Daily Show Host Begins Rehabilitation of Adolf Hitler

Daily Show Host Begins Rehabilitation of Adolf Hitler

What’s so bad about Adolf Hitler? After all, he was a socialist, who made sure no one in the private sector could either succeed or fail except within parameters determined by the government, thus guarding against inequality. He provided many “free” government services. He protected his people against the potentially dangerous liberties that Americans enshrined in the First and Second Amendments. Just as the Founding Fathers are becoming villains to be eradicated, maybe it’s time for moonbats to rehabilitate Hitler.

Trevor Noah, current host of The Daily Show, seems to think so. He applies the cherished progressive tool of relativism to demonstrate that Hitler wasn’t any worse than many others, including heroes deserving of great respect. Heatstreet shares highlights from his new book Born a Crime.

Americans and Europeans may think Hitler was the worst guy in the world…

But if black South Africans could go back in time and kill one person, Cecil Rhodes would come up before Hitler. If people in the Congo could go back in time and kill one person, Belgium’s King Leopold would come way before Hitler. If Native Americans could go back in time and kill one person, it would probably be Christopher Columbus or Andrew Jackson.

The great philanthropist Cecil Rhodes probably did more to raise the standard of living in Africa than any other person who ever lived. The same might be said for Christopher Columbus and the Western Hemisphere, since he lifted it out of Stone Age savagery; see Apocalypto to get an idea of what life was like here before Columbus arrived. Andrew Jackson was a war hero and a great president whose portrait is featured on the $20 bill for good reason.

Yet all are arguably worse than Hitler according to Trevor Noah, who concludes, “So in Europe and America yes, Hitler is the Greatest Madman in History. In Africa he’s just another strong man from the history books.”

Everything is relative, after all.

Good title, since his ideology is a crime against sanity.
