The Real Nazi Killers

The men of Easy Company at Hitler’s “Eagle’s Nest”, 1945 –

Toward the end of World War II, American soldiers of Easy Company were assigned to occupation duty in Germany, specifically to Berchtesgaden, which was home to Adolf Hitler’s famous Eagle’s Nest. Specifically, the duty of capturing the Kehlsteinhaus was given to the 101st paratroopers unit.

Berchtesgaden changed from a strategic to a prestige objective. This was the place where Hitler had planned his conquest of Europe, the place where he had hosted heads of state, the place where the German dictator had relaxed and held forth on various topics to an intimate retinue of party cronies. It was the second seat of government outside of Berlin. Every Allied unit in the area, whether French or American, desperately wanted to capture Berchtesgaden. The unit that did so would win for itself historical immortality as the conquerors of the crown jewel of Hitler’s empire.

Valenti, one of the soldiers of the 7th Infantry Regiment recalled his visit to Hitler’s residence: “We couldn’t believe what we saw. The walls were covered with shelves and the shelves were stocked with all kinds of wines, champagnes and liqueurs. The food bins were well stocked with a variety of canned hams, cheese and two-gallon cans containing pickles.” Valenti and his friends sat in Hitler’s great room, where he had once entertained heads of state, and drank his wine. Before the war, Valenti, the son of Italian immigrants, had been a coal miner. He never dreamed he would get to see something like this. He persuaded a buddy to take a picture of him lounging on the hillside next to Hitler’s house.

    The Lord forever bless and keep them. We need three of them, maybe two, to turn antifa into red paste.

    Gee. They’re pretty old.

    Might need three.

    I have a photo of my Pop sitting in Hitler’s Chair, as he put it. He never talked much about what he did, but he did talk about how hard the war was on the women and children. Fifty years later it still make him unbearably sad.

    The Greatest Generation.

    I usually post about D Day, maybe VE Day and often February 28th because of the Battle of Riva Ridge. Some whimpy retard tried to describe the men in a landing craft going into Normandy as Antifa.

    Excuse me. They may’ve been, many of them, Roosevelt Democrats, but these storied heroes had no affinity at all with anarcho-communists at all. Different eras: different planet Earth. Anarchists? No nation on Earth, deep past, middle past, today: NO NATION has ever had more freedom from government as has the United States of America. We speak out. We bear arms. This is as close to anarchy (defined as no government) as the USA. We fukn threw the anal-poppers from England out on their collective ear. Twice. This is it: the revolution. We are: the USA.

    Fuk your retarded antifa and marxist black movement.
