Obama Repeats Auschwitz Gaffe on Memorial Day

Evidently, Reverend Wright is not Obama’s only crazy uncle

Ace of Spades and HotAir reported today on Obama’s other gaffe from Memorial Day.
During his talk yesterday in New Mexico, Obama talked about another crazy uncle:

…Obama also spoke about his uncle, who was part of the American brigade that helped to liberate Auschwitz…

This uncle must have truly been crazy and not just an America-hater like Wright
Since Auschwitz was freed by the Russians and not the Americans.

It’s not the first time Obama made that gaffe:

Barack Obama spoke about Auschwitz back in 2002 in his speech against the Iraq War:

My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Patton’s army. He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil, and he did not fight in vain. I don’t oppose all wars.

Newsmax reported on this back in April:

All this would be great if it weren’t pure fiction. For starters, the Nazis destroyed the Treblinka death camp in 1943 after shooting the last prisoners, a group of Jewish girls.

Then there is the problem of the locations of Treblinka and Auschwitz. Both Nazi death camps were located inside Poland. Thus, no American troops ever entered the camps until years after the war was over.

Auschwitz was taken by the Soviet Union after the Nazis evacuated most of the prisoners. The retreating Nazis left those too weak or sick to walk behind. The 322nd Rifle Division of the Red Army liberated them on Jan. 27 1945.

So, it’s not the first time he talked about US soldiers at Auschwitz.
It’s just the first time he mentioned that his crazy uncle was there.

UPDATE: Obama now says it was his great-uncle not his uncle and it was Buchenwald not Auschwitz.
Of course.
