Hitler never gassed London

Filed under: Germany, Uncategorized, World War II — furtherglory @ 4:56 pm

Sean Spicer had it right the first time.  Hitler did not sink so low as to use poison gas.  Hitler could have loaded up his V-2 rockets with a nerve agent called Tabun and dropped the rockets into London.  This would have wiped out most of the city’s population.  The Germans manufactured at least 12,000 tons of Tabun between 1942 and 1945.

You can read all about it on wikipedia here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabun_(nerve_agent)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabun_(nerve_agent)

But Hitler never “sunk to using poison gas” against England, nor against Russia, nor against the Americans when they invaded Europe after D-Day.

I have read claims that, after the bombing of Dresden,  Goebbels suggested that Germany should retaliate with poison gas, and by shooting all of the downed pilots, but Hitler rejected the idea.

Sean Spicer apologized Tuesday after saying Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons”

Listen up people!

Get the facts straight about the Holocaust and Hitler’s use of Zyklon-B gas to kill handicapped children and Jews.

You can read about the gas chamber used at Auschwitz on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Auschwitz1/Auschwitz08.html

The first thing that I saw on TV this morning was a very subdued Sean Spicer apologizing for his mistakes when he talked about gassing people. It was mentioned that handicapped children were gassed, implying that these children had only a minor handicap.

You can read about the handicapped children who were killed at Hartheim on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Hartheim/exhibits01.html

You can read the latest news about Spicer at https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/11/sean-spicers-hitler-holocaust-speak-volumes

My photo of the reconstructed gas input device at Hartheim Castle where handicapped children were gassed

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Under the rule of Adolf Hitler, German authorities, beginning in 1939, gassed millions of people to death. The first victims were German citizens deemed handicapped and thus “unfit for life.”

End quote

On my website, you can read about the gas chamber at Hartheim Castle, and see photos of the gas chamber where handicapped people were killed: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Hartheim/gaschamber01a.html

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

After Germans with local assistance had shot about a million Jews in Eastern Europe, gassing was added as a second technique of mass murder. Jews were killed by carbon monoxide at Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka, and by hydrogen cyanide at Auschwitz.

Spicer’s comments on Tuesday must be understood in the context of how the White House chose to reflect upon Holocaust Memorial Day in January: by deliberately ignoring the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. This is the key to the whole affair: the White House cannot acknowledge the basic politics of the Holocaust.

This incredible statement by Spicer – which erases the use of deadly chemical agents by Nazi Germany – fits very well into the general historical politics of the Trump administration. The name of Hitler is invoked to criticize the enemy of the moment (today Assad, not long ago American intelligence officers).

The general consequence is to minimize the scale of Hitler’s crimes: we are instructed that intelligence agencies are acting like Nazi Germany, or we learn what Hitler supposedly did not do. And this is an administration that is not very clear on what Adolf Hitler in fact did.

Denial is back in the news

Filed under: David Irving, Holocaust, movies, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 1:37 pm

Denial is back in the news and I don’t mean a river in Egypt. I am writing about a movie about the Holocaust, which has the title “Denial.”

You can read about it in this news article:

http://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/film/91395674/denial-director-mick-jackson-tells-how-he-touched-the-holocaust-with-his-hands

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

Denial opens in New Zealand cinemas on April 13.

It wasn’t that the holocaust touched  British filmmaker Mick Jackson, more that he touched it.

That’s what persuaded the former The Bodyguard and LA Story director to return to big screen filmmaking after 14 years to make Denial.

Based on Holocaust scholar Deborah Lipstadt’s book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier, it dramatists her defence against David Irving’s charges of libel. He claimed she was part of a worldwide conspiracy attempting to discredit him as a historian.

short poem written by a Holocaust survivor

You can read a short poem, written by a Holocaust survivor, here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/harry-borden-survivor-photography_us_58ebf7e8e4b0c89f9120b711

Begin quote:

In Limbo
In the black hole of our
Planet Earth
Auschwitz
They drove me out when it ceased to be;
Yet who will drive it out of me?
It still exists.
Only death will be my exorcist.

End quote

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that “Limbo” is a place where Catholics go if they have not been baptized before they die.  I don’t think that there were ever any Jews in Limbo. On the other hand, there were Catholic prisoners in the Nazi death camps, and this poem was probably written by a Catholic.

Here is one definition of limbo which you can read at

the evil of the Holocaust is beyond debate

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 8:34 am

The title of my blog post today is half of a sentence in this news article: http://www.syracuse.com/opinion/index.ssf/2017/04/holocaust_lesson_gone_bad_becomes_a_teachable_moment_editorial.html

Here is the other half of the sentence:

“it is not beyond teaching.”

