Umbrella Men: Neville Chamberlain and Barack Obama


Can personal charm stop a dictator? That’s what Neville Chamberlain thought he was going to do, when he implemented Plan Z. Of course it didn’t work, and World War II happened in spite of Chamberlain’s charisma and personal likability. It was Winston Churchill, the pompous and grumpy stalwart, who actually fought the war. In this Afterburner, Bill Whittle uses this lesson from history as an allegory to discuss how President Obama assumes he can handle foreign relations.

    Liberals choose to go through life using only their wishbones while the real work on peace and security is done by people who put their backbones to work.

    Thank you Bill Whittle! Always enlightening and relevant.

    Yep! i’ve been saying this all along! Appeasement NEVER works! O knows this is true where the Muslims are concerned – HE KNOWS that we appear to be weak and unstable, easy to defeat. They laugh at our attempts to “reason” with them. O is not stupid; he was raised to be a Muslim; he knows the mind-set, but his hatred of this country drives him on. Ian Fleming was a spy during WWII, and there is an old book that shows how the stalwart British “spies” worked hard to save Britain from Chamberlain’s folly. Even after Churchill took over, Chamberlain’s dastardly deeds almost lost all of Europe to Hitler! Now, we are headed down the same road because people are swallowing the lie of “negotiation and peace at any price.” Shame on us. Wake up, America! Pay attention to the Freedom Lovin’ motorcycle jockeys who spoke loud and clear on 9/11 in D.C.!!! They are NOT the fringe element in society – they are the patriots!

    To compare Trayvon Soeterro-Obama to Neville Chamberlain, is a gross insult to a long gone decent but honest man of those pre-War times, who had never met, nor could understand a man of such charm and duplicity as demonstrated by Adolf Hitler when it suited him. Obama has that same deceitful charm and charismatic smiling evil as Hitler, to whom you should rightfully compare Obama, not a decent man of his times like Neville Chamberlain, who but sincerely wanted to avoid a repeat of the so-called Great War, something that Obama clearly wants to get us into yet once again, so as to financially finish off this country for ever ! Compare Apples with Apples, and not Apples with a pile of immoral crap like Obama ! Obama is a false President and a leader only to perdition and a darker hell that he intends for all Americans. He is the deadly manifestation of Islam & Communism, boding untold evil for the rest of the world that he see’s himself ruling as the Neo-Muslim Caliphate -nothing but a new Hell on Earth..

      Chamberlain was one of the original “one worlders”. I have little sympathy for the man. Regarding the comparison, I have to agree that Chamberlain was more benign in comparison. I think his evil paled in comparison to Obama’s.

    I always go back to Dinesh D’Souza’s 2012 movie 2016: Obama’s America, which explains Obama’s worldview so well. As long as we let men like this run our nation we will be seen as weak. It is truly the war of Good vs. Evil. Good will win in the end, but we must fight hard in the meantime!

    Good video Bill Whittle, as usual.

    I would say people like Paul Ryan, Ron Paul, and Rand Paul are three of the best hopes for the US today.

    • Wiseoldlady

      Are you kidding…Paul Ryan…you mean Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and both Paul’s.

      As for Hitler…when will the truth become reality. He was set up and used. Yes he had his flaws…BUT HE WROTE over 20 LETTERS REQUESTING CHURCHHILL AND FDR TO STOP THE WAR. BUT THEY WANTED TO PROLONG THE WAR SO THE BANKSTERS COULD MAKE MORE MONEY. THAT WAS REQUESTED BY NONE OTHER THAN FDR. Hitler did love his country and had put everyone to work and they were happy until CHURCHHILL AND THE COMMUNISTS COULD NOT STAND GERMANY BECOMING A GREAT PROSPEROUS NATION SO HAD TO DESTROY IT. LIKE I SAID, HITLER WAS SET UP BY CHAMBERLAIN AND CHURCHHILL….ROTHSCHILDS , ROCKEFELLARS. THEY WOULD NOT ALLOW GERMANY TO BE GREAT. has tons of evidence. In my research much of what that web site says correlates with other sites and letters, notes, books, etc written or kept sealed and or hidden. The history books have twisted the truth just as they do with everything.

      • Tallfritz

        So, you think Hitler was a “good ol’ boy”???
        I’m certain that more than 6 million Jews and a few million other “non-undesirables” would disagree…

    Great Point Bill

  • Smartfella?

    “Dare I confess it? I rather liked him.” Those were the words of Sir Anthony Eden, a
    future Prime Minister of Great Britain, after he returned from a 1934 visit and
    meeting with Adolph Hitler.
