It is so disturbing to see who this administration idolizes.

Yes, but there's nothing quite so perversely satisfying as observing the spectacle of a barren old American feminist offering public honor to a bitter racist and eugenicist whose work in the 1920s and '30s inspired the Nazis.
We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH

These people. A "Medal of Freedom" award for what, exactly? The freedom to practice eugenics?

No, although she did speak to the women's version of the KKK once.  However, she was just one step away from being a Nazi.  While she thought the Nazis went too far in how their "processed" their eugenics theories (she didn't approve of concentration camp style mass murder), she wasn't opposed to their goal of ridding the world of "undesirables."
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton
