The Washington Post recently published an ‘article’ that decried the victory achieved in WWII because anti-Nazi wasn’t the same as being ‘anti-racist.’
The highly leftist publication is now supporting the idea that these men who fought to destroy the socialist regime were ‘racists’ so their efforts ‘failed.’
The article by a foaming-at-the-mouth lib named John Broich — who claims to be a teacher at Case Western Reserve University — noted that the Allied Forces were responsible for attacking Nazism, but added that the Allies were really “just like” the Nazis.
Bottom of Form
“Because while Allied countries opposed the Nazis and Allied troops defeated them, the leaders of the United States and Britain rarely attacked the core tenet of Nazism: the belief in a master race,” this ahistorical “teacher,” wrote.
In my World War II class recently, I had my students pore through the speeches and letters of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill from the years around the war’s start in 1939, searching for his basis for opposing the Nazis.
They found Churchill wanted to stand up to the Nazis’ expansionism, fight their anti-democracy posture and resist what he called (but largely left undefined) their anti-Christianity. What he did not do, however, was call for the destruction of the essence of Nazism: race supremacy.
Instead of fighting to crush the idea that purified nations could abuse, enslave or even eliminate people deemed lesser, Roosevelt used words similar to Churchill’s to frame the war as a resistance against “the forces of savagery and of barbarism.”
Basically, Broich says that despite defeating the Third Reich — the evilest regime in human history — that tremendous moral success doesn’t matter because the Allies were all still racists.
Because the world wasn’t as “woke” in 1945 as it is now, the great victory over Hitler is meaningless.
This is the moral vacancy of liberalism.
Moreover, where is Broich’s outrage over CURRENT beliefs of radical Islamists who use savagery and barbarism to carry out their caliphate against people they deem ‘lesser?’
What about the Washington Post’s lies about President Trump… isn’t that exactly like the Nazi propaganda machine?
This is the sort of trash the Washington Post approves?
If a man like this, so deranged and ignorant about the real struggle that occurred during WWII, is teaching young adults, what hope is there for the ideal of freedom?
