Lothar, as the first Supreme Commander of the Alliance forces, was important and immensely respected and capable. But he was still playing MacArthur to Terenas' Roosevelt. He led the armies, not he nations.
Is it really that important that you undermine the case that Lordaeran simply holds a special place in the heart of many humans? That the actions of its King and people during the second war helped forge a link between the peoples that still remains strong today?
You see a tirade. I see him talking trash to Thrall in an attempt to rile him up and inspire his men. Angry? To be sure. Ranting and raving? NoWhich overrode his judgement... He starts a tirade
You don't think the legalised slavery in Orgrimmar is something many humans find abhorrent...especially a former slave? You don't think Varian reminding Thrall of his hypocrisy in this matter might be a worthy verbal jab? From the Alliances point of view, the Horde has much to answer for after all, even without everything that went on in Undercity on Thralls watch. Why ignore it?against the orcs for unrelated events to what they had witnessed in UC. Like seriously? What they had just witnessed in UC is way worse than anything Varian mentions about the orcs. But Varian goes on about the orcs instead of focusing on the horrors right in front of them. Varian mentions being thrown into the arenas FFS! Not even on the same scale as what Putress was doing.
