Holocaust Victims

Was the holocaust victims psychodemographic profile that of a liberal.
Was the holocaust victims psycological profile that of a liberal? Or simply put, were the holocuast victims liberals? Are not socialist, Unionist, communist, and anarchist forms of liberal or progressive thought? Were not individuals as these thrown in to the holocaust camps? Stalin and Hitler in my book were totalitarian dictators -and as such are at war with progessive thought or behaviour. Were the jewish communities that were distroyed also liberal communities?

My point -are social purges are a means to control liberals in society.

If by liberal you mean the Jews were against the prevailing majority opinion of killing them, then they must have been.

Ad Hominem (Personal) Attacks on The Messenger 13.Nov.2003 10:58

Ms Voltaire

Ad Hominem (Personal) Attacks on The Messenger rather than addressing the issues raised usually indicates one of two things 1) That the poster is ignorant of the issues or unintelligent or 2) that the facts are not on the posters side so he/she throws up a fog of vcious personal attacks, lies, and smears.
In WWII 55 million members of "the left" were murdered by the oligarchic installed Nazis and Fascists. US an European oligarchs installed and funded the European fascists, before, during, and after WWII to prevent a worker's revolution (the "left") in Europe and to attempt to overthrow the Soviet Union. 28 million Soviet citizens alone were murdered (18 million civilians, 4 million POWs). 7.5 million Polish citizens were murdered (6 million civilians) and "the left" (anyone advocating for the workers in society vs the parasitical oligarchs) were murdered through out the occupied countries. Why may you ask do you only hear about the fascist version of history wherein the proverbial lone nut Hitler appears out of no where and murders select racial groups because he is crazy and evil? The answer is this fake history takes the spotlight off the culprits: the oligarchs who own society. McCarthyism assured that you would be taught fake history. Similary, the oligachic installed Japanese fascists murdered 30 million Chinese communists (The Figure that the Chinese themselves publish and I believe them not the self serving lies of the historically lying fascists) and "the left" through out the islands they occupied. Ask yourself why did McArthur abandon the US Troops in the Phillipines???? It it is known that they revolted and refused to fight with the Japanese against the HUKs (the Phillipine Communists) Start thinking. Since WWII the US Corporate Regime has murdered an additional 30 million members of the "left" (anyone for those of us who work for a living: defacto wage slaves of the plutes). read the book "Killing Hope" by William Blum. "Understanding the F-Word: American Fascism and the Politics of Illusion" by David McGowan for a start.
