But Then Who Would Be The Whipping Boy?

Germany's ambassador to Great Britain has finally said the unspeakable -- WW2 is over; get over it. And it's high time. Over a half-century after the war ended -- and most involved are dead -- much of the world is still obsessed with the Third Reich. We doubt that a day goes by without the History Channel re-running yet another look inside the Hitler era. That alone would be bad enough, even if they did manage to get people to pronounce his first name correctly and/or acknowledge that only a minority of Germans ever belonged to the NSDAP.

Of course, one naturally wonders why anyone would be so obsessed with that period in history. It's not like it hasn't been studied to death; it has. But... has anyone learned anything from it? Unfortunately, apparently not.

But for most of 60 years, that particular period has served a very useful service for the Left: it provides a very handy boogyman with which to scare people into accepting Socialism. All they need to do is demonize anyone to the right of FDR as a "Nazi" or a "Fascist" and hold out Socialism -- under the guise of the "mainstream" -- to advance their "progressive" agenda. Where they're "progressing", of course, should be obvious. So far, it's worked pretty well.

As we've said on many occasions, however, Fascism and Socialism are two sides of the same counterfeit coin.

About bloody time, too.
All these politicians do is buy and sell people anymore. WW2 proved the idea was no johnny-come-lately. All that happened to eastern Europe is they got to trade fachism for communism with no say in the matter. Democracy?
Yeah, right!
