A Kentucky white father thought it was a good idea to dress his 5-year-old son up as Adolf Hitler — until he was hit with backlash and ended up apologizing.
Bryant Goldbach and his racist son dressed up in Nazi costumes at a trick-or-treat event, according to WEHT.
When Goldbach arrived at the Owensboro’s Trail of Treats event with his son, he was confronted with derogatory remarks and threats.
“Anyone who knows that we love history, and often dress the part of historical figures,” Goldbach wrote in his defense on Facebook. “Yes liberalism is alive and well. And we had the displeasure of dealing with the fruits of the so called 'Tolerant Left.’”
He shared the now-viral photo on Facebook, which caused more criticism and prompted his apology.
“I think it was in bad taste for me to let my child to wear that, probably for me to wear that. It didn't occur to me. I thought it was a bad decision on my part," the white terrorist told The Owensboro Times.
The nazi understands people are mad, but he requested people to “please leave my family alone.”
Prior to his apology, his Facebook showed slogans saying “White pride doesn’t mean hate” and “Being liberal means being a hypocrite.”
Rabbi Gary Mazo of Temple Adath B’nai Israel called the father’s actions “a sad reflection of our society.”
“A good rule of thumb would be: If your costume calls to mind an event where millions were killed, choose another costume,” Mazo said in a statement.
