Facts are Hitler no matter the monster he became did do some good things for Germany and he did love his people and was a patriot to them - before he
became a monster. This is a fact even Springer can't cover up and hide. ( he has a thread detailing how it's not proper to talk about Hitler as

with a bullet to the head ( at least on my original 1972 copy) . The poems are about how many in the black community saw how MLK's policies were
causing more harm to the black communities than good. They feel this is why he was killed.
