After it was revealed that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been secretly on the take from a powerful GOP donor for more than two decades some details about Harlan Crow have resurfaced and they vary from deeply troubling to very strange.
Crow Collects Displays Nazi And Hitler Memorabilia
The Washingtonian noted that the Nazi stuff is randomly displayed around the estate with no context:
His collections caused an uproar back in 2015 when Marco Rubio attended a fundraiser at Crow’s house on the eve of Yom Kippur. Rubio’s critics thought the timing was inappropriate given, you know, the Hitler stuff.
“I still can’t get over the collection of Nazi memorabilia,” says one person who attended an event at Crow’s home a few years ago and asked to remain anonymous. “It would have been helpful to have someone explain the significance of all the items. Without that context, you sort of just gasp when you walk into the room.” One memorable aspect was the paintings: “something done by George W. Bush next to a Norman Rockwell next to one by Hitler.”
Rich people, just like everyone else can be weird.
Lots of people collect World War II memorabilia. This fact alone doesn’t make a person a Nazi. Displaying it in your house without any context will surely lead people to form some immediate ideas, and if this was all that there was, it might be explainable, but there is so much more.
