Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 26, 2014

The German newspaper Die Welt has revealed excerpts of the love letters of Heinrich Himmler, the Nazi military leader who was the builder and overseer of the concentration camps during the Holocaust. Himmler, Adolf Hitler's right-hand man, exchanged many letters with his wife, Margareth, as he was orchestrating the extermination of millions of Jews. "I'm heading to Auschwitz," he wrote in one missive. "Sending you kisses. Your Heini."

"Sending you kisses. Your Heini."

Gross, Heinrich. Kiss her on the lips.

"I'm so lucky to have such a bad husband who loves his bad wife just like she loves him."

Nazi's in love. Isn't it evil?

Hannah Arendt was right about "the banality of evil."

True, Doc.

Himmler probably had someone else write the letters.

In the end he killed his wife.

When I read a "news article" and the first popup out of their box of tricks is "like us on Facebook" and send more money to Suckerberg, I assume only that it is not and never will be from a credible respectable objective news source.

It is more pure propaganda attempting to convince all of the Americans with less, because of Israel, to send more to Israel and their USA bankers and lobbyists. Hey if Israel can't make a go of it with the help of its many billionaire thieving globalist bankers pals, why should Americans stuck with dead end jobs at Wal-Mart help?

" why should Americans stuck with dead end jobs at Wal-Mart help?" Someone has to pay for all the military hardware, Israel´s needs their tax base to give every one of it´s citizens comprehensive health care including free birth control and free abortions. Someone in the US is being very quiet about that.

Why does such evil fascinate us so? The only thing I learned from studying the National Socialist Workers Party and their rise to power is that none of them were extraordinary men. They capitalized on hate when hate was the common coin of the realm. So what should we learn from this? Maybe stop lessening to people who are quick to tell you what they stand ageist, but are ever so slow to say what the are for. (What is your agenda?) should be the first question of of a skeptic's mouth. Too many true believers on the left for much critical thinking.

It might have something to do with all the force fed history of "good" people we went through in school.

Or it might be there's something wrong with us.

Whatever the case I'd love it if the history channel spent as much time on peace makers as they do on monsters.

Amen. How do people admire Caesar or Napoleon except to be taught so?
Anyone who does not admire Brutus simply likes tyranny.

Figures; I'm wearing boxers.

The OED says it's manoeuvre, but the 'Merkin dictionaries say manoeuver is OK, but nonstandard. They prefer maneuver. I was going to type manœuvre in honor of Napoleon, but thought it a tad too recherché.

That's what I meant. Julius was the one who destroyed the republic. Brutus and the senate fought him.
To support a republic means opposing Julius Caesar. He was a tyrant and yet is admired.

King Edward the VIII
Gave up the fate
of Britain a while ago

To marry a Yank
Whose aspect did stank
and most people called a Ho.

And then one day
He heard her say
Dear do bring that nice Bordeaux

And clean your spot
It smells like rot
And that monocle's got to go.

Then Himmler arrived
and von Ribbentrop, too
And the party was in full swing.

With a flying helmet,
an egg whisk, too
But the wet celery was just the thing.

And thus concludes
The trysty tales
Of high society

But remember to bring
The most important thing:
An egg whisk and wet celery.

I don't see Himmler, and I certainly don't see any wet celery. Could your ditty be apocrypha?

Some purist would remind me they call Bordeaux "Claret" in Britain. But since Mrs Simpson was an American, well, I figgered I could get away with it. Plus, it rhymes with Ho so much better.

Himmler could have driven his Panzer through your fundament all night -- an hole division for sure, I wager -- and never found a Britcom. You know why? No headlamps, a feature commonly lacking in that era.

Tanks had headlamps. French ones had yellow fresnel lenses on them like their cars...ostensibly to not annoy oncoming traffic before they busted a cap in someone's fundament.

True enough. I found this guy in there and he had the lights on. Said he hadn't seen a Britcom.
