How Very Sad It Is

The history of the world changed 74 years ago today. The continent of Europe was invaded to end Nazi tyranny. Those men were heroes. Every. Last. One. Of. Them. We learned about them in school. Our fathers and grandfathers were there. Some came home. Some are still there.

In our education system today, American history isn’t even taught. Kids have no idea where their freedom came from and who paid for it. They don’t care. They’re preoccupied with social nonsense of the day, mostly life with a phone in their hand.

There are but a very small handful of men who went through that hell. They’re almost gone. When they are, so will end the best we ever had as a nation. Most kids today never even heard of World War II. They couldn’t care less. Too bad they don’t realize that these men were more badass than these snowflakes ever dreamed of being.

Today Is The Anniversary Of D-Day. Here’s How Bada** Our Paratroopers Were

It’s almost hard to put into words just how incredible the paratroopers who brought the fight to the Germans really were. These were young men, often younger than myself, who were jumping out of planes to surprise, fight, capture and kill the enemy on that fateful day in Normandy

The most amazing lie in history: how a chicken farmer, a pair of princesses, and 27 imaginary spies helped the Allies win World War II

The Allies’ top-secret weapon.

Only one man in history was both awarded the Iron Cross for his service to Nazi Germany AND also made a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by King George VI. That man was Juan Pujol Garcia, a draft-dodging chicken farmer and failed businessman from Barcelona who decided during World War II to become a double agent in order to help the Allies defeat Hitler. Here is his amazing story, as recounted by Lucas Reilly in Mental Floss:

In the weeks leading up to D-day, Allied commanders had their best game faces on. “This operation is not being planned with any alternatives,” barked General Dwight D. Eisenhower. “This operation is planned as a victory, and that’s the way it’s going to be!” Indeed, more than 6,000 ships were ready to cruise across the English Channel to plant the first wave of two million troops on the white beaches of Normandy. Nearly 20,000 vehicles would crawl ashore as 13,000 planes dropped thousands of tons of explosives and thousands of paratroopers.

The sheer size of the invasion—it would be the largest in history—was staggering. But so were the stakes. With the first day’s casualty rate expected to reach 90 percent and the outcome of World War II hanging in the balance, the truth was that Eisenhower was riddled with doubt. He’d transformed into an anxious chimney, puffing four packs of cigarettes a day. Other Allied leaders felt equally unsure. “I see the tides running red with their blood,” Winston Churchill lamented. General George S. Patton privately complained of feeling “awfully restless.” Chief of the Imperial General Staff Alan Brooke was more blunt: “It won’t work,” he said. The day before the invasion, Eisenhower quietly penciled a note accepting blame in case he had to order retreat. When he watched the last of the 101st Airborne Division take off, the steely general started to cry.

They were worried for good reason. With so many troops and so much artillery swelling in England, it was impossible to keep the attack a secret. Hitler knew it was coming, and he’d been preparing a defense for months. Only one detail eluded him, and he was confident in a Nazi victory if he could figure it out—he needed to know where, exactly, the attack would happen. To make D-day a success, the Allies needed to keep him in the dark: They’d have to trick the Germans into thinking the real invasion was just a bluff, while making it seem like a major attack was imminent elsewhere. The task seemed impossible, but luckily, the British had a secret weapon: a short, young balding Spaniard. He was the king of con men, an amateur spy gone pro, the world’s sneakiest liar. He was also, of all things, a chicken farmer.

Will They Be Forgotten?

Will D-Day fade into history when the last World War II veteran is gone?

Today is the 73rd anniversary of that June 6, 1944, invasion of France that saw one of the largest forces ever assembled for battle on land, sea and air.

Some 156,000 American, British and Canadian troops attacked German defenders along a 50-mile stretch of heavily defended Normandy coastline.

An estimated 4,000 Allied troops were killed, but by the end of the day the beachheads had been secured in an invasion that was called the beginning of the end of the war in Europe.

The number of living veterans who served in World War II is dwindling; down from 16 million during the war to about 500,000 today (Ohio has more than 26,000). They’re dying at a rate of 372 a day, with an average age now in the 90s.

Given that our so-called “educators” are largely anti-war, anti-capitalist propagandists revisionist history is a large part of their lesson plan. The removal of most statues of Confederate Civil War figures, which have been labeled as ‘racist’ in the South, is a prime example of destroying our history from the inside out.
The men who stormed the Normandy beaches were mostly 18 and 19 year old men. They faced almost certain death without flinching because their sense of duty demanded it. Fast forward to today, where these pampered snowflakes demand “safe spaces” and whine incessantly about anything that upsets them.
How about the Tommies, who fought alongside the Americans, Canadians, and Australians? The land they sacrificed for has been overrun by terrorists who were welcomed in to live off the government, sequester themselves and foment the savagery and barbarism their religion preaches.
We’ve raised a generation of whiners and people who think they deserve special treatment because they’ve been labeled ‘oppressed minorities’ and given special consideration.
One thing I can be grateful for is that I needn’t be a witness to this insanity much longer.

The Day That Changed The World

Seventy-two years ago today the battle to free an oppressed Europe that had been subjugated to five years of unspeakable terror began. The combined forces of the free world began to wrest a continent from Nazi aggression. Fortunately we were educated at a time when it was accepted that the people who gave all in the cause of liberty were heroes. We were taught there is a right and wrong, good and bad, and black and white. Nowadays there is no black and white, everything is pastel, and children are told that we were the aggressor. The re-writing of history began after the union took hold of the teachers and the focus shifted from fact to political ideology.
The nation was fortunate to be led by men of honor and principle back then. There is no circumstance under which we could be united as one, making the sacrifices that had to be made to survive as a free people. There are too many lazy, willfully ignorant people who whine to be protected and have their lives planned for them by an over-arching government. It appears Almighty God granted us a few more decades back then until the Sodomites began the decay of what was built on a faith in Christian ideals. These are the people who paid for the freedom we had at one time.

THIS IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY FROM ALLIED SUPREME COMMANDER, DWIGHT DAVID EISENHOWER. IMAGINE, IF YOU WILL, ANY DEMOCRAT WHO COULD ISSUE THESE ORDERS WITH CREDIBILITY.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

Order of the Day

Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Forces:

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944. Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory.

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory.

Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

***********************************************

We made these warriors and those who came after them a promise to care for them in exchange for what they secured for us. Sadly, we have reneged on those promises in the most shameful ways imaginable. Many of those who served with honor are pushed aside in favor of people who invaded our country illegally and take what should be given to those who truly are deserving. Gomorrah is in sight and we are rushing toward it unabated. At least these brave heroes bought us a little more time. I fear that soon it will all be for naught.

JUNE 6; THE LIBERATION BEGINS

Posted by Pistol Pete

More than a year in planning. Multi-national forces staging for months in England under strict secrecy. Tens of thousands of soldiers supported by 5,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft. They finally get the ‘go’ order and are packed into troop transports for the perilous trip across the Channel. Imagine what went through the mind of every man. This may be his last day. He thinks of his family and all the plans he’d made for the future. He looks at the man next to him. Will he make it to the beach? Will he even get out of the landing craft?
They know there are thousands of machine guns and artillery pieces to challenge the invasion. They never hesitate because they’ve been trained for this. They didn’t ask for it,but it came. Millions of people were dying and it had to be stopped. The waves buffet the craft from side to side and it stops short of the beach in three feet of water. The ramp flops down as you hear the chatter of machine guns. Your heart pounds as you grip your rifle. Time to go.

I was in my car at 4:30 AM when I heard the despot who currently occupies the White House read some words that somebody wrote for him. I had to turn it off. I could not bear to hear him speak words that were as empty as his soul.

In the foreground is a man who hardly deserves to be on the same ground the men in the background consecrated. Until the United States was settled nearly every war had been fought for conquest. With the emergence of America as a global power and a beacon for those craving the opportunity to live free we have never taken up arms except to liberate an oppressed people.
4400 lost their lives 70 years ago today. Thousands more suffered the same fate in the following days. All we asked from the countries we freed was enough ground to bury our dead.
The world has never seen the like of these warriors and never will again. It is our responsibility to teach our children about what these men sacrificed so that they will not have died in vain. Never forget.

THE D-DAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

There was precious little anywhere on the 69th anniversary of D-Day.Given the media’s disdain of the military,this is unsurprising.We are losing WWII veterans at a rate of 600 per day.Soon,they will all be gone.Given that the left writes the history books the magnificent sacrifice these men made will be ignored and too soon forgotten.The only place I found anything resembling an homage to their bravery was in a UK newspaper.I use the Telegraph and the Guardian a lot,because they report things our media whores ignore.There are more images at the link,but I pulled a couple photos for you.I’m still in a really bad funk,but I’ll do the best I can.No promises.

I HAVE MANY POLITICAL PICTURES TO POST,BUT I CANNOT,IN GOOD CONSCIENCE,POLLUTE THE MEMORY OF THESE BRAVE MEN BY LUMPING THEM IN WITH COMMON,GARDEN VARIETY LIARS AND CROOKS.I JUST CAN’T DO IT.

THIS  IS AS REVERENT A TRIBUTE TO THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE AS YOU WILL FIND.DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND TAKE A LOOK.
