I find it amusing how they changed their name to just "History" now.

I think it's the HC that shows that stupid pawn shop show that so many tourists (usually rednecks) keep asking us locals where to find.  I know precisely where it is, but I usually send them on a goose chase, for gits and shiggles.

OMG I love that show where is it!?!?!

Well it's kinda tricky to get to, so bear with me.  First, from the Boulevard take Sahara heading east, then take a right onto Boulder Highway.  Follow that until you get to Tropicana Avenue, and then head west until you pass the Boulevard, then keep going until Decatur.  Then head north on Decatur until you reach Sahara, then take a right.  Once you get there, ask me again.

Ok.  Done.  Where is it?!?!?!

Ok good.  Now, once you get to the Boulevard on Sahara, take the elevator inside the Stratosphere Tower (admission is $15, mind) to the top floor.  Go around the outside edge of the observation deck counter-clockwise four times.  Then take the elevator back to your car and drive 430 miles north on I-15 until you get to somewhere in southern Utah.  At that point, call me and I'll fax you an inverted blueprint of the Pawn Stars store to help you find it.

Hitler was a major jerk and even though he gave us anti-smoking laws, Hugo Boss and Voltswagons, he should be recieved as a villain and everyone should know about him so he won't happen again.

Well, he's certainly been a good leader for the History Channel.

Hey, 1996 called, they want their meme back. Anyway, HC doesn't even show much WW2 these days.

Haha.  When I was in Vegas back in June, some old couple from Georgia asked our shuttle driver how to get there.  He kind of grimaced before giving them directions.

Nothing really, I'm probably just subconsciously betraying that I don't care for the word. 

As for Hitler, I think it is important that we recognize his humanity and not portray him as some horror film type villain.  However, the apologia put forth was pretty groundless and you cannot just overlook the evil that he/his apparatus committed.

Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

The History Channel hasn't been remotely interesting (or history-related) in years.
Even in the early 2000s you could tell that the channel was about to go downhill.

That's the only time I ever watced it, so I can't really comment on that.

Most of the theme cable channels have pretty much lost their theme by now.  You can occasionally still find healthcare on Discovery Health, but that's it.

Everything else is just a 24 hour cycle of Real World and Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives knock offs.

USA's managed to stay vague enough that it's actually pretty good.

Insanity here is just a cop out. The man knew what he was doing even in the midst of his anger, and paranoia. The tragic thing was that he was rational.

Yay, interwebs 80 years latter psychiatry.

Nobody knows what was his part of sanity, and it hasn't the slightest importance to give a judgments on his acts.

Libertas is probably right that had Hitler succeeded, he would have been regarded as a hero in the West.

Besides the fact that remaking History is one of the most, if not the most, pointless thing.

Ah yes?

Humanity, or at least Europe wouldn't care about the 1st industrial mass murder in History which happened on its territory? Daring, to say the least.

West was already recognizing the fact that slavery was bad, and slavery wasn't even direct murder, then Holocaust...

The only ones who wouldn't care of Holocaust today, or who would ultimately contest it are, either marginal (some white supremacists in West and former USSR, and some new World Order kind for the most part), or come from regions that haven't directly been concerned by it and who have an issue with Israel seen as a present given to Jews by West to apologize for Holocaust in the detriment of populations that had nothing to do with Holocaust (that is some anti-zionist movements in some Muslim countries, but here too it remains marginal movement, not populations).

Then the only one who wouldn't recognize it would be marginal in West and some movements which also remain marginal from part of regions which didn't live it and which have an issue with one of its consequence. It's not like it's something that could that easily be skipped, and each time it is, it is because of some extremism and/or ignorance and/or passion.

If I answered this thread honestly by saying what I thought about this thread's 'objective' and the genocide-loving retard who started it, my infraction point thingee would skyrocket through the goddamn roof.

Hell, I would end up on mod review.

Then again, since I know that CJK is just a joke poster who makes threads like these to get a rise out of you people (hurr durr I'm so politically incorrect!), maybe not.

I mean really, I've given up taking posters like Coburnin2012, KeeptheChange, and CJK seriously.  I mean I believe that there are uber reactionary people out there who really do hold beliefs like that, but usually only trolls would continually make threads that are super unpopular like this or the "women shouldn't be able to vote" thread.  I bet that CJK is really five mid twenties professional American males with online jobs living in a flat in Bangor, Maine who are smoking weed and listening to George Carlin comedy records and macking on 16 year old mathletes.  They probably saw this website a few times in the past and decided "hey what the f***?  These guys spend countless hours talking about politics, let's go troll!"
