  1. This photo is very much in the same, mmm nature of topic, as the photo of Charles Lindbergh seated at a table with Nazis and with the Nazi flag hanging behind the table.

    Didn’t find the pic, though the collection of Lindbergh images on google have plenty showing his inclination toward being a Nazi. However, here’s this:

  2. The current strains between Germany and Turkey concerning the Armenian genocide are signs that the creeks and cracks of multiculturalism are widening to a point where they are so glaringly obvious.

    Germany will feel that its complicity in the matter has now been admitted and acknowledged. They want to put matters right, but at the same time angered Turkey.

    Turkey is up to its usual whataboutery technique of deflection continues to deny doing any wrongdoings.

    My guess is the two countries are going to start a cold war against each other, perhaps this will be a blessing in disguise for the indigenous Germans – the Turks will no longer be trusted by their government. This long alliance is now turning sour and I won’t be surprised if war breaks out between Turkey and Germany (and logically all other white European nations). This Armenian vote might actually be the spark that lights the big war that has been smoldering for decades.

  3. In “defence” of Lindbergh, I can say that he had plenty of company . . . large numbers of easily deluded people who thought that the “nice young man” who is chancellor will be great for Germany and the world. There were even larger hordes – and their number remains large – who held similar sentiments on the subject of Lenin’s Revolution and his resolute successor, Uncle Joe. In 1981, John Reed was “sympathetically portrayed” in a movie.

    With hindsight, it is amazing how many Americans ALWAYS knew that the Nazis were no good . . . after war was declared. They were fortunate in that their sentiments were not public record, like Lindbergh’s. A similar thing happened in France: In 1946 EVERY Frenchman had been in the Resistance, and a collaborator was some anonymous, creepy neighbour who had moved away.

    Perhaps, one day, there will be a large number of free people who look back with clarity and conviction on the evil of Islam. I fear the dreadful price that will have been paid before humanity reaches that day.

    • I believe that Mr Ford, he of the famous motor car fame, was similarly enthralled by the Nazis, in fact the company continued trade before and during WW11, his products being traded under German licences.
      Also let us not forget that a lot of current German mega manufacturers initially gained an advantage in growth from the use of slave labour (that is people worked to death to a carefully calculated economic equation) which is not PC to discuss or mention in “polite” conversation these days.

      • Indeed, Henry Ford had a photo of Hitler on his desk.

        After Pearl Harbor, Lindbergh was rejected for service as a volunteer pilot, and only Ford would employ him as a civilian advisor, yet he did valuable work as a test pilot. In 1944, still a civilian, he flew missions on P-38 Lightnings and F4U Corsairs against the Japanese.

      • We have been much more careful to not criticize the Japanese for their atrocities in WWII than we have the Germans. This, when in fact the Japanese were more brutal than the Germans. Not a contest I would care to win.

        Similar to how the Russians have been protected in the telling of history by American historians. Except for Diana West, although she really drew the curtain back on the American left, who has been excoriated by both left and right for truth telling. American Betrayal is in the queue.

        There is always more to learn about the past. And I have a stack of worthwhile but unread books. I’ll have some time off the grid this summer, that’s how I got my leg over Atlas Shrugged.

        • When he was in high school, I tried to talk our son into reading an Ayn Rand book. Some Objectivist group was offering scholarship money for the winning essay, and since he liked to read about political theory to some extent (and is an excellent writer), I thought he stood a good chance. Now I can’t remember which books I brought home from the library. Whatever it was – I think it was “Atlas Shrugged” he read several chapters. Suddenly the book appeared back on the kitchen table, its bearer wearing a deep frown.

          He told me the book was naive,full of black-and-white thinking and even worse dialogue. I had him read some of it to me, and understood why he couldn’t write that essay. I never thought I’d be linking a Salon essay here, but this one explains my/our objections to Rand’s political/cultural philosophy:
