Angela Merkel memorializes the German nation's transgressions.

BERLIN (AP) — Chancellor Angela Merkel and Germany’s main Jewish leader warned against tolerating modern-day anti-Semitism and racism as they marked the 80th anniversary Friday of the Nazis’ anti-Jewish Kristallnacht, or “Night of Broken Glass,” pogrom.

On Nov. 9, 1938, Jews were terrorized throughout Germany and Austria. At least 91 people were killed, hundreds of synagogues burned down, some 7,500 Jewish businesses vandalized, and up to 30,000 Jewish men arrested, many of whom were taken away to concentration camps.

Twenty years after Germany’s defeat in World War I and 5½ years after Adolf Hitler took power, state-driven anti-Semitism “made it possible for many Germans to live out long-held resentments, to live out hatred and violence,” Merkel said. “With the November pogrom, the road to the Holocaust was mapped out.”

Shall we sit and wait silently until it happens again, or shall we do something now, before it happens?

Because it will happen again.

Mañana, mañana…

As you know, I've been making references to 1933 even before the orange oaf was elected.

These are scary times we’re living in.

Demonize a group of people who are doing their best to obtain the dream we present to the world.
