Hold on just a tick. Listen, I’m Jewish, so I’m perfectly capable of understanding that what he did was just…..well, there are no words for it. But let’s not round it up to simply Jews that got killed. It was six million people that died in those camps, not just Jews. Did you know that homosexuals were sent there, too? Yeah, I’m sure you did. They had to wear special little symbols on their clothes. Do you know what it was? It was a pink triangle.
It was six million PEOPLE.
But you let that roll over in your mind for a while and you are going to forever see this man as a monster, but that’s not what he was. He was someone who thought he was truly doing something right for his nation, no matter how shitty he was doing it. Believe me when I say that I don’t like him. I really don’t. My grandfather’s brothers died in those camps, and my grandfather escaped to Spain, then to Mexico. He was lucky.
This is not a monster holding hands with a little girl.
This is Adolf Hitler, a man, holding hands with a little girl.
Yeah. It’s fucking scary. It really is. Do you know why?
It’s because you’re seeing that he wasn’t, in fact, a monster. You’re seeing in this picture that he was a man. He was a man, and that’s really the saddest part of it all.
As a History major who specializes in the history of early modern Europe, I’ve studied a lot of dictators in detail, not just Hitler. The number one mistake anyone could ever make in history is making the assumption that only inhuman monsters are capable of doing terrible things.
Stop dehumanizing Hitler just so you can reassure yourself that “normal” humans aren’t capable of doing bad things. Hitler liked children and dogs, he was a vegetarian and he cried like a little boy when his mother died. I’m not saying he was a good, innocent person, but when you stop attributing human characteristics to historical figures like Hitler, it’s how you overlook people just like him in real life, and it’s how people like him end up back in power.
That’s the real truth: Human Beings are scarier than any ‘monsters’ out there because we’re all born blank slates and BECOME our legacy.
This is the best post I’ve seen in a while.
6 million Jews were murdered, however the remaining 5 million individuals (which brings it up to 11 million) were homosexuals, disabled and blacks.
11 million individuals.
yeah he killed 11 million people but at least he thought he was doing the right thing!!!111!!!!1!
Sadly, he did think he was doing the right thing. See the thing with genocide is the first step to to whole process is dehumanization. He simply didn’t BELIEVE that those 11 million individuals were people. He believed that only way to save his country was to get rid of the “pests”. The fact that HE thought it was the right thing doesn’t justify what he did. but it shows hoe terrifying human really are; They are able to see human beings as nothing but mere roaches…
It seems most people have a problem admitting that human beings can be such horrible people. It’s pretty naive and actually a terrible idea since dehumanising them only facilitates a Good guys vs. Bad guys outlook on history.
when you wait for something to happen and it never does
OH MY GOD I HATE YOU
CARTOON NETWORK DID NOT DO ANYTHING TO THE ORIGINAL TEEN TITANS SERIES. OKAY?
THEY MADE A NEW SERIES. A NEW SERIES. NEW ONE.
Yes, Teen Titans Go! was based on the first one, but for the sake of humanity people need to start realizing that they are two entirely different shows. They didn’t change anything in the original series.
I’m so done with seeing “What have they done to Teen Titans??” because THEY DID NOT DO ANYTHING.
They did do a lot of unforgivable things. Teen Titans Go! is not one of them.
And now it’s time for one last bow, like all your other selves. Eleven’s hour is over now. The clock is striking Twelve’s.
Accordion to a recent survey, replacing words with the names of musical instruments in a sentence often goes undetected.
im so fucking angry
( X )
you know what? fuck the saying "no one will love you until you love yourself." that’s bullshit. loving yourself is fucking difficult. fuck that saying because you could totally hate yourself but someone else could find you completely breathtaking. just because you don’t love yourself doesn’t mean someone won’t want to show you what there is to love.
