“Propaganda can be pro or con. In neither case does it have to be negative. The only thing that is important is whether or not its words are true and genuine expressions of a people’s values . . . Good propaganda does not need to lie, indeed it may not lie. It has no reason to fear the truth. It is a mistake to believe that people cannot take the truth. They can. It is only a matter of presenting the truth to people in a way that they will be able to understand. A propaganda that lies proves that it has a bad cause. It cannot be successful in the long run.” – Joseph Goebbels, Speech, September, 1934.
On the Eighth and Ninth of May every year, respectively, the West and Russia celebrate Victory Day. “Victory Day” commemorates the Allied triumph over Germany in World War II. As we look back at that horrific world conflagration with seventy-five years of hindsight, we’re forced to ask ourselves who really won that war. Was it really a “victory” for the forces of Freedom? Did the Allies truly “liberate” Europe? Were the true villains brought to justice or were scapegoats destroyed instead? This “Victory Day” we should ask ourselves for whom was this “victory”?
Long ago, I came to the conclusion that the Allies lost World War II. We lost it both morally and in terms of stated objectives. This piece won’t focus on the morality of the war except in passing, but instead will focus on the stated objectives. The Allies’ ostensible reason for entering the war in Europe was to liberate Poland and bring “democracy” to oppressed people. Democracy is a terrible thing to inflict on anyone, but that’s a discussion for a different time. Let’s focus on the first reason for bombing the whole of Europe into a smoking crater: The liberation of Poland.
We’re compelled to ask ourselves the obvious question: Was Poland liberated as a consequence of the war? When we ask the honest question, it leads to the honest answer: No. Far from regaining its sovereignty, Poland lost its independence to the Soviet Union and suffered under brutal communist domination for forty-five years. This lone fact nullifies any pretense to noble motives on the part of Russia, Britain, France, or, later, the United States.
Here’s a fact most history teachers and university professors won’t tell you; namely, that Britain and France started World War II. This isn’t conjecture – it’s unimpeachable fact. On September 1, 1939, Hitler’s Germany seized Polish-occupied German territory after thousands of ethnic Germans had been assaulted, driven from their homes, and, in some prominent cases, massacred, by Polish military forces. The plunder, persecution, rape, and murder naturally inflamed tensions. Yet, these genocidal crimes have been almost wholly erased from popular memory. Nevertheless, they happened and were documented.
Before circumstances prevented them from continuing, the German government counted as many as 58,000 Germans in Poland who had either been sadistically murdered or who had become unaccounted for (nearly 13,000 of these had been confirmed dead). The persecutions long began before Hitler liberated his people and continued until the ruthless Polish government surrendered. Germans were castrated, raped, mutilated, locked in churches and burned to death, and so forth. The most infamous massacre occurred on September 3 in Bromberg, Poland. 3,000 German civilians were raped and slaughtered by the Poles in what was called “Bloody Sunday.” Did you learn about any of these Polish atrocities in history class? If not, perhaps you should ponder why not.
These atrocities alone are reason enough for a nation to avenge themselves on the aggressor, yet even more provocations were hurled at Germany by Poland before Hitler made his final decision to attack. For instance, maps had recently been circulated in Poland showing Poland’s borders extending well beyond Berlin, inferring a Polish attack on Germany. In hindsight, we’re tempted to laugh at the idea of a Polish attack on Germany. However, in 1939, Poland’s military was actually larger than Germany’s. In 1938, Poland’s military had invaded and conquered part of neighboring Czechoslovakia. And let’s not forget that Poland attacked Germany after World War I and had been hostile ever since.
The real hinge-point of it all, however, was Poland’s refusal to return the port city of Danzig, with its 96% German population, to Germany. This was the crux of the conflict. Germany needed Danzig. Danzig was a German city occupied by the Poles despite being under League of Nations control. And the Germans in Danzig wanted to return to the German Reich. Despite this, Poland’s government patently refused to negotiate. Hitler made various proposals, including a road linking Germany proper to Danzig. But of course Poland refused to do the right thing and return German territory to Germany.
After all of these Polish provocations, the Polish military was mobilized against Germany. Mobilization was considered an act of war. Sporadic military actions by Poland occurred at the border. Threats poured out constantly from Warsaw. The Polish regime was not afraid to take such provocative steps because they were bolstered by secret British guarantees of support in the event of war (FDR also stuck his Marxist nose into European affairs and encouraged Poland not to negotiate). Thus, Polish leaders rejected multiple extremely generous peace offers from Hitler, cut off all civil diplomacy, and geared up for war.
After relations broke down, his offers were rejected, and Germans in Poland began to be attacked, Hitler made his decision to retake the rightful German territory stolen at the end of World War I and kept in limbo by the Treaty of Versailles. When German troops steamrolled through Poland’s inept military on the First of September, Hitler visited Danzig and gave a remarkable speech. He laid out the reasons for war. I share a lengthy excerpt from the speech below. As you read, know that this is real history – a far cry from the Establishment propaganda in our history books.
“As for me, what made me most indignant was that we had to bear this illtreatment and oppression from a nation standing far below us; for when all is said and done, Germany is really a Great Power, even though the others attempted to exterminate us through the Treaty of Versailles.
“Especially intolerable were two circumstances. Here, first, a city, whose German character cannot be doubted, was not only prevented from joining the German Reich but attempts were also made through the years to colonise it for Poland. Secondly, a German province was cut off from the Reich and allowed only one means of communication with it in a way that permitted all kinds of trickery.
“No other country in the world would have borne this state of affairs as long as Germany has. I do not know what Great Britain would have said to such a peaceful solution at her cost or what would have been done by France or America. I tried to find a solution. I submitted proposals orally to those in power in Poland at that time. They knew these proposals—they were more than moderate. I tried to reconcile the economic demands of Poland with the German character of Danzig.
“At that time I was too modest, and there were moments in which I asked myself the question whether I could demand of my own people that such proposals should be made to the Polish Government. What I did, I did to save the German People and the Polish people from other sufferings. . . .
