One is the act of a defeated man, the other is an act of a courageous man.

TPTB prefer the former.

It helps if you have a match.  And a candle for that matter.  And you can find them, in the darkness, which you're cursing.

Aside: a lot of gun control quotes attributed to Nazis are bogus (or at the very least poorly documented). Not sure about the Himmler one, but it sounds too perfect to be genuine.

You are correct. They like to make up quotes that say what they want the Nazis to say.

Here is one from Unknown:

Start a fire, keep a man warm for an hour. Start a man on fire, keep him warm for life.

When there is a government that does horrible things, comprised of people who are behind these things, it is very good to expose it as often as possible.

However, when TPTB make up quotes, make up atrocities, make up or distort history, they cast doubt on the things that did actually happen, the things that were actually written, said, done. When we repeat these false things, we aid and abet the distortion of history.

Nazi has become the boogieman. Hitler has become a cartoon.

Hitler was a bad man. Stalin was a bad man. Mao was a bad man. FDR was a bad man.

Hitler invaded other countries, he put people he deemed 'lesser' in slave labor camps, including German homosexuals, handicapped, mental retards and defectives, Jews, political opponents, etc. In Poland he filled the slave labor camps with Polish Roman Catholics, Gypsies, Jews. Once worked out, or deemed unable to work, they were killed. Or they died from malnutrition, working to death, various plagues and illnesses.

Let us try to stick to the truth about them [Stalin, Hitler, Mao, FDR], and we will do a service for humanity.  Lies are lies, no matter who you are making them up about.

Example: we have heard over and over and over about the Jews dying in the death camps, movie after movie after movie and books and magazines and on and on.

Where is the movie about the millions of Polish Roman Catholics who died in those slave labor camps? Did they deserve to die? Why does Hollywood lie by omission? Polish Christians are not worth as much as Jews?

Only one documentary I can find about how Stalin starved the Ukrainians to death. Made in a liberated East Bloc country. I guess the Jews that run Hollywood only find Nazis killing Jews worth making a movie about, millions of dead Christians in the Ukraine is of no interest to them.

When they finally did make a movie about the resistance in the Ukraine, it was about the Jews. Not the rebel Army that fought Stalin under the Black Flag until into the 1950's. Nope. No Jews involved.

Making up false quotes about Nazis isn't Nazi bashing, it is called lying. You pro-lying, A.W.E.S.O.M.-) 4000?

Why don't we claim the Nazis put he Americans of Japanese decent into Concentration Camps? They deserve it, right? If I said they were behind FDR doing that, and you said it was incorrect, would that make you a defender of Nazis?

You are a brainwashed drone I think.

You make a very good point, but you may have missed an implied /sarc tag.  Recall the classic exchange between "Jiminy Glick" (Martin Short) and Mel Brooks:

JG: What's your… what's your big beef with the Nazis?
MB: What's my big beef?!
JG: Yes, it seems like you're always knockin'…
MB: What's my big beef with the Nazis?!
JG: Everything you do, you're always knockin' the Nazis. "Oh, let's… it's time for Mel Brooks to knock the Nazis", it seems.
MB: Oh, I don't know, I think they're rude.

You may not be in the mood for that sort of thing, but I think that's what was intended.

Than you for this great post.

Hollywood can't make a movie about soviets killing people because most of people controlling soviet union were Jews.

The history of WWII makes more sense if put in proper context of Zionism.

Jews in Europe were an intellectual elite of Jewish world, and they were against Zionism because it is against their religion to fight actively to reestablish holly land.

Jews in USA were the financial elite and have seen great interest in active fight and of course in borrowing fiat money to both sides.

WWII solved this great conflict.

all sentiments i share, Mr. Howard.

i'll only add that you forgot about nazi persecution of seventh day adventist, gypises, 'slavs', etc. ad infinitum.

the great crime of fascism (corporatism) is its lust for uniformity.  this is the devil of our modern age:  the compulsion to compel conformity, wherever deviation from the 'norm' occurs.

it is my mission to 'liquidate' normalizers -- a genocide of the 'gentrifiers'; hopefully, i won't have to actually follow through.  for now, we shall only warn them.

 there is a black flag risin from the capstone of the new ediface. 

so, yes, common man, an auto-de-fe everday may not keep tptb at bay; but it will signal something clear and resonate to satan: TAKE US FUCKING SERIOUSLY BEFORE WE START DRAGGIN YOU FROM YOUR HOMES AND LIGHTING YOU ON FIRE!!!

everyday my bloodlust grows.

every single day.

give up now, tptb.

i hear you gordon brown; i hear you jimmy carville.

i say MORE!

i say ALL!

i say NOW!

REVOLUTION IS AN IDEA THAT HAS FOUND ITS BAYONETTES.

A TRUE MAN HATES NO ONE.

DEATH IS NOTHING; BUT TO LIVE DEFEATED AND INGLORIOUS IS TO DIE EVERYDAY.

GLORY IS FLEETING BUT OBSCURITY IS FOREVER.

IMAGINATION RULES THE WORLD.

YOU MUST NEVER FEAR DEATH, MY BOYS; DEFY HIM, AND DRIVE HIM INTO THE ENEMY'S RANKS!

THE STRONG MAN IS THE ONE WHO IS ABLE TO INTERCEPT, AT WILL, THE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE SENSES AND THE MIND.

THE TRUEST WISDOM IS A RESOLUTE DETERMINATION.

THERE ARE TWO FORCES IN THIS WORLD: THE SWORD AND THE SPIRIT.  IN THE LONG RUN, THE SWORD WILL ALWAYS BE CONQUERED BY THE SPIRIT.

Maybe the Mayor is warning the city that there will be riots in the upcoming months.

Maybe he's signaling that the city will be more tolerant if people choose to rally to express discontent.

Maybe he's signaling that it's understandable people will want to protest because they're upset.
