This is much ado about nothing. So the thousands of people involved in Civil War reenactments are all closest supporters of slavery? This pretend “historical” military stuff holds no interest for me, but it is no more relevant to a political campaign than a candidate being involved in a Medieval society. It says a lot about the bankruptcy of liberal ideas that this is your notion of “danger.”
The notorious Dr. Josef Mengele, served with the SS Division Wiking during its early campaigns. According to all accounts, he performed the normal duties of a combat medic, even being awarded the Iron Cross for saving two wounded men from a tank. After being wounded, Mengele was deemed unfit for combat and was absorbed into the SS Nazi concentration camp system, where he gained his infamy. Mengele was very proud of his Waffen SS service and his front-line decorations. As the true horrors of the concentration camp system came to light, his former comrades attempted to have his name removed from the division’s roll of veterans.
This tempest in a teapot is just another good example of what is bad with politics. The article failed to mention that he also reenacted US soldiers too. A Union soldier from the Civil War. A WWI Doughboy and a Paratrooper from WWII. The media seems to have left out that he did.
