LETTER: Get facts on Hitler straight

This morning (Aug. 1) at 11 a.m., I encountered two LaRouche supporters standing by their table blocking the sidewalk. This was right outside the Seahurst Post Office.

Their sign stated "Impeach Obama" and great care had been taken to alter the picture to present a Hitler-like effect.

They have the freedom of speech to do this, but they need to be respectful of our rights to use the sidewalk. They were basically not much better than Hitler themselves, by blocking the sidewalk from all but those with the ability to walk without help.

I don't think these two LaRouche supporters knew the facts of World War II. They appeared too young to have been around during World War II. If they don't know the history of the beginnings of World War II, then they don't know that Hitler slaughtered not only the Jews but anyone to have been deemed different from the "normal" Aryan, including the mentally ill, disabled, artists, intelligensia, gays and others.

These two men prevented any person who needed a wheelchair, a walker, cane or a helping hand--Discrimination, just like Hitler.

Don't block the way for others just so you can use your freedom of speech. And if you wish to call someone Hitler, please make sure you have your facts straight.
