Proof: Catholics Caused the Holocaust!
Creative Minority Report ^ | January 6, 2012 | Matthew Archbold

Posted on 01/06/2012 12:53:11 PM PST by NYer

In 1894, a four year old boy was playing near the icy waters of the River Inn in Passau, Germany. The young boy fell into the river and was drowning when another boy, Johann Kuehberger, leapt into the river and saved the boy.

Kuehberger, who jumped into the river to save the boy, grew up to be a priest.


The little boy who was saved was named Adolf Hitler and he grew up to be the Fuhrer.

Yup. The Daily Mail today reports that old newspaper archives have now seemingly confirmed this long rumored incident. They're calling it "the most devastating act of mercy in history."

It's a pretty wild find, I must admit.


The story was never verified by Hitler during his lifetime. But now a small cutting from the Donauzeitung - Danube newspaper - of 1894 has been found in Passau.

It describes how a 'young fellow' fell through the thin ice of the river in January of that year.

The report described how a 'determined comrade' - the paper at the time was left-wing - went into the freezing water to save the child who would grow into mankind's biggest monster.
So for anyone who wants to blame the Holocaust on the Catholics, now you can. Hey, they were doing it anyway.

The brother of John Wilkes Boothe, Edwin Boothe was on a train platform in Jersey City New Jersey. There was a bit of crowding as passengers were trying to buy tickets and Robert Lincoln, son of the assassinated president, fell between a moving train and the platform. Edwin Boothe grabbed him by the collar and pulled him to safety.

If this story is real - and the incident truthful - it shows one thing - we all have choices to make...despite one making the right choice - doesn’t mean the other who chooses to do wrong - can lay blame on the the person that demonstrated true compassion.

Hitler would not have risen to power had he not blamed someone - he rose on fear, violence, and oppression - and like the many before him that did the same - he fell in the fire that he made...saving a child is good deed - but even if that other boy had been told what could have happened - or what would happen - would he have made a different choice? Standing there to watch an other child drown...it would be easy to answer that question now...but what as it occurred...

Blaming the Catholics or a priest-—had nothing to do with it...Hitler and his rogue band of deviants where going to do what they did...it was their choice!

Fidel Castro saved the life of a drowning priest. He was a very humble, religious young man at that time.

They’re calling it “the most devastating act of mercy in history.” Oh yeah? There’s another one related to Hitler. Do a search of ‘Henry Tandey’.

That may have been the first time Hitler's life was saved by an unlikely twist of fate but it was hardly the last and none of those episodes had anything to do with any church.

Pistols misfired and bullets missed, bombs failed to go off, others were mistimed. And one that did explode was casually shoved to the other side of a table leg a few moments before by a general who was himself killed in the blast along with almost everybody else in the room, but left the Fuehrer with nothing more than busted ear drums and shredded trousers.

Oh, and the use of the word "comrade" (no doubt kamerad in German) was just a common way of saying friend or buddy and doesn't necessarily imply anything about the politics of the old newspaper. If 99% of the journalists on Earth went suddenly up in flames the average human IQ on the planet would measurably rise.

Hitler was in Austria when he was four years old. This story says the river is in Germany.

And this is how he repaid us for saving his life:

3 million were Catholics. 50 000 Catholic priests and religious also.

Town on the border.

>>Adolf Hitler was born in Braunau am Inn on 20 April 1889. He and his family left Braunau and moved to Passau in 1892.

Geez, don't let the pro-abortionists get a hold of this. We'll never hear the end of ‘if only abortion were legal back then, maybe that priest might have been aborted and not been around to save Hitler’. I can see these wackos going all over the place with this.

I would like to see the original German article--whether it used the word Kamerad, meaning friend or buddy, or Genosse (mate), which also meant "Comrade" in the Communist/Socialist sense.

The boy who was rescued was Hitler’s age, and the incident took place near his hometown, but the article doesn’t name him.

Hitler essentially became a German citizen, because of the German version of the DREAM act. Since he had fought in the German Army in WWI, while still an Austrian citizen, he was allowed to become a German Citizen in 1925.

Not to mention Genghis Khan and a few others. I read somewhere this past year that Genghis Khan destroyed so many farms and towns in central Asia that he changed the long-term weather patterns, as the entire region grew back to forest. He indicated that he wasn't anyone to mess with by leaving large pyramids of human skulls all over the place.

It frequently does. As C.S. Lewis put it, as human beings and especially as Christians we are operating in "enemy territory" and need to be aware of that fact and conduct ourselves accordingly. Of course, he wrote and broadcast that description in London during the middle of the Blitz in WWII.

It might and that's why I said "not necessarily". But on the whole it would be a little unusual for a daily paper in the heavily Catholic south of Germany (Passau is in Lower Bavaria, sort of the Texas of Germany) to have a Socialist or Marxist bent. Plus, I went on the assumption (safe, I think) that the writer of this article is a typical product of a journalism school education. But as always, I could be wrong.

Yes and he became a German in time for a ‘32 election by a bit of trickery acc to Rise and Fall of Third Reich—he was appointed to a position in the “state” of Brunswick and thus became a citizen of that state and Germany

Wiki:
>>Hitler formally renounced his Austrian citizenship on 7 April 1925, but at the time did not acquire German citizenship. For almost seven years Hitler was stateless, unable to run for public office, and faced the risk of deportation. On 25 February 1932 the interior minister of Brunswick, who was a member of the NSDAP, appointed Hitler as administrator for the state’s delegation to the Reichsrat in Berlin, making Hitler a citizen of Brunswick,and thus of Germany.
