West and East: United Against World War II Truth
By Brandon Martinez
The West and East are divided on many issues today, but not on the necessity to keep the myths of the Second World War alive.
In dozens of Western countries, it is forbidden by law to voice any doubt about the official interpretation of World War II as the sadistic madmen and war criminals in Washington, London and Moscow have relayed it to the masses. Russian President Vladimir Putin followed suit in this regard, recently banning revisionist viewpoints concerning the ‘Holocaust’ in Russia, a testament to his authoritarian communist roots.
On this latest ‘Holocaust Remembrance Day,’ the West’s fawning leadership lined up one by one to pay their tributes to the sacred “six million.” The Eastern leadership is not far behind their Western counterparts in groveling acquiescence to what revisionist scholar Arthur Butz dubbed the ‘hoax of the twentieth century,’ despite the superficial fissures in their present-day relations. Dutifully bowing at the alter of Jewish exceptionalism in the form of rigid ‘Holocaust’ victimology, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin weighed in on the occasion with this bit of unmatched doublespeak:
There can’t be and there is no limit for such crimes. They can’t be forgiven or forgotten. Any attempt to cover up these events, to distort or rewrite history is unacceptable and immoral. Such attempts are driven by a desire to hide one’s own shame — shame of cowardice, hypocrisy and betrayal — to justify direct or indirect tacit complicity with the Nazis.
Re-writing history to hide shame and bury truths about “cowardice, hypocrisy and betrayal” is the bread and butter of the winners, not the losers, of any war. Despite Putin’s willful ignorance, the Soviet Union was counted among the victorious powers of World War II and did its fair share of revising and distorting of history to whitewash the realities of Soviet war crimes.
Victors Write the History
As the ancient maxim goes, history is a set of fables agreed upon by the winners of war. But Putin, like his supposed adversaries in the West, seems to neglect that axiom whenever he speaks about the Second World War.
The former KGB chief would have us forget one of many Soviet deceptions at the rigged post-war Nuremberg show trials where vindictive Soviet officials attempted in vain to frame Germany for the bloody massacre of tens of thousands of Polish prisoners at Katyn, a particularly odious atrocity which bore the communists’ signature (a bullet in the back of the neck) and indeed proved to be the handiwork of Stalin’s henchmen.
In his latest public remarks to commemorate the ‘Holocaust,’ Putin went on to extol the virtues of the Red Army for their ‘heroic’ deed of ‘liberating’ Europe from Fascism by enslaving it to Communism. Another wondrous Soviet ‘achievement’ was the creation of the Gulag Archipelago, a vast network of slave labour camps where millions of people were worked and starved to death in horrendous conditions, or simply shot by NKVD executioners for the slightest gesture of disobedience.
Besides enforcing Stalin’s iron rule over millions of hapless subjects, Putin’s Red Army heroes ran roughshod across Eastern and Central Europe at the close of World War II, raping and murdering everything in their path. “Kill the Germans! Kill the Fascists!” was the Red Army’s rallying cry as they rampaged from village to village, burning and ransacking the homesteads of innocents as they pleased. Erecting the ‘Iron Curtain’ of communist dictatorships stretching across half of Europe in 1945 can’t be overlooked as yet another superlative legacy of Sovietism, certainly worthy of Putin’s accolades.
Where is Putin’s outrage at the Soviet sneak attack on Finland in late 1939? Where is his righteous indignation about the Soviet invasion and annexation of Eastern Poland and the Baltic states – Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia – during the early stages of the war? Long before Germany moved its forces eastward in 1941, the Soviets had already Bolshevized those nations, sucking them into the communist vortex by way of brute force. Shortly after entering those jurisdictions uninvited, the Soviet secret police (NKVD) – one of the fiercest killing machines in modern history – liquidated the best and brightest of Poland, Finland and the Baltics as ‘enemies of the people’ (i.e., the Soviet regime) and then shipped hundreds of thousands of ‘useless eaters’ to the frosty hell of the Siberian slave camps.
Russian Hypocrisy & Jewish Chutzpah
All of this inhumanity goes unmentioned by Putin, while he hypocritically traduces Ukrainian patriots who resisted Soviet occupation as ‘Nazi collaborators’ that should “never be forgiven.” How dare those Ukrainians make common cause with Germany in World War II, says the indignant Putin, while singing the praises of Stalinist aggression. Only pure ignorance of history or simply a demented breed of hubris can explain Putin’s twofaced charges against the Ukrainians.
