"To the U.S.A. Commander of the encircled town of Bastogne.
The fortune of war is changing. This time the U.S.A. forces in and near Bastogne have been encircled by strong German armored units. More German armored units have crossed the river Our near Ortheuville, have taken Marche and reached St. Hubert by passing through Hompre-Sibret-Tillet. Libramont is in German hands.
There is only one possibility to save the encircled U.S.A. troops from total annihilation: that is the honorable surrender of the encircled town. In order to think it over a term of two hours will be granted beginning with the presentation of this note.
If this proposal should be rejected one German Artillery Corps and six heavy A. A. Battalions are ready to annihilate the U.S.A. troops in and near Bastogne. The order for firing will be given immediately after this two hours term.
All the serious civilian losses caused by this artillery fire would not correspond with the well-known American humanity.
The German Commander."
To the German Commander.
The American Commander?
Maybe Trump is the first American President to have an openly Nazi ‘Senior Advisor”, Steve Bannon. But he’s certainly not the first Nazi leaning American President. Nazis and Republicans have intertwined since the beginnings of the Nazi Party, before Hitler became Germany's leader.
Just when American Jews thought they were out, to paraphrase Al Pacino, Jewish history is pulling them back in.
“This site is dedicated to those fallen heroes, who arouse from among their countrymen to battle right wing tyranny and its triad of support hate, racism and poverty. They came from all walks of life: farmers, labors, ministers and students, all had so much to give, all were idealists, and all were killed for menacing the tyrants grasp on power. For this society will be forever indebted and grateful to them. The very freedoms that we enjoy today, only came about through their efforts.
Today as a nation we face the greatest threats to democracy and freedom than at anytime in the past, the enemy is not from abroad but the enemy is from within. They are the extremist and odious members of what passes for conservatives in today's politics. They have attacked the very foundations of our government and the institutions that have made it great. We have yielded far too much ground in the 1980's our future freedoms depend upon stopping them now, we must fight now.
I wrote those first two paragraphs when the White Rose first appeared on the internet over seven years ago. Today our cherished freedoms have been severely restricted and curtailed by the illegitimate regime of George Bush. As a nation we now stand on the brink of full-blown fascism. The Fourth Reich is rising like a giant Phoenix from the ashes of 9-11. Reports of terrible atrocities and war crimes committed by our armies in Afghanistan and Iraq have already surfaced. Who will survive to bare witness if the Bush regime is not removed by the upcoming election?”
