Nazis are universal cancer

Nazis are universal cancer

Regarding Jonathan Tobin’s “When does protesting pandemic restrictions become anti-Semitic?”, trivializing the Holocaust indeed sets Jewish teeth at edge, so when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likened the illegal alien detention centers to the concentration camps we Jews needed bite guards  (Opinion, April 28).

But to take claim to Jews being the only victims of the Nazis trivializes the Holocaust equally. Let us not forget that the entire western world was brutalized during World War II. The Holocaust is tragically our unique story but the Nazis were and are a universal cancer. A sign like “Heil Witmer” with a swastika painted on it is a sign expressing contempt for Michigan’s Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Let’s not lose sight that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
