A side effect of spreading false propaganda is that you run the risk of having your audience believing all manner of ridiculous things. When I was elementary school, I, too, believed that Hitler wanted to kill everyone who didn’t have blonde hair and blue eyes.
Young children are not the only ones to believe this story. Another user in the CoDoH forum linked to a Yahoo! Answers post on this topic that has since been taken down. Fortunately, it has been archived. “SniperBaby” asks why Hitler thought blonde hair and blue eyes were perfect. They also state that they don’t remember hearing an explanation yet they are still willing to believe it. This is the result of a lifetime of “Hitler bad” programming.
Disturbingly, none of the answers (that are still accessible) say that maybe the blonde/blue eyed thing could be a misconception. In the “favorite answer,” the user asserts that Mengele was obsessed with twins because Hitler wanted him to devise a way the German population could grow faster. Mengele’s answer? Find a way to make women to give birth to twins! Not only does someone actually believe this, but they typed it out for the world to see.
Falling further down the “things people believe about the Nazis” rabbit hole, I found the following Quora entry. 1.5 thousand people upvoted this incredibly pedestrian and incorrect take by “historian” Alex Mann. Accusing Hitler of wanting to conquer Europe is something they tell people that don’t know history to make them hate Hitler. Therefore to repeat it with such confidence shows that Alex Mann only has a superficial understanding of WW2 (or it is possible he is being malicious). Alex can get away with this lack of understanding because the people upvoting him also have a superficial understanding of WW2.
I’m going to employ Alex Mann’s Emperor Hadrian avatar as a segue into my last point even though it’s actually about Ancient Greece.
Another example of White history being distorted in a negative way is the charge that Ancient Greece was a homosexual paradise. I bring this up because I just found this video debunking this claim and because it is a piece of the same problem—that problem being the distortion of White European history for nefarious purposes.
The idea of a great civilization openly accepting homosexuality is used as a argument for allowing open homosexuality today. The Holocaust myth is used to paint the White people that would unite to work in their own racial self-interest as evil. To tackle and correct the misconceptions that serve to harm the spirit of White people is a daunting task, especially when you are up against the giants like mainstream media and academia. Do not despair. Despite all the propaganda, despite all the programming, despite all the censorship, there are still people out there who refuse to just listen and believe. The work of revisionists and the people spreading the truth is making a difference!
