Holocaustic Wit

Yesterday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu marked the sad occasion with a speech in which he likened the United States' tentative deal with Iran to the European appeasement to Hitler which let to World War II and the Holocaust.

Or perhaps "Holocaust I" as it may be known after "Holocaust II" occurs on Barack Obama's timetable (i.e., "not technically on my watch - but pretty soon afterwards").

Russia is already preparing to ship "defensive" missiles to Iran as soon as sanctions are lifted, and those mischievous psychopaths in North Korea are planning on selling missile system parts to Obama's pals as well. And even the president acknowledges that the "best case" scenario for his deal will only forestall the possible incineration of the Jewish state for 10 years. And that's assuming that Iran - for the first time ever - lives up to their word.

In fairness, B. Hussein did put on his frowny face long enough to read a few platitudes off a teleprompter on Holocaust Remembrance Day, reminding one and all that it was a day "to reaffirm our responsibilities to ourselves." Vague, self-referential word salad which doesn't mean a thing.

Or maybe it does...

Because if that's what the president of the United States thinks we should "Never Forget," it means Israel is in even worse trouble than we thought.

Stilton, as there is a new Star Wars trailer out today I am looking for the Obama/Yoda/Death Star comic from several years ago,it was great. Not really a computer guy, more practical, gunsmihing and mechanical.
Love FALs.
Would you provide the link to the Yoda-Obamanation-Death Star?
Thanks, and I have toasted you many times, mostly with Glen Morangie sometimes with Aberlour.
If you ever have occasion to visit Portland OR, I will provide the libations.
All the best,

Good point on Holocaust 2.0. I wonder if his domestic policies will equal Holodomor 2.0 for us Americans.

Judi King said...

The world should NEVER be allowed to forget the holocaust. The pictures that came out after WWII are beyond heartbreaking. I do not understand our traitor in chief's refusal to acknowledge the truth of history. He should be locked in a room and forced to look at ALL of those pictures and videos. Although with his narcissistic world view, it probably wouldn't sink in.

Chris said...

Well, the only person in the universe (or even multiverse) to whom Ozymandias-on-the-Potomac ever feels any personal responsibility is himself. Who else really matters? What a revealing (for those who have not yet noticed) malignant narcissistic self-reference.

@ Ben Rumson - is this what you're looking for?

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Ben Rumson- Hopefully this is the cartoon you're referring to.

And I don't often (well, ever - but I'm not dead yet) get to Portland, but considering the libations you mentioned I'll definitely let you know if I'm ever on the way (grin).

@Japheaux- I think Barry would like a Holodomor 2.0 just to the extent that it would make all of us completely dependent on the government for our survival.

@Judi King- Barry's pals in Iran won't even acknowledge that the Holocaust ever happened. And Barry won't acknowledge that it could happen again in 10 years or less because he's not stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions. For the next two years at the very least, Bibi Netanyahu is right - Israel may have to stand on its own without the U.S. at its back.

@Chris- Exactly. It's more of the same old "we are the ones we've been waiting for." Neither remembering the Holocaust nor preventing another one require intense self-reflection. Malignant narcissist is right.

Geoff King said...

I found no evidence that Øbastard actually read his Holocaust comments off of a teleprompter, only that a "written statement" had been released. In any case, it was obviously written by someone other than him, and I imagine he had an extremely difficult time even allowing his name to be attached to it as it neither condemned Israel nor praised Iran.

Anonymous said...

Guess Obama doesn't care about modern day Christians being crucified, beheaded, raped, etc. by ISIS. Or Iran getting the bomb and wiping all those Jews in Israel off the map. He really learned the lessons of the Holocaust, being the great humanitarian and defender of the persecuted that he is (NOT!)

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Anonymous- Thanks for finding the cartoon. I did too, at the same time.

Reminder to all: there's a little "search by topic" widget on the left side (just below the Johnny Optimism ad) which lets you enter keywords to find any cartoon which has ever appeared here. It can be fun (and frustrating) to enter a keyword and look at the history of remarks I've made about a long-running topic.

Nice artistry there with the darkening clouds. But for whom?
It's ten years or less to Iran nuke, but it's less than two years to he is not most protected man in world and holds no office that keeps shields at maximum. Could have big problem with Israel as they take care of business.

