Leon Degrelle was a Walloon Belgian politician, who joined the Waffen SS, which were the front-line troops in the fight against the Soviet Union and Communism. Most Waffen-SS were volunteer units who would rather fight instead of being handed over to their vengeful countrymen. The lies are what have kept the world from learning real history. Knowledge is power. Spread the Truth!
Today is a day of mourning and remembrance that you might not be aware of. April 24th marks Yom Hashoah - a Jewish day of remembrance for the Holocaust - and it is also the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day. In the 1910’s, almost 1.5 million Armenians (about 98% of them Christian) were rounded up and slaughtered by the hands of the Ottoman Empire in the name of Islam and for absolute control. Then, in the 1930’s-1940’s, the Nazi party (helmed by the infamous Adolf Hitler) in an attempt to exercise complete control over Germany and Europe through “National Socialism,” captured and imprisoned and murdered upwards of six million Jews.
Seven and a half million people, systematically killed at the hands of an oppressive government in the name of power, within the past 100 years.
Let us remember them all and never forget that evil truly does exist in the world, and that “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” - Edmund Burke.
In the years leading up to WWII, Adolf Hitler spent the
majority of his time painting. He produced hundreds of paintings and even attempted
to make a living out of his art. In his youth, Hitler had aspired to become a
professional artist. However, he was rejected twice by the Academy of Fine Arts
Vienna. The institute were displeased by how Hitler had much preferred painting
architecture to people.
Shortly before the outbreak of WWII, Hitler told British ambassador
Nevile Henderson: “I am an artist and not a politician. Once the Polish
question is settled, I want to end my life as an artist.” Even while
serving in WWI, Hitler continued to paint during his downtime. One can’t help
but question whether Hitler had succeeded in his childhood dreams, then maybe
he could have gone down a different and positive path.
