Leftoid hysterian … er, historian Howard Zinn:

Divine ordination is a very dangerous idea, especially when combined with military power (the United States has 10,000 nuclear weapons, with military bases in a hundred different countries and warships on every sea). With God’s approval, you need no human standard of morality. Anyone today who claims the support of God might be embarrassed to recall that the Nazi storm troopers had inscribed on their belts, “Gott mit uns” (“God with us”).

Great argument, Howard. How embarrassed are you that Nazis claimed to be “national socialists”?

UPDATE. A prize for Zinny.

UPDATE II. For further comical Zinn-like notions, this might be the place:

Poland – the first country of the former Soviet bloc to dismantle communism – is soon to have a Museum of Communism.
