WashPost: WWII Allies “Failed” Because They Weren’t Explicitly Anti-Racist

The left is obsessed with mining through history to re-evaluate the legacies of men and women who did not have the benefit of living in our “woke” age of social enlightenment. If they’re not tearing down Confederate statues, they’re complaining about murals of George Washington. If they’re not ripping up paintings of Christopher Columbus, they’re trying to get Andrew Jackson removed from the $20 bill. And in a Washington Post article of almost startling stupidity this week, history professor John Broich turns this revisionist eye on the heroes of World War II, claiming they “failed” us by not framing the war against Nazis in explicitly anti-racist terms.

For the love of sanity, make it stop.

From the Washington Post:

While Allied countries opposed the Nazis and Allied troops defeated them, the leaders of the United States and Britain rarely attacked the core tenet of Nazism: the belief in a master race.

In my World War II class recently, I had my students pore through the speeches and letters of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill from the years around the war’s start in 1939, searching for his basis for opposing the Nazis. They found Churchill wanted to stand up to the Nazis’ expansionism, fight their anti-democracy posture and resist what he called (but largely left undefined) their anti-Christianity. What he did not do, however, was call for the destruction of the essence of Nazism: race supremacy.


As it’s once again on the ascent across the globe, this historian imagines where we might be today had the Allies fought on the basis of eliminating the racial supremacy of the Germans (and, in their variation, the Japanese). What if that principle had been, through the greatest global struggle of humankind, woven into our social DNA?

Wonder no more, historian. There would still be neo-Nazis. There would still be white nationalists. There would still be people walking around thinking that Hitler was a hero. Those people – tribal and racial supremacists – have been around since the earliest days of recorded history and they will be here when the sun winks out of the sky. Only left-wingers have this idealistic, naïve hope that they can change the way things are. Yes, cosmetic changes are possible. Yes, you can stand up and fight when confronted with a mad dictator. Yes, you can tailor your laws to see that they reflect society’s values.

But you cannot change essential human nature. You cannot change the fact that some people are good and some people are bad. We live now in a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity, and we owe the leaders and soldiers who fought bravely in World War II an enormous debt for that gift.

It won’t last forever. There is always another conqueror around the bend. We should worry less about the squishy-gooshy dream of weaving “the elimination of racial supremacy” into our social DNA and more about being prepared to stop them.

What do you think?

  1. Wow, what can be said of this stupid story, hypocrisy at it’s worst moment.
    We are living through a crisis south of the border, where we have poverty in some countries and total dictators in an other.
    We now have Russia and Cuba, China and Iran attempting to get a foothold in Venezuela and other countries south of the border. We have politicians like kelcie Gabbard running for President and the progressive socialist leftwing new American Pravda news media telling the citizens of America that we must not get involved in any change of governments in those countries.
    I guess they are under the delusion that we should just keep sending them money so their correct governments can stash it away in their personal bank accounts and let their citizens starve to the point the begin to invade our country using false claims of asylum.
    We would be accused of bigotry is we do nothing and allowed these people to starve to death and be taken over by the likes of Russia, Cuba, China and Iran.
    We would also be accused of bigotry is we did attempt at regime change to help the citizens of these countries.
    The progressive socialist leftwing nut jobs have us coming and going.

  2. Wow! That’s a ridiculous position, even by the extremely low standard that WaPo sets for its writers.

    For decades, entities like WaPo, NY Times, LA Times, etc. published op-ed stories supporting feelings that were merely stupid and wrong. In the past decade they’ve morphed into something far worse – Neo-Nazi shills championing a deviant, primitive agenda. This drivel is a perfect example of that.

  3. The folks at WaPo have had their heads up in certain dark spaces so long-
    it will take an army of proctologists to free them.

  4. All U.S troops and most American civilians saw the great Frank Capra’s documentary “Why we fight.” It covered a lot of those supposed ‘missing’ points. Most Americans knew this stuff anyway through the editorials and the newspapers, as well as instinctively. People trusted the major newspapers back then. WaPo and other mainstream publication’s show an appalling ignorance of American History.

  5. It’s now more apparent than ever that the decay of our education system has caused a cancer of liberalism to spread the Socialist and Communist ideology into the mainstream media.

    Need to continue Trumps kick-ass the whiney leftists agenda back into the sewers where it must remain.

  6. Professor John Broich is the most “unwoke” person I have heard of, what an idiot ! First, my Father and every Military man like him, knew exactly what they were fighting for ! These ridiculous idiots who are erasing our National History are nothing but fools, if we do not remember our History, we are bound to repeat it. These so called “Educators” & their students are revising, rewriting, destroying and erasing America’s National History, our Monuments & our Historical Sites, just like ISIS or any M.E. Terrorists. The Greatest Generation didnt to need to live the idiocy & self obsorbed life of this generation or any other. They lived their lives with their heads held high, they didn’t complain, whine or expect others to live according to their wants or needs nor did they expect to have their lives to be handed to them on a Silver Platter ! They had a tendency to mind their own business, however, when a neighbor needed a helping hand they we’re Johnny on the spot. When War came to them, most of them joined voluntarily and we’re proud to fight for their country & the World at large . I am sick to death of these Socialist Liberial Leftists taking up all of the air space with their whining, their Indoctrination of our young people, destroying our National History, no matter what Century it is & run the USA down !
    Why on Earth do you think the World went to War ?? To stop Adolf Hitler from doing exactly what you, Professor John Broich, are now criticize them for, being men of honor & fighting Racial Discrimination !
    Furthermore, Numbnuts’ , they lived in a completely different World and thankfully didn’t have to listen to you drone on about how Wonderful Socialism is ! Baloney, & horse pucky !!! Thank God my children were grown before the insanity began, I would have withdrew them from your “Educational Institutions” immediately !!
    These aren’t schools or colleges anylonger, they are Indoctrinations Centers, with Activists’, Liberials’ & Socialist Liberial Leftists’ running amuck & ruining our children’s educations !
