The Holocaust Revisited: MacConnell on Buchanan

Michael MacConnell has an excellent article in today’s The Australian Conservative rebutting Pat Buchanan’s peculiar assertion that the Holocaust would not have occurred if Great Britain had been nicer to Hitler.   MacConnell does a thorough historical deconstruction of Buchanan’s pseudo-ideas, but it all comes down to this succinct sentence: “Buchanan seems unable to recognise in Hitler a supreme sociopathic murderer.” Indeed.

Regarding Pat, It should be no surprise that I think him insane and bigoted (same thing, really).  So you can factor that into my appraisal of MacConnell’s piece.
