...[I]t is still surreal to reread the fantasies of Chamberlain, Daladier, and Pope Pius, or the stump speeches by Charles Lindbergh (“Their [the Jews’] greatest danger to this country lies in their large ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government”) or Father Coughlin (“Many people are beginning to wonder whom they should fear most — the Roosevelt-Churchill combination or the Hitler-Mussolini combination.”) — and baffling to consider that such men ever had any influence.

Not any longer.

Our present generation too is on the brink of moral insanity. That has never been more evident than in the last three weeks, as the West has proven utterly unable to distinguish between an attacked democracy that seeks to strike back at terrorist combatants, and terrorist aggressors who seek to kill civilians.

I think the problem is that most of these people are dumb bastards who can't imagine that anyone could formulate a policy of hate without having a genuine grievance.
This in itself would be no excuse, but hatred for hatred's sake is One Step Beyond most of these types imaginations.

They are the continuing perpetrators of the teenage brainwashing that got them to this state in the first place.

Ironic;they do their best to sound sober and mature, yet they have not actually grown beyond the age of thirteen, an immature thirteen.
