Holocaust victim testimony complete with media spinSubmitted by paul4won on Tue, 01/27/2009 - 10:04
I do not doubt for a moment that these people suffered at the hands of soldiers. Our men are raping our women and they are on the same "side." Abu Ghraib. Guantanimo. Yeah, nasty things happen when people take prisoners. However, the media begins this story, in bold type, with this:
"Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January is an occasion for Jews and Roma (Gypsies) to remind the world how their families were terrorised and butchered by the Nazis in World War II."
and the media offers up this:
"Historians often call it "the forgotten Holocaust". Up to 500,000 Roma are believed to have died in mass shootings and Nazi gas chambers."
The survivors themselves actually say this:
"We lost our carts, horses, all our baggage and all the gold our fathers had hidden in the carts' shafts," Mr Stanescu says.
"They died because of the bitter cold, because there was nothing to eat and you couldn't wash. I think filth was the main killer: lice were crawling everywhere, like teeming ants in an anthill. That was our ordeal."
We walked back, barefoot. Parents carried children on their shoulders. But time and again, one of these little ones would slip and fall off the grown-up's back. They died of hunger."
And near the end, the "journalist" admits this:
"Some 25,000 Roma deportees are accounted for and the number of dead is thought to be 11,000."
They continue to re-write history right before our eyes. Do you see it, or cling blindly to the version you were indoctrinated with as a child?
This little unhypnotist would like you to go back and desensitize yourself to the word "gas chamber." Make sure you continue to read with your critical thinking capacity intact whenever you come across a word with a lot of emotional impact. Please note no survivor mentions gas chambers; only disease, sexual abuse, beatings - you know, standard POW treatment even for our military. Hell, these folks did not even get water-boarded.
