I don’t blog much, but occasionally I get really pissed off with nowhere else to go, and this is such an occasion.

I am almost beside myself over something, and I don’t know what to do about it. For years now (and especially for the past few months) I keep hearing people say that Hitler was elected!

He was NOT! I have known this since I was a kid, and it is not open to argument.

Yet, earlier tonight I heard the claim again, solemnly intoned in a professional documentary:

“Hitler won the election.”

Which wouldn’t have been so bad but for the fact that last week I got into a big argument with friends who had insisted Hitler had been “elected democratically.” I insisted that he had not, they insisted that he had, and it felt like an episode of the Twilight Zone.

It is one thing to argue over opinions, but this is a historical fact. Sometimes I get really depressed and wonder What is wrong with people?

The “Hitler won” argument has gotten really loud because of Trump’s election (as if that should change past history somehow).

God how I hate how the human mind “works.”
