27. Thank you for posting the entire quote from Goering.
Edited on Sun Apr-23-06 03:42 PM by vickitulsa
I use that first (condensed) version of the quote from Goering as my sigline in my emails. But it's even more powerful to read the full transcript from the recordings Gustave Gilbert made during the Nuremburg trials.

I've heard that Goering did not actually utter those words IN the trial setting, but that Gilbert made tape recordings of his interviews with the prisoners in their quarters, and that's where we get the Goering quote.

Somehow it's even more powerful when you read it in the conversational context. I can almost hear it in the German, as Goering laughs and blusters throughout his commentary! I wish someone with the means to do so would put that full quote up on huge billboards across the land ... just reading that a few times ought to wake a few Americans up!

At least it is encouraging that we see almost NO Americans crowding the streets with arms upraised in salute to GWB these days ... rather there are some courageous enough to take to the streets to PROTEST his actions and MOCK HIM! The more we rise up, I say, the less confident Boosh and his thugs will be that they can continue to get away with their "evildoings."

Goering, Hermann Wilhelm. 1893-1946.

German Nazi politician and military leader who was responsible for the buildup of German air forces, directed the German wartime economy, and was named Hitler's successor (1939). Severely criticized for Germany's military decline, he lost favor with Hitler and was stripped of his command (1943). After he was convicted and sentenced to death at the Nuremberg trials (1946), he committed suicide.

Wouldn't hurt if the fascists in power in America right now read the short bio of this Nazi and contemplate their own possible ends....
