Message to a right-wing radio personality

Dan Conry is a local radio personality on KTLK 100.3 FM, the Twin Cities main talk-radio station.



Dear Mr. Dan Conry,

Today I heard you describe Democrats as "goose-stepping" and "jackbooted" in their support for one of their presidential candidates.

Your usage of Nazi imagery is not only inaccurate in its description of Democrats, it also disrespects the historical reality and legacy of the Nazis.

The Holocaust, the greatest crime against humanity the world has seen, was committed by Nazis, and this is no laughing matter. Nazi terminology should not be bandied about in a haphazard, joking fashion.

National organizations like the Anti-Defamation League have actively worked to help Americans understand the historical reality and graveness of the Nazi legacy, and your joking use of the phrases "jackbooted" and "goose-stepping" deserves the ADL's condemnation.

This is no "politically correct" language policing. Idle, joking, and inappropriate language regarding the Nazi legacy, such as yours, masks the reality of the Nazis and the Holocaust for new generations.

Sincerely,
Adam Schenck
