Seattle Times Defends Adolph Hitler

While most Democrats went ballistic over George Bush's presumed criticism of Barack Obama, the Seattle Times went one better, and defended Adolph Hitler.

What Hitler was demanding at Munich was not unreasonable as a national claim (though he was making it in a last-minute, unreasonable way.) Germany's claim was that the areas of Europe that spoke German and thought of themselves as German be under German authority. In September 1938 the principal remaining area was the Sudetenland.

So the British and French let him have it.

In a way, I'm okay with this. If the Seattle Times wants to join George Bush and me in equating Barack Obama with Neville Chamberlain, I welcome them to the club.

So all this Bruce guy does is confirm what Edmund Burke said: The only thing necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing. I think it's pretty clear who the good men are, and who the bad are.

But of course, you can't say things like that anymore...