Putin seems to forget the very real misery inflicted upon the people of Ukraine seven years before the outbreak of World War II, and it wasn’t Nazis who did the dirty work, it was the Bolsheviks. In 1932, Stalin dispatched thousands of communist party apparatchiks to Ukraine to enforce his ‘collectivization’ scheme, which was nothing more than a subterfuge designed to starve millions of Ukrainians to death. Fearing a Ukrainian nationalist uprising against Soviet encroachment, Stalin decided the best way to deal with the proud Ukrainians was to put them on a permanent diet. NKVD officers meticulously searched Ukrainian homesteads, seizing all of their grains, farm animals and everything else of any value. Those who refused to comply were shot on sight.
Then the Soviets effectively pad-locked Ukraine’s borders and halted all means of transportation, thereby preventing people from escaping the inevitable and deliberately induced famine. “OGPU agents and Red Army troops sealed all roads and rail lines. Nothing came in or out of Ukraine. Farms were searched and looted of food and fuel. Ukrainians quickly began to die of hunger, cold and sickness,” observed journalist Eric Margolis in a 1998 article on the subject entitled “Remembering Ukraine’s Unknown Holocaust.” Margolis further explained: “When OGPU failed to meet weekly execution quotas, Stalin sent henchman Lazar Kaganovitch to destroy Ukrainian resistance. Kaganovitch, the Soviet Eichmann, made quota, shooting 10,000 Ukrainians weekly. Eighty percent of all Ukrainian intellectuals were executed. A Ukrainian party member named Nikita Khruschchev helped supervise the slaughter.” At the height of the calamity, Ukrainians were forced to eat “their pets, boots and belts, plus bark and roots,” Margolis noted. “Some parents even ate infant children.” When it was all said and done, the genocidal Soviet scheme produced millions of corpses, which littered the streets of Kiev, Odessa and other Ukrainian cities as if a meteor had wiped out all life in the region.
The Ukrainian famine, now known as the ‘Holodomor,’ was an act of senseless slaughter, motivated partly by Jewish antipathy towards the Ukrainian Gentile Christian population. In the aforesaid article, Eric Margolis made note of the Jewish roots of many of the communist perpetrators behind the genocide. “Kaganovitch and many senior OGPU officers (later, NKVD) were Jewish,” he conceded. “The predominance of Jews among Bolshevik leaders,” wrote Margolis, “and the frightful crimes and cruelty inflicted by Stalin’s Cheka on Ukraine, the Baltic states and Poland, led the victims of Red Terror to blame the Jewish people for both communism and their suffering.” In 2009, the Ukrainian security service compiled a list of names of communists behind the famine. “Most of the names on the list were Jewish,” reported the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. That explains why, in 2010, Israeli politician Shimon Peres told Ukrainians to “forget history.” “History is not important at all,” Peres insisted in a devious attempt to whitewash the transgressions of his co-religionists.
When the Soviets invaded Eastern Europe during World War II, some locals sided with their communist conquerors. Large numbers of Jews in Poland, Ukraine and the Baltics betrayed their respective countries, and defected to the Soviets. Jews often led the brutal pro-Soviet partisan units who hunted down and killed thousands of anti-communist patriots. Jewish communist partisan groups routinely committed acts of banditry and were responsible for many massacres against Poles, Ukrainians, Lithuanians and others. In his study of the Soviet occupation of Poland entitled “Together Forever”: The Soviet Occupation of Eastern Poland during the Second World War, Polish historian Daniel Boćkowski writes of how many Polish Jews “collaborated with the [Soviet] occupant on a massive scale, applied for positions in administration, joined the [Soviet secret] police and openly sneered at us and our tragedy.”
In 2007, Lithuania sought to prosecute a number of Jews for their involvement in massacres against Lithuanians during the war. Two of the culprits pursued by Vilnius to no avail were Yitzak Arad and Sara Ginaitė. Amazingly, Arad is the former director of Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum and Ginaitė is a professor of Holocaust studies at Canada’s York University. In his article entitled “Jewish Partisan Warfare During WWII,” Peter Stuyvesant points out the moral hypocrisy of Jews who “hide themselves behind the moral veil of antifascism, while they were actually willing collaborators of the brutal Soviet occupiers between 1939 and 1944, and complicit in suppressing the nationalist aspirations of Poles and Lithuanians.”