“Poland’s answer was first mobilisation; and then wild terror began. My request to the Polish Foreign Minister to visit me in Berlin was rejected. Instead, every month there were continually increasing threats, which are not bearable when they come from a small State, and in the long run are quite impossible even from a great Power. . . .
“The Polish marshal, who has now left his army woefully in the lurch, declared that he would cut our army to pieces.
“The martyrdom of our countrymen began. I have put to myself the question: Who could have blinded Poland thus? It is that same place in which the universal warmongers have sat and are still sitting, not only for the last ten years, but for centuries. It was there that the Poles were persuaded to resist Germany. There a guarantee was given to Poland. There the Poles were given the opportunity to begin war.
“For these men Poland was only a pawn in the game; to-day these men are calmly saying that it is no longer a question of Poland, but of the German Government. I have constantly uttered warnings against Churchill, Eden, Duff Cooper, and the rest; but I was laughed at.
“You know the developments of those days in August. I believe it would have been possible to avoid war were it not for the British guarantee and the incitement of these apostles of war. I was ready to negotiate directly with Poland, but the Poles did not turn up. Instead, there was the Polish general mobilisation, new acts of terror, endless attacks on German soil.
“But patience in national affairs must not be mistaken for weakness. I looked on for years until at last I declared that I would talk to Poland in the same language as Poland intended to use with us. Even then peace could still have been secured. Mussolini offered to mediate; France agreed. But Great Britain refused this proposal and thought that she could send the German Reich a two-hour ultimatum.
“In November 1918 the English had in Germany a Government which bore with them, and they have confused the present authorities with those of that day. In the last six years I have had to put up with all this, above all from the Poles. Nevertheless, I did not issue any ultimatum. To-day the German Reich is not letting others talk to her in that way.
“Poland chose war and had it. She chose war with a light heart because the Western statesmen had cheated her about Germany, because they had told her of the weakness of the German army, of internal defeatism, of the gulf between Leadership and the people, and of their bad organisation. The Poles had been told that it would be easy, not only to hold up the German troops, but to make them retreat. Poland has learned in eighteen days how they have been lied to. . . .
“In eighteen days we have defeated the Poles, and now we hope to arrange a situation in which a tolerable solution will be found by reasonable means in the future. . . .
“. . . Germany has limited, but firm, demands and will realise them one way or another. . . .
“. . . Germany has striven with great self-sacrifice to accept definitive frontiers in the west and south. We believe that this would have succeeded if the warmongers had not had an interest in the breakdown of European peace.
“I have no war aims against England and France. I have tried to maintain peace with these countries and to establish friendly relations between the British and. the German nations. I have also told France that I have no further aspirations in the West. I have especially striven, after the settlement of the Saar transfer, to prevent any conflict or any propaganda which could provoke hostility. You also already know my offer to Great Britain. . . .
“. . . Many people will say that the German nation is not so enthusiastic as in 1914. It is indeed much more enthusiastic. It is filled with a fanatical determination. It possesses the enthusiasm of men who know what war is. We do not feed on any artificial jingoism. We know how awful these happenings are; but we are determined to see this event through to a victorious end. W e only wish that God Almighty, who has blessed our arms, may enlighten other nations and make them reconsider things.”
Hitler told the truth when he said he had offered peace to Britain, France, and Poland. You can read about the myriad of these peace proposals in Friedrich Stieve’s book What the World Rejected: Hitler’s Peace Offers 1933-1940. Hitler did not want war. He didn’t back down from a fight, but he also did not court one. As a decorated military veteran of the First World War, he knew its horrors and wanted to avert the destruction of his people whom he loved.
If we are honest, we must include that Germany’s reconquest of its territory in Poland was just. But justification aside, it is crucial to acknowledge that Hitler’s actions on September 1, 1939 did not start WWII. The Danzig dispute only started a small regional conflict between two nations – Germany and Poland. It was on September 3 that Britain and France, ignoring efforts by Italian leader Benito Mussolini and others to initiate a peace conference to settle the issue diplomatically, declared war on Germany. This declaration of war is what turned a regional conflict into a world war.
Furthermore, on September 3, the French military invaded German territory, occupying an 8–kilometer swath of land in the Saar region – and this at a time when Germany had not declared war on France or Britain or even considered war with them a real possibility. It was Britain and France, not Germany, who fired the first shots of the world war. In fact, when the news broke, the New York Times ran the headline: “French Invade Reich.” If you prefer to point to Poland, it was the Poles who first drew German blood, mobilized for war, and broke off diplomatic negotiations. Yet, none of this is mentioned in our censored “history” books. I implore you to ponder the reason why these facts are carefully excluded from “official” texts on the Second World War. And while you’re pondering, read British researcher Nick Kollerstrom’s fantastic little book How Britain Initiated Both World Wars.
On July 19, 1940, after the quick fall of France, and after Winston Churchill had ordered the cruel bombing of Germany’s civilian population, Hitler again petitioned for a cessation of violence. In the Reichstag, he declared:
“All of this – as I said – need not have happened. For peace was all I asked of France and England in October. But the gentlemen war profiteers wanted a continuation of this war at all cost. They have it now.
“I myself am too much a soldier not to comprehend the tragedy of such a development. Still all I hear from London are cries – not the cries of the masses, but of the politicians – that this war must now, all the more, be pursued. I do not know if these politicians have an inkling of just how this war is in fact to be pursued. They declare that they will continue this war, and should England fall, then they will do so from Canada. I do not believe this means that the English people will all emigrate to Canada, but rather that the gentlemen war profiteers will all retreat to Canada by themselves. I fear the people will have to remain behind in England. And, assuredly, they will see the war with different eyes in London than their so-called leaders in Canada.
“Believe me, my Deputies, I feel an inner disgust at this type of unscrupulous parliamentarian annihilators of peoples and states. It is almost painful to me to have been chosen by Providence to give a shove to what these men have brought to the point of falling. It was not my ambition to wage wars, but to build up a new social state of the highest culture. And every year of war takes me away from my work. And the cause of this robbery is those ludicrous zeroes whom one could at best call nature’s political run of the mill, insofar as their corrupted vileness does not brand them as something out of the ordinary.
