    “If we go to the 1940s, Nazi Germany – look, we saw it in Britain. Neville Chamberlain told the British people: Accept the Nazis. Yes, they will dominate the continent of Europe, but that is not our problem. Let’s appease them. Why? Because it can’t be done. We cannot possibly stand against them,” Cruz said.
    .
    “I resoundingly reject that allegation. That allegation, in my view, does a great disservice. I do not agree with that comparison. I think it’s wrong,” McCain said on the Senate floor shortly after Cruz’s speech ended.

    McCain went on to say that Cruz had told him he was speaking only about talking heads, but McCain wasn’t buying it. “I find that a difference without a distinction. I find that something that I think I have to respond to,” McCain said.

    So he continued responding, saying in essence that to compare the two situations was pretty objectionable, considering. Left unsaid was the obvious point that as a war veteran and former POW, whose grandfather commanded US naval air forces at Guadalcanal and whose father captained a World War II sub in the Pacific, McCain does not think comparisons between the legislative process and Hitler should be made too easily.

    So since Obamacare is like Hitler we will be invading Poland and France as soon as it starts.

    Actually I resent anybody that makes such comparisons to anybody now being like Hitler was. The times: the late 1930’s through the middle 1940’s were entirely different, the men: Hitler and Chamberlain were also entirely different, and even the countries: England and Germany, were totally different than any exist today.

    Yes, it is true that Chamberlain was considerably naive and duped. But, I would ask the same ultra conservative right wing religious Christians types that always seem to condemn him, this: Have you ever actually bothered to even read the words of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ? Or what would Jesus say, let alone do?
    Perhaps they should try reading Matthew 5 (the beginning of The Sermon On The Mount), verse 9, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
    So I would say that Neville Chamberlain’s eternal soul (even naive and duped) has found a far more pleasant place to spend eternity, than the soul of the man who duped him: Adolph Hitler. That is, of course, if you are a true Christian that believes in a just God!!

    Read Churchill’s 1924 essay, “Shall we commit suicide?” He says that Britain had developed (but not deployed) new, much more toxic poison gasses against which gas masks were ineffective, and, if there was ever another war after the War to End all Wars, the new aeroplanes would drop such gasses over all the cities in Europe and completely depopulate the continent.


    It was top secret, so not in the primary sources, but Chamberlain was trying to develop a radar shield that would let the RAF stop German bombers, and was happy to tell Hitler that Britain didn’t want war, was not arming or making any preparations for war, and just wanted ‘Peace in our time.’


    Had Chamberlain gone to war in ‘38, there would have been no ’miracle at Dunkirk’, no radar shield, and the Battle of Britain would have been won by the Nazis.


    So, in ’38, Chamberlain bought the UK a vital year to complete their preparations for the war he knew was inevitable.

    Thank you Michael, that was very interesting. So, sometimes even while promoting peace for its own sake, you still do the right thing in helping to prepare for inevitable and unavoidable war. Once again, even in the piratical sense, the precepts of Christ still work out for the best!!

    oh, my God. Where to start? Cruz lied in about every statement. He thinks IRS agents will choose doctors! He doesn’t even understand the bill he pretends to not like. Watch your wallets, conservatives, you are marks. They will want money for these pointless exercises in self-aggrandizing.

    Wind it up and it doesn’t do anything for six years.

    I don’t view Cruz as Hitler.
    I am, however, beginning to believe that he’s the second coming of Joseph McCarthy. I wonder who’ll be the one to ask “At long last, Mr. Cruz, have you left no sense of decency?”.

    Too bad Cruz has nothing to say.

    “Who is speaking in defense of all Americans’ freedoms, even those who will not listen.”

    Any politician truly looking to defend Americans’ freedoms would have done so during the vote to continue the Patriot Act. Both political parties failed to protect our freedoms.

    Of course not. They only heard he quoted Green Eggs and Ham

    ANSONIA, you’re entirely right.

    And McCain did a disservice to Cruz by mischaracterizing the point he was making. I can’t wait for him to retire. (He and Reid should get a two-fer.)
