    Refugee-Phobia: Lest We Forget

     

    As refugee-phobia  becomes pandemic across the US of A, a poll from 1938 is well worth  paying heed. The poll was taken in America among college students.

    In  Germany on November 9, 1938 was the infamous Kristallnacht. That night  across the German Reicht there was a coordinated attack on the Jewish  citizens. A slight four years before was the equally infamous Night of  the Long Knives, when Brownshirts with loyalty to the Nazi Party went on  a killing spree of Adolph Hitler's political enemies.

    This from The Crimson from that 1938 poll of US college students:

    "Jewish  refugees should not be admitted to the United States in great numbers, a  large majority of college youths in this country believes, according to  the first national poll of the Student Opinion Surveys of America." [The Crimson, 1938]

    From the Cornfield, we should always study history, we have been taught, so we do not repeat the mistakes of the past.
