Richard Brodsky | Posted 07.27.2014 | World
Richard Brodsky

In England, neither the Labor nor Conservative Parties won; in France the National Front came in first; in Greece and Hungary the neo-Nazi parties, Golden Dawn and Jobbik, made big strides. The same in Denmark. And we've seen resurgent neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic, anti-minority movements in Ukraine and Russia. This cannot be shrugged off.

I certainly hope the murders in Kansas City are the responsibility of a raving lunatic. Even if so, the evidence elsewhere should give us pause. And where Nazism raises its head, we should be there in opposition.

Anyone who dismisses the resurgence of Nazism in the former Soviet Union is, well, doing a disservice to the truth, historical memory and the Jewish community. The history and severity of anti-Semitism in Ukraine is of such enormity as to touch millions across the world.

In spite of all, it may be in the world's interest to hope that the Olympics are successful, warts and all, not so much because we condone Putin, but because of what the games could do for the Russian soul.

Dawkins and his fellows may remonstrate that what they object to is a belief system, freely adopted by its holders, but they are still participating in the unhealthy marginalization of a minority group.

Golden Dawn has opened an office in Washington, and some of what we've heard from the Baltic states should give the State Department pause. Even the Timothy McVeigh's decision to bomb government buildings still resonates among some extreme right-wing groups.

In the face of the U.S.'s two greatest crises of the century, Americans have turned to FDR and George W. Bush for solace. The Germans had once chosen Hitler for theirs. Which path will the Greeks venture down on May 6? Who can lead a country that has hit rock bottom?
