Here's another Readers' Challenge, since the last one was so successful (33 comments, which I think is a record for this blog; I hereby name Andrew X as Third Prize Winner, meaning he gets to have his way with Baghdad Bob Fisk, including leather masks, cats-o'-nine-tails, and penis leashes). Read this 1942 speech by Dr. Josef Goebbels. Then compare it to your typical Old European Yankee-bashing rhetoric. How many similarities can you find? First prize winner gets to gloat about the fact that within three years Goebbels and his wife would be lying dead in the Fuehrerbunker after poisoning their own children. So who do you think Goebbels' modern-day heir is? Maybe Ignacio Ramonet?
