Every now and then Pat Buchanan wakes up and decides to defend Hitler. Like Actual Hitler not just Synonym Hitler (Barack Obama). Today is just such a day! Well, this new column is tied to the the extremely important and memorable 70th anniversary of Britain declaring its official involvement in WWII. (By the way if you’re thinking of doing something special, the traditional gift for 70 years is a bomb shelter… or possibly amethyst.) And speaking of Britain, why did Britain force Hitler to participate in the war and refuse his many sincere peace offerings? Why were they being such, like, Nazis about it? It’s a good question to ask, of History! And Pat Buchanan has the most retarded answers this side of AP Euro.
Ahh, sorry, this was misleading. What was meant by “answers” was “grossly mischaracterized rhetorical questions seemingly culled at random from various sections of the WWII Wiki”:
Why, when Paris fell, did Hitler not demand the French fleet, as the Allies demanded and got the Kaiser’s fleet? Why did he not demand bases in French-controlled Syria to attack Suez? Why did he beg Benito Mussolini not to attack Greece?
Because Hitler wanted to end the war in 1940, almost two years before the trains began to roll to the camps.
Haha Pat Buchanan.
