Walking with Superman: Day 35

There's a rally outside the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., where a crowd of Neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers have gathered to voice their opinions. Clark Kent observes, interviewing individual rally attendees and members of the nearby counter-protest, trying to understand what would cause so many people to deny the obvious and hate so passionately. When the gathering turns violent, Superman steps in to defuse the situation, but the problem only escalates when one of the rally attendees turns out to be a World War II survivor--Captain Nazi! Superman goes head-to-head against the symbol of Aryan superiority, but the real battle is the one waged by the Daily Planet against the bigots and revisionists. The Fourth Estate takes on the Third Reich with the power of the First Amendment, and a lone reporter proves that Fascist propaganda has nothing on Truth, Justice, and the American Way.
