President Barack Obama. It’s Not Just A Jewish Issue

Here is an excerpt (that is also a direct quote) from an article I read online:
As Hitler and World War II recede into history, the term “Nazi” has for too many Americans become a descriptive for someone, like President Obama for example, whose political views offend those employing the term. This is an insult to the president and a bigger insult to the many whose lives have been marred in some way by evil inflicted by those who wore the swastika.
ref: Not Just a Jewish issue, The Berkshire Beagle, December 28, 2010.

Hmmmm. I find it fascinating that some people (as the above-referenced article points out) use the term “Nazi” as a descriptive in reference to President Barack Obama.

I wonder if that article excerpt and the title of this Roland’s Ramblings has peaked your interest.

Indeed, the use of the words Hitler, Nazi, holocaust, and swastika as descriptives should not be confined to and truly are not just a Jewish issue. Read the following to see from where I am coming on this issue:

Swastika Is Deemed ‘Universal’ Hate Symbol
