Adolf Hitler: "Who still talks nowadays of the extermination of Armenians?"

"We must not forget Armenia’s suffering" (Catholic Herald, February 4, 2015):
Armenia has arguably produced more martyrs than anywhere else, given that the victims of the genocide were killed in hatred of the Faith....

... the fateful day: April 24 1915. It was on this day that the Ottoman government began to arrest and deport Armenians who had been living in Anatolia from time immemorial. This organised campaign of arrest, deportation, massacre and extermination led to the deaths of between one million and one and a half million Armenians....

Adolf Hitler’s view of the Armenian genocide is worth recalling, and his reference to it, made in August 1939, worth quoting:
Our strength is our quickness and our brutality. Genghis Khan had millions of women and children hunted down and killed, deliberately and with a gay heart. History sees in him only the great founder of States. What the weak Western European civilization alleges about me does not matter. I have given the order – and will have everyone shot who utters but one word of criticism – that the aim of this war does not consist in reaching certain designated [geographical] lines, but in the enemies’ physical elimination. Thus, for the time being only in the east, I put ready my Death’s Head units, with the order to kill without pity or mercy all men, women, and children of the Polish race or language. Only thus will we gain the living space that we need. Who still talks nowadays of the extermination of the Armenians?
Who indeed? That is why we need to talk about Armenia and remember them this April. Put the date of that hundredth anniversary in your diary now. (emphasis added)
Remember, too, that St Blaise is the only Armenian saint in the Universal Calendar, the solitary representative of his culture. But what a culture! His nation is the oldest Christian nation, converted to Christ by St Gregory the Illuminator in 301, before Constantine, and the nation with arguably more martyrs than any other.

Of course, there was the German extermination program of the putative likable Ike

not to mention the then POTUS siccing the victorious Generals of the Union on the injuns so as to exterminate them but, we Americans are nothing if not sly for we choose to name our Helicopters in honor of the tribes we tried to exterminate.

Look, says the government, we loved the injuns so much we not only tried to ice the lot of them, we stole the names of their nations to baptise our weapons to use against the new indians.

O, about the new indians remark?

That is what our military calls our enemies; thus, the acceptable black GOP candidate, Colin Powell, defended the indefensible actions of his military in Vietnam by saying they (his men) were trapped in indian country.

Meet the new injun who must be kilt just as dead as the old injun.

The victors write the history books and those books ain't a confession.

I'm not sure what this has to do with your strange world view, but that quote is absolutely correct.

The important thing is what Hitler meant, which is too quickly forgotten by amnesia-prone Americans. He meant that nobody is going to give a rat's derriere in a few years what we did in the Holocaust, anymore than they do about the Armenian genocide. It's like his well-known statement that the bigger the lie, the more the masses are apt to believe it.

All of which gives one pause about what Obama has been doing to the American electorate over the past six years: he is dismantling their republic and gutting their institutions right under their noses, and they don't even notice. But that's another story.
