British Conservative weekly praises Hitler’s Wehrmacht


This 2011 video says about itself:

War crimes of the WehrmachtHannes Heer

Winner of the prestigious peace award at the Film festival of the independent film in Osnabrück Germany, this documentary investigates the historically very sensitive Nazi raid in the Dutch village of Putten in 1944 that left 700 villagers dead and murdered. After WWII only two of the 1000 involved German soldiers of the infamous second pantzer division had been trialed or convicted. Even today German bureaucracy denies that severe war crimes had taken place in Putten. On the threshold of oblivion investigates the whereabouts of some of the absolved perpetrators and director Ton Verheul tries to interview them.

During Hitler’s 1940-1945 occupation of the Netherlands, German military vehicles rode in the Netherlands. They had signs WH (Wehrmacht Heer=army), WL (Wehrmacht Luftwaffe=air force) or WM (Wehrmacht Marine=navy). Dutch people who did not like the occupation interpreted the abbreviations as WH=Wij Halen (we steal); WL=Wij Liegen (we lie) and WM=Wij Moorden=we murder.

British Columnist Calls Nazi Troops The Heroes Of D-Day

The JTA aricle does not name the magazine. It is The Spectator, closely connected to the governing British Conservative Party.

wrote a piece sympathizing with the Wehrmacht, the unified armed forces of Nazi Germany.

In the column by Taki Theodoracopulos, a Greek writer who lives in London and New York, the author asks readers to feel sorry for the 76,000 Germans, reserve troops who had “not trained in combat,” as they fought against 150,000 British, American and Canadian troops on Normandy Beach on D-Day.

“It might sound strange me writing … from a German perspective, but fair’s fair. I asked my companions which side they’d choose, and all of them agreed that the attacking forces had a better chance of survival than the defenders”, he wrote.

Taki runs his own website publication, Taki’s Magazine, described as a libertarian

‘Libertarian’ used to mean exclusively ‘anarchist’; until the term was stolen by right-wingers who want ‘liberty’ only for the 1% richest people.

webzine of “politics and culture” but which often dabbles in sympathy for the far right. In 1998 he accused Jews of “trafficking in the Holcoaust”, saying their “constant harping on about the Germans seems to be motivated by profit.”

The headline over his D-Day article changed during the day. The first headline read: “In praise of Wehrmacht: The real story of D-Day is the heroism of the German soldiers who were vastly outnumbered but fought nobly and to the death.”

An assembly of political bankrupts and warmongers assembled in Portsmouth, England, for the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the largest combined land, air and naval operation in history that heralded the final defeat of Hitler’s fascist armies in World War II: here.
