Toward the end of his Blaze Radio show Saturday, Buck Sexton received a phone call from a nearly 84-year-old woman who he said gave “one of the most compelling calls I’ve ever heard on any radio show.”
Irma lives in Massachusetts today, but she was born in 1930 under German fascism. She said her father battled tyranny for years, culminating with his imprisonment under the Nazis and another stint behind bars “under the worst conditions” after communism took over in then-East Germany.
“He had his ideas and he wouldn’t bend to them,” she told Sexton in a strong German accent, her voice breaking at times. “He did everything he could to prevent them from coming into power.”
Sexton underscored to Irma how important her story was to share with listeners, most notably how “progressivism and fascism come from the same ideological root.”
