For rex and Belgum';Beyond Leon Degrelle and the Belgian Waffen SS: Full-Blown Belgian-Collaborator Endorsement of Nazi Ideology

Belgian Europarliament leader Guy Verhofstadt has called Polish Independence Day marchers Nazis. This mendacity is especially ironic because it was Belgium, not Poland, that fit this bill. Read on



THE AQRA: BELGIAN NAZI COLLABORATORS COMPLETELY EMBRACE NAZI NORDIC RACISM

Authors de Bruyne and Rikmenspoel write, "The AMIS DU GRAND REICH ALLEMAND--or AGRA for short--was founded in Liege on 13 March 1941, by Rexist dissidents, unconditional sympathizers of Nazi Germany...AGRA members did not recognize Degrelle's authority; only Hitler was the undisputed leader of the New Europe. The AGRA movement was in favor of creating a racial state and claimed Wallonia belonged to the Nordic vital space, in which Nazi Germany was the shining light...Although AGRA ["several thousands" in 1941-1942: p. 47] had far less members than Rex, it was the second New Order grouping in importance in Wallonia and the Rex Movement's most dangerous opponent." (p. 47).

RELATIVELY HIGH RATES OF NAZI COLLABORATION IN THE BELGIAN POPULATION AS A WHOLE

The authors, de Bruyne and Rikmenspoel, thus summarize the odious facts, "For the French-speaking part of Belgium (38.53% of the population, that is 3.5 million inhabitants), the investigated cases numbered 110,803 [3.2% of the 3.5 million], and are shown in Table 1 [elaborated in the next paragraph]. In Wallonia, statistics show that 0.52% of the Walloon population (and 0.56% of Brussels capital city) were convicted, under various degrees and under various forms, of having collaborated with the enemy." (pp. 86-87). [To put these rates in perspective, only 1 in 4,000 (0.025%) ethnic Poles collaborated with the Nazis. See THE FORGOTTEN HOLOCAUST, by Lukas]. (pp. 86-87).

As for the contents of Table 1 (p. 87), the 110,803 Francophone Belgian Nazi collaborators are apportioned as follows: 24,317 (military collaboration), 29,016 (political collaboration), 17,066 (press, radio, cinema), 17,454 (economic collaboration), 502 (espionage), and 2,388 (various).

COLLABORATION IN ORDER TO EVADE JUSTICE FOR CRIMES

Authors de Bruyne and Rikmenspoel (pp. 192-193) identify several motives for Belgian collaboration with the Third Reich. One of these was by "individuals attracted by material advantages for themselves and their families; individuals eager to avoid a criminal conviction..." (p. 193).

Let us put this in broader context. Neo Stalinist Jan Grabowski, in his JUDENJAGD (Hunt for the Jews), has tried to make a big deal of the (alleged) fact that a tiny number of Poles, who had ostensibly collaborated with the Nazis in killing Jews, later switched their services to the new Soviet masters of Poland, and joined Communist formations (e. g, the dreaded BEZPIEKA, or U. B.). If true, this is nothing remarkable. As the Belgian example shows, it is common for collaborationists to be driven by extreme selfish opportunism, and for criminals to collaborate with an enemy in order to escape justice for their criminality.

LESSON FOR TODAY:

Guy Verhofstadt should not be talking about Poland, but about his own Belgium.
