Mike Huckabee Gets Massively Ratioed Over Ignorant D-Day Tweet

At the time of this story Mike Huckabee‘s tweet had over 31k comments and only 13k likes (which is 13k too many IMO). If you are unfamiliar with the inner workings of Twitter that’s called being “ratioed”. The logic being if there are way more comments than likes, you probably said something pretty awful as most people who leave positive comments also push the like button.

If you are unfamiliar with history, 80 years ago Adolf Hitler rose to power in Germany and invaded Poland, kicking off World War II. By 1940 the Axis had spread to France and other areas of Europe and North Africa.

75 Years ago, allied forces sent 160k troops to Normandy to liberate France from the German invaders. This day is called D-Day.

Angela Merkel is the Chancellor of Germany. She had absolutely nothing to do with anything that a fascist dictator did in Germany over 80 years ago. Furthermore, all of Germany considers that era a massive shit stain on their history, much like we Americans feel about slavery and the Civil War, only much worse. So much so that it’s actually illegal to display, buy, sell, in some cases own Nazi (and Soviet) materials in Germany.

A common sentiment shared in Germany for most of my lifetime has been that when the Allies won World War II they liberated Germany from Hitler’s reign of evil. Ironically this type of evil is often mimicked in policy (to a lesser extent) by President Trump; someone Mike Huckabee is a such a huge supporter of, that he even pushed for his daughter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, to work for his administration.
