Those Who Won’t Learn From History . . . .

22 Jun

The following video seems credible.  It presents a disturbing depiction of a dark moment in American history.

I’m not presenting the video as evidence of what a bunch of bastards our government not only is, but has been for at least two generations.

I’m not making a moral judgment.  If any nation initiates war, they’d by God better win because, if they lose, they’ll be subject to their adversaries’ atrocities.  This is simply the way of the world.

Some will argue that the Nazis were justified in initiating WWII.  But, with or without justification, the fact remains that the Nazis undoubtedly did initiate a shooting war.  That initiation precipitates brutal retaliation.  This retaliation is not a matter of right or wrong so much as a reflection of the mankind’s natural inclination to vengeance and brutality.

I find the following video fascinating as evidence of how easily a major truth of history can be concealed and effectively denied.  I’m not talking about who killed JFK (one death) or even who’s responsible for 9/11 (3,000 deaths).  I’m talking about allegations that, after WWII, not only were as many as one million German prisoners starved to death by the US Army, but those deaths may have been effectively concealed from the whole world.  Allegations that one million Germans may have been secretly killed by the Allies is particularly troubling given the background allegations that six million Jews (and others) were killed by the Nazis.

Who, if any, were the real “bad guys” of WWII?  The ones who allegedly killed six million prisoners or the ones who allegedly killed one million?

War may occasionally produce heroes, but it always produces monsters–both theirs and ours.

But how will we learn from history if we’re denied access to history’s lessons?   Many people won’t learn from history because they’re lazy or indifferent.  But many more won’t learn from history because it’s been concealed.

Who is more responsible for the bloody repetitions of history?  Those who refuse to learn the lessons of history or those those prevent those lessons from being seen?

    This would not have been the responsibility of the US Army, in any case. At the top of the chain of command in Europe was the Allied Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    So it was the Allies (the victors in World War II) not the United States who did this, to the extent it happened.

    And then there’s Dresden, the real holocaust, not the magic six million from the Zohar.

    Operations Sunrise and Paperclip describe how some post WW2 German soldiers met with a better fate.

    With a tear in eye, Thank you! for Truth, through Truth CAN come forgiveness and PEACE.
    It is this peace that ‘lower’ men have a hatred of, but it is possible for ‘us’ to achieve with determination.

    I had no idea the UNITED STATES was technically at war with Germany. I am now curious how many other countries the UNITED STATES is technically war with. A military despotism can only survive with war.

      The UNITED STATES is at war with Americans, have declared them “enemies of the State”. Consider President Obama’s “enemies list”, for example. Are we to believe this list is not a political one? He has already said so. Mark Levin is calling for repeal of the 17th Amendment (popular elections of Senators–non constitutional–they are to be appointments of the State’s Governor’s as representatives of the State, not the citizens.. the Congress Representatives are for that purpose!), for starters, and abolishing the IRS and the tax code, and more. Some state projects are calling for nullification, for seceding, for recalls of elected officials, for repeal of Federal pensions for “civil servants” (that one is a no brainer!), and reorganization and recognition of Citizens militias, and much more in the works.

      The works of Citizens like in this important effort by these individuals in the US and Germany, can succeed where the “State” efforts would never happen. Yet isn’t the main message that we want to hear is “WE THE PEOPLE”?!!!!!! not we the STATE.

      A revolution is coming, and we can do it now peacefully (but with great energy and persistence!), or it will come later, with bloodshed. But it will come. These efforts by the People are what we have to do, and bypass the obstructions of a bloated self serving out of touch State construct, and MAKE things happen for WE THE PEOPLE.

      The United States is not at war with Germany, technically or otherwise.

      The state of war between the United States and Germany ended in 1951 with an official proclamation by President Harry S. Truman.

      Don’t believe everything you see on YouTube.

    Reblogged this on The Blue Collar Economist and commented:
    This is amazing. Having lived in Berlin Germany for over 10 years, I find this shocking. I have heard of this happening. My in-laws never spoke of it either.

    “Yellow journalism, or the yellow press, is a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers. Techniques may include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, or sensationalism. By extension, the term yellow journalism is used today as a pejorative to decry any journalism that treats news in an unprofessional or unethical fashion.”

    Truth is SHOCKING to those who have been led to believe LIES…..

    in fact sometimes the Truth is also very OFFENSIVE.

    Germany is Judah.

    and the day of Jezreel swiftly approaches for the “HARVEST” of TARES.

    HANK WILLIAMS JR. concurred emphatically only last night under a SOOOOOPER MOON….

    even WILLIE ROBERTSON encouraged the ISRAELITES gathered to firm up their FAITH…

    TRUTH NEEDS NO DEFENSE and is not offended by those curious and brave enough to search


    like unto the admonition to think and behave as Kings & Priests

    we adjudicate {acquit} our selves individually by seeking to KNOW TRUTH….
