When we’re children we take everything around us for normal. The young boy in this picture is not to blame. He didn’t buy the shirt, he doesn’t know what the symbol means. The man holding his hand, I presume his father, obviously thinks that it’s okay to make this statement in public and use a child to do so.
The WWII generation is gone, with the exception of a very few elderly people. We dishonor their memory and all that they fought for by allowing this in public. Hitler was considered the Devil and rightfully so. Our memories are way shorter than I ever thought possible.
Don’t Forget That While Republicans Find This Acceptable… They’re Banning Books About The Holocaust In Their Classrooms.

Here’s an interesting slant on the subject.
Florida has the 3rd highest Jewish population in the US. The books weren't approved because of their woke political slant, not because they were about the Holocaust. Other books about the Holocaust were approved. It is a required subject in Florida. https://t.co/uwk4QGitoS pic.twitter.com/ty2RkFUuGx

Banned for a “woke political slant?” Wow. But if it was just “Maus” and a few others, and the basic information about what happened in WWII is intact, I can certainly live with that.

Let me just interject this here: I only know this image from Twitter and we live in a world of AI and AI-generated images. This, in all fairness, could be one of them. If this is going on and if DeSantis in fact knows that this is going on, then he needs to get a handle on this immediately. This is not acceptable to any normal mindset. This is incredibly negative. The first image in this article is one of Hitler Youth and the other is Hitler in full bloom.
Jon Cooper saw this image on Twitter and said, “Caption This.” Here are a few replies.
I was thinking the same thing! I also wonder about the level of anger in this boy’s home.

There was a scandal in California several years back where a kid who was indoctrinated in a Nazi home was caught on camera being vicious to his physics teacher, a man who happened to be Asian. That clip went viral. The kid grew into a man and dropped out of social media altogether, being something of a social pariah.
Then there was the infamous Derek Black, who was the son of the founder of Stormfront and the godson of KKK’s David Duke. Derek was set to take over the family business and be an extreme right-winger. He went to college and got a wake up call.
Point being, a child or a young person may think something is normal because it’s normal inside their home, but when they take that behavior out into a larger world, they find out how totally irrational and extreme they are. It’s a hard lesson. I hope this young boy doesn’t have to find that out, but from where he’s starting and what the influences around him are, it would certainly not surprise me. I wish him luck.