“Mr. Churchill has repeated the declaration that he wants war. About six weeks ago now, he launched this war in an arena in which he apparently believes he is quite strong: namely, in the air war against the civilian population, albeit beneath the deceptive slogan of a so-called war against military objectives. Ever since Freiburg, these objectives have turned out to be open cities, markets, villages, residential housing, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, and whatever else happens to be hit.
“Up to now I have given little by way of response. This is not intended to signal, however, that this is the only response possible or that it shall remain this way.
“I am fully aware that with our response, which one day will come, will also come the nameless suffering and misfortune of many men. Naturally, this does not apply to Mr. Churchill himself since by then he will surely be secure in Canada, where the money and the children of the most distinguished of war profiteers have already been brought. But there will be great tragedy for millions of other men. And Mr. Churchill should make an exception and place trust in me when as a prophet I now proclaim: A great world empire will be destroyed. A world empire which I never had the ambition to destroy or as much as harm. Alas, I am fully aware that the continuation of this war will end only in the complete shattering of one of the two warring parties. Mr. Churchill may believe this to be Germany. I know it to be England. In this hour I feel compelled, standing before my conscience, to direct yet another appeal to reason in England. I believe I can do this as I am not asking for something as the vanquished, but rather, as the victor, I am speaking in the name of reason. I see no compelling reason which could force the continuation of this war.
“I regret the sacrifices it will demand. I would like to spare my Volk. I know the hearts of millions of men and boys aglow at the thought of finally being allowed to wage battle against an enemy who has, without reasonable cause, declared war on us a second time.”
No honest person can determine that Hitler wanted war or wanted to see his beloved Germany bombed to pieces. Hitler loved the German people – no one can deny that. He loved children and youth. He created youth programs and pass laws to advance a healthy, educated, and wealthy citizenry. Yet, war was foisted upon him just as it had been foisted upon Germany in 1914 by Britain, France, and Russia – and the secret societies that controlled their political and financial institutions.
We now shift our attention to Russia. The Soviet Union’s critical role in the coming of World War II must never be forgotten. When Hitler’s peace overtures began falling flat in 1939, he turned to Moscow for a treaty of non-aggression. He believed that if he shored up the eastern front, Britain and France wouldn’t dare attack Germany from the rear if he was finally forced to attack Poland. Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin knew this plan. He also knew that Britain and France had secretly courted the Soviet Union as well, letting him in on their scheme to attack Germany if Hitler attacked Poland. As a consequence of this secret knowledge, Stalin decided to sign a non-aggression pact with Germany – thus assuring a war between Germany, Britain, and France. Indeed, Stalin gave Germany much of the war materiel he needed for his attack and for his later campaigns in the West.
The Soviets, always the masters of deceit and lords of chaos, crave war. They don’t like to be seen as the aggressor (it clashes with their fake facade of peaceful liberators), but they always work from the shadows to create friction and pit people, groups, and nations against each other. From private speeches by Stalin and internal Comintern documents, we know that the Soviet leaders wanted a war that would bleed the Western powers dry and soften them up for a Soviet invasion. On August 19, 1939, Stalin reasoned with his henchmen thus:
“The question of war or peace has entered a critical phase for us. If we conclude a mutual assistance treaty with France and Great Britain, Germany will back off of Poland and seek a modus vivendi with the Western Powers. War would thus be prevented but future events could take a serious turn for the USSR.
“If we accept Germany’s proposal to conclude with it a non-aggression pact, Germany will then attack Poland and Europe will be thrown into serious acts of unrest and disorder. Under these circumstances we will have many chances of remaining out of the conflict while being able to hope for our own timely entrance into war.
“The experience of the past 20 years shows that in peacetime it is impossible to maintain a Communist movement throughout Europe that would be strong enough so that a Bolshevik party could seize power. A dictatorship by this party becomes possible only as a result of a big war. We are making our choice and it is clear. We must accept the German proposal and politely send the Anglo-French delegations back home. The first advantage we will get will be the destruction of Poland up to the very approaches to Warsaw, including Ukrainian Galicia. . . .
“At the same time we must anticipate what will ensue from the destruction of Germany in war as well as from a German victory. If it is destroyed, the sovietization of Germany follows inevitably and a Communist government will be established. We must not forget that a sovietized Germany would face great danger if such sovietization occurred after the defeat of Germany in a short war. England and France would be powerful enough to seize Berlin and destroy a Soviet Germany. We would not be able to come to the aid of our Bolshevik comrades in Germany.
“Therefore, our task consists in helping Germany wage war for as long as possible with the aim in view that England and France would be in no condition to defeat a sovietized Germany. While hewing to a policy of neutrality and while waiting for its hour to come, the USSR will lend aid to today’s Germany and supply it with raw materials and foodstuff. Of course, it follows that we will not allow such shipments to jeopardize our economy or weaken our armed might.”
A short time later, when the Comintern – the international coordinating wing of the communist conspiracy – heard of the non-aggression pact, they were prepared to mutiny. How could Stalin negotiated with the hated fascists?! The Comintern had considered the German fascists to be a more fearsome opponent than the capitalists.
To allay their concerns, Stalin issued a secret message, telling the Comintern that their goal of world revolution had not changed. He reiterated that a “prolonged war,” the very same postulated by Marx and Lenin, was necessary to the communist world conquest. He made it clear that he signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact in interest of provoking the long-awaited war. He stated that the new Soviet policy was to “assist Germany in a sufficient degree so that she will begin a war and to take measures to insure that this war will drag on” (Anthony Cave Brown and Charles B. MacDonald, On a Field of Red: The Communist International and the Coming of World War II, 508).
It is clear from these various remarks and evidences that the Soviet Union was actively scheming for world war before the fateful events of September 1, 1939. They had always wanted world domination, but by 1939 they had a feasible plan of attack: Play the Great Powers off against each other in a major war and, when both sides were battered and exhausted, roll in from the rear and consume Europe.
