Who is Dr. Matt Keefer? I don’t know, and I don’t have much interest in defending him. I am just disappointed how little it takes to set off the instinct to form a mob and hang someone. Apparently, as Lobotero’s post indicates, Keefer doesn’t hate Nazis enough.
We are always proclaiming we know the reason our country is going down the toilet. Do I know it? I can only guess that whether our country going down the toilet. If we are headed down that stinky drain, I suspect the reason is that so many in our country insist that other people think and do exactly like “me.” Ironically, that is what is wrong with Nazis and Communists.
Contrary to what some think, Communists are just as horrid as Nazis. It just so happens that we fought on the same side as the Communists in WWII. So, with respect to the Communists, we are less inclined towards some idiotic ideological purity that says all Nazis are utterly and absolutely evil. Yet many more people have died in Communist purges.
As I said, I have not got a clue who Dr. Matt Keefer happens to be, but if the quotes in this post are all it takes to rile people, then those people have a problem, not Keefer.
What should our forefathers have done after WWII, exterminated the entire population of Germany? Didn’t just about all the German people help Hitler’s regime during the war? To do otherwise was almost certain death. Germany had a police state. What do we think police states do?
Consider the cancel culture and how little it takes to intimidate most Americans. The Nazis and the Communists operated police states. They did not stop at intimidation. They sent their enemies — people who refuse to think like them and obey the regime — to concentration camps to die. Of course, the people who operate the drug cartels are no better; they torture and murder whoever gets in their way.
If we lose our constitutional republic, we risk rule by people with the morals of Nazis, Communists, terrorists, drug/human trafficking/gun runners and other such criminal gangs. Those criminals will seduce our children to obey them, or they will kill them. They will kill anyone who doesn’t obey them. And how will they know whether we are willing to obey? That will take more than stupid masks and occasionally lethal vaccines. Heaven help anyone who is given a choice between working at a concentration camp or being sent to die in one.

Not my words but those of an Indiana politician……
There are multiple candidates running for seats on the Zionsville Community Schools Board of Trustees in Indiana, including Dr. Matt Keefer, an anesthesiologist who calls himself an independent option disliked by both “Republican leaders” and the “extreme left” due to his critical thinking and inability to “be controlled.” Pushback against him has reached new levels, however, after he recently defended some of the Nazis during World War II in comments under an online post, reports FOX59. The controversy started when Keefer, who runs on an anti- “wokeness” and “indoctrination” platform, was asked in a since-deleted Facebook thread if teachers asserting that the Tulsa Massacre was terrible, or that all Nazis were bad, would be considered “indoctrination,” in his eyes. Keefer’s response is what instantly raised eyebrows.
“All Nazis weren’t ‘bad,’ as you…

“It is the duty of every man, as far as his ability extends, to detect and expose delusion and error”. Thomas Paine
How to choose what to “detect and expose as delusion and error was observed 3000 years ago in verse to help everyone decide before making choices
Problem today is in the USA, it is illegal to teach these verses to children who l in time grows up and possibly run for office and get elected to make choices, but have no concept of what guidelines to consider first and foremost before making choices.
Same for social media writers and political pundits reporting the opinion.
Regards and goodwill blogging.
Ha! Now there’s an unpopular opinion sure to get one in trouble with the linear thinkers busy proclaiming their own virtue.
If we truly wish to prevent Nazis or fascists of all sorts from gaining power, we really need to understand a couple of things. First, given the right circumstances we all have the potential to be “bad,” to be Nazi’s. That’s a hard truth for people to except, but it’s true. Second, often “good Germans” who went long with the Nazi’s and therefore enabled them to rise to power and stay there, really were “good” people.
It’s probably far more comfortable to try to draw a harsh line in the sand between ourselves and the world’s evil and to pretend as if we are completely separate from it, incapable of doing harm because it only afflicts the “bad,” but that is a recipe for disaster. That is how you invite more of it.
That last paragraph is a keeper. That well explains why Democrats think that they can get away with giving our leaders all the power they want. Our tribe can be trusted. It is the people in those other tribes we cannot trust.
Spot on. You know my mantra which I keep on “repeat.” The NAZIs, Communists, Fascists, and today’s American Progressives/Liberals/Democrats/Greens are all branches of the same tree of Human Secular Totalitarianism. Their ideas have the same roots. They share many ideas in common. In their Totalitarianism, the ultimate outcome of their ideas will be the same.
The poor candidate called before our “Commie” cancel culture Inquisitors should have said not all Germans were bad. Alas, Big Brother takes note if one word is against the Narrative.
Sin is pride run amuck. Pride says if “you” don’t affirm me, “you” are bad.
