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.

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:
