Michael van der Galien

Watching “The Revolutionary Holocaust”

Posted on January 22 2010 5:09 pm
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

I absolutely love how Beck uses one of the Right’s leading intellectuals, Jonah Goldberg, to open this documentary with a bang: Adolph Hitler and the Nazis were leftists. They called themselves national socialists with good reason.

Quote of the first few minutes: “the nazis versus the communists was akin to Coca Cola versus Pepsi.” Heh.

“First brown, then red. The general understanding […] was that Nazism was the stepping stone to the victory of Socialism and Communism. Nazism and Socialism really were (and are) little brothers. The only difference is nazis’ obsession with race. Other than that, they’re exactly the same.

It’s quite brave of Goldberg and Beck to address these similarities, though. The mainstream   media will undoubtedly attack them even more ferociously after this documentary.
