It used to be that there were places where even the political left wouldn’t go but now that Trump Derangement Syndrome has been unleashed, nothing is sacred including The Holocaust.
As perhaps the greatest horror of the twentieth century, Hitler and his Nazi regime’s persecution, imprisonment and industrialized slaughter of six million Jews, The Holocaust was so terrible that it was beyond the pale to ever exploit it for the sake of political gain.
Now liberals have ventured into the territory once staked out by the very neo-Nazis that they claim to despise and in doing so, have stooped to new lows by exploiting one of history’s most unspeakable periods of human suffering because they won’t accept the results of a legitimate election.
When it comes to decency, the left has none and a new play that twists the heart-rending story of the doomed 15-year-old Anne Frank represents rock bottom for The Resistance.
Frank’s story was told in the 1952 book “The Diary of Anne Frank” which collects the child’s letters as she and her family hid in a secret room in the building where her father worked during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam. It covers two years until they were discovered and sent off to the camps and has become an indispensable work from that dark period.
Having already dehumanized federal law enforcement agents by equating ICE agents with the Nazi fiends who herded Jewish children into the gas showers in a despicable meme that has been promoted by mainstream media and political figures, one can argue that the Holocaust has already been put in play by the propagandists.
That being noted, the Los Angeles theater company that has adapted “The Diary of Anne Frank” with the protagonist as a Latina woman hiding from ICE who are depicted as the Nazis is exactly the type of morally repugnant garbage that you would expect from the modern American left.

Breitbart News reports on this abominable exercise in poor taste, “L.A. Production of ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’ Replaces Nazis with ICE Agents Hunting for ‘LatinX’ Illegals”:
A modernized theatrical production of The Diary of Anne Frank in Los Angeles will re-imagine the Jewish Frank family hiding from Nazis with Latino immigrants hiding from Immigration, Customs, and Enforcement (ICE) officials, its directors have revealed.
The production, directed by former Roseanne writer Stan Zimmerman and scheduled to run throughout September, “was inspired by the true story of a Jewish woman in Los Angeles who created a ‘Safe House’ for a Latina mother and her two daughters after her husband was deported by ICE.” The play’s characters in the attic will be played by a LatinX cast, according to a promotional website.
“Director Stan Zimmerman has cast his production of the classic play The Diary of Anne Frank, by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett and newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman,” the play’s promotional content reads.
The play will have a three-week run in Los Angeles but it’s hard to see this not catching fire with the demented left so you can probably expect a movie version at some point.
We have now reached the point where history no longer matters as it originally occurred thanks to the failure of our educational system and leftist propaganda that has successfully created what is a cartoon version of the Nazis and God help us all, it sells.
Not that they ever bother reading anything but the political left should pick up a copy of William L. Shirer’s definitive historical account The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich and devote some serious time to get through it. Even though it was published in 1960, Shirer’s exhaustive book is still the definitive work on Nazi Germany – although Richard J. Evans’ more recent trilogy is also notable – and if one wants to understand that America under President Donald Trump has nothing in common with that dark era they must acknowledge history.
But of course, they won’t because anti-Semitism is fine when the left does it.
