Skip to comments.'Everyone Lied to Me': Hitler's Rant in Bunker

Hitler told senior Nazis that "everyone has lied to me, everyone has deceived me" just eight days before he killed himself in his bunker, according to newly disclosed documents.
Guy Liddell, the former deputy director general MI5, includes in his diaries a Joint Intelligence Committee paper detailing Hitler's final days.
During a conference on April 22nd, 1945, Hitler gave a speech to his assembled generals and Heinrich Himmler, his minister of the interior.
The report states: "Hitler came in at 8.30 a completely broken man. Only a few army officers were with him. Himmler urged Hitler to leave Berlin.
"Suddenly, Hitler began to make one of his characteristic speeches. 'Everyone has lied to me, everyone has deceived me, non[sic] one has told me the truth.
'The armed forces have lied to me and now the SS has left me in the lurch. The German people has not fought heroically. It deserves to perish.
'It is not I who have lost the war, but the German people'."

That video that everyone uses from that hitler movie is awesome. I found out from someone here that the movie is “Downfall” and it is available in its entirety, with English subtitles (It’s a German film) on Youtube.
Of course they lied to you, for fear that they’d incur your wrath, you psychopathic dumbass. This isn’t uncommon with despots and dictators.
Yeah, despotic egomaniacs typically blame others for their failure. Look at Obama.
That video is depicting the situation conference on 4/22/1945, which is same one that’s being described here. Hitler had ordered General Felix Steiner to counterattack. Steiner’s unit had already lost 90% of its strength, and Steiner refused the order, leading to Hitler’s tirade.
Just can't catch a break!
Yep. That’s why I referred to it. As I read the article I thought, “This is nothing new. It’s how it was depicted in the movie.”
Steiners attack was an order!
Who are you to dare disobey my order?
So this is what it has come to?
The military has been lying to me!!
Everybody has been lying to me, even the SS!
Our Generals are nothing but a bunch of contemptible, disloyal cowards!
Downfall is a GREAT movie!
Proof positive that the pedigree of the Democrat Party is the National Socialists.
It's always someone else's fault.
Not helpful. Also, do you know anything about WWII, or how many people died. Maybe you wouldn’t make stupid jokes if one of your relatives died in combat in Europe?
Good help is always hard to find. And even poor help is getting expensive.
“This isn’t uncommon with despots and dictators.”
Nor with bad managers, bad bosses and bad parents.
One of the better-supported theories of what happened to the Iraqi WMDs is that Saddam thought he had WMDs. Would you want to be the guy who told him he didn’t?
A variant of this story is that an individual or group within the Iraqi establishment lied to him about the weapons and embezzled the money for development and deployment. Anybody who would do that has great big stainless steel balls.
Love that movie. Watch it periodically.
