The Nazi women who were every bit as evil as the men:
Daily Mail ^ | 26th September 2013 | Tony Rennell

Posted on 09/26/2013 11:57:40 AM PDT by the scotsman

Blonde German housewife Erna Petri was returning home after a shopping trip in town when something caught her eye: six small, nearly naked boys huddled in terror by the side of the country road.

Married to a senior SS officer, the 23-year-old knew instantly who they were.

They must be the Jews she’d heard about — the ones who’d escaped from a train taking them to an extermination camp.

But she was a mother herself, with two children of her own. So she humanely took the starving, whimpering youngsters home, calmed them down and gave them food to eat.

Then she led the six of them — the youngest aged six, the oldest 12 — into the woods, lined them up on the edge of a pit and shot them methodically one by one with a pistol in the back of the neck.

This schizophrenic combination of warm-hearted mother one minute and cold-blooded killer the next is an enigma and one that — now revealed in a new book based on years of trawling through remote archives — puts a crueller than ever spin on the Third Reich.

Because Erna was by no means an aberration. In a book she tellingly calls ‘Hitler’s Furies’, Holocaust historian Professor Wendy Lower has unearthed the complicity of tens of thousands of German women — many more than previously imagined — in the sort of mass, monstrous, murderous activities that we would like to think the so-called gentler sex were incapable of.'

Anyone with any experience with American women who vote Democrat will not be surprised. Shrewish harpies who overflow with hate. Many such women get elected to office nowadays.

If anyone says there would be no wars if women ran the world, you can always look up Catherine the Great of Russia, Elizabeth 1 of England, Mary 1 of England, Isabella of Castille, Elena Ceauescu, Winnie Mandela and the Mongols. Now, it sure looks like you can add these female Nazis to that list too.

When I read stuff like this, I get sick to my stomach.

Is this what Statism can do? Are Germans somehow morally defective monsters, or can any group of people be made to behave so horrifically?

Disgusting. They should all have been hanged.

Spirited: I think you’re right. Augustine said that hate eventually burns up the ability to love, empathize, and feel compassion.

I wouldn’t put Catherine the Great, Elizabeth I or even the Mongols in the same category as these degenerates.

How could a society which was once viewed as so culturally advanced, allow such a monster as Hitler to so twist their minds and hearts?

In the sixties, these sorts of tales were the stuff of racy magazines. The women were somewhat better looking, and the stories were thought to be fiction. Made up perhaps, but not fiction.

I’m a sometime grammar Nazi. Sorry about that. The sad thing is that we are seeing the same fundamental transformation here. To those educated by the government, Conservatives are subhuman.

That’s fair, but I do think the general point about how “if women ran the world there would be no war” still holds true and that it becomes much more true as we learn the stories of the female Nazis.

Power, totalitarianism, and tribalism are temptations that cause ordinary people to sometimes do despicable things.

The Nazi's, Maoists, and Stalinists are special cases of extreme, but nothing new. Romans, Cromwellians, Rwanda, Radical Islam today.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

Yep, Hillary would have been right at home with the Nazi women.

Right after returning to the White House after giving his oath at his first inaugural, she handed him five pro-abortion executive orders which he promptly signed.

And then they danced.

Not just Germans. Any group of people can be made to behave as she did. Rwandan genocide of 1994. Nearly fifty thousand hacked to death with farm implements. In the first 48 hours. Many of the killers were just boys. They stopped only when simply too exhausted to continue swinging a machete.

“Is this what Statism can do? Are Germans somehow morally defective monsters, or can any group of people be made to behave so horrifically?”

This kind of a mentality is justified throughout the history of Socialism.

Like “the Butcher of Leningrad”, who knew he was destroying his own soul acting as the Political Executioner for the Reds, but he was comforted in knowing that murdering thousands for political reasons would help create “The Great Socialist Future” that he wouldn’t live to see.

There are an awful lot of skeletons piled high on the Altar of Socialism....

It's been routinely observed in history that the women of the species are capable of as much, or even more, cruelty then the men.

Comanche Indian women were given the task of torture of the captured, and Rudyard Kipling writes of the Afghanistan "women who come out to cut up what remains".

From my reading of such things as Christian martyrdom and other incidents of torture, it has been demonstrated throughout time that otherwise perfectly sane and rational people - anyone - can descend into sadistic brutality with relative ease. It's a frightening thought, but it has been shown over and over again. This article simply provide yet more empirical evidence.

I firmly believe that demonic forces whip people into a blood-lust frenzy. I also believe that some people, perhaps legions of people at a time, can and do become possessed by demonic spirits. Read this article again and try to otherwise explain what these sadistic women did.

"And to even put Riefenstahl in the same group with this woman is ridiculous."

She put gypsy prisoners from concentration camps in her films as extras.

A telegram from her to Hitler after the Nazis conquered France: "Your deeds exceed the power of human imagination. They are without equal in the history of mankind. How can we ever thank you?"

After reading Mein Kampf she said, "The book made a tremendous impression on me. I became a confirmed National Socialist after reading the first page. I felt a man who could write such a book would undoubtedly lead Germany. I felt very happy that such a man had come"

And last but not least she made numerous Nazi propoganda movies displaying the Aryian racial superiority. The most famous of these of course is "Triumph of the Will".

Yeah, we have no evidence that she pulled the trigger on killing anyone, but it wouldn't shock me to hear that she did. Yes, she was a big denier after the war. blah, blah, blah. Just remember, a lot of the women in this article were just secretaries typing up the orders to gas Jews. Are they any more culpable than someone like Riefenstahl?

The lesson from Germany is that it can happen anywhere. England - Cromwell, US - American Indian relations

I see a LOT of these type of totalitarians from the academic left. Peter Singer. Bill Ayers. Ward Churchill. They all have a lot of useful idiots with them as well.

Anti-fascism is the new fascism. Same shit. Different name.

“...If anyone says there would be no wars if women ran the world...”

I know, it’s so ridiculous to think that way - women who are supposed to become nurturing mothers kill their own preborn children. It is war and the liberals love it.

Also - feminist abortion supporters use the argument that the unborn fetus is not a person anyway - this is same justification the Nazis used to kill Jewish people - trying to label them as non persons.

In all fairness:

The British women who ARE every bit as evil as the men.

“Ironically, it was the professional carers OF THE NHS who were the first to be caught in this evil web. From the moment the LABOUR GOVERNMENT came to power and imposed policies of WHIMSICAL ABORTION AND EUTHANASIA, countless nurses, CONSERVING their aprons filled with EXPENSIVE morphine vials and needles, routinely STARVED TO DEATH the physically disabled, INCAPACITATED, INFANTS AND ELDERLY PEOPLE. PERHAPS 30,000 EACH AND EVERY YEAR.”

Riefenstahl made two features for the Nazis, neither of which had any racialist or anti-Semitic content. Trimumph of the Will is a record of the 1934 Nuremberg rallies and Olympia is a record of the 1936 Olympics. I put her in the same group with Winnifred Wagner...someone with poor judgment who was seduced by Hitler’s personal magnetism. Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman was also taken with the Nazis as a young man. It all looked so shiny at first.

And btw she didn’t get any Oscars or accolades. But when she visited Hollywood in the late 1930s, the only studio head who would meet with her was Walt Disney. You could see the influence of her films on Bambi.
