Idiot

The Purple Avenger--paging Dr. Freud!--goes after Obama.
In one of his more egregious and easily demonstrated lies, made even more so by the day he decided to let it loose on, Obama has rewritten WWII history such that the allies liberated Auschwitz...

Auschwitz of course is in Poland. It was liberated by the Red Army on Jan 27 1945. Poland, on most maps is usually placed to the east of Germany, although we may need to investigate the geography textbooks the Messiah used as a child...
Of course...
The Allies of World War II were the countries officially opposed to the Axis powers during the Second World War. Within the ranks of the Allied powers, the British Empire, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and the United States of America were known as "The Big Three."
I get that Obama may have gotten this wrong here, but right-wing bloggers are so funny when they try to correct others' slip-ups and embarrass themselves. Even gamers aged 12+ know that the Soviet Union was, indeed, included among "the Allies."

One wonders what textbooks the "Avenger" used.

Update:After checking, it seems Obama might have garbled the language here, but saying that "he had an uncle who was one of the, um, who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps" is very different than saying his uncle "liberated Auschwitz." The uncle could very well have a) been one of the first American troops into Auschwitz and b) liberated concentration camps. There were, after all, several such camps. The question here is should he be lectured on picayune bullshit stuff like this by people who can't use the word "ally" properly and is this as important as not knowing a damn thing about our current enemies?
