Who cares what FDR or Hitler did 70 years ago. He had a bunch of Jews working for him in his command yet he was killing Jews too. Obama has a bunch of Jews working for Him too. What difference does it make to the conservative Jews on FR?
I don't think Roosevelt was actually killing Jews, though he maybe could have done more to save some of them.
No, there were only a relatively few Jews at most in the upper echelons of the Roosevelt Administration. The most prominent was Henry Morganthau, his Treasury Secretary. Morganthau raised the question of Nazi persecution of European Jews with Roosevelt, but Roosevelt for the most part deferred to his decidedly antisemitic State Department on such issues, confident that they would largely be neglected.
Roosevelt secretly boasted, BTW, that as a prominent Harvard alum, he was influential in in establishing a severe quota system which worked to discriminate against Jews applying for admission to his alma mater. He seems to have grown up in an antisemitic milieu, which included his mother.
It turns out that Herbert Hoover, throughout his long life, had a much better record on Jewish issues than did Roosevelt.
” He had a bunch of Jews working for him in his command yet he was killing Jews too.”
Sorry. No great fan of FDR, but he did not kill a single Jew. He neglected to save Jews, might have been anti-Semitic himself, but let’s make a clear distinction here between acquiescing to the evils done outside of the US borders and committing those evils himself. He did not lift a hand to save Jews outside the United States, but that is not murder, just neglect to save. The British pressured neutral countries to refuse to receive Jewish refugees, for fear they would end up in Israel (see Struma for most egregious example). That was considerably worse than FDR, but still not murder. Who were the murderers? Germany and its direct collaborators. Stalin for what he did to the Jewish partisans. Period. End of story.
