    To be more exact, it’s LEFTIST Trash. Ken Burns USED to be a great historian but now he’s sold out with the rest of the Left.
  • Incredibly Powerful and Poignant

    Ken Burns’ latest documentary project is a masterpiece. It is an eloquently told history with objective and methodologically sound evidence to back it up. The mirror that it holds to face of our world and to the United States, in particular, casts an image that should distress the viewer and yet provide many salient points for comparison with our times. These are lessons that many have thought were long since learned. A collective wisdom of nations and experience that would never happen again. Sadly, the echoes of the 1930s and 1940s reverberate powerfully with the hateful period of political discourse and growing conflagrations we see world wide. Burns should be heartily congratulated for this vividly told story and the way in which it captures voices of those that lived through that worst of all chapters in human history; particularly whilst there are still voices front hat era that live. I fear greatly that once those voices have vanished, so too will the lessons of that era be forgotten.

    To let the world know the truth about the holocaust and to illustrate how insane leaders can brainwash an entirely population with their vitriol turning them into ravenous animals to attack a race of people out of sheer ignorance, that’s why !!
