The damage the Jews have done to America since 1945 far, far outweighs the damage done to the Jews by the Germans between 1933 and 1945. And the eventual death toll among our own people before we have cleaned up the mess the Jews have made of America will far exceed their losses during the so-called “Holocaust.” We Americans have made some big mistakes, but really, going to war against our own kinsmen in Europe in order to save the Jews from Hitler was our biggest mistake.

The real harm is to our children. As long as we remain suspicious of the wrong people, predators will continue to have free reign to abuse innocent children. If they remain free from scrutiny because everyone else is focusing on gays and lesbians, more young lives will continue to be shattered and more parents will suffer the agonizing heartache of learning that they trusted someone who destroyed their child’s future.

I think the term "classical liberal" is also equally applicable. I don't really care very much what I'm called. I'm much more interested in having people thinking about the ideas, rather than the person. Milton Friedman

This episode of Tanks chronicles the exploits of SS-Hauptsturmführer Michael Wittmann (1914-1944)
Michael Wittmann's later actions are known to most readers in Normandy campaign. However, Wittmann began his career as a tank ace in actually an assault gun; the StuG III. In the Ukraine Whitmann found success with the StuG III against T-34's. He was credited with several victories during this time. On July 12, 1941, Wittmann received the first of many awards; the Iron Cross Second Class. When asked, at the presentation of the medal, if he had any special requests, Wittmann requested that a T-34 crew be given treatment afforded any brave soldier. His request was granted. Whitmann was awarded the; Iron Cross First Class on September 8th, 1941. Wittmann, his crew, and their StuG III nicknamed "Buzzard" were quickly making a name for themselves fighting against superior T-34/76.
On December 20th 1942 Wittmann completed the Officer Training course at Bad Tölz. He was commissioned a SS-Untersturmführer (2nd Lieutenant) and assigned to Heavy Panzer Replacement Battalion 500. Wittmann checked out in a long-barreled PzKw IV. Soon after Wittmann began training in the weapon that would make him famous; the PzKw VI "Tiger." As fortune would have it, he was paired with an excellent crew. One the soon to be best gunners in the Waffen-SS, Rottenführer Balthasar "Bobby" Woll first met Wittmann during this training. With Whitmann, Woll, loader Rottenführer Karl Berges, driver Rottenführer Gustav 'Gustl' Kirschmer and gunner/radio operator Rottenführer Herbert Pollmann the Waffen-SS had assembled one of the best tank crews in history.
Whitmann returned to the Russian Front assigned to 1 SS Panzer Grenadier "Leibstandarte." Whitmann was assigned to first a PzKw III J, but soon received command of a Tiger. During Operation "Zitadelle" (Kursk) Wittmann is credited with 30 victories and 28 anti-tank guns. Wittmann was awarded the Knight's Cross.
The famed battle that took place near Villers-Bocage. Wittmann single handedly blunt a large British offensive attempting capture Caen. In this action Whitmann destroyed 22 British armored vehicles
August 8th 1944 would be Wittmann's last battle. Wittmann's last crew consisted of; SS-Unterscharführer Karl Wagner as gunner, SS-Sturmmann Günther Weber as loader, SS-Unterscharführer Heinrich Reimers as driver, and SS-Sturmmann Rudolf 'Rudi' Hirschel as bow machine gunner and radio operator. Much controversy has surrounded Wittmann's death. Both Polish and British unit claim destroying his Tiger.
Wittmann's remains were located in 1982 and buried in France in 1983 at the Germany cemetery at La Cambe in Normandy.

Funny...I thought the Spartans were the best of all time.
They are "up there" in the rankings.
The truth is neither right or left...it is the truth.
The worst lesson a man can learn is to depend on others and whine about his suffering.
Elements of the Waffen SS committed atrocities, in part because SS commanders were more likely to be fanatic Nazis than regular Army commanders, and because some SS commanders (like some Army commanders) were straight-up political appointees.
But the top Waffen SS units were also clearly elite military formations.
The 2nd SS Panzer Division "Das Reich" is a good example of both -- notorious for some of its war crimes, but also without a doubt one of the best combat divisions in the war.
Think. *Then* post.
Stultus populus, non loqui.
Read this man. Listen to this man.
He was one of the greatest sons of the west, who upheld all that was beautiful in us.
Don't be a vassal for the destroyers of the west by demonizing him. Our misled fathers have done that for a half-century now, and we know how much uglier the world has become for upholding the opposite of what this man (and his brothers of the Occident, our own forefathers in Europe and America) preached.
He won't be coming back, but he didn't sit around wishing when he saw the west being conquered by an alien; he took all of THE VALUES OF THE WEST that made it beautiful, and embodied them in himself as a standard for all to rally around.
We can't go back, nor do we want to, nor would he want to. He picked up the standard that his forefathers dropped and the 'Weimar Republic' and other aliens were stomping all over.
You must pick up that standard and carry it for all to see, and not his standard that is burnt and battered, but your own which is made of the same elements as his and his (our) forefathers.
You must be that standard the best you can. You cannot simply be words. You must live as a standard of the values of our forefathers, not as an anachronism, but as the man of the healed, revitalized, STRONG AND HEALTHY west who all others will be inspired by.
