Did I read right!?

Reader comment on item: Twenty Years of Illusion about Islamism
in response to reader comment: don't stop there

I can't believe what I read - did you really equate Winston Churchill with Hitler?

I challenge you to come with any verifiable quotes that show Churchill to be anti-Black, anti-Catholic, anti-Mexican (!?) or anti-Irish. As to being anti-Jewish, you might look up a book by Jewish scholar and voluminous biographer of Churchill Martin Gilbert, CHURCHILL And The Jews: A LIfe long Friendship (2007).

As to Woodrow Wilson and Margaret Sanger, you are partly right, Wilson was a racist who sharply and disgracefully intensified segregation in Washington. And Sanger was a believer in eugenics, but does that you think her ardent advocacy of women's right to birth control is of no account in evaluating her life's worth.

And, again, did you really say that Winston Churchill was no different than Adolph Hitler?
