A darker emblem looms over the heated conversation about a controversial American symbol. To hammer home how problematic the continued state-sanctioned tolerance of the Confederate battle flag is in parts of the United States, some have drawn comparisons to the infamous banner of Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany.
"It would be like having the swastika flag flying on your next-door neighbor," said Whoopi Goldberg, on ABC's The View on Monday. "If [the Confederate flag] continues to fly, the statement that’s being made … is that ‘We miss this really crappy part of history.'"
To be sure, Nazi Germany was a vastly different political entity than the Confederacy, and existed in a vastly different historical context.
