the quote was of its time though... ;)
@wankiam Her "diary" was heavily edited by her father after she died so I wouldn't even be surprised if they weren't her words.

That's why I think when it comes to dating people should be more selfish. Because remember, most folks are self centered.
Not necessarily, he led a great country and revolutionized the economy of an ailing country. He was a beloved leader among his people. Propaganda demonized him after his death.
@FackThePackers21 sure, but he still killed millions of people, including his own people who wouldn't follow his guidelines. yes, he revolutionized the economy but look at the cost because of that. thank you for your reply
No not really, he wouldn't kill his own people if they weren't Jews or Communists. He was racist to the extent that he didn't want to bomb Britain because he considered them to be fellow powerful whites with "rich history," lmaoooo. It was actually Britain that was bombing German civilians first despite Hitler's peace talks.
@FackThePackers21 Are you straight up out of your fucking mind? What's your deal kid? White Pride, wannabe Nazi? How did you get this fucked up to think Hitler was a great leader, all his people loved him and it was only propaganda that demonized him after his death? Seriously, what is your mental defect?
@jakerson181 I try to look at history through an objective... and I'm not white. *facepalms*
@FackThePackers21 I can't imagine on what planet, in what universe someone looking at history objectively could reach the conclusions that Hitler was a great leader, beloved by his people who brought great economic success to his country and who's just gotten a bum rap by history. And the fact that you're not white makes your mental defect seem even more severe. Man, you must be some seriously self hating minority. *facepalms*
@jakerson181 Nice strawman argument there. Hitler was an bad man, but so was Winston Churchill. They both had their flaws and positive attributes. Try being unbiased.
@FackThePackers21 Strawman argument? You mean repeating the argument you just made? And you're equating Churchill and Hitler? They both had flaws and positive attributes? Are you fucking kidding me? Get the fuck out of here with that crap, kid.
@FackThePackers21 You're 16 and clearly extremely immature. But as an experiment, go to school and tell your teachers "Hitler really was victim of propaganda after his death. People don't talk nearly enough about all the good things he did for Germany and how much of a beloved leader he was among his people." and see what their reactions are.
@jakerson181 Smh, looks like you've gotta relearn your history. Churchill killed millions in India (which was colonized by Britain at the time) by relocating their crops from there to Britain without the war. When questioned about the British-induced famine, Churchill replied "Let them die, they breed like rabbits." Moreover, Churchill's colonies in Africa endured intense suffering, rape, and oppression by the British during and even after WWII. But you've probably never even heard of this. I don't blame you. History is written by a victor.
@jakerson181 Yes, many of Hitler's acts were overexaggerated after his death. Most famously the Jesse Owens incident, in reality Jesse Owens IN HIS OWN AUTOBIOGRAPHY stated that Hitler had not snubbed him but in fact given him a smile and a salute. He claimed that it was FDR who snubbed him after winning as he was never invited to the White House. These are his words, not mine. Undoubtedly, Hitler committed a variety of war crimes and atrocities but many were over-exaggerated. This is due to the fact that before the US entered WWII, a large portion of Americans were supporting Germany. After a deal with Britain to gain proxy control of their colonies in the Middle East if they helped them win the war, America quickly began their propaganda campaign against the Axis powers. They were incredibly successful in demonizing Germany, and this motivated their soldiers all the more and encouraged more people to join the army. Of course I won't bring this up at school, I'd be labelled a "neo-nazi" immediately just like what you did to me. Have a nice day, if you need more info... just PM me.
@FackThePackers21 I've forgotten more about world history than you'll ever know so you can save the head shaking and condescending lecture about needing to relearn my history. I doubt most of what you claim about Churchill is true or at a minimum has been heavily skewed by people with an agenda. But regardless, this discussion is not about Churchill, it's about Hitler and your belief about all the positives he did for Germany and that history has dealt him a bum rap and ignored his positive attributes. I just can't emphasize enough how utterly ignorant those beliefs make you sound and how fucked up in the head you have to be, especially as someone who isn't white, to believe that. But seriously, have that discussion with your teachers and see if they think your head is as fucked up as I do.
@jakerson181 There you are, at it again with your bias. You must really have a chip on your shoulder to be cursing out teenagers on GAG. Get a life.
@FackThePackers21 I just read your last comment. What a complete load of bullshit. I don't know what right wing neo-nazi organizations you're getting your 'history" from but it's utter nonsense. There was nothing over exaggerated about the war crimes Hitler committed. I've visited Auschwitz. I've seen what he did first hand. Go read the transcripts of the Nuremberg Trials. Seriously, are you insane? And I should PM you for more of your revisionist Nazi approved history like you're some sort of history expert? You're an ignorant 16 year old kid who's easily been brainwashed. Get yourself some help.
@FackThePackers21 Dude, you are straight up nuts. Absolutely gonzo. Get the fuck out of here with your revisionist Nazi history.
