‘This is what got my blood boiling’: Glenn explains his experience seeing the new film Monuments Men

Over the weekend, Glenn went to see the new film Monuments Men, which is based on Robert M. Edsel’s book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History. Glenn is a big fan of the story, and he was impressed with the film adaptation. While watching the movie, however, Glenn could not shake the overwhelming sense of hypocrisy surrounding Hollywood’s rose-colored glass interpretation of World War II.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“I saw Monuments Men. I happen to love the story, so I’m partial to this movie,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Some people might find it a little slow, but I like the story and the actors too.”

Glenn offered a brief synopsis of the film:

It’s a true story. The story is during World War II. Hitler was taking all of the art, and he was going to build an Aryan museum in Berlin. It would be the largest art collection in the world, and it would have been all of the art from all of Europe and Russia. He would go into the country, and he would find out who has the greatest art. They’d kill the family, and they’d ship it off and hide it. It was grotesque what they were doing.

Well, the universities got together, and they said to FDR, ‘They’re stealing all of the art, and even if we win, there will be no culture left’… We would lose what the West even means because he was going into churches, and he was killing all the priests and the taking all of the icons and everything else. They put together what are called the Monuments Men. The ‘Monuments Men’ land on the beaches of Normandy, and they try to find all of this.

And so [the movie is] their story of trying to find it. It’s really amazing and historically accurate.

While watching the film, however, Glenn could not help but consider the entire scope of the situation at hand. The work of the Monuments Men was noble and necessary, but the United States government had made a conscious decision to prioritize the art over the Jewish people.

“So I’m watching this, and I’m seething inside because all I can think is these progressives… went in to save the art. The art was being stolen British the Jewish collectors. [But they didn’t] care about the Jew behind the painting,” Glenn said. “They didn’t care about the Jewish family that was exterminated, sent to a death camp. They didn’t care about any of that. FDR is on record saying, ‘We’re not here to save the Jews. We’re here to stop Germany.’ But they are there to save the art.”

So often Hollywood shames the United States for being the oppressor or the bully or the conqueror, but this story actually illustrates America as the good guy – even if it doesn’t tell the whole story.

“This is what got my blood boiling. The people that made this movie are the same people that say we’re nothing but horrible, horrible human beings. We’re nothing but conquerors that steal everything we can get our hands on. And yet name the country that replaced all of the monuments,” Glenn said. “Name the country that found the Mona Lisa and put it back. We could have taken it… Russia did it. Russia came in wherever they were and took it. And they sent it all back to Moscow. They took it all. We didn’t. We went in; we found it; and we returned it to the owners.”

Ultimately, Monuments Men depicts a duality in the American psyche, in which there exists both good and evil.

“Monuments Men shows how split personality we are as a country. We are a decent, God-fearing, giving, righteous people when we choose. And at the same time, our leaders can take our collective heart and have it go cold, ignore it, and pretend it’s not there,” Glenn concluded. “They can ignore an entire race of people. It happened with the Indians. It happened with the Japanese. And it’s certainly happened with the Jews. It’s wrong. It’s evil. But that comes from a fascistic-style leadership, where our goodness is expressed as individuals. When there are enough individuals that understand good, then we start to elect good people and good things happen because good people don’t take all of the power themselves.”

    During World War II we were not thought of as “horrible people” and “conquerors” that always stole things. We were heroes that helped save the world from a tyrant bent on and with the demonstrated power to take over the world. The US did not earn the fore mentioned titles until we made plans to invade Iraq, and wrote the script around WMD and fake Taliban links so that the American people would believe it. We earned the title of “horrible people” and “conquerors” when we went into Iraq to take their oil with no plans to leave their country. Taking something that is not yours is called stealing.

    • stugee1

      Not sure what you’re drinking, or smoking, Ted. All the major intelligence services in the world agreed that Saddam had WMD. In fact. most of his chemical weapons were safely ensconced in Syria before our attack. He was also a tyrant who had killed hundreds of thousands of his own people, some by the use of chemical weapons.

      And, could you please document, with sources, what share of Iraqi oil we have taken?

      I call taking the truth stealing as well.

        This is true, sent to Syria, buried.