Therefore, when Hitler stepped forward to assert his nation’s rights, even if it might mean war with Poland, Stalin was overjoyed to “help.” As noted, Stalin knew of Britain’s and France’s plan to start a major war if Hitler moved on Poland. Thus, Stalin acted with the goal of thrusting Europe into a war that the USSR could take advantage of as part of their world revolution.
Part of Stalin’s pact – and it was his pact inasmuch as it was signed in Moscow by him – was that the Soviet Union would attack Poland’s rear when Germany seized her disputed territory. Stalin cunningly delayed his attack by nearly two-and-a-half weeks, however, by which time the regional war had, on cue, been turned into a world war by Britain and France and the press had riveted their focused on Hitler as the “bad guy.” This episode shows the utter hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy of the “Allies.” They allegedly declared war on and attacked Germany because of Hitler’s retaliation against Poland for Polish atrocities and roguery. However, Britain and France never declared war on the Soviet Union when Stalin invaded and occupied the eastern half of Poland!
During and after the war, the Allies bartered away Poland’s independence to the Soviets. Arthur Lane was America’s ambassador to Poland at the time. Outraged by what he witnessed, he wrote a book I Saw Poland Betrayed in which he railed:
“It is with sorry, dismay and protest that we greet the decision of the Big Three to give all land east of the so-called Curzon Line to Russia in direct contradiction to all sacred pledges of the Atlantic Charter. This tragic revelation is a staggering blow to the cause of freedom.
“The docile submission to Russia’s demand for all the lands, seized during the partitions of Poland as Germany’s collaborator and even Lwow, which, prior to the war, was never at any time under Russian rule even illegally, is a distortion of our war aims. It means re-affirmation of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Line of 1939 which gave one half of Poland and all of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia to Russia.
“When the Germans were at the gates of Moscow and Stalin was making frantic pleas for help, Stalin renounced his claims to all the territories he had seized as Germany’s partner. As soon as Russia, thanks to American lend-lease aid, began pushing the Germans back, Stalin re-affirmed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Boundary Line and abruptly broke off relations with the London Polish government which he had always recognized as the only legitimate government of Poland.
“It is also shocking to learn that the members of the Stalin handpicked Lublin government, composed of professional communists, who are working for the incorporation of Poland into the Soviet Union, are to continue in power in a newly-reorganized government in violation of the constitution of Poland. The imposition of a government “without the freely expressed wishes of the people concerned” would mean the end of freedom and the beginning of serfdom for the people of Poland.
“As for the Poles not subservient to the Kremlin, they had no hesitation in terming the Yalta decision the betrayal of Poland. To them it was the negation of their hopes for independence and for restoration of the territory which their enemies had confiscated in 1939” (Arthur Bliss Lane, I Saw Poland Betrayed: An American Ambassador Reports to the American People, 85-86).
So much for “liberation” as a motive for Allied involvement. Poland was, as Hitler correctly said, a pawn in the international conspirators’ game.
From the very day that Stalin agreed to conclude a non-aggression pact with Germany, he began preparing for war. While Hitler was busy defending himself against France and England in the West, Stalin initiated a secretive two-year plan that would culminate in a Soviet attack on Germany’s rear in 1941. American-made Soviet factories began cranking out tanks and equipment by the tens of thousands. These troops were secretly brought into Soviet-occupied Poland and arranged in attack formation. And surrounding buffer territories in the Baltics, Scandinavia, and Eastern Europe were invaded and militarized by the Red Army. The groundwork was laid for a full-scale invasion of Europe.
Let’s not brush over Stalin’s two-year war plan too quickly, however. It’s an extremely important piece of history. The godfather of the idea that Stalin was preparing to attack Hitler, and Hitler preempted him with Operation Barbarossa, is the ex-Soviet intelligence officer Viktor Suvorov. Surovov’s most famous books, which I cannot recommend too highly, are Icebreaker and Chief Culprit: Stalin’s Grand Design to Start World War II. In a review of Suvorov’s work, Daniel Michaels made these summations:
“[Marshal] Shaposhnikov’s mobilization plan, faithfully implemented by Stalin, laid out a clear, logical, two-year program (August 1939-summer 1941) that would inexorably and purposefully culminate in war. According to Suvorov, Stalin announced his decision to implement this plan at a Politburo meeting on August 19, 1939, four days before the signing of the Soviet-German non-aggression pact. (It was also at this Politburo meeting, which came shortly after Stalin had concluded his draconian purges of military and political “unreliables,” that the Soviet leader ordered General Georgi Zhukov to attack, and defeat, in classic blitzkrieg fashion, the Japanese Sixth Army at Khalkhin-Gol, Mongolia.)
“Thirteen days after Stalin’s speech, German troops struck against Poland, and two days after that — September 3, 1939 — Britain and France declared war on Germany.
“Once Stalin decided to embark on this process of mobilization, the regime radically retooled the nation’s economy, directing the enormous physical and human resources of the Soviet Union for war. By its nature, this all-encompassing process could be pursued only to its logical conclusion — war. Simply stated, Stalin’s 1939 decision to mobilize inevitably meant war. . . .
“Suvorov presents overwhelming evidence to show that Stalin was preparing for a massive surprise attack against Germany, to be launched in the summer of 1941. (Suvorov believes the attack was set for July 6, 1941.) In preparation for this, the Soviets had deployed enormous forces right on the German frontier, including paratroops, together with airfields and large caches of weapons, ammunition, fuel and other supplies.
“In April 1941 the Red Army ordered a massive deployment of artillery pieces and ammunition production to the frontier, and their storage there on the ground and in the open. This alone, writes Suvorov, proves Stalin’s intention to attack, because this weaponry and ammunition had to be used before the fall, when the annual rains would begin. Storing munitions in the open in 1941 meant that an attack had to come that same year. “Any other interpretation of this fact is not conceivable,” he writes.
