On the surface of it, without context, this is a perfectly sound statement concerning Hitler and the status of Germany -- not \"fundie\" at all.
The Nazi Party was just a fringe group until social conditions made people desperate enough to believe that something truly radical was needed to save them -- and the Nazis offered radicalism in a flavor that pandered to their national egos, so that was the kind of radicalism Germany chose to follow. America's own McCarthyistic phase was similar in attitude, albeit on a much smaller scale.

That much is true (although he did have a gift for speeches). Does that excuse Hitler or anyone else for what happened in the Reich?

Wow - is that why Dubbya is hell bent on creating a reign of despair through massive unemployment, spiralling foreign debt, a climate of terror, and undermining the fabric of society through division.

He's pretty much right, but the irony is laughable.
