While many norms and cultural beliefs have evaporated or mutated over the past quarter century, one absolute article of faith remains: we were the good guys in World War II. Sure we firebombed women and children in Dresden and Tokyo, and dropped a couple of atom bombs on women and children at Hiroshima and Nagasaki but that is Ok because they started it. They had it coming. Anyway we won and made the world “safe for democracy” so that makes it OK. Eggs and omelets.
We Were The Goods Guys! Weren’t We?
While not here to rehash that, Black Pigeon Speaks has a new and very disturbing video that looks at one of the most forbidden topics concerning World War II: the rampant rape of German women by the Red Army as they rampaged across Germany and into Berlin.
Thanks to a media and entertainment blackout of this topic, combined with the endless propaganda portraying anything to do with Germany as the ultimate evil, very few people know about this and of the ones who do know, they just don’t care thanks to the caricaturization of the German people as the embodiment of evil.
It took the combined forces of the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. to defeat Germany. Either one alone wouldn’t have been enough. The question we should ask is this: was it worth it to get into bed with a monster like Stalin to “liberate” Europe? I used to think I knew the answer but now? Let’s just say my opinion has changed pretty radically.
