Hard Heads - Deep Sand

Recently Congressman Clay Higgins visited Auschwitz, the Nazi death camp where untold thousands of Jews were gassed to death, their bodies burned in furnaces and their ashes disposed of like garbage.

Congressman Higgins has come under heavy fire for videoing and narrating his visit, and in graphic language explaining the horrific process, step by step, location by location as the Jews were first herded into the mass execution chambers and moved to the furnaces where their bodies were disposed of.

I remember, in the waning days of the Second World War as the Allied Forces liberated the concentration camps and the newsreels and magazine articles exposed the gas chambers and furnaces and captured film of bull dozers pushing the skeletal bodies of Jews who had been starved and worked to death into mass graves.

This happened, it is undeniably documented and every man, woman and child in the free world should know that it happened, to understand just how far prejudice and rabid hatred can push evil men and the lengths they are willing to go to achieve their dark ambitions.

They need to realize that given the chance, ISIS, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and any number of radical Islamic groups or governments would gladly repeat the same or worse.

Hitler is not an anomaly or a prototype, he is just one of the monsters who visited demonic evil on mankind, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot and now the demented Islamists who take great joy in hacking off the heads of infidels, throwing gays off the roof of tall buildings, burning and drowning helpless people in steel cages and crucifying their enemies on crosses.

Is this any less evil than what the Nazis did?

Should the world not be aware that this level of evil exists, past and present and the ovens and gas chambers where six million Jews were mercilessly murdered be exposed to the light of day?

Should not the atrocities of Hitler, Stalin, ISIS and all the rest of the monsters responsible for the murder of millions of human beings and the methods they used to accomplish it be made public knowledge, to be reviled and abhorred and prevented from ever happening again.

I have visited Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum in Israel, and it is a heartbreaking experience.

As you walk through the exhibits, see the actual box cars where Jews were herded onto like cattle and transported to their final destination, the graphic photographs, the Children’s Memorial and Hall of Remembrance where the pictures of beautiful Jewish children who died at the hands of the Nazis, their names read, aloud one after the other, you can’t help but wonder, “Why didn’t somebody stop this”?

So, Congressman Clay Higgins, I care not what criticism others level at you, those who say you defiled a hallowed place by injecting reality and reminding the world that such evil existed and making us face the fact that it still exists today.

As one who remembers those days and observed them from afar, my hat is off to you Sir, I only wish that some of our other “public servants” would do something as realistic and useful.

As a Christian, I join hands with my Jewish brothers and sisters to reinforce the Israeli national motto,


What do you think?

Pray our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

Hard heads and deep sands
I read this article and my heart wepted for those families who experienced these great atrocities. May our citizens and leaders be awakened and alarmed to this piece of history and arouse them to instill measures to keep this from recurring. Thank you sir for stirring and reminding others about this piece of history.

When you desecrate a place where so many have died, you deserve all the criticism you get. No one is going to be permitted to treat Muslims the same way Jews were treated or to use the deaths of innocent people to further his own ambitions.

Innocent mistake
This was, at worst, an innocent mistake. As a Jew who was raised liberal and later evolved into being a conservative, my complaint is with liberal Jews who make excuses for Muslim terrorism and who denigrate Zionism, only to turn around and complain about well-meaning conservatives such as this Congressman. The same left-wing professors and media moguls and opinion-molders who make excuses for Muslims who actually DENY the Holocaust are now going after Congressman Higgins, who is doing the best he knows how to fight AGAINST Holocaust denial. Liberal Jews should be ashamed. They are just playacting....."playacting" being a word which I previously defined by using previous C.D. Soapbox essay. This is the sort of garbage which drove my towards conservatism.

Innocent Mistake
The sign at Auschwitz requests silence in memory of those who died there. Instead, an ambitious Congressman fomenting a Christian-Muslim war paraded through and made a film to further his political aspirations. Innocent mistake? This is desecration at best. Hatred of Islam seems to justify anything in the eyes of people like this. The lesson of Auschwitz is to treat people for who they are, not for their race, religion, or country. That was stated clearly in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Too bad some people still have not gotten the message.

Never Again
Amen Charlie on Never Again. We need more people like Clay Higgins in this country, we have to many that are more concerned about being politically correct than doing what is right. Anybody who denies or tries to downplay the Nazi atrocities will have their own special place in Hell. nuff said God Bless Plowboy
