Against the Grain
D.C. has a lot of faux-counterintuitive punditry. Commentators showily express opinions that they pretend are unpopular or courageous but are actually perfectly well accepted among elites. Not Pat Buchanan. His unrepentant defense of the Nazis and, in particular, Adolph Hitler, is the sort of opinion that people actually don't express. Buchanan goes so far as to say that "Hitler wanted to end the war in 1940, almost two years before the trains began to roll to the camps," thus laying blame for the Holocaust squarely on the shoulders of the Allied forces. Now that's counterintuitive!
Your move, Slate.
