VIDEO- Hayworth: "In My History" U.S. Didn't Formally Declare War On Nazi Germany


One more reason to take another look at Rodney Glassman, who could and should beat this fool in the general. Via TPM:

In fact, the United states did declare war on Germany. The timeline goes as follows: Japan attacked the U.S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The United States declared war against Japan the next day, December 8, 1941. Then on December 11, 1941, Germany declared war against the United States -- to which the United States immediately reciprocated by declaring war against Germany that same day.

Hayworth communications director Mark Sanders gives us this comment:

"In a give and take session with members of an audience, Congressman Hayworth was asked about the current conflicts the U.S. is engaged in. He said that the United States did not declare war on Germany during World War II, and agreed with the gentleman asking the question that additional research might be needed. Hayworth instructed his researcher to look into it and we found that on Dec. 11, 1941, Germany declared war on the United States and President Roosevelt wrote 'I therefore request the Congress to RECOGNIZE a state of war between the United States and Germany and between the United States and Italy.'"

Congress agreed in resolving "That the state of war between the United States and the Government of Germany which has been thrust upon the United States is hereby formally declared."

I have a headache. And his name is J.D. Hayworth.