        Cannot resist getting next to Ted the MSM slave!
        So! You think we went into Iraq for some other reason than reasons stated? And it was all republicans fault and above all your (sometimes deserved) favorite whipping boy GWB!
        Gotta say I had reservations about going into Iraq at the time but after the truth about just how brutal Saddam and lovely young sons were I kinda believe we might have done a bit of good over there. Time will tell.
        Now your superhero, the current POTUS, did not vote to go into Iraq however many of your other lib superheros did including that beauty of politics Hellery! Matter of fact (spelled f-a-c-t, since it is a word that seems to have fled from the liberal vocab!) I do not believe that bad ole GWB could have even gone into Iraq without the support of so many of those now vocal liberals.
        You are so typically liberal. You believe everyone is as stupid as you are so will swallow your liberal media rehash crap. You must be younger also because if you had been around during Nam you’d know about this self demeaning attitude being around much longer than Iraq. Ever hear about the Hollywood loon that went to North Viet Nam to entertain the troops? Not ours! Theirs! That was way, way before Iraq. Don’t believe it was a long time ago? Google the b–ch’s name and get a load of how the skank has shriveled up! She owns double wrinkles for each year since that time. She and that Pelosi thing are in a dead heat to spend the most on cosmetic surgery before they kick off! Bamcare is a godsend to those skanks because like liberals do, they like it much better when other humans are giving it to them. Or rather paying for them.
        Hope Bamcare will take care of plenty of pairs of glasses for you, Ted. If you continue to gather your talking points from MSM then you’ll go thru a bunch trying to ignore the obvious that your common sense is trying to open up for you.

      Um…. we have recovered hundreds of Saddam’s WMD chemical artillery shells. This information is on the Department of Defense website. It is our left-wing news people who try to hide it from you and apparently they’ve succeeded.

      We also recovered Saddam’s hidden nuclear program starter components and plans, the same kit used by North Korea and Iran to start up their weapons programs. Saddam had it hidden under a rose garden. Nobody even knew he had it until an Iraqi approached our soldiers after the war and showed them where it was.

      We have not taken anything from Iraq. We have pumped billions of our own dollars into modernizing a nation that was dragged down into ruin by its Socialist dictator, then damaged by war. They COULD have paid us in oil for the work, just like they are paying other nations to do the same, but our Democrats made damn sure it was the American taxpayer who was robbed to modernize one of the richest nations on the planet.

      “Taking something that is not yours is called stealing.” – the day Democrats figure that out, our nation might be saved.

    • Gwynn Ap Nudd

      The German POWs were put in camps with no buildings, just an area surrounded by barbed wire. Countless died from exposure in Eisnehower’s Death Camps.

      At Nuremberg, the prisoners were tortured to get confessions. And their lawyers were denied facilities in which to work.

      Millions of German civilians were expelled from the Baltic Nations. Many died from exposure and ethnic violence.

      The German people were starved after WW2 just as they were after WW1. Clips exist of American G.I’s offering children candy and then snatching it away. German women sold themselves for food.

      Hundreds of thousands civilians died in the fire bombing of Dresden. As people ran towards the lake, RAF fighter bombers strafed them. That would make a great movie too, huh? Just like that masterpiece Inglorious Bastards which you loved so much.

      So there is much you can feel good about!

        The Luftwaffe did the same thing to innocent British civilians when they bombed Coventry in 1940, a city which had no real military value to the Germans. Hitler just decided to reduce it to rubble to inflict a little terror upon the British populace. War is hell, Junior. The Germans started it and they paid the price when they lost.

        • Gwynn Ap Nudd

          No, the Allies started it when they impoverished Germany after WW21. At least you know about some of the atrocities. Keep learning. Study question: Do you think the Nazis would have turned Europe over to Islam as the Allies are doing?

            That’s a far different thing than giving them our Homelands as the Liberals are doing. They are Evil. Even Churchill wondered if the wrong side had won the war eventually. He saw the beginning of the destruction as huge numbers of Blacks were brought into England. He protested but was shouldered aside.

  • Akrude Nolledge

    Well Ted has just shown us how our non-competitive, government monopolies teach history and encourage independent thinking. But we miss another point; the Iraqi art treasures that were looted as Baghdad fell. People that were so poor they were taking apart live artillery shells to sell the brass, looted the museum there. And our troops and government leadership were castigated in the press for ‘doing nothing’. Maybe Clooney/Goodman should have told that story instead. Hard to fault government leadership that can’t foresee needing a 10,000 man unit of law enforcement at the ready compared to the dingbat planning talent we have there now.

