1938: Left Embraces "Oppressed" Sudeten Germans, Boycotts Czechoslovakia

(Prague, 1938) Czechoslovakia reacted defiantly to a call for an academic boycott of that country for its occupation of Sudetenland. Pressure on Czechoslovakia has increased recently since Czechoslovakia refused to negotiate with the Sudeten-German Party due to what Czechoslovakia calls "its Nazi orientation." The call -- endorsed by labor unions in Canada, the Presbytarian Church, and anti-racist groups throughout the West -- would begin a strategy of isolation for Czechoslovakia, accused of being a "racist, apartheid state" for its treatment of the minority Sudetens. Czechoslovakia claims that much of the Sudeten issue has been whipped up by an aggressive Germany, an allegation much of the international community has rejected.

The great thing about working with "Quantum Realities" is that nothing is a spoof, it's all an alternative universe. What would have happened in WWII if the Left had treated the Germans as the do the Islamists?

In fact, some of the Left of that period were with the appeasers. See

Do you know that Communists, both Stalinists and Trotskyist, as well as social dems, joined the Vichy govt in France? So none of this is surprising.

I also strongly recommend Aryeh Stav's booklet on Czechoslavakia and the Munich pact, available from Ariel Center for Policy Research in Sha`arey Tiqvah, Israel. A lot of material in Steve Plaut's parody was taken --IMHO-- from Stav's booklet.
Arthur Cohn, the movie documentary director, was impressed by the booklet.
