    But where is the evidence that Adolf Hitler, whose victims as of March 1939 were a fraction of Gen. Pinochet’s, or Fidel Castro’s, was out to conquer the world?

    I think it was when he said "Today Germany, tomorrow the world" that we got the kooky idea that he wanted to conquer the whole world.  Silly us...

    Nauseating.  Buchanan has a long and sordid history of pro-Nazi revisionism, but he's truly outdone himself.  Not only is he saying that Hitler didn't actually want to conquer the rest of the world, he's also blaming America and the allies for the fact that the war lasted longer than 1940 and in the process implicitly trying to shift blame for the Holocaust to America and the allies as well.  This is no better than Holocaust denial.

      Hitler wanted to do was to wander through the forest singing happy German songs, and, all day long, paint landscapes and portraits with his unique lack of feeling.

      That's all. I'm pretty sure it was the Blacks and Latinos in the US, mostly immigrants, who forced Hitler's hand.

      Oh, and the Gays and Liberals.

        Hitler was just a frustrated artist.  If the elitist liberal art establishment had just given his paintings the attention and praise they deserved, the Holocaust would never have taken place.

        What's really fucked up is, that's supposed to be snark, but it actually sounds like something that Buchanan would literally say, if he hasn't in fact already said it.

          You can imagine the substitute, though, for "liberal art establishment" that they use.
