It began with words

The Holocaust did not begin with killing; it began with words. The Museum calls on all American citizens, our religious and civic leaders, and the leadership of all branches of the government to confront racist thinking and divisive hateful speech.

A few months ago, I shared an article asking the (then just hopefully rhetorical) question, “Would you hide a Jew from the Nazis?” I don’t think it’s rhetorical any longer. We are about to allow actual neo-nazis to take control of our country. They are dangerous, and we have to stand up to them. It’s no longer a question of “Could it happen here?” but a matter of “It is happening here.”
