A Different Never

In a recent speech, President Obama defined what he means by the phrase "Never Again" when used in reference to the Holocaust:
...our fellow citizens of the world showing us how to make the journey from oppression to survival, from witness to resistance and ultimately to reconciliation. That is what we mean when we say “never again.”
Yeah, well, that's not what "Never Again" used to mean. I'm certain that "reconciliation" wasn't part of it. The idea was to "Never Again" allow a homicidal dictator like Hitler come to power or to let him direct a massive genocide.

Clearly, with rhetoric like this, Obama is not even vaguely interested in standing up to murderous thugs or even attempting to take any real action to prevent present and future genocides. Never Again has unfortunately now completely morphed into Over and Over Again.

Obama has clearly latched on to the key part of the aftermath of any event -- making all participants feel good about it. Since Obama has always been the thug and not the thuggee, that works well for him.