        Which has always confused me how they were able to be the Blue color, and we were given the red. Makes no sense. Just like it makes no sense to call them the democratic party. I’m pretty sure they would do away with democracy in a second if it meant we all just had to live the way they tell us too. Also I believe “Progressive” to be a misnomer. Wouldn’t a move toward communism be more REGRESSIVE in nature? Why do we let them get away with their inaccurate self proclamations? They are the Regressive Communist Party, period.

        • landofaahs

          A liberal thought it up because red is the color of communism and anger while blue is the color of cool and calm. But democrats live to lie.

  • Jonell Bowman

    I thought that the movie showed how horrible the Nazi’s were period. While it did not focus on the concentration camps and the final efforts of the United State and allies in fighting the Nazis and liberating the camps, it presented their evilness from a different perspective that will keep alive the reality of the Holocaust.

    It was heartbreaking face once again the truth about the Jews represented by this movie who were carted away in trainloads, killed and their property stolen. We even got a glimpse the barrels of gold teeth taken from the Jews, which stretches the human imagination to comprehend the depravity of the Nazis. Granted it is Hollywood, but this film will garner support for the Jewish people at a time when there is anti-Semitism surfacing in America. I applaud them for being brave enough to produce a movie that flies in the face of Obama’s progressivism and support for the enemies of Israel.

    • smokehill

      The anti-Semitism surfacing is, paraoxically, primarily pushed by the “progressive” scum who demonize the Jews and fawn over the Palestinian and other terrorists who routinely massacre Jews as a matter of policy, and have pledged to exterminate them.

      Oddly enough, this same group is usually in bed with the liberal (but secular) Jews in Hollywood and the celebrity “elite” who should know better.

      Apparently “Never Forget” doesn’t really mean much anymore.

        I have the most difficult time trying to figure out why any Jew would ever be a democrat – it’s beyond me – but they are. Not to mention on top of it all that the US, under this prez, has turned its back on their homeland and mocked its leaders. They need to wake up.

  • Stephan Bruno

    Because all of the camps were located far behind German lines, mostly in eastern occupied territories, at the extreme edge or beyond the range of the best bombers available. And Glenn, precisely how many men do you think were involved in searching for stolen art? It wasn’t exactly the 101st Airborne looking for Rembrandts.

    Oh we “didn’t care” our way into occupying Germany by force ending the war, freeing people from camps. Nothing this lying partisan dirt button stain has ever stated is true, valid, or remotely correct. His specific political policy views enabled the EXACT climate for such horrors to take place. A blind rabid dog eating it’s own feces is a much more productive member of society.

    Art & science are both people culture. What ARE you blathering about Glenn?
    Oh. Nazi’s. Hitler was an art student. I get it. Nazi Universities. Liberals & progressives are godless Super Hitlers. Oh, yawn. Gott Mit Unz you conservative nitwit.

    In a war, you can’t do everything for everybody. That’s why war is so cruel. The US was the last one to get involved in Europe and they sacrificed many people to finish the job. Had the US stayed out of that war, the world would be a different place even today. There are so many war movies made over the years and not ONE will tell you the true horror of its participans, especially the ones who never made it back.

        Good point, she didn’t say front porch as the liberals claim. But they also show there lack of geographical knowledge – you can see Russia from Alaska, although you have to go to an extreme. My memory says that it is Great Bear and Little Bear Islands, one Russian and one Alaskan – but Google Earth doesn’t bear this out. There are Big Diomede and Little Diomede in the Bering Strait, and there is Attagu and Shemya Islands in the Aleutian chain. I don’t know which it might be, but there is Russian territory that can be seen from Alaskan territory – and as a fishing family the Palins would know that.

            I could write a book.

            hell we could all write a book on dumb Palin quotes.

            It would be on the best seller for years.


            when our President misspeaks it’s a gaffe.

            When Palin does it’s because she’s dumber than a bag of rocks.

            No offense rocks.

