Supply: Revisionist Historical past
German WWII Vet Evaluations ‘Saving Private Ryan’
April 28, 2019
Editor’s Word: I am proud to call Hans Schmidt, the writer
of the following, my pal. I’ve had the privilege and honor to know
several German WWII veterans personally, from Wehrmacht privates to Main-Common
Otto Ernst Remer, and I discovered each of them to be wonderful men and great human
In the annals of recent historical past, I don’t consider there are army
veterans who’ve had to face the ordeal of vilification and falsification
which these German veterans have endured. They are hated and reviled in
spite of the truth that they typically fought cleanly and honorably in a
conflict that may hardly be stated to have been of their selecting.
Having met these males in the flesh, my intellectual convictions about
the horrors of the fratricide that was World Struggle Two have been confirmed emotionally
and personally. To treat these blood brothers of People because the enemy
was the actual “war crime.”
Spielberg’s “Pvt. Ryan” is about saving a surviving brother
from the destiny which befell his different siblings in the American military. However
concern only for the lifetime of the brother in American uniform is fatally
short-sighted. Saving Personal Fritz was just as crucial. To assume in any other case
is to interact in deadly self-hate masked by the slick celluloid of Spielberg.
It’s this hatred for the image of the German stranger, who’s in truth
not a stranger, but the face in our own mirror, that is on the root of the
rot we observe right now in France, Britain and America. Where now’s the civilization
the Allied troopers died to preserve?
Contrary to Spielberg’s suggestion that Western, Christian civilization
was saved in WWII by the killing of Germans, the other obtained. One
can’t make so colossal a blunder as to mistake one’s own brother for the
enemy and compound that tragedy one million occasions and anticipate the restoration
I now present to you the only reaction I’ve so far seen to “Saving Private Ryan” from a type of brothers our American countrymen sought to destroy. –Michael A. Hoffman II

Pricey Mr. Spielberg:
Allow me, a twice wounded veteran of the Waffen-SS, and participant
in three campaigns (Battle of the Bulge, Hungary and Austria) to remark
in your picture, “Saving Private Ryan.”
Having read most of the accolades of this undoubtedly profitable and,
let’s consider, “impressive,” film, I hope you don’t mind some criticism
from both a German and a German-American viewpoint.
Aside from the carnage instantly initially of the story, during
the invasion at Omaha Seashore, whereon I can’t comment as a result of I was not
there; most of the battle scenes seemed unreal.
You made some commendable efforts to offer authenticity via the
use of a number of items of original-looking German gear, as an example,
the Schützenpanzerwagen (SPW), the MG 42s, and the Kettenkrad.
And, whereas the looks of German infantry troopers of the common
Army within the Normandy bunkers was not nicely depicted, the Waffen SS in the
road preventing at the end of the film have been quite correctly outfitted.
My remark concerning the unreality of the battle scenes has to do with the
proven fact that the Waffen-SS would not have acted as you depicted them in “Personal
While it was a standard sight in battle to see both American and Russian
infantry congregate round their tanks when approaching our strains, this
not often if ever occurred with the Waffen-SS.
(The first People I saw in the course of the Battle of the Bulge have been about
a dozen lifeless GIs bunched around a burned-out, self-propelled, tracked howitzer.)
Moreover, virtually all the German troopers seen in “Private Ryan”
had their heads shaved, or wore intently cropped hair, one thing totally
in battle with reality. Maybe you have been complicated, in your mind, German
soldiers with Russians of the time.
Or else, your Jewishness got here to the fore, and also you needed to attract a direct
line back from at this time’s skinheads to the Waffen-SS and different German soldiers
of the Third Reich.
Also, for my unit you must have used 18 or 19-year previous boys as an alternative
of older guys. The typical age, together with basic officers of the heroic
Hitlerjugend division at Caen, was 19 years!
The scene the place the GI exhibits his Jewish “Star of David” medallion
to German POWs and tells them: “Ich Jude, ich Jude!” is so outrageous
as to be humorous.
I can inform you what German troopers would have stated to each other if
such an incident had truly ever occurred: “That guy is nuts!”
You don’t appear to know that for the typical German soldier of World Warfare
II, of whatever unit, the race, colour or “religion” of the enemy
didn’t matter in any respect. He didn’t know and he didn’t care.
Moreover, you dedicated a critical error in judgment when, within the opening
scenes of “Private Ryan” you had the digital camera pan from the lone
grave with the Jewish star to all of the Christian crosses in the cemetery.
I do know what you needed to say however I am positive that I was not the one one
who immediately thereafter glanced over all the other lots of of crosses
one might see, to find whether some place else was another Star of David.
And you already know the answer. In truth, you generated exactly the other
impact of what you had meant. Your use of that scene makes a lie out
of the declare now put forth by Jewish organizations that in World Conflict
II Jews volunteered for service in numbers larger than their proportion
of the overall population, and that their blood sacrifice was (subsequently)
I visited the massive Luxembourg army cemetery where Common Patton
is buried and counted the Jewish stars on the gravestones. I used to be shocked
by their absence.
After World Struggle I, some German Jewish leaders mounted the same ruse:
They claimed then and still do to today that, “12,000 Jews gave
their lives for the Fatherland,” which would also have made their common
participation larger, which it was not. But maybe the “12,000”
figure is intended as a logo denoting, “from our viewpoint, we
During World Conflict II, as now, a few quarter of the American inhabitants
thought-about itself German-American. Understanding the patriotic fervor German-People
harbor for America, we might be sure that their numbers within the Armed Forces
have been equal or larger than their proportion of the inhabitants.
But in “Saving Private Ryan” there was not one single German
identify to be heard or seen among the many People.
Did you overlook Nimitz, Arnold, Spaatz and even Eisenhower? Nicely, perhaps
Capt. Miller from Pennsylvania was a German whose identify had been anglicized.
In omitting the American Germans you seem to have taken a cue from the White
House at whose modern state dinners not often someone with a German identify
could be found.
Nicely, perhaps someone thinks that the abundance of German sounding names
corresponding to Goldberg, Rosenthal, Silverstein and Spielberg satisfies the need
for “German-American” representation.
My remaining remark considerations the depictions of the capturing of German POWs
instantly after a fireplace battle. A perusal of American World Conflict II literature
signifies that such incidents have been rather more widespread than is usually admitted,
and most of the time, such transgressions towards the laws of struggle and
chivalry are sometimes or often excused, “as a result of the GIs acquired mad at
the Germans who had simply killed certainly one of their dearest comrades”.
In different phrases, the anger and the warfare crime following it was each understandable
and, ipso facto excusable. In “Private Ryan” you appear to agree
with this stance because you permit solely one of many troopers, specifically, the
acknowledged coward, to say that one does not shoot enemy troopers who had
put down their arms.
As a former German soldier I can guarantee you that among us we didn’t
have this, what I might name, un-Aryan mindset.
I keep in mind properly, when in January of 1945 we sat along with ten captured
People after a fierce battle, and the GIs have been genuinely stunned that
we treated them virtually as buddies, with out rancor.
If you wish to know why, I can inform you. We had not suffered from years
of anti-enemy hate propaganda, as was the case with American and British
troopers whose primary sense of chivalry had typically (however not all the time) been dulled
by watching too many anti-German conflict films often made by your brethren.
(In your info: I by no means saw even one anti-American warfare film–
there were no extra Jewish directors at the UFA studios.)

