General Eisenhower Warned Us

The following was sent to me as an email. I actually intended to send it on as an email. Then I thought better of that idea and decided it needed space in my blog. In just a few more days we will be called to the voting polls to vote not just for a new President, but on the very fate of this great country. Like it or not but this election is most likely to go down in history as one of those "turning points".

I think it is fair to say that each of us will carry into the voting booth our own personal beliefs as to just what the word "free" means. Of course that also means that what some will label as free others will label as "unfree", "bound", "restricted" or a host of other labels used to describe a loss of freedom. May all the Joe the Plumbers of this great land get out there and VOTE!

Read and heed... and be forewarned...

General Eisenhower Warned Us

It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect:

'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'

This week, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the,6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests

Who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beat, experimented on and humiliated' while the German people looked the other way!

Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people! Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center .. 'NEVER HAPPENED' ...because it offends some Muslim in the U.S. ???

Do not just delete this message; it will take only a minute to pass this along.


If you can read this... thank a teacher. If you can read this in English... thank a veteran.

God Bless America !

Please share the above quoted email with everyone you know. It is something to think about as we all prepare to go to the polls on Tuesday and vote as our consciences dictates.


  1. I hope you aren't freaking out at this very moment LOL.

    Don't worry, all will be well, or you can say I told you so.

    This was on Snopes a while ago. Basically, it was the history department in one school which did this, and depending on which email you got this became either "The holocaust might not be taught in UK schools", "The holocaust won't be taught in Kentucky schools" or else it said that this had already happened.

  3. Dear Simba:
    At the time I posted the above entry I had just finished quizzing several teens between the ages of 14 and 18. Not a one of them had been taught a single thing about the Holocaust in their respective high schools.

    This refraining from teaching is far more wide spread than most people realize or are willing to admit to and it scares those of us who do remember.