            Best Palinisms:

            “Go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant — they’re quite clear — that we would create law based on the God of the bible and the Ten Commandments.” –-Sarah Palin, arguing that Judeo-Christian belief was the basis for American law and should continue to be used as a guiding force for creating future legislation, interview with Bill O’Reilly, May 6, 2010

            “We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada. And I think now, isn’t that ironic?” –Sarah Palin, admitting that her family used to get treatment in Canada’s single-payer health care system, despite having demonized such government-run programs as socialized medicine that will lead to death-panel-like rationing, March 6, 2010

            “Especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.” –Sarah Palin, defending her fiery campaign rhetoric in the wake of the Arizona shooting massacre by invoking a phrase (“blood libel”) that typically refers historically to the alleged murder of Christian babies by Jews, Jan. 12, 2011

            “Because of that one episode, that one episode, that would turn an issue into what it has become over the last two years. I think that’s ridiculous. That’s one of those things, where that issue…that I don’t read, or that I’m not informed, it’s one of those questions where I like to turn that around and ask the reporters, ‘Why would it be that there is that perception that I don’t read?'” –Sarah Palin, ABC interview with Barbara Walters, Dec. 9, 2010

            “But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies.” –Sarah Palin, after being asked how she would handle the current hostilities between the two Koreas, interview on Glenn Beck’s radio show, Nov. 24, 2010

            “I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism. And I have a communications degree.” –Sarah Palin, Fox News interview with Sean Hannity, Nov. 22, 2010

            “We have a President, perhaps for the very first time since the founding of our republic, who doesn’t appear to believe that America is the greatest earthly force for good the world has ever known.” –Sarah Palin, Facebook note, June 30, 2010

            “I would have waived the Jones Act, and some unions not might not like it, not union membership, but the union leaders, too many, who are thugs.” –Sarah Palin, speaking at the Oil Palace in Tyler, Texas, June 26, 2010

            “This is Reagan country (applause). Yeah! And perhaps it was destiny that the man who went to California’s Eureka College would become so woven within and inter-linked to the Golden State.” –Sarah Palin, blundering on Reagan’s education while speaking at a fundraiser at California State University-Stanislaus. Eureka College is in Illinois. (June 25, 2010)

            “What the federal government should have done is accept the assistance of foreign countries, of entrepreneurial Americans who have had solution that they wanted presented … The Dutch and the Norwegians, they are known for dikes and for cleaning up water and for dealing with spills.” –Sarah Palin, on solving the Gulf oil spill crisis, Fox News, June 15, 2010

            “Shoot, I must have lived such a doggoned sheltered life as a normal, independent American up there in the Last Frontier, schooled with only public education and a lowly state university degree, because obviously I haven’t learned enough to dismiss common sense.” –Sarah Palin, on opposition to offshore oil drilling, Facebook note, June 13, 2010

            “Here’s an example of how it wastes some time. To be judged on or to be talked about on appearance—say chest size—it makes me wear layers, it makes me have to waste time figuring out what am I going to wear so that nobody will look in an area that I don’t need them to look at.” –Sarah Palin, Fox interview with Greta Van Susteren, June 12, 2010

            “Unless government appropriately regulates oil developments and holds oil executives accountable, the public will not trust them to drill, baby, drill. And we must!” –Sarah Palin, Facebook note, June 8, 2010

            “As we work and sightsee on America’s largest island, we’ll get to view more majestic bears, so now is a good time to draw attention to the political equivalent of the species.” –Sarah Palin, referring to Kodiak Island in Alaska, even though Hawaii is America’s biggest island, July 19, 2010

            “Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate.” –a Tweet by Sarah Palin, which she quickly removed after being ridiculed for inventing the word “refudiate,” July 18, 2010

            “They are kooks, so I agree with Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh was using satire … I didn’t hear Rush Limbaugh calling a group of people whom he did not agree with ‘f-ing retards,’ and we did know that Rahm Emanuel, as has been reported, did say that. There is a big difference there.” –Sarah Palin, attempting to rationalize why it’s okay for Limbaugh to use the word “retards” but not Emanuel, FOX News Sunday interview, Feb. 7, 2010

            “Who calls a shot like that? Who makes a decision like that? It’s a disturbing trend.” –Sarah Palin, pushing a conspiracy theory that “In God We Trust” had been moved to the edge of coins by the Obama administration (the change was made by the Bush administration in 2007 and was later reversed by Congress, before Obama took office), West Allis, Wisconsin, Nov. 6, 2009

          • Watch it

            You couldn’t write a book, unless you plagiarized it from someone else.

            When Palin misspeaks it is just that – like the North Korea bit – she knew it was South Korea, as she had said on previous occasion before that slip up. Reagan went to school in Eureka Indiana but was Governor or California – innocent flub. That is the way they all are. You’re really reaching.

