David Klinghoffer defends Expelled and supports his assertion that "Darwinism contributed mightily to Hitlerism" (http://www.evolutionnews.org/2008/04/hitlers_debt_to_darwin.html) by selectively quoting from the following reference. Whether or not the original source supports or undermines his claim may be judged from is the passage in context: "It was part of his character always to try to create the impression that he had mastered whoe areas of knowledge…Yet it seems all too probable that…Hitler had acquired his knowledge of those areas only from second- or third-hand digests…he went on extracting the elements of his world view from pseudoscientific secondary works: tracts on race theory, anti-Semitic pamphlets, treatises on the Teutons, on racial mysticism and eugenics, as well as popular treatments of Darwinism and the philosophy of history…In actual fact, knowledge meant nothing to Hitler; he was not acquainted with the pleasure or the struggle that go with its acquisition: to him it was merely useful: the ‘art of correct reading’ of which he spoke was nothing more than the hunt for formulations to borrow and authorities to cite in support of his own preconceptions." Joachim C. Fest, Hitler. Harcourt, 2001, p210.
