collect a check. Never have. I just believe in him. But if he waxed nostalgic about a white supremacist calling him “son,” which would never happen, but if it did, I’d call him out. Privately & Publicly.

1. An InfoWars host with a VERIFIED TWITTER ACCOUNT advocated lynching Obama on his show yesterday "He belongs in jail. He belongs in Guantanamo Bay. I mean look - I'm not saying this should happen - but Barack Obama, find the tallest tree and a rope"

Whether you agree with Booker's statement or not, it's measured and respectful and specific about what he found offensive. It engaged Biden in good faith. Only for Biden to dismiss the criticism (some could say condescendingly) cause Booker "knows better"

However, for many Germans, the concentration camps were not seen as part of a program of political and racial terror, but a sensible policy, which sought to deal with the problems of uncontrolled immigration of Jews from the East and with the socially and politically deviant.

One of the enduring myths of the Nazi era is that average Germans didn't know what was happening to persecuted groups including the Jews. Everyone knew about the round ups and the deportations - they were impossible to miss in daily life.

Well, - the fact that you slipped in “Nazi” when I never said that is pretty unfortunate. Almost as unfortunate as the fact that you spent this whole time w/o discussing DHS freezers, “dog pounds,” missing children, & human rights abuses that uphold use of this term.

Erm, Godwin himself has said today to call them concentration camps. Nice try though.
