If the quote was fine, in context, why apologize?Apparently this all started with someone quoting Hitler:
“He alone who owns the youth gains the future.”French is a Christian who had to repudiate his LGBTQ views in order to get a job at the NY Times.
I do not think that anyone is actually offended by quoting Hitler. All famous people get quoted. Jews raise issues like this just to prove that they can control what you say.
To answer his question, there is nothing wrong with quoting Hitler. But if the Jews at the NY Times say you are not allowed to quote Hitler, then it is easier to apologize than to explain it to them.