“Suvorov sums up:
““By studying the archive records and the publicly available publications, I came to the conclusion that the transport [in 1941] to the frontier of millions of boots, munitions, and spare parts, and the deployment of millions of soldiers, and thousands of tanks and airplanes, could not have been a mistake, or a miscalculation, but rather that it must have been the result of a thoughtful policy . . .
““This process had as its goal the preparation of industry, the transport system, agriculture, the state territory, the Soviet population, and the Red Army to carry out the war of “liberation” in central and western Europe.
““In short, this process is called mobilization. It was a secret mobilization. The Soviet leadership prepared the Red Army and the entire country for the conquest of Germany and western Europe. The conquest of western Europe was the main reason that the Soviet Union unleashed the Second World War.
““The final decision to start the war was taken by Stalin on August 19, 1939.” . . .
“Historians, notes Suvorov, do not adequately explain why Hitler decided to attack the Soviet Union at a time when Britain was still not subdued, thus engaging Germany in a dangerous two-front war. They often simply refer to Hitler’s lust for Lebensraum or “living space.” Actually, the Russian author writes, “Stalin gave Hitler no alternative way out. The secret [Soviet] mobilization was of such an enormous dimension that it would have been difficult to ignore.” Stalin’s “secret mobilization had reached such an extent that it could no longer be disguised. For Hitler the only possibility left was a preventive strike. Hitler beat Stalin to it by two weeks.” In short, given the situation, the only responsible recourse for the German leadership was to launch a preemptive strike.”
Ladies and gentlemen, let’s not fool ourselves any longer – the communists were responsible for World War II! It is plain that the Soviet desire was brutal, global, prolonged revolutionary war. The USSR was not an innocent bystander that Hitler ruthlessly attacked for “living space” or out of some genocidal aspirations. Hitler had no such aspirations, all the atrocity propaganda against him notwithstanding. Rather, it was Stalin, the world’s second greatest mass-murderer with at least 60 million notches on his belt, who prepared to attack and conquer Germany and all of Europe. It was the Soviet regime that plotted the enslavement of Europe and the world.
Author Joachim Hoffmann explained the Soviet’s global conquest ambitions this way:
“The imperialistic power politics inherent in the Soviet political system from the very beginning . . . found striking external expression in the governmental coat of arms (gosudararstvennyj gerb) of the USSR, which was still current in 1991. The symbolism of this state coat of arms consists of a hammer and sickle menacingly and crudely encircling the whole world, surrounded by the following inflammatory words in several languages: “Proletarians of all Countries, Unite!” What is so poignantly made evident here is the goal, openly proclaimed by both Lenin and Stalin, of world domination by Soviet Communist power, or, as they called it, the “victory of Socialism all over the world.” It was none other than Lenin who, on December 6, 1920, stated in a speech that what was involved was to exploit the conflicts and contradictions between the capitalist states. To “incite” the capitalist states “against each other,” and “of using the knives of scoundrels, like the capitalist thieves, against each other,” on the grounds that “when two thieves fall out and fight, the honest man laughs last. As soon as we are strong enough to overthrow capitalism completely, we will immediately grab them by the throat.” “Victory of the Communist revolution in all countries is inevitable” he declared on March 6, 1920. “Victory will be ensured in the not-too distant future.”
“Stalin was early devoted to this principle of Bolshevism, which was proven by his well-known speech before the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party (b) in July 1925. At that time, Stalin declared: “Should the war begin, we will not stand by inactively; we will enter the war, but we will enter as the last belligerent. We shall throw a weight on the scales that should be decisive.” This “Stalin Doctrine,” as Alexandr Nekrich has shown with admirable clarity, and regardless of statements to the contrary, was never abandoned. It retained its force, and the effort to “incite fascist Germany and the West against each other,” as stated by author Viacheslav I. Dashichev, became a genuine idée fixe with Stalin. In 1939, when the Red Army found itself increasing in strength due to a rapidly growing gigantic armaments program, Stalin believed that the time had come to intervene as a belligerent in the crisis of “world capitalism”” (Joachim Hoffmann, Stalin’s War of Extermination 1941-1945, 26-27).
No honest student of communism can conclude it’s a peaceful ideology. And no student of history can conclude that the Soviet Union was a peace-loving entity. Rather, from its inception, communism has suckled on blood. The Soviet Union was a warmongering, conquering empire that openly conquered state after hapless state. The states comprising the USSR had all been violently captured. And this record of barbarity doesn’t include the dozens of other nations – such as the United States, Japan, South Africa, Cuba, and Israel – that have suffered terror bombings and subversion at the hands of communist operatives.
As Stalin’s war preparations became increasingly obvious, Hitler secretly developed a plan to preempt the Soviet invasion and eliminate the communist cancer from Europe once and for all. Recall that in 1936 Germany and Japan signed the Anti-Comintern Pact, pledging to work together to defeat the scourge of international communism. Italy later signed onto the pact. Curious, is it not, that the three nations so demonized are the three which openly attempted to thwart communist machinations? The Anti-Comintern Pact stated:
“In cognizance of the fact that the object of the Communistic International (the so-called Komintern) is the disintegration of, and the commission of violence against, existing States by the exercise of all means at its command,
“Believing that the toleration of interference by the Communistic International in the internal affairs of nations not only endangers their internal peace and social welfare, but threatens the general peace of the world,
“Desiring to co-operate for defense against communistic disintegration, have agreed as follows. . .”
Despite his non-aggression pact of necessity with Stalin in 1939 – which itself shows how far Hitler was willing to go for peace – Hitler hated communism, as any sane person does. In fact, it’s admitted by historians that Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) was elected to power on an anti-communist platform. Hitler correctly deemed Bolshevism the “red plague” and said it was a “Satanic” plot. Thus, when he saw Stalin preparing to violate the non-aggression pact and attack Germany, and, by extension, the whole of Western Europe, he decided to act.
