What Happens when the world ignores "Nutters"

Young HitlerYoung Adolf
Thanks to Hugh Hewitt for taking my call yesterday! I was a little nervous and rambled. Today's great segment with Mark Steyn reminded me of a point I wanted to make but failed too yesterday. Listening to Mark Steyn and Hugh Hewitt and his remark regarding extraterritorial ambitions of Iran reminded me of what I wanted to say yesterday. The "Nutter" Iranian PM is more dangerous than Adolf Hitler, also dismissed as a nutter, due to the 1.2-1.5 billion Muslims in the world. If 1/10th are Jihadist types that is 25% greater than the population of Germany and Germans Hitler hoodwinked and look at the Chaos that ensued with Adolf.

To underscore my point Young Adolf was just a young "Nutter", he got off easy as a result his Weimer Revolution or failed coup d'état which occurred in November 1923 with the help of World War I General Erich Ludendorff, and other leaders of the Kampfbund. It was unsuccessful, but young Adolf tried to gain power in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. (A putsch is the German equivalent of a coup d'état, or the revolt of a small number of people, e.g. a military coup.) Hitler's was allowed to defend himself and his crazy rhetoric captured the imagination of receptive Germans thus setting the stage for his rise to leadership a few years later. This reminds me of a young Mahmoud Ahmadinejad now Iranian president who took over the US embassy 27 years ago.

    • "Up to November 1923 Hitler continued to build up the strength of the Nazi Party. During this time he also during this time he also plotted to overthrow the German Weimar Republic by force. On November 8th 1923 Hitler led an attempt to take over the local Bavarian Government in Munich in an action that became known as the "Beer Hall Putsch." Despite initially kidnapping the Bavarian officials in the Buergerbraukeller beer hall in Munich and proclaiming a new regime using their names, the coup was not successful. The officials were allowed to escape and re-gain control of the police and the armed forces. The coup was ended on the morning of November 9th, when a column of three thousand SA men headed by Hitler and General Ludendorff (one of the most senior generals of the First World War) were halted on their way to the centre of Munich by armed police. After a brief gunfight, only General Ludendorff and his aide had made it through to the central Plaza, where they were arrested. Hitler had fled the scene and was later arrested and charged with treason. After his trial for treason he was sentenced to five years in Landsberg prison, however he had successfully used the trial itself to gain publicity for himself and his ideas. During his term in prison Hitler began dictating his thoughtsand philosophies to Rudolf Hess which became the book 'Mein Kampf' Hitler was released from Landsberg prison in December 1924 after serving only six months of his sentence.

    Beware of "Nutters" especially with a Nuclear Bomb!