Saving Public Fantasy
From the essay TOM TURTLE ON THE RED CARPET:
“Next up was Steven Spielberg, who everyone knows directed Hanks in several movies, including Airplane, Poltergiest, and Joe versus the Pooch. Who can forget that moving scene in the latter where Private Joe Ryan fights his way across the killing fields of Belgium to reach the lunar module? And who could misremember those now legendary words, ‘Houston, have a box of chocolates!’ And who could have failed to be genuinely touched by honest human feeling when Ed Harris in a beret admits to him that the Moon is really a big metal beach ball? And who among us could have left the theater dry-eyed when Meg Ryan, playing Matt Damon, had to shoot ‘Pooch’ after his heroic fight with a rabid Nazi coyote? I myself felt positively sick with remorse until I saw one of Sally Field’s puppies steal some cornbread from Colonel Klink, at which point I understood that man was not meant to land on a big metal beach ball over a plastic ocean. No, he was meant to escape through a side door painted like fake clouds, where he could rendezvous with Kate Winslet. Anyway, Spielberg had some very poignant words for Hanks, whom he had always treated as a sort of challenged stepson. Pointing at Billy Crystal (sitting in a highchair nearby), Spielberg recommended that Hanks study his career closely: Billy, who had been presented not one but two Lifetime Achievement Awards before he hit the age of 40. Billy, who, if he followed the pattern of George Burns, could win as many as seven Lifetime Achievement Awards in one lifetime. Billy, who had not even needed to be in Bruce Almighty or Sleeping with Men in Philadelphia to cop Academy Awards for them. Billy, who, at some point in the late 90’s, had, by silent acclamation, been given the entire oeuvre of Alan Arkin, and any lifetime achievement awards that might produce in the future. Summing up, Spielberg admitted that he and George Lucas were really the same person, one on flubber and one not.”
This holocaust business by no means happened in America but People are paying the worth. Spielberg: People will not be in abeyance to Jews and their definitions of free speech, so cease fuel lighting us.

Steven Spielberg Calls for Obligatory Holocaust Indoctrination in US Faculties
Might 7, 2018 | by Corey Daniels
Renegade Editor’s Word: Individuals thought Parkland’s “Holocaust Class” was a joke, but when Spielberg will get his approach, our youngsters gained’t have the ability to graduate highschool with out being endlessly indoctrinated with this completely debunked story of 6 million Jews getting gassed in showers.
Oy Vey! At a panel dialogue over the weekend marking 25 years since the release of Schindler’s Record (thoughts you, a movie that is fictional!), Hollywood film director Steven Spielberg stated that each public excessive faculty in america must be required to teach the Holocaust.
“It’s not a prerequisite to graduate high school, as it should be,” Spielberg stated through the panel discussion held after a special screening of his 1993 movie at the Tribeca Movie Pageant. “It should be part of the social science, social studies curriculum in every public high school in this country.”[Read Steven Spielberg Urges Mandatory Holocaust Education from JPost]
Heather O’Rourke was chosen by Spielberg after he apparently “noticed her in a mall.” O’Rourke at 5 years previous was then in Spielberg’s 1982 movie Poltergeist that he wrote and produced.
Owen Benjamin’s revelations (Owen has a dream) of Hollywood and Spielberg are a bit unsettling, so if readers are not sure don’t pay attention.
Take pleasure in, the finest army to have ever set foot on a battlefield, the Waffen SS the best way they actually have been and never how Spielberg distorted them in his movie Saving Personal Ryan. And keep in mind, that is the Waffen SS and not consultant of Hitler. It appears as if Hitler goes by means of a little bit of historic revision himself as properly. And let it’s recognized, there were many Jews who served in the Waffen SS together with officers and enlisted, greater than we will say for the fashionable United States Army.
Spielberg, these 150,000 Jewish soldiers who served in the Waffen SS need a film. And to honor them what about a few of the biggest guitar enjoying ever with Steve Hackett enjoying Dark As The Grave; as a result of that’s where we’re all headed – and it’s dark.
