Sick! Pat Buchanan Bashes Bush & Defends Hitler
** Thanks to One Jerusalem for pointing this out today.
Not even Obama and the Democrats stooped this low…
Pat Buchanan bashed President Bush and praised Hitler at Town Hall in a weird take on Bush’s Knesset speech.
Buchanan blames Poland(?) for World War II:
Bush Plays the Hitler Card
Addressing the Knesset on the 60th anniversary of Israel’s birth, Bush said those who say we should negotiate with Iran or Hamas are like the fools who said we should negotiate with Adolf Hitler.
“As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared, ‘Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement. …”
Again, Bush has made a hash of history.
Appeasement is the name given to what Neville Chamberlain did at Munich in September 1938. Rather than fight Germany in another great war — to keep 3.5 million Germans under a Czech rule they despised — he agreed to their peaceful transfer to German rule. With these Germans went the lands their ancestors had lived upon for centuries, German Bohemia, or the Sudetenland.
Chamberlain’s negotiated deal with Hitler averted a European war — at the expense of the Czech nation. That was appeasement.
German tanks, however, did not roll into Poland until a year later, Sept. 1, 1939. Why did the tanks roll? Because Poland refused to negotiate over Danzig, a Baltic port of 350,000 that was 95 percent German and had been taken from Germany at the Paris peace conference of 1919, in violation of Wilson’s 14 Points and his principle of self-determination.
Hitler had not wanted war with Poland. He had wanted an alliance with Poland in his anti-Comintern pact against Joseph Stalin.
Obviously, Buchanan believes Hitler’s “peaceful” takeover of the Czech nation was a good thing.
That is pretty twisted.
There’s much more.
Earlier this year, Buchanan’s American Conservative played the Nazi card against Rudy Giuliani and colored him in as a storm trooper on the cover:
Charles Johnson wrote more on this stunt by Pat Buchanan at the time.
