I also did not think she supported or liked Hitler. And maybe you


personally were not offended. Maybe I can help you understand why some people were.

Here is her quote in context:

”I actually don't have any problems at all with the word 'nationalism'. I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism. Globalism is what I don't want, so when you think about whenever we say nationalism, the first thing people think about, at least in America, is Hitler. He was a national socialist. But if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay, fine. The problem is that he wanted, he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German. Everybody to look a different way. To me, that's not nationalism. In thinking about how we could go bad down the line, I don't really have an issue with nationalism. I really don't. I think that it's okay.

Here is the problem: "But if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay, fine. The problem is that he wanted, he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize."

Making Germany great and having things run well entailed his killing of millions of Jews, Romas, handicapped, gays, Communists and probably more that I have missed. That is NOT "okay, fine." She says the "problem" was his desire to globablize. Can you see how wrong that is?

Even before the actual Holocaust began, Jews (and others) had drastic work, education and other restrictions.

Her statement was bizarrely unfeeling. Yet, I give her props for later statements that more reflected her feelings--at least I hope it wasn't just to diminish the backlash.

She said later that Hitler was "a homicidal, psychotic maniac" and there is "no excuse or defense ever for ... everything that he did".

That makes more sense than "okay, fine."
