Here’s something that I saw on Facebook:

A haiku we offer in apology to our children on the course of action we took to arrive at the world we’ll leave them:

In retrospect, we
Will say, “It seemed like a good
Idea at the time”.

I need add nothing more to that…

21 February 2018. “Do Russians Want War?” No… But Trump and Chilly Hilly Do!

“Remember the Meeting on the Elbe!” This Sov-era poster evokes the incident related in the song below… it focuses on the positive… quite unlike the Trump and Clinton filth. Russians don’t want war… but the War Witch and  Dimwit Donnie do…

******

Kvatro is one of my fave ensembles. English subtitles… “Do Russians Want War?” NO! Remember, President Putin’s brother lies in the Piskorovskoye Memorial Cemetery in Piter… a child victim of the German fascists. America wants to walk in their footsteps…

________________________

“Do Russians want war?” No… the last time, MILLIONS died. MILLIONS. Let that sink in. Eighty times as many Soviet citizens died in that war as did Americans… most of them civilians murdered by the Germans. We were “Untermenschtum”… “Subhumanity”, unfit to be masters in our own house. The Americans made common cause with the fascists after World War II… Truman allowed that. Anyone who was anti-communist and was willing to kiss the Americans’ ass got a “Get Out of Jail Free” card. Today, the USA supports the children of fascist collaborators in the Ukraine, the Baltics, Croatia, Kosovo, and elsewhere.

Honour the legacy of the Anti-Hitler Coalition or honour the legacy of fascism. They’re the only two options on offer… choose wisely.

Sophie Scholl Was Beheaded at 21 for Standing Up to the Nazis: She Distributed Anti-Nazi Pamphlets at the University of München

_________________________

Like most German children in the 1930s, Sophie Scholl and her five siblings joined Nazi youth groups. However, Sophie and her brother Hans grew outraged that educated Germans went along with racist Nazi policies. In 1942, the two siblings, along with their friend Christoph Probst, amongst others, started a secret society known as the White Rose Circle. The group painted anti-Nazi slogans on the campus of the University of München and distributed pamphlets detailing the genocide of Jewish people. A White Rose pamphlet read:

Since the conquest of Poland, 300,000 Jews have been murdered, a crime against humanity.

They implored readers not to be complicit:

Who among us has any conception of the dimensions of shame that will befall us and our children when one day the veil falls from our eyes and the most horrible crimes reach the light of day?

Scholl’s father, an avowed anti-Nazi arrested for criticising Hitler to a colleague, raised his children to stand up for what they believed in their hearts:

What I want for you is to live in uprightness and freedom of spirit, no matter how difficult that proves to be.

His words were prophetic. In October 1943, a Nazi court sentenced Sophie and Hans Scholl, along with Christoph Probst, to death by guillotine. Before her execution at the age of 21, Sophie said:

Such a fine sunny day and I have to go. However, what does my death matter if thousands of people are awakened through us and stirred to action?”

Brother Ajamu on One Percent Warmongering

_________________________

War isn’t inevitable. Don’t let them convince you of that. Don’t let them march your sons and daughters, brothers and uncles off to fight for the One Percent under the guise of fighting for our “national interests” or the threat posed by some poor Third-World nation.
