Posted on 06/04/2012 8:21:10 AM PDT by John Semmens
Press Secretary Jay Carney said the President will not be apologizing. The fact of the matter is that the most infamous of the death campsAuschwitz, for onewere located in Poland. These camps may have been run by the Nazis, but the Polish Government did nothing to stop them. Its long past the time that they should have acknowledged their role in that war atrocity.
if you missed any of this week's other semi-news posts you can find them at...
So Hussein is basically saying that he ‘stands’ by his remarks. Unbelievable!
Arrogant Dictators NEVER apologize. It is a sign of weakness.
Almost got me again. I wouldn’t even call the stuff you write semi-satire because it’s 1000% possible considering this POTUS.
Aaargh. Not news. Oops.
You are correct, this statement from the White House makes it worse! It's one thing to mis-speak and another to mis-state history. Kind of make you look STUPID!
"These camps may have been run by the Nazis, but the Polish Government did nothing to stop them."
The Government of the Republic of Poland in Exile, was the government in exile of Poland formed in the aftermath of the Invasion of Poland of September 1939, and the subsequent occupation of Poland by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, which brought to an end the Second Polish Republic founded in 1918.
You know Barry, it's difficult to stop the Death Camps when your government was forced to leave the country. So one question, since your government is still in the USA, what's your excuse for the mess we are facing?
More misguided satire.
“Fake but accurate.” Hold them to their own standards. It’s more fun that way.
“the Polish government did nothing to stop them” This is an incredibly ignorant statement by an American official. What Polish government is he referring to that was in existence during the German occupation during World War II. There simply was no “Polish” government representing the Polish people after the Nazi and Soviet invasions. It is beyond the pale that an American official would be so ignorant of history.
There’s quite a few Polish-Americans in this country (how about Chicago, for example). I wonder how many of them voted for the Kenyan last time and will not this time because of this issue?
It’s not real news which is why I asked for my #4 to be deleted.
The Won has never apologized for anything his entire life.
The sting of satire is truth.
“...the Polish Government did nothing to stop them.”
You stupid idiot. There was NO legitimate Polish government then.
