We need to get out and vote this year or USA Republicans will lose majority in Congress and Trump will be impeached.

Julius Streicher (12 February 1885 – 16 October 1946) was a prominent member of the National Socialist German Worker's Party (NSDAP) prior to World War II. He was the founder and publisher of the newspaper Der Stürmer, which was the alternative media of his day. His publishing firm also released three books for children, including the 1938 Der Giftpilz (translated into English as The Toadstool or The Poisonous Mushroom, which warned about dangers Jews posed by using the metaphor of an attractive yet deadly mushroom.

Julius Streicher on October 16, 1946

After the war, the Allies of World War II captured him and tortured him. During the Nuremburg trials, he complained that his jailers had tortured him. The wards spat into his mouth, beat him with knout, burned cigarettes on his nipples, imprinted their fingers into his eyes, extracted his brow-hair and breast-hair, beat his testicles with a club, and he became almost deaf due to the tortures. The torturers then took away all his clothes and gave him only a a wet jacket in February of 2016. For reasons that remain unclear today, all of his comments on this issue were erased from the official protocol. The "court" treated as an "offense against the court" the fact, that he spoke about the tortures. But on the audiotape of the Streitcher's trial these comments are present. While in prison, he wrote Julius Streicher's Political Testament.
