Please explain to me why anyone outside of Stormfront and other neo-Nazi groups still takes this leftover America-Firster creep seriously:
That Hitler was a rabid anti-Semite is undeniable. "Mein Kampf" is saturated in anti-Semitism. The Nuremberg Laws confirm it. But for the six years before Britain declared war, there was no Holocaust, and for two years after the war began, there was no Holocaust.
Not until midwinter 1942 was the Wannsee Conference held, where the Final Solution was on the table.
That conference was not convened until Hitler had been halted in Russia, was at war with America and sensed doom was inevitable. Then the trains began to roll.
And why did Hitler invade Russia? This writer quotes Hitler 10 times as saying that only by knocking out Russia could he convince Britain it could not win and must end the war.
Hitchens mocks this view, invoking the Hitler-madman theory.
"Could we have a better definition of derangement and megalomania than the case of a dictator who overrules his own generals and invades Russia in wintertime … ?"
Christopher, Hitler invaded Russia on June 22.
The Holocaust was not a cause of the war, but a consequence of the war. No war, no Holocaust.
In other words, the Holocaust was the fault of the British and (later) the Americans for attacking Germany. If only Britain hadn’t pushed Hitler into a corner, Auschwitz and Buchenwald wouldn’t have happened. This garbage so misrepresents the truth that it’s hard to know where to start in order to shred it, but here’s one damned good try.
And how can Townhall carry this nonsense? This isn’t conservative: it’s anti-historical revisionist filth. They should be ashamed.
