Letter to the editor: Missing a lesson in history

President Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and the rest of the Democrat Party:

  • They want more, more and still more power to control the people.
  • The federal courts under the Justice Department tell medical facilities with birthing services that they must provide death services, that is abortion. Medical service people cannot object to killing babies.
  • Is it not strange that in military service, soldiers can be released from service if they objected to killing enemy soldiers (who were trying to kill them) and yet medical personnel are not allowed to object to killing babies?
  • Strange. When I served in the U.S. Army of Occupation (in Germany from 1954-56), I learned to speak German and had previously followed the War Crimes Trials. I heard about the terrible death camps. The world and many German citizens were totally shocked to learn about those crimes. People on trial had, in some cases, said they had orders to perform killing.

They meant they couldn’t refuse an order.

The result was that many who operated the death camps of Hitler’s time were sentenced to death or life in prison. It would seem the present administration and federal courts have not learned from history.
