The Hitler excuse

My latest at Medium. In reality, regime-changers are as bad as racists, sexists, and homophobes.

Your child is bullied at school for being a “sissy.” Your sister was murdered for being trans-gendered. You find out your salary is thousands less than a male counterpart for doing essentially the same job. Your brother-in-law was shot by cops for the crime of driving while black. 
All of that is terrible. I can’t downplay it. 
I also can’t downplay when someone in another country is starved because of U.S. sanctions. Or murdered by drone strike for the “crime” of trying to survive under a dictator whose interests don’t jibe with American politicians. Just like women, minorities, and gays, these victims deserve a voice.
3-minute read.
