Albuquerque, January 27—Today marks 78 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest concentration camp, in 1945. On this day, we take time to bring honor to the memory of the more than 6 million Jewish men, women, and children who were murdered at the hand of the Nazis.
We keep their memories alive so that this history is never forgotten or erased. Although the Holocaust was one of the darkest times in history, what we can learn from this history is how to prevent it from ever happening again.
Today, let us take the opportunity to reflect on our responsibilities to stand up against oppression, prejudice, and hatred in all forms and to carry the duty of “Never Again” into future generations.
We don’t forget that this site hasn’t used the word “Trump” since 8/9/2022 nor commented on S. Pena’s crimes since 1/16/2023.
In other words, S. Pearce, K. Skaggs et al are not trying to learn from GOP mistakes; they offer no way forward for the shrinking party.
Lament the Holocaust all they want, their job is to provide leadership now.
During 2017, 2018, and 2019, I keep clinging to the delusion that conservatives would turn from Trump.
But after years of his scandals, lies, failures, stupidity and cruelty very very few did.
The Right’s reaction to covid and the attempted coup on J6 made me realize that there is no off ramp for fascism for most conservatives.
Conservatives have given up everything to have this identity. The Bible, Constitution, and community don’t matter, only what Fox news and the echo chamber matters.
The holocaust may be coming to America soon and if it does you can count on Conservatives to turn in their neighbors and help load the trains. There is no limit to what they can be convinced.
Fight fascism in America, destroy the GOP.
