Hitler quotes in yearbook prompt apology

NORTHPORT, New York (AP) — Two high school seniors picked quotations from Adolf Hitler's book "Mein Kampf" to appear under their high school yearbook pictures, prompting school officials to apologize.
The quotes were picked by Christopher Koulermos and Philip Compton, both 18. Koulermos' read "Strength lies not in defense, but in attack." Compton chose "The great masses of people … will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one."
What is wrong with those quotes? The last one holds true today in America. Look at the big lies that the President tells and the great masses of people that fall for those big lies. It does not matter where the quote comes from or who said it, it is the one who uses it for something other than what it means that should be looked at.
