Resisting Against Control
The group went on to say “If the government has control over our children today, they control our country’s future. We The People must be vigilant and protect children from an overreaching government.”
Well That’s a Relief
The group later made it clear on their Facebook page that they do not condone the actions of Hitler, “We condemn Adolf Hitler’s actions and his dark place in human history.”
