By the way, I notice you have studiously avoided the Catholic question. You can’t acknowledge Pacelli or Pius XI, because your whole argument would fall apart. Will you accuse the Catholic Church of being a warmonger, because they were way out in front of Churchill in identifying Nazi Germany. Pius XI called Hitler, “an insane and arrogant prophet,” although the phrase was probably written by Pius XII. Pacelli was in Germany since 1917, and saw Hitler first hand. He obviously didn’t agree that Hitler just wanted a little German territory and he would go away. Meanwhile, he was suppressing the Catholic Church in Germany.
“By the way, I notice you have studiously avoided the Catholic question.”
The only “Catholic question” you have created is your argument that Buchanan said in his book that Hitler should have kidnapped the Pope, which you later admitted was a straw man, and then that Buchanan is “anti-Catholic” even though Buchanan himself is not only a Catholic but a Catholic traditionalist and has always consistently defended the Catholic Church like in his recent column.
As for Poland, it was Winston Churchill who gave away Poland to Stalin along with the rest of Eastern Europe at the Yalta conference, where he was joined by his pal FDR who would do anything to appease “Uncle Joe” because his own administration was full of a communist infiltrators.
