Charles Krauthammer: All Roads Lead to Hitler

Brendan Nyhan noticed that Charles Krauthammer loves to liken all things to Hitler. Krauthammer can't decide if China, Russia, North Korea or Iran will be the next Nazi Germany. Rumsfeld is running with a quote Krauthammer has used several times.


“Lord, if only I had talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided!”


Karen Kwiatkowski worked in the now-defunct Office of Special Plans. She noted how the neoconservative crowd stays on message.


I suspected, from reading Charles Krauthammer, a neoconservative columnist for the Washington Post, and the Weekly Standard, and hearing a Cheney speech or two, that these talking points left the building on occasion.


You can play six degrees of separation with the neocons and find that they all know one another. Dick Cheney presented Krauthammer with the Irving Kristol Award. The question you are now asking is who the hell is Irving Kristol.


Irving Kristol (born January 22, 1920, New York City) is considered the founder of American neoconservatism. He is married to conservative author and emeritus professor Gertrude Himmelfarb, and is the father of William Kristol. He describes himself as a "liberal mugged by reality".


His son is Bill Kristol. Who edits the neoconservative Bible The Weekly Standard. A publication that has advocated for military force against Iraq for years. Irving Kristol was award a Medal of Freedom in 2002 by President Bush.

Fascism has also become another neoconservative talking point. Watch the CNN video.
