Marco Rubio spent Yom Kippur with a wealthy donor in Florida who has an incredible art and literature collection, spanning hundreds of years, with works by some of the greatest artistic – and political – figures in history, including Claude Monet, Winston Churchill, Auguste Renoir, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Adolf Hitler. The collection spans an entire wing of his mansion, employs two librarians (one full-time and one part-time), cost millions to maintain, and operates, generally, as a museum.
So naturally, Marco Rubio stepping foot into the house – not the museum wing but the house itself – means he’s a Nazi sympathizer. According to Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC, at least, that is.
Be careful, everyone. Next time you step into a library with a copy of Mein Kampf, you, too, could be mistaken for a Nazi. Heaven forbid they also have a couple of his tablecloths.
I am, obviously, not trying to belittle the concern. If it really were the case that Rubio was palling around with Nazi sympathizers, it would be of great concern. But while the DNC looked the other way when Barack Obama described his formative political moments in living room of a confessed domestic terrorist, they seem to be embellishing the truth about Marco Rubio’s steak dinner in Hitler’s bunker just a little bit. Mediaite even dragged up this story about the Harlan Crow mansion from several years ago, extolling the massive, private collection’s impact on historical preservation, especially where important political figures are concerned. Crow says outright that his collection is not intended to celebrate the lives of dictators and fascists, but to make certain that that part of world history is preserved.
Crow is also the child of someone who was nearly killed by the Nazis, for that matter.
Of course, this really doesn’t matter when it comes to Marco Rubio. Much of what’s out there about the potential Presidential nominee is heavily embellished. Moderately-sized boats, mid-range refrigerators, student loans and traffic tickets – he’s clearly one of the worst human beings of all time.
