Cong. Ferguson Inadvertently Honors Nazi “Heroes”

In a since-deleted tweet, Congressman Ferguson’s social media team screwed up royally. (And likely lost at least one team member).

What’s also an indictment on the good congressman’s office is that in five-and-a-half hours since the tweet was published, they haven’t managed to figure out how to design a new photo.

Oops.

My guess is it was a millennial. Anyone over 50 would readily recognize the helmets as German, WWII being fodder for a multitude of motion pictures being made into the 1970’s, Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-in and Hogan’s Heroes on TV.

With you that some in GenX never fully engaged in the digital world, but I don’t get the cultural ignorance part. Now, if you’re saying that someone in GenX might say somethin like “I just don’t give a F*”, I might go along with it, but that’s counter-cultural not ignorant. Regardless of age, if the graphic isn’t replaced, it’s really more about the Congressman’s office not giving…
any importance to the meaning of their words.
