At Least We Never Used Chemical Weapons

White House press secretary Sean Spicer got in trouble for saying that Hitler, unlike Syrian president Assad, never used chemical weapons…on the battlefield. Which was true, even if he tonedeafly forgot to mention the use of Zyklon B and other poisons to gas Jews in death camps.

  1. Wait! Wait!

    Does the use of smallpox-laden blankets to infect the aboriginal populace count as a “chemical weapon”? Oh, of course not. That was biological warfare wasn’t it? Completely different.

    The USA is still the most honorable killer on the face of the earth. 🙁

    • Hey “CraztH”, At least we didn’t kill 6 million people because of their religion? Do you really want to start the “counting game”? – as far as who is more guilty = more evil? While Germany managed to kill most of their Jewish population, the country I live in now killed over 99% of their Jewish population, 99% – over 200,000 – Lithuanians, with the help and ‘support’ of Germany, started killing them before the Germans even arrived – hoping to garner favor, but then after a few years finally realized that the Germans thought of Lithuanians as an inferior race, and then invited Russia to “save’ them, and then, when Russia didn’t leave, finally realized that they were Lithuanians, an untrustworthy group of schizophrenic people that still have the highest rates of suicides, alcoholism and violent deaths in the entire EU. The country and its weather are fairly OK, but most of the people are definitely angry all the time and not ‘normal’.

      • Hey, rikster – my comment was meant sarcastically. I’m against mass murder for any reason, but religion is an especially stupid one.

      • No problem CrazyH, I didn’t understand that what you were saying was a joke, because there are still many people around the world that think ‘the Holocaust’ was a type of sunburn you could get on You’re’A’pee’in beaches.
        I especially enjoyed Sean Spicer’s inability to say concentration camps. Seriously, though, what kind of person can’t say the truth, or believes that if they repeat lies enough that it will become the truth?

        The POTUS. 🙂

        Somehow, I suspect that Mr Trump hardly finds that fact a hinder in his daily doings…. 😉


      • “The aide said that guys like me were “in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” … “That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”— attributed to Karl Rove, speaking to Suskind

      • @Glenn – I remember making those kinds of arguments back when I was in college. Of course, I was under the influence – whereas Dick (“Dick”) Cheney was merely under the influence of stupid.


  2. Ted, I hate to say this, but I think it’s hight time that you stopped picking on the Trump administration ! Why look what Michael Richard Pence has just accomplished – and without a shot fired !…


    PS : I wonder if my interlocutors on this thread who no doubt are more familiar with (nearly) current US culture than I can pretend to be could kindly inform me if Mr Pence learned to produce that steely gaze after watching Clint Eastwood in Per un pugno di dollari and practicing in the mirror….

  3. There are some very good reasons the United States does not submit to the International Criminal Court.

    The seven countries that voted against the treaty were China, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Qatar, the United States, and Yemen, all countries that violate international law—and would include the regime of Hitler, had it survived WWII.

    So there is that that the rogue, Exceptional Indispensable Nation has in common with Hitler’s regime.

  4. Exactly Ted, and the most amazing thing is that most of the American public listens to these lies and puts up with it! Of course, a lot of people yap and write about how crazy this $h1T is, but you don’t see many of our government ‘ofishals’ and representatives actually being held responsible in any significant manner. Yeah, it’s easy for you and me to sit behind a monitor and screech away about it, but what comes of it? Yeah, your black cards can make you money,
    So you hide them when you’re able.
    In the land of milk and honey,
    You must put them on the table.
    But no, we go back Jack, and do it again….. wheel turning round and round…
