OPINION | Bill OíReilly: Trumpís real failure is not understanding the evils of Nazism
The Hill ^ | 8/21/17 | BillOreilly

Posted on 08/22/2017 12:08:55 PM PDT by EdnaMode

Lost in the intense debate over Charlottesville is a very important lesson that all Americans should learn. It has nothing to do with American politics or ideology. It has everything to do with history.

I have written three books about World War II and am currently researching a fourth. I can tell you with certainty that most people on this planet have no clue as to how German Nazis went about their lethal business. And that includes President Trump and many other politicians both present and past.

Exceptions are the Jewish people who directly experienced genocide at the hands of the Third Reich. In most Jewish homes around the world, the gruesome German atrocities are discussed and children are taught what happened in detail.

But in many American public schools, World War II and Nazism is barely mentioned. Adolph Hitler has become a caricature of evil, a distant monster.

He should be as vivid as today's sunrise.

The historical context of the Charlottesville reaction is that mass murder was carried out by ordinary Germans while the vast majority of that population looked away out of self-interest and fear. And these folks weren't from another planet. Did you know that German Americans comprise the largest ethnic group in this country?

I think Trump understands how evil Nazis, Communists, and other murderous ideologies are just fine. Hence the fact that condemned all sides.

Also, what I don't understand is that if there was such a large movement of Nazis and White Supremacists in this country, why wasn't this issue during the 8 years Obama was President? Why is this suddenly such an issue after Charlottesville?

Your real failure is thinking you can rub someone’s privates with a gooey middle eastern sandwich.

Bill’s real failure is not understanding Trump.

Does Bill for one moment think Trump doesn’t detest NAZIism?

What a dumb ass.

He understands. His critics’ failure is in not understanding that marauding Communist thugs are just as bad as marauding Nazi thugs. This was the president’s position. I don’t see what could possibly be wrong with it.

LOL. Do I really want to know what you're referring to?

Answer: I do not.

I was actually stating to miss Ted Baxter. I am reminded again by his virtue signaling of what a stupid POS he really is.

O’Reilly “writes” about four books a year on “scholarly” topics so, of course, he is an expert. Thanks, Bill. I had no idea about Hitler and the Nazis.

Trump love Putin, yeah right..
Trump loves Nazis, yeah right..
But
Obama’s real failure was not understanding the evils of Islam. Trump understands that, and he also understands the evils of Liberals, and that's more important.
