I was watching an old Twilight Zone episode from 1963 written by Rod Serling called “He’s Alive”. A young Dennis Hopper was playing a guy dressed in a brown shirt uniform talking on a street corner. His fearmongering and hate-filled speech aren’t getting through to the small cluster of people jeering him until the spirit of Adolph Hitler hires on as a consultant.
The problem here is Serling had it wrong. His first mistake was that the neo-Nazi types and general garden variety of bigots and racists of today aren’t dressed in brown shirts and holding street corner rallies. They’re on radio and TV and speaking from a podium at political debates and campaign stops, and on the floors of Congress. They’re not dressed in brown shirt uniforms either. They could be wearing 3-piece suits, power dresses, in shirt sleeve with or without a tie, or in a sweater vest.
