    The great thing about Germans is that they show up to work every day.

  • Tchoutoye

    National-Socialism wasn’t the enemy, it was the coveted prize to be snatched from the Germans.

    • Jin The Ninja

      i agree. it was about power and anglo-hegemony.
      not to mention the ‘great leader’ churchill was a fascist sympathiser.

      • Sanger

        The Nazi’s never died. They changed clothes. Instead of bullets and bombs it became takeovers and mergers. The EU is a Nazi manifestation.

  • BuzzCoastin

    Prescott Bush was Hitler’s Homeland bankster
    well into WW2
    that’s the first clue no one seems to have noticed

    • echar

      Jeb and George P. are goose stepping their way to the White House, to boot.

      • BuzzCoastin

        Prez is now a job for their servents
        it’s beneath them

        • echar

          That’s a disquieting vision.

    • Sanger

      Brown Brothers Harriman. He was convicted of the Trading with the Enemies Act. Do you honestly believe the other members of the Bush clan don’t go along with that political philosophy? Yet the masses coninue to vote for these fascist pukes. Soon it will be the Hispanic Bush in power.

      • BuzzCoastin

        not to mention the Brown Broz & the Harrimanz
        many their money in opium
        which is still a Bush family biz today

        • Sanger

          I am not privy to that info but if pre 911, Taliban controlled Afghan., resulted in 0% poppy crop output and post 911/Dubya/Mission Accomplished resulted in 120% poppy crop output I MOST CERTAINLY WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED IN THE SLIGHTEST.

  • echar

    Something I find interesting is that the other people who were killed are rarely mentioned. Such as the gypsies, and invalids.

    • Liam_McGonagle

      There is a hierarchy to suffering. Most people(s) just don’t count.

      • echar

        I think they deserve to be mentioned.

        • Jin The Ninja

          absolutely. proportionally more romani people were killed than any other group.i remember having an entire month in 6th grade dedicated to holocaust history and never once learning about either the romani history or GLBTQ history aspect. and very little mention of the slavs, jehovah witnesses, french africans et al.

          and not to minimise this conversation in any way, but i do owe you a lengthy response on another thread. i promise i am getting to it;).

          • echar

            The Romani get a scant mention at the D.C. Holocaust Museum. If my memory is correct, it was one small placard. Possibly the same for the others that were in the Nazi’s way.

          • Calypso_1

            Here is a Roma lament about Auswitzch from the documentary Latcho Drom
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqilRTwtT9k
            If the melody sounds familiar it was sampled by Deep Forrest & used in several dance mixes in the 90′s.

            I highly recommend the doc – it is incredible, and very difficult to find. Luckily on youtube.

          • echar

            Thank you.

  • echar

    America likely would not have won moon race, if not for operation paperclip. Wernher von Braun made that happen.

    • Sanger

      …so thank god for the NAZI’s??

      • echar

        Not at all.

        • Sanger

          I know…I was being facetious. There was definitely something weird going on with the Nazi scientists. One thing that you can count on though was that USSR got their fair share of scientists as well. In fact, they beat us to space.

          • echar

            That’s true.
