“While staging their commando attacks upon East Germany, American authorities and their German agents were apparently convinced that the Soviet Union had belligerent designs upon West Germany; perhaps a textbook case of projection. On 8 October 1952, the Minister- President of the West German state of Hesse, Georg August Zinn, disclosed that the United States had created a secret civilian army in his state for the purpose of resisting a Russian invasion.
This force of between 1,000 and 2,000 men belonged to the so-called “Technical Service” of the German Youth Federation, the latter characterized by the New York Times as “a Right-wing youth group frequently charged with extremist activities” (a reference to the terrorist tactics described above). The stalwarts of the Technical Service were hardly youths, however, for almost all appeared to be between 35 and 50 and most, said Zinn, were “former officers of the Luftwaffe, the Wehrmacht and the S.S. [Hitler’s Black-shirts]”.
For more than a year they had received American training in infantry weapons and explosives and “political instruction” in small groups at a secluded site in the countryside and at a US military installation.”

The U.S. government has been aiding former Nazis in their political aspirations since the 50s……America Was Never Great
Forever wondering how many of the people saying “we should punch Nazis” actually talk about modern antisemitism or antiromanyism, ever. Cause it sort of feels like you only care about Jews and Roma when we’re dead
I liked this blog better when it wasn’t spammed with anti-trump rhetoric.
Fuck everyone who voted for him.
Fuck everyone who still supports him.
Fuck everyone who sees literal Nazi rallies and propaganda, and yet turns a blind eye in any way shape or form.
I hope the door hits you on the way out.
I’m not fucking kidding about ableism today - or any other day, for that matter.
If your response to Nazis marching in Charlottesville is to say ugly, bigoted things about disabled people, then you are just as bad as those white supremacists. You also need a fucking history lesson about how the Nazis treated disabled people because you are more alike than you think.
The Nazis, Klansmen, and assorted white supremacist fuckwits in Charlottesville are not “mentally unstable”
They are not “mentally ill”
They are entitled.
They are not suffering from a diminished responsibility for their actions - their actions are made with intent and a clear mind.
They are not heedless of the consequences of their actions. They are acting the way they are because they think - correctly - that there will be no consequences.
They are not confused or disorganized in their thinking. They know exactly what they are doing and who they are hurting.
