Letter: Pitts comparing Trump to Hitler is outrageous

Pitts comparing Trump to Hitler is outrageous

The Jan. 18 column by Leonard Pitts published in The News was astounding. Pitts wrote about fighting ignorance. Perhaps the fight should start with him. To compare Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, no matter what your political leaning, borders on insanity. How a newspaper could allow such an outrage in its pages is unimaginable.

Comparison of the candidacy of someone running for president in a free democracy even remotely mimicking the acts of horror of the 20th century’s most evil person doesn’t warrant space on the op-ed page. His column was a disservice to all people.
