Does History Matter? Let’s Try April 20
April 20, 1889 was the birth date of Adolf Hitler, who was responsible for the Holocaust, in which he slaughtered approximately six million Jews, and tens of thousands of gentiles (Gypsies).
The Holocaust alone is reason enough to remember this date.
I realize that there is something called “International Holocaust Remembrance Day,” on January 27, but that’s a UN racket, as is most of what passes for commemorating the Holocaust.
There is also a National Holocaust Museum, but that is an installation of the federal government, which has no business being in the Holocaust business.
Understanding the significance of April 20 requires understanding what made Hitler possible, and how his evil has since been exploited.
No Armistice and no Versailles, no Hitler. In their triumphalism, the victors hit Germany twice. They demanded that Kaiser Wilhelm II abdicate his throne, and thus that the German Reich become the Weimar Republic. Thus was Germany’s cultural and political continuity destroyed. And the Versailles Treaty imposed the payment of war reparations to France and England that broke the postwar German economy. One of the few memories I have of social studies class as a kid was seeing Germans in 1923 carrying steamer trunks full of paper marks to the bakery, to pay for a single loaf of bread.
Mitte November 1923 kostet ein Kilo Roggenbrot 233 Milliarden Mark, ein Kilo Rindfleisch 4,8 Billionen.
In mid-November 1923, a kilo of rye bread cost 233 billion (Paper) Marks; a kilo of beef cost 4.8 trillion (Paper) Marks.
(At the time, one American dollar was worth 4.2 trillion Paper Marks.)
Had Germany still had a Kaiser (emperor), its people would have had a moral figure who could rally them through the hard times of Weimar. Throughout “die Republik ohne Republikaner” (“the Republic without Republicans”) the Germans hungered for a Kaiser substitute. And they got one, good and hard.
(Now, they don't even have a chancellor!)
None of the other losers—Turkey, Austria, or Hungary, whose empires were also dismantled by the victors—was forced to pay reparations.
After the war, communists, black supremacists, and their fellow travelers concocted the so-called civil rights movement, which they leveraged to turn American into a racial socialist dictatorship.
Over the past 52 years, racial socialists have imposed anti-white affirmative action, which they have extended, over the past 25-30 years, into “diversity training” in every workplace of any size. One gets further doses of diversity training in the propaganda on TV morning, noon, and night, and in what passes for news online and in print. And if you complain, they denounce you as a “white supremacist,” “neo-Nazi,” “xenophobe,” etc.
Hate crime hoaxes have been an institutionalized part of the fabric of life since 1986, promoted by the alliance of Hate, Inc. (the SPLC, NAACP, ADL, etc.) and the Lügenpresse.
Immediately after President Donald Trump won election on November 8, there were roughly 1,000 hate crime hoaxes, all of them promoted by the racial socialist SPLC, and over 100 of them false flag hoaxes at Jewish organizations.
Leaders of Hate, Inc., the loudest of whom was Steven Goldstein of the “Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect,” condemned President Trump for the “anti-Semitic” attacks.
Why condemn President Trump? Because, as every communist knows, Trump is a "Nazi," and the anti-Semitic hate crimes were the direct result of the hateful “rhetoric emanating from the White House.”
On February 21, thanks to a Journolist-style conspiracy, the evil media launched a coordinated, full frontal assault on the President. Trump condemned the “hate,” but also observed the attacks appeared to be fake to him.
And he was right!
The most outrageous performance I saw that day by someone purporting to be a reporter, was by CNN's Sunlen Serfaty, who condemned the President for doing too little, too late.
Serfaty didn’t even try to hide her hateful activism within a reportorial. She just ranted, full-bore.
Even if the incidents had not been hoaxes, what was the President to do about it? The feds were already on the job.
It was just the usual theater by the racial socialists of Hate, Inc. and the Evil Media trying to humiliate the President, because he’s a Republican, and they’re all Democrats, and steal the White House through a putsch.
Thus, we had a case of lies, on top of lies, on top of lies.
Donald Trump is the best friend the Jews have had in years. His racist predecessor was a dyed-in-the-wool anti-Semite, but the same people viciously condemning President Trump never had anything but applause for his predecessor.
The loudest voice of hate was that of one Steven Goldstein, of something called the “Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect.” I’d never heard of either before.
The Anne Frank Center, founded in 1959, used to be about the Holocaust. However, last year, its purpose was turned upside down.
Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect is a voice for social justice, fighting hatred of refugees and immigrants, Antisemitism, sexism, racism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, bias against the differently abled and any other hate that runs counter to American promise of freedom.“Social justice” is a code phrase for communism! But communists live for holocausts (genocide). While the Nazis slaughtered six million civilians, the Communists have slaughtered approximately 100 million civilians since October 1917.
Thus, the Anne Frank Center, which existed to warn about holocausts, now exists to bring them about!
When the “anti-Semitic” hate crimes were virtually all exposed as false flag incidents, did the Hate, Inkers apologize to President Trump and his supporters? Not at all. They just shamelessly doubled down. And Steven Goldstein was the loudest one of all! They’re pompous, hypocritical haters, the lot of ‘em, but Goldstein is apparently the most evil.
Goldstein has great a cover: A genocidal maniac hides out in an organization people associate with opposition to genocide.
Goldstein was hired by the newly constituted Anne Frank Center, after having made a name for himself as gay activist.
The only thing worse than a communist is a gay communist.
People love to quote George Santayana on the study of history.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.Unfortunately, because they have never read Santayana, they quote him out of context, and usually misquote the line in question, as well. Someone once plucked a line from Santayana, and either misquoted it, or another semi-literate did.
Santayana wasn’t talking about the study of history at all, but rather about how one human being learns and improves, something that he said is foreclosed to “savages,” infants, and the senile.
Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.Hegel, a thinker of whom I am not generally fond, had a very sensible outlook on the study of history.
Rulers, Statesmen, Nations, are wont to be emphatically commended to the teaching which experience offers in history. But what experience and history teach is this - that people and governments never have learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it. Each period is involved in such peculiar circumstances, exhibits a condition of things so strictly idiosyncratic, that its conduct must be regulated by considerations connected with itself, and itself alone.There are at least two reasons why the study of history is important: 1. Because all knowledge—if it is real knowledge—is valuable, in and of itself; and 2. Villains constantly seek to justify evil, by lying about the past.
