Veterans Day, 2017 – Who Died?

First posted for Memorial Day, who died is just as relevant on
Veteran’s day.

We best honor the sacrifice of those who died by providing for
the men and women who  fought with them and survived.

‘Who Died’ is a five minute memorial to the young men who died
in the 1944 Invasion of France.

It speaks to the sacrifice of all young men and woman who give
their lives to preserve and protect American democracy.

Written, introduced, and narrated by novelist Betty Smith, author of
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn,” the film answers the question “Who died?”

Betty Smith: “I’ve just been told that over 3,000 of our American boys
died in the first eleven days of the invasion of France.

Who died? I’ll tell you who died.

Not so many years ago, there was a little boy sleeping in his crib. In the night, it thundered and lightninged. He woke and cried out in fear.

His mother came and fixed his blankets and said, ‘Don’t cry. Nothing will
ever hurt you.

He died.”

From the Technique newspaper

This will not be a fun post, I have postponed writing this for weeks but I can not postpone it anymore. Times are too dangerous right now. I once made a promise, I repeated that promise several times. It is time to own up and speak out because NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!

I have been following developments worldwide and in the USA for the past months and can come to only one conclusion. The world has gone mad, the USA is in good fashion leading this by example and somehow my generation and the directly preceding generations have forgotten about 4o/45.  Let me give a little reminder. Images might not be suitable for all audiances

Lethal Neglect: The Warsaw Ghetto

Warning: graphic footage.

The Warsaw Ghetto was a Nazi experiment in the use of Lethal Neglect as a
means of execution.

Most of the footage was filmed by the Nazis who sought to document the day-to-day decline in the health of residents walled off from the rest of the community.

The idea of lethal selection as a means of execution was an American idea, first described by Paul Popenoe and Roswell Hill Johnson in the 1918 handbook,  Applied Eugenics.

A quote from an early 201th Century Eugenics advocate, Alexis Carrel, who says that the disabled should be executed.
From a December 2010 article in The New Statesman: When America believed in eugenics.

This Memorial Day it’s important to remember the enemy: the enemy is racism, ignorance, intolerance, religious bigotry, lies, persecution, and murder.

The enemy is fascism, in all of its forms, wherever it emerges.