            Biden, who had aspirations to be President unlike Palin, makes Palin look like a genius. Here are but a few of his beauties.

            — Aug. 22, 2012 “Folks, I can tell you I’ve known eight presidents, three of them intimately.”

            — In a Sept. 22, 2008, CBS interview, Biden said “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,” he said. Herbert Hoover — not Roosevelt — was president in 1929, and television had not yet been invented in 1929.

            — When criticizing former GOP nominee John McCain in Athens, Ohio, on Oct. 15, 2008, Biden said, “Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.”

            — During a Sept. 12, 2008, speech in Columbia, Mo., Biden called for Missouri State Sen. Chuck Graham, who is wheelchair-bound, to “stand up.” “Oh, God love ya,” Biden said, after realizing his mistake. “What am I talking about?”

            — On Aug. 14, 2012, — During a campaign rally in Danville, Va, Biden addressed a crowd, many – African-Americans saying Romney’s plan would ” to put y’all back in chains.” Biden also said with their help it might be possible for Obama to win back North Carolina, (although he was speaking in Virginia).

            — On July 5, 2009, in an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Biden conceded that the White House team “misread how bad the economy was.” His confession came as unemployment hit 9.5 percent, despite the administration’s insistence that it would hold to 8 percent with the stimulus plan.

            — On April 30, 2009, Biden gave advice on dealing with swine flu that seemed to contradict President Obama’s warning not to panic.

That’s me.”

            — During a Feb. 25, 2009, interview on CBS’ “Early Show,” Biden encouraged viewers to visit a government-run Web site that tracks stimulus spending. When asked for the site’s web address, Biden could not remember the site’s “number.” “You know, I’m embarrassed. Do you know the Web site number?” he asked an aide standing out of view. “I should have it in front of me and I don’t. I’m actually embarrassed.”

            — At a Jan. 30, 2009, swearing-in ceremony of senior White House staff, Biden mocked Chief Justice John Roberts for his presidential oath blunder on Inauguration Day. “Am I doing this again?” Biden said, after Obama asked him to administer the oath. When Biden was told the swearing-in was for senior staff — and not cabinet members — the vice president quipped, “My memory is not as good as Justice Roberts,” prompting a stern nudge from Obama.

            — On Inauguration Day, Jan. 20 2009, Biden misspoke when he told a cheering crowd of supporters, “Jill and I had the great honor of standing on that stage, looking across at one of the great justices, Justice Stewart.” Justice John Paul Stevens — not Stewart — swore Biden in as vice president.

            — At a Sept. 10, 2008, town hall meeting in Nashua, N.H., Biden said, “Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me.”

            — Biden mistakenly referred to Alaska governor Sarah Palin as the “lieutenant governor” of her state during a town hall meeting on Sept. 4, 2008 at George Mason University in Manassas, Va. “I heard a very, by the way I mean this sincerely, a very strong and a very good political speech from a lieutenant governor of Alaska who I think is going to be very formidable, very formidable not only in the campaign but in the debate,” Biden said.

            — Biden said he was running for president — not vice president — during a Sept. 1, 2008, roundtable discussion in Scranton, Pa. “Today is the moment for me as a United States senator running for president to put aside the national politics and focus on what’s happening down there,” Biden said.

            — Biden referred to John McCain as “George” during his vice presidential acceptance speech on Aug. 27, 2008, at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Co. “Freudian slip, folks, Freudian slip,” he explained.

            — Biden confused army brigades with battalions when speaking about Obama’s plan for sending troops to Afghanistan. “Or should we trust Barack Obama, who more than a year ago called for sending two additional combat brigades to Afghanistan?”

            — February of 2007, Biden commented on Obama’s candidacy by saying “You got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy… I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

            — At an event Biden meant to boost of the relationship he had with the Indian American community in Delaware. Instead, he told an Indian American that “In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

            — During the Democratic primary campaign in 1987, Biden uttered this quote at a debate: “I started thinking as I was coming over here, why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go to a university? Why is it that my wife, who is sitting out there in the audience, is the first in her family to ever go to college? Is it because our fathers and mothers were not bright? . . . No . . . It’s because they didn’t have a platform upon which to stand.”

            — “Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? Was it because our predecessors were thick? Does anybody really think that they didn’t get what we had because they didn’t have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment? Of course not. It was because there was no platform upon which they could stand.”

