Important breaking news from 1940.
Germany’s Finance Ministry has released the first part of an independent commission’s investigation into its Nazi past, showing civil servants played an important role in Hitler’s anti-Semitic agenda.
The book released Monday, “Bureaucracy and Crimes” by historian Christiane Kuller, concludes that the ministry played a key role in stripping Jews of their money and possessions.
In a presentation at the ministry – a Nazi-built building that served as Luftwaffe headquarters – Kuller said after the war the ministry’s civil servants claimed they were only following rules and regulations they were given.
Hmm. Civil servants from the finance ministry only following rules and regulations to carry out an agenda? Why, this all sounds so familiar. While we’re be facetious here with the reference to Obama’s IRS scandal, how fast would the left be running with the BusHitler meme had Bush so recklessly used the IRS against his opponents?