Jewish support for Bolshevism long preceded the events of World War II. Shortly after the Bolsheviks seized control of Russia in 1917, communist leader Vladimir Lenin established a conduit army to do his bidding in Ukraine. A 1922 New York Times report headlined “South Russian Jews Raise Strong Army” detailed the activities of a militia comprised of 500,000 pro-Bolshevik Jews who administered Lenin’s terrorist directives throughout Ukraine. According to the Times, the Jewish militia worked hand in hand with Soviet authorities and was “a supreme force in some cities,” enforcing the will of Lenin’s communist regime on the people of Ukraine.
Jewish chauvinists filled the ranks of the communist parties and secret police agencies not only in Ukraine, but also in Russia, Poland, Hungary and the Baltics. The Encyclopedia Judaica, a Jewish publication, noted in its article on Communism that the ideology “played an important part in Jewish life, particularly in the 1920s, 1930s, and during and after World War II.” The same article confirmed that Jews “played an important role in the early stages of Bolshevism and the Soviet Regime” and that “the bulk of Russian Jewish youth” joined the Bolshevik insurgency against the Russian Czar in 1917. The article disclosed that in some countries Jews “became the leading element in the legal and illegal Communist parties” and were instructed by the Communist International to “change their Jewish-sounding names and pose as non-Jews” in order to mask the Jewish nature of the movement. The article further acknowledged that Jews occupied “many responsible positions in all branches of the [Soviet communist] party and state machinery at the central and local seats of power.”
Further validation of the Jewish ethnic character behind Communism was Lenin’s insistence that ‘anti-Semitism’ be outlawed as a “counter-revolutionary” activity. In 1918, Lenin issued a decree calling for the execution of anti-Semites, suggesting that their actions were “fatal to the interests of the revolution.” He instructed all Bolshevik deputies across Russia to “take uncompromising measures to tear the anti-Semitic movement out by the roots. Pogromists and pogrom agitators are to be placed outside of the law.” Leon Trotsky, the Jewish chieftain of the Red Army, boasted about the Bolsheviks’ policy of neutralizing all opposition to Jews. In a 1918 interview published in The Ogden Examiner, Trotsky gleefully recognized that in a Bolshevik-ruled Russia anti-Semites were to be “executed on the spot without trial.” Soviet foreign minister Molotov substantiated the existence of this murderous policy in the Soviet Union in a 1936 speech, telling a gathering of communist functionaries that, unlike in Hitler’s Germany, the USSR was a safe place for the Jews where “actual anti-Semites are shot.”
Even the self-professed Zionist and philosemite Winston Churchill recognized this hidden truth of history. In a 1920 article titled “Zionism Versus Bolshevism: A Struggle for the Soul of the Jewish People,” Churchill named Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Bela Kun, Rosa Luxemburg, Emma Goldman and other communist leaders as part of a “sinister confederacy” of “International Jews” aimed at the “overthrow of civilization.” The Jewish role in Bolshevism was “a very great one” that “outweighs all [other factors],” Churchill wrote. He added that “[t]he majority of the leading [Bolshevik] figures are Jews” and that “the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders.”
Distorting History & Suppressing Truth
The Western world, long under the thumb of International Zionism, has gone to great lengths to eliminate dissentient viewpoints regarding World War II and its legacy. Spineless Western politicians continue to kowtow to Zionist lobbies that work to muzzle any views which contradict the core precepts of their ethnocentric sob stories. Again and again we see freedom of speech and inquiry come under attack by Zionist forces whose toxic aims and desires are starkly opposed to true Western values.
But the Eastern world is now equally committed to combatting revisionist interpretations of World War II history, considering their own sordid role in the bloodiest conflict the world has ever seen. A status quo agreement has been established between the major Western and Eastern powers. While we may not agree on foreign affairs or economics, the West’s and East’s duplicitous leaders tell each other behind closed doors, we can at least come together to stem the growing tide of truth that our professional censors and disinformation peddlers have been unable to keep a lid on.
However, this dishonest arrangement between the powerbrokers of the West and East cannot hold back the rising sense of awareness and growing public interest in real, truthful history. The public’s increasing thirst for knowledge will eventually overcome all of the barriers that the deceivers in power have instituted and will wash away the multitude of lies and untruths that have confounded the masses for far too long.
