    The complete article, as Angry seemed to think that the last three lines or so were not necessary to his argument.  I suspect Angry can't post a darn thing in its complete context.  You decide if he is correct in his assertion.

    President Obama issued a statement yesterday to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day. He noted that survivors who bore witness to “the horrors of the cattle cars, ghettos, and concentration camps have witnessed humanity at its very worst and know too well the pain of losing loved ones to senseless violence.” (We notedbelow how some in Europe chose to mark the day, which takes place each year on January 27, the day Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz.)

    The idea that all violence is “senseless” violence is one that has taken deep root on the left; it’s also, unfortunately, one that poses a major impediment to understanding the world.

    Nazism may have been an ideology to which the United States was — and to which the president is — implacably opposed, but it is hardly “senseless.” By the early 1930s, the Nazi party had hundreds of thousands of devoted members and repeatedly attracted a third of the votes in German elections; its political leaders campaigned on a platform comprising 25 non-senseless points, including the “unification of all Germans,” a demand for “land and territory for the sustenance of our people,” and an assertion that “no Jew can be a member of the race.” Suffice it to say, many sensible Germans were persuaded.

    On September 12, 2012, President Obama also lamented the “the kind of senseless violence that took the lives” of four Americans in Benghazi. That, you may recall, is the day the president supposedly said the murders occurred as a result of a non-senseless terrorist attack carried out by jihadists.

    This sanitized version of events, both past and present, is surely more comforting. It’s also truly senseless.

    angryman isnt this stupid, he's just making up vision to slander his foes.

    To compare the holocaust to "senseless violence" is in my opinion a poor choice of words and a world leader should use better judgement.

    The school girl murdered in Chicago this week was senseless violence; the holocaust was genicide that was years in the making and supported by a large percentage of the population in the countries and a percentage of the world population at the time.

    BIG DIFFERENCE!

    12 angry men 's posts are senseless, in that no one with any sense will claim that the NRO article shows support for the Nazis...

    The point is, to label violence as "senseless",  sanitizes evil.

    The violence of the Nazis was not "senseless", as meaning 'not for a purpose'... it was violence deliberately committed by evil men for their evil purposes... . 

    "Evil" is an outdated concept to the Obama moral relativists..they wont even identify Muslim extremism as our enemy. It is all "senseless" violence. 

    The only evil enemy Obama will specifically identify are "Republicans".