To paraphrase a statement Hitler once made, when you see a person raising his rifle to his shoulder, you don’t wait for him to shoot you before you act; you strike first. Hitler believed the Napoleonic military doctrine that “he who hits first hits twice.” Accordingly, German troops were covertly transferred to the Eastern border with Soviet Russia in Poland and arrayed for battle. On June 22, 1941, Hitler launched the largest invasion in world history – Operation Barbarossa. As we have seen, Viktor Suvorov estimates that Hitler beat Stalin to the punch by about two weeks.
As with Poland, France, and Britain, so with Russia – Hitler did not desire war. Yet, Soviet policy had made war inevitable. Knowing his inferiority in numbers, Hitler decided to strike first and foil Stalin’s plans. The morning of the invasion, Hitler addressed his nation and informed them of the attack. He explained:
“When on Sept. 3, 1939, the German Reich received the English declaration of war there was repeated anew a British attempt to render impossible every beginning of a consolidation and thereby of Europe’s rise, by fighting whatever power on the Continent was strongest at any given time. . . .
“Never did the German people harbor hostile feeling against the peoples of Russia. However, for over ten years Jewish Bolshevist rulers had been endeavoring from Moscow to set not only Germany but all Europe aflame. At no time ever did Germany attempt to carry her National Socialist Weltanschauung into Russia, but on the contrary Jewish Bolshevist rulers in Moscow unswervingly endeavored to foist their domination upon us and other European peoples, not only by ideological means but above all with military force.
“The consequences of the activity of this regime were nothing but chaos, misery and starvation in all countries. I, on the other hand, have been striving for twenty years with a minimum of intervention and without destroying our production, to arrive at a new Socialist order in Germany which not only eliminates unemployment but also permits the worker to receive an ever greater share of the fruits of his labor.
“The success of this policy of economic and social reconstruction of our people, which by systematically eliminating differences of rank and class, has a true peoples’ community as the final aim of the world.
“It was therefore only with extreme difficulty that I brought myself in August, 1939, to send my Foreign Minister to Moscow in an endeavor there to oppose the British encirclement policy against Germany. . . .
“Victory in Poland which was won by German troops exclusively caused me to address yet another peace offer to the Western Powers. It was refused owing to efforts of international and Jewish warmongers. . . .
“. . . there resulted British-Soviet Russian cooperation intended mainly at the tying up of such powerful forces in the east that radical conclusion of the war in the west, particularly as regards aircraft, could no longer be vouched for by the German High Command.
“This, however, was in line with the objects not only of the British but also of the Soviet Russian policy, for both England and Soviet Russia intend to let this war go on for as long as possible in order to weaken all Europe and render it progressively more impotent. . . .
“Today something like 160 Russian divisions are standing at our frontiers. For weeks constant violations of this frontier have taken place, not only affecting us but from the far north down to Rumania.
“Russian airmen consider it sport nonchalantly to overlook these frontiers, presumably to prove to us that they already feel themselves masters of these territories.
“During the night of June 17 to June 18 Russian patrols again penetrated into the Reich’s territory and could only be driven back after prolonged firing. This has brought us to the hour when it is necessary for us to take steps against this plot devised by the Jewish Anglo-Saxon warmongers and equally the Jewish rulers of the Bolshevist center in Moscow.
“German people! At this moment a march is taking place that, as regards extent, compares with the greatest the world hitherto has seen. United with their Finnish comrades, the fighters of the victory of Narvik are standing in the Northern Arctic. German divisions commanded by the conqueror of Norway, in cooperation with the heroes of Finnish freedom, under their marshal, are protecting Finnish soil.
“Formations of the German Eastern Front extend from East Prussia to the Carpathians. German and Rumanian soldiers are united under Chief of State Antonescu from the banks of the Pruth along the lower reaches of the Danube to the shores of the Black Sea. The task of this front, therefore, no longer is the protection of single countries, but the safeguarding of Europe and thereby the salvation of all. . . .
“May God help us especially in this fight!”
Let me quickly add that lest anyone think Hitler was being anti-Semitic in his statements, he was merely citing the fact that most communists at the time were Jews and that most Western governments were influenced by radical Jews and Zionists. This is true. Truth is not anti-Semitic. Facts are not hateful. Statistics have no prejudice. Accept it or deny it; it doesn’t change the reality. And the source of information also has no bearing on its validity.
As Hitler noted, a gigantic number of Soviet Red Army divisions had amassed along Germany’s border. This included some two million paratroopers – the largest number of airborne soldiers ever assembled. Do you use airborne divisions in defense? No. You use them in offensive warfare. Soviet formations were set up in such a manner that attack could have been their only possible use.
When the Germans smashed through the Soviet lines, they easily outflanked, surrounded, captured, or killed massive quantities of men and materiel because they had set up no meaningful defenses. After all, their purpose was invasion, not defense. German soldiers recounted driving day after day past lines of tanks and supplies that had been brought forward in preparation for the Soviet invasion of Europe. Hitler himself was shocked at the unprecedented scale of Soviet buildup. In a private conversation with Finnish General Mannerheim in mid 1942, Hitler revealed that the German military had already destroyed a staggering 34,000 Soviet tanks! He said:
“They have the most extensive armament that could ever be conceive by man. So, had someone told me that a state can send 35,000 tanks to the battle, then I would have said: “You are out of your mind” . . . If one of my generals had told me that here a state could possess 35,000 tanks, then I would have said: “You, my dear sir, you are seeing double, or ten-fold. It is madness, you are seeing apparitions.” We had not thought it possible. I have already told you that we have discovered factories, the one in Kramatorskaja for instance was just two years ago only a farming village – we had no idea. Today, the site has a tank factory, which was to employ 30,000 workers in its first phase and when fully completed, 60,000 workers. One single tank factory! . . . One gigantic factory!”
Mannerheim responded that the Soviets had had twenty years to produce this massive force and that all their funds had been spent on their armaments. Hitler again said that he previously had no idea the Soviet buildup was so huge. But, he said, even if he had known, “the decision [to attack] I surely would have taken, because there was really no other possibility.” He felt his hand was force because, as he said later in the conversation, the Soviet demands “quite evidently meant for ultimately dominating Europe.”
