Bill Weld was formerly a Republican governor of Massachusetts and served on the Holocaust Commission under President George Bush. He currently is running for vice president on the Libertarian ticket which is composed of people who cannot stand Donald Trump and have misgiving concerning Hillary Clinton. Mr. Weld recently got carried away with his anger toward Donald Trump. He, particularly, was frightened at the Trump proposal to somehow round up eleven million illegal immigrants, place them in “concentration camps”and then somehow send them back to Mexico.
In 1938, Nazi Germans unleashed horrible attacks upon Jews that is known as Kristallnacht. “I can hear the glass crunching on Kristallnacht in the ghettos of Warsaw and Vienna when I hear Trump’s plan announced.”
Sorry, Mr. Weld, you are completely incorrect about Kristallnacht. Germans did not invade and conquer Poland until 1939, and there were no similar outbreaks against Jews in Austria on that night. If you claim to be a member of the Holocaust Commission, the least you can do is know your Holocaust history.It is mistakes such as these that allow Trump to complain people distort his ideas.