            — In August, Biden was asked the difference between himself and his vice presidential rival, Sarah Palin. Biden’s sexist response, “she’s good-looking,”

            — During his first campaign rally with Obama as his vice presidential running mate on Aug. 23, 2008, Biden introduced Obama by saying, “A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!”

            — On Jan. 31, 2007 — the day Biden announced his presidential bid — the Delaware Senator was roundly criticized for calling Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

            — March 2013 during a speech in New York City pushing for stronger federal gun control laws, Biden said former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords had been “shot and mortally wounded.” The phrase “mortally wounded” is applied to a person who has received an injury that causes or leads to death.

            — While defending Obama’s support of the Second Amendment on Sept. 20, Biden said “I guarantee you Barack Obama ain’t taking my shotguns, so don’t buy that malarkey,” Biden said, adding “if he tries to fool with my Beretta, he’s got a problem.”

            — During the Democratic primaries, Hillary Clinton got into hot water when she exaggerated the danger of a visit to Bosnia. But Biden made a similar claim in recounting a visit to Iraq during a Democratic debate. Biden described Iraq’s Green Zone as a place “where I have been seven times and shot at.” He later admitted to The Hill newspaper that a more accurate description was, “I was near where a shot landed.”

            –Jan. 2013 at the Iowa State Society inauguration ball Biden said “I’m proud to be president of the United States,” – causing speculation about whether it was a gaffe or a hint about his 2016 plans.

            — Aug. 2012 an event in Ohio: Biden approached a table of men and said, “I’m Joe Bidenopoulos.” “Ask George who’s the most Greek Irishman he’s ever known.” (suggesting he, Biden is). He moved on to other tables, sitting down briefly, before moving on to one where two women were sitting. “Let’s dance,” he said to one, named Jennifer, as she stood up right next to him. They posed for a photo before he turned to her tablemate, who was wearing scrubs, and asked, ‘Are you a nurse?” He then sat down and started speaking to her quietly. Then, he posed with a group of restaurant staff and owners, and was talking about Greek food and rice pudding. “Can I get some rice pudding to go?” he asked. I guess he didn’t know rice pudding was of Asian origin.

            — “My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, I could be, I could be Vice President!”

            — At an Ohio manufacturing plant, Biden went on to criticize Republicans for being out of touch Romney being rich and all…by talking about his family’s dreams to be rich. “My mother and father believed that if my brother or sister wanted to be a millionaire they could be a millionaire. My mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams. They don’t get us, they don’t get who we are.” I guess Joe doesn’t realize what a bag of contradictions he is.

            — March 23, 2010 during the health care signing ceremony, Washington, D.C., “This is a big fucking deal!” (Joe Biden, caught on an open mic congratulating President Barack Obama).

Your dad passed. God bless her soul.” — Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is very much alive.

            — April 30, 2009 in a “Today Show” interview,. Joe Biden, providing handy tips to protect against the swine flu and freaking us out said “I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now. … When one person sneezes it goes all the way through the aircraft. That’s me. I would not be, at this point, if they had another way of transportation, suggesting they ride the subway.”

            — March 13 2009, Joe Biden, caught on a live mic speaking to a former Senate colleague after arriving on Amtrak at Union Station in Washington, D.C. “An hour late, oh give me a f**king break.”

Do you know the Web site number? I should have it in front of me and I don’t. I’m actually embarrassed.”

            –“If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.” –Joe Biden, speaking to members of the House Democratic caucus who were gathered in Williamsburg, Va., for their annual retreat, Feb. 6, 2009

            — “A successful dump!” –Joe Biden, explaining his whereabouts (dropping deadwood at the dump) to the reporters outside his home, Wilmington, Del., Aug. 20, 2008

            There has never been a politician so intellectually challenged that has been elevated to such a high office in this country. That, unfortunately speaks to the intelligence of those who put him there!

      Glenn is weeping. Why were no Naval Ships named after Black Founding Fathers like Daddy King?
      It’s amazing that White Racists were able to do as much as they did. Once our Nation is ruled by Jews and run by Asians, Hispanics, and Blacks – then there is no limit to what it will do. They will colonize Jupiter and Uranus!

        The Navy has a convention for naming ships, you will notice there are none named after Founding Fathers that don’t fit the convention.