The invasion caught Stalin completely off-guard. Yes, he had intelligence about a German buildup. He was warned about a possible attack. But he was preparing to attack first and thought nothing of it. So, when his two-year war preparations had been upended, he reeled in disbelief. He urgently courted American aid. FDR, a kindred spirit, immediately and illegally launched the Lend-Lease program. Lend-Lease was nothing but a life-saver to Soviet Russia. Lend-Lease, and only Lend-Lease, prevented a Soviet defeat. In Russia, I personally talked to a Red Army tanker who had fought in WWII. He gave it as his opinion that without the American tanks and supplies – many billions of dollars worth – the Russian effort would have collapsed. I concur.
It’s one of the great tragedies of history that the United States backed the Soviet Union against Germany in World War II. It’s also a tragedy that Hitler lost his fight against the Moscow-based Marxist conspirators. If Germany had won – and she would have if America had not intervened on behalf of the Soviets – neither China nor North Korea would have turned communist. There would have been no Korean War, no Vietnam War, no Cold War. Cuba would never have gone Red. Latin America would not have devolved into chaos. The Palestinian Liberation Organization – a Soviet creation – would never have risen. South Africa would not have been plunged into white genocide by the black communists led by the convicted Marxist terrorist Nelson Mandela. International terrorism – another Soviet creation – would never have plagued mankind. America would not have succumbed to Soviet subversion of our education system, Hollywood, economy, etc. And we would not currently be looking down the barrel of a third world war with Russia, China, and their warlike allies. The blood of many millions stains FDR’s hands – and the hands of those who advocated for American involvement in the Second World War.
This history of war and bloodshed is part of the fruit of World War II. The communists throughout the world – in Moscow, Beijing, London, New York, Washington, D.C., Paris, Tel Aviv, and elsewhere – have benefited from this bedlam. Said another way, the communist conspiracy was the beneficiary of World War II. Soviet Russia was and conspiracy’s primary base of operations. What did the Russians gain from the war? I turn again to Viktor Suvorov who observed:
“The Soviet Union entered World War II as an aggressor. Poland, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Romania – all the western neighbors of the Soviet Union – fell victim to the Red Army. During talks in Berlin, Stalin’s envoy Molotov demanded strongholds in Yugoslavia, in the Adriatic Sea, in Greece, in the Bosporus and Dardanelles, in the Persian Gulf; he demanded that countries south of the Baku-Batumi line, in the direction of the Persian Gulf, be given over to Soviet control, including eastern Turkey, northern Iran, and Iraq. He also declared the Soviet Union’s interest in southern Bukovina. Molotov constantly asked Hitler and Ribbentrop whether Germany had reconsidered its position on the fate of Finland, seeing that the Soviet Union was not going to let that country be independent. Finally, Stalin’s major demand at the Berlin talks in November 1940 was for Germany to acquiesce to a Soviet military presence in Bulgaria. Molotov added, in a conversation with Hitler, that “the USSR was ready to support Bulgaria in its desire for an outlet to the Aegean Sea, and considered said desire to be just.” Stalin never specified which countries his puppet Bulgaria would have to invade to reach this outlet – Greece, Turkey, or both. . . .
“The Soviet Union finished World War II as an aggressor as well. It was the only country that expanded its borders as a result of World War II. Stalin annexed Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, northern Bukovina, western Ukraine, and western Byelorussia, as well as parts of eastern Prussia with Koenigsberg, Trans-Carpathian Ukraine, the Kuril Islands, South Sakhalin, and Bessarabia. Under the banner of the “great patriotic war,” Stalin punished entire peoples and nations. On Stalin’s orders, all the Chechens, Ingushes, Crimean Tatars, Volga Germans, and other peoples were transported to empty frozen fields or waterless, lifeless steppes, and abandoned there to die. . . .
“The Red Army came to Central Europe with the supposedly noble goal of liberating it from the Nazis, but it left only after establishing puppet governments in most of those countries. Poland, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Romania, Yugoslavia, part of Austria, and Albania were forced under Stalin’s control, as well as China, North Korea, and Vietnam in Asia. On July 22, 1945, the Soviet delegation suggested that the Soviet Union, the United States, and Great Britain separately or jointly oversee the former Italian colonies in Africa and the Mediterranean. On July 23, Stalin demanded the right to create Soviet military naval bases in the Black Sea region, in the straits of Bosporus and Dardanelles. He also wanted parts of Turkey – the Kars and Ardagan regions – to belong to the Soviet Union. Stalin tried to take control of West Berlin by strangling it through blockade. Soviet agents appeared in France, Italy, and Greece . . . Stalin declared northern Iran to be a part of Azerbaijan, and right until the end of his life never gave up trying to take control of this province. Stalin set up the People’s Democratic Republic of Southern Azerbaijan, and the Kurdish People’s Democratic Republic, respectively in northern and western Iran” (Suvorov, Chief Culprit, 278-279).
Something Suvorov said is crucial: Soviet Russia was “the only country that expanded its borders as a result of World War II.” The United States did not expand its borders because of World War II, though we saddly expanded our military footprint. Britain lost its empire. France was diminished. Germany was carved up and divvied out to other nations. Poland was wholly occupied by the Soviets, along with all of Eastern Europe and the Baltics. China succumbed to Marxist machinations. Japan lost many of its territories. Italy was weakened. And so forth.
Not one country was “liberated” by the Allies. Not one. Not Japan. Not Germany. Not Italy. Not Poland. Not France. In every case, the Allies demolished these states – bombing them to rubble. They firebombed hundreds of thousands of women and children for no reason in Germany and Japan. They inflicted more casualties on the French during the “liberation” than Germany did in their so-called “invasion.” What the Allies brought with them was death and destruction, enslavement and embarrassment. Marxist regimes were set up all over the world. Mass purges happened. Millions died as a result of Allied actions.
