"there wasn’t much in the way of internal opposition to Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, or Mao. The German, Russian, Italian, and Chinese peoples were quite enthusiastic about the evil men and evil systems that ruled them."

oh really!

even with the most surface-level reading, Mao and Stalin came to power on the heels of massive civil wars, then there was Trotsky and all the purges and... I mean just what

Hey guys guess what Jews do not count as "German people." This has been today's moment in Ledeenistory.

From the comments:

"For a man who warmly embraces the likes of racist Professor Bell in public. . . "

It's almost mind-boggling to watch the echo chamber work in real time. I absolutely guarantee that the writer of this comment had never heard the name "Derrick Bell" one week ago.

My dear professor George Mosse would bellow from his grave if he thought I’d left the ranks of cultural historians.

I realize it’s a silly skit, but this is our culture. The comedy shows and the White House are on the same page.

Last week, in that “Religious Liberty: Obamacare’s First Casualty” video the Heritage Foundation put together, Representative Marsha Blackburn said, “The American people have been awakened to what this administration is doing. It will be a fight. And I believe it will be a worthy fight.”

I pray that’s true. But have they gotten the wake-up call? Has a majority? Or are we laughing as our country changes under our watch?

Culture is important but fewer and fewer people care about the direction we are going. I see no hint of a restoration of virtue. We will crash and burn.

A lot of progressives like to pretend that conservatives don't have a sense of humor (despite Steyn, Lileks, Long, O'Rourke, Goldberg, etc. just for a few examples

I look forward to Fartman's restored virtue, when he becomes Pootman.

The truth? The Obama administration all along has been captive to the cult of man-made global warming as expressed by Al Gore, and saw high fossil-fuel prices as a good thing in reducing their use and thus “cooling” the planet, while make subsidized wind, solar, and hybrid power competitive. Worse still, the Obama technocrats naively thought that changing habits, rather than recessionary times, had temporarily lowered demand and thus prices, and were completely caught off guard when a recovering global economy, expanding Chinese and Indian appetites, and unrest in the Middle East all sent oil futures skyrocketing. Had we opened up federal lands for drilling three years ago and encouraged the private sector to drill at breakneck speed as a matter both of national security and national financial solvency, we might well have had at least the expectation of 1–2 extra million barrels coming on line that would have dampened speculation.

I only just now caught that K-Lo column about the SNL skit, linked above. I think it is just wonderful that she saw fit to quote the entire skit, and that she seems so confident that her two, brief, not-very-insightful dismissals of it were more than enough to offset the impact of the skit she quotes!

This is like a person showing how harmless a knife is by grabbing the blade instead of the handle and lecturing you how a little blood never hurt anyone.
