For the past two years, the Left has been demanding that President Donald Trump is, at least by association, a Nazi.
They must’ve been scratching their heads Tuesday, then, as Trump ordered the last known member of the Third Reich to be shipped back to Germany.
Yes, Germany: the residence of — according to radically left-wing New York Times writer Michelle Goldberg, who recently claimed Trump wants to murder people — Angela Merkel, the “leader of the free world” (please read here).
Why would Nazi Trump send one of his own to free-leading Merkel?
Nevertheless, Jakiw Palij is indeed on his way to some semblance of attempted justice.
As reported by Fox News, his history is sinister:
“The 95-year-old served at the Nazi SS training camp in German-occupied Poland and facilitated the murder of 6,000 prisoners in one day.”
Palij immigrated to the U.S. in 1949 (yes — the real definition of “immigrated”), receiving citizenship in 1957 after identifying as a farmer or factory worker. In 2001, his history as an armed guard at Nazi death camps was discovered. Both presidents Bush and Obama failed to find a country that would take him. Enter President Trump, who promised to send him away, and did — via diplomacy which convinced Germany.
As Palij was being taken away from his two-story home in Queens — which he shared with his 86-year-old wife, Marina — a reporter asked, “Sir are you a Nazi? Are you scared about where you’re headed next, sir?”
That question might apply to places other than Germany.
Oh — and by the way, the Nazi was deported by ICE. I thought they were evil too?
