Mourdock’s valid points are being misrepresented

I am so discouraged with the comments from Mike Murphy, Marion County Republican delegate, pertaining to Richard Mourdock's comments on the comparison of economic conditions of 1936 Germany and 2014 U.S.A. (June 8).

If Murphy were more familiar with history, he would have immediately made the connection that Mourdock was pointing out between the Nazi Party and economics that duped the German people into voting for Adolf Hitler – which was what Mourdock was referencing. The Republican Party and all of America needs to go back and study history and bring it forward to today, if it ever hopes to turn this tide.

For Murphy to mock someone who has the respect of many in the Republican Party shows that if the party doesn't start pushing back against the outright misrepresentation by the media, it could be in for a dry spell. Mourdock's reminder was very timely as he was cautioning voters to learn from history so that the world would never again have to experience another D-Day. It's Murphy who must go away and come back after he has studied history.
