Munich, Germany, November 8-9, 1923: The Beer Hall Putsch was a failed coup by Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler, his entourage and other Nationalists against the Weimar Republic. Hitler plotted to kidnap the Bavarian commissioner at a beer hall on the first night of the putsch. Some 2,000 Nazis marched on the city centre, hoping to establish a headquarters there, but were confronted by military police. Sixteen Nazi Party members and four police officers were killed. Hitler was arrested and tried for treason, and he and his nationalist and anti-semitic views came to the attention of the world. He dictated Mein Kampf while in prison, and set a course to gain power by political means rather than force. The rest is dark, brutal history.
I post this here for those who think/hope/pray that Trump and the white supremacist movement will soon go away . . .