After the war, millions of Germans were murdered by the Allies. Yes, you read that correctly – after the war millions of Germans were murdered by the Allies. Did your history teacher teach you that? They were starved to death in Eisenhower’s death camps, butchered by Jews in Eastern Europe, raped and massacred by Russian hordes, and worked to death in the Siberian GULAG. Considering this, was Germany “liberated”? Are the German people better off now than under Hitler? No! All of Europe is worse off than before the Allies waged war against Germany and plunged the world into communist chaos.
How is it possible for anyone to look at this record of imperialist expansion and not conclude that the Soviets and their Western fellow travelers were the primary beneficiaries of the war? World War Two was a coup for Russia. It was a godsend for the communist conspiracy! It was a boon for the international financiers. When you ask the age-old question “cui bono?” – who benefited? – there’s only one proper response: International communism.
The only other group that really gained anything from the war was the Jews who, because of Adolf Hitler’s generous help between 1933-1939 (see the Haavara Agreement, or Transfer Agreement), gained and built up Palestine. German help was so essential in setting up the Israeli state that, during the war, the Zionist militia known as Lehi offered to fight with the Germans against the British who they saw as impeding their settlement in Palestine. The Zionist desire for Palestine, and the role it played in Jewish haranguing for war, should not be discounted. It played a perceptible role in both world wars. However, even Israel – which is not God’s state but a corrupt, terrorist regime – is compromised by the international conspiracy. The Russian mafia (i.e. Soviet intelligence repackaged) dominates Israel and runs it like it’s own “mini-state” (Robert Friedman, Red Mafiya: How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America, 276-282). And many of the Israeli elite are die-hard Marxists who emigrated to Israel from the Soviet Union.
Again, cui bono? The communist world revolution benefited, just as Stalin planned. The murderers in the Kremlin benefited. The collaborators on Wall Street benefited. The Fabians in D.C. and London benefited. The Jewish Marxists benefited. In short, the international clique of gangsters who hold the world by the hair of its head benefited. Humanity were the big losers. And we will continue to lose until we realize that nearly everything we’ve been taught about World War II is a lie – a direct inversion of reality.
Today, the deep wounds of the Second World War are still felt. They’ve never healed. They were never intended to heal because the work of world revolution is not yet finished. The internationalists need a world drenched in hatred, division, and war in order to accomplish their transformation of society into a global Marxist cult.
Russia and China stand today in a dominant position politically and militarily precisely because of the gains made by communists in WWII. The Chinese dragon’s aggression has stirred up fear in Asia while the Russian bear’s violence and threats have created uncertainty in Europe. An article published one day ago in The Conversation made this excellent remark:
“For years now, historical arguments have been raging throughout Europe, with the fault lines often running between Russia and other eastern European countries such as Poland and the Baltic states, or the Czech Republic. They centre on whether or not the Soviet Union should be seen in these countries as a liberator from Nazism, or as the oppressive bringer of communism. . . .
“As long as eastern Europe feels threatened by Russia, there will be no agreement on what “liberation” in 1945 meant.”
There was no “liberation.” The world has been in chains for decades. Russia and China are the task masters. They are supported financially and technologically by their cohorts and dupes in the West. Through this pincer strategy, the communists have herded mankind together and are moving in like wolves for the kill. Fortunately, the American People own millions of guns and have not yet totally forsaken the Constitution. This is the only thing holding back the full tsunami of Red tyranny. The moment Americans give up their means of self-defense and allow the Constitution to fall by the wayside is the moment the global Marxists will strike.
Dear reader, please understand that history is vastly different than it appears. World War II was not planned by Germany, perpetrated by Germany, or won by Germany. It was planned, perpetrated, and won by the communists and their collaborators in Britain, France, Poland, and the United States. Victory Day, therefore, does not commemorate victory for humanity, but victory for the communist jackals. It is Victory Day for the Bolshevik butchers who snuffed out tens of millions of lives during the war for the sake of world domination. It is celebration of the Elite’s conquest of a large portion of the globe. It’s a damnable holiday.
The communists are our mortal enemies. They, and they alone, seek the total subjugation of the world. They, and they alone, unleashed the hell of war on Europe and Asia. They, and they alone, bear responsibility for the devastation, polarization, and misery that have resulted from that vicious war. They are the enemies of mankind.
Society cannot survive while the communists exist. They’re parasites draining the blood from the body of mankind. They’re hyenas who seek to rip us apart. There can be no peaceful coexistence with people who want to kill you. Speaking of communists, Ezra Taft Benson said:
“We must put off our rose-colored glasses, quit repeating these soothing but entirely false statements about world unity and brotherhood, and look at the world as it is, not as we would like it to become. Such an objective, and perhaps painful, survey leads to but one conclusion. We would be committing national suicide to surrender any of our independence, and chain ourselves to other nations in such a sick and turbulent world. . . .
“The world is smaller, you say? True, it is, but if one finds himself locked in a house with maniacs, thieves and murderers – even a small house – he does not increase his chances of survival by entering into alliances with his potential attackers and becoming dependent upon them for protection to the point where he is unable to defend himself. Perhaps the analogy between nations and maniacs is a little strong for some to accept. But if we put aside our squeamishness over strong language, and look hard at the real world in which we live, the analogy is quite sound in all but the rarest exceptions” (Ezra Taft Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, 154-155).
Compromise with communists? Never! You can’t compromise with maniacs, thieves, and murderers. Hitler understood the dilemma and how to act. The Germans of the 30s and 40s understood what must be done in the face of an existential threat.
We need to finally learn that it was German blood that prevented all of Europe from being consumed by the Red Beast in 1941. Mankind owes Germany a massive debt of gratitude and an enormous apology for the way we have demeaned and hated them for all these years. This Victory Day we should admit our nation’s guilt in aiding the communist conspiracy and resolve to pick up where Hitler left off. Yes, we should mobilize and annihilate the supreme destroyers of civilization – the international communists.
I end the way I started, by citing Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels affirmed: “It is a mistake to believe that people cannot take the truth. They can.” What I’ve presented today most likely conflicts with what you’ve been taught about World War II. What I’ve presented is perhaps difficult to swallow. But it’s the truth, so help me God. So, I ask you, can you take it?
