"Poland contained many Jews, many people of mixed blood... who are only happy when they are dominated."
A real German hero.
But on the bright side he's spit roasting with the rest of those b***ards in hell.R.I.H.(I wonder if any of the coup plotters had a pure motive or were they all Jew-hating scumbags)
Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg
There was a German Admiral who was a real hero. I'm trying to think of his name. Hitler had him executed after the attempted assassination.
Very interesting person, he helped organize the resistance to hitler. Hitler sent him to spain to convince Franco to join the war, and to access how easy it would be to send German troop there if necessary. He spent his time there doing the exact opposite. He convinced Franco to stay out, and lied to Hitler about how hard it would be to send troops to Spain.
He was the head of the military intelligence for the germans. I watched a tv show, where the announcer expressed amazement that the Allieds were so completely able fool the germans. I remember thinking it's easy to fool them when the head of military intelligence passionately wants Hitler defeated.
Admiral Wilhelm Canaris (1887-1945)
Chief of the Abwehr (1935-1944)
Like Rommel, he only turned on Hitler when Germany started losing the war.
You'll recall Ronald Reagan took Claus' nephew to the Bitberg cemetary (Jewish war heroes, iirc) and caught crap for it.
German FR posters report Claus is revered there, and not because he was a Jew hater, but because he helped end the shame Germany felt because of Hitler.
A hint: "Not that there's anything wrong with it!"
No, theres not, but I have blonde hair and blue eyes, Im Irish/Scot/Welsh.
I've been mistaken as a German before. I was just curious...
It's a joke. Look at Nazi artwork and then figure it out.
Ashamed of Hitler as failed military strategist or genocidal maniac? Like he never read Mein Kampf? Like he did'nt know Jews were being stripped of their buinesses and fortunes? Kristallnacht? None of this was a secret.Maybe I should give Bin Ladin a break for his early indoctrination? The real heroes were gassed and turned into ashes.The real heroes took a stand in Warsaw.
B) or are you talking out of your butt?

A)failed military strategist?

If you want to learn something, trouble yourself with some of the earlier posts re: Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, Chief of the Abwehr. Canaris himself was godfather to a small group of officers in Berlin and Paris known as the Kreisau Circle. One of the leaders of the Circle was a bright young Eastern Front veteran, Col. Klaus Schenck von Stauffenberg. He would be the officer who would deliver the suitcase containing the bomb to Hitler's headquarters in Rastenberg, East Prussia...
The answer is C) Answer the question. Did Stauffenberg try to kill Hitler to sue for peace with the Allies or because of his opposition to mass murder? Hey, if I'm wrong I'll admit it BUT PROVE YOUR POINT FIRST.
Genocide was the stated reason Canaris, Stauffenberg and the rest of the group opposed Hitler. I have seen zero evidence, and know of no evidence that political gain was their motivation. Attached links here confirm, whereas you have provided nothing but your own uneducated theory.
What is this?
