    All of this is a little too PC for my old bones. While I wouldn’t dream of bringing up such a controversial figure in any interview, I’m not all that upset about the OC doing it. As far as how Hitler got the people to follow him.....that’s an easy one.......he killed the ones who didn’t.

      Maybe the new OC will tone it down and only admire Stalin, Mussolini or Mao Zedong.

        I can understand not wanting to cancel the guy, but even saying you want to have dinner with Hitler is lending the dude WAY more credence than he deserves. He was a one-trick pony, and his one trick was blaming the Jews, Slavs, Roma, various other non-whites, and everyone else not of German descent for Germany's problems.

          Not really that easy as far as Hitler gaining followers, but this was a pretty stupid response by the OC. One can only hope he has better judgment when calling plays.

            Well, you know they used to say that Mussolini made the trains run on time. But he used to have matronly women come up to his office where he would rape them, kind of like LBJ.

              I don’t think he said that he admired Hitler. He just said that he would find it interesting to eat with him. Please don’t read more into this than was there. Is there anyone on this thread that doesn’t think that Hitler is one of the more interesting figures in history? Please note that I didn’t say admirable, or righteous, or good in any way.....just interesting.

                Exactly. He didn’t have some magic wand of leadership. He capitalized on a bad economy and used fear, hate, and division to bring out the worst in people looking for a scapegoat. He claims you can’t deny he was a good leader; but yeah, I can. No good leader leads with fear and hate. Character and a servant’s mindset makes for a good leader. There are countless examples of people with those traits that he could have used but instead he immediately went to Hitler.

                  On Point!
                  Especially when using judgement about bringing up anyone that evil! I mean come on man, you're just in a new, probably great paying position, & you're going to even consider bringing up a name like that & for what, the student newspaper!!

                      Where I come from you would just get canned for saying stuff like that. I wouldn't have any sympathy for him if that is his fate. In fact, I'm not sure how a public university is going to be able to retain him. "Too PC" - Wow!

                        So because a history major expresses an interest to sit down with bad guy for dinner to probe him, the individual deserves to lose his livelihood for who knows how long? Even though he stated that the bad guy is a bad guy? Sure, words unfortunately have consequences these days, but said consequence should be commensurate with them. Maybe a learning/training experience for all would be of more value. More risky for sure, but more than likely, much more productive for all.

                          Frankly, I am more disturbed with the athletic department's efforts to censor the student newspaper's story. Whoever directed that to occur should also be suspended and investigated.

                            Unfortunately? Yikes.

                              This type of thing happens all the time. I didn't have any info but suspected that's what happened.

                                This has put the university in the national spotlight in an extremely bad way (Yahoo, MSNBC, FOX News, CNN). What's worse is keeping this charade up that he's "suspended" while they investigate. There's nothing to investigate, the words are in print (which they tried to cover up, not a good look either). GV needs to cut their losses if they haven't already, move on and put this behind them as fast as possible.
