Letter: Nazi memorabilia hypocrisy

"Is this the same Jim Shaw who promotes and glorifies Patriot Day?" asks Fargo resident Ron Martin. "Even parading around in Colonial battle uniforms?"

Letter to the editor FSA
We are part of The Trust Project.

I read Jim Shaw's front page article regarding World War II Nazi memorabilia on sale locally and the terrible message this sends.

Is this the same Jim Shaw who promotes and glorifies Patriot Day? Even parading around in Colonial battle uniforms?

“I don’t like it. It’s not right,” World War II veteran Vern Otterson said. “We were fighting against the Nazis. They were horrible. Why should anyone be running around selling Nazi stuff?”

But wait, the left tells us that the early patriots were evil slave owners of the worst kind. Anyone see Jim's hypocrisy?

Ron Martin is a resident of Fargo.

What to read next
Mike Rachow of Fargo writes, "America has had its little hissy fit with former President Donald Trump, voting him out of office in 2020, along with a lot of other Republican officeholders. Two years later, we see the results of electing a bunch of idealistic dreamers to run this country."
Dennis Kooren responds to a column about the The Supreme Court from Tribune columnist Cal Thomas in The Forum's Sept. 23rd e-edition.
Karen K. Ehrens, former coordinator for Creating a Hunger Free North Dakota and Healthy North Dakota, writes, "The initiative’s goal is to end hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by 2030, so that fewer Americans experience diet-related diseases like diabetes, obesity and hypertension."
George Merkt, a digital content contributor for Students For a Conservative Voice, writes, "This week and going forward, North Dakotans should support practical and clean energy solutions that take advantage of all the state has to offer."
