I read with disappointment and a certain feeling of bewilderment Judy Slys Oct. 27 column Now, weighing in on Modesto issues, heres ... Hitler? If Slys account of former Councilwoman Janice Keatings posting of a Hitler parody on YouTube is accurate, I have to questions Keatings judgment.
Over the last several years many community leaders, educators, groups and yes, even the Editorial Board of The Bee, have called for a return to civility in our society. I am in complete agreement with those advocating that.
Regardless of the issue, to use a depiction of such a historically despicable individual to draw attention to an opinion on any issue, etc., is in my opinion an example of the very type of rhetoric those advocates of civility are urging our society to discontinue. For a former city councilwoman to resort to this type of thing is particularly disgusting. I suggest Keating consider how offensive using such a parody is to some of her fellow citizens.
