GOP senator lashes out: My brother didn’t die fighting Hitler so Nazi ideas could go unchallenged in U.S. 

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) condemned the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, that exploded on Saturday, saying that WWII veterans, including his brother, didn’t die fighting Adolph Hitler so that Nazi ideas could prevail in the United States today.“

We should call evil by its name. My brother didn’t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home. -OGH,” Hatch tweeted Saturday evening, signing it OGH to signify that he, not his staff, had written the message.

…Hatch was just 8 years old when his brother, 20-year-old Jesse, died when his B-24 bomber went down over Austria.

His brother’s death deeply affected the senator, and he has credited his older sibling for his life in public service.

The Utah senator’s comments came after white nationalist protests turned violent Saturday, leading to three deaths and multiple injuries.