        Any ship may be named after a previous ship, thus we have Enterprise and Intrepid (but don’t have a new USS Constitution as that frigate is still in commission even though not active. Other than that the convention is that battleships are named after states, cruisers for cities, destroyers for dead Naval officers, destroyer escorts for dead Naval enlisted men. BTW, there was an exception – the destroyer USS The Sullivans, which was in my squadron, was named after the five enlisted Sullivan brothers who went down on the same cruiser. Carriers, prior to the nuclear carriers, were named after battles (or previous ships). Since the nuclear carriers they have also been named after Presidents – and more recently, after long serving members of Congress (USS John C. Stennis).

          Interesting. You must be a big Audie Murphy fan. Audie got into movies but he was troubled and didn’t stay too long. Once in a bar he got into a beef with an Italian guy and he said, I killed a lot of Dagos during the war an you’ll just be one more.

        People who deny who they are and promote an inferior group to the elevation of “God’s Chosen” are the very definition of “racist”. I’m tired of hearing about the “jews” and their “plight”. History was written by filthy usurpers, and it continues. ADL can go to hell.

    How did the Jews get all that art? Did they create it? I doubt the Nazis would want the modern type “art” the Jews tend to like. And were the Nazis really going to destroy the art as the movie alleges?

    I liked The Train (1964) with Burt Lancaster better fr the same reasoning. It has a similar storyline but Burt displays contempt for saving the art at the cost of his friends. I really liked the last scene where after killing the Nazi commander Burt remorsefully gazes at the dead bodies of his friends before walking back to town and leaving crates full of art lying on the ground.

    Tried to call radio show today when you going off on this movie. Guess what else FDR would NOT do? Right here in USA! Few years ago when reading “Eleanor”, in the years before WWII when FDR was president, Eleanor begs FDR to pass laws against lynching. It could happen on the streets! No matter how she tried to convince him, he passed no laws against this.
    And let’s not forget all the treasures given & kept below the Vatican for that pope turning a blind eye to the Nazi’s rampages.

    • Gwynn Ap Nudd

      Pius the 12th, wrote a number of Encyclicals against National Socialism. And he gave refugee to many Jews in Vatican City. The Chief Rabbi of Rome, Rabbi Zolli, converted to Christianity based on his inspiration, even taking his name Eugenio. A number of other prominent Jews also thanked Pope Pius the 12th. But at some point, a campaign of slander was begun by Communist Jews and evidently it has now been taken up by Know Nothing Zionist Christians.
      Much of the great Art produced by Europe was produced by Catholics and is on religious themes. Needless to say, one can’t expect someone like you to know anything about it. Of course the Vatican is full of masterpieces – none of them “given by the Nazis”.

    • Anonymous

      Are you trying to say lynching (murder) was legal?

      • suegee

        No, but not prosecuted = guess they turned the proverbial blind eye. You could read the book ‘Eleanor’ or listen to an audio from the library for free. I used to be a fan of FDR – FIRST Winston Churchill, then FDR, so this made me think much less of him. And the bio on NPR of him – which I so enjoyed & purchased also said FDR was quite the liar!
        BTW has anyone here ever watched the bio (from NPR) called “The Man Who Knew” ? OH oh you will never forget it, Sp. Agent John O’neill knew a 9-11 was coming — no one would listen to him, Louie Freih head of FBI managed to fire him, Hillary Clinton sticking her nose & making her own policy with Jamie Girelich and ‘the wall’, were so responsible for this. I see the latest Hillary Papers from Free Beacon so true and not showing her real lying self.
        you all really must purchase this anyway you can, ebay or maybe NPR — and watch, the ending will blow your minds!!
        I woke up in the hospital after a trip and saw the flames of Ben Ghazi on the tv and immediately sat up & said “That ____ Hillary Clinton’s fingerprints are all over this!!” You would’ve too if you connected the dots from the man who knew.

    Does anyone notice that Mohammed’s assault on the Jews consisted of capturing their possessions, exiling them and later killing them as well? Hitler got advice from the Grand Mifti of Jerusalem, a Muslim, on how to deal with the Jews because Islam had been doing it for 1400 years and had it down pat. I bet you’ll never see a movie about that in this “defend Islam at all cost” world we have become.

    Good review of the Movie. Don’t go: it’s propaganda. The Germans put the Art underground to protect it from allied bombing. There is not a shred of evidence that Hitler ordered it burned. On the contrary, if his regime had survived, he planned a great museum of European Art – OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Compare this with the Rothschilds and their private collections.
