Silver sarcastically attacks Greg Johnson and calls Hitler a “delusional nutter” on Radix (emphasis added):

So what? That doesn't mean attacking first made good sense. Hitler, that great statesman (the greatest in the 20th century, according to Greg Johnson), had already so completely antagonized Britain and France with his rushed and totally unnecessary expansionism that there was no chance they'd side with Germany against the USSR - even if they believed that the Soviets were preparing an assault on Europe (via Germany).

They weren't going to let the Bolshies take over Europe for no good reason. Eastern Europe was only allowed to fall to the Soviets because everyone was so exhausted from the war with Germany. But if the Soviets had attacked first it would have all-out war until the Soviets unconditionally surrendered.Hitler was a fuck up beyond belief. Nutzis are so completely taken by the vision of what might have been, the sort of ideal that Hitler could have represented, that they just can't see the plain reality of what a delusional nutter he was.
I’m no Hitler apologist, but the fact is that Saint Adolf tried to get the Western powers on board for a common front against the Soviet Union and they simply were not interested. France signed an anti-German alliance with the USSR simply as a result of German rearmament, and years before Hitler’s antics in Austria and Czechoslovakia.
The UK was at best lukewarm to Hitler and the Churchill faction was always openly hostile. The USA under the FDR regime was openly pro-Soviet. Would these nations have come to Germany’s defense if Stalin had struck first? That’s by no means definite. It’s also interesting to note that while both Germany and the USSR invaded Poland, the UK and France declared war on Germany only.
Meanwhile, Silver has nothing else to do but attack Greg Johnson and Hitler.