Has anything that has ever happened in the entire history of the world ever been taught more than the Holocaust has been taught?  I don’t think so.

Here is a photo and a quote from the beginning of the article:

Holocaust Museum Shooting
People line up to enter the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., in this 2009 file photo. It and other commemorative sites exist to keep alive the memory of the Jewish genocide and diaspora, so that it may never happen again. (Alex Brandon / AP)

Two Oswego County students who were assigned to defend the Nazi’s “Final Solution,” the systematic extermination of Europe’s Jews during World War II, showed courage and humanity by refusing. Their actions mean that no other student in New York state will be forced to justify genocide. It is an indefensible position. New York Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia agrees. Elia said her initial response to a Syracuse.com reporter’s question about the assignment – that it might prompt critical thinking – was made before she reviewed the facts. Elia declared the assignment “wrong” – a call she should have made from the start. She has since banned future assignments along these lines.

End quote

I was a child when the Holocaust was happening, and I heard about it in elementary school. I learned that Jews were being gassed. I knew what that meant because I had seen the gas chamber in Jefferson City, Missouri, on a school trip. I though that the Jews were being gassed, two at a time, like condemned prisoners in Missouri were gassed after they had been convicted of murder or some other serious crime.

My first thought was “what crime did the Jews commit, which caused them to be gassed like common criminals”?

Almost everyone in the world today believes that the Jews were holocausted for no reason. But is that true? No, dear reader, the Jews were holocausted because they had a long history of lying, stealing and cheating.  There is an old saying: After you shake hands with a Jew, count your fingers.

As a child, I lived in Osage County, which was named after a tribe of Indians, now known as Native Americans. These students were from Oswego county, which was also named after a tribe of Indians. These students should be learning about what Americans did to the Native Americans; they should be studying the “trail of tears” not what happened to Jews in other countries.

What qualifies Jared Kushner to run the US govrnment as the acting president

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 7:54 am

On my blog post today, I am commenting on a news article which you can read in full at http://mashable.com/2017/04/09/jared-kushner-blank-stare/#1zIwTdHkEPqq

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Jared Kushner has a lot going on. His father-in-law, President Donald J. Trump, has a bunch of quick tasks he’d like Jared, a White House senior advisor, to get right on.

These include:

That Kush, a 36-year-old real estate developer, has no experience in any of these areas is of no real importance to his father-in-law.

End quote

Jared Kushner

Jared Kushner is married to Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka, and he has a degree from Harvard,  but he has no official position in the US government. In spite of that, he is Trump’s top adviser on government business. Trump has turned the government over to Jared while he spends his time at his home in Florida.

Comparing Planned Parenthood abortions to the Holocaust is fair game

Filed under: Health, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 4:16 pm

The title of my blog post today is the title of a news article in the Kiowa County Signal by Rich Kiper. You can read the article in full here: http://www.kiowacountysignal.com/opinion/20170402/rich-kiper-comparing-planned-parenthood-abortions-to-holocaust-is-fair

Kiper is defending the remarks of Senator Fitzgerald, who compared the seven million babies killed by planned parenthood to the six million Jews killed in the holocaust.

I blogged about this same article once before in a blog post entitled “I have been to Dachau” which you can read here: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2017/04/03/i-have-been-to-dachau/  I am writing more about this article from a different angle.

The following is a quote from the Kiowa Signal news article:

Begin Quote

Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, Planned Parenthood has performed 6,937,406 abortions. This number is based on PP annual reports of 1978-2014 and studies conducted on PP abortions between 1973 and 1978. The numbers do not include abortions performed in 2015 and 2016. Therefore, according to its own reports, PP has exterminated more babies that the Nazis exterminated Jews during the Holocaust. Based on the numbers, Sen. Fitzgerald is correct in that PP is “more insidious than (the Nazis).”

End Quote

Was planned parenthood more insidious than the Nazis?

Begin Quote from Kiawa County Signal news article:

Sen. Fitzgerald is right to be angry with an organization that has killed more babies than the Nazis killed Jews….

He [Fitzgerald] did, though, very clearly compare PP aborting 6,937,406 unwanted babies to the Nazi killing of six million unwanted Jews. Abortion is a horrific act that involves killing an unborn child. Pro-life adherents should praise Sen. Fitzgerald for having the courage to speak truth, knowing full well that he would be subjected to attack by those for whom facts are irrelevant and the life of the unborn is not sacred.

End quote from news article

I think that Kiper is confused.  The Jews are sacred; unborn Children are not.  I am surprised that I need to explain this to you people.

If this were not the case, we would need to be building a lot more monuments to the 7 million children insidiously murdered by planned parenthood.

