This man was the one who raped that German immigrant woman, Madge (forgot her last name). He hated immigrants. He was a piece of crap. Leave it to a Scottish Lowlander to conquer, loot, steal and murder. Hitler did lots of good for everyone in his country. Stephenson only loved Lutheran Protestants. As we know the Scots-Irish are descended from the Germanic tribes, so it's no wonder. It's in the culture to be bigoted. I think Stephenson should be a name of evil, not Hitler.
It's simply a traditional name. If someone is the son of Stephen, Then they should have the right to have the name of Stephenson. One man doesn't define a name (excluding world leaders as far as i'm concerned). If he did some evil, Then that's not justifiable for not having the same last name as him. What if someone had the last name of "Bundy", Or the last name of "Laden"? Would their names be politically incorrect?
