Caltrans and their PR MAN: Phil Frisbie JR Insensitive Nazi Holocaust Comments about protesters:
"And I surely hope none of them drive one of those Nazi VWs or a Porsche, or own any IBM products or stock (IBM supplied the computer equipment Hitler needed to catalog all the Jews rounded up and killed), or use Bayer products (they were in a partnership that manufactured the gas that killed many in the camps), and don't get me started with Siemens. . ." ~ This fine posting to the Bypass Open Discussion group (facebook) was made October 8 by Phil Frisbie Jr. Caltrans Public relations Officer for the Willits Bypass~ the original comments were deleted but were posted to Facebook page " Willits Tomorrow "

It may be insensitive but it’s blunt and valid point. If you’re going to raise a stink over that then you need to consider what you’re using and adjust accordingly to protest all parties that had anything to do with your cause, not just the convenient or easy targets. Otherwise you’re a bunch of hypocrites plain and simple.
