THE WAY I SEE IT
By Michael Collins
.Some might ask, “What were they thinking?” Others would dismiss it as no more than old-fashioned “chutzpah,” a Yiddish term (now part of the popular vernacular) that means shameless audacity. But — now back in print, after having gone out of business for a time — Newsweek bared its colors when, on Aug. 15 — right in the middle of Israel’s genocidal assault on the Christians and Muslims of Gaza — the magazine had a cover story entitled “Killing Hitler,” explaining that “the offspring of the failed assassins [of Hitler] endured generations of persecution.”
While the cover featured a large (and bizarre) illustration of a snarling, blue-faced Adolf Hitler crushing a group of his opponents, the article inside was sprawled over eight pages littered with illustrations placed there to make up for what was lacking in the content of the story itself.
Right up front, the readers got the most “sensational” report of all: The child of one of those who plotted the bungled attempt against Hitler on July 20, 1944 had spent his life tormented by the memory of how, once, when his mother was called to the school because he and his siblings were getting bad grades, a teacher said it was no wonder he was bad in math since, after all, his father had been a “traitor.”
That’s as exciting as the article gets, despite the promised record of “generations of persecution.”
The article wasn’t even published on the anniversary of the vaunted July 20 conspiracy — the subject of multiple films, books and other propaganda — but a month afterward. Newsweek’s understanding of “news” is clearly lacking.
So if you haven’t gotten the point by now, let it again be said that while the much-touted “Jewish state” — always said to have “risen from the ashes of the Holocaust” — was conducting a bloodbath in Gaza, Newsweek decided to elevate the tale of this mathematically challenged student to the stuff of genocidal legend.
While the reader may have thought this anecdote was the opening gun in an extended exposition of how descendants of Hitler’s opponents were subjected to untold abuse, the truth is the balance of the article largely rehashed the July 20 plot with no evidence of how anyone was mistreated in the postwar years.
It’s just “more Hitler,” or a calculated way to redirect focus from what Israel is doing this very day in the Holy Land.
Sadly, too many self-described patriots engage in the same rhetoric, constantly yakking about Hitler and his alleged misdeeds, many of which have been thoroughly refuted by serious researchers not colored by political correctness.
Patriots need to stop parroting nonsense. For the facts, they have AFP and THE BARNES REVIEW — whether about Hitler or any other matter. The truth may be different from what you heard on the Internet, but it’s the truth.