John the Econ said...

It's also the 40th anniversary of the takeover of Cambodia by Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. Although Progressives today would like for everyone to forget this since they dream and deploy many of the same tactics (like alienating the nation's youth against their parents), Pol Pot today would be considered an ecological visionary; chasing almost everyone out of the cities to go work on the farms in the ultimate "workers paradise". Between a quarter to a third of the population of the entire country was eventually executed or worked to death. First to be executed were the "worthless" classes; the bourgeois middle class, religious and ethnic minorities, intellectuals, and anyone else not seen as "fitting in". It was the largest organized mass murder of civilians since the Holocaust.

So Iran gets their bomb, Cuba gets removed from the "terrorist list" because they've been "good" for a mere 6 months.

Now listening to Obama prattle on in, no, wait, now he's literally whining. Really. Is this Presidential? Could anyone imagine Reagan, Bush, Clinton or even Carter literally "whining"?

John the Econ said...

"It's embarrassing" he said.

Yes, it is. He has no idea.

Colby Muenster said...

I heard on the radio the other day that 50% of American Jews no longer support O'Liar. Huh? What the flying hell does this piece of condensed roach excrement have to do to lose 100% of Jewish support?

Holocaust II is going to start with Iran trying to drop a nuke on Israel, and all sorts of hell will break loose from there. Is there any doubt that Iran desires to do this while President Resident is still a squatter in our White House? They know damn well he wouldn't lift a finger to help Israel. He'd put a suit coat over his golf clothes, get in front of a mic and "strongly condemn" their actions, and be back on the links in time to finish the back nine.

The Star Wars re-deaux brought a smile to my face all over again. Thanks!

We talk of the decline and fall of the United States of America. Well, we're in a state of decline to some degree, which is only the beginning of total disintegration of a nation. Regardless of all the signs that spell out a nation's failure, be it division among the populace, over different ideas that have come to be popular that once were not, or anything else...the ONE thing ANY nation cannot do and expect to continue is to come against Israel, as Obama is trying to take us. We may well see in our lifetimes, the powerful hand of God move in their behalf. It will be awesome and we want to be WITH Israel when that happens!

That is so very true. I visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. and at the end of the "tour" there were several large screen TV's showing B&W movie video of what the Allies saw when the liberated some of the concentration camps, and of the "clean-up" that had to be done.
Most of the adults were emotionally shaken. Women openly sobbing, and men quietly crying.
I can only imagine that Øbamma has either NEVER been there, or if he was he probably grinned that arrogant crap eating grin and thought it was funny!
The saddest thing about that visit is that all those atrocities happened because of the gradualism that Hitler introduced to a willing German citizenry wanting "Hope and change" after being defeated in WWI, and other countries wanting to try and appease Germany.
Those VERY SAME things are happening again and people are too blind to see it.
People didn't learn from history, and will soon have to repeat it I'm afraid.

Popular Front said...

The only 'Holocaust II' the Middle East (and the world) is likely to see is going to be the punishment inflicted on Iran by the IDF, when the Persians learn (yet again) that duplicity, blowhard rhetoric and Islamic zeal is no match for a well-trained and highly motivated military force defending itself with literally their backs to the sea. I don't care what fancy missile doodads the Russians sell Iran, at the end of the day they'll be manned by dumbass Persian conscripts and while they're figuring out what all the little dots on the screen are, they'll be getting an incoming ARM right up the keester.

John the Econ said...

Meanwhile, HRH-HRC continues across the land on her Alien-nation tour, offending ordinary, unworthy citizens where ever she reluctantly encounters them:

Why is Hillary's 'Scooby van' parking in handicapped spaces?

"Nothing could better represent the “rules are for little people” attitude of Hillary Clinton than cavalierly parking in parking spaces reserved for the handicapped."

Again, I am seriously doubting the future of this candidate, and her "optics". The only way the GOP can lose to the dominant culture of the Marie Antoinette Democratic Party is by doing what they've been doing for the last 30 years, which is pretty much the same.

Pete (Detroit) said...

Seriously, Jeb Bush / Hillary Clinton? What is this, 1992?
And OMG if there is ANY one w/ more baggage then Bush, it's GOT to be HRH - HRC... and that's BEFORE we include Bill...
Definately time to break out the "Monica's Ex-Boyfirend's Wife for PRESIDENT!!!!" bumper stickers again!

