Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,
So Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?
According to a news article, which you can read in full here, eBay has refused to list Hermann Goering’s Mercedes Benz for sale.
eBay says its policies prohibit listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence or racial, sexual or religious intolerance
Good for eBay! Who would want a Mercedes Benz after it had been touched by the filthy hands of a Nazi? Goering’s Mercedes promotes and glorifies racial hatred and religious intolerance. Throw this car on the scrap heap!
This quote is from the news article:
Hermann Goering founded Hitler’s Gestapo secret police and was a prime architect of the Nazi Holocaust.
A fighter pilot in the First World War, Goering went on to join Hitler’s Nationalist Socialist Party and eventually became his deputy in 1939.
Goering was the head of the SA, also known as the Brownshirts, and helped Heinrich Himmler set up Germany’s concentration camps.
In 1938, he became head of Germany’s armed forces and when the Second World War broke out the following year, he was put in charge of the Luftwaffe and led the Nazi air force during the Battle of Britain.
Following Hitler’s suicide in 1945, Goering surrendered to the U.S. Army in Austria.
He was found guilty of war crimes at the Nuremberg trials and was sentenced to death.
However, he cheated the hangman’s noose by killing himself in his cell aged 53 with a phial of hidden cyanide.
He was known as a Nazi ‘magpie’ and amassed a personal fortune through the confiscation of Jewish property.
His collection included paintings, tapestries, jewellery, hunting ornaments, altarpieces and rugs.
At the Nuremberg IMT, Goering denied everything. I blogged about his Nuremberg testimony at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/10/19/goering-testified-at-nuremberg-that-neither-he-nor-hitler-knew-nothing-about-the-mass-murder-in-the-concentration-camps/
The German people can never be forgiven. The Nazis gassed 6 million Jews, so don’t even try to exonerate Hermann Goering — or the car in which he once rode through the streets of Nazi Germany!
Revenge, revenge, revenge — the battle cry of the Jews!
