"It may yet take an alchemy of Left and Right to confound the corporate center."
I came across this blog by accident. I agree that WWII has been overdone as the "Good War." Allied crimes such as Stalin's deportation of the Volga Germans and the Czech expulsion of the Sudeten Germans have almost no presence in American popular memory. This has real consequences for human rights today. Instead of judging acts we as a society instead judge victims and perpetrators depending on whether they are "politically correct." This is quite evident in the mainstream narrative of Palestine. Here the Israelis are always the good guys and the Arabs always the bad guys regardless of actions.
I forget if I've posted it here before, but I defend Charles Lindbergh on WW2 here.
Ha. So McConnell is basically saying, "Look, I don't necessarily think Pat is right on WWII and a lot of the staff feel that way. So we published this review."What a perfectly reasonable defense. But I guess he'll still be decried as a liberal appeaser by some.