American Cowboy said...

I read the article that John The Econ referenced.
The video has already been taken down though.
The cover-ups by the MSM marches on

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Geoff King- I don't know that Barry said the words out loud either. Maybe the presidential autopen wrote it out for the teleprompter, which delivered it in text-to-speech mode.

@Anonymous- For Obama, the lesson of the Holocaust is that the next one will also get its own remembrance day.

@Anonymous- I think the increasing darkness is actually emanating from the White House these days. And I'm not talking about race - I'm talking about moral evil.

@John the Econ- Nice observations about the nightmare of Cambodia. This is one of those situations where those who don't remember history will be doomed to repeat it. Except - oh yeah! - we have smarter people trying to create the workers paradise this time, right?

And Barry's Cuba visit really did reinforce the fact that he's much cozier with our enemies than allies these days. Funny (not) how few people find that disturbing.

And regarding Barry whining about Loretta Lynch, she's already said that she'd treat the president's illegal immigration executive orders as legal. That's a pretty big disqualifier for the nation's top authority on law.

@Colby Muenster- I have no idea why any Jews support Obama at this point. Seriously, it leaves me slack-jawed.

I'm not sure Iran will strike during Barry's remaining time on the clock, though I have no doubt they'd like to. They'll have the bomb by then, no doubt, but I don't think they'll use it until they also have missiles capable of hitting the United States. Which, under Barry's agreement, they can continue working on. You know, in case they need to suddenly launch a barrage of weather satellites.

@PRY- Whether you approach it from a secular or non-secular position, deserting Israel is a bad, bad idea.

@American Cowboy- Obama seems to believe that History is somehow disconnected to the present, and that we're all too smart and evolved for another Holocaust to happen. Mind you, there's genocide aplenty going on under his nose - so his lofty confidence is baffling.

I absolutely believe that intentionally or not, Obama is laying the ground work for the war to end all wars.

@Popular Front- I'd like to think so, but how much might Israel's military strength be degraded if Obama decides to defend Iran with ordnance, intelligence, or both? It's not unthinkable at this point.

@John the Econ- You haven't been paying attention: Hillary is handicapped because she's a woman.

@Pete (Detroit)- I've got to admit that it's pretty damn depressing to think of a Bush/Clinton matchup. Not that I necessarily hate Jeb, but I just can't believe that our country has come to embrace royal families to this degree.

@American Cowboy- Apparently the Hearst Corporation didn't want the video shown anymore and pulled it for (ahem) copyright violation. Color me skeptical.

Popular Front said...

@Stilton - that would be a step way too far to tolerate in the Pentagon. Since 1979 the US military has been itching to square the account for the Tehran embassy hostage ordeal and some of those people are still serving today, either active or in an advisory role. They have a lot of influence and the US military has never given an enemy a free pass, no matter how long it has to wait to get even.

No, phony baloney deals made by Obamayomama are one thing but arming the Persians? Sharing intel? Never happen.

Bruce Bleu said...

Juan the Econ,
You must be unaware that Shrillary is allowed to park in handicapped spaces. If you had seen the ENTIRE van you would have seen the bumper sticker showing either a brain or a depiction of competance in a wheelchair.
I hired a guy last week who made mention of Shrillary as a Presidential candidate (whose personality coined the moniker for Marine One, (the Presidential helicopter), as "Broomstick One") and he said "We've never had a woman President. Might as well give HER the chance". I thought, "we've never had a pile of dogshit"... OK, bad analogy... but if the office of president has been reduced to THAT, what is in store for us when lamont is extradited back to Hell?

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Popular Front- My speculations weren't intended to impugn our service people; I agree with your assessment. But I think Barry could influence other countries to funnel intelligence and military ordnance to Iran via the backdoor. That's why I mentioned him by name instead of saying "the U.S."

@Bruce Bleu- The person you refer to certainly has a low threshold for what it takes to be president. Has it really been reduced to "what kind of person haven't we had yet?"

Geoff King said...

Bruce Jenner for president in 2020! Just because we haven't had one of those yet.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Geoff King- Although debate rages on whether we've "had one of those" for first lady...
