This is not the first time. Charles Trimble has done it again. And again. And again. To understand his crime, I am merely changing the context from "Indian" to "Jewish" in his concluding paragraph: "It would be well for Jewish students in high schools and colleges to do that same kind of contextual and perspective research. Getting the total picture could perhaps help them break the chains of Jewish Holocaust victimhood, and lift the burden of guilt from Jewish youth who are psychologically tormented supposedly over latent grief over mistreatment of their ancestors in concentration camps." Or substituting for Trimble's other thoughts: "Yes, I do have memories of good times in concentration camps.....No, I had never witnessed any Jew in Auschwitz being beaten....” Would something like this be tolerated by our Jewish brothers and sisters? This one was published as an editorial in the most prominent Indian media outlet. And Trimble is honored by Indian nations for thoughts like these.
