Who does remember the Armenian democide? Not Er Do(g) Can

 

 

Adolf Hitler, Chancellor of Nazi Germany (1933-45)


“Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”


[August 22, 1939]

My decision to attack Poland was arrived at last spring. Originally, I feared that the political constellation would compel me to strike simultaneously at England, Russia, France, and Poland. Even this risk would have had to be taken.

Ever since the autumn of 1938, and because I realized that Japan would not join us unconditionally and that Mussolini is threatened by that nit-wit of a king and the treasonable scoundrel of a crown prince, I decided to go with Stalin.

In the last analysis, there are only three great statesmen in the world, Stalin, I, and Mussolini. Mussolini is the weakest, for he has been unable to break the power of either the crown or the church. Stalin and I are the only ones who envisage the future and nothing but the future. Accordingly, I shall in a few weeks stretch out my hand to Stalin at the common German-Russian frontier and undertake the redistribution of the world with him.

Our strength consists in our speed and in our brutality. Genghis Khan led millions of women and children to slaughter — with premeditation and a happy heart. History sees in him solely the founder of a state. It’s a matter of indifference to me what a weak western European civilization will say about me.

I have issued the command — and I’ll have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by a firing squad — that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formations in readiness — for the present only in the East — with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space (Lebensraum) which we need.

Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?

Di cronaca di Aleppo ne leggiamo tutti i mesi. Ma adesso una giornalista arabo-israeliana dice: “Olocausto”.

http://www.lastampa.it/2016/12/17/multimedia/esteri/ad-aleppo-c-lolocausto-e-io-provo-vergogno-lo-sfogo-della-giornalista-tv-EUa70cEkM1bVVKZre4vvpL/pagina.html

Le cose col loro nome, che le determina: “il ratto di Aleppo.”

Determinismo linguisitico: filosofia del’900. Che penserà quella del xxi?


Olocausto non è il nome giusto nemmeno per la Shoah: cfr Giorgio Agamben (il suo libro sulla Shoah, ed i corsi a Verona).

Prove di genocidio a fondazione Schmittiana dei nuovi assetti mediorientali multipolari senz’America. Se Dubrovnic e Serajevo era la iii guerra mondiale (e lo è stata, ancora con lo schieramento obsoleto da guerra fredda, ma il fascista Mitterrand, l’assassino dei F.lli Rosselli, saltafossi con Milosevic ad Est)…

Qui invece è iii Millennio, comincia la IV WWWar – stavolta l’Europa non c’entra più se non come refugium peccatorum; e (cari cani, cagne di Goro e di un abbruttito Veneto dei distretti falliti) identità:

> Rifugiati=Autrui (Emmanuel Levinas); 

pietra di paragone (nella neo-periferia geopolitica della nano – europa piena d’armi del tutto inutili, perché prive di una Hybris che abbonda in ChinAmerika) della NUOVA LOTTA-NON-DI-CLASSE:

– DEGLI OPEN CONTRO I CLOSED,

– liberali et al. contro populisti ed i loro lacchè post-commies (capito mi avete, compagni non solo di scuola sociologi trentini?).

LA LOTTA INTRA-CLASSE MEDIA, che vede finalmente tornare a spaccarsi per passio politica le famiglie come ai miei tempi, 1960s, dividersi drammaticamente il popolo borghese-massa che sinora, dal pre- al post-Fordismo, si era omogeneizzato nell’Orgia Mimetica (cfr da Jung e Ortega y Gasset, a René Girard).

Fine della filippica, che esula come avete letto, prende solo lo spunto dallo STUPRO DI ALEPPO (in scala diversa e minore, ma fa pensare a quello di Nanchino, uno degli orrori assoluri del Sapiens). Tutta la vicenda Siriana poi, non è certo a scala minore di Nanchino.

… e poi c’è Aleppo in carne ed ossa, con la sua Anna Frank (se quel diario di Bana  – FOTO SOPRA –  e sua madre su CNN e twitter è vero come credo ed alla canaglia su twitter interessa negare), i suoi eroici, umili caschi bianchi, la imperfezione umana troppo umana della opposizione non terrorista, quelli della Rivoluzione democratica. 

 Bana Alabed, il suo appello a Michelle Obama  venerdi 16 dic. u.s., mentre la tregua per l’esodo era saltata:

– il 16 dic. parla anche lei, dopo la mamma Fatemah nell’appello-video a Michelle O.: https://twitter.com/RichardEngel/status/809770797640384512

– un articolo precedente che parla di Bana, ha ricevuto l’ultimo libro di Harry Potter dalla autrice  –  http://www.repubblica.it/esteri/2016/11/28/news/aleppo_sotto_i_bombardamenti_ultimo_tweet_di_bana_alabed-152990563/

La n.ma vittoria tattica dell’Iran nazista degli Ayatollah (premiati dalla sequenza di stupidaggini occidentali da Ground 0 ad oggi), ed i distinti ruoli di Israele (costretta, per sopravvivere all’accerchiamento, a bombardare sino a Damasco, dopo il rafforzamento della d’Alemiana Hezbollah ed il reclutamento persiano di un enorme esercito di ventura da tutto l’Islam in Siria), il popolo senza patria Kurdo, Russia, Turchia, e … US (sic).
