My point is that you shouldn't find Nazi-apologist on the left, the  
leading intellectual on-campus left (in the sense of academic left,  
not lefties who work on campus). I would expect some such lefties to  
defend the Stalinist death camps, just like right-wing nuts say that  
Hitler didn't exist. -- Matthias