The annual “March of the Living” is coming up soon

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 3:20 pm

During the annual March of the Living, Jewish students from Israel, and from many other countries around the world, march from the gatehouse at Auschwitz-Birkenau to the International monument which is at the other end of the camp.

My photo of the Auschwitz-Birkenau gatehouse, taken from inside the camp

My 2005 photo of the International Monument

The first time that I ever visited Auschwitz was in 1998. I had  hired a tour guide who flew to Poland from New York City and met me at my hotel in Warsaw. She warned me, that if I ever wanted to come back to visit Auschwitz at some time in the future, that I should avoid the time when young people from Israel would be there for the annual “March of the Living.”

I took her advice and was never there during the annual “March of the Living”.  It is too late for me now — I will never get to see the Jewish victory march through what is left of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp.

My 2005 photo shows another view of the International Monument

Today, I was alerted to the annual “March of the Living” in this recent news article in the Jerusalem Post: http://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Elie-Wiesels-son-to-light-torch-at-March-of-the-Living-486497

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote:

The focus of this year’s event –the 29th of its kind– is how to preserve the memory and lessons of the Holocaust after the last survivor has passed away.

In the framework of the march, Ministers of Education from 12 European countries will participate in an unprecedented gathering on the eve of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, organized by March of the Living organizers and the Austrian Federal Minister for Education, Dr. Sonja Hammerschmid.

“Every country and society has its own episodes of painful history, be it connected to events of mass violence, to colonialism or others” said Hammerschmid. “Austria and Austrian schools need to confront the long history of antisemitism, including before the rise of the Nazis, and especially the involvement of so many Austrians in atrocities during World War II – and foremost the Holocaust. We in Austria feel privileged to learn from the experiences of other countries – like Israel – and we gladly invite others to share ours.”

Over 10,000 youths from around the world will participate in the march, alongside an honorary delegation of 75 Holocaust survivors from different countries, the eldest of which is 103 years old.

Should American bombers have punished the Nazi soldiers for operating gas chambers at Auschwitz?

Filed under: Germany, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 7:53 am

Don’t worry if you can’t understand the title of my blog post. I can’t understand it myself.

The quote in the title of my blog post comes from a news article, which claims that Trump has taken away American’s shame for inaction against the Germans who gassed the Jews.

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/international-affairs/327809-trumps-response-to-syrian-bloodshed-lifts-the-stain

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the Germans who gassed the Jews are all dead now. It is too late to take action against them.

The following quote is from the news article:

Trump’s response to Syrian bloodshed lifts the stain of American inaction

Begin quote

America needs unity. And if we can’t unite around the United States finally taking action after Arab children are gassed, then nothing will bring us together.

For those who waited four long years to see the United States reclaim its moral mantle as leader of the free world and protector of human rights, the news that President Trump struck at the Syrian tyrant Assad is electrifying. I am well aware that many in America object to Donald Trump. But is there a higher calling for a president than to stop mass murder, and should we not salute bold leadership when it sends a message that genocide will not be tolerated?

End quote

In other words, if Trump had been America’s president during World War II, he would have bombed the alleged gas chamber at Auschwitz — and killed everyone in the camp.

The gas chamber in the Auschwitz main camp was across the street from a hospital where wounded German soldiers were being treated.

KremaI.jpeg

The photo above shows the SS hospital which was across the street from the alleged gas chamber.

My early morning photo of the hospital for wounded German soldiers that was across the street from the Auschwitz gas chamber

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that it would have been a war crime to have killed wounded enemy soldiers in a hospital.

The news article continues with this quote;

Begin quote

Just think for a moment how the Jews of the concentration camps of Europe would have felt had they seen American bombers punishing the Nazi soldiers for operating gas chambers at Auschwitz. Sadly, those bombers never came, and still today historians debate how a moral man like Franklin Roosevelt could have stayed his hand against Hitler’s machinery of death.

It’s always something…

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 12:07 pm

The phrase “It’s always something!” is usually followed by the sentence: “You can never bow low enough to the Jews”.

The latest complaint, by the Jews, is that there is a Catholic Church at Auschwitz-Birkenau which was, at one time, a building where Jews were incarcerated.

Old photo of Catholic church which was used to incarcerate Jews

My 2005 photo of the same building

This is old news. I wrote about this previously at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2016/08/01/the-jews-say-that-the-catholic-church-at-birkenau-must-be-moved/

The road at the bottom of my photo above curves around, on the right hand side, and enters the ruins of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. The organized tours of the camp did not go to this spot when I visited the camp for the 2nd time in 2005. I found it by myself.
