An Owensboro, Kentucky man claims he was treated unfairly when he brought his five-year-old son trick-or-treating in a Hitler costume. Bryant Golbach showed up at ‘Trail of Treats’ in a full Nazi soldier costume, while his young son wore a swastika armband and Hitler-style mustache.

In a Facebook post that has since been removed, Golbach complained that people were making “snide remarks” and “screaming obscenities” and scaring his son. Golbach said he and his son “love history, and often dress the part of historical figures.” He has since called his decision “bad judgment.”
I am pretty sure, “bad judgment” doesn’t really cover this amount of wanton hate and simple ignorance. I am pretty sure this guy is just an asshole.
On top of this, the nation’s wounds are still quite fresh after another hateful prick shot and killed people in a synagogue in Pittsburgh where 11 people were killed including a 97-year-old Holocaust survivor. You can read more details about that tragedy at The New York Times.
