Let’s start with Herr Ratzinger.
It appears he has felt the full might of Jewish, and popular wrath, and is now
back-pedalling as fast as his well-shod feet will carry him. We spoke last month
about his ill-conceived resurrection of “Bishop” Richard Williams, a demented
fool who maintains to anyone who will take him seriously (a dwindling crowd of
late) that the Holocaust never occurred, and that the Nazis killed only 300,000
Jews rather than six million. I guess that makes a difference; perhaps the SS
were not such bad fellows after all!
To make a long story short, the
Pope has now decided that in order to be accepted back into the Church, Bishop
Shit-for Brains must (in addition to other requirements that do not affect Jews)
recant his previous statements concerning the remaining 5,700,000 Jews who
simply went missing (perhaps they simply ran away from home en masse) over the
course of five years. If he does so, he will once more a bishop be, and all will
As it turns out, however, it ain’t gonna
be that simple. The New York Times recently reported that the La Reja Seminary
in Argentina (why do they always run to Argentina?) has deprived Richie of his
chair as head of the place. Furthermore, the head of the whacko congregation
(the Latin American Chapter of the rambunctious Catholic Society St. Pius X),
Father Christian Bouchacourt, stated that Richie’s views “do not reflect the
position of our congregation.”
Very well, father Bouchacourt,
what the hell IS the position of your congregation concerning not only the
Holocaust, but Jews in general? For that matter, what exactly is the POPE’S
position? Ratzinger was, and is, in my opinion an unrepentant Nazi.
A harsh, and reckless statement
This from a the only website
dealing with Ratzinger that seemed to be even handed regarding his Nazi
“Joseph Ratzinger was a member
of an anti-aircraft unit protecting a BMW factory that used slave labor from the
Dachau concentration camp to make aircraft engines, but he was drafted into the
military, and didn’t have any choice in the matter. In fact, Ratzinger also says
that he never fired a shot, and never participated in any combat. Later he was
transferred to a unit in Hungary where he set up tank traps, and watched as Jews
were rounded up for transport to death camps. Eventually he deserted, and became
a prisoner of war.”
Eventually he deserted? He
deserted late in 1945 when the war was all but over. The point is, he saw the
trains, knew they were filled with Jews, knew they were on their way to the gas
chambers, and chose to continue to wear the uniform, and carry the rifle. In my
book that makes him a Nazi, then, now, and forever. And now this piece of slime
wants us to believe that he had no idea that Williams holds the views he does,
and that all the newly repentant bishop has to do is mouth a few words, and he is
welcome to visit the Pope at the Vatican where they can sing the Horst Wessel
Song in two part harmony.
Enough. They are both Nazis.
Ratzinger can meet with all the “Jewish Organizations” he wishes to, can deny
all he cares to, and Williams can spout all the contrition that mendacity is
first cousin to, and it won’t change my mind. There is no dealing with
Speaking of hopeless, what’s up with
the Democrats in general, and our President in particular? Are they serious about
this bi-partisan thing? You can’t reason with ideologues! Haven’t they figured
that out yet? The Republican Party was in full retreat, having at present
a base that consisted only of Rush Limbaugh's Kool-Aid drinkers, and the state of
Montana, and Obama invited them to the White house for a Super Bowl Party! Now
they are full of life once more, standing as the last bulwark against the
tax-and-spend Liberals who simply got lucky, and happened to sweep an election.
They have managed to convince an increasing number of Americans that the last
eight years never happened; that it wasn’t Bush’s tax cuts, reckless spending on
idiotic wars, and deregulation that led to the current horror we now have to
I am starting to believe that
Nancy Pelosi has something organically wrong with her thought processes.
Condoms? In a stimulus package? How did she think THAT would play in Middle
America? If you’re gonna put condoms in a package, shouldn’t it be foil? Why not
hand the Republicans a baseball bat, and invite them to beat you with it. Is she
aware that there are breadlines in Ohio? BREADLINES! Oh Nancy, Nancy…
Lets be clear. There is no
dealing, bi-partisan or otherwise, with the Right. They have no shame, no sense
of the pragmatic, do not know how to negotiate or deal. They know only
confrontation and repetition. They are seemingly always trying to “get back” to
“better days.” In psychology, this process is referred to as “regression,” i.e.:
a return to a previous state of development, and in a clinical setting is an
undesirable process. If it weren’t for two female Republican senators (and Arlen
Specter) the stimulus bill would have been successfully filibustered by those
guardians of your pocketbook, the Republican Party.
Such a parsimonious lot,
conservatives! That is except when it comes to waging useless wars, and building
interstate highways, seemingly the sole functions of a national government,
according to their ideology.
Guardians of your pocketbook.
Uh-huh. What happened to the billions “lost” in Iraq? The cash is still
unaccounted for. Where did it go? I’d like to know. I’d very much like to
I guess I’ll never know, will
Thank you, my friends of all
political stripe for your attention, and as always, I invite your
Dov Burt Levy's Obituary.
Farewell to a Warrior
I have followed your columns with interest these last few years, and found them
insightful and courageous. I believe the name "Dov" in Hebrew means "Bear," The
bear was the only animal the Lakotah tribe honored with the title "Warrior." The
title, to the Indian, did not mean solely a fighter. To the Lakotah the term
"Warrior meant "One who can not be forced to act against his nature." I never
had the honor of meeting you, sir, but after having read your columns allow me
to wish you Godspeed and peace. You were indeed a Warrior.
