James DeFrancia: Nazis are not ‘decent people’

It is time for everyone to accept that fact that we have either a dunce, or a vile manipulator, in the White House.

His appalling ignorance, cultural insensitivity and complete lack of historical knowledge are disgraceful, and his behavior is a stain on our nation’s moral standing.

There is no moral equivalency for Nazis – none. There are no “decent people” in a group of Nazis or White Supremacists. There are only ignorant, prejudiced people in such groups.

What’s next from our buffoon of a President … lynching is the same as post-football-game student excesses?

The English language lacks sufficient words to condemn the disaster that has befallen the Oval Office.

My father and three uncles did not fight Nazis in order to condone such conduct from the White House in any form.
