The Young Turks / Confederate Statue Smashed By Protesters (VIDEO)

At 4:38 I realized that Cenk was defending lawlessness and vandalism and I got tired of listening. As for having monuments to the fallen German soldiers of World War Two, speaking as a Jew, I would have no objection to that. Cenk raised the point, himself and then acted as if he had forgotten it - German soldiers weren't necessarily Nazis. I would want the Germans to mourn and honor the men they lost. For them to do otherwise would be for them to lose a piece of their humanity.

The Young Turks / Are Alternate History Shows Harmful To Society?

+StylesusTNA That's a half truth. When America entered WWII, the front was certainly stalled and true, America was a minor power at the time, only able to make a major difference because the major powers had already bled each other dry. BUT without us in that picture, the War would have ended with German troops well inside of France, and major territorial gains at the expense of the Russian Empire. Without any position of strength to negotiate from, the allies wouldn't have been able to push anything like the treaty of Versailles, so no national humiliation and probably no Nazi rise to power. Adolf Hitler would be known only as a semi-obscure folk artist.
