Pat Buchanan Wouldn't Understand Morality If It Bit Him On The Arse
Pat Buchanan blames the Holocaust on Winston Churchill!
Well actually in the article quoted on that link he blames it on the British-Polish alliance. According to him we should never have signed that agreement and left the Poles to die just as we had to the Czechoslovkians.
Now firstly can I point out that Winston Churchill was not Prime Minister when WWII broke out. I know it's hard for some old, stupid American right wingers to study basic history but if he is going to write a book on the subject again can he please note the Prime Minister at the time was Neville Chamberlain. You remember him? Tall guy, wears silly hats, "Peace in our time"? Not ringing a bell? Shame.
We were reluctant to go to war and to suggest the situation with Poland (when we signed a treaty only on the eve of battle [ok... Phoney war!]) is similar to current NATO deals and the war in Iraq is to LIE through ones teeth or show a level of historical understanding on a par with a 3 year old.
Now some suggest in the comments on that page that he actually blames Churchill not capitulating after Dunkirk for the Holocaust. Now, no offense, but Winston's decision to call for a defense of this country at all costs turned out to be the right one. If we had capitulated then there would have just been even more victims for the Nazi death machine. Just look at the black book they had ready during Operation Sea Lion.
Mr Buchanan is one of those odious creatures that one does try to avoid, but when I read this interview I almost bashed in my computer screen in disgust. Winston Churchill had his faults but Pat Buchanan is not even worthy of comparison to the former Prime Minister. Makes me sick.
