Authorities can also make that request given his clothing is grossly offensive to the point of inevitable violence. The same also goes for all the a holes out there with facial tattoos that contain gross obscenities. No Supreme Court judgements allow for either the 1st or 2nd amendment rights to be used (manipulated) to the point where other people's basic rights are seriously infringed upon.
What? It's an article of clothing. That justifies violence?

I always love programs that paints the US (and the West in general) as the sole boogeyman responsible for all the misery in the world. The world does that just fine.

Look deeper.

There was world wide discrimination against the Jews and other minorities for centuries. Pogroms in Russia, for example. Wide spread belief after World War 1 that the Jews (and other undesirables) were the Merchants of Death, ie, war profiteers that some love to rail against.

The Germans took the problem to a cold, efficient solution.

It was so brutal that it shocked the world.

And made surviving Jews in Europe come to conclusion that they needed a country that would not try to kill them, a homeland.

I am challenging you. Suggesting violence over a shirt is quite ridiculous. Granted, political discourse nowadays is ridiculous.

In the middle of a rather hysterical bout of fear mongering, I asked a reasonable question. I received hysterical replies.

My main gripe is that it becomes difficult to impossible to have a decent discussion of a documentary or a news story.

People need to see history thru photos
He looks like a real threat to democracy. Really destroying our society. s/
Interesting that the focus is on the dude and his questionable fashion sense, but none of y'all are looking at the broader picture.
January 6th, Capitol Hill. Ring any bell?
It is the narrow-minded, myopic view that destroys what is left of any society.

you dont get it , ( again) this is about the US and the Holocaust, not other countries>
as to shocked the world .... NOT till AFTER the camps were liberated was the world shocked, Before that, they discounted what the Nazi's were doing
its obvious you did not watch it. I learned lots that was not taught in 8th grade US history>

as to the shirt, its incredible offensive to those that died>and those that survived or lost loved ones an to wear it on THIS specific day is just fucked.

Watch the series than re post ur opinions.

I compare Lindbergh ( America First Committee) with Trump,( make America great)
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST
