Slander of POles-attemmts to twist Polsh history by semites

adm|Sunday, April 10, 2016

There seems to be a big push around by some anti-Polish disinformation artists posting on White sites their lies and propaganda about the WW2 constantly vilifying and bashing the Polish people. What’s their true purpose for this ?

To say that Hitler was forced into war with Poland by Poland is ridiculously insane and hypocritical after the annexation of Austria and Czechoslovakia. Polish people love their freedom and independence. Unfortunately their country is right in the middle of two power hungry giants. It is absolutely ridiculous to attempt shifting the blame onto simple, peace loving folks that for centuries had to endure the invasions and persecution by their neighbours as it is clearly and historically documented. When the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth lost the last vestiges of its independence in 1795 and remained partitioned for 123 years, ethnic Poles were subjected to Germanization under Prussian and later under German rule, and to Russification in the areas that had been annexed by Imperial Russia. These were experiences enough for Poles not to welcome the Germans with flowers who announced themselves first with the bombardment of Polish cities, which some now attempt to call a “liberation”. How sarcastic! Those nasty comments and lies about ethnic Poles are used by Germans as a way to whitewash their view of Germany’s shameful history and particularly the terror regime established by German state in Poland.
By presenting Poles as the nations that initiated WWII they give German society a justification in the form that the invasion of Poland was the right thing to do. WRONG! The hypocrisy is also evident in further events. There was no Polish killing spree, but on the contrary; there was an invasion, there was a war and there was the “necessary” German propaganda. Oeration Himmler; https://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/docs/Heinrich_Himmler.html   At the very beginning of war anything was possible as the ethnic Germans would take advantage of the situation and Poles clearly defended themselves, which is now called “ethnic cleansing.” The Poles were not brainwashed, but rather past historical events, as presented further below, thought them not to trust their neighbors.
The neo-nazis seem to have an explanation for everything else except their own conduct. A recent study reveals a new nation of bigots that have got it in for Poles as a final insult, the straw is that they wish to break the noble Polish back. Hostility towards Poles and Polish culture may be observed in the following main forms:
• organized persecution of Poles as an ethnic or cultural group, often based on the belief that Polish culture or interests are a threat to one’s own national aspirations;
• racist anti-Polonism, a variety of xenophobia;
• cultural anti-Polonism: a prejudice against Poles and Polish-speaking persons;
• belittling the assistance given by Polish people to Jews during World War II One of the historic examples of Polonophobia was ‘polakożerstwo’ (English translation – devouring of Poles) — a term used in the 19th century to describe the actions taken to suppress Polish culture, education and religion, and eliminate Poles from public life and land property in Eastern Germany under Otto von Bismarck, http://english.turkcebilgi.com/Otto+von+Bismarck, especially during the kulturkampf, http://english.turkcebilgi.com/kulturkampf) all the way until 1918. Historic actions partly inspired by anti-Polonism ranged from felonious acts, the goal of which was to subdue Polish state; to physical extermination of the Polish nation. During World War II, when parts of Polish society were the object of Nazi genocidal policies, German anti-Polonism led to a campaign of mass murder. http://www.holocaustforgotten.com/poland.htm Heinrich Himmler echoed Hitler’s decree: “All Poles will disappear from the world…. It is essential that the great German people should consider it as its major task to destroy all Poles.” http://english.turkcebilgi.com/Anti-Polish+sentiment The groups which are today most frequently accused of being hostile to Poles include German and Russian politicians or political parties, as well as certain Jewish organizations (sometimes as part of an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory). Continued mass-media references to World War II-era “Polish death camps” and “Polish concentration camps” are often cited as examples of anti-Polonism. Although they usually stem from thoughtless English language usage rather than from malicious intentions, these terms in fact refer to German concentration camps set up and run by Nazis, on occupied Polish territory.Those who object to this usage argue that these terms tend to shift responsibility for these camps onto the Poles, rather than simply describe their location in a neutral way. Historical integrity and accuracy hang in the balance. Any misrepresentation of Poland’s role in the Second World War, whether intentional or accidental, would be most regrettable and therefore should not be left unchallenged. An example of a successful campaign against the distortion of historic truth by the media — and in defense of the good name of Poland — will hopefully reduce the number of similar incidents in the future”. Also cited as examples of anti-Polonism are other phrases relating to Poland during World War II, such as “Nazi Poland”, or “Polish Nazis” http://www.maxveritas.com/ How could it be possible for Poland being under the NAZI OCCUPATION HERSELF?! Persistent myths dating back to World War II survive and are meant to illustrate Poles as unintelligent or incompetent. Well, I would like to see the intelligence (actually God forbid) of any other European country being dismembered and oppressed by the powers that were at the time.
Sociologists believe that nasty jokes about Poles are used by Germans as a way to whitewash their view of  German history, and particularly the terror regime established by German state in Poland, by presenting Poles as nations of thieves and criminals, thus giving German society a justification in the form of – “If all Poles are stealing, our grandparents didn’t do anything wrong, when they applied order to them”.
Persecution of Poles and their culture made its appearance in the 18th century in Prussia a rival of Poland in the European political arena. For instance Johann Georg Forster in his private letters dismissed the idea that the Poles were part of European culture, comparing them to primitive tribes and portraying Poland as an underdeveloped, uncivilized land awaiting the importation of Kultur from truly civilized countries. Such views were later repeated in the German ideas of Lebensraum
(http://english.turkcebilgi.com/Lebensraum) and created stereotypes which Nazism would later exploit. Racist texts published in the XVIII century were republished by German Reich after it conquered Poland, reflecting a trend among German scholars from the eighteenth into the twentieth century to perceive, in the difference between Germany and Poland, a boundary between civilization and barbarism, high German Kultur and “primitive Slavdom”. http://www.h-net.org/reviews/showrev.php?id=447
Prussian officials encouraged the view that the Poles were culturally inferior and in need of Prussian tutelage. http://www.oslo2000.uio.no/program/papers/s18/s18-blackbourn.pdf Frederick the Great nourished a particular hatred and contempt for Poles. He spoke of the Poles as “slovenly Polish trash,” “the Iroquois of Europe” and “a barbarous people sunk in ignorance and stupidity”. The consequences were that nobility of Polish origin were obliged to pay higher taxes than that of German heritage, the Polish language was persecuted in Prussia, and Polish monasteries were viewed as “lairs of idleness” and their property often seized by Prussian authorities. The prevalent Catholicism among Poles was stigmatized. In Russia, being a Pole was in itself almost culpable, and authorities sometimes employed anti-Polish riots as a matter of policy. Polish culture and religion was seen as a threat to Russian imperial ambitions, and officials often acted to disrupt Polish culture. Later, with the emergence of Panslavist ideology, Russian writers saw  Poles as betraying their “Slavic family”because of Polish efforts to regain independence from the Russian Empire (the latter being viewed by Russian Panslavists as the natural leader of the Slavic nations). Hostility towards Poles (often based on Polish historical damage caused to Ruthenia/Russia) are present in many of Russia’s cultural works of the time. Russia used deportations, murder and confiscation of Polish nobles’ property to undermine Polish culture and society. The fact that Poles were overwhelmingly of Catholic and not Orthodox faith, likewise gave impetus to persecution, which was seen as a historical revenge and a rollback policy of Polish Catholic expansionism of previous centuries. In Prussia, and later in Germany, Poles were forbidden to build homes, and their properties were targeted for forced buy-outs, financed by the Prussian and German governments. Otto von Bismarck described Poles, as animals (wolves), that “one shoots if one can” and implemented several harsh laws aiming at discrimination of Poles.        The Polish language was banned from use, and Polish children were tortured at school for speaking Polish (Września). Poles were also subject to forced deportations (Rugi Pruskie), and German government encouraged and financed settlement of ethnic Germans into Polish areas aiming at their Germanisation. http://english.turkcebilgi.com/Germanisation). During the First World War, Imperial Germany planned to annex territories in the area of Congress Poland and perform ethnic cleansing of Polish population followed by settlement of Ethnic Germans.
Persecution of ethnic Poles (1918-39) After Poland regained its independence following the First World War as the Second Republic of Poland, the question of its borders was not settled. Poles were persecuted in the disputed territories, especially in Silesia, where this led to the Silesian Uprisings.                                                                                                                                                                                             The aftermath of the Polish-Ukrainian War (1918-19), the Polish-Soviet War (1919-21) and the Treaty of Riga (1921), coupled with Soviet and Polish propaganda, led to growing tensions between Poles and Ukrainians in eastern Poland. World War II (1939-45) Hostility toward Poles reached a particular peak during World War II, when Poles became objects of Nazi genocidal policies. Poland lost approximately a third of its population. Millions of Poles died in mass executions and German concentration camps such as Auschwitz and Treblinka  in occupied Poland. Niemcy roztrzeliwuja Polakow Soviet policy in the non-Polish territories of Poland during World War II was also ruthless, with elements of ethnic cleansing. The Soviets executed Polish prisoners of war in the Katyn Massacre and at other sites, and sent thousands of Polish intelligentsia, including academics and priests, to forced-labor camps (“Gulags”). With the conclusion of the Second World War, Nazi atrocities perforce ended. Soviet oppression continued, however. Soldiers of Poland’s Home Army (Armia Krajowa) and returned veterans of the Polish Armed Forces that had served with the Western Allies were persecuted, sometimes imprisoned and often executed following staged trials (as in the case of Witold Pilecki, the organizer of Auschwitz resistance). Extremist circles and some journalists, when they refer to anti-Polonism, incorporate conspiracy theories which link the historical persecution of the Polish nation with the incidents of present times. Such ideologists link authentic manifestations of historical prejudice or persecution against Poles to support nationalistic views. Examples of anti-Polish sentiments and slander;
• “You are standing opposite to the most dangerous, fanatic enemy of German existence, German honor and German reputation in the world: The Poles.” Slogan of the German nationalistic Hakata movement http://www.zeit.de/2004/26/A-PolBoden?page=all (http://www.zeit.de/2004/26/A-PolBoden/komplettansicht)         _________ • “Poles suck in anti-Semitism with their mothers’ milk.” http://www.nytimes.com/2006/07/23/books/review/23margolick.html?pagewanted=2&ei=5070&en=996c970950ad4786&ex=1163912400    ______ This is something that is deeply imbued in their tradition, their mentality. Like their loathing of Russia. “So clobbeth the Poles so that they despair; they have my deepest sympathy for their sibut, “…if we want to exist, we have no choice but to wipe them out (‘ausrotten’); the wolf cannot help it that he was created by God the way he is, but one shoots him yet, if one can.” – Otto von Bismarck • “Poland’s existence is intolerable and incompatible with the essential conditions of Germany’s life. Poland must go and will go — as a result of her own internal weaknesses and of action by Russia — with our aid. For Russia, Poland is even less tolerable than it is for us; Russia will never put up with Poland’s existence. With Poland, one of the strongest pillars of the Versailles System will fall. To attain this goal must be one of the firmest aiming points of German politics, because it is attainable. Attainable only by means of, or with the help of, Russia. […] The restoration of the border between Germany and Russia is the precondition for regaining strength of both sides. Germany and Russia within the borders of 1914 should be the basis for an agreement between us […].” — Hans von Seeckt, Chief of the Troop Office of the German Army, responsible for shaping German foreign policy, writing after the Treaty of Rapallo (1922).
• • “I have issued the command — and I’ll have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by firing squad — that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly I have placed my Totenkopf Units in readiness — for the present only in the East — with orders to them to send to death, mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish race and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space (Lebensraum) which we need.” “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?” — Adolf Hitler.

The German-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact or the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact caused shock waves in Europe and North America when it was signed. The German and Soviet governments were at odds with one another. This was more than just because of ideology; Germany and the Soviet Union were being played against one another in the events leading up to the Second World War, just as how previously Germany, the Russian Empire, and the Ottoman Empire were played against one another in Eastern Europe. This is why Britain and France only declared war on Berlin, in 1939, when both the U.S.S.R. and Germany had invaded Poland. If the intentions were to protect Poland, then why only declare war against Germany when in reality both the Germans and the Soviets had invaded? There is something much deeper to be said about all this. If Moscow and Berlin had not signed a non-aggression agreement there would have been no declaration of war against Germany. In fact Appeasement was a deliberate policy crafted in the hope of allowing Germany to militarize and then allowing the Nazi government the means, through military might, to create a common German-Soviet border, which would be the prerequisite to an anticipated German-Soviet war that would neutralize the two strongest land powers in Europe and Eurasia. British policy and the rationale for the non-aggression pact between the Soviets and Germans is described best by Carroll Quigley. Quigley, a top ranking U.S. professor of history, on the basis of the diplomatic agreements in Europe and insider information as a professor of the elites, explains the strategic aims of British policy from 1920 to 1938 as: ” To maintain the balance of power in Europe by building up Germany against France and [the Soviet Union]; to increase Britain’s weight in that balance by aligning with her the Dominions [e.g., Australia and Canada] and the United States; to refuse any commitments (especially any commitments through the League of Nations, and above all any commitments to aid France) beyond those existing in 1919; to keep British freedom of action; to drive Germany eastward against [the Soviet Union] if either or both of these two powers became a threat to the peace [probably meaning economic strength] of Western Europe [and most probably implying British interests]. In order to carry out this plan of allowing Germany to drive eastward against [the Soviet Union], it was necessary to do three things: (1) to liquidate all the countries standing between Germany and [the Soviet Union]; (2) to prevent France from [honouring] her alliances with these countries [i.e., Czechoslovakia and Poland]; and (3) to hoodwink the [British] people into accepting this as a necessary, indeed, the only solution to the international problem. The Chamberlain group were so successful in all three of these things that they came within an ace of succeeding, and failed only because of the obstinacy of the Poles, the unseemly haste of Hitler, and the fact that at the eleventh hour the Milner Group realized the [geo-strategic] implications of their policy [which to their fear united the Soviets and Germans] and tried to reverse it. ” It is because of this aim of nurturing Germany into a position of attacking the Soviets that British, Canadian, and American leaders had good rapports (which seem unexplained in standard history textbooks) with Adolph Hitler and the Nazis until the eve of the Second World War. In regards to appeasement under Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and its beginning under the re-militarization of the industrial lands of the Rhineland, Quigley explains: This event of March 1936, by which Hitler remilitarized the Rhineland, was the most crucial event in the whole history of appeasement. So long as the territory west of the Rhine and a strip fifty kilometers wide on the east bank of the river were demilitarized, as provided in the Treaty of Versailles and the Locarno Pacts, Hitler would never have dared to move against Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Poland. He would not have dared because, with western Germany unfortified and denuded of German soldiers, France could have easily driven into the Ruhr industrial area and crippled Germany so that it would be impossible to go eastward. And by this date [1936], certain members of the Milner Group and of the British Conservative government had reached the fantastic idea that they could kill two birds with one stone by setting Germany and [the Soviet Union] against one another in Eastern Europe. In this way they felt that two enemies would stalemate one another, or that Germany would become satisfied with the oil of Rumania and the wheat of the Ukraine. It never occurred to anyone in a responsible position that Germany and [the Soviet Union] might make common cause, even temporarily, against the West. Even less did it occur to them that [the Soviet Union] might beat Germany and thus open all Central Europe to Bolshevism. The liquidation of the countries between Germany and [the Soviet Union] could proceed as soon as the Rhineland was fortified, without fear on Germany’s part that France would be able to attack her in the west while she was occupied in the east.” In regards to eventually creating a common German-Soviet, the French-led military alliance had to first be neutralized. The Locarno Pacts were fashioned by British foreign policy mandarins to prevent France from being able to militarily support Czechoslovakia and Poland in Eastern Europe and thus to intimidate Germany from halting any attempts at annexing both Eastern European states. Quigley writes: [T]he Locarno agreements guaranteed the frontier of Germany with France and Belgium with the powers of these three states plus Britain and Italy. In reality the agreements gave France nothing, while they gave Britain a veto over French fulfillment of her alliances with Poland and the Little Entente. The French accepted these deceptive documents for reason of internal politics (…) This trap [as Quigley calls the Locarno agreements] consisted of several interlocking factors. In the first place, the agreements did not guarantee the German frontier and the demilitarized condition of the Rhineland against German actions, but against the actions of either Germany or France. This, at one stroke, gave Britain the right to oppose any French action against Germany in support of her allies to the east of Germany. This meant that if Germany moved east against Czechoslovakia, Poland, and eventually [the Soviet Union], and if France attacked Germany’s western frontier in support of Czechoslovakia or Poland, as her alliances bound her to do, Great Britain, Belgium, and Italy might be bound by the Locarno Pacts to come to the aid of Germany. The Anglo-German Naval Agreement of 1935 was also deliberately signed by Britain to prevent the Soviets from joining the neutralized military alliance between France, Czechoslovakia, and Poland. Quigley writes: Four days later, Hitler announced Germany’s rearmament, and ten days after that, Britain condoned the act by sending Sir John Simon on a state visit to Berlin. When France tried to counterbalance Germany’s rearmament by bringing the Soviet Union into her eastern alliance system in May 1935, the British counteracted this by making the Anglo-German Naval Agreement of 18 June 1935. This agreement, concluded by Simon, allowed Germany to build up to 35 percent of the size of the British Navy (and up to 100 percent in submarines). This was a deadly stab in the back of France, for it gave Germany a navy considerably larger than the French in the important categories of ships (capital ships and aircraft carriers), because France was bound by treaty to only 33 percent of Britain’s; and France in addition, had a worldwide empire to protect and the unfriendly Italian Navy off her Mediterranean coast. This agreement put the French Atlantic coast so completely at the mercy of the German Navy that France became completely dependent on the British fleet for protection in this area. The Hoare-Laval Plan was also used to stir Germany eastward instead of southward towards the Eastern Mediterranean, which the British saw as the critical linchpin holding their empire together and connecting them through the Egyptian Suez Canal to India. Quigley explains: The countries marked for liquidation included Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Poland, but did not include Greece and Turkey, since the [Milner] Group had no intention of allowing Germany to get down onto the Mediterranean ‘lifeline.’ Indeed, the purpose of the Hoare-Laval Plan of 1935, which wrecked the collective-security system by seeking to give most Ethiopia to Italy, was intended to bring an appeased Italy in position alongside [Britain], in order to block any movement of Germany southward rather than eastward [towards the Soviet Union]. Both the Soviet Union, under Joseph Stalin, and Germany, under Adolph Hitler, ultimately became aware of the designs for the planning of a German-Soviet war and because of this both Moscow and Berlin signed a non-aggression pact prior to the Second World War. The German-Soviet arrangement was largely a response to the Anglo-American stance. In the end it was because of Soviet and German distrust for one another that the Soviet-German alliance collapsed and the anticipated German-Soviet war came to fruition as the largest and deadliest war theatre in the Second World War, the Eastern Front. Please refer to –   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8pIijomQo4 A significant proportion of Polish citizenry have always prided themselves in a traditional Polish tolerance evident in the multi-ethnic Kingdom of Poland, which has never been appreciated. Therefore, for Poles,  anything perceived as a slur on the good name of their country arouses passionate rebuttals and charges of malevolence and “anti-Polonism”. We will strive to address the best interests of traditional Poles and European (of Polish) descendants – wherever they might live – a once proud and noble people, who have been maligned and misrepresented by  hostile, deliberately misinforming medias increasingly destructive to the positive values and heroic ideals of Polish nation, who fought not only for theirs but also for your freedom.
