The Schiffs and Warburgs had put money on both sides.
Tragic. But the Lord had other plans.
One of the best political cartoons I’ve ever seen was in 1992 when Pat was running for President. It depicted him giving a speech with the caption ‘Mein Kampaign’.
Hitler was willing to let the Jews emigrate to Palestine, but the Brits didn't want to upset the Arabs
You folks might be interested in chiming in. Who knew that British foreign policy was responsible for the Holocaust? Who knew that Hitler DIDN’T really mention the final solution in 1935 as I had been taught years ago! Pat has ENLIGHTENED ME! ;-)
Just another failed politician carving out a niche for himself. Al Gore’s got environmentalism. Pat’s got pro-Nazi historical revisionism. Hey, even Pat’s got bills to pay. Might as well do something you love!
“Pat rewrites history again. Britain didnt lose her empire because of the world war.”
If Pat had been a lying writer during WWII, he probably would have been rounded by Israel as a Nazi supporter or worse.
Hitler knew the history of Napolean in Russia and accordingly planned his invasion for an earlier kickoff but got bogged down trying to bail out his hopeles Italian ally. He probably convinced himself that with a mechanized army the results would be different.
He’s regularily published by conservative sites like Townhall and World Net Daily. Though the latter can’t really be called Conservative. I don’t know what the hell it is really.
I try to like Pat but he just makes it so damn hard.
He’s right about a lot of things but when he misses, he really misses.
The Holocaust is a losing issue for him. He doesn’t know near as much as he thinks he knows so he should just keep his damn mouth shut on this issue. I think this one issue has ruined him, politically.
At some point the remaining John Birchers will die off, and Pat will be out of business. But I agree, he's a useful idiot for the left. I almost think he does it on purpose, out of spite for being rejected.
Take those two sentences and dissect them.
I agree that the extermination of Jews and others was not a cause of the war.
And in some cases, it was a consequence of the war in occupied lands....maybe....France, Italy, the Balkans , the USSR admittedly...over a million Jews I think etc.
But most of the victims came from Poland and Germany-Austria which would have happened even without a “World War”....neither a cause or consequence of the broader war but would have happened anyway after the Poland invasion.
So Pay is only partly right and in whole wrong.
For someone who is on occasion quite astute, he is very wrong on some key matters.
Why on earth does Pat think France and England should have just sat on their hands after Poland was invaded?
Where Hitler really screwed up was declaring war on the US and breaking his peace with Russia too early.
Pat takes too much liberty with the fact that most Jews and others were killed after 1940.
Pat has no staying power. That’s why he is always trying to re-invent himself. He’s a whiner.
He said it again on the Howie Carr Show. He is nuts. He blamed Poland for the war as well. All Hitler wanted was Danzig he said.
10 years WFB and National Review read Pat Buchanan out of mainstream conservatism due to his nascent anti-semitism.
I wonder if it is too late for Pat to file papers to run for the Presidency in Iran?
It seems he would be a shoe in.
It's easy to get into Russia. It's hard to get out.
