It was 75-years ago today that, after manufacturing a casus belli, Germany invaded Poland.
The Gleiwitz incident was a false flag operation by Nazi forces posing as Poles on 31 August 1939, against the German radio station Sender Gleiwitz in Gleiwitz, Upper Silesia, Germany (since 1945: Gliwice, Poland) on the eve of World War II in Europe. The goal was to use the staged attack as a pretext for invading Poland.
This provocation was the best-known of several actions in Operation Himmler, a series of unconventional operations undertaken by the SS in order to serve specific propaganda goals of Nazi Germany at the outbreak of the war. It was intended to create the appearance of Polish aggression against Germany in order to justify the subsequent invasion of Poland.
Britain honored its treaty obligations to Poland, declaring war against Germany on September 3rd.
Given the defects in the Jesus story line, it is frightening that the Republican Party has allowed itself to be hijacked by those who continue to claim the Bible is inerrant and literally “the word of God.” The GOP might just as well allow itself to be ruled by nursery rhymes.
“… ruled by nursery rhymes.” I might plagiarize that and use it myself some day.
